Rabbit Fever is a 2006 UK comedy by Ian Denyer. With Lisa Barbuscia, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Tara Summers.
Uncut by the BBFC at 18. The distributors wanted a 15 but the request was denied
The Rabbit is the world's belling-selling vibrator. In the past year alone, millions have been sold all over the globe. Now experts are warning the Rabbit is becoming the new addiction; women who start
using often find they simply cannot stop. RABBIT FEVER is the first film to follow the trials and tribulations of a group of Rabbit Addicts as they attempt to kick their Rabbit habit.
UK: Passed 18 uncut for frequent strong sex references for:
There's no sign of the video release in the BBFC database.
Uncut but as the film contains no violence, no nudity and little sex beyond that implied by the title and references to sex toys, then the distributors felt that 18 was unnecessarily
restrictive. They asked the BBFC to reconsider but the BBFC declined with the following statement:
This determination was formally reconsidered by the BBFC at the request of the submitting company. The BBFC carefully
considered the arguments put forward by the submitting company and looked again at the relevant submitted material, but concluded that its original determination was appropriate. The BBFC did, however, amend the consumer advice.
Rabid Dogs is a 1974 Italy crime thriller by Mario Bava and Lamberto Bava. With Lea Lander, George Eastman and Riccardo Cucciolla.
Not cut by censors. The original version is titled Rabid Dogs. An unsuccessful rework is titled Kidnapped
Originally shot in 1974 under the title L'uomo e il bambino (Rabid
Dogs) , this film was shelved when one of the film financial backers died. The film sat on a shelf for almost 25 years until actress Lea Lander rescued it from oblivion. A new short prologue was shot, according to Bava's original script, and editing
and scoring were completed using existing available materials. In 2002 producer Alfredo Leone and director Lamberto Bava (Mario's son), allegedly dissatisfied with the DVD edit, produced a new restored version of the film called Kidnapped .
Lamberto Bava and his son Roy shot additional footage and original composer Stelvio Cipriani created a new complete musical score. This new version was not well received.

UK: A long version was passed 18 without BBFC cuts for:
Race 3 is a 2018 India action thriller by Remo D'Souza (as Remo). Starring Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez.
BBFC category cuts were required for a 12A rated cinema release in 2018. The cuts made the Indian news as the local release had a U/A rating, equivalent to a 12, without cut. The press seized on this rare example of Indian censor
leniency and claiming that the Indian censors are too soft.
Revolves around a family that deals in borderline crime; ruthless and vindictive to the core.
India: Passed U/A (12A) uncut for cinema release
The UK cuts have generated interest in India with the perspective that it shows that Indian censors are not strict
enough. Free Press Journal reports:
A source from the Indian censor board finds the discrepancy between the Indian and British censor's perception to be disconcerting. Are we to presume that the Indian censor board is more
liberal than its British counterpart?
To be honest we did have reservations about certain shots being suitable for a 'UA' certification. But there is a standing instruction from above (meaning the I &B ministry) that nothing
should be cut from any film unless absolutely necessary.
We are looking at an era of unstoppable liberalism in the censor board. This is to countermand the sanskari era of Pahlaj Nihalani .

The BBFC commented:
The company has chosen to remove scenes of strong violence in order to achieve a 12A classification. An uncut 15 classification was available.
Thanks to Joseph who commented:
Having seen both the 12A version of Race 3 and later the uncut bits online. I can definitely agree with the BBFC's decision to request cuts for a 12A; the cuts mainly occur to a shootout
near the start of the film were large blood spurts are shown from shotgun blasts and to some other violence later in the film.

UK: Passed 12A for moderate violence, occasional bloody images after BBFC advised pre-cuts for:
2017 cinema release
The BBFC commented:
This film was seen for advice prior to its submission for formal classification. The company was advised that the film was likely to be passed 15 uncut but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by reducing a
number of scenes of strong bloody violence. When the film was submitted for formal classification most of the scenes highlighted at the advice stage had been acceptably reduced. However, one scene had not been acceptably reduced and further cuts were
therefore required in that scene. An uncut 15 was available.
The BBFC commented it its annual report covering 2017:
The original version contained moments of strong bloody violence including a stabbing and several slow-motion spurts of blood resulting from shootings. The BBFC
advised the distributor that the film as it stood would be classified 15. The distributor chose to re-edit the film in order to achieve a 12A classification.
Pakistan: Banned in February 2017
The film was banned in Pakistan due to its objectionable content. A source from the Central Board of Film Certification
Owing to subtle portrayal of Muslims as violent criminals and terrorists, the recommendations forwarded by the CBFC panel deemed the film is unsuitable for public screening
US Amazon : Solid action entertainment
Wow! Ring of Fire 2
takes an entirely different route than the original. The first instalment was a Romeo and Juliet type of romance set against a backdrop of a cross-culture martial arts fued. Don The Dragon Wilson was the romantic lead and left most of the
fight scenes to his capable co-stars.
The sequel, on the other hand, is a non-stop action film. Don, reprising his role of Johnny, and his buddies go underground (literally!) in search of the gang leader who kidnapped his
fiance (Maria Ford, reprising her role- but with a different hair color!).
The plot is totally contrived, but this is just such a likable knucklehead of a movie that it's hard not to like it. Don the Dragon gets plenty of
fight scenes this time around. Wise move. Ring of Fire 2 is solid action entertainment. Just remember to leave your I.Q. at the door and you'll love it.
A teacher still haunted by the death of two teens that she accidentally caused as a young girl goes beserk when four teens start harassing her and then
attack her in her home.
The film is a departure from your run-of-the-mill 80s slasher flick but essentially follows the conventions of the genre with a few novel twists. It's a low budget offering with
some inventive kill sequences but the acting and directing are somewhat uneven.

