This can make great unedited movie scenes
24 December 2010 | by KevinB12See all my reviews

Even if the Hollywood directors would love to have their movies uncut and unedited like the uncut version of American Psycho and Hostel one and two. Even if the Motion Picture Association of America could not approve uncut versions of movies because they want to be more edited Restricted versions and not Unrated or No Children Under Seventeen versions even though that sounds unfair to the director. The uncut versions of Hollywood movies should always be on DVD and Blu-Ray. Banned From Television should be great on DVD and Blu-Ray even these shocking scenes would look like uncut movie scenes theatres find too shocking to be shown.
