Nice to revisit in extended form after not watching for a good few years, definitely pick up more than when I was the age of the target audience! Shame about the poor quality of one restored scene but that is hardly Bobson's fault, likewise some of the differences in audio from the different sources too.

Found the cropping to 1:78:1 worked most of the time but there were quite a few occasions where it was obvious; probably have preferred a version which pillarboxed the deleted footage, particularly when it was obviously different from the rest already.

Would have to rewatch the original again to see if I prefer it or this one but that for putting this together regardless, let's hope that the story of discovery and restoration of lost footage for other films (including Goonies director Richard Donner's "Superman" 3-hour cut) will be repeated here too.
