Good to hear, but without Adrienne Barbeau's wonderful bust seen in the previous DVD release the news is a bit hollow. Looks like I won't be ditching that disc.

I'll pass. I wish they would do an actual Swamp Thing movie that felt like Swamp Thing.

Seeing as this is the theatrical and not the unrated, I'm betting if anything there will be a double dip down the road..

If not then it makes me wonder if the whole 91min/ 93min mix up that resulted in them pulling the dvds has something to do with the "for legal reasons" issue..

I'd be surprised if there's a double dip down the line. The unrated DVD was pulled from shelves for the same legal reasons. Those being the suite Adrienne Barbeau filed because she doesn't want the nudity in the movie. Up till the DVD, the unrated cut was known as the European cut, so at best we might one day see the unrated released on Blu Ray overseas, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

That's such a shame. Honestly, I enjoy that part of the movie so much it would be hard to watch Swamp Thing without it any more.

It's plenty similar to the Swamp Thing comics! You do know the comics existed before Alan Moore's run, right?

Yes. I have the book with the 13 issues in it. Maybe I should reiterate what I mean. I want a Swamp Thing movie that is good. This movie feels like they picked people off the street that walked by their acting agency. Arcane was too young and I don't remember the movie having any Un-Men in it.
