Thing is, for those last 2, people didn't think those movies were a mess for the director's cuts. They went to the theater, saw a bit of a mess, and that was their impression. Oliver Stone and Ridley Scott both apparently felt strongly enough about the negative reception to recut their movies and even shoot additional scenes. Hell, maybe a good version of Robin Hood (2011) exists somewhere in Ridley Scott's head, but people haven't seen it yet.
- Kung Pow: Enter The Fist - I still believe that people who hate this movie are utterly fucking retarded. Still waiting for that sequel, Steve Oedekerk!
- Constantine - Despite Alex's qualms with the audio mixing and how much it veers from the comics, I love it.
- Gran Torino - The acting is terrible, but goddammit, Clint Eastwood is just too bad ass.
- Hackers - It introduced me to Angelina Jolie's boobs, and it had a hacker named Cereal Killer.
- George of the Jungle/ Dudley Do-Right - I love those two flicks so hard. Brendan Fraser!
- Bio-Dome - I still believe that people who hate this movie are utterly fucking retarded.
- Land of the Lost - Despite questioning how it was a PG-13 movie and even remotely related to Land of the Lost, I loved it.
- Alexander: The Final Cut - Really enjoy the fuck out of that movie. Still cannot explain why.
As for this talk about Kingdom of Heaven, I should say this: that is a film where the theatrical cut was a fucking mess. The DVD Director's Cut of that flick is fucking excellent, despite being long as fuck. The pacing felt much better, the storytelling felt far more fleshed out, and the characters had a lot of depth added that they needed. "
