Proof the people in charge of the Oscars 'best editing' award are idiots:

^ Aye, that popped up in my feed! A fun little tribute which makes some great points, especially the part about Imhotep being a powerful supernatural villain, but not so powerful he can't be battled at all. I think that's a big part of why superhero movies are doing so well - both sides are powered, so the playing field is leveled in a more interesting way that both sides simply having guns. Thing is, superhero movies aren't exactly adventure movies, because they tend to miss that element of journeying into a new and unknown land. (John Carter had that element, but I don't think that movie works for all kinds of other reasons.)

And if The Mummy 2 had pitted our heroes against vampires... yeah, I wish Sommers had gone there.

Nice look at the thinking of Scorsese's regular editor Thelma Schoonmaker Powell:

Woof. Watching that hurt my brain (in a good way).

^ I started with Lindsay Ellis' video, and when it was done, assumed there wouldn't be enough more to say about it all to justify an hour-long video from Maggie Mae Fish... and I was wrong! Both are worth watching, and in that order.

On a whim, I went YouTube-surfing for a positive review of my beloved The Core. And, guess what? I found one! From only a few months ago. Sweet! :D

Chris Hartwell released a video about his edits on the Hobbit trilogy. Great stuff in there. I reached out to him for the links and invited him to join fanedit.org and he replied saying he’s seriously considering it. Hopefully we’ll see him here soon, he seems like a really nice, upbeat guy!

Hi everyone, does anyone know where I  could get an HD version of the alternate ending for Rambo: first blood? 

Is it on any of the blu rays?

Thanks
