: : I honestly don't know if I'll ever watch the video again!
: : I feel fairly certain that my opinion will be the minority one, overall, amongst die-hard fans ... I hope not.. Newcomers to the film, though, would have to love it!
: Rich... I'm with you 100%!!!!!
: everything you have said I agree with. It's hard to be too specific because I've only seen the dvd once... except the end which I rewatched about five times.
: but I loved Hawkeye just staring Duncan down after "I'll have you beaten from this fort!!"
: ...just everything is better...
: i'm stuck here at school with my VHS version...but I don't really want to watch it now after seeing the DVD...
: I have to wait till Christmas break to watch my brothers at his house!!
: again though... the end is the biggest improvement... particularly the last line... and the use of the music.
: A)they needed to cut that scene of Hawkeye hugging Cora ... it just didn't flow right at all
: B)in the vhs version, after chingachgook was done speaking...the music was soft.. to let you absorb what he just said... but it was never emotional enough... i was always waiting for something else to happen.... and what I got was the closing credits
: now.... chingachgook gives that killer last line, and the music immediately kicks in at full force...no time for you to absorb anything... there is just this wave of emotion and music that kocks you back in your seat...
: as far as sloppy editing... I saw none at all. the movie ran perfectly
Couldn't agree more, Ben! "Killer last line ..." - that it is.
Didn't see poor, jerky editing either.
We'll have our detailed *review* up on Sunday. Meanwhile, keep these ALL coming. Very interesting ...
