This is a very solid edit of Return of the Jedi and certainly feels more streamlined than the original movie. There are a few choices that I wouldn't have made...

A masterclass in editing. Somehow Spence has reduced a six episode miniseries to feature-film length while keeping characterization and plot coherence perfectly intact. While there are flashier OWK edits out...

This is a solid extended edition. Many of the reincorporated deleted scenes worked in the movies favor, giving more pathos to the character of Dr. Curt Conners....

I was intrigued by the approach of this edit, shifting a subplot from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the first film in the series (because god knows that film didn't...

In general, I do think this edit is an improvement over the theatrical cut, but unfortunately I don't think it's enough to make this movie work. The characterization of Harry...

I found the theatrical version of The Battle of the Five Armies extremely tedious to the point of being nigh unwatchable, so I was really interested in seeing what Kerr...

While many editors try to turn the Hobbit trilogy into one or two movies, this edit makes the case that these movies can shine individually. Indeed, by trimming some of...

The current king of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith edits. It's not perfect: both Hal9000 and Kerr have executed individual moments and scenes better, but this is...
