    I realise there is a thread about the differences between the Canadian & US versions of Monster's Ball but this is more to do with the lauch of a new series from Lions Gate with more to come in the future.

    The first 4 are released on February 11 which are Amores Perros, Eve's Bayou, Monster's Ball & "O" (Othello).

    Monster's Ball is listed as the Longer Version but whether this means longer than the existing Lions Gate release, I'm not sure because I was under the impression that was the uncut original director's cut, prior to cuts made to save an NC-17 MPAA rating.

    If anyone's interested in any of these releases, I can type the complete features of any you wish and even scan any of the covers if anyone has web space to host them.

    Thanks for the info.

    I held off buying Monster's Ball as I heard that there would be a uncut version coming out. Glad to see that those rumors were true.

    Give us the full scoop, man. I'm very interested in a new Eve's Bayou. Never had a clue that there was stuff they cut out.

    I just bought the Dutch dvd of Monster's Ball, assuming it was uncut like it was in Dutch cinemas. But like all other current dvd versions, our version's cut too. [​IMG]
    Well, at least February 11 is pretty close to my birthday...[​IMG]

    Am I mistaken or is "O" pretty much the same version as the 2-disc set?

    Looks like time to clear room for 4 more films. Every title is welcome in my collection. I've had each of these films on my "to buy" list and good timing that they are all getting re-releases.
