Blade Runner 2049 1.1 by 15MaF – This edit tightens up some narrative dialogue here and there and trims off some excess shots, all for being too on the nose essentially, but isn’t too heavy handed with it as Wallace’s monologues remain in full – If only to provide a deeper psychological framing for Luv’s own psychotic tendencies. Where it is heavy handed is in the complete removal of the character Mariette. She is still technically present in one or two places, but cropped out and pushed back into the the periphery as an extra. This edit also re grades the colour of the film to that of a more neutral palette and pulls the fogged in stylized highlights back out to a realistic luminescence.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Arkenstone Edition by Kerr – The third and final installment of my “Arkenstone” edit trilogy. Like before, I’ve tried to keep the focus as much as possible on Bilbo, Thorin and Gandalf, while still giving the various side characters their moments to shine, without drawing attention away from the main story.
