So You Watched The Movie. You NEVER Expected The Whole Story -right?

PLEASE tell me you are NOT going to fall for this one??

You must be a special kind of stupid.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Cinematographer Larry Fong Changes Opinion on 'Ultimate Edition'
 
“Those of you who are fans, will dig it. If you hated it, you'll still hate it,” Fong tweeted June 2. On Friday, he tweeted, “Watched the #UltimateEdition again; now believe EVERYONE will LOVE it.”
 
That's it.  I'm writing no more.  I have said and written for YEARS now that if you pay to go into a cinema to see a movie then the film-maker/studio is or should be legally obligated to show you that movie complete and uncut. You should not be told "There's a Director's Cut that will explain that whole scene!" No. The scene SHOULD be explained in the movie.  Not, "Pay more $s to see the movie you paid to see but we never let you the first time!"
 
Or, ffs, "Blade Runner"...."Blade Runner Extended Edition"...."Blade Runner The Director's Cut"...Blade Runner....you get the point?  No excuses from Directors of "Well, the studio were firm that the movie had to run 1 hour 43 minutes and not 1 hour 45 minutes so we cut out the whole explanation! But you can see it on the Special Edition DVD!"  Or the studios giving excuses.  You pay to see a movie you should expect to see it not be told "Well, if you pay $20 for the dvd you can see the whole movie now!"

But studios and directors are accountable to no one but their own greed and, as with comics companies, you are the piggy-bank they can keep shaking because it keeps giving.

Looking at Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer "extras"/deleted scenes. They amounted to, what, ten minutes?  BUT they would have added more of the feel of the comic had they left those scenes in.  Deleting them made no sense.  Similarly with a couple of the X-Men movies. I've watched recent movies and just thought "What? What happened to everyone else -what's going on??"  In "deleted scenes" there was a 20 seconds clip that explained it all.

Now I refuse to watch the extras and deleted scenes. Show the whole movie or fuck off and don't bother and stop cheating movie fans out of their money because, after decades, they still haven't realised what you studios/directors are doing.  The movie mags and bloggers do know but they want to stay "in" with "the industry" (as if it cared).  Or some are too deumb to have realised.  Pay attention to the few who DO point out the rip-offs.

"More of the Batman Nightmare scene will be explained in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition!"
 
Yeah. Come on, losers, splash out that cash because I'm betting the movie will still be crap. But the studios keep churning this crap out (if you wait and buy 2017s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Golden Edition you can hear Ben Affleck mutter in one scene: "What the fuck type of shit director is this ass-hole?" -worth the extra $25!).
