The reason I suspect that is because the american version contains footage of clouds at the start and end (I think it was), some of which is actually extraneous footage from The Neverending Story.

You can check IMDB's alternate versions page for the movie -> Brazil (1985) - Alternate Versions - IMDb

With the movie fresh in memory, you should be able to determine which version it is you've seen. Either way, you know which one to see the next time you watch it
On the dvd cover it says I have the fully restored version with bonus footage. I meant the aesthics of it reminded me of Neverending Story. I had no idea they actually used some b-roll footage from the movie in Brazil.

The runtime on mines is 143 mins.

Just loved this movie. It's been showing on cable a lot and I finally checked it out a couple days ago. I've seen it three times already. Not a huge Keira Knightley fan but she was cute and quirky here and it worked.

Nice. I have that film and I haven't gotten around to watching it yet. Might bump its priority.

I saw Pacific Rim and it was just so awesome. My inner child was jumping for joy the whole time at the awesomeness of what I was seeing on the screen. Sure there were a few cheesy one liners here and there but Idris Elba and Charlie Day gave great performances.

I saw that on Friday and it was amazing. The character storylines kind of took a nosedive during the second half, but when you're talking about giant fighting robots fighting monsters then who really gives a ****. I love how they seemed to have made CGI in an action movie actually work for quite possibly the first time ever. The secret: makes things slow and lumbering so that everything seems to have a feeling of gravity.

And the Evangelion Easter eggs were fantastic.

The only thing that was messing with me is that I saw it in 3-D and it seemed like something was wrong with the screen. The image kept looking a bit blurred for the first 30 mins of it but then everything worked itself out.

From what I hear, they didn't shoot it in 3D to begin with, so I guess it's just not meant to be seen in 3D. Something about perspectives or some such.

Former projectionist alert

The projectionist at that theater left the wrong lens on the 3D projector. Odds are somebody went and told them and they switched it.

I saw Pacific Rim and also loved it. Wonderful blockbuster with a lot of heart. Yes, cities were leveled without much consequence, but I was able to tolerate it in this movie, unlike Man Of Steel. I would actually love to see more movies with these characters and machines.
