I don't watch movies on TV much anymore. I can just pop in the DVD instead like most here do. When Pearl Harbor was broadcast the other night, I happen to have the TV on in my home office as I was working on a project on the computer. As it played, I noticed that the movie seemed to be moving a lot faster then it originally does. Obviously, objectional material was removed. But I noticed little snippets of scenes were removed too. Ironic, for such a long movie was hacked up, it still played for 3 hours. It's not like I am a fan of this movie, but I happen to see most of it recently, so I noticed it. Is this common practive now, removing not just swear words or blood and gore, but many little scenes to jam more commercials in? When they played The Ten Commandments recently, I did synch it up with the DVD because I was curious how the broadcast version looked to a DVD on my new HDTV. The didn't appear to cut that film at all. Of course that's a classic.
