Re:Director's Cut? Or am I just too cynical?
Aliens Director Cut had some small scenes removed. Ripley coming to terms with missing out on 50 years and her daughter growing old before her. It also had the big autocannons setup for protection about their perimeter before the aliens learn to move in 3-D. I don't remember much else. Made more sense.
I don't make a real issue of special editions. If the first version is rubbish there's no way I'm paying for a second version that could be the same!
Right about LOTR. A lot of people I know were pssed about the Fellowship release. I didn't buy the other either. I only nkow a few who have. They hurt themselves with that stunt.
