So many fine, but it must be The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King!

I don't believe a Justice League director's cut has been released. If you're wanting to find one to take off that's probably the one.

I know there's one too many already, but still FYC:
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) 

Just as with Blade Runner (1982) director's cut became a more popular option to see then the theatrical one, even with some TV stations replacing theatrical version with a director's one.

Yes that's a very interesting director's cut/special edition. I still think the theatrical works very well but the scene with Kyle Reece, the computer chip scene and those T-1000 sequences of him melding with objects are pretty cool.

James The Movie Guy after years of virtually only director's cut shown on Ukrainian television seeing original theatrical cut was a refreshing experience as it has a slightly (but crucially different flow). 

Still, scenes you've described are rather crucial to film's narrative, as well.

I still think the theatrical's narrative works fine and I think the scenes in the special edition, while very good, could have been left out and would have worked just as well. I feel the same way about the special edition of Aliens which, while showing what happened on LV-426 prior to the marines arriving, doesn't really have to be there in my opinion since I prefer the mystery. Although I do really like the scene when Ripley finds out about her daughter and Hudson's extended dialogue.

Apocalypse Now. I recently saw the extended version of its 3 hours and it's just as fascinating

I have to disagree on that one but each to their own. I don't know I just like the theatrical's pace more and those scenes with the French I find extremely boring!

LOTR The Fellowship of the Ring is the best by far. The Return of the King is too long and the deleted scenes aren't that good.
