    Hey everyone;

    I'm thinking of starting up a petition to get them to release a re-edited version of the movie as a Director's Cut DVD in the hopes that we will get a version that isn't a jumbled mess with piles of plot holes. Don't get me wrong, I freakin' loved the movie. I just found that the editing was distractingly poor, and kinda ruined some parts.

    Give me your input.

    EDIT: my bad, i thought i posted this in the movie forum. mods, kindly shift it over :)  thanks!

    No, it's not. Online petitions do have their place though: in the recycle bin. Plus, what makes you think that there WON'T be a director's cut? They have pulled out all the stops for this one. These days there are always directors cuts.

    I've had a couple of petition ideas in the past, but, as proven before, they never work, ever. In before lock.

    They'll probably be a Directors Cut edition, released a year or two after the first release, so some people will buy the film twice; the film studios do this all the time.

    this petition is pretty ridiculous. i agree. what exactly make you think they won't release a director's cut?

    this isn't a petition, this is more like begging.

    And for that very reason alone I will not buy the initial dvd release. As much as I loved the movie...I will not be double dipping. The studios need to stop this little tactic. Once the Director's Cut or Ultimate edition is released, then I will buy it. I won't fall for that Special Edition crap either. :wink:

    there will be a regular edition, a collector's edition, director's cut, and right before the next movie there will probably be a "1.5" edition released that will probably be a hybrid of them all.

    I just hope we get completed deleted scenes, or scenes from the script that didn't make it, whatever, with full rendered effects and such, totally complete. That and a few commentaries, all I really care about from a DVD
