[1984] Breakin' - JCVD Cameo (VanDammeFanz.com) - YouTube
I tell ya, it never ceases to amaze me what some people are willing to do to "break" into the movie business . And look, he decided to wear that same outfit when he's kicking the speed-bag at the beginning of "Bloodsport" ...what a goofball ...

Not sure which version you have, but the MGM German BD is also single-layer with just the trailer...and I can tell you right now my friend, despite the minor aliasing issue it has, it absoutely annihilates the Warner transfer...

I've got the German Blu, and it's a no contest. Pick it up as soon as you can...you won't be disappointed...

The aliasing is a mute point as far as I'm concerned. Upon screening the German Blu earlier today, aside from being very impressed, I came to the firm conclusion that the Warner transfer is so embarrassingly bad, any minor setbacks the MGM disc has are, comparatively speaking, entirely inconsequential.

It does, and the aliasing was relatively minor (at least on my 51" TV), not nearly as bad as I'd anticipated. I actually noticed less aliasing on the MGM BD of "Bloodsport" than I did on the initial Warner "Enter the Dragon" BD, which kind of surprised me, considering "Bloodsport" was shot 1.85:1 and "Enter the Dragon" 2.35:1. I'd have thought that since "Bloodsport" takes up so much more screen-space, that I'd be seeing it (aliasing) everywhere, but it really wasn't bad.

As I posted on the "Bloodsport / Timecop" thread, get rid of your Warner Blu (unless you like "Timecop") and buy the MGM disc...

According to this thread, the Scandinavian version by Soul Media is not the U.S. cut. http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.ph...0&postcount=13

I'd really like to have the U.S. cut on bd, but it will probably never happen. After growing up watching the U.S. cut, I watched the international version recently and oh boy, the music is as bad as many people have mentioned and the dubbing for the Bruce Lee character is different in some scenes and sounds worse in general than the VHS version.

Edit: Is the U.S. cut available on DVD anywhere? Don't care if it's a different region. This looks like it might be the U.S. cut but I doubt it. Amazon has the wrong specs frequently. http://www.amazon.com/Retreat-Surren...t+no+surrender

I have that release and saw it a few nights ago.

I never saw Jason meet Kelly; we were introduced to her at her birthday party. I am sure that the longer cut sees the two meet, instead of just him just going to her party like he knew her.

EDIT: I now see that there are 3 different cuts?
There's 79 mins, 85 mins and 99 mins. The back of mine says 85 mins and the back of the Australian release says 94 mins.

Someone with knowledge, please help!

I'm pretty sure the 85 minute version is the American cut, which has the extra scene where Jason and Kelly meet. The 94 minute version is the international cut, and it doesn't show Jason and Kelly meet. Haven't heard of the 79 minute cut.

Oh, then I must have those two mixed up.

Doesn't make sense that the shorter version has an introduction to a character, while the longer version she just appears outta nowhere!

Curious to know what the 79 min version is....

Yeah, the international version is just weird. It omits Jason and Kelly meeting, yet it has a bunch of other added scenes.
