    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yup. Get rid of the stupid voiceovers, lose the namby pamby "they lived happily ever after" ending, and leave us wondering whether Deckard is a replicant. It brought the film much closer to Philip K. Dick's dystopianism.

    Only one cut had the voiceovers, which I actually liked. Anyone know which one and whether it's available on DVD? I had it on VHS many moons ago.

    Yeah but I could have sworn there was some sort of extended cut that had the voiceovers too. So many damn BR cuts it's hard to keep up.

    +1 on the Brazil director's cut though, amazing.

    I've heard that, but I really disliked the theatrical release. I will try to give it a go, anyway, because that's what everyone tells me.

    But we're veering a little off topic.

    laid low this past Halloween. completely subconsciously, ended up choosing a horror/drama movie to watch. it was one i had seen before but for some reason, the second time around was just brutal. i had to fast forward through the father/daughter scenes. Korean revenge drama, I Saw The Devil. highly recommended. after the heel scene, i decided that Choi Min-sik is an acting genius as far as i'm concerned.

    and yes, i'm fairly certain that i will watch Oldboy again relatively soon.

    Well...
    In the novel, it's perfectly clear almost as soon as the question is raised that he isn't.


    I have that still. Don't think it was ever on DVD. There were seven total cuts, but most were different international cuts. I didn't like the voiceover at all, but it's all cool. I can see how noir fans would.
