I'm not bashing what AMC is showing. I'm bashing the channel as a whole for their mindless editing/commercial showing/time compression they do on a lot of their films. When AMC didn't show commercials, they were a fine channel. But, once they bit into that pie, things went downhill in a hurry.
For example, when AMC was showing the original cast Star Trek films, the sound was awful, since they relied on "time compression" to fit the movie in the time frame allotted for it. The music was out of key, the dialogue didn't sound right.
If I want my classic movie fix, I'll go to TCM. Or rent.
