  • Top 5 Edited Wolverine Fight Scenes

    Top 5 Edited Wolverine Fight Scenes

    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!

      The Top 5 American Western Standoffs

      To kick off the first post for the Edit Decision List, I thought it would be fitting to choose a topic that relies on one of the most fundamental techniques in editing film: building tension. There are many places for using this technique, but it is in its most blatant use in the Western Standoff. Therefore here is The Top 5 American Western Standoffs based on editing.

      Top 5 Edited Live Action Movie With Talking Animal

      July 17, 2009, 12:32 pm
      I just recently finished compositing some shots for a live-action Disney DVD film (soon to come) involving talking animals. This is the first time that I’ve really done anything like that, and although I wasn’t editing, I could appreciate how difficult it can be to edit a film with animal actors as I saw the shots come in. And it’s difficult regardless of if they have moving mouths or not. Animals aren’t really "acting" on their free will as humans do, so discerning which take is the best has to with a mixture of the action being performed properly (pun intended) as well as juxtaposing the action with another action to convey an accurate sense of emotion, which 95% of animals (arguably) don’t naturally exhibit.
