Idea: TOTAL RECALL (1990) - UNCUT Version Reconstruction
Time

Okay, pal running time is about 108 to 109 minutes. Same version as the normal 113 minutes ntsc version.

The cut version in germany had a runtime of 106 minutes in PAL.

No country so far got the unrated lost cut.

The normal us rated-r Version was not for sell in public (not banned, just considered harmful for youth) so in regular stores people just could get the cut version. You had to get the uncut (rated r) version on stores just for adults,and online stores.

Few years ago the movie got removed from the list of considered harmful media, and was re-rated by the FSK.
The movie got a rating of 16,but because of bonus features there is the red 18 rating on front. But now the uncut (compared to us r-rated) could be sold in normal stores, so the big “Uncut” is on that fro t as a selling point.

The German “uncut” mostly is regarding original theatrical releases. Often seen when movies also got cut releases for younger target groups.

A supposedly “Uncut” german dvd release. The runtime is listed as 109 minutes, and I see other PAL releases listed at 103 minutes… Not sure what to make of it, probably bogus. I can’t imagine that there is 6 minutes of additional footage.

I’ve got the original LD release, I’ll have a look at that, I thought for sure it showed Benny’s chest and the drill, but not any of the other clips mentioned.

Uncut German is normal us version… It was strongly cut in Germany back in times.
And comparing 109 minute HD BD with a 103 minute DVD… It’s just the same… PAL just runs faster than ntsc and 1080p.

Info: Analog Releases of Films That Contain Deleted, Extended, & Alternate Footage That've Never Been Released on DVD/BluRay

The old German VHS of „Nightmare on Elm Street“ contained the Unrated Version with some extended footage of Tina‘s death (blood splashing when she falls from the ceiling and an additional shot of her body).

The German VHS of Hitchcock‘s „Psycho“ also had some alternate/additional material: A shot where Marion takes off her bra, alternate footage of Norman‘s bloody hands after he cleaned up the mess in the bathroom and Arbogast is stabbed three or four times instead of just once. It also has an alternate shot of Sam‘s letter to Marion where the text is written in German.
Unfortunately the shower scene is cut in these German tapes, only old TV-airings included the full uncut version.

Now this uncut version is available (only) in Germany on Blu-Ray.

Where? Which release? How to get? Bootleg?
Edit: oh, I see, “Psycho” … Not nightmare on elm street… 😦

Hey, TheHutt, something I haven’t noticed before, any reason why the movie is window boxed, shouldn’t it take up a full 4x3 monitor on my PC? Also, the end credits for both parts are “jumpy/ interlacey” was the original laser disc like that?

it’s window-boxed because 16x9 televisions are the norm

it’s 4:3 picture in a 1:78.1 container

Yeah, I just thought it would have the bars only on the sides, not top and bottom.

You have a 4:3 monitor?

Terminator 2 JP SqueezeLD Laserdisc Rip - Different (possibly original?) Color Timing
Time

The Squeeze Edition is a Japanese laserdisc release for some movies.
It is literally an anamorphic LaserDisc release with the whole 1.33:1 formatted video being used, but stretched, as with Anarmophic Widescreen DVDs. So they need to be Squeezed to fit on the old format.

Only Japan had such releases.
There where two different squeeze LDs for Terminator 2,the first one had a not processed color timing, the second one has the known color timing.

I think on lddb.com you may find cover artwork images of both releases, because they did not share the same cover design.

Blood Simple - original cut

The end credits have “The Same old Song”… Did not find the jukebox scene…

Edit: jukebox has the same old song, too.
It is the Theatrical Cut… On the ildnukd DVD…

Which DVD release are you referring to exactly?

The theatrical cut should have a run-time of approximately 99 minutes, edited versions about 96 minutes.

The first UK DVD release:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00004W4H4/

It is PAL, so the running time is 4% reduced, due to its 25fps speed-up.

Info & Help Wanted: Looking into preserving a 16mm print of Pixar's 'Knick Knack'
Time

Would love to see that, too.
But, being a film print does not need to be the original version. I have a print of the edited Version. Well, it is not 16mm, but 35mm.

IIRC, somewhere was said that they made an error on the first squeeze LD release: they forgot to grade the colors. I think somewhere was stated that James Cameron was not amused.

Its not the intended way to watch T2 sure, and I don’t have a problem with the original movie (one of my favorites ever), but in my opinion it’s nice to see a more varried color pallete throughout

That’s for sure.
I also would love to get the link. I have the LD myself, and got it ripped, but each side one file, and having one file version would be nice.
Which audio track did you rip? The digital track is said to be really powerful on that disc.
