Not sure how you can think it's an ego thing. [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
I cannot understand why these self-styled 'film-makers' don't just produce films of their own instead of attempting to tamper with the obvious very hard graft of others. As Elessar says, it's largely an ego thing, I think. Oh well, Warner will no doubt remove these 'edits' as soon as they appear on the Net.


Not sure how you can think it's an ego thing.

To spend, sometimes, hundreds of hours planning, cutting and remixing something... that only a tiny, tiny, tiny audience is ever going to see...?

That's more of an intellectual exercise to please oneself before anything else. Hardly an ego driven thing at all.

There's a reason they're called FAN edits; you typically have to me a massive fan, beyond the norm, to even think about wanting to do one.

It's disappointing how negative some of you are about the concept. You might not like it -- and that's fine; more power to you -- but to accuse people of 'ego' and other stuff, when that's clearly not the case, is out of order. To be completely honest, actually, it's a bit of a cheap shot.
