Argh! You obviously know me too well…I get bugged horribly by all the lack of fidelity from over loud commercials to bad broadcast audio-but especially the poor recording of many youtube uploads.

I don’t know if things are better now, but back when I used to upload the Kitty Half-Time videos, YouTube was very picky about what was and wasn’t “high def”. I couldn’t find info on exactly what minimum resolution your videos had to be, but YouTube decided that my capture card’s raw output wasn’t high enough, and would automatically upload it all as 240p =|

Mad Max Fury Road

Without the Dialogue you miss a lot of the culture of “that world” and no Mad Max film has ever been silent before.

A good portion of Mad Max 2 is silent.

I’m sure I’ll check out Fury Road in silent mode at some point (provided it’s a separate audio track as promised), but I’m indifferent towards the idea. Seeing it in Black & Chrome is what I’m really pumped about. I bet it’ll look awesome that way, and as good as the theatrical release was, I was already pretty tired of Orange & Teal at that point.

Has anyone ever done a theatrical cut of The Explorers (River Phoenix/ Ethan Hawke)?
Time

If there was a third act scripted, it wasn’t in the script they used for the book.

The only major scene omission is the birthday party. The overdubbed scene of the kids at the tree in the rain is a little bit longer in the book, but they did a decent job with it in the finished film.

For those interested, I did a writeup about the book a while back: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089114/board/nest/39489468?p=1

It’s kind of hard to define a “theatrical cut” of this film though, since there was more than one cut, wasn’t there?

What I really want is a director’s cut…but I’m not sure if that will ever happen =(

Just to clarify, the version I had on tape (not sure if it was HBO, may have been Showtime) included the scene of the tilt-a-whirl part rolling down the hill, and also the dream scene near the end where the Thunder Road shows up in Ben’s classroom. It did not have the scene of Ben and Wolfgang walking to school.

I used to, but not anymore. As far as I can remember, both of the deleted scenes on the USA DVD were in the movie.

Edit: Actually…isn’t there an extra scene of Ben before he gets punched in the nose? I can’t remember if that’s on the DVD or if it was just in the book. Anyway, that scene wasn’t in the HBO version.
