Mick, thanks for the heads-up. Ed Wood is Burton's best film. Why it isn't available on DVD is beyond me.
Thanks, man. I really want to see this film.
Thank you!! I'm going to breakdown and actually tape this. It's completely pathetic that there isn't SOME form of this movie available to buy and I have to resort to taping it from TV. It's a bitter, bitter tea Genereal Yen....
Last I heard there's going to be a Vista Series disc around Halloween of Ed Wood. Can't wait. I know for a fact they've done the new transfer.
I'll definately get the VS DVD.
I'm hoping for a Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Martin Landou commentary.
Is this going ot be uncut or will we have to suffer with the tv version in widescreen.
I'm pretty sure that TCM always presents films OAR and uncut, though I'm not aware of them ever showing any films with extreme language or frontal nudity. Apparently, they have some censorship in place over the criteria of which films they choose. I'm not complaining though, they're still the best option for OAR films on cable.
Papillion has frontal nudity (at least of women) and was shown uncut on TCM when I watched it a couple of months ago.
I taped this last night and was pleased that it was OAR and uncut. I was rather displeased that my cable provider decided to do the Emergency Broadcast System thing in the middle of the film, thus ruining the whole experience.
Hey Didn't Ed Wood get an R rating. What was it rated R for.
Ed Wood is R for adult language, drug use, and adult situations, probably.
I think it deserved a PG-13, but the MPAA must think otherwise.
I saw that uncut (and letterboxed) showing of Papillon and was pretty shocked... That entire segment of the film with the topless natives was cut out (or reframed) on AMC when I saw it last. The dialogue was usually censored as well. It's nice to have a network that treats movies right!
did anybody see Papillon on TCM on sunday. Was it uncut
I just got done watching Ed Wood for the first time. Very enjoyable. It was especially cool since I recently saw Plan 9 From Outer Space, so I was able to get all the references and visual jokes, like the guy struggling to climb out of the grave, the guy scratching his head with a gun, and the radical day/night changes.
Johny Depp over-hammed a bit sometimes, but I guess that was part of the style. Depp is really a talented guy.
I usually don't care very much for Burton's movies, so this will definitely rank as my favorite of his. His over-the-top style is a good fit for the material.
