With a tighter focus on the narrative and the use of footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, this edit attempts to provide Civil War with more of a mystery behind Zemo’s scheme as well as an alternate introduction to Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man

– Film now opens with Tony talking about the holographic technology
– No romance/flirting between Sharon and Steve
– T’Challa’s introduction as a vengeful Black Panther is not foreshadowed. Scene with Natasha after the Vienna bombing cut.
– Alternative introduction to Peter Parker using Spider-Man: Homecoming footage
– No split between Tony and Pepper (there’s a very good reason for that)
– More mystery to Zemo and his motivations, we only truly learn the extent of his scheming when the characters do
– New mid-credits scene using Homecoming footage.

Power Rangers Super Megaforce-Legendary Battle [Fanedit]

The shutdown of my Vimeo channel and the purging of many of my edits left me with enough free time to put together a revised version of older ones, and this one has always been a particular favorite.

Mixing together footage from the aborted MMPR fanfilm and material from the Death Battle between the Green Ranger and Ryu, as well as providing an alternative ending borrowed from the previous episode “The Wrath”, this take on the finale of Power Rangers Super Megaforce aims to give the show a bit more action, darkness and sense of definitive closure that the original version was lacking somewhat.

Doctor Who-The Bells of Saint John [Fanedit]

I put together a version of this in the past, but with a little more experience and a few new ideas, I’ve chosen to revisit it. Think of this one as the “Page One Edit”, named so because we get to find out just what “page one” and that whole deal with the leaf was all about before the episode ends, rather than wait for a filler pre-titles when you reach Rings of Akaten.

You might think I’m robbing Clara of any and all intrigue by tossing in her origin at the very end of this episode, but not only does her character have very little of that to begin with (as well as any sort of trait to go along with it), I thought it makes for a nice little subversion of the triumphant way the original cut ends, with The Doc having gained a new companion and the thrill of new adventure and mystery on the horizon. Here, he solves the mystery and is utterly perplexed by it. I think that serves as a better ending…don’t leave it with the feeling the Doctor WILL get to the bottom of things, point out very clearly that he CAN’T.

A mystery The Doctor can’t solve makes us worry, and makes us wonder. That is how you kick off a new series of adventures, that is what we call a jumping on point.

In addition to the new ending, I’ve gone in and added the prequel minisode from the series seven DVD as part of the pre-titles. While it’s a little too on-the-nose and doesn’t add much, I still think it’s a nice refresher course if you’re not too familiar with this stretch of the series or Clara.

A few scenes have been rearranged too. Clara accessing the wi-fi now comes before the helpless man’s ominous warning to the internet community, and I removed the whole talk about the Woman Twice Dead and The Doctor’s madness to better seaugeway into him receiving the phone call.

Doctor Who-The Pilot (Extremis Edition) [Fanedit]

The Pilot Extremis Edition

 

(To download, register at FE.Org and Private message “Zarius”)

This edit mergers the first episode of Doctor Who’s tenth series with three other episodes from that particular series, removing all the pretentious teasing of what’s inside The Vault that goes ultimately nowhere and has an obvious reveal handed to us within minutes of the episode

Extremis is the first part of the Monk trilogy, which really isn’t that much to write home about, other than virtually any scene that includes Michelle Gomez. It is that scenery chewing that compels me also to use the last few precious minutes of “The Lie Of the Land”, the conclusion to the trilogy, as a coda to this episode, replacing the original ending with The Doctor trying to wipe Bill’s mind of her adventure.

I’ve also decided to insert Bill and her friends finding a new house to live in from the episode “Knock, Knock”. This particular plot point doesn’t actually go anywhere in this edit, it’s just a nice little set up that gives us more of a slice of life with Bill, plus I like the atmosphere of Bill with mates more than putting up with her step-mum.

CHANGES
– Begin with original pre-credits scene from “The Pilot”
– After titles, we play some footage from “Extremis”
– “Knock Knock” footage takes over after Missy tells The Doctor to let her live
– Just as Bill is hesitant to sign the contract to move into the house, we cut to The Doctor’s “Time” lecture. Producer and director credit scenes cut
– We cut to “Extremis” footage after The Doctor says “It means life”
– We cut back to “The Pilot” after Nardole tells The Doctor he can kick his arse
– We cut back to “Extremis” after the Puddle establishes the link with the pilot
– White flash cross fade from “Extremis” to Christmas at the University in “The Pilot”
– Cut Heather meeting Bill outside the university and repeating what she says
– Cut the TARDIS landing in Australia
– Last of the “Extremis” footage plays after Bill notices her tears
– “Lie of the Land” ending used as final scene

Doctor Who-Twice Upon A Time (fanedit)

This episode could do with a nice spring clean.

There really isn’t a hell of a lot of point to the sexism deflection that this episode pads itself out with. Within the context of current history, I suppose there’s some fleeting relevancy, but Doctor Who ought to be timeless, and it’s characters should not be dragged down into political soap boxing, however subtle or unsubtle. This is what has killed the show for many a true fan, and as much as I still love the show, it does make me cringe a little too. It’s like attending a council meeting with your parents on a Sunday, reminding you of the real world awaiting you in the week ahead. What happened to weekend/holiday escapism?

So no, as I found out, the sexism need not exist at all, as you’ll find here…pretty minimal edit all the same, nothing too radical, just keeping it tightly focused on the adventure and not the agenda.

CHANGES

-Pre-titles are now the aborted regeneration sequence from “The Doctor Falls”

-Ben and Polly cut. On top of their “Nu Who” versions contributing little to the story , I never was a fan of the weird aspect ratio fidgeting.

-“I am younger” exchange removed

– References to Twelve as a nurse removed, also the exchange about the brandy and guitar are omitted as well as the sexist remarks about Polly

-Classic Doctor no longer says “sunglasses? Indoors?”, I found the initial reaction when he sees them better than anything spoken afterwards and it informs the audience of how he feels anyway

-We cut to Twelve putting the sonic shades on after Bill says she used to travel with him

-Bill and Twelve’s heated exchange edited out, as is Classic Doctor’s “smacked bottom” response.

-Cut Bill’s initial reveal as a member of Testimony. I hold it back a bit longer just for more of a shock reveal.

-First Doctor’s regeneration to Patrick Troughton cut in an attempt to, for one, avoid the aspect ratio fidgeting, and “fix” the continuity error of the Doctor collapsing before he opens the TARDIS door to let Ben and Polly back in.

Shortened Capaldi’s exit speech considerably. Decides to regenerate after he realizes the universe will get it all wrong without him.

Also, I chose to omit Jodie getting booted out of the TARDIS, partially because I intend to open my fanedit of her first episode with a reprise of the final scene of this episode, and when that happens, THEN you’ll see our feisty female cope with free-falling.

So long Moffat, off you go to give Dracula some bite…just don’t give him a cavity.

Power Rangers Samurai-Origins

Power Rangers Samurai

DOWNLOAD “ORIGINS” FANEDIT HERE

 

Power Rangers Samurai is a pretty poor season by Power Rangers standards, mostly translations of the Japanese scripts, minimal originality, unnecessary “mega modes” etc. What little home grown material we did get came in the form of needless comedy skits with the veteran character of the franchise’s early days Bulk and the son of his sidekick Skull, Spike.

What I’m working on now is a version of “Origins”, the premiere two-parter of Samurai, that does not include Bulk or Spike.

Changes so far

-Bulk and Spike scenes removed (except for the title sequence, just assume they will show up later in the series and not here, Antonio the Gold Ranger is also included in the titles despite not appearing at all).

-The search for Emily by Mia, Kevin and Mike

-All commercial fades removed.
