[align=center]Ok, after 2 years in the making, this "doomed" fanedit consecution is here. lol.
Thanks to all the faneditors on board!

C5_Marvel_3Dview.jpg



The fanedit community voted on what the theme for Consecution #5 would be. Marvel won with a single vote in front of Terminator, 2 in front of Star Trek and 3 in front of James Bond. As usual the rules were strict:

1. create a short fanedit that runs 15 minutes at max. (originaly 12 or 13, if I remember)
2. there has to be a plot
3. take the time you need to create a high quality edit.
4. has to feature the Marvel hero universe as a major part.

The faneditors could choose from the entire universe of Marvel movies to create their shorts, cut them down to the essence or create a new plot by mashing them up. Boon, Jorge and TMBTM were the ones in charge of this project, helping wherever they could with suggestions and advice, but was also in charge of allowing and disallowing submissions. In the end 8 fascinating works of fanediting art made it on the DVD.

Dwight Fry - A Psychogenic Fugue – 12:39
Rogue-theX - Mighty Mutants vs. The Magnetic Man – 8:15
Phantom Stranger - Rise of the Kingpin – 14:48
Mollo - Spider-man: The Dark Side – 10:20
The Magician - Blade: Man or Monster – 13:20
The Magician - Cpt America: XXX – 12:22
blueyoda - Rejected – 11:24
TMBTM - Iron Blood – 11:57

So I'm not a huge fan of Consecutions but this one had some built up anticipation behind it.

I watched these all in one sitting. Here's my review: (*usual disclaimer: nothing written below is meant as a personal attack on any editor. This is simply my opinion of the edits*)


1) A Psychogenic Fugue by Dwight Fry: I read the description that it was supposed to be like a Lynch film, well mission accomplished! The font used in the credits seemed very Lynchian (Lost Highway maybe? also the jazz part). And the end scene seemed like something out of Mullholland Drive. The opening was strong and a nice story was told. Well done! 9/10

2) Mighty Mutants vs. The Magnetic Man by Rogue-theX: Ummm, all kinds of awesome right out of the gate with those opening credits! My only complaint about this one, it was TOO short! It left me wanting to see the next chapter. 10/10

3) Rise of the Kingpin by Phantom Stranger: This was a pretty well executed fanedit. But not the most entertaining. Just my opinion. 7/10

4) Spider-man: The Dark Side by Mollo: Another very well executed edit. That spidey is one sick puppy! 9/10

5) Blade: Man or Monster by The Magician: This one had a bit of a technical issue. There was some pixelation at various parts of the movie. This one didn't really grab me, blame it on Sticky Fingaz acting maybe! 6/10

6) Cpt America: XXX by the Magician: This also had a technical issue, there were some spots where the audio was out of sync. This was another one that didn't really grab me. Porn acting is never spectacular so while initially it was kinda funny, it wore thin pretty quick.
*Props to the Magician though for the very cool "time lapse" news footage from key historical moments.* 6/10

7) Rejected by blueyoda: This one had me laughing during a great deal of it. The first X-Men idea was frigging great! 9/10

8) Iron Blood by TMBTM: Probably not fair to pick the "best" one out of any consecution (although we are rating them individually) but this is definitely it! Just a genius idea executed flawlessly. I had a grin on my face the whole time at the awesomeness of it. 10/10


The Extras were cool. The Hulk Intro was inspired, and the Tenacious D was a sneaky bit of editing!

Overall I give this consecution an 8/10. There are some real gems on here. And again, these ratings are just my opinion. I know a lot of work went into all of these and creating an interesting story and fitting it into a small amount of time is a tough task. So job well done to all the editors involved in this project!

I'm wondering if this might be (re?) compression related. I have only flicked through the disc so far, but I did notice some heavy pixelation on some of the bonus shorts that I know wasn't there originally.

- Some bonus were indeed re encoded by me, sorry about that but I did not want to make it a DL DVD and I wanted to keep those bonus.

- IIRC, The Blade: Man or Monster short was re encoded by Boon, long time ago, because the original aspect ratio was not good. So i guess the original version was also pixellate, but the re encoding surely did not improve it.

I don't mind, y'do what you gotta do. :)

I thought it might have been an error as it's pretty huge break-up near the end of Ode to Spidey.

Just finished up watching this too. Good work everyone!!

1) A Psychogenic Fugue by Dwight Fry: I enjoyed the beginning of this one, but I got a little lost towards the end. I'm not very familiar with Lynch's work or style though, so I put it down to that.

2) Mighty Mutants vs. The Magnetic Man by Rogue-theX: This was cool, I really enjoyed the credits at the beginning and was ready for the next chapter by the end.

3) Rise of the Kingpin by Phantom Stranger: A well done cross-over. I wondered how, if at all, the characters would interact. the payoff was well done.

4) Spider-man: The Dark Side by Mollo: I really enjoyed this one. A nice alternate take to the Spidey origin that had me cracking up laughing in places.

5) Blade: Man or Monster by The Magician: I'm not very familiar with Blade the series at all. This was well edited, and I wouldn't mind checking out the rest of it now.

6) Cpt America: XXX by the Magician: I thought that the Magician had filmed the part with Hitler and the Red Skull himself before I realised the footage was from a porn spoof. Does this mean everyone who downloads the consecution has to go out and buy it?

7) Rejected by blueyoda: I nice selection of well executed ideas here. I don't think I'll be able to watch the sitcom scene from X-Men in it's original form for a while without being reminded of this.

8) Iron Blood by TMBTM: A really well done mash-up. Plenty of interaction between the different movies and great editing, what more can you ask for.

Bonus: I nice selection of extras from UA. I particularly enjoyed the Tenacious D/ Spidey clip. I near pissed myself watching it, very well done.

An extra shout out for the DVD menu design too, I like it and I think it fit the theme very well.

Thanks for the reviews.

Do you any of you had any problem with the video motion of my short edit?
Looks okay on my home DVD player, but stuttering big time when played with VLC (?)

I'm actually one of the rebels who uses GOM Media Player and not VLC and I didn't notice any stuttering.

Ok, thanks, it also works fine even with Window Media Player.
It's a VLC trouble (neglify also noticed this on .VLC)

My mpeg2 looks fine as separate file. it's only once burn with the DVD that VLC has trouble with it.
(strange... just avoid VLC to play your DVDs, I guess. plus it sometimes skips the intros of the fanedits.)

Yup. VLC is pretty terrible to me, but I know many use it and like it. Tried it once and didn't like it. :? :oops:

None of the links are working for me, I swear Mediafire must have it in for me or something:-(
Maybe it's JDownloader, is there another program that will work with DLC's???

Mediafire doesn't work for me either. There probably needs to be an update from Jdownloader.

Download took several attempts, kept having to RESET the links, but in the end it worked.

Just wanted to congratulate all the contributing editors on this collection.
They all did a fine job. I was thoroughly entertained.

The edits cover a very wide variety of styles, so I think there is something here for everyone.

While I like and appreciate all the contributions, in terms of personal highlights for me was
Rogues MIGHT MUTANTS and TMBTMs IRON BLOOD.

Again, GREAT JOB GUYS!!!

Thanks for the fun!:)
