10 Best Movie Fan Edits Of All Time

Star Wars gets a Tarantino remix.

We've all watched movies and, whether we loved them to death or found serious fault with them, felt that they could be nipped and tucked into a far more entertaining end result.

This combined with the democratisation of video editing technology over the last two decades has seen a major uptick in the number of "fan edits" released online.

These edits will typically remove egregious, embarrassing scenes, tighten up the pacing and, in extreme cases, even ambitiously attempt to restore footage removed from the final cut.

Though it's worth reiterating that fan-assembled cuts of Hollywood movies aren't strictly speaking legal - they exist in something of a grey area if you already own a copy of the film - the "remix culture" that exists today makes it rare for studios to pursue action against those re-working their films.

Sifting through the sea of bold, enterprising fan edits, these are the 10 that rise to the top - the most creative and visionary attempts to "fix" films which, while promising, are fundamentally imperfect. And on occasion, they're also just cute experiments to re-work already beloved movies.

The edits all have their quirks, no question, but if you're a fan, it's well worth seeking them out...
