I'm of the opinion only bad films should be rebooted... [In reply to] Can't Post

... although I'll admit the second version of The Fly is my favourite. And I prefer the seventies Invasion of the Body Snatchers to the original. (In my defence I saw it first.)

Not really anything to do with reboots, but I do find that when there are two versions of the same film I often prefer something in between. I generally prefer the Extended versions of films to their theatrical release. However there are certain scenes I often wish had remained on the cutting room floor, suggesting my actual preference was a film somewhere in between.

An example of this is the face off between Gandalf and the Witch King in the extended version of Return of the King. While I think the scene is interesting and dramatic I think it should have been kept as a deleted scene. Or it should have been a shorter version like in the book (i.e. where they exchange words but don't actually fight).
