Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
Saving Private Ryan was still as heartfelt as most of his other films. Scarface is prolly the furthest a film can be in that department.

Not talking about the movies as a whole. eward stated that Spielberg had a hand in cutting out violent scenes in other movies, while the opening "Pvt. Ryan" was considered violent enough that it should have received an NC-17.

i think it's funny, given that spielberg doesn't (and i don't think he would ever want to) make movies like that, yet he helped out in the cutting of a violent scene in taxi driver, and now this, and some other things that i can't remember.....


Hard to say whether he meant it by physical violence alone or moral violence along with it. He more separated the difference between Speilberg and these films without saying exactly how.

i meant both, really.

and i didn't mean the cutting out of violent scenes, i meant the cutting together, scorsese mentions this on the taxi driver doc......

OK, you all are wired up b/c Jay Z did something or other but it sounds like the original electronic Moroder score is intact. Yes, it is electronica but adds to the eerie feeling surrrounding the movie. If they did change it, hopefully it wasn't too drastic.

So who's going out to get it today? I'm going to get mine on the net for about $15 unless Best Buy has a good price. List is $26.95, I believe. Also, is anyone buying the "Big Pimpin' Box Set" with the original movie? Looks like a nice place to  stash some blunts......

I agree, the whole VH1 tie in is a bunch of crap I tell ya.........if it's not Scottish.....IT'S CRRRAP!!! Fo shizzle my continuous drizzle.

Took going to 6 different stores, but I finally got it. Went to Best Buy just after they opened, around 10:10, and they were already sold out. Clerk said they had people lined up before 9. Because of that, the line for the Rain Checks extended the length of the store (full of hip-hoppers and gangtas). Went to another Best Buy, 2 Targets and a Circuit City, but finally found it some the same cheap price as Best Buy ($45) at Tower Records. But it was so worth the hunt.

I'm tempted to get the box set so I could see the Hawks version.

That is what I dubbed the box set that comes with the original movie from 1932. I just thought it was funny how this is being tied in to rap and nick'd it the Big Pimpin' Box Set.

I think I'll pick this up, though I've never seen it.

Got mine.

How come no insert booklet? Did the American version have an insert booklet?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
