(regarding the DVD…)

Enjoyable. Not an improvement to the original, but a great fanedit idea. It was fun to see the movie as Quentin intended, but I like the chronological unrated version.

Also, I think this could have been executed a bit better (cuts, fades, a video anomaly as Alabama runs to Clarence after the shootout).

I will disagree with Boon on most of his quality comments, tho. Reading his review would lead one to believe that this is riddled with errors, when I was only distracted a few times by editing and not a single time by audio issues. Of course, when using deleted scenes, quality is not expected to be perfect. Also, I can sit through a VHS workprint happily, so perhaps my standards are too low, LOL

This edit succeeds in its goal of preserving Quentin’s screenplay and is a good watch. I would, however, rather have a chronological extended version of “True Romance” – or perhaps a true fanedit ;)

Thank you, blueyoda!

Pros:
-very interesting, creative idea for a fanedit
-great way of experience the story – the narrative works better this way
-feels more like a Tarantino film
-deleted scenes look good, but the difference in quality not unnoticeable
-new ending is infinitely better

Cons:
-repeated shot of Jack Black opening theatre door
-a lot of the edits, especially all the fade outs, felt unnatural

Overall, a great edit. If you’re a fan of True Romance, you’ll love this.

7/10, 9/10 if the editing was better
