This extended blend of the pilot and the spin-off movie showcases the spirit of the series. This is a pretty grim, dark future with a devastated earth short of food...

This is a great edit, and I really really enjoyed it. However, some choices create -- in my view -- some problems for character development, and for the larger Prequel...

This is a great edit of a not-great trilogy of films, into one watchable movie. LOTR -- the extended editions especially! -- did an amazing, still unmatched, job of treating...

I always liked the "Revenge of the Sith" and Hayden Christensen's Anakin always worked for me (in the "attack of the Clones," too). Sure, there were some quibbles with ROTS....

I really enjoyed this. Moved at a cracking pace, and held together well. Its not exactly grimdark; its a blast, really showcasing the energy, magic and sheer lunacy of the...

I like the original: nicely done, but a bit bland. There was no real sense of the grime and grit of the Victorian era. Rather, there were empty, immaculately streets,...

Amazing. That's all there is to it. The editor has retrieved a pretty decent film from the shell of a truly bad film: something watchable and enjoyable, rather than something...

I liked the original film, even if it was somewhat Americanised, Constantine, in the comics being a tough, street-wise working class Brit -- part of what makes him stand out...

This gave me a new appreciation for the film. The use of extra (in some cases, alternative) scenes really helped the movie, as did the cuts and moving things around....
