Tonight they played the South Park where they talk about rereleases and how it's wrong. I just wanted to hear everybody's thoughts about directors "updating" their films for modern audiences.

I agree with the South Park kids. If it was ok for Elliot to "penis breath" in the 80's it's ok for him to say it now.

He does say it now. That was just a rumor that they were going to cut it out. It's the guns into flashlights thing that bugs me.

He still says 'penis breath'. The only line I know that was changed was: "No, you cannot go as a terrorist" to "No, you cannot go as a hippie" in the Halloween scene.

Im pretty liberal when it comes to my views about this. If the movie turns out to be better (none come to mind) then fine, but if they fuck it up I can criticize how not to touch something that is already made.

About ET, taking out the guns was a terrible move. Nowadays kids movies have to be so sheltering, there is nothing to be afraid of.

Here's the thing, in many ways the director is right, we get director's cuts all the time, so what is the difference in adding effects changing dialogue etc... It's "their" film so they can do what they want....

BUT and I do have a big but here - my qualm is with DVD and the capabilites of it, we should have the option of what version we want to see, much like ET's DVD where you get both versions of the film, I appreciate that.

I dread the thought of not being able to see the Star Wars I saw when I was 7 years old, the Jedi of my teens, the updated versions are fine for what they are, and if Lucas lovesa them great, but I don't love them, not the way I love the originals. It's my childhood, it's a tanglible memory that the others don't ellicit.

So updates are fine, as long as the originals are preserved and the choice is available for the viewer.
