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.
This is a very minimal fanedit, but the edits made still manage to improve the film, thus resulting in a more satisfying experience. I already love the Spider-Man: Homecoming that we got, but I do appreciate what Bobson goes for here and he pulls it all off with flying colors. Really loved this edit.
Having loved what Bobson did with Homecoming, I couldn't wait to see their take o Spider-Man 3. Long story short, it's pretty darn great. While listed as an extended cut, there is a rejiggering of the narrative after MJ breaks up with Peter that actually feels natural, building up Peter's dependency on the black suit moreso than the original. And cutting to the James Brown montage after Peter threw a bomb in Harry's face? Sam Raimi would be proud.
There are some things I feel would better improve the narrative though. You could cut the scene where Harry gets his memory back, imply that he was faking it the while time and waiting for the time to strike. I'd also cut Harry attacking MJ and let her break up with Peter on her own terms, give her some agency and real inner turmoil. Some scenes could also be grouped together to help the pacing, like the crane and Brock at the Bugle could be placed before seeing MJ on Broadway, establishing characters sooner rather than later.
But, this is an extension of the pre-existing movie. Aside from a few shots that looked like they were in SD, this is great. If you have a soft spot for Spider-Man 3, I highly recommend this take.
Do you recommend this edit?
Thanks for your kind words, but I think this may have been directed towards my Spider-Man 3.1 review and not my Homecoming one
Very minimal but very good edit of Homecoming. It was already a great film, but Bobson Dugnutt's edits improve it. The rubble scene rescore is superb. My only complaints being the removal of a couple jokes I liked but that's extremely nit picky.
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!
