10 Worst Deleted Scenes That Would’ve Ruined The Movie
Deleted scenes are usually gems lost in the cutting room. In order to keep the running time at comfortable length, they are sacrificed to give room to greater scenes. The choices are hard to make because all the footage is equal to directors, that’s why they like to put them back in the dvd/blu-ray release.
However, sometimes the choices are much easier to make if the scenes are too bad to help the movie. Here are 10 worst deleted scenes that would have easily ruined the movie, we are glad they are dumped.
10. Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith
The Scene: Obi Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen) encounter General Grievous, who has a strange, never-before-seen Jedi held captive. Grievous than spits “Stinking Jedi” and kills her.
Why It Was So Bad: Well, we’ve never seen this Jedi before, nor even heard her mentioned, which means there’s basically no emotional impact to the scene whatsoever. Also, Obi Wan and Anakin don’t even seem to care she dies. Even more ridiculously, the Jedis then communication their plan for escape to each other by, er, rubbing their faces…
The Scene: It’s crazy this deleted scene even got shot in the first place considering its raunchy content. Crassus (Laurence Olivier) and Antoninus (Tony Curtis) take a bath together and discuss the difference between eating snails and oysters – a thinly veiled hint at gay sex.
Why It Was So Bad: It was just a little too racy for the ‘60s.
