Director’s cuts, Extended Cuts, or Special editions are sometime the best way to view a movie. It allows you to see the story they way they wanted it told before they compromised. Most times they’re great. In the case of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 20th anniversary edition an alternate cut can completely damage and ruin a movie. We talk about this famous disaster then bring up other director’s or extended cuts that we think result in inferior films.
Happy 40th Anniversary to E.T. by the way!
