So, I am a HUGE fan of the novel, and while I found the original to be ok (I mean, DiCaprio can make nearly anything watchable, imho, lol) the music really was jarring. It just didn't fit with the rest of the film. I think I understand what they were trying to accomplish (showcasing the relevance of the story to today's world) I really feel like it fell flat. This version fixed that (mostly) and the added scenes, etc, made it about as close to the novel as I think you could really get, to be perfectly honest. There were definite audio hiccups here and there, and the ending seemed to be a bit glitchy (I believe it was an added scene, but it felt like parts of it repeated... not sure). Regardless, I am SOOOO happy to have this edit, and even with the blemishes, it remains the only way to watch the film, imho.
