The DC of Star Trek II isn’t a different movie, it’s just a better version of the same movie.

No.

My feelings on this issue are pretty standard for a Star Wars purist. Dumb title and it messes up the timing of the music to the crawl. I call it Star Wars when I can. “The original Star Wars” when people get confused.

Mind elaborating what you’re responding to here?

It’s been A New Hope since before I was born, so I’m used to calling it that. I do like it as a title, as it’s very simple yet accurate to the movie. But I generally use “Star Wars '77” or “the original” to distinguish the unaltered cut.

Star Trek II’s Director’s cut is not better than the theatrical cut.

I beg to differ, but that wasn’t the point of what I was saying anyway.

That wasn’t the point of my original post either. But you asked for me to elaborate on the Star Trek quote like you couldn’t figure out what I meant.

“No” is a bit vague. You could have meant that the DC of Star Trek II is a fundamentally different film and that it is considered such, disputing the point I was making.

I’m not going to argue semantics with you over something that doesn’t matter.

That’s fine. I was simply explaining that I had reason to ask for clarification on a one word response to a six month old post.
