    I picked up a copy of "Supergirl" from Blockbuster for $10.00 new today, thinking it was the 124 minute international version. As a matter of fact, that is what the package stated.

    However, I open it up, and am rapidly suprised to see the 138 minute Director's Cut DVD, with no special features or anything. No alternate audio tracks, no subtitles. Nothing.

    Was this deliberate on Anchor Bay's part, or an accident?

    The same thing happened to me about two months ago when I bought mine at blockbuster for $10.00.I just thought it was a fluke but now perhaps it is not.

    I got the double-disk collector's edition at K-Mart last year for 8. I think the director's cut is a bit of an improvement over the international. it's rather long, but at least makes sense.

    But it's also cut for television in one or two places (a few off-color lines have been dubbed over or removed). In this regard the International cut is superior.

    For the record I find it hard to even use the word "superior" in any post about the film Supergirl, but alas, there it is.
