Just glanced at it. It fails my litmus test, at about 2hr13m. Oh, well.

I edited my post again, because I found the litmus test scene in M4’s edit. It looked… okay to me. The music builds up a bunch before they run the rapids, and only after they run the rapids does the music fade, just as they get to the listless floating part.

I am downloading Maple Films’ version to compare.

Maple Films is the Hobbit edit I go to. It’s the only one I’ve checked out that truly feels like it works as well as it’d need to on its own. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best IMHO.

When I check out a Hobbit edit, I use the barrel scene as a litmus test. If it goes from the music obviously ramping up for an action sequence to the dwarves floating listlessly, as they almost all do, it fails the test and I look no further.

I previously stumbled on M4’s Hobbit “Book Edit,” and was drawn to it because of his goal of bringing the trilogy more closely aligned with the original book. I’ve downloaded it but haven’t watched it yet. Did you look at that one?

ETA2: I’m interested in a link for your TLJ Legendary Cut.

To make the saga watchable in episodic order while keeping the plot twists intact.
There’s a complete changelist in the very first thread.

I read the changelist in the first post before asking here. Unfortunately, I must be missing something. (I’m really not trying to be difficult here… I just don’t understand.) I guess a better way to ask the question is this: How does the unmodified ROTJ conflict with your stated goal above?

And a followup question: Does your stated goal require edits to other movies in the series?
