This edits the Murnau Foundation restoration (the one from 2000 not 2003) of Metropolis to sync it to Giorgio Moroder’s soundtrack.

Original Title: Metropolis (1927) / Giorgio Moroder presents Metropolis (1985)
New Title: Metropolis Morodered!!
Fanedit released on FE: May 2009
Original Runtime: 110
New Runtime: 82 minutes

Intention With This Edit: To re cut and sync the restored year 2000 edition of metropolis to Giorgio Moroders soundtrack.
So now you can watch a movie which was made in 1927, with a sound track added in 1985, that was restored in 2000 only to be edited in 2009.


* ** - Moroders intro added.
* ** - Scenes coloured using Moroder’s version as a rough guide
* ** - All dialog titles are now displayed using subtitles over the picture
* ** - Speed increased from 18 frames to 25 frames per second to match moroder’s version
* ** - Every scene has been adjusted or deleted to match the soundtrack.
* ** - A few scenes have been extended from Moroder’s version, one has been shortened.

There is a small annoying problem near the end climax where blank / black frames appear, these were on the restoration I used to edit from, removing them made things look worse so I left them.
The subtitle track is set to come on by default, I have tried it in 2 DVD players and windows media player and it works for me.


* ** Format: PAL DVD
* ** Audio: Both the Laserdisc and the VHS soundmix are Available Lineage
* ** is as follows:
* ** Audio 1 – from laserdisc > VHS tape > computer.
* ** Audio 2 > VHS tape > computer.
