In honor of the Tall Ships Festival here in Beaufort, NC last weekend, I dropped by Wal-Mart and picked up the DVD of Master and Commander.  

Maybe I'm wrong, but I remember a scene from the theater that wasn't on the DVD version.  Near the beginning, after the Ascaron pummels them, they need to refit the boat.  So Jack Aubrey locates some shoals on a map and they take the boat there.  I could have sworn that the theatrical release briefly showed them with the boat on the shoals (near the shore), turned up on its side, replacing the mast.  However, in the DVD version, there's now this short clip of Aubrey coming down the mast, saying to the sailing master "I don't have time to scour through the Brazilian rainforest for the perfect mainmast.  That would take weeks and the Ascaron would be well around Cape Horn by then."

Am I crazy?  What happened to the shots from the theater that show the mast being replaced?  Or am I remembering those from another movie?  Are there other movies where a scene or two is quietly changed before the DVD is released?

Off the top of my head I remember in the previews for the movie "Twister" there was a scene that showed a big yellow construction vehicle flying around that was never in the final movie.  I think they even show it in the video of the Van Halen song.

I know that movies do get changed sometimes, making the transition to dvd.

I did a quick search and found no mention of changes to this movie, and usually websites are quick to point out those things, so I'm guessing that you are thinking of a scene from another movie.

I myself don't remember that scene, but it's been awhile since I saw the movie.

I saw the movie, but don't remember that scene.  However, I think I remember that the main mast had to be replaced, because that's, like, pretty important.

However, I've noticed a lot of changes between movies and dvds, and they are generally edits rather than new scenes.  And, amazingly, they tend to be scenes I thought were important.  No examples come to mind at the moment.

In the movie Bruce Almighty they changed the pager number because in the theater they used a non-555 number.  People started calling it and there was a woman (in New York IIRC) that had that phone number.  People called it asking for God.  In the DVD, it got changed to a 555 number.

And in Utah, a court just ordered this company to stop making and selling edited DVDs where they take normally violent films with mature content and editing them down for other audiences, albiet without the director's permission.

The only time I ever really noticed a change from the theater to the DVD was in Star Wars Episode II.

In the theater there was a scene with Obi-Wan sitting in a very blue-hued room at a computer doing research looking for something.

On the DVD it's in the deleted scenes section.

It's been a while since I watched Master & Commander, but they do replace the mainmast don't they? I mean, it actually breaks off and ends up in the ocean. I know they just repair it the first time, but they replace it later on in the film.

Right?

My memory's bad.

Re: Master and Commander, it's the first time that the entire mainmast breaks off.  The top of one of the other masts snaps when they are in the storm, going around Cape Horn.  My memory has them replacing the mainmast after it breaks off, near the beginning.   :?:

In one scene in Fellowship of the Ring in the theater, there was a pretty easy to spot reflection from a car going by in the distance.  It was touched up to remove it for the DVD.

I would have had fun with them.
