That’s really not the place for this.

Sorry about that.

Working on many edits, may take many years to complete…

People getting offended over a fucking animated film need to get their priorities straight.

People have been getting offended since 1934 when Betty Boop had to tone down her act. 😉

And language!

The Godfather Part III in theaters originally ran at 162 minutes, but for all home video releases a 170 minute “final director’s cut” (it says this only on the VHS cover even though DVD and blu-ray versions are the same) was created while the 162 minute version never made available on home video at least in the US (idk about international home video releases)

That could possibly qualify on this list even though I can’t find any comparisons on any website.

Can you get me a source? If you can’t find one, I’ll put it there anyway, but I don’t want to edit it twice 😁

first of all here’s an IMDB link:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099674/alternateversions?tab=cz&ref_=tt_trv_alt

on this link right before it goes into the video and audio quality reviews it says: “As in all home video releases to date, though not specified and oddly never rerated by the MPAA, Part III is presented exclusively in a director’s cut running nine minutes longer than the theatrical edit.”
https://www.dvdizzy.com/thegodfatherpartIII.html

and here’s another link I found regarding another third version being made and the director’s cut being mentioned
https://www.movie-censorship.com/news.php?ID=14670

here’s a picture of the original VHS cover
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41Uc%2B4RjsQL.SX425.jpg

here’s one final link mentioning the director’s cut of 3
https://theasc.com/ac_magazine/May2008/PostFocus/page1.html

to quote: “After working through The Godfather and Part II, the team turned to the much more recent Part III (1990), which required no restoration at all; they did a digital intermediate (DI) to create the director’s cut, a version that previously existed only on home video.”

Alien
“-As the sun rises over LV-426, three helmet lights (representing the astronauts) have now been added, as they make their way round a large rock formation (for the 2010 Blu-ray).
-The CGI mist that drifts past the derelict entrance as the three astronauts enter, is now missing from the 2010 Blu-ray.
Alternate take used for the insert shot of the Alien, just before Brett is attacked (for the 2010 Blu-ray).” -Slavicuss

Has anyone checked the recent 4K release?

I believe these have been talked about on other threads but…

Revenge of the Nerds:
DVD & Blu omits scene of nerds walking to rental house.

All the Right Moves:
Bluray re-framed shot to cut some of the nudity out

Johnny Be Good:
DVD & Blu cuts scenes of nudity throughout the film

When Summer Lovers (Daryl Hannah, Peter Gallagher and Valerie Quennessen) went to DVD
Valerie Quennessen’s scene of her laying naked in the sun on her villa wall was cut and replaced with a view out to sea. The VHS version was uncut.

I know Grease has been added already, but there is more to it. The 20th anniversary 1998 5.1 remix of Grease had all of the songs remixed (like adding reverb and background vocals to a couple of the songs) and added a bunch of foley sound effects. This was the only mix available for 20 years. The 40th anniversary 5.1 remix restores the original sound mix and sounds far better than the previous 5.1 mix.

That’s been talked about a bit here.

Do the Right Thing got the color grading fixed on the Criterion Blu-ray disc release, correct?

Yes, along with eliminating all of the severe DNR and sharpening that plagued the old Universal release

Disney+ edits to movies/TV shows:

Adventures in Babysitting: Some lines from the TV edit have made their way into this streaming version; namely, the word “homo” is replaced by “weirdo”, and “fuck” is replaced by “fool”.

The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin: This is a somewhat obscure Western film starring Roddy McDowall. I’ve never seen it, but apparently, some racial slurs have been erased.

Free Solo: Another film I’ve never seen. The phrase “fucked up” is replaced by “messed up”. “Goddamn” is also taken out of a TV documentary in a later scene.

Gravity Falls: Season 1 episodes have mysteriously removed the symbol on Grunkle Stan’s fez. This was apparently an edit made for overseas countries that somehow made it onto our version of the streaming service.

Hannah Montana: For whatever reason, a Season 2 episode has a character’s name changed from “Isis” to “Ice”. Despite this, another character named “Isis” in an episode of Even Stevens has not been altered.

Splash: The most infamous of all the edits. All instances of nudity have been blurred out, cropped, or covered by CGI hair.

There are more examples I didn’t mention, and possibly more that nobody has discovered yet. Are any of you guys brave enough to look for more?

I can’t believe a paid streaming service is censoring movies and tv shows. Apparently Hamilton will be censored as well. So there’s no indication these are edited? (No “this film has been modified…” before it?)

If there isn’t, Disney just left themselves open to some very painful lawsuits.

Santa Clause also edits out the 1-800 Spank Me scene, this originated on the DVD release but other certain streaming versions oddly enough restored the scene.

Lilo and Stitch used the UK edit of the scene where Lilo hides in a pizza box instead of the dryer

The Simpsons episode Stark Riving Dad is left off due to the Michael Jackson cameo, though I believe unfortunately this was done in all streaming sites (stemming possibly from the “documentary” HBO aired Leaving Neverland)

Back to the Future II: not necessarily a digital alteration but definitely a visual one.

The original: featuring “Coming Summer 1990”, as seen at the end of the theatrical and home video versions, including the Blu-ray:

original

Removed from the version shown in recent years by ITV (UK) and the “BTTF Part III” logo also appears to have been altered from the original.

HDTV

This is an alteration, but I don’t think this is a recent change. It was actually more recently that the “Coming Summer 1990” was restored after years of it not having been included. I first became aware of it on the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray set and corresponding DVD set. It was not present on the 2002 DVDs or any previous VHS release I have ever seen. I believe it appeared in theaters this way and then was removed for it’s initial video release which is how it remained until 2011.
