So I watched part 1 and part 2 last night, here is my take on the overall movie.

The Good:

Pacing: I feel like pacing has improve with these edits vs the original film. Less 'goofy' and 'cartoon' cuts which help shorten the movie considerably. Even though some scenes were required because without them it will mess the continuity.

Characters: The love triangle was taken out completely and cut down scenes of "Jar Jar binks" was a huge positive. Though personally I liked the dynamics of Azog which was reduced in this cut.

Plot: Followed very similar to the original cut. no comment.

Music Mix: I really hope that it would used more of the original score from LOTR but other than that it was nicely integrated with the scenes.


The Bad:

Flashback:
Some of the flashbacks drag a little too long, especially when Bilbo 'remembered' he got the stone.
When Thorin started to show his dragon sickness, it was unnecessary to show Smaug.

Overall: Solid Edit and enjoyable!
