I can understand that that's not always possible.
It's never really on the cards. What director is going to leave in
unnecessary scenes that slow down the narrative and add nothing to the story?
That's what Bonus Scenes features are for on DVDs and Blu-Rays.
Conversely, nothing's worse than a 90 minute film that really needed to be 2 or even 2 1/2 hours long to do the story justice
the director's and the studio's call. You might disagree with their choices, but you're not really going to know what's missing till the DVD comes out. Movies aren't as restricted on length these days due to cineplexes and multiple screens (and no newsreels, serials or shorts), but directors don't chop out 30 mins, or add 30 mins, just for the fun of it.
