: 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):
Mike -- You're so right -- potentially dreadful news. "I Will Find You" gone? I love that part, very powerful. And if critical stuff is removed, then I have to seriously question the meaning of 'Director's Cut'!! But, I'll wait until some one of US has actually seen it -- after all, we know it better than anyone, as most of us have seen it fifty million times.
Thanks for the report.
