I have the Bruce Campbell vs. Army of Darkness Official Bottleg Edition which is the director's cut with the alternate ending and deleted scenes added in.

OK. The Book of the Dead version of ED is matted widescreen. The regular version is 4:3 open matte. I think Raimi condones both versions. Book of the Dead has better extras, and the packaging rocks.

I think there's only one ED2 version available, but I'm not sure.

The regular version of Army of Darkness has different extras than the Bootleg version (and official release, it's only called the bootleg version), so extras-wise it's a lose-lose situation. The Bootleg release has Raimi's director's cut.

the offical bootleg also seems "unfinished" and the added "minutes" of footage only make the movie feel sluggish, not to mention some of the best lines in the movie are replaced with poor subsitutes.

Good point. But the tiny Ahses (Ahss?) sequence is better in the director's cut.

Which one of the endings is the "official" one in army of darkness? The DVD version I have has that dumb shopping mall. I like the Post-apocalyptic ending better.

EVIL DEAD

EVIL DEAD 2 - There is also a limited edition Tin box but the contents on the actual DVD are identical - The only difference is a semi-thick booklet that comes with the obnoxiously large packaging.

ARMY OF DARKNESS - This has both the theatrical and the directors cut versions. Years ago, the two discs in this set came out as a "Limited Edition" two-disc set, because they didnt think many people would want it. The disc with the theatrical version of the film was also out and not a limited edition. When there was more demand for this special edition, they released The "Directors Cut" seperately as ANOTHER limited edition release - figuring people could buy it and the theatrical version (which had already been out) and have both discs. The Director's Cut sold like crazy, and there was still more demand. So they released the "Bootleg" version - the disc itself is redesigned, but it has all the same material on it that were on the previous Director's cut discs. This was so they could have both discs on the market, and they could be bought forever. But there was STILL demand from fans that they come out in a 2-disc set, packaged togehter. So that's what the Boomstick edition is, it's pretty much the two discs that have always been available packaged together - plus i think there is some framing corrections on the Director's Cut that weren't on the original disc.

I have the Boomstick edition of AOD and it kicks ass. For Evil Dead 2 I have the limited edition tin:O and I'm not getting Evil Dead till I can find a book of the dead version.
