Hello, I don't get why they have extended editions or "the version that was never shown in the cinema".

People buy it thinking that it's going to be better or more violent or whatever but then when you finally watch it, it's the EXACTLY the same film you saw at the cinema.

At least put more into it if that's what the cover is promising. If it's extended put the deleted scenes back into the film and have a documentary as a special feature.

What I don't get is when they say it's a longer cut of the film (Director's Cut) then have the deleted scenes as a special feature.

With the LORD OF THE RINGS dvds at least they got it right with the extended editions, the length of the films were a lot longer with the deleted scenes put back into it.

An example of this uncut version/more violent and people buy it thinking that it's going to be better or more violent or whatever but then when you finally watch it, it's the EXACTLY the same film you saw at the cinema is THE UNBORN.

I bought that in a sale and the dvd said UNSEEN EDITION so I thought yes more gore, more scares, more possession etc then when I watched it it was the same.

I'm sure there will be others like this. Please give your examples.

So all i'm saying is if it's going to be an uncut more gore then ever before edition then put the deleted scenes back in it and make it longer.

Thank you for reading

    There was a time when extended edition or director's cut actually meant something,especially im the early to mid 90's with the popularity of laserdisc,The Abyss and T2 being prime examples.Nowadays,more often than not,it's just a marketing tool used to generate a few more sales.
