For the alley fight, I used "Edward Blake - The Comedian" by Tyler Bates from "Watchmen: Original Motion Picture Score".
For the closing credits, I used an Amazon-purchased MP3 of "Beautiful World" by Devo.
For the trailer, I used "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Lorde from the "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack".
Various video excerpts come from the "Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter" North American DVD.
For the DVD Menu, I used "Silk Spectre" by Tyler Bates from "Watchmen: Original Motion Picture Score".
- cut most non-Laurie material
- repeated shot of Laurie looking out the window to set up flashback scene
- added new music to alley fight (foreshadowing!)
- mixed audio where needed
- created new closing credits; added song
I enjoyed this edit. I'm a big Watchmen fan but not the biggest Silk Spectre fan. Most of the story unfolds around her and Doc Manhattan. This works as a fast-paced edit of the story. There are two very hard audio cuts early on, when we first go to the government facility and particularly after the fight scene with the thugs in the alley. Watching this along with the End is Nigh cut focused on Rorschach was a very cool companion set.

This really worked as a great story line and I enjoyed it a lot with the focus on Silk Specttre. The film flowed nicely and there was only 2 points really where I noticed it was a fan edit. These were:
a) the alley fight scene versus the punks. The soundtrack has quite a harsh ending into the dialogue, maybe it could be faded out a little more into the dialogue.
b) when Silk Specttre moves into the other SuperHero's apartment. The cut to scene was abit harsh (I don't know how you could improve on that though)
All in all I loved it. 48 out of 50. Excellent score :)
