    I have just finished watching Wyatt Earp 2 disk SE and was gobsmacked that I had missed this movie first time round :suicide: Thank god for bargin DVDs I paid only £6 for this and really enjoyed this film.

    How many Gems have we all missed at some point? Please lets make a list of great movies we may have missed out on seeing first time round :smashin:

    The Family Man with Nicolas Cage is another good heart warming movie I missed. The wife found this in my collection unopened. I have around 2000 dvds which 15% have not been opened due to lack of time + new films being delivered each week :rolleyes:

    Oh well I will pick some more movies to order if anyone leaves any replys on this Thread :cool: ;) Then take several years of work so I can watch them all :laugh:

    wyatt earp is a very good film. i think it came out close to tombstone, and that being shorter was more successful. but for me we is by far the better film.

    i even went to the cinema to see it, around 3hours i think it was.

    Good film - just cant believe they screwed up the dvd by only including the normal cut and not including the extended version that is on the laserdisc :thumbsdow

    Check out Drive with Marc Dacoscos (sp?)
    Was a straight-to-dvd action flick in the UK but its utterly brilliant.
    The R2 DVD is fantastic too - trust me, if you are into action movies this one kicks ass!

    Wyatt Earpe is a SUPERB film. I don't normally like westerns or even Denis Quaid, who absolutley STOLE the film. What a performance and a deserved Oscar nominee(?)
    I saw it first time round and have been waiting ages for a DVD release to see it in all it's WS glory.

    being a big john woo fan i like windtalkers quite a lot. i know a lot of people dont rate it that much. it has some good set peices, although i remember reading before it came out that the studio asked for an action scene to be taken out, it was in the story and filmed.

    id say worth a rent, my local vid shop has this for a quid rental i think.

    Nope the dvd is just the normal 190mins version Not the extended 212mins version ......... From dvdfile......The DVD presents the "short" version of the movie as it played theatrically, which clocks in at a piddling 190 minutes. For its Special Expanded Edition laserdisc release, Lawrence Kasdan reinserted a number of brief scenes into the film, bringing the running time up to 212 minutes. The extra footage clarified some small story details, but did not solve the jumpy narrative structure of the film and was not enough to fix all of its problems. Most of these scenes are offered as a supplement on Disc 2 of the DVD.


    Admittedly these scenes arent really important But they should still be included in the film and not as deleted scenes.

    Its not great but is worth a view if you like war movies - make sure you get the Directors cut 22 minutes of new footage as that does feature a number of improvements (more violence/gore and better character devlopment)
