Well, folks - finally seen it! And here is my 2 pennies worth....
I thought the extra footage was great - especially the courier scene and I also like the shots of DDL and MS leaving the Huron village. I didn't miss too many of the cut lines with the exception of "a breed apart" - an excellent line, what was MM thinking? Oh, and I really miss Clannad - I always loved that scene of the guys running up the slope to that beautiful haunting music. Guess I will just have to content myself with listening to the CD.
At first I thought that the ending should have been left as the line "for I am the last of the Mohicans" but I actually quite liked the new final line - so, the jury is out on that particular segment!
I just have to say that I saw the DVD on our new flat screen, wide screen, all singing, all dancing new Sony tv - and oh, what a joy that was! No more crackly, well worn video - replaced by a crystal clear picture showing every flowing lock, rippling muscle and .....ok, don't get me started!
Well, for what its worth I thought that MM would have done us all a favour if he had just added to the original and I would have liked to see THAT missing love scene. Ah, well - thank Heaven for the imagination!
PS Another question for you.....how is it that DDL jumps into the fountain five minutes after Chingachgook and yet manages to pop up on the rock ahead of him to help him out of the water?!
PPS My husband has started calling me a 'Mohican Trekkie' and I hate it!! Any suggestions for suitable responses to nip this in the bud!!!
