Synopsis:
Would Spaceballs be even funnier with some of the weaker moments removed... AND the entire score replaced from David Lynch's Dune? I think so!
Intention:
The primary idea was to see how a silly comedy such as Spaceballs would feel if the entire soundtrack was replaced with more serious one. Would it be even funnier? In the case of Spaceballs, I have found this to be the case. Also, as I started working on the project I found how lacking the original film was in the music department. What was there was good, but there were many, many scenes that were simply lacking that musical touch.
Other Sources:
The commercial Blu-ray.
Release Information:
Digital
Editing Details:
If it wasn't what I felt to be funny, or got in the way of pacing, I removed it.
Cuts and Additions:
There are a few cuts or trims here and there, as well as the removal of some small scenes.

The music has been entirely replaced with David Lynch's Dune.

Ok, my best friend is OBSESSED with this movie. I mean, quotes it daily. She's in love with every joke.

Was she happy with this edit? Not a ton, but I sure as hell was.

Gone is the cringey humor when it goes too far...It's an actual silly movie now, without the stuff that felt added.

100% would recommend.

The main goal of this edit was pretty much achieved! The new score adds a lot to the experience. It departs from the original soundtrack, which was closer to John William’s work, and brings a new perspective to Spaceball. I liked it. But there’s a lot of it in this edit and maybe a bit too much? I feel like I heard 1984 Dune’s Main Theme over and over. Or maybe there are variations on the same theme, I don’t remember Dune’s soundtrack enough to know for sure. But anyway, music seems always on…
On the side of the editing of the movie, I don’t miss anything that was cut. It all flows well and some of the goofier stuff was removed. 8 years-old-me would have been sad, but present-day-me thinks it’s a good thing. Again this all makes this comedy a bit more serious but satisfyingly less goofy.
The aspect ratio was changed from 1.85:1 to 2.35:1 by cropping a lot from the bottom of the image. I generally like this trend of giving a more cinematic look, but in this case it feels too extreme. There was no reframing done to the image, leaving some visual elements partially chopped up and a bit annoying from time to time.
I mostly enjoyed watching this edit but it won’t replace the original. I recommend it only if you love 1984 Dune’s OST and hated the scene when President Skroob got his head teleported backwards…
