I saw the original in theaters back when I was a teenager. The new one definitely has better action sequences and fight scenes...and has Kate Beckinsale. But I wasn't quite as impressed as I had hoped. Perhaps it was just missing all those cheesy one-liners from Arnold.
Naturally, I adore these movies. The extended editions are worth watching. I'm not going to give a numerical rating, just some advice; if you loved the movies before, it would be worth picking up the extended editions if you haven't already seen them. If you don't like them, I wouldn't want you to waste your time.
Listening to the cast commentary is loads of fun though. Billy Boyd's commentary is hilarious and Andy Serkis chimes in with *perfect* Gollum / Smeagol voices from time to time. It's really great stuff.

I hate the way you cling to ignorance and pass it off as innocence
I finished watching this earlier today and truly enjoyed this movie. Jake Gyllenhaal does such a great job portraying a "crazy person." The whole movie had me interested to see what Donnie would do next. If you haven't seen this I'd recommend it. It's up there with One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and Shutter Island as far as these types of movies.
A movie in the sense of Kick-Ass, where a normal guy assumes the role of a super hero. It's pretty dark humor with a lot of blood and gore. I really enjoyed it, I'd explain why I took some points off but it'd spoil the movie. Rainn Wilson really fits the role perfectly, along with Ellen Page helps bring in some much needed humor.
Evidence 2011 3/10 .. I dont mind "found footage" movies like blair witch but this takes the shaky cam to the next level with static, random flashing light etc. It actually made me hate the actors and want them to die.
Funny and entertaining, the movie that made me a huge Kevin Smith fan back in my younger days, many will skip it because its black and white, but its really worth watching if you enjoy Kevin Smith type of humor and the Askewniverse universe.
