The uncut release was by Warner Bros. in a pan n' scan master. This was utilized for the Dutch LD in PAL format and thus presumably for the Japanese Warner pan n' scan LD made at the same time likely from the same master in NTSC. I remember reading somewhere that this was the same identical uncut transfer but have been unable to find it again.
LDDB doesn't agree. I'm seeing a Japanese P&S release which coincides with the street date on the Dutch release (1990), but LDDB thinks its runtime is 133 minutes, compared to 139 on the Dutch release. That sucks if it's true, because I've always heard that PAL LD players are kind of crappy.
Awesome-can you check the TLD disc for the missing subtitle? Also if you have a receiver capable of playing back Dolby 5.1 EX, the TWINE disc is still unknown if it has this theatrical track or not.
Would you believe me if I told you that, to my great chagrin, the TLD disc is missing? I bought the box for literally a couple bucks off a friend who's not much of a collector (as evidenced by the fact that Moonraker and YOLT were missing altogether, cases and all), so I can check with him and see if he might have misplaced it.
In re: TWINE, the case claims that it's in "Dolby 5.1 Surround." In the setup menu, there are no alternate English soundtracks available. I can't actually confirm the 5.1 right now, but I should be able to somewhat soon. I'm not smart enough w/r/t sound stuff to know if 5.1 is different from 5.1 EX, but if it is, then no, TWINE doesn't even claim to have it. If not, then TWINE does claim to have it but I can't confirm it right now.
