Sorry for the radio silence; there was work and then family and then writing and then I looked here and realized how long it's been since I posted. (The Sherlock Holmes posts are miiiiles late.)

Tonight, though, writing takes a back seat, and I'm finally sitting down with the director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven. I've put it off for a while because the theatrical version was so horrible I made a Choose Your Own Adventure out of it. However I had heard that the difference was striking, and knowing how much difference it makes for the director's cut of Blade Runner not to have the voiceover, I thought I might as well see what Ridley could do with more hours in his day. (And he has to have more hours in his day then normal people, since this version looks about four hours long.)

After watching it for two minutes, I can already tell this is going to be amazing, if not for the quality of the film, for Ridley's little video essay up front promising you how much better this version is going to be than the theatrical version. I laughed, you guys. That is awesome on so many levels. What would have happened if they'd said no? I can picture him going door-to-door with a copy of the movie. "No, it's organic character development! Just give it a try!"

Full report to come.
