Okay. I think I’ll watch the theatrical first and then the director’s cut.

I can’t argue with this, though I will second Ash’s statement about the DC being the best cut. I actually haven’t watched the theatrical in a while since I watch the DC every time. Should go back to that some time.

My reasoning with watching the theatrical first is because it sounds like both cuts are great, the latter is just an improvement. So I might as well see it how it was originally first. I just wanted to make sure that it wasn’t like Bladerunner where there is very little reason other than curiosity to watch the theatrical cut.

I wasn’t saying that you shouldn’t watch the theatrical first, just agreeing that the DC is best.

If I love the movie then I’ll check out the SE too, but I hate studio meddling so I’ll save that one for last.

PLEASE DON’T

But really, the extended ending in the SE can potentially ruin the movie depending on how you feel about it. As a big fan of this movie, I actually regret watching that ending. I’d say just turn it off before the end.

I don’t know, if I really like the movie then my curiosity is going to get me to at least look up the ending. Even if I hated it I don’t think that it could ruin the movie for me. We’ll see.

Yeah listen to Ash on that. If you really like the movie and you don’t want to see what might happen after it ends, just don’t risk ruining it. Spielberg said that adding that ending was one of the biggest mistakes of his career.

He doesn’t even mind change, just so long as it doesn’t involve a woman.

This is an ignorant statement that ignores Warbler’s (poorly stated) point in favor of painting him as a sexist.

I agree with Warbler that making the Doctor a woman is stupid and the concept was most definitely used because it’s ‘fashionable’ right now. As far as I’m aware, there were never any references to this being possible in the whole of classic Who. The idea that regeneration can gender-swap is incredibly stupid. It doesn’t make any sense, even considering how little sense regeneration makes already.

That said, I don’t really care. I’m not going to sit here and complain about it endlessly because I don’t like watching current Doctor Who anyway. I lost interest during Capaldi’s first season when I just got tired of being constantly disappointed by terrible stories that make no sense. I actually stopped liking the show for the most part when Matt Smith came, but I kept watching because I still cared, and he grew on me a bit after a while. I’ll stick with Tom Baker and Peter Davison mucking about and acting like they’re in charge in a matter of fact way, rather than watch some guy proclaim that he can save the entire universe from destruction simply because he’s “The Doctor,” as if that makes him important somehow.

Hopefully that stupid cop won’t fuck you over.

Turns out he did. I’ll find out how bad exactly at the courthouse tomorrow after work. Assuming I don’t get pulled over on my way to or from and arrested on an open warrant.

I’m mostly pissed that it took over a week for anything to happen about it. I’d rather have woken up in the drunk tank and gotten the charges and bail part over with then.

Missed this before. Ya gotta stick it to 'em man!

May the Force be with you!

The only thing I removed in my edit is the handstand bit. I think it’s a bit too silly. The majority of my edit will be the Director’s Cut, and I will just be making some trims like this, with a few audio edits.

I won’t be putting in any TV cut scenes because of the SD quality drop, even though I was planning to use the exterior windmill scene before deciding against it.

I haven’t seen it in years. I don’t remember anything other than the music and the basic plot.

Spoils I guess…

When sleeping with her the umpteenth time and trying to have a conversation for once he shouts about how much he’s disgusted by the whole thing and that he isn’t in any way proud of it. He puts his clothes back on and wants to be done with it, but temptation grabs him by the ear when he looks at her pulling her nylons up, so he apologizes and so on.

How is that different from what I said?

You described the basic plot, not the subject of that specific scene. The scene isn’t about the affair just happening, that’s throughout the rest of the movie. The scene is about his internal struggle with the situation. He is aware of what he’s doing and he’s disgusted by it, but the sexual temptation is too strong for him to leave it behind. It gets the better of him. I wasn’t saying that it reminded me of that time I had an affair with an older woman, it was a figurative relation to the subject of the scene. Also see my previous response to DE if you didn’t see it.

Realizing that you’re doing something very wrong and getting out but then you catch your eye on something that turns you back around.

I tried watching Magnum Force afterward, but my interest was completely lost so I didn’t try to finish it. I think I’ll just leave this one alone as far as sequels go. Perfect all on it’s own.

True. I’ve seen all the sequels except The Enforcer (fell asleep watching it) and The Dead Pool; none of them live up to the original.

Yeah it honestly just felt so generic.

Fantastic little movie. The scene in the poster reminded me of my own personal battles, and it was real frustrating to watch him fall back into the trap. Not frustrating in a bad way, just my investment in the character. Also, while the movie did nothing wrong, I really hate listening to the over-dubbed version of The Sound of Silence. It ruins the song for me and I really don’t think it would’ve changed the film tonally to have the original version playing in those sequences, so it just bothers me. *shrug*


Director’s Cut. For being nearly two hours of penis jokes it was just as hilarious as anything else from Monty Python I’ve seen. I feel like that’s something most people couldn’t accomplish very well. And the opening short is something I saw as a child and hadn’t seen it for years, so seeing it again was a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.


This was really really great. Loved it. Hadn’t seen it yet for whatever reason, and I actually didn’t know much about it other than the famous “well do ya, punk” monologue. I tried watching Magnum Force afterward, but my interest was completely lost so I didn’t try to finish it. I think I’ll just leave this one alone as far as sequels go. Perfect all on it’s own.


Just wonderful. Can’t think of much else to say.

Hello everyone! I’ve completed a lot of work on this, and when it gets closer to being finished, I’ll get around to posting a finalized changes list (which won’t be very long). I’m posting now to ask for feedback from anyone who cares. This is my currently finished edit of the “Little Ashes” sequence, which had a couple of shots removed and had the music reinserted:

My sister and I were cleaning up the back porch, and a heavy piece of wood fell on one of our kittens. I think his neck was broken, but he’s still alive. There’s no money for a vet, so I don’t know what to do about him.

Goodness, that’s the kind of thing I’ve been paranoid about happening to one of my kittens. I’ll pray for the little fella.
