We have a ton of new fanedits (9!) this week.
My objective with this edit was to make a feature-length (2 hour) sequel to Army of Darkness. The main plot takes advantage of the Knights of Sumeria plotline in Season 3, but there are scenes and dialogue lifted from Seasons 1 and 2 to restructure the narrative. This edit is entirely focused on continuing the Army of Darkness storyline, and it ignores much of what happens in Ash vs Evil Dead (no cabin revisits, for example).
This edit focuses the narrative on the renunciation, criticism, and eventual opposition to the goals of their god Arishem. IMO this movie was a metaphor for the different ways of questioning authority – misguided soldiers, missionaries, colonizers, etc… these basic concepts are I wanted to elevate.
Captain America’s “Civil War” made us choose between Duty and Friends. It pitted friends and colleagues against each other. Eternals presents this dilemma with far higher stakes. Now we have Duty not just to a government but to the parent/creator, and going against that duty will impact billions of lives. Now the Friends aren’t just colleagues for years, but family for millenia.
This is a horror version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It uses much but not all of Corridor Crew’s VFX. 99% of the music and score is replaced to give it a 70’s horror movie vibe. Slightly grindhoused. Warning: rated R imagery. Some viewers may find the content disturbing. Tyler Durden probably spliced some of this film. Enjoy!
At 2 hours and 32 minutes, “The Batman Unmasked” doesn’t redefine the original source but delivers a leaner thriller while maintaining the essential mood and story.
This edit removes the extensive expository dialogue from Gordon, makes the Penguin a strong mob-boss (not a buffoon), changes Batman’s overall arc, and restructures the storyline to remove and replace the studio tacked-on flood/shooter ending.
This is Spicediver’s 1080p high definition rebuild of Dune The Alternative Edition Redux, his 2012 fanedit (in 480 standard definition) of David Lynch’s 1984 science fiction film.
The infamous flop shortened by half an hour, distracting side-plots removed from the film to hopefully make it feel a little more buoyant.
