Probably not all of them the best, by certainly my favourites:

Austin Powers

Can't believe I forgot Austin Powers. Great shout, even if the third one isn't that great.

Lord of the rings without a doubt. I have the theatrical cut on DVD and extended cut on Blu-ray, very much enjoyed the 11 hour extended cut and watched the whole extended cut again with commentary track.

Unfortunately the Hobbit trilogy sits at the bottom of that list.

Which cut is better? I've heard conflicting things. I am going to watch them for the "first time" (seen them before but was far too young and my attention span was fucked). 



Lord of the Rings has some great consistency that I've rarely seen reproduced by other film makers.

The theatrical cuts are better paced and edited, but the extended cut contains plenty more great footage that helps round out the story. I think the theatrical cuts make for better first time viewing, then any fans should definitely check out the extended cut after.



Probably a toss up between Back to the Future and SW. TLOR is really great, but some of the changes made from the source material just had me scratching my head and saying, "What was the point in that change?"

Good question, I think the first and especially the second film benefits a lot from the extended cut but don't watch them when you're already sleepy

Yeah that's maybe the best way to consume them the first time.



Star Wars original.
