When I watch old films, those I haven't seen in years, I'm often surprised by the small scenes that I've forgotten. It's like discovering a new room--or at least a closet--in an old house.
Still, when I recently watched Watchmen on cable, I was surprised. Moments kept popping up that I didn't remember, but this film only came out a year ago. Some were strong, violent moments. Was I losing it?
Then I checked, and discovered it was the director's cut, with 24 extra minutes. That's more like it.
