  • Top 5 Edited Wolverine Fight Scenes

    Top 5 Edited Wolverine Fight Scenes

    June 30, 2010, 8:33 pm
    30 June 2010 <br>

    I’ve always loved comic books, and X Men was a definite favourite. When the movies came out, I was also excited. Being the fan that I am, I hoped that they would stick to the original stories (they strayed a bit) but still they were fun and I enjoyed them. In any case, I felt like watching X Men this weekend and because Wolverine is my favourite character, you’re going to be subjected to my whims once again.

    5. X Men Origins: Wolverine, Wolverine Vs. Wade and Victor (sort of)
    This is one of the better fights in not only the movie, but in the whole series. I mean this purely in a choreography sense, because the editing is just too fast to get a good handle on it. The montage is ok for the most part, but when the cuts are so fast that we can barely see what’s going on, it turns into subliminal messages more than anything else!

    4. X3: The Last Stand, Wolverine Vs. Army in the Woods
    This one has incredibly smooth pacing and cutting, and isn’t so fast that you feel like your eyes have to catch up with you. Not to mention that yes, it’s also a cool fight. Don’t you wish you could grow an unending supply of gnarly bone-spikes from your forearms to shoot at people?

    3. X Men, Wolverine Vs. Wolverine (er... Mystique)
    I could go on about how much I love scenes that involve the same actor fighting his/her self (ooh, I sense a future post topic) but I’ll save that for later. Anyway, this particular scene is not only cheeky and fun but nicely edited. The frame matching is ok, but the pacing is great and they really pulled off two Wolverines very well.

    2. X3: The Last Stand, Wolverine Vs. Nails
    These cuts were very fast, but fortunately not so fast that we couldn’t see what was happening (I see a quick cut trend here...). This goes higher up on the list, however, because the montage is right on. (I’m sure you’re now sick of me saying this) you can draw a clear line on the screen as to where the eyes are led, and it’s very smooth.

    1. X Men Origins: Wolverine, Chopper Escape
    Not only is this scene just plain cool, but they got the continuity perfect and the montage is more than decent. Only Wolverine can take out a bunch of army trucks and a chopper!

      As an interesting note, it was conveniently blocked by FOX just as the internet is on blackout strike today in solidarity against SOPA. American friends, please be aware that if SOPA passes, videos like this where I attempt to teach about film editing in a fun way will not be available anymore, even if I am in compliance with the Fair Use clause— in fact, I could be shut down, fined, and/or jailed without due process. If you like the internet and the ability to find information freely and easily, please educate yourself about this bill, and do whatever you can to stop it from passing!

      I know I've covered this one in the past, but with the new video format I feel like I can really do some of previous written blogs justice. This one especially!

      Top 5 edited scenes in Metropolis

      Metropolis is one of the most influential science fiction films of all time, and it's obvious that the editing has a lot to do with it. The expressive nature of the acting is superbly juxtaposed with epically framed shots in such a way that story isn't only easy to follow, but really fun to watch!
