Watched the director's cut, because I heard it was superior and I liked it. It's a bit cheesy at times and Tom Cruise isn't nearly as good as he has become, but the wonderful visuals and makeup, along with Tim Curry's show stealing performance make up for most of it's flaws. I also really liked Jerry Goldsmith's score.

Saw this one again. Remember I liked it as a teenager. Have to admit I felt it was slow going this time around. Beautiful to look at, and Tim Curry as the Darkness is a delight, but the entire film feels like a dream sequence. It is most likely intentional, but makes everything appear as if it's "not really happening" if that makes any sort of sense.

As with a few other Scott films, the visuals are spectacular, particularly from production and makeup design standpoints. Tim Curry is fantastic underneath a metric ton of makeup. But it's all in service of a script that just seems incredibly...weak, if not stupid. I didn't go in expecting to love this, but I was hoping I'd like it a bit more.
