Man oh man, ProblemEliminator lives up to his name by eliminating the minor problems that held back Casino Royale in my opinion from being a 9/10 to 10/10.
Toning down the edginess of Bond with making him less of a loose cannon does wonders for the movie, and removing those scenes where M is scolding him like a newbie was a good call. I also liked that some of the dialogue was made tighter, and the poker scenes flow better in my opinion and keep the tension going. Also, thanks for removing those scenes of the him driving the ford and using the 'GPS' sony phone, it makes the movie hold up better with time. Other cuts like removing the defib scene I was skeptical on but it actually didn't detract from the movie much at all, if any.
Overall, I'd say the TBP cut of Casino Royale is the version of the classic I will watch on repeat viewings, and I recommend it to everyone who enjoyed Casino Royale, or even those who didn't like its length.

And here I thought Casino Royale was already an excellent movie, but somehow PE has managed to make it notches higher on my list of movies - I applaud your work! I cannot wait to check out your cut for Spectre.

Well. As good as the original is, PE manages to tighten it to near perfection. A high quality-edit, throughout. Visually perfect, no hiccups in audio and narratively slimmer. Impressive work, to say the least. Cutting out the poisoning works great and I did not miss it. The same goes for the overlong scenes when Bond rehabilitates. Much of the poor exposition is taken care of, and the trimming of the action scenes helps them, even tough I never had a problem with them in the original.

Highly, highly recommended!

Very good job. I really like the changes made here. Bond's relationship with M and Vesper feels more natural and I particularly loved the hokey poisoning part being removed. This is basically a really good movie with most of the minor little quibbles removed (for me, anyway). It improves upon the original and is now my go-to version.

Minor issues: I think the saturation or blur is slightly too high in scenes. Particularly the black and white opening and on the felt of the poker table it is noticeable. Also, one product of cutting out the poisoning is that it is said before one break "when we return the big blind will be 200,000" and then when they come back it's "the big blind is now 500,000" or something like that. I could be messing up the numbers but they don't match. Minor thing that could probably be fixed by cutting one line or the other, or replacing the amount in the line before the break.

No editing issues, very technically proficient. Well done!

Bravo. This is a solid FanFix of the film. I thought your choices were terrific and not overdone. I think sometimes editors get so carried away that they substantially alter the story. Not here. This is just a good streamlining of the original. It was "just right."

Video and audio edits seemed perfect. I couldn't detect any problems. Its my new "go to" version of this film. Great job.
