Brief Synopsis:
Peter Parker is beset with troubles in his failing personal life as he battles a brilliant scientist named Doctor Otto Octavius.

An edit of the already amazing Spider-Man 2.1 to fix some of the less than great alternate scenes added to the extended cut of the film.
Intention:
2.1 was stellar as it was with the added moments such as JJJ in the Spidey suit and the more brutal train fight, but there were 2 moments I felt that were worse than the theatrical cut, so I thought I'd simply fix them by cutting them back into the film.
Other Sources:
Spider-Man 2.1 (2007) for the majority of the film with the theatrical Spider-Man 2 (2004) being used for 2 scenes.

This was well done. The added material was seamless and the AV quality was just fine!

A highly enjoyable extended cut of Spider-man 2, which shows that choosing which scenes to extend and when to keep the theatrical version is a real art.
Bobson's cut definitely improves both the theatrical cut and 2.1, and as always does it in a technically stunning way - seamless cuts, both audio and video are perfect.
There were no noticeable changes to the narrative, but I was not expecting any. I liked the theatrical cut, and the only thing that bother me now is that most women are depicted as helpless throughout most of the film. Maybe a slight trimming in version 2.3? :)

A minimal review for a minimal edit: Bobson improves the film. This edit is better than either 2.0 or 2.1.

But seriously, the official Spider-Man 2.1 improved on the theatrical 2.0 version. Except in the elevator scene, which became oddly prominent with its extended runtime. The changed dialog would fit a Director's Commentary (how can we capitalize on Spidey's fame), but was out of place inside the story. This is fixed seamlessly.
Bobson also improves on / corrects a minor but fun Mr Aziz moment.
To elevate this fanedit beyond the two in-movie improvements, we further get lots of extras.

Is it possible to make an even better edit of this film? Probably (I'm looking at you, lame end-credits pop song), but none exists. So until Bobson treats us to version 2.4, this is your go-to edition of Spiderman 2.
