DVDs with cuts of the films missing from the Blu-rays

What DVDs do you know of that have a missing cut of a film that is missing from the blu-ray? Theatrical cuts, extended cuts, director's cuts. I'm region free, so I am taking foreign blu's can override domestic DVDs. Not worried about special features/extras.

If you see any of these listed below that are available in any region (A, B, or C) on Blu, let me know.

Here is a start:

The Matrix one is odd. The theatrical release had a green tint, the DVD seems to be oddly natural color, the blu-ray seems to be more of a blue tint instead of green.

Grabbed that from the UK. Good thinking on Man films though. Are there still versions of Manhunter not available on any of the Blu-rays? How about Heat or Last of the Mohicans, I know he likes to tinker.

Re: DVDs with cuts of the films missing from the Blu-rays

The inability to see The Warriors in HD vexes me the most in that list.
The Alien color grading bothers me quite a bit, but I adjust my display setting to mitigate that problem a bit and everything else about the release is stellar.
But there's no way to avoid seeing those amateurish transitions in Warriors unless you step down to standard def. And that's a real shame 'cause the PQ on the Bd seems exceptionally strong otherwise.

Would love to own this on Bd, but I won't till they wise up.

You can take off Heat from the list. This was a good article posted on the Blackhat thread by WhySoBlu. Mann states the only 2 movies where he never changed a frame is The Insider and Heat.

Of course, I'm sure Blackhat will be added to this list once we see the press release for the blu.

Will remove Heat. Looks like 2 versions of Last of the Mohicans are only on DVD, the Theatrical and 1st Director's cut. Do you know which specific DVD I need to buy for the theatrical cut? I see mentions of UK and Germany.

I'm glad I wasn't taking a drink or swallowing some food when I first saw the transitions.

I just recall the UK DVD being the theatrical cut. I think there's only 1 release in the UK for it, so I'm guessing that's the one. I remember reading a few years ago that the theatrical was available via iTunes, but I just checked and it's the so-called "Definitive" cut.

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday - the DVD has the 91 min. unrated version, whereas the Blu-ray only contains the R-rated theatrical cut that runs about 87 min.

Re: DVDs with cuts of the films missing from the Blu-rays

also I sort of started it in my link in my sig:

"unrated-alternate-director's cuts: DVD"

and Part II, which isn't in my signature

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/8215092-post108.html

these lists only pertain to US releases, the lists do not comprise of other country releases - which opens up alternate versions ten fold.

I believe the unrated cut of Live Free or Die Hard is not on blu-ray.

Nice. Will need to sit down and do some work with it. The Dances with Wolves example doesn't work in my case. Both versions are available on blu, different regions, but on blu. I am region free. Now the New World example is just what I am looking for.

Re: DVDs with cuts of the films missing from the Blu-rays

Lethal Weapon 1-3 all have director's cuts on DVD. The extra was footage was only available as deleted scenes on Blu-ray.

Troy theatrical cut has only been available on DVD and HDDVD.

If I recall, The Godfather Part III Director's cut has only been available on VHS.

I think The Replacements Killers theatrical cut is exclusive to DVD.

I think Canada got the unrated cut on Blu-ray, while the U.S. only got the theatrical cut.

Re: DVDs with cuts of the films missing from the Blu-rays

Fragile (2005) U.S. DVD Theatrical Version (censored for PG-13). German Blu-ray is uncut (R-Rated).

Carriers (2009) U.S. DVD Theatrical Version (censored for PG-13). German Blu-ray is uncut (R-Rated).

Not sure if this counts, but...

The Nun (2005) U.S. DVD is zoomed to 1.77:1, the German Blu-ray is in beautiful 2.35:1 widescreen (OAR).
