Is the Swamp Thing blu-ray the unrated cut that was accidentally released by MGM before getting recalled?

No, it's the U.S. theatrical cut. Due to legal issues, they could not release the European cut that initially made it to DVD (with the added topless shots).

I have a copy of the original Swamp Thing and a half naked A B is the only reason to buy this movie. It is a shame the new release wont have this scene those beautiful boobs are some thing to behold.

As much as I love Swamp Thing and Q-The Winged Serpent I think I'm going to make do with my dvds and skip these.

I just watched the dvd a few weeks ago and was very satisfied with it. I see no need to upgrade.

It's better to read multiple reviews and average them out. There are always a couple of anal yahoo reviewers out there who either don't know their ass from their elbow or are far too willing to shit on certain releases purely out of personal or political spite.

But yeah, with Q, I am completely satisfied with my blue underground disc. I'm not a huge enough fan to justify the upgrade.

So on the uncut and cut dvds by MGM - is the way to tell the difference simply different cover art?

Review for The Hot Spot / Killing Me Softly Blu-ray: http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/hotsoftlybluray.php

Another review with screenshots: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/61401...me-softly-the/

It's surprising the trailer for The Hot Spot isn't included, as it was on the old MGM DVD.

I think the uncut version was the original DVD release. MGM later reissued it with different cover art that featured the US edit.

It's a shame this blu-ray isn't uncut. I'll probably skip it unless I find it under $10. After seeing the movie uncut, not sure I want to watch it without the nudity.
