I was watching Gremlins whilst browsing the forums and it got to the part where the guys mum puts one of the Gremlins into the microwave and turns it on, then C4 actually cut the part where she turns it on and 'it' blows up! I presume they did it to stop kids putting their cat in the microwave but it is a bit stupid really.
Has anyone got any tales of pointless cuts during films?

Think you got censorship, try what has happened here in the USA on commercial TV since the Super Bowl 'wardrobe malfuction' of Janet Jackson, where she flashed her right breast. Now even PBS has to shadow out nudity of programs! Many live programs have delays to blip out a slip of tounge from stupid people. Recently when a major commercial network (ABC, owned by Disney) showed 'Saving Private Ryan', some affiliates in the 'Bible belt' areas wouldn't show it due the violance and language and fears of complaints. We can show violence, especially in cop and news shows, we can talk silly about sex, we can have intelligence insulting reality or sitcom programs, but show a breast or drop a f-bomb and your asking for a fine from the FCC.
