Prepare to see Saving Private Ryan how you never have before – one enterprising Twitter user has edited all the men out of the movie.
It’s been produced in response to a fan-edited version of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which either vastly reduced or completely edits out the presence of its female characters, and has been widely derided online after stars of the film mocked the new edit.
The new cut of Saving Private Ryan goes one further, cutting the 169 minute original film down to just 2 minutes and 20 seconds. “In response to the MRA douche who edited all the women out of
#TheLastJedi, I decided to edit all of the men out of Saving Private Ryan,” wrote @LoganJames. “Here it is in its entirety.”
Check it out below.
The ‘De-Feminised Fanedit (aka the Chauvinist Cut)’ of The Last Jedi was reportedly uploaded to the file-sharing site The Pirate Bay by Men’s Rights activists earlier this week, clocking in at just 46 minutes – nearly two hours less than the actual run time of The Last Jedi.
The edit’s description promises that the roles of female characters in The Last Jedi have either been cut entirely or majorly scaled back, with General Leia’s presence edited so she no longer “scolds, questions nor demotes” Poe Dameron.
The edit also brings about a swifter death for Captain Phasma because, as the description claims, “women are naturally weaker than men, she isn’t force-sensitive, and we know nothing about any exoskeleton in her suit”. Laura Dern’s Vice-Admiral Holdo, meanwhile, has been removed from the film entirely.
In other recent Star Wars news, one Reddit user recently claimed to have worked out which film in the canon is officially the most divisive.
