So it looks like a v2 is going to happen then. I guess there's no point in burning a disc of the current version now.
I have one request for your future release: have better explanations for the different versions.
While the current Overdose, Doctor's Orders, etc. is cute, I find it hard to remember the differences when getting ready to watch it.
Back in February, I did say that if enough people disliked the multiple aspect ratio presentation, then I wouldn't mind going the overcropping route for version 2.0. However, there has been next to no real criticism of the film's presentation and so there's no real need for V2.0. Of course, that doesn't mean I haven't thought about working on V2.0. As you know from all of your fine work, nothing is ever really perfect for us fan editors and preservationists, especially when we aren't given an entire movie or its deleted footage on a silver platter. Naturally there's a small list of improvements I'd like to make to the Primitive Screwhead Edition, but they're so minor that only me and maybe three other people would notice them.
Now if the SciFi channel were to somehow get a HD transfer of the tv cut, then I would be all over it. I think it's possible given that the tv cut of Ace Ventura was recently given a new HD transfer. I mean, who saw that coming? Hopefully all the studios will see the benefit of creating new HD transfers of old tv cuts like this one in order to maximize their profits from advertisers - after all, a longer movie means more commercial breaks. So if this was to happen, then I would definitely create a V2.0 and I would probably add some flashier, more descriptive menus, and possibly create some special features. But until then, I'm content to just help out with other Army of Darkness projects and spend most of my time finishing school.
