I mean, yeah, the dog makes more sense. But to me that’s literally the only thing about the theatrical cut that’s better.
Come to think of it, I might tweak it myself to replace the ox with the dog and leave the rest of the assembly cut alone…
Do it already and prove Ray simultaneously wrong and right.
I only watched the Assembly Cut once and the Ox is the only major change I remember. Maybe it’s full of movie-strengthening differences.
