Brief Synopsis:
This edit incorporates all 29 deleted scenes as well as gives the viewer the option of the theatrical ending or the original extended ending.
Intention:
I'm a big fan of ADigitalMan's Titanic "The White Star Edition". However, this version was SD only and there were a few cuts and scene placements that felt... off. When the Blu-Ray of Titanic was released I decided I wanted to expand on what ADigitalMan had done but using an HD source. I reorganized a few scenes so the deleted scenes felt more organic, did a little re-coloring and added a branching feature to the end. (ADigitalMan provided two discs for the second half, depending on your version choice.)
Additional Notes:
The NZB file does not include the PAR2 files. There was an issue getting it uploaded, possibly due to its size. Instead, if you need the PAR2, they are available via the included DLC in the RAR.

A top notch edit which does exactly what it set out to do and looks great.

A/V Quality - 10 - I watched the BD-50 and it looked spectacular. Looks just like my blu-ray.
Visual Editing - 10 - No jarring cuts, all of the deleted material is integrated seamlessly.
Audio Editing - 10 - Same thing, everything was seamless, the transition cues were well done.
Narrative - 9 - This is hard to score. I certainly wouldn't tell someone who's never seen Titanic that they should watch a three and a half hour version of it. There are a lot of superfluous scenes (and a couple clunkers - like the terrible 'ice' pun as the iceberg looms in the background or the alternate ending) BUT if you love Titanic and want to see it all in one place then this is perfect. Some of the scenes I would have preferred to keep in the theatrical cut but the narrative doesn't suffer at all from them all being included. It's just really long so I'd only recommend it to diehards. But if you've downloaded this, that's probably exactly what you're looking for.
Enjoyment - 9 - This was a really enjoyable edit. My wife and I are both huge Titanic fans and we've seen all of these scenes by themselves (or in SD back in the day) but we both thoroughly enjoyed watching this version. It'll go next to the original proverbially - I'd rewatch either depending on my mood/how much time I have.

Great job, Q2.

"The More Common Type of Review"

I hadn't watched Titanic since I saw it in theaters back in 97. I had been wanting to see the new BD transfer and Q2's Extended Edition was a perfect excuse to check it out. I liked it much more this time around (I kinda hated it back then). I hadn't watched the deleted scenes by themselves and Q2 integrated them perfectly. There were only a few times I could say "Yeah that was one of them". So kudos to Q2 for maintaining the quality.

The 1080 MKV looked and sounded great! Haven't watched the BD of original Titanic so I can't compare, but this was beautiful.

Is the story better? No, it's still a bit boring and I'd much prefer to see a version of this movie closer to "A Night To Remember". But if you're a Titanic fan you'll enjoy it.

Oh and I watched the alternate ending. Wow, I'm glad Cameron didn't use that one.
