Thanks as usual Salty. None interest me. I'm kicking myself I didn't pre-order Drive BD though.

It's a great movie and often overlooked next to Scarface (which is better). I've already got the HD-DVD.

Hero is tempting... but I can't remember how bad the Miramax changes were.

think they left this one untampered...only problem with this disc is 5.1 only for the mandarin but unless you can decode hd audio not an issue really.

Yeah, not too bothered about the HD audio. 5.1 is good enough for me.

I was sure Miramax changed something...

EDIT: From what I could gather Miramax added an opening text explaining the story's historical context, changed the meaning of one key subtitle ("all under heaven" becomes "our land") and the cry of "hail" from soldiers becomes "storm"(!). Apart from that I think the US version is the same as the HK theatrical cut. Have I missed anything?

Personally I'm not interested because it's the theatrical cut. I prefer the director's cut.

It appears that the extended 108m print isn't actually the director's cut at all (that was to be roughly 2hrs in length) and that the additional footage presented within is mostly padding. Many who've seen both versions prefer the tighter theatrical cut...

or are at least ambivalent about the extensions...

Anyone here comment? Brad have you seen both versions?

I didnt know that. I'm sure I remember at the time the HK DVD came out, reading Yimou's cut was about 20 minutes longer than the TC, then we got the Extended version which was about 10 minutes longer.
I havent seen the EC yet :oops:

It's £10.95 now. That was quick.

I wasn't sure if it was a Director's Cut but thought it was.

The consensus when it came out was the Extended Cut is better. I used to own the Edko Theatrical Cut but now own the Edko Extended Cut. It's not wildly different, more subtle changes to the tone and the odd minor plot point alteration. Both cuts are good. I remember preferring the Extended Cut though. I'd possibly pick up the Theatrical Cut Blu-ray but not that Miraxmax editon, the fact they gave Mandarin DD5.1 and English DTS-HD MA 5.1 stinks of contempt.

I cannot play lossless but the DTS core in DTS-HD MA is of a higher quality to DD5.1 and everyone who can play DTS, can also play that but I mostly don't want it because it stinks of contempt.

Is there an HK BD of the Theatrical Cut? I thought all UK BDs were the Miramax version.

There's no HK BD to my knowledge, I didn't say there was :). I was talking generally when I said "that Miraxmax edition".

Let's not talk crap here,you could put the Miramax release in front of Brad and tell him it's the extended version and he'd nod in agreement.This is a wannabe film reviewer who couldn't remember the end of There Will Be Blood days after watching it.
