Brief Synopsis:
The same Spider-Man: Homecoming you love with a pinch of added responsibility.
Intention:
I like Spider-Man: Homecoming fine, however compared to all the other Spider-Man movies I feel like it was too generic and didn't resonate with me as much as it should. Peter, to me, lost his sense of responsibility and relatability. He turned from an average, nerdy, shy and awkward outcast to a privileged kid hell bent on proving himself to become an Avenger, looking down on his peers. That's all fine and dandy if he rediscovers his sense of responsibility and humility, and the film tries to do that, but an important part of rediscovering his responsibility and feeling of guilt after losing Uncle Ben was still missing. I wanted to remedy that, so I tweaked, trimmed, cut, added, modified until I was satisfied. I believe what I came up with is a movie that's a little faithful and overall better than what we got.
Additional Notes:
I took a lot of inspiration from Bobson Dugnutt's Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man while adding my own spin (ha) to the movie.

Editing Details:
I used Adobe Premiere Pro and Audition. Subtle regrade by Bobson Dugnutt.
Cuts and Additions:
+Add “2012” date over Stark Tower
*Replaced “8 Years Later” with “Present Day”
*Replace “Hey everyone” with Tony saying “Nice job kid” from Civil War
-Cut Tony’s “Skimpy Aunt May” joke
+Added deleted scene where Liz tries to convince Peter not to leave the group. I think it hits home harder how Peter’s letting his friends down and lends well to the responsibility theme
-Cut “How’s your Aunt” dialogue at Delmar’s
-Cut Ned’s infatuated “A thing to do after...”
-Cut “I larb you”
-Cut waiter hitting on Aunt May
-Cut Ned asking Peter several questions about his powers
*Changed Peter's ringtone to a familiar funky tune :D
*Change Ferris Bueller audio to actual audio from the movie
*Change music of Iron Man saving Peter to Hulkbuster musical cue from Age of Ultron
-Cut “Does this work?” And “I thought this was the Anti-Gravity gun” to make Toomes even more intimidating and someone who'll do anything to protect his family
-Cut Ned’s “Awesome” after Peter says he was almost vaporized
-Cut Ned’s “I just want to thank you for...” etc.
-Cut both instances of “instant kill” This does kinda ruin its payoff in Endgame, but I never liked how Tony kinda gave a killing machine to a kid. Also that can easily be cut from a potential Endgame edit.
-Cut Karen saying “You’ll have to create momentum.” Peter can (and should) figure this out on his own.
-Cut Toomes saying “8” from “8 years and not a word from the feds” and added a Danny Elfman cue like Bobson Dugnutt did in his edit.
-Cut Karen describing Aaron Davis’ age as 33. Since the movie has to take place in September 2016, Aaron Davis has to be 32.
-Cut Karen saying Peter was “98% successful”
*Rescored Iron Man saving the ferry with the Iron Man 3 Theme
+Created new Uncle Ben flashback using the Civil War bedroom scene footage and Amazing Spider-Man 1 footage I replaced in my Extended Edition (Martin Sheen Uncle Ben. Not so unbelievable after the multiverse) with echoed dialogue from previous scenes, Spider-Man 1, and Civil War to hit home how the last time he didn't interfere with someone's business, he lost the person he loves most. The music I used is "Uncle Ben" from the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. I always thought the "why" to Peter's responsibility (so basically his "need" to rediscover in contrast to his "want") was missing, or at least left very vague to the audience (except if you've seen past Spidey movies or at least Civil War, which you shouldn't be required to do--a film, especially the first in a new series, must stand on its own two feet).
-Cut gum under the bus joke
-Cut “I‘m looking at porn” gag. People seem to love this joke. I don’t.
+Added Danny Elfman's "Responsibility Theme" (using "Final Confrontation" from SM1) over Peter being stuck under the rubble and seeing his mask and his reflection in the water.
-Cut repeat of “If you’re nothing without this suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” We get it.
+Elfman's "Responsibility Theme" (using "Train/Appreciation" from SM2) plays one final time when Happy finds Toomes tied in a web before the music transitions to Giacchino's Spider-Man theme.
*Moved Toomes in prison to after Liz says goodbye to Peter
-Cut Audi dashboard
-Cut the whole “that was a test right?” exchange
*Moved Tony/Pepper proposal scene to mid-credits
*Replace credits song with the Ramones Spider-Man theme
-Cut Gwyneth Paltrow from the animated credits
*Replaced Captain America post credits scene with deleted Aaron Davis deleted scene. As much as I love the Cap scene it only works in the context of waiting in the theater for something meaningful, and that is lost when you can just skip to it with modern video players. I also prefer the Miles Morales reference much more.

So, i never really liked the original movie. It always felt kind of premature. This edit aimed to give peter back some responsibillity and successfully did though. The editing is on point, nothing feels out of place. The elfman-theme is gorgeous. On the rest i agree with the other reviewers.

Nice job :)

This is a definitely improved version over the original film, although I must confess it’s still not entirely to my liking. First things first, Ben Parker’s death scene is extremely well-done and well-placed in the story, giving back Peter his core element of the character that is still sorely missing from his MCU version. I bet that anyone who hasn’t seen the original film and TASM would never be able to tell the difference. Bravo to Masirimso17 for that! Moreover, the use of the classic Elfman theme is always a nice touch, and hearing it during the rubble scene -so damned fitting- brought some manly tears to my eyes. As for trimming down some of the usual MCU humor, you will never hear me complain about that, especially when it’s so perfectly done as in the Responsibility Edition. There’s also at least one scene added with Peter and Liz, as far as I remember, which felt a little de-saturated, but I’m not very sure I would have spotted that if I didn’t know this was a fan-edit.

My main complain is that the film still remains too goofy for my taste. And I strongly believe that cutting out a joke or two more would have been entirely possible and to the film’s benefit. My prime example, the elevator scene: It would have been so dramatic if the ending of that scene was trimmed down, instead of having caricatures of people shouting down the elevator shaft, killing the mood.

But that’s just something according to my taste. For anyone who has already enjoyed Homecoming and is looking for something more, this is the fan-edit for you.

I don't agree with every change made here ("but I never liked how Tony kinda gave a killing machine to a kid", he didn't, they hacked into the suit to unlock those features, Tony wasn't going to let him use it until he was ready), I liked some of the jokes that were cut (especially the "I'm looking at porn" joke), but I quite liked the Uncle Ben flashback, it was quite well-executed and smartly edited. I'm also glad the "8 years" continuity error is fixed, and the edit to make Toomes more ruthless was good as well. Not much else to say, it's mostly the same movie, just with some changes that I liked and some I didn't.

A few small changes, but a huge leap in enjoyment. This is vastly superior to the theatrical version with a few bits of nostalgia added for an extra punch of fun into the mix.

I’m not a fan of Iron Boy, so the changes to this were very welcome as it helps Spider-Man stand up on his own two feet more and stand alone more that be reliant on the MCU. If I decide to watch this film again, I’ll definitely watch this edit rather than the theatrical version.
