    Maybe wait a few years, then they'll release an 'unrated' version

    You either like or dislike the film on it's own. I'm sure an extra 21 seconds won't make any difference. :smoke:

    It would make a whole lot of difference if it involved Salma Hayek getting her cans out:D

    Unfortunately any cuts are unlikely to involve Salma and her body parts but probably relate to violence.

    Anyone who saw the film at the cinema or who bought the existing versions of the DVD will have seen the cut version and I am sure that the missing 21 seconds will have had no bearing on their enjoyment.

    Actually I think that is true...... I remember seeing all the cuts in the deleted scenes on the 2-disc release although I haven't watched the film or extras in ages

    Lots of movies are cut to receive an R rating. If an uncut version is available - great. It's the same with director's cuts. If availabe - great. But let's face it - are you NOT going to buy a movie just because a director's cut is NOT available? No, of course not. I prefer a director's cut or an uncut release as many do, but if not available you have to make do with what's still, let's face it, the theatrical release.

    What exactly is a "Director's Cut". Presumably in most cases the director has approved the theatrical release so that already qualifies as a Director's Cut.

    In order to produce a 90 minute film there is probably at least double that if not more that is left on the cutting room floor including scenes that didn't work as well as hoped. Putting some of these extra scenes in ends up with a film that wasn't what the director intended but is saleable as a "Director's Cut SE"

    It's a naff movie, but I would like to see the 21s extra, after all I didn't buy Lethal Weapon 4 R2, I bought on R1. R2 has been cut by 1min 33secs!:rotfl:

    It's funny, the Scream directors cut has only 20 more seconds, removed for the R rating, but they make it a much 'harder' film.

    Tee is right.

    The cuts were from the initial slaughter by the vampires.

    One cut was a snake head thing coming out of Hayek's mouth. That sort of thing. You haven't missed much.

    The director has approved the theatrical release yes, but in the constraints of the film studios (e.g. "give us a 2 hour movie"). With a director's cut, the director doesn't have these constraints any more so you end up with a movie that hasn't had forced cuts due to length or whatever :smoke:

    Sometimes, those extra seconds make all the difference. Don't see why that's dull? If you have not seen them, you can't possibly know.

    Yeah, sometimes they do yes so I can agree with that. It doesn't make a movie better, but it can enhance your enjoyment of certain scenes. A classic example is The Matrix. With all the headbutts removed in the Region 2 version, the fight sequences are just not as exciting - they lose a lot of oomph. Miles better with the headbutts :smashin: Doesn't mean I would refuse to buy a 'cut headbutts' version if that's all that was available though :smoke:
