Hanging by a Thread? No, Arrow confirmed it's going to be a different disc for US and UK. They did the region code thing with the Seijun Suzuki set that featured "animal cruelty" (region B player plays a censored version, region A player uncensored) but they can't publish "child porn" in the UK with the excuse of it being region coded. They'd probably be in prison for that.

Does anyone have Samurai Reincarnation (1981) in their possession with the English dub? I'd appreciate if someone could check the "God will be cut" line and post it here word to word. It should be around 90 minutes into the film in the uncut 2 hour version (a lot earlier in the 88 min US version), spoken by Tetsuro Tamba after he has finished the sword, just after he collapses.

Wikipedia says "If you should encounter God, God will be cut." but I'd like to have a confirmation if that's exactly what's on the English dub or not?

I think a Buddhist proverb is used here. "If you meet a buddha, kill him." The point is that the true buddha is inside you.

It's actually approximately at 1:24:43-1:24:49 on the R1 US DVD that runs 2:00:22. The exact line is: "Master Jubei... If you encounter God, God will be cut."

That's odd! I have the HK IVL DVD which runs 2:01:37 and the scene plays at 1:31:40

At 1:24:43 there's the scene with Chiba and Sanada by the river.

Many thanks! I was asking because there are so many slightly different versions of the line... the one in Japanese in Samurai Reincarnation is a bit different from the one in Japanese in Kill Bill, and then there are all the English translations of both, and the English dub, too.
