Fixing this travesty of a film is no easy feat. This edit is insurmountably superior compared to the theatrical cut - the pacing is much better, much of the kitsch is gone, and the chosen narrative is comprehensible and well defined. I particularly approve of the removal of any mentioning of ghosting (and especially the terrible monologue about fear not being real).

As I mentioned in the forum discussion, I have three major issues with the narrative, which affected my enjoyment from the edit. I felt the narrative could be made stronger by restoring most of Zoƫ Kravitz's scenes, by removing all explicit references to Earth (except the whales at the end), and by trimming improbable moments (especially the bird segment).

The visual and audio quality and editing are superb, as always.
