This was such a solid edit. I've seen the movie enough time to know what scenes were removed/added but a casual watcher wouldn't notice them being gone. I'm glad the "To Do List" was added since it should have been in the theatrical cut from the get go. The PTSD added a nice element to what Peter had been mentally going through since Endgame. He's a 16 year old kid who fought a war against aliens...who wouldn't want a break from superheroing.
I watched the version without the bus/drone scene and frankly it wasn't missed and now feels like it slows the movie down for a few extra minutes of comedy. Also removing the scenes with Happy & co. escaping the drones was a nice touch. Letting the final act focus on Spidey & Mysterio felt better paced. The editing was done perfectly and felt like one fluid scene.
My only complaints, which a very minor are the missing Happy/May romance. I know it's cheesy and does nothing for the plot but I still enjoyed the interaction between the two of them and awkwardness from Peter. The other issue was the audio for "Left Hand Free" was a tad to high during the suit assembly scene which kind of drowned out Peter.
All in all kudos to Masirimso17 for doing an amazing job and letting me watch it. This will be my go to Far From Home movie from now on!
Have to credit Masirimso17 with doing a top-notch job here, on what was a far-from-perfect theatrical release. Spider-Man is hands-down my favourite superhero, even since I was a kid, and it's been hard for me to see the films get it wrong time and again (mainly the Garfield franchise tbh). Homecoming had the right mix of fun and action about it, but then Far From Home just went a bit heavy on the slapstick which really slowed the film down and made it irritating as hell.
Masirimso17's changes to the film are 100% positive and has made a slow, dull film at once lively and entertaining, whilst still retaining the fun. Due to his seemless editing skills, I only noticed the changes by comparison. Gone are the irritating Peter tingle references, the Aunt May/Happy romance, and Happy rescuing the kids in London. Trimmed down is the bus drone sequence. All very, very welcome changes!
Well done, and hat's off! I would only say one thing for a possible v.2: the audio at 0:06:18 (in the school corridor) suddenly gets unbearably loud mid-dialogue - may need a tweak there. Also, I feel that the 'humourous' interaction between the 2 teachers on the trip could be trimmed down, as they get quite annoying after a while. Other than that, this is defo my go-to version of this movie from now on!
Upon preparing for No Way Home, I decided to give Masirimso's edit of Far From Home a shot, since I always remember not enjoying the original cut of this when it came out on theaters.
For transparency, I watched the version with the bus scene still included, just edited down to as bare bones and plot neccesary as possible, there is another version of the edit that removes it all together. The edit was done as best as one could, least to keep it in the plot with minimal time on the scene and keep it from being a snore fest.
Aside from it, the removal of the fling sub-plot, the reintegration of deleted scenes and removal of some scenes that amounted to not much this is the best way to go about seeing Far From Home
A fantastic edit which greatly improves a flawed film.
I was not a huge fan of the theatrical cut of Far From Home. The first hour was, in my opinion, too much of a high-school drama, focused on the uninteresting bits of school life. This edit fixes that very well, by trimming many of those superfluous bits. I also appreciated the new Spider-sense sound effect and the trimming of the Tingle.
The editing was technically perfect here - scenes were extended and integrated seamlessly and the trims (including the Edith drone strike scene) were perfect as well. However, I did not like the added flashbacks and wish they were removed.
I need to watch Bobson Dugnutt's Elemental Expansion Edition again to decided which one will be my new go-to edit, but either way - Masirimso17's edit is definitely highly recommended.
