Thatīs no excuse to erase posts we spent our time writing about.
The Anchor Bay/Blue Underground has been compared countless times and I donīt see you saying nothing regarding that.

OK, letīs concentrate on the Arrow disk.
Some pages back I asked some simple questions regarding some technical specs but none of them were answered.

At the end of the day, itīs our money...

Donīt get mad, itīs just an opinion.
The Blue Underground COTLD Doesn't have the unfair advantage of being uncut over the Arrow disc.
The Inferno comparison has.
On a website that Arrow is one of the major contributors,don't you think that's just a tad too cheeky?

Neither a cynic nor being negative. Simply pragmatic and familiar with the way the BBFC operate.

If Arrow had strong evidence to prove that the BBFC was incorrect in making the cut - for example evidence that it was faked, not cruel, or not staged for the film (such as it being stock footage from a documentary or similar) - then I would even have strongly urged them to appeal over it. As it is I can't see any reason for the BBFC to waive it.

Ditto for Profondo Rosso.

Common sense? Or is that asking a bit too much?!

I thought I should let you all know that I have recently completed a new restoration of this excellent documentary, using far superior quality film clips throughout, all in their correct aspect ratios.
That's brilliant news, I always thought the clips looked horrendous & with the coloured box effect too, this (hopefully) will be a great release & (hopefully) a big seller for Arrow...even better if "Mousegate" gets sorted with the folks at the BBFC

To the BBFC the Animals Act is more important.

That's the point though, the Animals Act doesn't apply to home video. Hmm, if only someone would tell them that...

They are fully aware of it and conferred with the Home Office about it years ago. Their full response can be read on WWDVD.

We can't assume anything will change but very well done and many thanks to everyone on here for their reasoned and well-written letters and good on the BBFC for having another look.

At least we can't say that we didn't all try eh?
That's fantastic news. Lets hope they change their minds on the cut.

It would be a shame if a good release was hampered by being cut for...well nothing.

A few nights ago our cat killed a moth and ate it in front of me. I carefully binned the (indigestible) wings afterward. I didn't feel the need to censor it for doing what comes naturally.
