I don't think the horse trips were essential to the film

Thankfully the French double BD pack I ordered contains the international Fox discs for both movies, i.e. Barbarian is the same disc that was recalled in the UK. If I play it in my Region A machine it automatically loads the uncut version with English menus.

Watched Destroyer yesterday, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie doesn't kick ass like Barbarian does but the practical sets and locations carry it a long way, as does Jack Cardiff's photography, which is beautifully conveyed by this excellent transfer. The MGM extras (2 commentaries + 2 featurettes about the Marvel comics and Basil Poledouris' music) are a welcome inclusion.

I'll have to pick up Destroyer at a really good price at some point. I was shocked at how good the screencaps looked for it. A very pleasant Universal anomaly.

Can anyone please confirm that this is the corrected version (as was announced by Fox that it would be available this year) with the original mono track? The original disc was out of print for months, but it looks like it's back in stock? Thanks!
I doubt these are the corrected version.. All are sold by a marketplace seller so most likely remaining stock from the first batch. Any of the other retailers showing new stock?

Hmmm. Depends what's worth more to Conan fans: having the movie uncut or having the corrected audio. I've got the uncut international Fox disc, but I'll order the new UK one for the hell of it.

Can you do the "menu in Dutch" trick to get the uncut version?

Edit: I see the referenced thread says no. So you really do have to accept the cuts, unless a US version comes out.

As frustrating as the chorus f-up is, no way am I buying the movie again only to have the UK cut version. A cut is a cut. Replace one screw up with a deliberate one. If Destroyer can have such a good Blu-ray (Which it does) then so can Conan. I'll wait for a true proper Blu-ray to arrive, if it ever does. And if I miss the chorus that much, I'll give the soundtrack a listen.

For those who are interested in what has been cut (21 seconds): http://movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=363247
And what if the score is badly edited around those cuts? What then?

I think I'll stick with the current disc. I like to see watch those horses fall. Sometimes I watch them in slow motion, while I play Ride of The Valkyries in the background.

Since Conan isn't a British movie we should get more discs with corrected audio AND not cut don't you think?

My Collector's Edition DVD released by Universal has the mono track. Is it feasable to take the blu ray video and pair it with the DVD audio and author your own corrected version? And if so, is there a way to also correct the missing night filter scene before you create the disc? This is of course, for personal use after I buy the blu ray.

Seems people have already done that with the uncut version and soon done with US theatrical version also.
