Summary Notes

During World War II, a small German squadron was assigned the task of carrying a shipment of Nazi gold across the African desert. Along the way, the squadron was ambushed by the Allies, and only one American soldier, Robert, survived. Years later, Robert tells his story to a German treasure hunter named Kurt, who promptly murders him. Robert's son, upon learning of his father's death, vows to travel to Africa and find the lost gold himself. While the desert is hazardous enough by itself, the dangers lurking around this oasis are more than any of the treasure hunters ever imagined.

  • A torture sequence has been greatly reduced. We no longer see a pipe cutter being used on a man's leg.
  • The raid on the wilderness cabin has lost a few violent moments: a bullet impact/blood spurt as a thug is dispatched with a shotgun, a thug being clubbed with a piece of ivory.
  • A women crashes her car into an oil tanker causing it to explode: we no longer see her - dazed and bloodied - struggling to get out.
  • A beating of a henchman as Seagal breaks into the
    oil refinery has been cut to remove him breaking an arm and kicks to the chest.
  • The stand-off between Seagal and a group of hired thugs has been toned down: two blows to the head with a piece of lead pipe have cut, a close-up of a knife protruding from a face has been trimmed.

His job is secure, as bus drivers are hard to come by, and his overtime prospects are good, until the bus company decide to revoke a long standing rule and employ women bus drivers. Aghast at the thought of no overtime and, therefore, less wages, he joins forces with his long time work colleague Jack to sabotage the new female employees.

  • After the car falls into the water, the boys fooled around longer. Noodles eventually traces the car's license plate to Senator Bailey's address. The car that tailed him earlier in the cemetery emerges out of the compound and explodes shortly after.
  • After Noodles comes out of the door, the chauffeur criticizes his lifestyle (explains why he interferes during the rape). Noodles counters him with the financial benefits.
  • Noodles is left alone in the street after the rape. He visits a prostitute bar and had sex with a call girl.
  • Deborah performs the final scene of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra before Noodles goes to visit her backstage.
  • There's a pivotal scene of Max with Jimmy. Jimmy and his other associates want him dead because of his many mistakes. Jimmy suggests that he commit suicide with the line I'd be very happy for you tonight, if during all the noise of the party I'd hear a shot. This scene explains why the car bomb went off during the second additional scene.

Thanks to David:

In the cinema version, a horse trip was deleted. When the Made In Hong video was examined in 2000, a closer look revealed that the horse fall was in fact achieved safely and the cuts were waived.

However the cut crept back into the DVD version when it was resubmitted in 2001. This was down to an administration error. By the time the error was spotted it was too late and so the DVD will be released with an unnecessary cut.

100 Tears is a 2007 USA horror by Marcus Koch.

Exists in an Original Version and an Extended Director's Cut. Never released in the UK.

Summary Notes

After being accused of crimes he did not commit, a lonely circus performer exacts his revenge on those who unjustly condemned him. The act sparks something inside of him which he cannot stop and now, years later, his inner-demons have truly surfaced. Part urban legend, part tabloid sensationalism... he is now an unstoppable murderous juggernaut, fueled only by hate.

This film stands out for having one of the most entertaining and brutal opening 15 minutes. It is a montage of gruesome killing and the audience gets to see every gory moment; there is no fast cutting away at the crucial moment.

The only downside to having such a cool beginning is that the film shows its hand early which means suspense goes out of the window as the viewer is desensitised from this point in. The film then has to keep feeding visual candy in the form of gore. It succeeds well; this film must have one of the highest body counts for a slasher movie

Summary Review: Mask

After being forcefully inducted as a soldier into war in 14th century Japan, his wife and mother remain living in a swamp. They eke out their living by ambushing worn-out warriors, killing them and selling their belongings to a greedy merchant. The woman comes to mistrust her daughter-in-law who has coupled up with a deserter, and begins to wear a facial mask she has taken from a slain samurai. Soon the mask will not come off again. In this disguise she is at first taken for a demon by her daughter.

The ensuing drama is a tale of their sexual tension in the high summer heat, which is exemplified by the swaying of the reeds/grass, the faster the reeds blow in the wind the higher the sexual tension.

Shindo also uses Black and White to stunning effect at a time when it was probably easier to film in colour. This is a Cinematic Masterpiece!

The cuts are obvious and the scene looks choppy.

Summary Review: A Jewel

Porn meets Pygmalion. Misty, the hooker, meets the sexologist who thinks he can transform her from the nadir of passion into someone who inspires passion. While Misty is trained for her big test, seducing a homosexual artist, the relationship between the doctor and Misty remains unsettled.

Radley Metzger has created an unbelievable amalgamation of great script, fantastic actors, and the best production value I've ever seen. Other films may have spent more on cheesy helicopter shots or period costumes, but you will never find a porn movie as good as this. The opening of Misty Beethoven holds up not only under the porn standard, but under any film standards.

The sex is not of the grind house variety that you find in most XXX films but it is highly erotic, entertaining and with Ms. Money, surprisingly romantic. This is a jewel of an erotic film.

