Seeing as how the new movie will be available December 21, 2004 on DVD. I thought this thread would be appropriate, because I've actually now seen the Director's Cut.

First off, I have to say it is a much better film than the one that was presented in theaters. Even though it is much better, there are still problematic scenes in the film and the ending is probably not what people expected. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but there is more explanation of what's happening linearly.

There is far more violence (in a good way), which was definitely reduced in the film, but the added and altered scenes in the film don't seem to really bring it to different conclusions at all. It's a bit of a disappointment in many ways, I was hoping that the Director's Cut would be more explanatory of all the relationships people had with each other because it still doesn't come off as clear as I expected it would.

I will say that if you are going to buy one of the two versions, buy the Director's Cut. If any of you have anything to say about my very obtuse and rather cloudy review of the Director's Cut (because I don't want to give away anything), feel free to post and ask for a PM on a particular intrest you have.

Do they show more of the sex scene in the DC?? I want to see some boobs or a*s or something. That sex scene sucked.

Does anyone know if the KA DVD has a full keira commentary? I hope so cos the keira commentary on the POTC DVD was brilliant. She is such a great flirt, in a good way, and i'd love to hear her taking the piss out of Ioan and Clive.

Her POTC commentary was extremely funny, i'll agree. will there be bloopers?

Would have been better if she had done a full commentary on the entire film. And yes, there are bloopers. But it didn't please me as much as I hoped.

In the Times today it reviews the 18 KA DVD released next week. I'm a bit disappointed that the DVD Extras section only says "Making of documentary, alternative ending with optional commentary from Fuqua, production gallery" Where is Keira's commentary???

I'm wondering what they were thinking when adding these new action sequences... Those who we've all seen in the cinema were boring enough. They raped the King Arthur myth, and abused Keira's beauty... these men should have a home with a lot of bars.

I've only seen the Director's Cut, I thought it was a really good movie - Keira is really good, I mean like she proves it a lot more than she did in Pirates...Especially her whole 'I'm a physco getting my fingers readjusted' at the beginning

yea, the readjusting the fingeres part really freaked me out but surprised me that she could freak someone out so well. I am really dissapointed with the DVD extras!!! there was no bloopers, no keira comentary (what kim said). plus there was no second disc. wat's the point of wrapping the dvd the pretty shiny thingy if there's no second disc!!!!???

Finally got around to watching the DC, and it's better than the theatrical release. All the added material fits nicely in the cracks of the theatrical, and a little blood where it should be dosen't hurt either. I especially enjoyed the extended fight scene with Tristan and Cedric-best part of the movie.

yeah the extras really sucked. But the movie wasn't bad so I'll live.

I enjoyed the Roundtable conversation, but agreed, they could've put more crap in it. For now, all extras in DVD's will be benchmarked by the Return of the King EE and the Ultimate Matrix Collection.

I don't think it was bad, except for the part where the blood that squirted out from chopped off limbs looked like tomato paste.

Well, there was this extra scene with Keira and Ioan for starters. A bit more fighting... a 'young Arthur' scene... And more. I liked it heaps better than the theatrical release.

Yeah, it was really good.

Quick question: I can't remember, but when Guinevere was "alone" with Arthur, was the scene where their "interrupted" in the theatrical?

You know the movie was rather boring, until KK saved the 'bust'
the extra scenes 'if not involving KK' just waste time, no dues to the story

Ioan Gruffud (sp?) = Arthur.

Frodo, I believe the love scene was not interrupted by anything. It just cut instantly to something else.

not true in the DC it was interupted by a knock on the door for arthur to come to the wall to look at the mass of gathering Saxons, ad why cant you just say Arthur instead of Ioan its just confusing

He meant in the Theatrical, no the Extended version.

Is it just my imagination, or was the "baby's arm holding an apple" part cut from the DC?

i kno.. i mean...with a film with ppl basically killing each other... there arent any bloopers??? no fell off a horse or tripped or fucked up a line...POTC had a great blooper reel the DC was a great disappiontment

The best thing about the paltry extras was when, during the round table discussion, there were a couple of shots of Keira in a full on laugh at one of Ioan's jokes.

Ahhhh... heaven.

I had never noticed this foxy lady until the other night when I rented King Arthur. I got it coz I heard it was full of hunky guys & I was having two girls over for dinner so I figured, "Hunky guys for the ladies, swordplay for me: perfect!"
:fencing:
Then out comes Keira, looking like a younger, hotter version of Helena Bonham Carter; argh, what a babe!
:icon_jaw:
When she came running out onto the battlefield in her little braided leather harness, I just hadta say, "See, now that's just HOT," which raised a giggle from the ladies...

I found the theatrical version pretty average, so hopes were high for the Director's Cut. It marginally improves it- but is still lingering in average-ness.

Sorry if you like it- it's just an opinion.

I only saw the director's cut and thought the whole movie was good. Clive Owen was great in that role. Kiera complained that her body became very muscular and alot bigger than usual, did anyone else think she looked pretty much the same? I think she still looks quite small in the film and couldn't notice any changes.

I dunno why, but somehow the movie wasn't that great to me (just received my Director's Cut dvd today) I loved Keira in it (WAH she only came like 40 minutes in or so tho) but the entire story seems weird. I mean, it's definitely not true, even tho they claim it to be, and it was rather historical incorrect...but Keira was awesome :)
