Can we please get the Richard Donner Cut as a different movie page? I know it's a recut of this film, but it's much different (and WAY better, IMO) than this version. Plus, the battle of which is better would be interesting to see unfold.

I watched both versions today and honestly preferred the theatrical cut, though both have plenty of problems.

First two acts: As good as the first. Third act: a sign for how awful the series was going to get. (Why do some great films have incredibly underwhelming climaxs? Superman 2, Mystic River, Thunderball and Silence of the Lambs)
