Mr Dugnutt does it again, taking a deeply flawed film and giving it the necessary adjustments to make it . The editing, as always when it comes to his fanedits, is seamless and really enhances the best moments of this film while making the cringe-worthy ones disappear or be much more tolerable (the latter are the ones that can't be excised due to narrative coherence requirements).
This edit must have been a complicated challenge, since the movie is really problematic in many places (specially compared with its two predecesors) but Mr Dugnutt really manages to make it a definitely enjoyable watch.
Give it a try, you won't regret it.
Good job Bobson Dugnutt!
The theatrical version felt rushed to me, trying to mix too many villains in one single movie.
This "hybrid cut" fixes it for me. It is incredible how these extra 6 minutes (with some skilled editing) can improve so much the result. I enjoyed this version as much as the two first movies of the saga.
This worked really well. I liked the original, but I loved this one. The small changes, the extra bits -- these all add up to a much ore satisfying film, closer in quality and feel to the first two Raimi pictures. Great job. Definitely my preferred version.
A noticeable improvement over the Editor's Cut, but still needs trimming and reordering.
I did not like the Theatrical Cut. Really, really didn't. Only after hearing good things about the Editor's cut two years ago did I give the movie a second chance, and it was much, much better. The addition of the deleted scenes and the reordering of several scenes made the movie much more comprehensible, and Peter's addiction made a lot more sense. However, there were a few scenes missing from it that I remembered vaguely from the TC. And this is where Bobson's Hybrid Cut comes along.
The HC does what it aims to do well - allowing the audience to see the full story by creating the longest possible version of Spider-Man 3. Bobson's editing, as usual, is technically superb. However, the edit doesn't fix the film's major narrative flaws, which is why I deducted a few points. For example, three unrelated villains are introduced in the first 20 minutes by seemingly randomly cutting between them (especially between 8:10 and 17:07). I think the narrative can be much stronger by further reordering several scenes throughout the movie, and hopefully trimming others (e.g., emo Parker).
