It had been many years since i last saw this movie (probably ever since it first came out) and i must say your work has indeed made it a much more enjoyable experience. The music really makes sense and is timely edited it, but just a little too loud in some points. Sadly Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carey’ acting in this film cannot be remade into a more truthful representation of the characters; but this makes it a good movie rather than a complete trainwreck. Kudos!
I am sorry but this was just not a very good edit. I had high hopes for seeing this and keep in mind I have not viewed The Red Book Edition yet…although now I wish I had. Paul, you can really tell this was one of your earlier works, the editing is nowhere as good as it was in Batman: Year One or Batman vs. Superman. There are many terrible cuts containing images that are on the screen for less than a second, the music gets repetitive and you can also hear the original score trying to be hidden. Your best bet would have been separating channels. And one of the biggest things that urked me and knew that this wasn’t going to be good was a typo in the credits, “Jim Carey” rather than Jim Carrey. Thank god you have gotten so much better.
i think most of the creative processing of the film works quite well, but the story really suffers here. unlike the mentioned “red book edition”, this doesn’t seem complete, and unfortunately seems to be the edit with the most potential. 3/5
