I've been listening to quite a few BvS fan commentaries recently. It's probably one of the worst super-expensive movies ever made, so discussion of it's flaws big and small are fascinating to me. Trouble is, syncing these fan commentaries up just so, is often difficult and a right pain if you want to pause the movie and come back to later... and for a 3-hour movie, it's likely you will want to pause it.

So I'm going to make myself a copy of the movie with all the commentaries attached and edited to sync up perfectly with the 03.02.33 runtime. It's not really sure if this is a "fanedit" project, so it might not be right for ifdb but maybe some people would be interested when it's done.

I'm yet to decide exactly what format to make the video (mp4 or mkv?). My list of potential commentaries to include are...

YouTube fan commentaries I'm considering:

Oliver Harper
Rant and Bollox
Collider
Caped-Joel
ComicBookCast2
Geekvolution
Til The Last Credit
Dukect
Simplistic Reviews
The1stTake
evilscar23
WorldClassBullshitters
Samuel Otten
165 Entertainment
ComicsWithFlicks
Bernard Commentary

YouTube fan commentaries, I may, or may not include due bad audio quality, too much silence, or something else:

Red Letter Media/Previously Recorded (Partial general discussion)
Akasan
Parker Smykle
The Real Mr. Robinson
DCDomingo
Dan Campos
Cinemaniac Jean
Werd To My Nerd

Found one good commentary on SoundCloud:

Nerd Soup

I think YouTube is covered but if there are any other places with good commentaries let me know.

Sounds good, thanks. I didn't even think of checking out bandcamp.

I've got quite far along with putting this project together now. For a bit of variety/fun, I've decided to convert the movie to black & white, which looks really stunning IMO (Snyder can do visuals, if nothing else). It'll give something else to look at when listening to the commentary tracks but it could be muxed with the regular colour version afterwards.

So far the audio track list is as follows...

01. (Original movie audio stereo)
02. Oliver Harper
03. Rant and Bollox*
04. Collider
05. Weekly Planet*
06. Comic Multiverse
07. 165 Entertainment*
08. Cinema Skwad
09. Comic Book Cast*
10. Comics With Flicks
11. Dukect CCS Fan Stream*
12. Feature Creatures*
13. Film Commentary with Jarrod*
14. Geekvolution*
15. Justice League Universe*
16. Main Street Cinema*
17. Nerd Soup
18. Nerdy Nick
19. SCARmentary*
20. Simplistic Reviews*
21. Talking at the Movies
22. World Class Bullshitters

(*) Mixed in original movie audio on these tracks, real low in the mix (The other tracks already had it in there), as I think it helps with the experience. The 'Comic Multiverse' track has also been heavily leveled out, so one commentator is not 2 billion times louder than the other, which was a shame as it's a good listen otherwise. All tracks have been edited to make them match the movies run-time, so some length intros and outro had to go. Check out the original videos to hear those.

There were another 8 fan commentaries I decided not to include because they were either very poor audio quality (The ones I have included aren't exactly studio quality!), they featured far too much silence, the people commenting were jackasses (IMHO), or in one case the commentary was in Spanish. If any Spanish speakers would like this one included, let me know...

Have you thought about doing a Sin City approach and leaving other things colored in? Superman/Doomsday's red eye beams, the green kryptonite, Luthor's yellow pee jar? ;)

Sounds like a hell of a lot of work for no added benefit to the project. Color or B/W, IMO.

Yeah, I'm not going the Sin City route. The true Sin City effect is a lot more than red bits and black and white and would need extensive FX work. B&W looks really nice on it's own...

Behold, at the click of a button, 66 hours of "entertainment"...! :D

Not at all. It's subtle. As subtle as having a 33 year old benevolent protagonist being impaled for our sins.

Maybe it's too much. Or maybe it's not quite enough...

^ LOL. Like it. I did consider messing round with the shadow behind Snyder, to incorporate the Rotten Tomatoes score.

In light of recent news, you might want to change the focus for the artwork.

Because of recent events, I made a new poster for your project if you would like to use it.

Sad-Fleck is not a bad idea but not at that low resolution. I'll think of something.

New cover. Less funny but more on point for what this is...

Whoops forgot to move this thread when it was finished. It's not going on ifdb, as it's not really a proper fanedit. So it's PM only :) .
