Anyone else think Empire Strikes Back's Special Edition is actually better than the Theatrical Cut?

My vote no. The suspense of the Wampa scene is reduced by showing it too much, expanding Cloud City is nice but IMO calls too much attention to itself, using Ian would’ve been better if he wasn’t delivering his lines like he’s literally reading from cue cards, recycling footage from ROTJ to show Vader returning to his shuttle was pointless, and, no, getting rid of ‘Bring my shuttle’ for me was a big no no. I will agree though ESB is the more tolerable of the SEs.

I agree with you 100% I see you noticed the Vader Dialogue change and the Vader going to the Death Star was unecessary as well.
