    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageRanger613 won the favorite edit of the month of September with his fanedit The Hobbit: Into the Fire
    This is the "version 2" of his firs fanedit The Hobbit Fire of the Dragon, that also wn the favorite edit of the month in June.
    Congratulations, Ranger613 And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    This is as close as Desolation comes to being a 'book' cut of Tolkien's the Hobbit.

    Ranger613:
    "This cut has none of the zany dwarven antics of previous cuts and is strongly faithful to the novel (if you overlook Legolas, and Bard being a bargeman). It is different enough from previous versions that I felt comfortable giving it its own release-- 'Dragon' is 120 min (41 min cut) , Into the Fire is 98 min (63 min cut). This is a version I hope fans of the novel will enjoy, and is in many ways a better movie than "Dragon", narrative-wise."

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageNJVC has won the 'favorite edit of the month' for August, with his fanedit The Dark Knight Saga Recut Part III. Congratulations, NJVC and thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    This edit aims to strip down the finale of Nolan's trilogy to its core, emphasising the stronger aspects of the story and hopefully offering a more emotionally satisfying conclusion to Batman's story as a whole.

    NJVC:
    The Dark Knight Rises has some of the strongest elements of the trilogy, but is ultimately weighed down by its bloated running time, illogical narrative (especially in the 3rd act), jokey one-liners, and arguably, the failure to stick the landing in the film's final moments.
    This series of three edits intends to streamline Nolan's Batman films, keeping the tone consistent throughout and emphasizing the strongest elements of the series.

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageRanger613 has won his second 'favorite edit of the month' in a row, this time for the month of July with his fanedit Blade Runner: Tears in the Rain. Big Congratulations, Ranger613, and thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    "Tears in the Rain" is a vastly different version of the film, which serves as an alternate look at Ridley Scott's masterpiece, not an extension of the original. It focuses more on the Replicants and their quest to meet their maker. Rick Deckard is presented as a competent determined hunter and killer (unlike the relatively insecure counterpart in the original), in many ways an antagonist-- this is a world where Replicants are outlawed and killed on identification. They attack only when cornered, but mean no harm to humans. Not unless they can help it... This film is presented in high contrast black and white to accentuate the noir feel of the original. Trimmed down and fast paced, I hope this edit will intrigue, excite and entice fans of the original and new viewers alike.

    Ranger613:
    "Blade Runner is one of (if not) my favorite films. I created this edit to give myself and other fans a new way of experiencing the material. This is not an improvement over the original, nor a slightly different version like the "Director's" or "Workprint" edition to the "Final Cut". I wanted a reorganized, unique and novel way of watching this classic, and with this edit I think I have achieved that. I also wanted to see how the film would look in black and white, and feel the noir atmosphere really comes across well in black and white. I provided a sample clip below."

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageRanger613 won the favorite edit of the month of June with his first fanedit The Hobbit: Fire of the Dragon

    Congratulations, Ranger613 And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    This is a lean version of The Desolation of Smaug which retains all the greatness of the movie and drops all the fluff, making it a better paced and more entertaining movie overall. Fire of the Dragon dispenses with many superfluous elements of the film like the elf-dwarf love triangle, the dwarves being left behind in Laketown, the orc assault on Laketown, as well as any other deviations from the main narrative.

    Ranger613:
    "As much as I admire Peter Jackson as a director, I felt like Desolation was a good 2 hour movie trapped in a 3 hour mess. This version cuts out the extra material and keeps the narative focused on Bilbo.
    While most extra material is cut out, two scenes are retained in their entirety in this cut, namely the barrel escape and the dragon battle. If you enjoyed these sequences in the theatrical cut, then this is the version for you. I will be releasing a separate version soon which cuts both these sequences cut out (a 'purist' edition without barrel battles or molten gold, called 'Into the Fire')""

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageJetSetWilly won the favorite edit of the month of May with Full Metal Jacket - Locked & Loaded

    Congratulations, JetSetWilly! And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    This fanedit take the boot camp scenes as flashback during the vietnam ones.

    JetSetWilly:
    "Many people say the boot camp scenes at the beginning of the film are the strongest. My intention? Mix them into the Vietnam scenes. Hopefully, it gives the film a fresh perspective, as boot camp is now told in flashback form, with the appropriate boot camp scenes following Pyle's downfall used. Other material has been excised."

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageTM2YC won the favorite edit of the month of April with his fanedit of Thor - The Dark World.Thor - The Dark World: Hard Forged Edition

    Congratulations, TM2YC! And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    This is Thor - The Dark World' with the narrative in a more logical order, so scenes now flow from one to the other naturally. A new ending has been created more in keeping with the narrative thrust of both this film and the first 'Thor' movie. Repetitious exposition scenes either removed, truncated or used at a point in the story where they actually make sense. Also two deleted scenes have been colour corrected and added back.

    TM2YC:
    "I really enjoyed 'Thor - The Dark World' but instantly I could see the potential for a light fanedit. I couldn't see too many big creaking flaws but it was clear that the film had been heavily re-edited and re-shot in post-production leading to it feeling 'choppy' and disordered at times. This isn't a radical recut so if you hated the theatrical cut you'll hate this too (e.g. I've retained all the goofy humour because I loved it).

    In some ways this is an 'anti-fanedit' of sorts, as often instead of re-arranging the scenes and footage in new creative ways, I've simply been putting things back in the order in which they were originally scripted (Or I imagined they had been).

    Some sequences were impossible to restore to their original state in this way (And I wouldn't have wanted to anyway), so I also include an alternate cut of the first act, that I believe more closely recreates that 'workprint' version. This 30 minute cut includes an additional 3 more deleted scenes (With FX finished "to a point"), a radically different sequence of events and choice of scenes."

    2. Favorite Edit of the Month

    Inline ImageHAL 9000 won the favorite edit of the month of March with his new Star Wars fanedit Star Wars: Episode III - Labyrinth Of Evil

    Congratulations, HAL 9000. And thanks to all the faneditors who made an edit that month and to all the people who voted for this contest.

    The third of the revamped '9000 Series,' Labyrinth Of Evil delivers a re-crafted perspective on Star Wars Episode III in keeping with the drive of the original trilogy of films. Anakin's fall to the dark side is portrayed in a more believable way, with political motivations that are ignited by, rather than preceded by, a desire to save his wife. Padme's role is expanded, and her fate is made to match her daughter's memories.

    HAL 9000:
    "By stripping away extraneous tangents and bolstering attention to character development, this edit seeks to improve the original film. The original trilogy is regarded as the template toward which the prequels strive. The prequels are made to submit to the continuity and drive of the originals to the degree possible.".
