TMBTM has managed to do a difficult thing: rescore a movie. The lyrics by Within Temptation often match the on-screen action/emotions surprisingly well. I can appreciate the amount of work it took to lay down the new score, but the new music itself didn't work for me, simply because I've never been partial to operatic metal unless it's by Spinal Tap. I would have preferred to listen to an atmospheric soundtrack with little or no singing, or maybe even some loungey death metal or Bollywood booty shakers, but, hey—if you, my fellow viewer, groove to this particular band or style of music, then this edit just might float your supernatural boat.

I found both theatrical releases a bit goofy and unintentionally so, but TMBTM did an admirable job of paring them down, removing some of the goofier elements (e.g., Kraven's infantile brooding—you'd think a long-lived vampire might sport a tad more equanimity), and combining them chronologically to create something more epic and definitely more watchable, even if the second half feels a bit disjointed. But that's the fault of the originals, as Movie #1 had the hotter chick, but Movie #3 the more coherent story.

This is a hard one for me. The editing is perfect and overall the story is much improved. But man did I not have a fun time watching this one. Sorry Mask.

Well I watched your edited version and I liked the editing of the movie. However, it is just my opionion the music selection on times was just, plain annoying. There could have been much better selection of music. I am niot knocking your immense body of work or how hard you worked on this but music wasnt just my taste. It detracted the movie for my enjoyment to its fullest. Although I did enjoy the story as it unfolded to your editing.