Review from UK Amazon : Argento at his Best

One of Argento's most dizzying works but also one of his most enjoyable. This being Argento's ninth giallo, he knew all the conventions inside out, so he plays with them mercilessly, using flashbacks, jump cuts, juxtapositions in a captivating way.

The opening when the temperamental diva walks of the opera, is typical of the high style of the piece.

The ending is, admittedly, a bit of a disappointment, but it's sweetened somewhat by the sly reference to Phenomena. Brutal, beautiful and daring, this is Argento at his best.

The film's plot, script, and acting are only average, but the film is buoyed by some sizzling chemistry between Jolie and Banderas. Their sex scenes are extremely memorable, so make sure you get an un-edited version (unrated).

This is an interesting movie for a few reasons. As stated above, the sex scenes are among the best ever filmed. It is also novel to see a film about a man who is actually obsessed about his own wife. I personally could identify with Banderas in his willingness to give up everything for woman he knows he cannot trust. Heck, it happens to the best of us.

The Other Woman The Other Woman is a 2014 USA comedy by Nick Cassavetes.

In the US the film was Rated R for some sexual references. The distributors were not pleased and appealed the decision hoping for a PG-13. They won their case and the film was reclassified PG-13 for mature thematic material, sexual references and language.

The BBFC Insight (for an uncut 12A Theatrical release) reveals that the film has 4 uses of strong language, 3 more then the usual maximum limit for a US MPAA PG-13 rating. Presumably the reason for  the initial R rating.

Out for Justice DVD cover

Out for Justice is a 1991 USA crime action thriller drama by John Flynn.
With Steven Seagal, William Forsythe, Jerry Orbach. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Uncut for cinema release but the BBFC cut the follow up VHS video for violence. The BBFC cuts were waived in 1990 for DVD

Summary Review: Martial arts bar room brawl

Brooklyn cop Gino Felino receives a phone call alerting him that his best friend Bobby Lupo has been shot dead in broad daylight on 18th Avenue in front of his wife Laurie Lupo and his two kids by drug kingpin Richie Madano, who has been Gino and Bobby's enemy since childhood. As Gino is hunting Madano down, Gino discovers the motive behind Bobby's murder. This is when Gino's hunt for Madano leads to the showdown of a lifetime.

With this entry Steven Seagal and director John Flynn delivered one of the most enjoyable action thrillers from the past 15 years. Out For Justice also show cases one of the best martial arts bar room brawl fight scenes ever put to film. Seagal in his day was hugely popular simply because his movies were violent and he was enjoyable to watch as he snapped arms, legs and anything else that came his way.

18 86:41s UK: Passed 18 after 54s of BBFC cuts for:
  • 1991 Warner VHS

The BBFC cuts were:

  1. The pre-credits sequence showing Gino (Seagal) beating-up the pimp is missing (9 secs) of Gino smashing the pimp's head through the side window of his car and throwing him over some trash cans.
  2. The deli ambush is missing a single close-up shot of Gino pinning a thug's hand to the wall with a meat cleaver (1 sec). Resulting in the rearrangement of footage to accommodate the edit.
  3. The fight in the pool hall has lost (8 secs) of Gino wrapping-up a cue-ball in his handkerchief - the BBFC clearly trying to disguise this makeshift weapon - resulting in the loss of the following dialogue: ...there's only two things stopping you - fear and common sense...and I'm gonna cut your fuckin' head off
  4. The raid on Gino's home has been cut, deleting (7 secs) of Gino wrestling with an attacker and shooting him point blank in the head.
  5. The final showdown in the kitchen between Gino and Richie (William Forsythe) is missing (26 secs). Gone is the sequence in which Richie attacks Gino with a knife, only to have his wrist snapped, then a rolling pin, which Gino takes away and proceeds to club him with, after putting Richie's head through a window.

An alternatively edited version has been shown on Sky and Channel 5 which included all of the above footage. However, this was done at the expense of other cuts.

The cinema version and the Medusa VHS both suffered the same cuts in 2008

From WorldwideDVDForums :

  • This slasher, in which the victims are girls in the telephone sex business, gave the BBFC a lot of problems. Four murders were trimmed, and virtually all the dirty talk over the phone was removed. The censor even removed a five second shot showing a bondage photo next to a telephone, and 11 seconds in which the killer puts a carrot into a victim's mouth.

  • Various shots of Mok Siu-Chung and Frankie Chan breaking into cars were excised. Guess the BBFC didn't want potential car thieves to get any ideas.
  • After the scene in the nightclub there's a scene where Mok Siu-Chung and Sharon Kwok are attacked by a gang. We lose the shots where Sharon pulls a balisong (butterfly knife) out of her bag, twirls it and uses it against the attackers.
  • A close-up shot of Frankie Chan breaking into a house with a lock-picking kit was cut.
  • A sequence where chickens are thrown at the baddies to disarm them was cut for animal cruelty.

After a few test screenings, the film was cut by Warners, because it was feared the audience would not appreciate the movie's runtime. However the shortening harmed the film and the extended Complete Novel Version is much better, especially as the extra detail improves the finale.
