Memento Mori – Memento remixed by Jorge http://fanedit.org/ifdb/media/reviews/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/06/1c/26/_mementofront-134091001887.jpg
Added transitions to smooth film.
A few trims here and there.
This is an old fanedit so video quality isn’t the best. But it really didn’t bother me. The editing was superb, if I hadn’t seen the original many times I wouldn’t have been able to tell where the cuts were. (I didn’t notice A/V sync issues but I wasn’t paying attention to that.)
As for the narrative, yeah it sucks in chronological order. But it’s an interesting way of rewatching it. I tried watching the Easter Egg chrono version on Disc 2 of the DVD but because of the bad branching options I never got all the way through it. I’m glad Jorge took the time to make this one.
A/V Quality - 8
Editing - 10
Narrative - 7
Enjoyment - 9 (original 10)
Recommended Drink: Gin (straight)
Great idea and an interesting way of looking at the film. Not better than the original, but a nice take.
But, the video quality is terrible and the audio is slightly out of sync.
5/10 (8/10 were it not for the technical problems)
