Brief Synopsis:
Diana kept fighting after the events of her first movie in smaller, more hidden humanitarian ways, even though she gave up hope in mankind as a whole. We do not find her in the 80s anti-social and still brooding about Steve this whole time. Instead she is a confident hidden hero, who happens upon a chance that brings him back, and she realizes AGAIN how much she lost. This movie becomes the reason she still thinks about him in the present day JL movies. She was over him in that she knew he was gone the first time, only to have him come back for a while and let him go again. She essentially gets PTSD from this experience, instead of just being lovesick for the full 100 years. (Also, Steve is not inhabiting anyone else’s body in this edit.)

WW84 also should have dialed up the 80's soundtrack. Bill and Teds was shot in '87 and released in '89, so I already knew I couldn't lock myself into ‘84 if I wanted to mix the soundtracks. Bill and ted's gave me tons of source material to work with, but I needed more, so since Bill and Ted wanted to work with Van Halen, Van Halen leads the additional songs needed. There is also Judas Priest, Pat Benatar, The Expressions, Killing Joke, Vangelis, Oingo Boingo, Def Leppard, Scorpions, Harold Faltermayer and Kenny Loggins.

Brief Synopsis:
Main Changes:
No V.O. - "Show, don't tell" philosophy (try to give more discovery of mysteries to the viewer) means no voiceover at all - not even the memory voiceover from Gaff as Deckard looks at the origami unicorn. The goal is to tell the story with the emotions of the characters instead of spoon-feeding info.

No Unicorn Dream - For me, the "Deckard is a replicant" question is more interesting as an open-ended question than the execution we got, so no unicorn dreams here. The audience today is much more aware of the tech and concepts of the movie than the average 80s viewer, so the movie keeps the original spirit but leaves more dots to connect for the modern viewer.

More Pollution - I love all the new higher Res releases of Blade Runner, but to me the better resolution removed a lot of the gitty pollution-like vibe to the world of Blade Runner. Here, the outside scenes are adjusted to feel dirtier, which also allowed me to insert upscaled footage of deleted scenes that hopefully stand out less.

No Dates - all references to the year dates are removed.

No "Trapped Rachael" Scene - I know I am going to get hate for this but there is one particualr part of this film which has not aged well. People like to say this movie is about replicants because of Roy Batty and crew, but simutaneously write off how utter fucked up Rachael's experience must be too, arguing that the scene is needed to show an aspect Deckards growth in regards how he treats replicants, how he fundamentally sees them.

Brief Synopsis:
"Paradise" is easily one of my favorite franchise-saving fanedit of all time. It highlights what is great about the prequels, and ditches everything else. I watched it endlessly.

Over time, I wondered - what would a chronological edit look like? And after having gotten the blessing of jobwillins himself, I began to experiment. The initial simple chronological re-edit lost all the magic and tension that made Paradise great.

But I kept playing with different ways to try to keep the "David-centric" story, and settled on this two-episode format. This is an admittedly inferior re-imagining of Paradise, but still a fun and different way to focus on the deeper questions raised in these films, each about 70 minutes.

Brief Synopsis:
As an adult I have never felt a ton of love for due to the outrageous color scheme, and the makeup fx were always downright nuts to me as well. Its amazing that this came out the year after the first Burton Batman movie - its a complete ripoff, blasphemous in retrospect really. I can't believe I didn't notice back then it was THIS similar to the Batman. Hindsight is 20/20.

But I was amazed at how I could actually appreciate everything in this movie without all the color - even the makeup isn't quite as bad - it seems like THE PERFECT movie that a Young Bruce Wayne would have watched. There are so many similarities to Batman, besides of course the Elfman soundtrack: Big Boy seems like a hybrid of the Joker and the Penguin, Dick Tracy seems like Batman if he were a cop, the "Kid" is basically Robin. Elliot Ness similarities, sure, but this is a superhero before there were superheroes. Its so weird how much this copies and tries to be a prequel. I don't think I noticed before with all the color and ridiculous makeup. But it also hit some pretty iconic "noir" beats too.

Main Changes:

• B&W

• More noir vibes, more adult focus. Tracy edited to have a bit more confidence, less doubt, except when it comes to women.

