SuperFanCuts & Bootlegs…

In continuation of my last post regarding the passion and efforts of SuperFans to bring you material otherwise unseen, shown above are what I consider to be the most defining works. ‘Fan edits’ are a relatively new concept where software exists to simply re-edit a favorite movie to your taste & specifications. Due to their personal vision they are at best hit & miss and found more often than not taking up bandwidth on torrent sites. Very occasionally, however, some projects not only revolutionize and rejuvenate certain properties but can generate such enthusiasm and buzz that major studios themselves respond and capitalise on them.

No idea about the other TV Cuts aside from “Superman II.” That had to have been the source for the deleted scenes from the Donner Cut.
