Just wondering...
« on: June 22, 2011, 05:19:18 AM »
Is there any difference between the directors cut version and the theatrical?  Are they two different riffs or just the same riff with long periods of silence in the enxtended parts?

Copied from a ST message board:
There are 8 changes

1. Kirk's appt-----glasses line inserts
2. Kirk/Peter/ Scott in engineering--longer alternate take
3. Chekov talking to Carol line inserts
4. McCoy/Spock genesis argument--line inserts
5. Regula debate Carol Jedda etc---longer alternate take
6. Peter's death---much longer recut
7. Jeffries tube scene "That's my son"----entire short scene
8. 'Human ego' dialogue---entire short scene

The alternate Kirk /Saavik turbo-lift scene is NOT in the DC--only in the ABC version' as pointed out.

Total time difference 3 min 30 sec.
'Romulan heritage scene not reinserted because by the time they approaced Meyer for the his input in 1985 they had already turned Saavik into the more stoic 'full Vulcan' personality.
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.
