The only version of the story I have seen as of this point in time, not exactly the sort of thing I normally enjoy (am not a particular QT fan) but works very well, though I can't help but wince at the notorious scene of unintended antique destruction!

Looks and sounds great, the 65 mm source still appreciable in the short-format with no noticeable edits, will be interesting to see how the full-length versions (Ex "Q.T.V.O" and "Roadshow" cuts) play out. Thanks Wraith for inviting me to quality-control preview!

Great edit!

First off, loved the opening titles and how they came in after the opening scene of the film - really cool!

The film is episodic in its natural form with chapters but I felt like the appropriate amount of time was given to each chapter - hats off to @Wraith as it can't have been easy to do that but I felt like it was really well balanced.

As with most of Tarantino's films tension gradually cranks up throughout the film and I didn't feel this was compromised at all with the shorter running time. Again not easy to achieved but done brilliantly.

Really enjoyed watching it! The beauty is (as with all of these edits, I guess) that I'll get to watch the story more regularly as they're in 1 hour chunks. I'm pumped to view the edits of the other films in the series now!

Great job, @Wraith!

This was a great feat of editing. The original is pretty long and the 1h05 version of it still feels pretty complete. Of course character development suffers a bit but that is the price to pay for cutting so much dialogue and expositions. My enjoyment was lessen by that and by the fact that the narrative was inevitably changed. I missed the evolution and tension we usually get from a close quarter like hateful8, but it's all because of the TTT format, not the editing. I would have removed the entire Lincoln letter 'subplot', I don't feel it was necessary or as good. In fact, I think all the end credit scenes where not necessary. We understood what happened.
Overall, it was a good TTT episode, made from one of the best Tarantino movie imo. The bar was set pretty high, and Wraith met the expectations! Good job! I'll have to watch your other versions of this movie now!

Absolutely gory glorious! An incredible distillation of Tarantino's 3 hour epic down to one hour plus change!
A truly amazing narrative achievement. I am completely jazzed to check out the other installments in the very cool fan editors collaboration project.

Whoever designed the Tarantino Tales opening titles, my hat off to you! Great work!
And using Pat Williams' The Streets of San Francisco theme was a truly inspired choice.
