The Babylon 5 Project aims to focus on the arc stories of the TV show by creating a series of films. This creates a more streamlined rewatch of Babylon 5 for those who want to maximize the arc without having to watch the mostly stand-alone episodes with arc storylines in them.
The Ultimate Comics Cut takes the best of the almost finished deleted scenes from the official “Alternate Universe Mode”. Five of the over thirty new minutes of deleted, alternate and unused scenes have been reintegrated into the film for an expanded new experience.
The story is extended with a flashback to emphasize Buck’s discomfort as the Man Out Of Time (trimmed from a later episode). The final battle is expanded to improve flow. Continuity errors are fixed (spaceships don’t change shape or numbers in mid-flight!). Jennifer’s photo is inserted for continuity. Repetitive shots are replaced. Duke’s unexplained Translight and Buck’s lamest lines are cut.
Go Like Hell is a light edit that tightens and focuses the narrative of Ford v. Ferrari, resulting in what I believe is a stronger film. I loved the original release, but even in theatres found myself questioning the authenticity of some aspects, causing a dissatisfaction that I felt wasn’t necessary.
