matrixgrindhouse takes a comical gem and modifies it to the best of his ability to make it a pulpish noir 'tec caper. The editing may appear choppy, but given the material that had to be trimmed there is little to fault him for, and at least the grindish mixture of transistions and jumps try to excuse all the hard trims as being a part of the overall experiance. I also admire the originality of the ending and the downbeat somber tone of the final moments. Overall a nifty concept and it works better than you may think.

This is a tough one. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't easy to watch. I don't really blame the editor for this. He took up a thankless task, trying to make Naked Gun unfunny. The problem of course is that so much gets cut out that there is an abundance of jarring edits. Grindhousing it kind of disguised this, but it still didn't feel right.

The edit is fun though. There are some laughs to be had from how much certain scenes need to cut down to get rid of jokes. As well I enjoyed the noir treatment. Good work on a tough job.

I loved the concept and the execution was fairly well done. I think there was far too much reliance on the grindhouse effects and the harsh audio cuts were all over the map. If this were played straight up, it would have been great.
