I want to start off by saying I went to China years ago for about a month. I spent some time at night watching movies in my hotel and it was strange
because they edit their films much different than in the United States. We typically just change the wording, an object, or remove a few seconds of a
scene (the offensive part or whatever). Yet, in China, whole scenes were removed when probably one little minute part of the scene was really all they
wanted removed. This, in turn, made movies extremely short, I noticed that a ton of the movies were about an hour long instead of 2 hours or so.
This was wierd, but i caught on after the first night i watched 3 movies in almost no time. What was even stranger is I 100% remember watching V for
Vendetta there in the summer of 2007. The movie seemed 100% complete and it was the ONLY one. I vividly remember seeing it, and not only thinking it
was crazy that V for Vendetta was on in China but it had not been massively edited as every other movie was. And some of the very edited movies were
so harmless, it was strange.
I remember all of this because all of my partners and people on our team were discussing it the next day. I just thought I would add this is not the
first time it aired in China, not at all.
