Case in point. The original Blade Runner was had many different cuts to this classic film over the years that I can remember. Now I defend a longer cut of the film that has never been seen before, but with so many different cuts of the film. It has been a hard to chose the best on that is on the market.
It's nice to have a better feel of a classic film, but you can hurt it by changing it too much. Like what Star Wars has done over the years. They changed it so much that they cut a few things that make it feel out of place. Just look the original & the Blu Ray cuts of the films. Yes I do thing that it a bit much to change a classic film to in a remastered mess.
I don't mind to have a touch up version of a classic film, but when its too much of a change that it no longer a great movie. it's now a film with too much added crap that needs to & restored to it true glory days.
I'm not hating this idea for a better film, but if you change a film too much. You can lose the magic that it once had. Making a film shine in a longer time & better light is the main reason that I can have hope for a better movie in the years to come.
I just love to see a film in the original lay out, but if it had to be cut down for time reasons or had to rush out to the market for what ever reasons & didn't look to good in the theaters. Then I can forgive the people that had to clap it all together in short about of time.
