This edit is astounding in that it collapsed so much complicated narrative into a less than 3 hour film. I'm shocked that it even worked, and even more impressed that it worked as well as it did.

Looked good on my 4k TV, I noticed a couple of pixelated spots which may or may not have been Plex related, so YMMV. Sounded good on my surround sound as well.

There are some choices made as far as what to cut, when to cut that I personally don't agree with, but none of it is done poorly. A lot of it will come down to your taste, and what you enjoy about the show.

My biggest grip is the new music. It just doesn't fit to me, especially given that the show has so much fantastic music. I'd honestly put the Game of Thrones score up there on par with Howard Shore's LOTR work. The music is also part of the personality of the show, just like Star Wars' music is part of what makes it so great. I'm a little puzzled by the decision to use different music, as it seems like it would be a lot of work to replace the music of the entire edit. Again, a personal opinion, so can't fault you for it.

Overall this is a truly impressive edit, and great for those that want to "watch" the season without devoting 10 hours to it. I'd be curious to see how it plays to someone that's never seen the show before.

Wow! Now I can see what people go on about without having to spend ten hours per season on it. Great job with the editing, it was all seamless. Its the perfect edit for those of us who dont want to spend the time watching the tv show.

It will be difficult to say anything that hasn't been said about this amazing edit.

Blown away!

I'm at this forum because of this edit and my quest to find another.

The idea and concept of this. How does one determine what needs to be cut to end up at an appropriate length that matches up to the LOTR score that was intended?

The title card. The beginning. Do you dream that up? How do you decide what should be included? Who voiced it over?

Incredible edit from beginning to end. I barely missed anything from the story arc. This is exactly how you trim almost 3/4 of the fluff from a series and make it into an exciting fast paced movie. I only regret that perfection takes time because there are six more seasons for Andreas to edit.

A true achievement to trim 10-ish hours down to a perfectly reasonable 2.5 hour-movie. I certainly didn't miss anything, but I did have to recollect a few times to remind we of what happens "in between" the cuts. No biggie unless you dive in to this without having seen the entire first season.

The audio and video editing is flawless and the LotR-music worked better than I thought, to be honest. Some of the musical cues do remind me too much of LotR, though, and did bring me out of it momentarily. My big issue with this edit is the letterboxing. Does it give a more cinematic feel? Sure. Is the framing thrown out the window? Mostly. It becomes evident that this is a fan edit (an otherwise stellar fan edit) the moment the framing feels off in a scene. A hair too much there, a foot there; it is noticeable throughout that the framing was not intended for 2.35:1 (or what the result here is).

Other than that I would certainly recommend this edit to anyone, really. Maybe one should be familiar with the first season in order to pick up some of the missing parts. Bottom line: A great edit in every way and an interesting concept, what with using LotR-music and all.
