I can only give this fanedit a perfect review since I just truly loove this version of LOTR so much more than the original cut / edit (both theatrical and EE). To me all of Kerr's 6 books are a masterpeace. Only thing distracting is that, as far as I know, there is no HD-version of it available, so when watching the Hobbit fanedit beforehand, the quality difference is noticable. Let's hope an HD version comes out someday. This will be the version I will watch from now on if I watch the LOTR. Thank you Kerr for the work you put in!

I loved these. Not to much to say about it that hasn't been said by other reviewers, but if you're a Lord of the Rings fan, check these edits out.

(Watched this a couple years and forgot to review.)

Splendid and meticulous editing, as usual. The entire cut list seems reasonable and nothing felt missing. As close to the book as it gets, with the material available. Masterful works, these book edits.

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.
