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?

It doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, they should dumb it down so that kids can also enjoy the movies. I think I reached the stage where I have realized that things like blood or sex don’t make a movie more mature. Those are cheap tricks to try and grab the attention of the older immature audience. I honestly don’t think blood would of added any extra enjoyment to Wolverine. The sex scenes in series like Sparticus and Game of Thrones ruined those series for me. You can show that sex is being had without actually showing the sex being had. I’m glad I got to watch Wolverine with my little brother.
