On the plus side, I've been using Photoshop Elements for image editing for years, and PRE's native support for PSD files makes any image work easier - so any changes required to images used in the project can be made in Photoshop and saved to the PSD, with PRE automatically detecting the changes and updating the project. This was very useful when creating the radical alternate ending and the DVD title menu.
That was a really enjoyable edit. I already liked the original one, but this takes it to another level, more videogame so than the original.
It was really cool, great editing, sound and you don't feel the hours passing, it is just a good way to see it.
Foreword: I haven't seen the original in sometime, which I prefer for watching edits and I also didn't review the changes (log) ahead of watching, which I also prefer. I looked at the edit list back when I downloaded the edit, but I like to not know what I'm walking into; I don't watch an edit for a few months or more after downloading it.
What I liked: I enjoyed some of the new music as well. It was engaging and had a stream lined story. The video game graphics and cut scenes were awesome, made the whole thing feel exciting.
What I didn't: The intro was very good at letting you know what was happening but between the fight scenes I didn't always understand the jump. If I was going to be nit-picky, I'd also mention that it is pointed out as 8-bit graphics but the graphics are 16-bit (at least I thought so judging them by the NES and SNES)...really a very small thing.
Overall: I really enjoyed this and it felt more ambitious than most edits, and for that reason if felt fresh and a very different experience than the original. I would recommend people check this out. I don't think this replaces the original but it does sit well alongside the original.
Extra: Keep up the good work. I think if you had the time and will you could make this even more compelling. Some of the scenes cut in were a lot lower quality, which is not your fault and made them standout. The new footage might sit along with the main footage better, if the main footage was slightly lower quality too? Just a thought.
I went into this having enjoyed the original but I hadn't watched it since I bought it five years ago. So I was a bit rusty on it though I remember really enjoying it but there being too much crammed into it.
What a clever edit this is. It paces this at a breakneck speed, with it feeling really like an old school game. Even more so than the original. I cannot recommend this enough; it was a really cool way to reimagine a cool movie.

I really enjoyed this edit. The original movie fell down in many ways as it tried to cram as much of the six books into a feature-length film. That One Guy manages to do something different here, using footage from the video game to make an edit of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, the narrative is of the fights and manages to do this pretty well.
The video game opening manages to avoid a lot of the early story and brings us up to speed wth the story at the start of the first battle. It does this comfortably and I really didn't feel like anything was missing.
There were a couple of moments where I wondered if there'd been a hard-edit or if it was like this originally. If I hadn't been watching in knowledge this was a fanedit, I certainly wouldn't have noticed. The audio editing was also subtle so even if there might have been issues, they were soft and mostly unnoticable.
The pacing of the edit was excellent, there was enough of the peripheral story to give it a real plot and I also enjoyed all of the bonuses included, including the alternate endings.
A thoroughly enjoyable edit.
So I was not a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim movie. However I am a big fan of old school video games (I had an original nintendo - and it remained in good condition for a long time - no need to blow in to the cartridges or the cartridge slot...) but I digress.
Scott Pilgrim Punch Out Edition. So I was aware of this edit for a long time but just didn't have much interest in it. However, I didn't really know anything about the edit, I hadn't read the cutlist or intention. I really enjoyed That One Guy's Equation of Crime. I thought it was pretty inventive. So I decided to take a chance on this edit.
Nice DVD menus. I always like when an editor takes the time to create some decent looking DVD menus.
The narrative was good and I felt like I was watching a video game. The pacing was great, and I gotta say I don't mind a short running time!
Some of the transitions and fades were a bit abrupt. And I noticed a few rough spots in the audio (but I kinda purposefully listen for those when I watch edits - probably a bit unfair, but fanedit.org has changed me lol).
The audio and video quality were good.
Another creative and inventive edit! Nicely done That One Guy!
