Didn't Alex Cox personally prepare the version of Repo Man for TV broadcast, though?

No reports filtering through of Verhoeven working with ITV2 of recent

Seemingly the TR cut footage was never reinstated. Would be good to see, mind.

This reminds me of a discussion I had with someone over at the AVF. He maintains that the version of From Dusk Till Dawn he had on Laserdisc was an "uncut" version. I had the exact same laserdisc, and I don't recall any extra bits. But he swears blind that it's "uncut" and that everyone else is wrong.

Didn't the uncut From Dusk Till Dawn once show up on bid-up TV?

Rubbish as they were never known until they were broadcast after, the broadcasts were then known.

As far as we the public know these were broadcasted as cinema versions and not with added footage until we knew after the event.

Yes, Alex did indeed prepare the version as part of the Moviedrome season but Directer Harold Becker did not supervise a showing of Sea of Love but was shown with footage not shown in cinemas or on dvd/video,so it is possible.

No, I was watching that too. But I missed the end because Michael Jackson popped round to use my bathroom.

I guess that is why the net is now packed full of downloads and Youtube links of this new long lost and never released Uncut version of Total Recall! ahh it all makes sense now!




Ohhh wait, it is not on any site anywhere in the world becuase it has never been shown or found anywhere.


Next you will be telling me Starship Troopers has been found uncut/pre pre cuts as well, which also never was even released, ever.

German Steelbook

Not sure if I can justify the £24 odd-quid + customs for it though.

or there could be a reason for that maybe NOBODY RECORDED IT when it was broadcasted as they thought

1.It was on ITV2 and and would be cut + adverts.

or

2.They already have the dvd version and were unaware that ITV2 screened it in another version.

Apparently, nobody else in the world watched that amazing broadcast on ITV2 either.

Being ITV2, that's not outside the realms of possibility.

Because they already have seen it or own their own version.

Oh come on, it was in the TV Times. I used to buy it and use it to decide which films to record - they always used to mention alternative and uncut versions of films I've still got that showing of Repo Man on tape somewhere. It was common knowledge the TV version of Sea of Love had additional footage for anyone who collected VHS back in the day.

You are the equivalent of that bloke who sits in the corner of the pub and tells people things like 'if you knock a policeman's hat off, he can't arrest you as he is out of uniform'.

Again your talking/typing rubbish

It was NOT common knowledge the TV version of Sea of Love had additional footage only after the screening it was common knowledge.

There are people with massive harddrives hooked up to tuners now and thousands of people will have that showing recorded on them.
For many reasons, ones like this.
Plenty of people who would have watched it would have noticed instantly it was the real uncut version and all they have to do is press a button and store that showing on their hard drives, and yet still nothing has popped up on the net yet.

I would be killing myself to get it online if I had noticed it on TV (and I would have noticed instantly as soon as I saw a new frame), so would countless others, so if it was shown it will be on the net.

Why would they record a film they already have or seen, because as far as they are concerned it would be the same version so they WOULD NOT RECORD IT would they ?

They were unaware/it was never advertised that a alternate version was being shown.

Did you record (on your harddrive ) any Coronation Street episodes at all ?

Why? because many people watch TV, even if they own a dvd or even Blu Ray, even I do it even if I own a film sometimes. And many have SkyTV/Virgin anytime/harddrives locked into timeslip mode, so they are Always recording what they are watching and all they have to do is press one button to record it forever, easy.

I used to watch certain films always when they were on TV, and compare them to what I had on DVD, in the hope they slip up, or just to see what was cut, or is the aspect ratio was different and you see more image etc..

So I am 100% sure if this one on ITV2 was the real Uncut version, then someone has it and it will be on the net. It is hardly a TV station that only a few people watch.


and yes if I was a fan of Corination Street, sorry to tell you but if I had a Harddrive I would be recording every single episode! I know most people acctually do that now if they have harddrives, so they can watch them when they want to.

So how many versions of Total Recall have you recorded off ITV2 then ?
