Superman II: the Richard Donner Cut
Superman: The Movie director Richard Donner actually shot much of Superman II, with the plan being for him to make both films simultaneously. But conflict with the producers led them to replace him with Richard Lester, who reshot more than 50% of Superman II to receive DGA credit. Now, thanks to fan's interest and Internet campaigns, Donner's vision for Superman II has been restored. To celebrate the DVD release on Nov 28th 2006, Donner, his cast mates and other celebrities attended a screening of the newly restored version.

This is #1 on my Christmas list this year.

Though I have to admit, I will miss the giant cellophane 'S'.

I know Superman II has a great reputation, but I found it rather choppy. Probably because they were trying to cobble it together.
