Star Trek II on AMC
A couple of years ago, I felt a bit old that AMC was airing Superman II as a "classic" movie. Not that it isn't a classic movie, mind you...it's just that I was young enough to see it in a theater when it first came out. Thus, I felt old.
Now several years later, we're showing another movie from my formative years and one of my all-time favorites, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. First of all, I have to admit that commericals on AMC--they pretty much suck. They just come in once every ten or so minutes and damn where the movie is. In the middle of a space battle?!? We don't give a damn--we're cutting to sell Livitria! And the interesting thing is that AMC doesn't get the original cut of this one or even the newly done director's cut. Nope...they go for the TV edit..which I guess I'm one of the few who would be able to tell but there are some small, minor edits here and there and just things not flowing right and it just bugs me.
American Movie Classics...yeah, whatever!
