Well I got the Blu-ray today, I got it from Sainsbury's which has the exclusive bonus disc 90 min docu on it. Also cheaper than Tesco & Asda prices too
Frankly I can live without commentaries, I mostly never listen to them anyway. Someone like Joss would be an exception, but even he is better with other people in the room to bounce off of.
As for the spear, yeah that's a bit weird, but whatever.
Maybe I just made this up too, but didn't I read somewhere that it's a German thing? I know they're big on censorship and ratings there, so I bet Disney had to cut it out for them, and then as Region 2's Europe they just cut it out for everyone else too.
