Help: looking for... Harry Potter extended cuts
Time
There's no difference between the US/International cuts. All that happened was the actors did an alternate take to compensate the American audiences. I too have an old bootleg, the first one I bought in fact (And it's on 2 VCD'S - Nasty) and I can confirm that it isn't on there.

I'm in the UK too and would love these discs - plus I don't mind paying it forward.

It's also somewhat interesting to note that the scene isn't even mentioned on the IMDB page, while all the other missing scenes are. I just put it down to a sloppy scene. It seems rough anyway and there's a fair bit of background noise as well. In reality it's a badly edited sequence, nothing more.

Help: looking for... The Missing 'Raiders of The Lost Ark' Scene...
Time
Actually you're wrong - if anything the Franchise will be ruined with Lucas now taking co-writer duties. Frank Darabont turned in a draft that had Ford and Spielberg genuinely excited, but Lucas wanted more action. Ford and Spielberg have both spoken on it a few times since and still seem pretty downbeat about it all. Darabont even severed all ties with Lucas (Someone who he once idolised) over the whole thing.

Bear in mind Lucas hates the Indy vs guy with the whip scene, and has been trying to convince Spielberg to change it ever since.

theredbaron's Episode I: The Phantom Menace Screenplay Rewrite.
Time
As a budding screenwriter it's always good to read someone else's work(!?). And It's a nice little twist on the 'fan edit' thing. But am I the only person who felt that the script was stronger than the actual movie? It's odd but I've read the script and enjoyed it - but I've only ever seen the movie once (Opening day) and thankfully, my memories of that film are happy ones (I actually remember very little apart from the 'big' scenes).

Maybe it's just me then.

So why exactly is the film listed as 4x3 on the DVD and on the Anchorbay site, yet the review says it's Anamorphic. Even on the dvdfile page under 'Disc features' it lists one version as Widescreen and the other as 4x3.


EDIT: After looking at another review it turns out that the Theatrical version was both Anamorphic AND Full Frame. Why the hell would they do that? Bugger, I regret selling my old disc now, particulary seeing as it has the better transfer of all the versions.
