Director's Cut
15 cert 116:51s UK: The Director's Cut/International Version was passed 15 uncut for:

From IMDb . A new cut of the film, runs 14 minutes shorter then previous version and is Joann Sfar's preferred one. Changes include -

  • Deletion of the scene where young Serge persuades in vain for his mother to buy him a gun to play with, even attempting to bribe her by saying he'll work harder on the piano.
  • Deletion of the scene where Serge and Boris Vian walk to his apartment and the two lie in the road in an effort to stop a cab. While they wait Serge reveals he has an double that follows him around to which Vian replies his is a werewolf. However two policemen soon end the conversation short. (This proceeds Serge arriving at Boris's apartment and explains a later scene where drunken Serge lies in the road before having the police escort to his concert
  • Longer scene of the Baby Pop groupies, as Gainsbourg wakes up in bed with two naked women as his Mug joyously tosses bank statements at him revealing how rich he is from Poupe'e de cire, poupe'e de son alone!
  • The groupies and party to Qui Est In Qui Est Out is cut short, removing Serge narrating about the mouth being the primary sexual organ . His narration reveals the girls in the room he has slept with and how he was with them. It reveals Gainsbourg's occasional cruel streak.
  • After Gainsbourg recites La Marseillaise at the press conference, we then see young Serge repeating it and triumphantly rising his fist to the audience.
  • Deletion of an short exchange in the nightclub when a reveller comments to Gainsbourg about him being parodied on a French TV show. The new version removes these lines either because the show is unknown outside of France or because it doesn't tie in as being the night Gainsbourg met his wife, Bambou as that TV show wouldn't air until years later.

Game Death Dual Format Blu ray

Game of Death is a 1978 Hong Kong film by Robert Clouse.
With Bruce Lee, Gig Young and Colleen Camp. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb
Cut by the BBFC for cinema release. Fight scenes were substituted for banned nunchuks for VHS. Uncut for DVD. The film is uncut in the US but there also exists a shortened Hong Kong Version.

Summary Review: A Fitting Tribute

A martial arts movie star must fake his death to find the people who are trying to kill him.

Game of Death, a Frankenstein concoction of bits and peices of Bruce Lee's final performance in a movie originally shot in 1972-73 and  a later film shot in 1978 after Lee's death is really two movies in one.

The first, a crime/revenge caper helmed by Robert Clouse is not as bad as you may have heard. The scenes are intercut badly and Lee's many doubles do look bad, but as a movie on it's own merit it isn't that bad.

Summary Review: Too Violent to be Rated!

A drug selling and violent street-gang terrorize the renters of a big trashy apartment-house.

Tenement's TOO VIOLENT TO BE RATED! tagline lives up to its name as well: people are dropped off windows, electrocuted, impaled, castrated, raped with broomstick handles, sliced on the jugular, etc. It's definitely one of the most violent 70s/80s grindhouse/exploitation flicks I've seen, but it was definitely entertaining if also brutal. Recommended.

George Bush headIn June 2012 American politicians called for a boycott of Game of Thrones after the creator's despicable decision to include former President George W. Bush's severed head in several scenes. In the tenth episode of the first season, Bush's decapitated head is seen impaled on a wooden spike, covered in filthy long hair.

HBO and the show's creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have apologized for the incident. Benioff and Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series' DVD commentary, insist it wasn't a political statement - just a prop.

HBO said in a statement that the scene was:

unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.

Gang Taps

3:37s 18 76:06s 2001 US film by Adam Ripp

Cut by the BBFC in 2004 with the following explanation: Cut required to remove a scene of clear and instructive detail on the preparation of illegal drugs.

The uncut region 1 DVD is available via UK Amazon

Amazon Review

If you're familiar with the works of the danish directors who've signed the DOGMA charter, GANG TAPES may please you with its improbable camera movements and its documentary style. If not, stay away from this movie.

I must admit that the scenes of violence of GANG TAPES are, in my opinion, far more impressive than those shown in the Hollywood thrillers. You never know what will happen next on the screen and you really feel in your guts the paranoia which is the life's companion of these people. And the impacts of the bullets in the body of the victims will hit you as if you were present in the hot streets of the city of the angels.

The Gatekeeper's Daughter is a 1975 France comedy by Jérôme Savary.
With Mona Heftre, Michel Dussarat, Annick Berger. IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1975 cinema release.

Thanks to Gary. Based on article from ovguide.com :

This very curious completely silent comedy includes some dramatic sequences and some fairly pornographic ones. The movie is made with titles, very much in the manner of early silent films.
