- Cook is the big bad and the climax ends with that confrontation (re-edited to imply a different result)
Excellent condensation of the original story. I really enjoyed this. It probably seems simple to take a great and stylish story and whittle it down to its essence, but I imagine it takes quite a bit of skill to find the relevant parts and bring them together in a moving way, which is a testament to thecuddlyninja’s. . . well, ninja-like editing skills. The Julee Cruise song fits so well I didn’t even notice it was an addition until I rewatched parts of the original film, and now that I’ve had a chance to compare the two, I prefer the ninja's replacement track.
The only nitpick I can offer is that the fanedit.org intro audio could have been suppressed during the mention of the scorpion and the frog.
I watched the SD version, which upscaled so nicely on my terebi that I couldn’t tell it was SD.
Nice work, ninja!
Good short edit.
The love story in Drive is very emotional and it's a good idea to use it for this consecution.
Technicaly it is very good but too bad I add to remove two points in "visual editing" because of the scene with the picture on the mirror.
Gosling in drinking and the next shot he is not (mirror) then back to him with the cup.
I don't remember if it was in the orginal movie or not but there you go.
Again, I liked this edit very much.
Very nicely done short. Editing was seamless and I loved the added music. The only downside for me was that it was a bit too simple and kind of just a condensation of "Drive".
A short that's about the things one might give up for those they love. Even if that means risking giving up being with the people they love. Very good from a technical standpoint, though the resolution feels ever so slightly rough to me. Hits all the right emotional notes throughout. Good music. Solid execution all around.
Getaway is essentially the Cliff's Notes version of Drive, focusing on the relationship between the Driver and Irene. For the most part, it's a successful short, with some really well done editing. Newly added music draped over fanedited sequences pull a lot of emotion. However, like the source film, this re-edit feels just a tad forced at times. Oscar Isaac's character, Standard, feels more like an afterthought rather than a vehicle for moving the plot forward. 'Getaway' probably could have benefited from just a few more minutes where it might have introduced the relationship between the three adult characters a little better. Alas, the consecution series always presents a challenge with the short runtime constraints, and I should emphasize that thecuddlyninja has done a great job with this edit. I watched via Vimeo and the a/v quality was excellent. Getaway is a great contribution to the consecution collection.
