I liked how this cut removed a lot of unneeded silliness and side plots. All the characters were improved. Denethor felt less insane up until he thought Faramir was dead--then it makes more sense to lose his mind to despair. Reducing the intercuts and just following each group's experience helps.

My biggest quibble with the whole series is the reworking of the Siege of Minia Tirith & Battle of Pelennor Fields. Unfortunately, putting things back into book order and working with the material available caused continuity issues with day & night. Jumping back and forth was a bit jarring, but there was only the footage available to work with.

The choice of intro music was unexpected and I liked not just re-using the same piece as would be the obvious decision.
