There was recently an article in our local newspaper about the fact that
many DVD companies are releasing unrated versions of films instead of the
theatrical rated version. I find this very disturbing. Marketers are
expecting the curiousity factor, people looking for more sex, violence and
language, will push people to buy the unrated version over the rated
version. But what we are getting is not necessarily more sex, violence and
language, just more footage. Does this mean that we are in some cases going
to be getting an inferior version of the film?
