    Anyone know just how much extra/different there will be between the two edits?

    Also, is it worth waiting for the 4disk set or should I order the 2 disk directors cut?

    Regards

    HI Desticado,

    The only cut of "Pearl Harbour" I want to see, is the one where the director slices his throat. :devil:

    However, seriously though, let me say this.

    The new, longer Director's Cut of PH is actually very similar to the standard version seen in cinemas and on UK DVD/VHS. The only difference, will be the inclusion of approximately 4-5 minutes of footage considered too gory for a PG-13 certificate in the US, which would have rated the film a more restrictive "R" certificate.

    At a guess, I presume that the footage will be things like war wounds, sights of people being bombed/killed, etc, etc.

    To be honest, unless you really, REALLY love the film, you may as well stick to the current release, and just forget about this so-called "Directors' Cut".

    Never has a film less-deserved this title, than "PH". Does 5 minutes of slightly gory footage, really count as a true Director's Cut of a movie?! Well, with Jerry Bruckheimer behind it, I guess it must! Sheesh! :rolleyes:

    Pooch

    Wow...

    An extra 4-5 mins of footage where americans are being bombed & cut for their own arrogance at believing 'it could never happen to us we're american...."


    Makes it almost worth owning for that alone.....


    ;) ;) ;)
