Maze Runner
Synopsis: "A teenager arrives in a glade at the center of a giant labyrinth. Like the other youths dumped there before him, he has no memory of his previous life."

Edit summary: This cuts the series into one film. Some action sequences are removed to make the action seem like less of a filler quota and focus more on the events that actually matter. Much of the first film plot is left intact but heavily trimmed, the second and third films are severely cut to make the narrative exciting but cohesive, with a flow that seems more naturally written and less cliche.
No Time To Die
Synopsis: "James Bond is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service. However, his peace is short-lived as his old CIA friend, Felix Leiter, shows up and asks for help."

Edit summary: Cut most of the movie and turned the one good act into a short film.
Squid Game
Synopsis: "Hundreds of cash-strapped contestants accept an invitation to compete in children's games for a tempting prize, but the stakes are deadly."

Edit summary: Heavily trimmed the slow start to the essentials, reduced the nauseating flashing room a bit, trimmed a bunch of sections to help the pacing, and kept but heavily streamlined the cop storyline. The ending is also significantly changed, removing the twist and the open ending for a sequel season to make it a self-contained single-season show.
Las Vegas
Synopsis: "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but for the detectives who keep so-called sinners from preying on the innocent at Sin City's posh Montecito Resort & Casino, the secrets and lies are as insidious as any other poison. It's up to ex-CIA agent Big Ed Deline (James Caan) and his second in command, Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel), to rein in the cheaters and thieves -- if they can -- in this exciting first season of the NBC series."

Edit summary: The core episodes of the series with a cohesive narrative and the most interesting plots.
Black Mirror
Synopsis: "Black Mirror is three stand alone dramas that tap into the collective unease about our modern world. They are sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales with a techno-paranoia bent. 'The National Anthem' looks at how life is much harder for the rich and powerful now that information is disseminated so quickly; '15 Million Merits' is satire on our insatiable thirst for distraction; 'In Memoriam' is an alternate reality where everyone has access to a system which records everything they do, see or hear."

Edit summary: Selected episodes that are the best sci-fi of this anthology series.
Synopsis: "An easily spooked guy, Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), joins forces with wild man Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) to fight for survival in a world virtually taken over by freakish zombies. As they destroy scores of the undead, they meet up with two other survivors, Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) and Wichita (Emma Stone), and journey to a supposedly safe abandoned amusement park. Ruben Fleischer directs this horror romp."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: Cut Bill Murray, the lookalikes storyline in the second film, and some of the slapstick humor.
The Protege
The Protege (2021)
Synopsis: "Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody, Anna is the world's most skilled contract killer. However, when Moody is brutally killed, she vows revenge for the man who taught her everything she knows."
No Edit Necessary
St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold
Synopsis: "When the troublemaking girls of St. Trinian's discover that their headmistress Miss Fritton (Rupert Everett) is related to an infamous pirate, they square off against the evil Pomfrey (David Tennant) and his menacing group of woman haters on a hunt for buried treasure. Colin Firth returns as stuffed-shirt education minister Geoffrey Thwaites. Gemma Arterton and Russell Brand also star in this adaptation of the work of cartoonist Ronald Searle."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: This film isn't nearly as good as the original, most of the irreverence and character flavor has been gutted by the politically correct bent of the sequel.

Cut the majority of the cross-dressing role Rupert Everett plays as the headmistress, as well as the blatant "women vs misogynistic cult" scenes - resulting in plot that's more National Treasure/"Fighting The Man" rather than an overt gender war.
St. Trinian's
Synopsis: "When a fanatical education minister (Colin Firth) threatens to close St. Trinian's for its dreadful reputation and potential financial crash, the student body -- made up of a gaggle of devilish girls -- plans a lucrative heist worthy of a million detentions. With a rowdy headmistress (Rupert Everett) and a clumsy faculty, swiping Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" turns into a riotous good time. Russell Brand and Mischa Barton co-star."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: Cut the majority of the cross-dressing role Rupert Everett plays as the headmistress, focusing on the girls and the adventure rather than his constant "comedy" interruptions.
Synopsis: "On the way to meet a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam (Josh Radnor) encounters 6-year-old Rasheen (Michael Algieri) alone on the subway. While struggling to decide whether to send him back to foster care, Sam looks after Rasheen and learns a few important life lessons. Meanwhile, Sam's friends deal with various romantic tribulations. Radnor wrote and directed this coming-of-age comedy, which won the Best Drama Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: Heavily trimmed into more of a short film that focuses on Sam, Rasheen, and Mississippi, disposing of the other side stories.
The Hunger Games
Synopsis: "In a dystopian future ruled by a totalitarian regime, resourceful Katniss and her partner Peeta represent their district in the lethal Hunger Games, a televised survival competition in which teenage contestants hunt each other to the death."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: The first edit still has a lot of spastic 2-second cuts back and forth that can't be removed if you want any action sequences from the 2012 film. But I did try to clean them up a little bit, as well as fixing key scenes like the bakery and Rue to better reflect the impact from the book rather than the disposable hyperactivity of the movie.

All four movies have been combined into two longer films and slimmed down a little bit, fixing the rather ponderous pace the original movies had at times.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Synopsis: "After his TV star girlfriend, Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), breaks his heart, Peter (Jason Segel) wants nothing more than to enjoy his vacation in Hawaii. But there are two big problems: No. 1, Sarah's vacationing at the same resort; No. 2, she's bringing her new beau. Mila Kunis, Paul Rudd and Bill Hader also star in this madcap relationship comedy from hit producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad)."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: Cut a lot of the loud or cringey slapstick comedy bits and transformed it into more of a subtle romantic comedy.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Synopsis: "A sweet boy from a poor family dreams of finding one of five golden tickets hidden inside chocolate bar wrappers which will admit him to the eccentric and reclusive Willy Wonka's magical factory."

Edit summary: Cut the ticket finding to be a bit shorter/cleaner, removed some musical interludes that interrupt the flow, and cut out a few goofy or creepy bits that weren't important.
Up In The Air
Synopsis: "Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) racks up miles flying around the country firing employees on behalf of companies. But he faces losing the job he savors to recent college grad Natalie Keener (Anna Kendrick) -- and losing the ability to escape emotional ties to anything. A connection he builds with Alex Goran (Vera Farmiga), however, might change his outlook on the future. Golden Globe winner Jason Reitman's smart comedy also stars Jason Bateman."
(Synopsis compliments of Netflix)

Edit summary: Cut the majority of the Vera Farmiga scenes and disposed of the cliche 'everyone needs love' plot point they added to keep George Clooney's character more mainstream-audience friendly.
Knocked Up
Synopsis: "Rising journalist Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) hits a serious bump in the road after a one-night stand with irresponsible slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) results in pregnancy."

Edit summary: Cut a lot of teen humor and some of the more stereotypical tropes to make a more heart-felt story.