• Original songs trimmed when the narrative allows, Miles Davis added where possible.

• Removed excess shots of bad makeup.

• Lots of dumb lines removed or edited for pacing.

• Big Boy lines are trimmed to seem darker and more menacing, less of a parody.
(That worked well for a while. Then, he had a few jokes that landed that I couldn't remove. So Big Boy starts off more menacing, but I let Pacino off the leash after a while.)

Brief Synopsis:
My goal was to streamline the storylines of the main characters through all three movies, as if the end was planned from the beginning. Kylo and Rey were of course most important.

• Kylo’s arc is pretty well fleshed out already, the most cohesive character arc of the ST, imo. As much as possible stays for Kylo.

• Rey needs to stay a nobody. And she slowly discovers her powers. She does not hit a stormtrooper with her first shot, and she less powered along the way as much as possible. She is just a special “nobody.”

• Poe’s character arc is nowhere near as complex as Kylo, but pretty much laid out for us.

• Finn is not force sensitive. This means he does not ever make and successful attacks with the lightsaber as well. Only once does he ask Rey about a boyfriend, from then on he keeps friendship motivations. Admittedly, Finn kinda disappears in the final fight, but there are just too many absurd parts to leave him in (no horses on spaceships in this cut!)

• Characters like Hux and Rose have been severely sidelined as they just do not have satisfying character arcs. Both simply fade out of importance in the final movie, but I hope I have not made it too obvious. Hux is no spy, simply muscled out by other power hungry commanders. I loved Rose in TLJ, but without adequate character development in TROS, it was best to minimize her to simply a person helping Finn on HIS character arc. Consequently, the scenes at Canto Bight are greatly reduced, and Rose and Finn simply do not pilot speeders at the battle of Crait.

Then I also audited the whole edit, based on a great youtube video essay about “showing, not telling.”

Brief Synopsis:
Major Changes:

• All scenes that show a digitized young "real" Kevin Flynn are removed. Clu is the only one to wear the Young Kevin face.

• Scenes in the real world are extremely trimmed – we are in the world of TRON by the 11th minute of the movie. No sequel bait, no franchise seeds.

• Terrible dialogue is trimmed wherever possible to remove the cringe factor. (Lots of “whats his problem” and “now this I can do” type stuff.)

• Quorra is edited to be less the "born sexy yesterday" trope (a woman defined both by her immense sex appeal and her intense childlike naivety, a figure created almost entirely to be leered over or as a prize to be won by the male protagonist.)

• The “infinitely wise and infinitely naïve” aspects of the ISOs, and that they will “CHANGE THE WORLD,” is downplayed. Kevin simply feels responsible for her life, teaching her and protecting her, like the father he SHOULD have been to Sam.

• Tron’s final change of sides is adjusted slightly. Some of his lines were removed (more mysterious) and his color change happened during the mental change. This allows him to simply “turn off” in the water instead of looking like there's a chance he is coming back when his color changes in the water. That was just confusing.

• "Show, don’t tell" principles in effect as much as possible.

Brief Synopsis:
Goals:
On first watch I loved this movie, so I didn’t change much... just to fix that ending, and to make the end more in line with her character in BvS - that these heroes are awesome but mankind is questionable.

Main Changes:
• Distance this version of Wonder Woman’s origin story from writer Azzarello's New 52 retcon where Wonder Woman is the child of Zeus and Hephaestus, restoring Wonder Woman's made-from-clay origin in the end.

• Make Diana seem less naïve about some basic things like marriage and hand-holding.

• Diminish the role of Dr. Poison to simply a lackey of the General, so her Act 3 disappearance less important (Dr. Poison falls into the easy trope that suggests disability — and in this case, specifically facial disfigurement — means that a character is evil. We never find out Dr. Poison’s backstory and whether her facial scarring caused her to become a villain or happened after she already was one, but the message is the same- we should be afraid of people whose faces and bodies are different from our own.)

• Remove much of the exposition and the Dr. Poison confrontation from the final battle.

• Avoid the strange paradoxical elements from the final Act (i.e. soldiers hugging after the defeat of Ares.)

• Make the end of WW less optimistic, more in line with MoS and BvS that these heroes are awesome but mankind is questionable.

