Wow! Well, I'd just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed watching this.
Nearly everything seemed to fit. The revised score and production audio, coupled with lots of new visual treats all worked together, and I thought that it zipped along at a nice pace. I even preferred some of the chosen cuts and pacing to Mr. Scotts. It may be that it was new or some another reason but I found myself noticing the score more here and it was great to hear some of the music sequences play out. I found that the longer segments improved the flow and I enjoyed spending more time with these characters.

Where did all of the extra stuff come from? There seemed to be a lot of it and peppered thoughout the film to keep, at least, my interest. Were the alternate opening credits created for this or had they appeared somewhere before? It has been a while since I looked at the Quadrilogy extras. Is there a list available of the source material?

I did find that I kept wanting to hear the final audio mix in places and wonder if the segments exist to create a more complete mix of the alternate score, on-set audio and sound effects, coupled with an extended cut of the film. For instance, I wanted to hear the sound of keys being pressed on the computer terminal. This would fall into the 'creative' category rather than 'preservation' though.

Great work guys! Keep it up and the hilarious easter egg was a nice touch.
