I love this movie and have to give props to everyone involved, but... Was anyone else annoyed beyond description by the 'forced' commentary over the 30 minutes extended scenes??? Unbelievable, the directory gushes about the quality of the acting and the value of character development that occurs, while blathering endlessly and effectively defeating the purpose. In effect, you might as well just Mute and gather what little you can from body language. This kind of thing (the guy behind you who won't shut up) is unfortunately half-expected at the theater, but at home?? ======================= On a related issue, I'm somewhat fascinated by the legal controversy surrounding the stone mural in the background: http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0118971/dvd Unfortunately, I have the later (fixed) release where figures deemed to be too similar to an actual work of art were removed. Some CGI figures appear in the stone mural towards the end, but presumably these are different from the original release. I was wondering if any fans of the movie were able to locate the original release to compare the differences.
