Ditko and Romita fans rejoice: here is your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man! Like other high-school kids, Peter has insecurities, a worried aunt, awkward social dynamics, an infectious youthful exuberance, and a tough time to balance everything in his life. Unlike any other kid, that life includes amazing superpowers.
This edit thankfully removes Tony Stark's reboot of Uncle Ben's famous "With great power comes great responsibility". Without the voice-over, the visual is all the stronger. Peter comes into his own as Spider-Man under his own power.
The Ramones' song is so perfect as a rousing finale, that you'll be hard-pressed to remember what music was there in the original.
Overall editing is outstanding. Technically invisible and strengthening the narrative. Removing "8 years" sadly also cuts the Vulture landing in his lair, and I would have liked to keep one "hot" Aunt May joke. Maybe the latter depends on the age of the viewer? Is aunt May your parents' age or your own age?
To sum up, this edit convincingly replaces the original. Excelsior!
There is something incredibly satisfying when you watch the fanedit of a film that you so desperately wanted to love but couldn't and then the fanedit allows for this to happen instead.The edits,despite being minimal add a lot of needed depth to the film and the Raimi trilogy scores used at the end simply elevate the film to another level.Easily my definitive version of homecoming and would highly recommend people to give this watch now just in preparation for FFH.
A great edit! I like all of the trims made, all seamless, as well as making the narrative stronger. I especially liked the rescore and also the reduction of Karen. Overall, picture quality is compressed, but not very bad. Ending song is perfect! Well done, Bobson!
Bobson Dugnutt has done an amazing job with this project. This edit adds weight to the villainous elements which in turn raises the stakes overall. The audio changes are seamless and change the tone for the better. Concise and powerful editing choices. Very well done!
