It always bothered me that the Turtles didn't have cockney accents. Let's just add that in as well...

I've hated that part ever since I was a little kid. Not only was it totally foolish on Leo's part, but Shredder had him dead to rights for an easy killing blow, but he just kicked him to the side.

that part makes me cringe every time!
when they were choreographing that fight, who thought that would've been a good idea?

Hmm... it would be possible, though it might introduce some logic issues in the plot. It would probably cut the running time in half, too.

yeah, guess it might just be easier to add a CG Danny to fall into the trash compactor right after Shredder.

It'd be great to have a remastered 4K/Blu-ray release with an original and director's cut version.

The main thing I'd like would be a proper directors cut with the deleted/extended scenes added back in.

Other than that just a few CGI touch ups I guess. Blinks, tighten the lip sync, nothing that major really. Whilst I'd love to extend the final battle it would have to be all CGI, probably new voice actors trying to mimic the originals (just for grunts and groans but still required), new/extended score for the sequence. That just seems more of a major change and I think I'd prefer to leave the movie as originally envisioned.

Have you ever heard the term "catalog title?" It's typically home video releases that aren't considered priorities due to no longer being in the limelight and therefore don't usually get the best of releases. This includes movies that were once considered blockbusters.

TMNT '90 is what would be considered a catalog title these days. If I had to guess, if this film got another Blu Ray release (that wasn't simply a repackaging), it would be done through the Warner Archives Collection. They seem to be busting out more titles now, including Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and a new release for Superman: The Movie. However, they don't seem to do a whole lot with special features.

The best chance for special features is if these films were licensed to Shout Factory. However, Warner doesn't seem to license their films to anybody.

Even so, it wouldn't have CG. That's too costly for a release such as this, which is for the best in my opinion.

Funny enough, Warner Archives just announced the three-hour cut of Superman! Even if WB wanted to, I'm not sure if they would have access to the negatives to do a complete restoration on the unused material. I'm guessing the original film elements are in Hong Kong, with whatever company acquired Golden Harvest.

The 'Burbs had a FANTASTIC release by a UK distributor a few years ago, which included a workprint sourced from a VHS tape. A similar release would probably be the most realistic way for the Barron/Menke edit to ever see the light of day.

If the elements are at Golden Harvest then the chances of them surfacing may not be great. I keep hearing stuff like that in relation to Jackie Chan movies. Apparently he used to overshoot his movies like crazy, and so there are probably cans and cans of outtakes in Golden Harvest’s vault, but for “financial and political reasons” nobody is allowed to look for them.

plus that's more George Lucas territory. only he could have gotten away with that sort of stunt and still had it sell.

heck! i'd imagine they could re-release the original Star Wars trilogy adding CG funny-nose and glasses on all the characters and it'd probably sell.

let's just hope Disney doesn't get any bright ideas.

Entirely? Nope. Too many plot holes (why would Casey wake up and go to the Foot HQ, for example)

You could cut out most of his scenes, though it'd be at the expense of learning Shredder's origin when he talks to Shredder.

It usually ends doing more worse than good. The new elements stand out like a pink elephant against a black wall. This is particularly true to what has been done to Star Wars multiple times from 1997 to 2011.

The only example I can think of that was actually pretty good was Blade Runner: The Final Cut, where it was used in moderation to make a few minor changes, like changing the sky in one scene and replacing a stunt double's face. The success of that cut wasn't the new F/X, but the improved pacing and restoration in general.

The only other decent example is a few new elements that were added to The Phantom Menace, and that's grabbing for straws. The changes didn't improve the movie, they just didn't make it any worse. And the only reason they fit is because the movie already uses CG.

Phantasm has a small amount of CG added, mostly replacing the flying silver sphere. But even that was weird.

I think if any CG were to utilized on the film, it should be to fix minor goofs, like I believe there's a shot where you can see the actor's face through Donatello's mouth.

This I wouldn't mind.

I really don't like the Final Cut. I don't like the colour grading and the end credits music is messed up. Director's Cut all the way.

It's the 80s TV edit although maybe slightly longer. I have a copy of that, just downloaded it from a Superman fansite that they put together.

Yep, rented Arrow's release out from LoveFilm. Not missing much, the theatrical cut is better in terms of pacing and what happens, the ending is better.

I wouldn't EDIT the actual film in any way except to maybe add the supposed deleted scenes with Mikey in the barn etc and to darken or erase those areas where the turtle actor's faces are visible. I would add the nonexistent 2 hour documentary on the making of the film that needs to happen, the Steve Barron commentary on the German release and probably just a trailer and actor bios. Maybe include a few key issues of Mirage on a second disc that directly inspired or made it into the film.

That's generally true of most workprints/assembly cuts. They're rough, unrefined, and more importantly, unfinished. If you're a cinephile and are interested in editing, they can be fun and interesting. A workprint for Beetlejuice floated around a few years and it had a few different scenes, including an alternate scene that was eventually replaced with the sandworm's introduction, which strangely appeared later in the cut, when the characters are hanging out the window.
