I'm glad they finally postponed the UK Hitchcock set -- they seemed to be taking so long I was worried they were going to blithely carry on regardless.

As for the Harry Potter f'up, it's unfortunate, but (if the timescales they quote in their replies turn out to be correct) they're responding to it very quickly and with thorough fixes.

Which just leaves Disney...

I believe that Universal were responsible for fixing Gladiator which they did that exchange for when first off they used that crap master with the missing arrows in flight etc. They owned the master which was used by both themselves in Europe and Dreamworks in North America.

Probably helped as Ridley Scott must have pushed them to fix it.

Surely Disney are in trouble with the BBFC as what they have sold is NOT what they rated ?
Okay it is more censored than what BBFC passed at 12 for home viewing, but its still illegal to sell a version which have not been rated.

You have to get recertified even for something like changing the studio logo at the start.

Okay Disney can just sent theo censored disk to the BBFC and say rate this, where it will be passed uncut 12, but they must do that to make it legal.
