    Hours of top entertainment. Brilliant.

  10. yafi says:

    Damn… I spent so much money decades ago trying to collect all of them in most available uncut versions… Now, the vast majority of the titles you can get in HD :-)

    • Anthony says:

      Same here. We were told for so long that these movies could NOT be released in their uncut form. And then, slowly, they all were, after James Ferman was forced to resign for belatedly allowing uncut hardcore porn under the R18 certificate, which was what that certificate was created for in the first place!

      The Melon Farmers website documents all the changes. Dark days for movie fans, let’s hope they are gone forever.