Brief Synopsis:
(All three movies generally focus on the inherent nature of mankind.)

Main changes:
• Remove the Africa incident and change public reaction to events of MoS.
• Better establish the classic Kryptonian boy scout in the first Act.
• Remove Batman killing people (he still “lets” bad guys die, but doesn’t kill outright)
• Refine Lex into a better villain – less weird, more obviously paranoid, less daddy issues, more calculated (i.e. making doomsday as a backup plan more understandable.)
• Clarify the conflict the world has with Superman – its all about fear.
• Batman doesn’t actually see the future, does not see the Flash
• Change Batman’s moral return to be prodded by fear and the similarities to his parent’s killing - not the realization that their mothers have the same name.
No foreshadowing of Superman’s resurrection.

Brief Synopsis:
(All three movies generally focus on the inherent nature of mankind.)

This Man of Steel edit tries to keep the spirit of the original movie, but also find the classic hero inside - to make Clark more like “the noble Superman I grew up with” (yes I am aware how extremely subjective that is).

Its about a confident hero, with boy scout morals almost to a fault. He is confident in his actions but remains hidden from the world due to his personal choice. With the arrival of Zod, Clark Kent must finally reveal himself. This is not an origin story, although his origin is retold. This is about the confident kryptonian boy scout we all recognize, and we watch as Zod forces Clark beyond his limits to save his adopted world.

Main Changes:
• Krypton prologue now begins at Kal’s launch
• Credit sequence from the great Man of Steel: A Symbol of Hope from TM2YC
• Pa Kent doesn’t die for his idea, nor does he tell young Clark that he might have to let people die.
• Bus incident moved to replace tornado incident, focus on “people afraid of what they don’t understand,” which is then re-emphasized by Perry and then again by Martha
• Suit reveal moved to after discussion with priest to emphasis Clark’s overall decision to officially reveal himself to the world.
• Innocent bystanders that might get hurt are removed as much as possible in Smallville battle as well as in Metropolis battle.
• Clark contemplates the aftermath of his battle with Zod on a mountaintop with the memory of Pa Kent.

Brief Synopsis:
My first fan-edit deserved a new look since the original movie was finally released at a considerably higher quality on Blu-ray in April of 2020

As an avid golfer, there are some great golf moments in this movie. There is unfortunately an over-the-top “80s romance” too, which hasn’t aged that well. My editing goal is to focus on the golf.

In this new version, Molly is edited to be “less damsel-like” and seems smarter, more confident. And the golf gets the highlight it deserves with this new upgrade to the film quality.

When I was preparing the cover art, I found an awesome set photos with a monotone color grading that has a cool blue tint. I loved the way the photo felt classic and special. The set photos felt almost “Rat Pack” cool. I love the original movie and especially the new HD release, but the overall color saturation and obviously dated technology made it feel dated as well IMO. So I dove back in and tested an idea.

Personally, I love the new “cool blue noir” look. The footage feels more timeless, and the old technology isn’t as distracting. The fashion looks less distracting too, allowing to focus on the golf.

Both the "Timeless" B&W version and the original color version are available.

Brief Synopsis:
Chronological cut, without the Ace Chemicals plotline. Harley, now more of a known entity, is discovering the protections afforded under Joker are slipping away. We meet Harley as a spoiled drunk, still milking the privileges of being Joker’s girlfriend, so her personal growth seems bigger from basic piece of shit to possible new anti-hero. The rest of the major characters are introduced sooner, and Sionis’s displays of sadism ramps up more progressively until he dons the mask.

Brief Synopsis:
A tighter, more focused story of savvy criminal defense lawyer, known for doing the right thing for the wrong people, who decides to use his connections for some quick cash. But the House always wins in the end.

There are some great scenes and monologues in this movie that I wanted to highlight, and some terrible acting and monologues I wanted to remove. For MANY reasons, I ended up removing the whole Malkina subplot and kept her to a simple strong woman that was to intimidating for Reiner. Then, there simply wasn't enough character development (with good writing) for any of the women IMO, so I ended up focusing on the POV of the Counselor mainly, removing most all the scenes without the Counselor or Reiner involved. With a tandem story of the drug shipment's journey from Juarez to Chicago.
