When's the review due? Is this any good? Wasn't particularly a fan of the first film, am hoping that this is a return to form. Director's Cut already?

The Blu-ray is released November 24th so I assume the DVD is released the same day. I've been promised the BD for review and look forward to seeing it as I missed the film on its theatrical run.

Review later this week, but before you get all excited, they sent me the rental disc to look at, with the theatrical cut and nowt else. You'll have to wait and see if it's any cop...

As for the Director's Cut, that's a misnomer. Way back when, when a movie came to video, the film might have a couple of extra scenes (Star Trek VI had the Scooby Doo ending), and I believe Fight The Future was slightly longer too. They never called it a Director's Cut or anyything. Now, it's like you're gettting a whole other movie, when all they do is pad it out a bit more.

And there was me thinking you'd have the full monty after the image upload overkill, lol.

There'll be another opinion along soon too! Only just noticed that it was the rental version though!

That's me convinced, cheers Rich. Now just need some time to watch it when it eventually gets here...
