I was just reading a review of the DC over at dvdfile.com, and was a bit disappointed about a couple of things.
For one thing, the changes to the film don't simply include new scenes. There are also scenes/parts of scenes REMOVED.
One huge example:
( ****** This is a potential spoiler, so skip if you don't want to be spoiled *********)
The Clannad song is completely gone! I'm curious about how you all feel about this. I am crushed about it, I think it is one of the most powerful parts of the film.
Also, there are apparently no "major" new scenes added. The reviewer seemed to feel that the DC was mostly more non-dialogue "running around" type stuff (more or less his words, not mine).
Oh well, I am still glad it is FINALLY available on DVD, and I can listen to it in Dolby Digital. Here is the review from dvdfile.com, if you are interested (note, some of the review might make you cringe a bit, especially the reviewer's thoughts on history, but the review is interesting nonetheless):
: : And according to the other insert, here are the scenes which have additionl footage added:
: : The Cameron House
: : The New Major
: : The Scotsman's Daughter
: : The War Party
: : The Siege
: : Magua's Hate (one for Ros!)
: : A Run to Fort Edward
: : The Escape Plan
: : Lovers
: : Terms for Surrender
: : Magua's Pain (you go, Ros!)
: : The Defeated
: : Escape
: : Stay Alive...
: : Last of the Mohicans
: You lucky DOG!
: Sounds a lot like the version Ros has described!
: I can't see anyway that the film can be only 117 minutes with all that added ... UNLESS, it's as Mike said, and the new scenes are an "extra" segment ... that is, most are NOT within the film itself but added on as a trailer. Honestly, though, I have NO idea. I just can't wait to see this!
: My copy has not yet arrived, but I'm anxious to see your report(s) ... good or bad. Like I said once before, we ALWAYS have the original!!! No taking that from us!