See pictorial cuts details from movie-censorship.com . It is a little
puzzling as to why the MPAA picked out these two brief moments as being too much since headshots and knife use are all over the place in the rest of the movie:
A close up of a gangster being shot in the head was deleted
A gangster being lingeringly stabbed in the neck has been deleted
Hypable : After seeing this finished version of the film and the previous unrated cut at Sundance, I barely noticed any changes. How were you able to get through the MPAA ratings board with so few changes?
We were very lucky because the changes were minimal. We did make some changes but they're so subtle like cutting a couple of frames here and there. Also, there were some issues with Hammer Girl where she impacts to the flesh. Impacts to the flesh are
okay but impacts to the flesh and dragging the body are not. I trimmed here and there and thankfully you didn't notice, which is great for me.
Raid on Rommel is a 1971 USA war drama by Henry Hathaway. Starring Richard Burton, John Colicos and Clinton Greyn.

US: The Director's Cut is presumably MPAA Unrated for:
2016 Shout! Factory [Theatrical + Director's Cut] (RA) Blu-ray at US Amazon released on
13th September 2016
The Director's Cut which is actually
a re cut assembled by fan Peet Gelderblom, who in 2012 discovered that the movie was re-sequenced by De Palma in post-production, which dramatically changed the structure of the movie. After obtaining the original script Gelderblom set about
re-sequencing it to reflect De Palma's original vision for the movie. The end result is a more fluid version of the movie which while unfortunately not incorporating any additional footage does flow much differently, the flashbacks, the dream sequences
and storylines marry together much better, this is a superior version of the film, though it is not the miracle cure.
Director Brian De Palma was not involved in the creation of the Director's Cut but has watched it and approved it.
The main difference between the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut is
the new order of the scenes. The Director's Cut begins with Jenny and Jack who bump into each and start having an affair. This is more captivating than the Theatrical Version where Carter's story is the center of attention.
The Director's Cut is
longer dues to transitions between scenes rather than new material.
All in all, the Director's Cut is the better version.

Opening stick fight is heavily cut and should last about twice as long, removing most of the hits with the thai sticks as well as punches. Also kicks by Rambo's opponent (Harold Diamond) including a roundhouse kick, front kick and kick to the back of
the leg are deleted. There are mossing slow-motion shots of the audience and of Rambo once his opponent is on the ground, indicating that he could be unstable.
The mission with Colonel Trautman (Richard Creena) comes under fire from a gunship.
We don't see 3 victoms of numerous bullets.
When Trautman is being interrogated by Zaysen (Marc de Jonge) while strung up, physical hits to his face and chest are deleted.
When a kid pesters Rambo and asks to see his knife we don't see
the kid twirl it around for a few seconds.
The scene where the gunships arrive after the horse game is heavily cut. Numerous people should be seen getting graphically shot including Yorick, the Russian defector, who after taking a child to
safety open fires on a gunship.
During Rambo's first attempt to break Colonel Trautman out, the man seen being dragged out of the cell should then be tortured by electrocution. He is later strung up which we see, what we don't see is him being
executed by a bullet.
Close up of small knife that Rambo throws in soldiers neck.
Close ups of various soldiers being shot by Rambo.
After failing to break him out Rambo escapes and meets up with rebels outside, one of whom
should get shot three times while sitting on his horse.
When Rambo breaks Trautman out, the first scene their together Rambo hits a guard with a piece of wood a few more times and Trautman breaks another guards neck.
While escaping in
the gunship with other prisoners, one of the escapees uses the gun on the helicopter to despatch 3 guards which we don't see.
The tower that Rambo blows up with a missile, at first actually shoots the two soldiers occupying it, with their blood
spraying onto the camera lens behind them.
In the cave when Trautman shoots the solider that Rambo was unaware of there should be slightly more detail when he gets hit by the bullets.
During Rambo's fight with the big Russian outside
the caves, a hit to Rambo's face and ribs are gone as well as a head butt being deleted.
During the final stand when the rebels arrive to confront the Russian Army, a few more soldiers are seen getting shot in detail including Zaysen and his
Cut to remove tripwire cruelty to horses during the filming.
When Rambo III was submitted to
the board in the late 80s two previous Rambo films had each received the 15 certificate. But between parts two and three, the Hungerford massacre - when Michael Ryan killed 16 people with an assortment of guns - had made firearms and violence front-page
news in Britain. The attitude of BBFC showed the way it responds to public opinion.
As a result of events in Hungerford, as one examiner wrote: This silly, rather enjoyable movie is likely to be a political red-hot potato. The problem was that Rambo III seemed to be almost non-stop gunfire.
It's not so much what is shown, but how much and how relentlessly.
The examiners fell into an intense debate over whether to grant the film the same 15 certificate as its predecessors (albeit with cuts), or the more adult
18 reflecting the heightened sensitivities around gun use.
Public disquiet is at a height. It is naive to believe that we can always act without regard to political realities. Indeed I would go further and argue that it's
irresponsible. The film was released with an 18 certificate after cuts.
The 2010 Extended Edition adds nine minutes of footage, re-orders and re-edits scenes, and changed the film's title to John Rambo . It is said to be director/star Sylvester Stallone's director's
cut. This new version focuses more on the psychology of the character, adding numerous character beats.

