>>64497004 I sat next to some frat-dude-bros when I watched it, and somewhere in between all the laid-on-thick 50's and 60's music with the scene periods, one of these young men, younger than me even, opined audibly to his buddy "god-damn, they're laying it on thick, aren't they?" *all along the watchtower plays, etc*. Insulting the audience's intelligence, in a way.
On the other hand, even though I never cared to re-watch the movie, it did significantly improve on the comic by having Dr. Manhattan be the scapegoat at the end, rather than "zomg randum space octopus xD". So at least that bit was streamlined, and I agree with the other reviewers/commenters who appreciated the obvious improvement.
>>64501005 I didn't dislike the extended version. It definitely slows down the pacing without adding much that was NEEDED, but did provide more context and world-building. I'd be willing to donate an afternoon one day to watch the like 4-hour version that cuts in the Black Freighter cartoon.
>>64501595 >It definitely slows down the pacing without adding much that was NEEDED, but did provide more context and world-building. This. I've seen all three versions and prefer the ultimate cut, but if I don't have the time to waste watching the director's cut doesn't detract from anything. You should definitely give all three a shot though and see which best suits you.

>>64497146 George Lucas made Star Wars in a collaborative effort where many of his retarded ideas were hemmed in by properly creative people. Lawrence fucking Kasdan and irving Kirshner MADE the original trilogy by making Empire so goddamn good. Then Lucas pushed the trilogy to the brink of schlock with his fucking Teddy bears and his yes-man hack director phoning in the color-in-the-lines resolution script.
The prequels prove just how little Lucas "made" the original trilogy. We've seen what he makes when he has total creative control.
