Trailer for the Unrated Cut:

Can't believe I still haven't seen this... wish I could go back and make the time to see it in cinemas.

Oh well, only 2 more months until it's out on Blu. :sleep:

I've been thinking about that... for those of us that haven't yet seen it; do we watch the theatrical cut first, or just jump straight into the ultimate/directors cut? I'm thinking the former... I'll no doubt want to rewatch it soon after anyway, in which case I can then give the ultimate edition a go. And I realise I basically just answered my own question. :LOL:

I would always suggest watching the theatrical cut first and then any extended version yes time consuming but it can be very useful.

Yeah, that seems like the best option. I usually rewatch Snyder's films with his commentary (Maximum Movie Mode - hopefully BvS will have that feature too!) afterwards anyway, so I'll be watching it multiple times either way. :)

If I had a choice of watching the theatrical or extended for the first time, I would watch it the way it was intended by the director, which is the extended. Why watch the chopped-up/interfered version first?

Being a huge Batman fan, I honestly wish they had released the ultimate cut in theaters. So what if it is over 3 hours long? Release it in theaters and if it is truly bad then it would be justified that Zack Snyder is to blame. Just my 2 cents.

The Ultimate Cut is released today on streaming services. I'm yet to see any cut of the film, but was planning to check out the theatrical cut first... however, I can't wait any longer! Going to check it out in a bit. :D

Well, I didn't love it as much as I'd hoped/expected, but it certainly wasn't the car crash critics made it out to be. I can definitely see what people meant about it being a tad messy and overloaded in places though... it had me lost and confused a few times. Overall I found it very entertaining and loved all of the main characters - Batfleck was awesome, although I think I still need to see more of him before I decide whether he's my favourite Batman. Wonder Woman was amazing, but underused... this obviously wasn't her movie though, so I can let that slide. Supes was great (and my favourite) as usual... I still wish they'd given him his own sequel before BvS though. Lex was good, although I wasn't really sold on him until towards the end. Irons is the perfect Alfred... can't wait to see more of him in the standalone Batman movie. I think the real winner though is the soundtrack... it made each scene even more epic than it already was. The movie gets a big thumbs up from me! :thumbs:

@Noodles I'm guessing you watched the Extended Cut? Yes?

Ive been looking at a lot of reviews for the Extended edition of the film and EVERYONE is saying it was WAY BETTER then the theatrical cut.
People who didn't like the film and watched this version actually enjoyed it now!

I think DC / WB made a big mistake cutting this film just for the sake not wanting to release a 3 hour film. Apparently Character beats, Story elements, and overall flow of the film all work better now.
Can't wait to watch it!

I did mate. Obviously I can't compare it to the theatrical cut because I'm yet to see that version, but I've also been seeing more positive reviews for the ultimate cut. I'm very interested in checking out the shorter version though, just to see how it does actually compare. I imagine the studio were thinking a 3 hour run time might put a lot of people off seeing it in theaters... I know it puts me off anyway (I don't mind watching long films at home though), but then I'm not a fan of cinemas in the first place. :p

I think they need to bring back an Intermission for really long movies then.

When I went and saw the Hateful 8 last winter they had one for it and it was fantastic!
It allowed people to take a bathroom break / stretch your legs / and discuss the film (thus far) with your friends. I loved it!

It would really turn seeing the film into an experience... rather then just a movie.

Couldn't agree more. I already struggle to watch 2 hour long films without taking at least one break, so I'd have no chance lasting 3 hours lol.

I've just finished watching the extended cut. I loved the film when it first came out but thought it was badly edited. The extended cut is MUCH better. The story overall makes a lot more sense.
Clark actually does some investigative journalism. You can see why people are actually afraid of the Bat-brand and Lex actually seems like a mastermind of a bad guy rather than some insane eccentric. Even the comparisons between the funerals add so much to the subtext of the story. Love the fact that Luthor is being moved to Arkham instead of staying in Metropolis

And that extended Warehouse scene! Amazing!

Some critics are changing their mind after seeing the extended cut, and saying that Clark Kent/Superman is better represented. I haven't seen it yet until it is released in bluray, I can't wait!