The 2006 BBFC Annual Report states:
The first team of examiners believed that a '15' would be required to cover the violence and theme. This decision was appealed by the distributors who felt that the film's theme was
essentially a patriotic one, intended to educate and entertain young people.
The film was viewed again by a second team that included the Director and Head of Policy who agreed that the contextual and moral tone allowed
for a generous interpretation of the Guidelines but that a '12A' could be offered only if cuts were made to the final shoot-out that provided more emphasis on violence and bloody impacts than is usual at that category. The film was subsequently cut for

Rapid Fire is a 1992 USA action crime thriller by Dwight H Little. Starring Brandon Lee, Powers Boothe and Nick Mancuso.
All UK releases have been cut by the BBFC with an 18 rating. Uncut and MPAA R rated in the US.
Summary Review: Highly recommended
When student Jake Lo
witnesses a killing, he finds himself caught between two feuding drug lords. Betrayed and set up by the federal agents protecting him, the only one he can trust is Ryan, a single-minded Chicago cop who reminds Jake of his deceased father. To clear his
name, Jake agrees to help Ryan bring down the drug lords.
No matter how many times I watch this movie, it never seems to get old. Combining elements of American action shoot 'em ups with the chop-socky
combat of the Hong Kong martial arts genre, Rapid Fire seems bent on squeezing as many action sequences as possible into its brisk 90-minute running time.
However, in between fight scenes, the writers and director
actually take time for little things like plot and character development, which are too often lacking in martial arts flicks (can you say Steven Seagal)? The main characters, Brandon Lee's reluctant crime fighter and Powers Boothe's grizzled cop,
actually have some beliefs and internal conflicts that motivate their actions. And on top of that, there are some actors in this movie who can actually act!
Highly recommended for those who want a little brains to go with

The BBFC cut the 2004 Peccadillo DVD with the following explanation:
Distributor chose to remove clear and explicit images of sexual activity which could not be exceptionally justified by their context (some explicit images allowed to remain). An uncut R18 was available.
I saw this film in Greece, and
I'm sure that the American version is probably a little softer than the European (original cut). But I'm not too sure. This film is fantastic! I cant stress that enough. the cinematography... and just the overall satirical and witty premise of the film
is worth watching. I think I'm going to make a t-shirt that says: "Masturbation is Counter-Revolutionary!" This movie is so smart...
Rasputin: The Mad Monk is a 1966 UK drama by Don Sharp. With Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley and Richard Pasco.
Cut by the BBFC for 1966 cinema release. the cuts persisted to VHS. Uncut for DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US
Summary Review: Pretty Good
The movie chronicles the
events of history's man of mystery, Rasputin. Although not quite historically accurate and little emphasis is put on the politics of the day, Rasputin's rise to power and eventual assassination are depicted in an attempt to explain his
extraordinary power and influence.
Noted for stunning visuals on a small budget and a good score but otherwise an average Hammer horror. Entertaining enough but won't stand up to repeated viewing.
UK: The cut cinema version was passed 15

From IMDB. The BBFC cuts were:
the Rasputin/Sonia love scene was shortened to end on the shot of Rasputin tearing open the back of Sonia's dress. The uncut version continues the scene for another 20s climaxing as she gets into bed and Rasputin pulls the
blanket off her (unseen) naked body.
Two shots were shortened in the scene in which Peter is disfigured by acid in order to remove close shots of Peter's scarred face.
Hammer films in 2012 are appealing for information about lost footage from:
an extended fight scene, saying that it was definitely filmed, but there is no known surviving materials. Film restorers have noted a burning log, that suddenly appears on the stone floor toward the end of the fight between Rasputin and Ivan
(Francis Matthews), a clear indication that there is definitely footage missing from this final fight
Also for footage from a scene depicting the suicide of Sonia, if it was ever filmed.
