Minor spoilers ahead, but honestly, if you haven't seen these classic movies by now, what have you even been doing?! For better or worse, some movie scenes don't make the final cut, or get cut from the script before production. It can be because test audiences don't like a particular ending, running-time issues, censorship concerns, or the fear that a scene could alter the desired tone of a film. Sometimes filmmakers get it right by deleting a scene or changing an ending; and sometimes, they get it wrong.

Thankfully, we live in an age of DVD extras, extended versions, directors' cuts, and the internet. Now, if available, audiences get an opportunity to check out these deleted scenes, many of which, if left in, would have had a major influence on the final film.

Check out this list of deleted scenes that had an impact on the final cuts of some of the best Hollywood films. Let us know what you think about these alternate endings and cut scenes. Should Tony Scott have stuck with Quentin Tarantino’s tragic ending in True Romance? Should they have left Rambo’s shocking decision in First Blood? Perhaps taking out poor Dante at the end of Clerks would have made the film even more memorable. 

Let us know if we missed any important, critical deleted scenes and whether or not the filmmakers made a mistake by omitting or changing any of these scenes. And be sure to vote for the deleted scenes you think would have had the most impact and changed these movies the most.
