Just here to report the same issue. Both Firefox (extensions disabled)and IE 11 get a media not supported message. I can watch the ad, so there's that.

Glad to see you getting some credit for your work, Cecil. Congrats on getting picked up.

Dude, you are much better than MovieBob. Really well put together video. After finishing the TV series I want to seek out the Director's Cut to see what this film was supposed to be.

An interesting and thorough rundown. I sighed when I saw the length, but ended up watching it through to the end. Curse you for keeping me from productivity (and I look forward to further installments.)

Great to see a WELL DONE movie feature on the Escapist!

I appreciate how in detail this goes, showing why Daredevil's theatrical cut is the mess it is. I own the director's cut on DVD and that is indeed the proper version.

Silly meddling studio.

That was very, very interesting. Thank you a great deal!

You should all watch Cecil's stuff on YouTube [https://www.youtube.com/user/trachenburg], truly some well made and greatly entertaining stuff.

OT: Hey Cecil!, great to finally seeing ya here in The Escapist!, are you going to upload your Good Bad Games stuff?, or just your Exploring/GoodBadFlicks stuff?

Very interesting. I knew a lot of the broad strokes of the stories covered here, but not a lot of the details. I'll be honest, I'd despaired for the site as long-time contributors left en masse, but this did give me some hope that the site may recover.

well dammit I usually come here to complain. Since the recent mass exodus of escapist content producers I hadn't see a single thing until now I've liked. This was really good man. I'll go check out your youtube channel right now.

Now I need to track down the directors cut. "awww I gotcha right in the nuts!"

Ok, I'll give the Directors Cut a try. Clearly the studio was more at fault for the failure as a film. I don't think it will fix it that much. To me much of the problem with it was the over the top Goth(sense depth coffin which was an issue when he was a kid not an adult), coupled with too much plot for one movie to ever contain. I don't see how you can do an Electra, Deadshot, and Fall of the King Pin all in one movie, and do them justice.

This was really good. I'm liking the changes on the site I must say.

Marter's more complete reviews and this excellent introduction to a new content provider makes me miss Moviebob not at all. This rundown felt way more balanced and thoughtful than some of Bob's stuff.

Keep up the good work!

The video itself plays fine for me, but I can't skip ahead or go back by clicking on the time bar, like it was possible with the old video player.

I liked the video though. It was longer than the videos we usually (or used to) get here on the escapist, but it was well paced and had definitely enough content to justify that length.

I think I'll track down a Director's Cut of Daredevil now.

There is quite a bit of love in this movie's production, it's too bad it gets so much hate.
