A Good Year
Synopsis: "A British investment broker inherits his uncle's chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. He discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he tries to renovate the estate to be sold."

Edit summary: Trim a few of the flashbacks and take out other scenes that remove pacing or interrupt the feel-good vibe of the film to shorten and smooth out the experience.
Warm Bodies
Synopsis: "After a highly unusual zombie saves a still-living girl from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion events that might transform the entire lifeless world."

Edit summary: Fix a couple continuity errors, and strip out a couple corny action sequences and stereotypical tropes.

Even though the edit is small in terms of minutes cut, it does make a huge difference to the vibe and flow of the film. Cutting the shoehorned action unfortunately removes most of the tension, and rearranging the scenes in a more logical way makes it seem like a much simpler story since it isn't being interrupted.

I like the unique story, but it does feel a bit too quick and light in places that should matter - like the end of three days, and the final bonies fight. They should have beefed up those moments rather than shoehorning in the unnecessary moments cut by this edit.
Mile 22
Mile 22 (2018)
Synopsis: "CIA operative James Silva leads a small but lethal paramilitary team on an urgent and dangerous mission. They must transport a foreign intelligence asset from an American embassy in Southeast Asia to an airfield for extraction -- a distance of 22 miles. Silva and the soldiers soon find themselves in a race against time as the city's military, police and street gangs close in to reclaim the asset."
No Edit Necessary
Wildlike
Synopsis: "After conditions in her new home become unbearable, a teenage girl runs away and befriends an older man preparing for a hike through the Alaskan wilderness."

Edit summary: Trimmed the start to be less sympathetic to the uncle, as well as giving the story a quicker start. A few other trims to focus the story more on the relationship between Mackenzie and Bart.
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Synopsis: "When the 243-year-old Mr. Magorium (Dustin Hoffman) discovers his health is failing, he turns over his fantastical toy store to his manager, Molly Mahoney (Natalie Portman), a talented pianist and aspiring composer who isn't sure she's ready to take the reins. Since the store reflects the energy of those who run it, Molly must work to lift her spirits and help the shop recapture its magic. Jason Bateman co-stars."

Edit summary: Removed all the "chapter" interruptions that take you out of the story, and all associated voiceovers, and reduced the role of the bookbuilder and the lonely kid.
Luther
Synopsis: "Luther is a brilliant but emotionally impulsive detective who is tormented by the dark side of humanity while hunting down murderers. He must grapple with the intensity of both his job and his personal life as the two become intertwined."

Edit summary: Follows the Luther and Alice plot arc that's the heart of the series, cuts off the later seasons that are more standard police procedural.
Hunter Killer
Hunter Killer (2018)
Synopsis: "An untested American submarine captain teams up with U.S. Navy Seals to rescue the Russian president, who has been kidnapped by a rogue general."
No Edit Necessary
Don't Look Deeper
Synopsis: "A high school student in central California sets off an unexpected series of events when she begins to doubt if she's human."

Edit summary: Cut the lesbian and transgender plots and consolidate all the episodes.

Ver6: Significantly reworked ending to be less corny, and a few other quality tweaks like cropping credits out of all scenes
Jupiter's Legacy
Synopsis: "The first generation of superheroes has kept the world safe for nearly a century. Now their children must live up to their legacy in an epic drama that spans decades and navigates the dynamics of family, power and loyalty."

Edit summary: The original series cuts between past and present, the past story showing how the parents got their power, and the present showing them interacting with their kids and a younger generation of superheroes. These have completely different vibes, so this edit splits the past and present into two separate episodes with chronological storylines, with small trims for quality, to remove plot holes, and to make some of the younger characters less annoying and bratty.
James Bond
Synopsis: "After receiving a license to kill, British Secret Service agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) heads to Madagascar, where he uncovers a link to Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), a man who finances terrorist organizations. Learning that Le Chiffre plans to raise money in a high-stakes poker game, MI6 sends Bond to play against him, gambling that their newest "00" operative will topple the man's organization."

Edit summary: This heavily cuts the Daniel Craig films together into a single movie with a Spectre-focused plot arc. It throws most of No Time To Die in the trash, there's a separate edit that uses the good parts of that film. It also disposes of all the Bond girls except for Vesper Lynd, Severine, and Madeleine to streamline the film for the shorter time and fit the plot arc. Action sequences were pared down as well, disposing of the airport terrorist, almost all of QOS, Moneypenny sniper scene and the following bond injury drama, Mexico city, Hoffler Klinik chase, and the C intelligence network drama.

This keeps a decent balance of action and drama without feeling like there's a quota of action sequences, and without bloating the runtime with drama that doesn't fit the Spectre arc. Vesper, Mr White, and Blofeld storylines are more coherent since they're no longer fragmented across multiple films with hours of unrelated filler in between.
King Arthur
Synopsis: "King Arthur (Clive Owen) and the Knights of the Round Table are struggling to retain power amid a shaky political landscape in Antoine Fuqua's thrilling take on the myth of Camelot, which is steeped in gritty realism and the politics of its time. As the Roman Empire falls, everyone is trying to wrest control, but time is marching toward the Dark Ages. Stephen Dillane and Keira Knightley co-star as Merlin and Guinevere, respectively."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Small cuts to reduce the emphasis on the tie-in with the Arthurian mythos, this story doesn't really have any relation and is better without that baggage. Heavy cuts of the dialogue, especially Keira Knightley, making the film a more quiet epic.
The Holiday
Synopsis: "Dumped and depressed, English rose Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky in love Californian Amanda for a much-needed break."

Edit summary: Cut out most of Cameron Diaz's plot since it's more of a cliche romance, and tightened up Kate Winslet's scenes slightly for more of a friendly drama than a typical romcom.
Chalet Girl
Synopsis: "Former skateboard champion Kim takes a job working at an exclusive ski resort to support her Dad."

Edit summary: Trimmed out the cliche romance plot in the third act to leave more of a feel-good sporty film. Not everything needs a romance plot and it felt forced in this one.
In the Land of Women
Synopsis: "Leaving the pain of a high-profile breakup with a famous actress behind him in Los Angeles, disillusioned writer Carter Webb (Adam Brody) heads to the Michigan home of his ailing grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) with plans to nurse her back to health. But he doesn't count on assistance from a family of women (including Meg Ryan and Kristen Stewart) living across the street, who help him heal by drawing him into their lovely world."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Trimmed this slice of life story a little to focus more on the positive relationships and the way people support each other, removing a few negative or painful scenes that felt like they interrupted the vibe of the rest of the film.
Split
Synopsis: "Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities. They must try to escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th."

Edit summary: This recuts the film to be more of a fluid horror film, removing a bunch of the early psychologist interviews with James McAvoy and also trimming out part of Anya Taylor-Joy's backstory. A few of the hunting backstory scenes are left in to add more depth for her character and tension in the back half of the film, and also to add a few bits of lightness to offset the dark atmosphere.
