Workprint collectors from the old tape trading days

Postby roman1990 on 12 Jan 2023, 18:32

Hi guys,
Hopefully this is okay to post. I'm looking for the following workprints that were said to be floating around in tape trading circles back in the mid to late 90's.

Blade (1998)
The Replacement Killers (1998)

There are others but these two are my holy grails.

Thanks,

I never heard of this. Try workprintvault site maybe they can help if u can trade with the guy.
Today I recommend to watch The Perfect Weapon (1991) Reelz Extended TV cut. Very rare

This guy also uploaded it on archive.org and did a hybrid cut theatrical plus censored Extended TV cut which runs now 92 minutes .
Watch it because Paramount may report it soon and will be gone,
The same guy uploaded some other rare versions and site put them down.
I remember couple of years ago on archive.org someone posted Out for Justice (1991) Extended TV Version ( the one from movie censorship site) now is gone forever...

Hi Alex,
Thank you for the rcecommendation. I believe the workprint vault site guy is retired. I do have copies of The Perfect Weapon TV Cut & Out for Justice but I also collect tv cuts as well as long as they contain deleted scenes.

it is strange to hear that Split Second (1992) Extended TV Cut was just released in Japan . This is not true. The extended cut was often shown in Russia in the 90s, from my sources on now defuncted channel TV6 Moscow closed in January of 2002.

Can we see the extended cuts of Blind Fury and The Glimmer Man from u. If possible of course. Are they the same Fullscreen versions from 90s or from some recent broadcast in HD ?

I searched The replacement killers workprint on net, but the only mention of it I found on very old site from 1998 which mentions that workprint runs 100 minutes. Taking in consideration that Theatrical Cut runs 87 minutes,so called Unrated Extended Cut in early 2000 96 minutes, we are missing some good stuff from it

As I see u posted in the past on different sites the same topic, i guess nobody has it or they are just greedy to share with other people

Yeah, I've looked all over with no luck. It was floating around way back in 1998 so chances are someone out there stil has it. I've emailed the person from that website but his email doesn't work.
