Blade Runner wins, if this was a competition, but I can't think of any others.

Stop fuckin' with your movies, directors.

I think the Snyder version of Justice League was a lot better than the first version I saw.

I'm told Superman 2 belongs on this list, but I don't think I ever saw the "Donner cut".

You've got it backwards. Directors Cut versions came out because the studio took the film away from the director, where studio executives or bean counters fucked with the film.

The Free Willy version where the killer whale dies in the end was actually better then the original.

No. We'll do a separate thread on that.
