Brief Synopsis:
This is Casino without the Ginger/Lester storyline. The focus is kept on Ace and his casino; Nicky and his gangster antics.
Intention:
Keep the focus on Ace and his casino; Nicky and his gangster antics.
Additional Notes:
I like Casino even with Sharon Stone, but I wanted to see if it worked without the Ginger/Lester storyline. I tried to remove Ginger completely, but her presence is critical in one key scene (talking on the phones to fool the feds). So the best I could do is minimize her screentime. Now, instead of Ginger being part of Ace’s downfall, it’s Nicky who solely brings it about.

DVD version:

additional info:
by boon23: this is an encode I made from the quicktime movie, which is the only available source.
Of course the “perfect” picture and sound quality are ONLY on the ORIGINAL quicktime movie, available currently via bittorrent. As always I have put my best effort into making this still a good quality release, upgraded the rather weak 2.0 128kbit source sound into 5.1 and created from what I think some pretty cool menus, all with sound. The DVD version was created, because people like me prefer to watch on their TV using the comfort of a DVD player. But if you watch on your PC anyway, the best thing to do is to watch the quicktime movie. The DVD also features a trailershow of fanedit trailers, including the following trailers:
King Kong Vintage
Titanic – Jack Edit
Star Wars Reborn
Wing Commander – Countdown to Invasion
Blade 3 – Behead The King Edition
Star Wars – Rise Of The Empire
Superman III – The Smallville Cut
Editing Details:
- Removed most scenes involving Ginger. She has no major dialogue in the remaining scenes.
- Removed all Lester scenes.
- Removed opening sequence and credit montage.
- Trimmed some scenes for better pacing.

Fantastic job! Almost perfect. Only two minor things (not really even worth mentioning).

best version I can imagine of this movie. Highly entertaining. Gekko, you have a good view and know exactly what has to be addressed.

First of all, Thanks for the great edit!
Technically it was great, all the cuts were unnoticeable and the Audio and Video quality were good. 5/5

After watching the movie I was left with a feeling that something was missing from this edit.
I didn’t miss Sharon Stone and Lester, so cutting their parts to the bare minimum, wasn’t the problem.
It took me a while to figure out what was wrong and I think that the problem with this edit is that you cut so much out of the movie, that the two main characters are now too shallow: you don’t get to really know them any more.
Their characteristics don’t really develop during the film.
Another thing is that this is a drama movie, and drama movies are based on motional content.
I think that you left so much of the emotional content out that I couldn’t connect to the characters any more – I didn’t really give a damn about what will happen to them.

Thank you for the effort, filmfreak.
