Midweek Mouth-off: Dumbing down and declawed

1 min read


We’ve just seen it with The Wolverine, it’s happened notably before with Daredevil and now the highly anticipated Snow Piercer is getting a similar treatment.

In short, these movies are being heavily edited,  dumbed down and declawed for Western audiences – typically going from R-rated to a much more “accessible” PG-13. Although we’re sure we can predict your reaction, today we want to know how you feel about this kind of heavy-handed studio intrusion. Has it reached the point where you’d rather skip the film on circuit and instead wait for the director’s cut on DVD and Blu-Ray for the “real” experience?
