I gave my two line review in Tales of Home.  It didn't annoy me as much as the original, but what more can be said when you were handed a pile of dung to begin with?  Basically all you could do was take out the worst. It was fairly smooth, no real jarring jumps.

{{ Theres a couple bits watching it back I might be inclined to change- the biggest is probably to reorder the Beorn scenes so Gandalf has the introduction with Beorn in the garden before they spend the night rather than after. Partly as it would make more sense to me, and partly to offset PJ's weird day length problem- its night when they get rescued by the eagles, then dawn somehow by time they arrive at carrock, then night again when Bilbo is scouting and they see Beorn, then dawn again, or at latest mid-morning when they arrive at Beorns, then Gandalf tells them to get some sleep and its night again!

The other is more minor, I only didnt notice whilst editing because so many of the battle sequences are out of order in the original - the dwarves in response to the arrival of the orcs form a shield wall- but then its ruined by elves inexplicably leaping over the top of it to attack the orcs, making the shield wall useless and looking ridiculous, but later in the battle we see what I presume was the original shot to go there, before the flying elves were added, of the dwarves raising shields as the orcs break on them and using pole arms, which makes sense, So I figured I could put those two bits back together again.
I mean I knew the battle was a mess in the original, but its only when editing it you realise that PJ has obviously gone back to the original stuff and just thrown crap at it shoving it in anywhere he can until the order of the battle is impossible to follow and makes no sense and is crammed with stupid.

It's too bad you couldn't make it look like Thorin, Fili and Kili died in the midst of battle, but they made it impossible. Would have cut out a lot of crap.

No time whatsoever. Hopefully you two at least can watch together.

well I think you know by now that I thought the original LOTRs was perfect. Embarassed But I wont be reading or watching LOTRs for another couple of years, it is too soon for me. I want to watch them 'fresh' which is a bit hard when every frame is imprinted on my memory.

{{ Did you ever watch part 2 of TH Amarie?
If there is any interest at all I'll provide the links from Ringo for the LotR's purist edits too. }}
