"...64% is a pretty small number when one considers that a Director's Cut is usually geared for a targeted audience...one already pre-disposed to liking the film. ...one might think that the percentage would be larger in favor of the film ... "
Thanks for making that point.
I'm with Marcia (as you know!), as I was when the DVD first came out. But oh well... I tend to think of Michael Mann as a sort of cinematic genius, except for this DVD. My opinion is, he lost a couple marbles, here.
And hey, just to irritate the wound a bit more, when Gladiator comes out on DVD in November, there will be at least 4 never before seen scenes, AND a 20-minute video montage of clips that fell to the cutting room floor, set to the film's stirring music. Now THAT's a proper 'director's cut' DVD!!!
Hi, everyone....hope you're all gettin' along fine.
Just got done going through the 2000 Gathering pages, and was brought to tears several times. Nice to see some familiar faces. Looks like it was wunnerful!
