Yeah I'm not worried about the reshoots, I know what those are for and nothing so far has given any indication of a problem with this particular film anyway but they do seem to be getting a little scissor happy in general, all the way back to TIH in fact.
It's not a trend I'm a big fan of when the films suffer as a result, and several of them have imo. And since they don't seem to be interested in taking my money for some directors or extended cuts all I'm left with is a bit of grousing about the situation on the internet.
