Worst movie I've ever seen in theaters. Daredevil lets someone die on the traintracks? After the famous Frank Miller sequence where he saves Bullseye from a similar fate and hates himself for it? Just months after a movie where a rampaging Hulk DOESN'T KILL A SINGLE PERSON?!?
I understand that an adaptation doesn't need to slavishly adhere to the source material. Daredevil not killing is an essential part to his character. Hulk is a goddamn out of control monster.
Brubaker was a perfect choice as guest.
Excited as hell because (again) this is the worst theater experience I have ever had.

Does that apply to radioactive induced blindness?
Also, I think that's just naturally implied. No one thinks losing your eyesight makes your hearing into a mutant strength. You just gain more sensitivity because you have less sensory crutches.

Fantastic episode, with a perfect guest. First time I've ever been annoyed by June (in a good way). The fact that she "loved it" but was clearly talking about the theatrical release drove me BONKERS. Because most things she references are actually sorta turned into a lovable thing in the director's cut!
In the directors cut, every character is developed by at least 1 extra scene. Motivations are at least 2 dimensional instead of 1. The "Romance" isn't shoehorned in. And the Coolio subplot being edited out literally edits out the entire narrative structure of the film. All those weird disparate scenes actually make complete sense now! Still a weak movie, but it goes from "Only Thing Worse Is Batman & Robin" to "Somewhat Better Than Spiderman 3."
If you got sick of hearing the guest reference it, they really aren't exaggerating how much of a different movie it is. It literally turns it INTO a movie. I've never seen anything like it. Theatrical version is more fun as an awful movie, but the DC is (somewhat) genuinely worth watching if bad movies truly upset you.

For those of you who are really busy or don't wanna sit down to see the director's cut, here is a comparison between the 2 versions... ENJOY
