yes. at least, that i remember. even streched out to 4+ hours, i actually enjoy the ultimate cut even more than i enjoyed the directors cut, which i enjoyed even more than the theatrical cut, which i also enjoyed. although the inclusion of the black freighter shit does feel a little forced, and doesnt exactly integrate completely seamlessly into the picture. well not at first anyway. it gets less jarring as the movie progresses. in addition, the live action segues into the animated sequences feel a little stiff as well. but its not enough to sideline ones enjoyment. i mean shit, if you are sitting down to watch the very lengthy ultimate cut, chances are you are already a fan anyways, and arent likely to change your mind much on the movie no matter how cheeseball they may seem. but when that kid and newspaper kid died, thanks to the new footage, their deaths went from hilarious, to gut-wrenching.
