Removing the transformation scene and wedding greatly improves the pace of You Only Live Twice. In addition to the Transformation being offensive both it and the wedding were just plain stupid. A spy wanting to keep a low profile should not have a big wedding where Bond and the bride are the centre of attention and Connery barely looks any different after his makeup is applied.

Other changes I really appreciated: The sunset shot of Kissy on the boat looks great now, was very distracting before. Removing the back projection shot of Brandt parachuting ( although her plan to kill Bond is still needlessly convoluted.)

The one change I did not like was the cutting of the assasination of Aki. I like the scene and although I would have liked for Aki to remain the Bond girl for the whole film, having her killed increases the sense of jeopardy and for me would have been preferable to her just dropping out of the story.
