I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
Rating criteria: image quality, sound quality, 3x improvement, overall.

This is an absolutely excellent version of Dawn of the Dead, in fact I think it’s vastly improved over the Cannes cut. All the footage has been blended in with the original. It’s obvious one or two times when there’s something added, because the colour shifts, and this is especially noticeable during the opening sequence with repeating titles, but honestly it doesn’t matter – it’s not at all distracting from the film itself.
Technical: 4 out of 5

Fantastic job. If you loved this movie for as long as I have, seeing it in a whole new light is wonderful, and inspiring. In fact re-locating this version recently, lead me to this forum, and lead me to try my hand at re-editing myself. Great job, great picture, great movie!!
