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!

@Wraith, I still believe you had the hardest job of all the editors. I've seen this movie quite a few time so I understand how hard the cuts must have been to get it into 65 mins. The edit itself is clean, and cutting ~2 hours of dialogue, exposition, character development, and more means you had a very very hard job,

-- The first half is fast-paced and tight, and we’re all introduced and eating stew by 28 min instead of 80 mins. VERY impressively done, at the expense of some mild character development.
-- I had fun looking for cut and moved lines of dialogue, overlapping into scenes where they didn’t belong.
-- Warren and Chris actually become different characters in the edit. It's a fun change and I liked it! (even though their friendship in the original was my favorite part haha)
-- Now that I've seen your cut 3.5 times, it's very impressive how many layers upon layers of overlap you have in these scenes! Dialogue moved to whole other areas, other dialogue shifted to the background of another conversation (like Bob hammering the door), the difficult behind editing around Silent Night without breaking the pace of the music.

EDIT: Having chatted with Wraith about it and seeing the direction they were taking the edit, I see how they got there. I was expecting a condensed version of the original, but Wraith was changing the story too. I retracted my issue with the Lincoln letter, given that Wraith specifically showed Chris crumple it up, so it did have a use to the story. Thank you for explaining it Wraith and being a good sport about taking some criticisms, and I love that you implemented some of the changes we talked about (and that you had already considered them before I even mentioned them!)
