Brief Synopsis:
Spider-Man 3 Redemption – A true fanedit that creates a tighter movie with villains moved to supporting roles to allow the Peter/Harry story to reach its deserved finale.

In this version Flint Marko is no longer the killer of Peter’s uncle, a lot of the humour has also been removed. Peter’s fall to the darkside is no longer brought about through guilt but through his ego and new found self importance.
This version gives more focus to the journeys of Peter and Harry and how both find redemption for themselves.
Intention:
Badscooter first created this edit over a decade ago and since seems to have retired from fanediting. Having really enjoyed his original edit, I wanted to remaster it and bring it to 1080p with 5.1 surround sound so everyone can enjoy it in all its glory once again.
Special Thanks:
Badscooter for creating the original fanedit back in 2010.

  • Blu-Ray
Editing Details:
After witnessing the beautifully crafted Spider-Man 2 we all waited with bated breath for the 2007 release of Spider-Man 3. The trailers and posters promised so much but on its release we saw a movie that just couldn’t live up to the hype.

Studio & director couldn’t agree and production was fraught with scripting & scheduling problems.

The final film felt rushed with too many villains and inter connecting stories all fighting for screen time. Fans felt cheated in the handling of characters & classic storylines.

Now there is Spider-Man 3 Redemption. A true fan edit that finds a tighter movie with villains moved to supporting roles to allow the Peter/Harry story to reach its deserved finale.
Cuts and Additions:
- Added a 20-second disclaimer at the start of the edit, detailing the requirements to watch this fanedit.

- Added a clicking sound when Harry turns off the TV, this was lost in the original edit.

All other cuts from Badscooter's original edit remain:

- Changed the opening scene, removed the Peter monologue, The Broadway musical & Harry taking the performance enhancers has been moved to later.

- Sandman is no longer Uncle Ben’s killer. I have removed all elements of this from the movie.

- Gwen Stacy is no longer a model. All references to this have been removed. It’s hard enough to believe the Peter is dating one model/actress without adding another to the story. Gwen remains now as an unintentional antagonist to Mary Jane.

- Harry now helps Peter through his own free will; he no longer needs the butler to explain about Norman’s death.

- The symbiote attaches itself to Peter when he is vulnerable after the disaster of his proposal to Mary Jane. His guilt over killing the man he thought responsible for Ben’s death no longer plays a part.

- I have removed a lot of the humour which I felt didn’t work such as the Peter strut & JJ’s desk.

- The Jazz club scene is also shorter, removing most of the dance.

- The news reporter and all the scenes with kids have been trimmed or removed as I felt there was overkill in the original cut.

- I have also cut lines of dialogue I felt unnecessary or cheesy. Some I couldn’t remove due to it causing problems with the tone of other lines' delivery or musical cues sounding out of place. Leaving these lines in shouldn’t cause too many problems.

Don't take my dropping a point off for narrative and enjoyment as a sight against the editor, but the movie it's self. This is far better than what we got as an official release and is my go to when watching the trilogy.

Although I must admit that the original movie never did it for me (and so many others), this edit made it slightly better. I realize that this is "just" a re-edit of another edit, so most glory goes to the original editor, this is still done well and in HD and everything flows nicely. I did not realize any flaws in the edits (neither audio nor video) and the quality is very good.
The real problems with this movie unfortunately have nothing to do with the editing, since there is not a lot more you can do to edit here in terms of making this movie any better. Although there are some really cool elements and for that time well done CG effects, the entire movie and especially Toby's acting just does not hold up to today's standard :(
But that is just my opinion, but solid editing jobs were done here nonetheless!

Hello, this is a take on Raimi's Spider-Man 3 that is far superior to the theatrical release.

Cheesy dialogue is drastically reduced, and the story is more consistent and mature this way.

You will not be thrown out of the experience by any shameful piece of dialogue or senseless storylines.

The HD remaster is delightful. And the little touches added, here and there, are really good.

I only had one more wish:
- that Sandman was removed from the final scene. We don't really need a forced team up between Sandman and Venom now. Venom alone is enough to be a menace, and they (Brock and the Symbiote) can be enough to get to MJ or to kill Harry.
- the last time Spidey sees Sandman could be when they fight in the underground, and the fact that Sandman survives could easily be a post-credit scene.

PS: I did this changes in a fanedit of Spider-Man 3 that I tried to do, but it did not get approval because of its poor audio and video quality, which I agree!
:-D


All in all, great fanedit, great remaster, much better than the original, thank you!

This remake is in superb A/V quality (20GB file size) and is very well edited. I recommend replacing your copy with this one if you're a fan of Badscooter's original.
