Reviews written by tm2yc

The Internet Fanedit Database (IFDB) is a database of fanedits vetted by the Fanedit.org Academy. IFDB is intended to provide information about what edits have been made, and allow fans of fanediting a means to review edits that they have seen. Neither IFDB nor its parent site, Fanedit.org, host links or files for fanedits.

IFDB_logo_02 Older edits which pre-date Academy approval may not meet the same quality expectations as newer fanedits, but are grandfathered in as they are part of the fanediting history, and in addition to their own entertainment value, help provide context for the evolution of fanediting as an art and educational exercise.


Below are the types of fanedits we index on IFDb. Click on a category for a description of the edit type:

FanFix

With a FanFix, the editor is typically attempting clean-up or otherwise modify the original so as to make it a more enjoyable viewing experience. Quite often this entails adding and/or removing portions of the movie, reordering scenes and in general, addressing aspects of story and/or character that detract from the movie. In general terms, a FanFix tends to be an effort to polish the movie, often removing contrivances added by studios or filmmakers which interfere with the story. The goal here is not to invent a new movie or narrative, but to clean-up the existing one and hopefully make the movie more enjoyable. Examples of FanFixes are havok1977's Codename: Wolverine, gekko's Mission Impossible 2: Disavowed and The Phantom Editor's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Edit.

FanMix

Where a FanFix attempts to clean-up a story, a FanMix fanedit instead modifies the story so drastically as to make it a new and unique movie experience. In these "new takes" entire sub-plots and characters can be removed, character motivations changed and new endings created. Famous instances of such new takes include Remixed by Jorge’s The Dark Knight, Jack Marshall’s Star Trek Phase II, and CBB’s Titanic – The Jack Edit.

Extended Edition

Extended Editions (EE) attempt to create the fullest version of a movie as possible using deleted scenes from commercial DVD’s. Similar to the concept of a Director’s cut, EEs look to present all possible material available as an integrated movie-going experience. If a studio releases an official version that incorporates the same material in similar fashion, it is our site policy to remove the fanedit from the site as it can be legally purchased from a retailer. Extended Editions can be include deleted scenes only available in TV versions, such is the case with EEs like Ridgeshark's Army of Darkness: Primitive Screwhead Edition or Tranzor's The Warriors: TV Composite.

Documentary/Review

This particular form of fanedit creates a movie that does exactly as the name implies, documents a particular topic (quite typically a movie) or provides a review of a movie. Both incorporate movie footage and voice-over work that speaks to the events happening on-screen. The intent of these particular edits is not to create a fictional story, but rather inform, illuminate, or otherwise make comment on or about a particular movie, or set of movies.

Shorts

This category takes a movie (or TV show) and turns it into a significantly shorter piece of work, either as a stand-alone short movie, or broken/restructured into a series of edits in either the fashion of episodic television, or old-fashioned movie serials. These edits may modify visual style, or restructure the flow of events, but it is a broad category which allows for a wide-range of freedom and reinterpretation.

Special Projects

Some fan-based projects do not seek to create new, untold or heavily modified versions of a film or show. Special Projects are fanedits in which faneditors infuse personal creative choices to modify the viewing experience, yet are not significantly different from the original. The main purpose of a Special Project is to make minor changes to a movie that don't affect the story or plot too much but change the atmosphere of the movie or create a unique viewing experience.

Preservation

These aren't fanedits per se, but a collection of works not available commercially. These may include behind-the-scenes specials, interviews, outtakes, music videos, guest spots, and more for a particular film. Preservation projects are a means of collecting and preserving as much promotional material as possible for a film that may otherwise be lost.
