John Patterson, please go and fuck yourself,12830,1468309,00.html

This is one of the most wrongheaded thought processes on film preservations that could be reckoned. Yes, the director's cut is an abused privledge, and I don't have to point any farther than The Animal UE or The New Guy DC to make my point. But, Patterson please, what crack pipe must you have hit to not want to see a director's vision restored when it was obviously tinkered with by studio heads? Unless, as seems obvious, you have no idea what you're talking about.

You can't suggest there should be a pick and choose method for what gets restored, and you certainly shouldn't be talking out of your ass about a film that has long been rumored to have four hours and was chopped in half. Please, please, for the love of god, don't open your mouth on this subject again. The world is already filled with too many people talking loud and not saying anything. You deserve a spanking.
