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."

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.
Sweetbitter
Synopsis: "A new life awaits 22-year-old Tess when she arrives friendless in New York City and lacking any specific ambitions beyond finding a job. Her charm and observational nature lead to an invitation to train at one of the city's best restaurants."

Edit summary: Removes most/all the romance side-plots, and most of the side plots that revolve around single characters outside the restaurant. This isn't a very structured overarching plot - it's just a good vibes slice of life story about a girl working her way up at a restaurant.
Revenge
Synopsis: "The Alexandre Dumas novel The Count of Monte Cristo inspires this modern-day drama about a lovely young woman who moves to the Hamptons and charms the pants off her new neighbors -- while plotting their downfall for sins committed against her family."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: This slims down the series to make it more about revenge - removing some of the petty squabbles that dominate the middle of the series. It also removes any resurrection of characters - people who die stay dead, and it also rewrites the ending to fit with the original plot. Additionally, a bunch of unnecessary side characters are removed (Patrick, Emily and Jack's mothers, The Initiative people), making the overall plot much more grounded and believable.
Doctor Who
Synopsis: "An eccentric yet compassionate extraterrestrial Time Lord zips through time and space to defend the earth, and solve problems across the universe - traveling via the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which is his old and occasionally unreliable spaceship that resembles a blue police phone box"

Edit summary: This focuses on the Matt Smith version of Doctor Who, turning several seasons of the show into a self-contained mini-series that covers his entire life. Various trims for continuity and quality, as well as a bit of rearranging episodes to make it a cohesive narrative.

Please note, the episodes listed for this edit are named as well, since the episode numbers used vary from source to source depending on if the special episodes are counted separately or not. Two episodes (Cold War, The Rings of Akhaten) are basically untouched besides removing the "next episode" previews, but projects are provided anyway since they're not in the original season order.
The Batman
Synopsis: "When the Riddler, a sadistic serial killer, begins murdering key political figures in Gotham, Batman is forced to investigate the city's hidden corruption and question his family's involvement."

Edit summary: This is a heavy re-work of The Batman - removing some of the retcons and combining it with Batman Begins to treat it as a prequel to the Christian Bale films rather than a series reboot. All unmasked face-shots of Robert Pattinson are stripped out and the character is re-cut as the classic playboy archetype rather than the awkward gaunt pale recluse that Pattinson plays.

The new catwoman is stripped out entirely, and the new Jim Gordon is turned into a nameless policeman, keeping the Batman Begins version as The Jim Gordon. The Batman version of Falcone is kept, treating the Batman Begins version as a nameless gangster. Parts of Batman Begins are cut out, rearranged, or recut as well to make the stories to flow together as seamlessly as possible. A few seconds of Dark Knight Rises are used as filler too.
Riviera
Synopsis: "A drama set in the glamorous southeast of France. An extremely wealthy banker and his wife, Georgina, lead a luxurious lifestyle. But Georgina's world is turned upside down when he's killed and she begins to discover the details of his secret life."

Edit summary: Cut a few unsatisfying red herrings and trimmed out a bunch of drama with the side characters to give it a smooth plot arc with less manufactured drama and a chill vibe. Dropped the last season and part of the second season to rework the ending, and rescaled the second season to match the aspect ratio of the first season.
Severance
Synopsis: "Mark leads a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided between their work and personal lives"

Edit summary: Removed most of the scenes spent out of the office that interrupted the pace and tone of the work segments. This also made the tone more suspenseful and less depressing overall, the "real life" segments have a tendency to be a bit morose. Also streamlined the office to keep the focus on Mark and Helly, and reduce the presence of Irving and many of the management staff characters. The new plot arc requires a lot less suspension of disbelief since many of the "mysterious" crazy side plots are removed in favor of a mysterious tone rather than manufactured mysteries.
Plus One
Synopsis: "Longtime friends Ben and Alice agree to be each other's plus one at every wedding they're invited to during a busy summer of wedding fever."

Edit summary: Cut a couple small scenes with his dad that lightly set up the plot but interrupt the pace, and the theme of the movie happening at weddings.
The Baker and the Beauty
Synopsis: "Daniel Garcia is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do, until his life changes unexpectedly on a wild Miami night with a chance encounter with a superstar model at a fancy restaurant."

Edit summary: Culled out a lot of the side plots to put more focus on the main characters' relationship rather than trying to give equal time to the rest of the family. Also some careful trims to make a couple of the side characters more likeable rather than annoying.
Battleship
Synopsis: "When a confrontation with alien invaders knocks out the Navy's main fleet, American and Japanese forces must work together to find a way to save the planet."

Edit summary: Made the main character a bit less of a screw-up, trimmed out some scenes that slowed down the plot but didn't totally remove the characters backstory, and put more focus on the boat battles - de-hollywoodifying it a bit by removing a lot of the "exciting" close up alien combat and flashy cgi.
The Thomas Crown Affair
Synopsis: "This 1999 remake (the 1968 version starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway) showcases debonair Pierce Brosnan as a multibillionaire art connoisseur who, for kicks, would rather steal art objects than buy them. Insurance company troubleshooter Rene Russo stalks him -- all the way to his bedroom! Brosnan and Russo's chemistry is incendiary in this snappy mix of love and larceny."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)


Edit summary: Removed some gratuitous nudity and sex scenes that interrupt the playful tone of the film.

Ver4: This version recuts the transitions to be a little cleaner
Polar
Polar (2019)
 
Synopsis: "The world's top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser, is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head-to-head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced."

Edit summary: Small trims to remove Mr Blut's lotion scenes, and a bit of his corny dialogue
You're the Worst
Synopsis: ""You're the Worst" centers on two toxic, self-destructive people in a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre."

Edit summary: This edit strips out most of the side character scenes, along with their silly comedy, making a dark comedy even darker. It keeps a bit of the sarcastic and absurd humor, and has some lighthearted moments as well, but is ultimately much less of a comedy and more of a dark drama with comedic moments at times. It takes the essence of what makes the original great and condenses it into a real gut punch without the hollywood sugar.
Lord of the Rings
Synopsis: "A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron."

Edit summary: This turns the LOTR series into a 5 episode mini-series, using parts of the Hobbit series as backstory. It's heavily cut, removing Gollum, the mad kings, and some other side plots, focusing on the parallel journeys of the party trying to defeat Sauron.

It maintains the epic pace of the adventure, while trimming enough content that the slower than normal speed of the narrative doesn't seem to drag, especially when repackaged into more digestible hour segments at natural stopping points in story.
