For the poster, since it's for a FAN-EDIT, I suggest putting the FAN-EDIT TITLE on the poster. Otherwise it's a useless recreation of a template poster.
That's funny! The heart attack is almost entirely inconsequential to the story. I guess the one good purpose it serves is to re-establish that Vesper is on Bond's side (she hooks up the machine and revives him) after she has denied him the funds to keep playing poker. However, losing the "Vesper saves Bond" beat actually serves the purposes of my fanedit, so it's all good.DominicCobb said:Don't know how I missed this, looks cool. CR is a top five Bond film for me (and my first in theaters too), but somehow I don't mind the thought of all these cuts. I actually watched the film on TV recently, and they (for whatever reason) cut out the car defibrillator scene. I didn't even notice! Guess it's not too important.
It's probably too late for a suggestion, but honestly if you're removing the "Bond begins" elements, why not remove the cold open? Replace it with the African rundown? It think it would be cool to see an edit that makes CR just another Bond film, rather than a reboot.
Sorry, had an issue with my browser and lost the post. Edited the post just now.DominicCobb said:Um, okay.
Oh no, my worst fears confirmed!dangermouse said:I think you've cut too much and so the film is too jumpy.
Hmm. The original scene goes like this:dangermouse said:Been cut too heavily. For example, he gets the key to the car, gets in the car... and then jump cut to arriving at lunch with Mathis...with Vesper? How did she get there?
If you check my list of changes, I didn't actually touch that part of the film!dangermouse said:Bug tracking is at the wrong time - Le Chiffe gets called and leaves, then Bond places the bug, then he can track him.
You might recall that my intention was to eliminate the Bond-as-rookie stuff. I suppose either I've not succeeded in my intention, or perhaps your prior knowledge of the film is colouring your perception of the fanedit. Not sure which - maybe both. What do you think? I'm considering retooling some of the Bond/M stuff, so we'll see what happens here.dangermouse said:I think cutting M's suspicion was a mistake. He's a rookie, who screwed up - she would be unsure if she'd judged right after his bombmaker episode.
Thanks.dangermouse said:All the action beats are solidly cut.
I did keep Bond entering a password in the casino, yes, because Mendel asked him to. However, I cut his knowing smile before typing the password, which is the only reference to the password being "Vesper." (The keys Bond hits don't even spell Vesper, btw - a minor goof in the original film).dangermouse said:Why did you cut the password being vesper? - you left it in at the beginning. It's a big point in her realising she can trust Bond.
I'm glad you enjoyed it overall! I appreciate the time you took to view and give feedback.dangermouse said:However, I must say I enjoyed the film, and I was impressed with your editing skills. CR is a bit bloated!
Any others you can recall that you haven't mentioned? This is good stuff for me to know.dangermouse said:Quite a few obvious areas where cuts were made. Not visual or auditory, just pauses or jumps in the conversation which make it obvious something has been cut.
I've made some updates to my edit this week, based on your feedback:dangermouse said:Actually, with the car just cut out receiving the keys and cut straight to meeting Matis? The way you have it cut we expect something to happen with the car.
Re the bug tracking - maybe it's because you cut something inbetween? Maybe the defibrillator or something. It really doesn't flow right. I'll have to check the original!
You've cut out nearly all of the relationship with M, but you've kept in the beginning with the double-O. If you don't want the young Bond then I think that has to go? If not, then put back the concern that M has with Bond, especially considering his first mission (ONE bomb-maker) was a complete shambles.
Thank you!Zarius said:Good cuts, did'nt feel like anything was missing.
I'll check that part out again. And I'm glad you liked the clips!dangermouse said:PE - I'd cut the "at least this clears Mathias". The pause there is a bit too long. Otherwise plays out really well.
The Vesper v Bond scene is brilliant. Much stronger than the original.
Card game sans heart failure is great too.
