Foreword: I haven't seen the original in sometime, which I prefer for watching edits and I also didn't review the changes (log) ahead of watching, which I also prefer. I looked at the edit list back when I downloaded the edit, but I like to not know what I'm walking into; I don't watch an edit for a few months or more after downloading it.
Additional Note: I have seen a few other FanEdits recently.

What I liked: You kept the feeling of the original but made it less boring. Your edits felt seamless.

What I didn't: Not much, but it didn't add a ton for me, but I feel you could watch this edit never seeing the original and talk to other people about the movie still.

Overall: If you hate 2001, then maybe check this out, but if you've never seen it or want to re-watch it I would recommend checking this edit out. This edit sits alongside the original very well. I think you still leave the movie with, if not the same, a similar feeling as the original. Well done.

Extra: Keep up the good work! Maybe next time you re-encode/work on this you can use H265 for some added compression, just FYI.

I highly highly doubt Soderbergh will see this comment.

You're most likely correct, but still my advice :)
