    I'm thinking Blade did, but I'm not sure.

    I do wish more dvds had this feature. There are MANY movies that my whole family would enjoy if they would just remove a few words or scenes. The Matrix and Blues Brothers are two that just popped in my mind.

    Are you talking about films that use seamless branching to include the R rated and the Unrated version of the film or DVDs that use the parental lock feature to either not let kids play the film when they enter the DVD into the player or that blocks out specific scenes and words?
    For films that use seamless branching...
    Body Shots
    Embrace of the Vampire
    Posion Ivy 1 - 3
    As for the parental lock feature, I never seen a DVD that lets you block out specific scenes, words, what not.

    Why can't your family enjoy The Matrix? The violence is kept to an absolute minimum, there's no profanity and no nudity. This movie should've been a PG-13.

    This was supposed to be a big selling point for DVDs when the format was first introduced. But you're right, Francois, it's not used enough; most studios elect to waste their money by packaging two complete versions of the disc--i.e. American Pie. I know that Crash gives the viewer the option of choosing between an R version and the theatrical NC-17.

    Actually the stores would carry them then since they would have no choice.
    BB around here has Kalifornia, Body Shots( even 9 1/2 Weeks which only has the unrated version!!) & a few other dual rated discs. Of course if it says NC-17 on it,they won't carry it which is why i can't find thhe Crash dvd at any BB or Hollywood or store around here besides Best Buy ect.
    Still BB is messed up that certain movies they do carry the unrated version,but for most they don't(at least the one near my house,though i don't rent from BB anymore [​IMG])

    Would a rated G version of The Matrix be about 10 minutes long? (including the credits?)

    The upcoming MGM DVD has both the R-rated and totally uncut (dialogue and visuals) versions of Dressed to Kill.

    ~ i managed to pick up *Crash* as one of my enrollment titles at CH. There's a good 10 min. difference between the R and NC-17 rating.
    The discs itself has one of the most beautiful mirror finishes I've ever seen, it looks like Fine Italian Black Lacquer on high end furniture.

    I am also one who would enjoy a movie like the matrix where the fat(violence, language) is trimmed.
    I don't enjoy blood andor guts. Just show me a great story and tell it with only nessacery profanity and minimal violence.
    And don't give me any of that 'the artist's vision' crap.
    I will view a movie the way i choose.

    They should have included the first laserdisc version of "Insatiable" on the DVD- it was pressed in Japan, and there's certain things you can't show, period, in Japan, so they cleaned it up with a lot of cheesy video effects- split-screens and that sorta thing. They later reissued it uncut on a disc pressed in the US, but I've heard the Japanese disc is pretty funny.
