SCENES ADDED & CUT - NONE
The source for this was actually Blu-Ray. I decided to scale that down to perfect DVD RES.
It is a fan edit of sorts and then again not. I did not cut or add any scene. Instead I changed the subs to what they actually said and meant. The original sub was very typical while the actual dialogue was more menacing.
Then I reshuffled 4 main scenes.
1. In the intro I've put in the CGI end title of the movie with the movie's theme.
2. I've put the IRONMAN title at the very end when Tony says "I am Ironman"
3. I've moved the Nick Fury scene ahead to right after the title leaves.
4. I've moved the "I am Iron-man" Black Sabbath song into the end title scene.
The reasons for this edit were...
Now you don't have to fast forward or sit through the end credit to goto the Nick fury scene.
You dont have to wait through the CGI outro to see the Nick Fury scene.
You don't have to miss out on the cool CGI outro scene either.
We get a more 'proper' Intro to the movie like Superman, Spider-man and X-men do.
Proper subs that convery the actual meaning and the feelings.
Sorry I didn't make the audio 5.1... haven't learned how to encode tht yet. The size is standard 4.34 gig. Meaning you can fit this in a normal blank DVD-R/+R.
All in all this does not take anything away from the movie but With these small reshuffling I think it adds more to the movie.
You be the judge and as always...
By the way, in the monitor the picture might not look perfect but I checked it out on my 32" 100 hrz CRT TV and the 50" Full HD plasma and it looks perfectly fine.
You be the judge.
P.S. - There's also a DVDRES version of this available for the ones who want that. That source for the DVDres one is Blu-ray as well.
