: Well as for me, I was just getting into the movie itself. The story line. With the big screen I am back to noticing the odds and ends of the filming. "Where was that?, I remember that day?", and of course, "Boy, did they miss that by a mile". The canvas rock! I can't believe I missed that, it was really bad. As for me, I am sorry, but I saw it though the eyes of someone who was there. Now I am back to where I was 6 years ago. I will never get the emotion out of it like the rest of you do. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I have seen it on the big screen a total of 30 some times, but it has been some time since the last. I was reminded of just how much I enjoyed making it and just how much work we did. I really wish a directors cut would be put out. So many hours of hard work, so many good scenes were cut out.
I will agree with you as to how much MORE of the rock was drapped with canvas than is apparent on my video...(it looked awful on the big screen). when we walked by those rocks, or through them, I really couldn't see why they needed to be draped; except to close in the rocks for a more tunnel effect. Now they are building that staircase around them; so maybe there was something else yet again there six years ago.
Ah, yes , the colors were magnificent; the night scenes one could actually see.
