I love this edit so much. The way that Wraith had combined the original trilogy was great. The story now focuses on both Jean Grey and Logan (but mostly on Jean, actually), and although minor characters have taken a back seat in this edit (like Rogue, Kitty, etc.), it does not bother me at all. But then again, I can understand if others might find it jarring, especially if they are looking at the smallest details and the like. I just found a couple of ghost frames and audio jumps here and there, but as Wraith have said to me, those will be cleaned up with the upcoming update. All in all, the editing was superb. I can feel the passion Wraith have put into this edit. Looking forward to the updates (especially the HD update), and also the sequel.
By the way, I've watched the updated SD version with the new ending.
Finally, I would like to say that this will be my go-to version for revisiting the franchise now. And I would highly recommend this to others, even on first time viewers. Thank you so much for sharing! :)

Wraith, you are a man of great talents. Thank you for sharing this project with us all. I was absolutely blown away by your edit, and I'm now no longer embarrassed to have the official releases on my shelf. They will likely go sit in a box somewhere and collect dust (along with my Star Wars prequels and the ST:TNG movies). This fanedit will be burned to disc and put in their place. Totally stellar effort.
