This is a fantastic version of one of my fave films of all time. For years I’ve thought that I remembered scenes incorrectly and probably in the wrong order. This version has corrected my thoughts of premature memory loss thankfully by restoring everything in an almost seamless way.
The quality time and pains that Wraith has gone through to create the brilliant version are quite remarkable. It looks just as good, and in some places a lot better than my UHD official version of the directors cut!
I recommend all CE3K fans to check it out!

Having grown up on and watched the different versions of this movie over the past 30 years I can definitely say that this versions feels like the Complete Story.

and to be perfectly frank I take absolutely no issue with it. There is some jumps in visual quality but that is to be expected when working from three different sources and Wraith did an admirable job with it. Audio was perfect - no issues with music or being able to understand the actors when they were speaking.

As CE3K is my all-time favorite film ever, to read about Fan Edits and then to find this “complete” version made me as excited as I was back in the 70’s, every time I climbed through the toilet windows at the cinema to watch it over and over again. We didn’t have a VHS, so I had to get into the cinema to watch this truly amazing film.

I’m so happy that I stumbled across Wraith’s masterpiece of an edit, we finally have the definitive version that this film deserves.

Wraith’s edit just brings it all to life again, every scene that was ever released, and also carefully crafted to provide the big screen “film” effect.

Long story short, Wraith has nailed this seamless edit and I want to thank him for making an old man very happy.

To me this film means something, it’s important and Wraith has expanded my enjoyment of it. Thank you Wraith.

I'll start by saying this is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Even as a kid, I would watch my VHS copy over and over. Then I acquired the DVD copy that had all 3 official versions of the movie and would watch each version in succession to see all the different scenes. Even at that age, I knew how much nicer it would be to have a version that combined all the scenes together and could not understand why one had never been released.
After long waiting, I finally have that version and it's everything I ever wanted.

Thank you Wraith for the fantastic edit!!!
