I really enjoyed this cut! It's been quite a while since I saw the original, but I've seen the original about a dozen times. One of the things that you very much improved was the flow of the narrative. The original is much like a ballet, where the feeling of the story is also an equal part of the story. Here it seems as though you sought to tell a tiger story at the slight expense of some visual dancing.

I won't say every cut was perfect (in particular I noticed a seemingly unnecessary harsh cut during the airlock explosion scene, where in the original it was a smooth fade). I did however really enjoy your take on the star gate scene, that even as he ages in The Room he's still travelling in the gate.

Overall this was very enjoyable! I can't say it will replace the original for me (maybe if it was 30 mins shorter it would make a great piece for quick viewings) but I had a great time watching it!
