Another great entry in the Tarantino Tales!
The audio work here is absolutely amazing and the new music is truly inspired.
It gives the movie a completely different energy and yet still feels very Tarantino-ish.
Loved this addition.

There are couple cuts that felt a bit too abrupt. One in particular that cuts away from a subtitle dialogue before being able to fully read it.

With nearly 90 minutes cut, I did find it challenging at times to fully understand/follow all the plot points in the new narrative. And as one would expect, with the story this condensed, the focus is on the Greatest Hits Plot Points, thus some scenes lose their nuances and greater context.

But as alternative viewing experience, this is a great watch! :)

To be fair I only watched episode 7. But right off with the presentation I could tell this was going to be something special, and I was right!

This was very well thought out and I felt I was getting a whole story even though it was cut down to just over an hour.

The music choices were fantastic and fit the scenes all very well

This is something I can't quite put into words. You just need to experience it yourself.

A very strong edit that does cut IG down but still has a mostly cohesive story and highlights many of the strengths of the film. Despite cutting down the scenes majorly, thankfully this isn't distractingly noticeable aside from maybe Bridget's interrogation. Yes Shoshanna's character's backstory is reduced to a flashback but you still get enough of her for her scenes to make sense and Landa still registers as a unique villain. The Bowie songs are fantastically chosen and all fit, with the best one being Psycho Killer in the Bear Jew beatdown which basically makes us see the mindset of the Basterds. Not to mention Changes at the end of the edit was perfect. A shame that some iconic moments aren't in this edit but still very very well done.

Addendum: A few changes were made and upon watching it again, made it absolutely flawless. Great beforehand, perfect now.

Just finished watching this edit, and I have to say it's pretty damn good.
It does a brilliant job of shortening the movie without feeling like anything's missing, and the music choices are amazing especially in the finale, which is a two minute masterpiece. While I'm not the biggest fan of the original, I found this to be a very enjoyable hour.
My only real complaint is that I watched this with my wife who'd never seen the original, and she was pretty confused by the swastika branding. She didn't really get what had happened even at the end, so that could be clearer. I also thought that the original intro scene of Hans killing the Jews under the floorboards was great, and it's a shame that it was cut, but I understand why it was cut, so I don't think it's at all necessary for it to be in the edit.
(This edit has been updated and my review score has been adjusted to address that)

If you like Inglorious Basterds, you should love this edit. Definitely a recommend.

I really loved the creativity and sound effects of the opening animation towards the Red Apple Logo and of course the logo itself along with the art style for the David Bowie tribute including the colours for the lettering, The flow and the animation of the cigarette smoke perfectly captured both the physics and vibe of having a good ole smoke not that I smoke but that’s the impression I got from it.

The way you repurposed the opening scene of the theatrical cut as a black and white flashback was an effective use of the non liner narrative and a good way to telegraph to the audience the reason for Shosanna’s fear and anxiety of Hans Landa as it also makes that scene of her brief emotional break down all the more effective emotionally since the repurposed opening and her emotional state after Hans departure happen in a much shorter space of time.

Speaking of timing the use of music throughout the edit was timed nicely with the start of certain scenes and the themes of the varying music choices you used felt thematically appropriate to the scenes that you included them in with a personal favourite of mine being the use of David Bowie’s Changes as Raine…hmm how do I put this…artistically arranges Landa’s face to complete his masterpiece as it gave the moment more iconography and a dark sense of humour.

The fast perspective switching between some of the scenes was an improvement over the theatrical cut such as the switching between the tussle of Shosanna and Zoeller and the scenes outside the projection booth as each builded towards Shosanna’s vengeance from the grave upon the Nazis.

Additionally I really liked the use of text used throughout the film which was not only close to that of Tarantino’s style but the structural placement of each of the narrative acts text serves and could potentially serve as a good indicator for First Time Faneditors of how to do a Five Act Structure or at the very least it could provide a hint to them as to how each acts are expected to be structured within a Fanedit’s five basic structures that eventually tie the whole thing together in a nice neat package.
