And here's my third Hobbit edit which has far more cuts than the other two but mostly smaller moments that slowed things down for me. There were a lot of silly stunts during the battle that got old fast. Since I removed Azog from the previous edits he just shows up here as a leader of the orc army similar to Gothmog in RotK.

-everything from opening credits to title moved to DoS edit (open on Galdalf imprisoned)
-add title card
