Brief Synopsis:
'Midnight Meat Train' was a solid horror film starring Bradley Cooper and Vinnie Jones that had a novel premise and some terrifying moments along with an entertaining story that avoided the many cliches and pitfalls of many run-of-the-mill horror films today. It was original, fresh and very bloody. However, some fans were not satisfied with the overly occult ending and wonder what it would have been like if Meat Train was a straight-up slasher. With this edit, the film is recut into a solid slasher/splatter/psychological thriller with an alternate ending.

Brief Synopsis:
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

Pacific Rim is one of the best and most memorable films from Guillermo Del Toro (Cronos, Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy), and is easily the best 'monsters vs. giant robots' movie to date. However, as imaginative as Del Toro's film is, it suffers from a flawed and distracting subplot involving a pair of over-the-top scientists. This cut removes the superfluos material to keep the movie focused on the Jaegers, their pilots and their Kaiju nemesis.

Brief Synopsis:
A leaner, meaner and more realistic cut which retains the nihilistic mood and tone of the theatrical cut and minimizes the poor characterization and excess 'emotional' moments resulting in a far darker and better Monster movie... The stars of this version are not the humans, but the monsters.

Brief Synopsis:
No barrel gymnastics. No molten gold.

The Desolation of Smaug is Peter Jackson's adaptation of the middle third of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. Despite some incredible visuals and fine performances, it was too long and encumbered by many scenes that not only slowed the film, but also were completely invented for the film and deviated from the novel significantly. "Fire of the Dragon" is an earlier edit of this film, where I cut out all the extra made-up-for-the movie padding that stretched a perfectly good 2 hour movie into almost three. 'Dragon' was a version that didn't drag and had good pacing, and is what I feel the Theatrical cut should have been--I emphasize that because a lot of the material I liked from the actual movie and I felt made it entertaining (namely, the barrel fight and the dragon showdown in the end) are left intact in Dragon-- I just felt those made the movie more fun and gave it the feel of adventure it needed.

However, I strongly agree with a lot of the criticism of both the original film and my first cut, in that these things (1) were a little over-the-top at times, and (2) still never happened in the book. So I decided to go ahead and make further changes to produce a "purist cut" of the movie. Instead of just being a watered down version of "Dragon", I trimmed more, reordered certain scenes, and made a new opening for it, as well as a new title.

This is as close as Desolation comes to being a 'book' cut of Tolkien's the Hobbit.

Brief Synopsis:
The Shining has always been a mysterious film, with multiple conspiracy theories circulating about hidden messages within. One bizarre practice among the most zealous fans of Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece is to attempt to 'uncover' the deepest subconscious meaning of an already subversive film by playing it both forward and backward simultaneously, with the belief that Kubrick had designed the film itself in perfect symmetry, as he did with many of the shots.

The result is best described as unsettling, hallucinatory and disturbing. While by no means was this film officially meant to be watched this way, the visual and thematic parallels of the beginning and end of the film are eerily resonant. The first scene for example has Jack telling his employers that "there's no way he's going to go insane" while we watch the shadowy reverse footage of him stalking his son through a maze, showing how structurally deep and complex the film really is. I did not invent this method of watching The Shining, but have put my own spin on it to make it a more satisfying experience.

Brief Synopsis:
Ben-Hur is the greatest of the 'classic' Hollywood epics, and is widely regarded as one of the best of all time. The story is of a Jewish prince (Charlton Heston in an Oscar winning role) who is wrongfully accused of attempting to assassinate the new Roman governor by a Roman provincial who was his one-time trusted friend, causing him to be exiled as a slave and his mother and sister to be locked away, but not before he swears vengeance.

The original clocked in at almost 4 hours, as it attempted to tell the tale of the rise of Christianity along with Ben-Hur's struggles. This edit removes almost all instances of the tale of Christianity, to focus on Ben-Hur, his quest for vengeance, redemption and salvation, all in the far more manageable time of 2 hours and 24 minutes.

Brief Synopsis:
Thunderball really is Connery's last great performance as 007 before he completely checked out of the role. It's the last one where he really owns the film and proves why he is still regarded as the best actor to ever play 007. It's also full of exotic location shots, great music and one of the most famous villain plots in the series, involving stolen nuclear warheads but the film itself has always been criticized, mainly due to a plodding pace, the bulk of which is due to some overlong underwater sequences.

Thunderball failed to become the "best bond ever" as its theatrical tagline promises because it almost feels rushed, as if the editing was unfinished in certain instances. Well, now the editing is finished. Almost no major scenes or sequences have been removed but almost every scene has been trimmed for pacing, resulting in a faster film with an enhanced narrative.

Brief Synopsis:
This is a TV-to-Movie Edit of Seasons 1 And 2 of AMC's The Walking Dead (a total runtime of 875 minutes) into a 177-minute zombie epic. The is the story of Officer Rick Grimes who wakes up after a coma during the zombie apocalypse and goes on a quest to find his family. The numerous horrors he and a small group of survivors endure while seeking refuge from the legions of the undead are chronicled here. The goal of this edit was not to cram every detail of the series into a limited time-frame, but to create a film version of the Walking Dead story which would appeal to both fans of the show and newcomers alike.

Brief Synopsis:
This edit presents the entire Moriarty arc of BBC's Sherlock in one film-- not dispersed over four episodes as in the original. London's most famous "amateur" detective gets his regular routine of solving kidnappings and thefts rattled when faced with a new game of terror: he is given a limited amount of time to solve five challenges by an unknown madman or innocent people will be blown up. As he races against the clock, Sherlock and Watson realize that they are moving deeper into an international network of crime and terrorism centered around one elusive individual: Moriarty. Eventually the game threatens to cost Sherlock everything: his career, his friends, and life... you'll be caught up in the action as soon as it kicks in and its a non stop ride from there.

Brief Synopsis:
"Tears in the Rain" a vastly different version of the film which serves as an Alternate look at Ridley Scott's masterpiece, not an extension of the original. It focuses more on the Replicants and their quest to meet their maker. Rick Deckard is presented as a competent determined hunter and killer (unlike the relatively insecure counterpart in the original), in many ways an antagonist-- this is a world where Replicants are outlawed and killed on identification. They attack only when cornered, but mean no harm to humans. Not unless they can help it... This film is presented in high contrast black and white to accentuate the noir feel of the original. Trimmed down and fast paced, I hope this edit will intrigue, excite and entice fans of the original and new viewers alike.

Brief Synopsis:
This is the lean version which retains all the greatness of the movie and drops all the fluff, making it a better paced and more entertaining movie overall. Fire of the Dragon dispenses with many superfluous elements of the film like the elf-dwarf love triangle, the dwarves being left behind in Laketown, the orc assault on Laketown, as well as any other deviations from the main narrative.
