I'm still waiting to find someone in the UK willing to loan me a copy so I can finally watch it. Having seen the "comedy" version, I can't wait to see if all those awful FX are straight from the movie. There must be someone here willing, (desperate), to get the DVD out of their house. Personally, I think someone should give the comedy guys some cash to do a full 90 minute version of the film, using all the "classic" moments. LOL

I decided that I don't see the point of this. From what Charles said, they've just cut out some of the walking scenes and stuff and I gather there has been little (if any) work on the FX. The people who want this movie have it now and it should just be left to whatever fate such movies have fall upon them. I've always thought of 'Director's Cuts' as usually containing NEW footage that was not used for timing or other reasons, the Director's original vision, if you like. Not a half-assed attempt to make a film better by cutting it down and doing little else with it. Pointless.
''There's this fella.. he goes into this pub and he goes.. you know.. AAAAAAAAAAHHH!!'' Phil Lynott's first (and last) stand up gig.
Pointless is the word. If Hines was such a big fan he would have given the film more of a makeover than that. It can't all be about money.
I get the impression that this film has been deliberately made right from the start with as little cost and effort as possible. This ain't no labour of love!
If Hines was a 20 year veteran of commercial and industrial filmmaking then he must surely know a bit about making films and he must have known surely that what he's brought out wasn't what fans were expecting.
HEY SPIELBERG! Nice tripods....... SHAME ABOUT THE REST OF THE FILM!

Had anyone seen this new Director's cut yet?
