With very few exceptions, almost no movie is a one-person affair. Film is a collaborative medium that takes a large team of people to complete. The director is not the only person whose contribution matters.
Yes, sometimes you wind up with people working at cross-purposes or against one another's wishes (even intentionally so). Nevertheless, at the end of the day, this movie was completed and everyone signed off on it. It was released, became a huge blockbuster, and even won a few Oscars, for a version that no longer exists.
So, yes, this is still very much revisionism, albeit on a smaller scale and to much less detriment than, say, the desecration George Lucas inflicted onto Star Wars (which fundamentally changed that film and made it worse). By comparison, these are minor and superficial changes. I'm sure we can all shrug them off. But it's still disappointing that the original version has been suppressed.
Yeah, this is good art on the steelbook. Is the first image the art for the non-steelbook? I like it too.Website The Digital Bits is reporting that the 4K disc set will be released on December 7th. Best Buy will sell a exclusive steelbook version. Like the art work on the steelbook.
I’m pretty disappointed that we’re apparently not getting a UHD of Aliens tied into the 35th anniversary of the film, because if not now, when? I suppose maybe as a tie in when the Avatar sequel finally comes outOf course, Fox titles are a totally different story.
Is that Daffy Duck on the inside of the steelbook, if it is then that's got to be a first for Disney to included a non Disney owned character on any media or merchandise.
How much do you think the mouse had to pay WB for Daffy's licensing?
Allegedly, Betty Boop's nip-slip was deliberate. Zemeckis wanted to pay homage to those "Easter eggs."Like I mentioned earlier, the only real "revision" is the alteration of Baby Herman goosing the woman. That was always meant to be seen.
The rest was "Easter egg" territory...

Interestingly, this article doesn't mention anything about Jessica's commando moment.
Did someone say it was meant to be seen?
Now if they would step up their classic fox film releases please?
Some / all Marilyn Monroe films in 4K please!
Most of the classic Fox library will probably come from boutique labels, as back in 2019 when Disney+ launched they showed all of the titles they would be offering. Only a few select Fox titles where included in their list. Marilyn wasn't in the line up but Julie Andrews was.
