I didn’t realize that it was your work. Well, I don’t mean to say that it’s without any merit just because I have a shorthand way to quickly inspect one thing, nor that my litmus test is conclusive. I just speak from a place of comfort with an edit I’d seen a few times before and has a few unique things about it that sell it for me over others.

I don’t mean to sound dismissive, just that I am not able to thoroughly check out a Hobbit edit I come across at this point. Like I said, though, it’s the Second best version of that sequence that I have seen, and pulls off such a transition best that I’ve come across. i’m sure it would be worthwhile to check the edit out more thoroughly and meant no insult.

That’s fine, you are under no obligation to check out hobbit edits or mine at all. I know you meant no insult, I just got a little frustrated, sorry. But yeah making the hobbit like the book is an extremely tricky edit to accomplish, I guess it also disappoints me that people like me who missed the hobbit edit hype from 2015~ give or take, and released in the past year, will never really have a chance of getting the same recognition because people stick with edits they know and have had. It’s kind of an ‘eye roll’ at this point when someone releases yet another hobbit edit, despite putting in the same/or more work than the initial wave of edits. I could be wrong though. Anyways, I look forward to your final product of star wars and any future middle earth stuff you do.

I feel ya. Part of me wants to avoid getting sucked into Hobbit fan editing beyond just paring down the Maple Films edit, so I’m reluctant to have to get to know something else unless it wows me in a preliminary way.
BUT, I will check it out further whenever I have spare time. Probably won’t sit through the whole thing, though; I had a hard enough time carving out time to watch Bill and Ted 3!

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I have the 1080p MP4s downloaded and they seem great so far! Are these the highest quality versions? If not could I get a link? Thanks!

There are BD25 (mkv) versions also, but I do not have storage space on Google Drive to use to host them. For now they’re available via torrents you can search for. 😕

That took a long-ass time, but the English subtitles are finally complete, and available on the Google Drive. I still just do not have storage space to host the full BD25 versions, sadly, though they are on myspleen.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
