We're coming to a crossroads with how we watch film. DVDs and Blu-rays aren’t being purchased with the same enthusiasm as they once were and that means that special features, like deleted scenes, aren’t being seen nearly as much. While blooper reels can play over the credits, true deleted scenes cannot, because that my friends, would be confusing. So who cares about deleted scenes? Well, most of the time, no one does. Sometimes a scene is deleted that helps to make sense of the film, and other times a scene being deleted creates a plot hole in its absence. This is why we're interested in deleted scenes, you see?
So how do these omissions happen? Why would an editor cut out a scene that helps make sense of the film? It's tough to say. There are cases in which the theatrical runtime needs to be trimmed, or cases in which the director/studio simply didn't like the scene and felt the plot hole created was small enough to be acceptable, and almost certainly cases where the team just didn't think ahead. But that's why we're here. We want to clear up the confusion. Maybe you didn't even know you were confused, but you were. Oh, you were. We're going to make sense of everything for you. Sit back. Here are 15 deleted scenes that would have helped a movie make more sense.
15 Did He Say Octopus? - The Goonies
14 Scar The Creep – The Lion King
13 Jack Vs. Lovejoy - Titanic
12 Storm's Punchline - X-Men
11 Bueller's Money - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
10 Original Ending - Paranormal Activity
9 What Happened To Ben Stiller? - Happy Gilmore
8 What's The Deal With Boromir? - Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
7 Coincidental Encounters - Star Trek
6 Don't Look At The Ark - Raiders of the Lost Ark
5 DNA – Prometheus
4 Virus Compatibility - Independence Day
3 Ripley's Grief Aliens
2 Rebooting The Terminator - T2: Judgment Day
1 Maz And The Force - Star Wars: The Force Awakens
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Maz Kanata knows all about the force. She knows who has it, what they should do with it and she even has force relics. What's her deal? Just because she owns a spacebar, heh, that’s no reason she should have all this inside knowledge. The real reason she has so much dirt on the force was, however, explained in a deleted scene. We learn in that scene that not only does Maz have the force, but she's pretty good with it, too. While Han Solo distracts the troops attacking her bar, she uses the force to collapse a roof on top of a whole group of Stormtroopers. There's also another deleted scene in which we learn that the reason Rey is able to pick up the force so quickly is because she had a vision that showed her the entire history of the force. Like a "Force for Dummies" or the CliffsNotes version.
