This is a really good edit of the Hobbit. Pacing is much better, annoying stuff gone. Into my eye and ear, the cuts were technically flawless.

The new soundtack is also good, and makes the movie unique. I needed a while to get used to it but it works! However in Thorin's charge against Azog in the end the music was just not as powerful as in the original movie... This scene with the original music always got me goosebumps, with this new music it came close, but did not quite do it.

Also I would have liked to see a little more action in the goblin town. I think the dwarves fight/chase was just cut too short (though the way Goblin King was handled was very good). In contrast - Bilbo's confrontation with Gollum felt a little too long to have it all in one scene.

Aside these things, very good job! Looking forward to the edits of the next two parts.
