I think hardcore fans will find value in this,
but still hope ( like I do ) someone picks this up and does it justice.
New viewers are likely to be less picky.
The CRI source looks extremely sharp providing great visuals, but audio could be much fuller, the English track sounds a tad anemic. I had never seen the US cut before outside of broadcasts ( always cut ), but the damage was worse than I feared as all scenes of violence are relieved of their highlights / climaxes.

Scream's Extended Cut is another frustration, as they use several minutes more of SD footage than required in their composite. Why they chose not to use all of the HD transfer for the Extended I'll never understand, beyond a few seconds or so.
One unnecessary 2 min section of SD material in the Extended Cut has a bad audio sync, not present in the HD version. How this happened is not clear, Scream blames their source. Whatever it was, it was fixable but possibly budget & / or time ran out?
