L8wrtr has done a tremendous job streamlining The Hobbit, a series I felt way too bloated and unnecessarily long. Gone are many of my the grievances. I am torn, however, because while this version is vastly superior to the original, I still feel some scenes played out too fast while others felt they could be trimmed. While not a perfect film, this version is thoroughly enjoyable. A/V quality is what I would expect from a BR source, and while I saw no noticeable video edits I did pick up on a few audio cues that seemed to fade abruptly. This didn't lessen my enjoyment though.

I was a huge fan of Jackson's LotR trilogy, and, like a lot of people, was really disappointed with the confusing mess that was the Hobbit trilogy. I've watched several fanedits, and this is the best I've seen. I thought that the path Maple Films took, following the book as closely as possible, would have lead to the best outcome, but there were still problems, and the film felt a little empty after disposing of so many plotlines. I really enjoyed the Spence Edit, but it left out the Eagles and Beorn.

This edit is the best I've come across so far. It makes the best out of the source material without trying to artificially constrain it to Tolkien's original work. The use of Tauriel is absolutely fantastic. The audio and visual quality is superb. I now have a way of watching The Hobbit that doesn't make me actively question my life decisions. L8WRTR does it again.
