Yeah... that's so true! I have seen at least 5 different cuts of Blade Runner! I only saw once the version that has the voice over, which to me is the best version ever!

I was just thinking about this last week. My parents went to see "Babel" 
in Sankt-Petersburg, Russia.
They stayed to watch my credit, but were surprise to discover that he 
projectionist stopped the film about 30 sec into the credits.
I wish Russian managers would be polite as Brasilian one, unfortunatelly 
manager rejected to keep it rolling.

I agree that this might be the problem in "poor" countries, but how 
about Canada? Have you ever watch movie on CityTV, Toronto's main TV 
station?
I wish  they will cut /speed up only credits...  In many cases they 
EDIT! movie to fit they schedule.  Lets say they have 100 minutes for 
the movie, but the movie is 107, some "talented" editors will cut few 
shots or/and scene from movie to fit to 100 minutes. I always was 
curious if they have right to do so and if it possible to do anything 
about this?

I guess the only choice left is to get DVD of the Director's Cut version 
if possible :-)
