    Normally, I don't watch movies on Movie Networks (FX, Starz, etc.), but I hear some channels edit parts of the film to censor or to make space for commercial breaks.

    Which film have you seen on a Movie Network Channel that edited it very badly, and how?

    In the Pineapple Express, they changed "You're an a**hole!" to "You're a casserole!"

    Yeah, there's video of that on Youtube. I find it offensive when networks edit any Widescreen movies into Fullscreen format. It looks terrible and you're literally seeing less of the movie in every single frame. It's one thing for networks to do it, but how so-called "Premium" channels like HBO can get away with charging people to see about 70% of horribly distorted images taken from films is beyond me. Kudos to USA, SciFi (usually), and TCM for showing films in their original aspect ratio.

    I'll just leave this here...

    FX editing the transformers movies makes them look even more jumpy and hard to follow then I thought it could ever be. Widescreen movies should never be converted to Full screen.

    Then theres the petty censorship. Like getting rid of Bumblebee pissing on Simmons and Starscream being around at the end of the nemesis scene. If FX can't fit the entire movie in there then they shouldn't bother running it.

    The most hilarious one has got to be the Fox TV edit of Die hard 3.

    I recall watching UHF on Comedy Central in the late 90s, and was kinda shocked by everything they took out. If you remember the movie, there's a scene where Wierd Al's character goes to save the Michael Richards character, and when he runs out to do it, they do a huge parody of Rambo. Well, when it goes in to do the transition from the "real world" to Rambo, they just transition to the scene back in the real world AFTER the entire Rambo scene. That was honestly the best scene in the movie, and it wasn't some quick thing, it was actually several minutes long.

    I also tried watching "Coming to America" in the early 90s on a network TV station, and let's just say they pretty much had to redub the whole thing with a new voice cast.

    These days I utterly refuse to watch "Back To The Future" on network television. The entire early sequence involving the plutonium and the Libyans is borderline incomprehensible now because of someone broadcasting prude's fear of just the mention of terrorists...as if pretending they don't exist in the movie is going to make them go away in real life.

    Any Die Hard, on any tv network. I remember several times in Die Hard 2 there are entire scenes where it's dubbed by someone who sounds NOTHING like Bruce Willis.

    "Yippe kay-yay, melon farmer!"

    Oh yeah, and what's the point of Showgirls on TBS?

    Next time you are flipping through your guide and see either Goodfellas, Casino, Scarface or Pulp Fiction on basic cable (usually A&E, AMC or Bravo), give them a watch. :lol

    I remember watching Star Trek a while ago (I think it was channel 4) and they completely cut out Pike's interrogation scene. What the hell?? I also remember watching Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Wererabbit on holiday in America and for some reason they kept calling Gromit's marrow a melon, although there must be some important reason for that

    That was clearly a bad choice to put an NC-17 rated movie onto a channel that has to censor it.
    The Departed shouldn't have been on FX either. They pretty much had to dub over the entire movie.

    Here in the UK, ITV have a version of Beverley Hills Cop that they show during the day - they have to edit so much out it loses around 20 minutes from the overall length!
