VISUAL EDITING: Many of the cuts (and there were MANY) went unnoticed by me, which is incredible considering how many there were. A small handful of the edits were slightly more obvious to me because I have seen the movie a dozen times, but if I hadn't I seriously doubt I would have noticed.

DIALOGUE: Almost all of works but there were a few lines that were removed that I personally really enjoyed from the original ("and now for our next trick" really breaks the intense tension, and I always liked Amelia's laugh). Just personal preference though.

MUSIC CHANGES: I did really enjoy the folk music spread throughout, giving the movie a more classic-sci-fi-1970's feel. The new soundtrack is refreshingly upbeat and I can certainly see the benefits that it provides to a movie that is very heavy and dark throughout, BUT I personally prefer the original soundtrack as it feels more like the weight of the universe crushing down, which fits narratively.

NARRATIVE: The most striking narrative improvement was to the watch scene at the end, with the removal of the fire subplot. I always felt like it distracted from the already horrifying reality of being trapped in a tesseract, and why wouldn't she be allowed to visit her old bedroom?

LOVE?: Even though it never bothered me personally, I know a lot of people always hated the idea that love or human emotions can cross the dimensions, so I think the edit works to remove this sentimentality. My only issue is the edit should have also removed Brandt touching the ghost hand of Cooper in the wormhole since that is never explained. The whole point of that is that he and Brandt are connected emotionally, but not in this edit so much. That handshake could have been cut entirely in my opinion.
----
Overall given the sheer magnitude of this edit, the enormous number of changes, the vast improvement to the ending sequence, this is great, great work. If this had the original soundtrack only it would be a 10/10 for me.

Where We’re Going is better than the original in my opinion. The most important change is the treatment given to older Tom and his refusal to leave the farm. Removing these scenes greatly ameliorates the experience. I wonder if it was originally there only to give Murph a reason to go back to the farm?
The music added is also interesting. It’s folk, it’s grounded, it reminds us of the fields and the earth. I wish it didn’t replace the sound of rain and thunder in Cooper’s ‘‘iPod’’ though. That one moment in the original movie made me feel insignificant and alone. I was riveted to my seat and impressed by the imagery of Saturn overlaid with the background noise of Earth’s weather. Where we’re going uses music instead and misses to make me feel something other than nostalgia.
Other audio cuts have gotten me out of the movie for a second and both are similar but not really bad. We can hear Professor Brand and Murph talking, in two different scenes, when their lips aren’t moving. In the case of Brand I know it’s a creative choice, in Murph’s case I guess it was just a hard cut to make. And that’s it, only these minor nit picks for the entire movie.
I really like the credits at the beginning, simple but efficient. I like the various cuts made to dialogue, they all feel relevant to me. And I think they achieve the goal of getting better pacing throughout the movie.
I will rewatch Interstellar and when I do, I’ll be watching Futon’s edit for sure!

This edit is flawless, it is very well done. So well done that I could not tell where the changes were made. Great work!

I love the original film, but I do love this version even more

So many "small" edits to make this a focused story, now it never leaves the main themes.
I've never noticed the many small annoyances (that are kinda frequent on Christopher Nolan's films, despite his genious) that make the film a little less enjoyable. All of them are gone here, and what an experience it is now!

Never going back to the original, this is it for me!
Thanks
