    Even the battle sequences in Braveheart were edited before release. That still does not make ok.com ok, IMO

    Some interesting info about OK (which stands for Operation Kids www.operationkids.org) is provided in their 'about us' section, including their objectives:
    Build an OK Community of people who want better media choices in their homes and communities.
    Use the OK Mark, as licensed by the Operation Kids Foundation to endorse products and services that present positive media choices.
    Create strategic alliances with like-minded affiliates and suppliers.
    Provide an ongoing income stream to the Operation Kids Foundation in its effort to make "the life of the 'Whole Child' OK.
    While I appreciate the honesty on their site, the reply they sent to marc is a little confusing on whether or not they are primarily interested in children or not.

    I thought I should let everyone know that I did receive the free copy of Fight Club (on VHS). I have only watched about half so far, but here is a summary:

    The VHS box I have says that the movie has been formatted to fit my screen, but the movie is in widescreen. They must have done the editing with the DVD and copied it onto an official Fight Club VHS tape. The video quality sucks, BTW.

    The quality of the editing is actually very good. If I hadn't seen the movie so many times, I would have no idea stuff was missing in most of the scenes. Keep in mind that I have only gotten to the part where Jack first comes to live with Tyler. Their first fight seemed intact.

    They seemed to have concentrated on editing the language. They removed the standard words, as well as any references to "tit", "ball", and a few others. They removed the segment where Cloe (the cancer patient) mentions her lubricants, etc. at her apartment.

    Then I got to the scene just before Jack and Tyler fight for the first time. Jack explains Tyler's job in the movie theater. They removed the line where Tyler mentions that he splices single frames of pornography into family films. So apparantly, even the mention of pornography is bad. But here is the kicker: They did not remove the shot of that single frame of pornography at the beginning of the scene! I could not believe that! They will remove the word "ball" and even the mention of pornography, but they leave the pornographic scene in. That one must have slipped by.

    I will post another update when I have seen the rest of the movie.

    In the latest issue of "Sound and Vision", there's a short article about a similar company that puts out edited versions of movies on DVD, if anyone is interested.

    The DGA is taking some legal action on this according to the trades.

    This site is the enemy. I can't believe crap likes this actually exists. Why censor movies that kids won't even enjoy! I'm sure a kid will want a censored version of Moulin Rouge.
