    MGM got their hand slapped with releasing the uncut Swamp Thing in the US and since then they have not been willing to release alternate international cuts with nudity stateside. It's almost impossible to track down the full agreements they have with all parties involved on movies they acquired; especially internationally. Even on The Brain That Wouldn't Die, arguably public domain, MGM was reluctant to release the international footage and I'm guessing Shout only talked them into it by offering to take all risk and place it only as an extra.

    So either Kidman's contract is just as clear or I'm guessing MVD didn't want to go against the general advise of MGM's lawyers.

    The "Extended Bedroom Scene" was actually announced to be included on this release... before the MGM licensing debacle happened with this release, so you are probably correct about that.

    Got my replacement Lionheart today in the mail. Very fast imho.

    The package came with two replacement discs, the Blu and the DVD (both is plain cd paper holders)


    Now here's the bad part. As I didn't check the film myself yet. Reports are that the DVD is fixed but the Blu-ray is NOT fixed. It's the same Blu disc with audio glitch as originally in the release. :(

    Seriously?? Wow, I've never heard of a replacement being sent out and not fixing the errors before. o_O I mean geez, how can they screw something like that up a second time?

    First for me too. When they do finally have the "correct" replacement Blu, I hope they just send out automatically the new discs to the people that signed up with the initial program. Not that it was difficult, but a slight annoyance to email them all the info again.

    Was thinking, it's pretty funny. Imagine all the levels of customers in this scenario.

    - People that bought the Blu and have no idea there is a problem glitch.
    - People that bought the Blu and notice a problem, but don't know MVD has a replacement program.
    - People that bought the Blu and signed up for the replacement program and don't know the problem is still not fixed.
    - People that bought the Blu, signed up for the replacement program, know about the second error.
    - People that didn't buy the Blu yet, but when they do down the line will have the correct Blu, and will have avoided this fiasco without even knowing one existed. :p

    On their facebook.

    "Easy... The REPLICATOR used the wrong fuckin' master for the Blu! We sent the replacement and this time THEY made the mistake. I should have an update tomorrow. Looks like there might be replacements for the replacements. I'll update tomorrow."

    Interesting that the Nemesis Collection sales sheet says it's only 2 discs including just the first three movies....but the posted running time suggests all 4 movies. Since they'll be the same Oliver Krekel "demasters" anyway, I doubt an upgrade of my Nemesis 1-4 German set (which is 4 BD-50 discs + Soundtrack CD) will need upgrading anytime soon.
