I liked the Theatrical Cut, but something felt off about it. I was not the only one, as it seems, and some very creative people suggested this well deserved and logical flip in perspective (e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gksxu-yeWcU). I was curious to see how the movie actually feels now, and the answer is simple - Macmilln's Aurora Edit is a significant improvement over the TC. Highly recommended!
The edit is visually stunning, and I simply loved it. The characters felt more relatable, the reveal a lot more satisfying, and the narrative flows more sensibly. Well done! Definitely my go-to version of this film.
When I first watched the original movie i left the theater wondering if the movie would be better if it was from Aurora’s perspective. Then I forgot about the movie and then this shows up. And this is clearly better! It is seamless and thrilling!
Excellent quality and editing. I can’t compare in detail with the original because I did not remember everything. But it felt right, if I can say that.
Will be showing this to someone that hasn’t seen the original and discuss the narrative. And perhaps I will update my review.
As someone who didn't mind the theatrical cut, I decided to watch your edit after reading a number of positive reviews and I have to say I'm happy I did as this is a much better movie overall. This wasn't a bad movie in general but the whole Chris Pratt feeling sorry for himself took away from other elements of the movie, you have managed to transform this movie into something great by moving elements of the story around and doing a few tweaks here and there which makes this the superior version to watch.
As someone who steered clear of the theatrical cut, I decided to watch your take on the material after reading a number of positive reviews. I'm glad I did. This was a fascinating look at love, the human struggle against loneliness, and the will to protect one's fellow passenger.
Jennifer Lawrence is a generational talent. One of the reasons that I avoided the theatrical version was it looking to focus so heavily on Chris Pratt and him moping around. This edit fixes any potential narrative flab and -- as another reviewer mentions -- heightens the mystery elements in the process.
Across the board, this is a beautiful looking and sounding film. A few spots have too sentimental music for my taste but that cannot be helped I suspect.
I've seen a number of fan edits on here that rank as stellar experiences and this ranks among them. This isn't an epic film in need of a longer cut. At 82 minutes, it offers a subtle look at two people learning to forgive and move forward. A great lesson compared to so many sci-fi films that cast humanity in such a negative light.
I'll make sure to keep an eye on your future edits!
Now this is what FanEdits are meant to do! Here we have an OK sci-fi film with some great performances transformed into something great by moving elements of the story around and doing some light tweaks here and there. This is the superior version of the film. Thanks!
