the theatrical version is garbage.

just awful. i couldn't understand why they advertised the "alternate" one as "controversial".

Marketing gimmick, just like "unrated" is used even if they add a few minutes of G rated footage...

It seems as if they shot the movie not knowing what ending they were going to use, so neither ending is good because neither one had the appropriate setup in the rest of the movie.

well the "alternate cut" held together as a whole much better. even in the theatrical version, i think the setup was there for the "alternate" ending, and the alternate cut included still one more scene which made it even clearer.

the alternate cut is also faithful to the actual meaning of the title of the movie, whereas the theatrical cut is forced to change it completely, making it utter nonsense.

 ;D
Now to BLOW your Minds  :o

The Alternate Ending was actually The Theatrical Ending they were going to originally use
 :( Then a test audience came along and didn't like it, then they changed it,

Juxtapositioning all of the conversation thus far,

so just reverse everything and you should be okay

As for me  >:D I like the original (not the old original, the new original)

Time to slink away.... into the shadows...

...adding further conviction to my already stoic belief that all test audience members are bread mould.
