I saw Star Trek: Into Darkness a few times when it first came out. It was a movie I really enjoyed upon the first viewing but thought less of on each subsequent viewing and haven't had a desire to return to since, until I was able to grab TM2YC's edit that is.
The one word I would use to describe this edit is "seamless". The tight, invisible editing that TM2YC has employed emphasizes the movies strengths while downplaying the moments that felt silly or forced in the original, all while not drawing attention to itself. Certain elements endemic to the plot (Khan's magic blood etc.) can't be fixed but they don't feel as unforgivable because the movie is tighter and the characters more likable on the whole. The movie now has the energy and charisma that propelled the 2009 film that preceded it. Overall I highly recommend this edit to anyone inclined to give this movie another chance.
