The movie was great.

The only thing I want to bitch about and scream my head off over is something no one here on my friends list will have to endure.

Lucky you.

They decided to censor all the violence.
So there are people with their throats cut open... Except it's BIG HONKING PIXELS.
Also the Gin bottle, 1 time out of 3 was censored.

Major problem is that not only did this detract from the movie.
The freaking editor also changed the colour and contrast.

SO we o from moody dark sombre lighting. To somehow obscenely shiny high brightness and high contrasts... Every scene someone is about to get themselves cut.

Go for ruining effect and lighting.


PS.. fuck you spell check, Colour has a U in it.

God I really want to see that movie. But that sucks what they did to the version you saw :(

There was a small section where they did deliberately change colour and contrast in the picnic section but I'm sure that wasn't what you were refering to.

Nope. Say the first time the Gin bottle turns up and the boy is downstairs while Sweeney is getting blackmailed.

Suddenly it is just as bright as the beach scene but also bright red and saturated with colour...

Also each and everytime someone is getting slashed up...

Highly distracting and annoying. (On top of the big honking pixels.
