The Mask Workprint
Time
you could edit the DVD picture (and the DVD's Viking and Newspaper deleted scenes) over most of this and get something more watchable.

Oh, gods, no. Never. Better not to release anything than create such unwatchable and pointless hybrids.

Judging by the caps, the quality is perfectly normal and very watchable for a VHS of a workprint. It looks exactly as I thought it would.

Phineasbg/ HIGHLANDER II: Extended Versions
Time
This is a terrible film, of course, but there is something that deserves a reedition - the real Highlander... A release that would combine the different features from the currently existing ones and add some new ones. For example, the two versions of the script. The early version is quite an interesting read - it's strange to see the opening at a porn cinema, the famed tagline existing as "There can be BUT one", the character of "Richard Taupin, alias Conor McLeod" sobbing "I'm the last. Oh Christ, I'm the last one! I can't stand it. Oh God, I can't stand it! The scream of your blood. The shriek of trees. Stop it!" or another character by the name of "Juan Cid Romirez" crying "Oh, Santa Maria! Madonna!", as he gets slashed to pieces by the never-named villain that would become Kurgan...

The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Director's Cut
Time
Strange as it may seem, if this gets made, it would be very interesting to see the castrated "producer's version" included as a "bonus feature", too. (The dubbed and cut one from USA, with new voices, etc.)

That has been done for example with "Brazil" on the official DVD - there's an extra disc with a weird US version which is cut so much it would make Beria and Stalin wince, and which has an idiotic "happy ending".
