    Once upon a time in the west- from what i have read the UK R2 is
    dolby digtal 1.0(mono) only? true/false
    but the US R1 version(out next month) is dd 5.1?with the same UK R2 features

    also

    A fistful of dynamite - a bit of confusion here, some have said dolby surround(3.1) a lot of said dolby digtal 1.0(mono) also i understand theres not a US R1 version at the moment. does anyone know when this might be released?

    so it seems for 'once upon a time' its best to wait for the R1 DD5.1 version

    For a 'fistful of dynamite' can anyone confirm the UK R2 audio format also the release of the US R1 version.

    Thanks

    hmmm i honestly thought REWIND had the specs for the R2 UK of once upon a time in the west but its actually A fistful of dynamite(R2 UK) which states its DD 1.0.ok, so both the films are not mono, well i might as well order them now.
    thanks again

    OK ive just popped my disk that arrived from play today (r2) to clarify.

    if does have a dolby 5.1 soundtrack
    the picture is anamorphic (1.78 i think)

    the picture looks absolutely stunning for a film of this vintage.
    the packaging is very impressive too. all in all a worthy purchase.

    i'll have to convince the wife its worth a watch tonight. she hates westerns.

    means exactly that THINK or GUESS or MAYBE

    basically there are black bars above and below picture
    on a widescreen set.

    couldn't say exactly what the ratio was, my intention was to give an indication. Basically it wasnt 4:3 and it doesn't fill a widescreen set

    well finally got once upon a time in the west, and a fistful of dynamite on dvd.

    Once upon a time is DD 5.1 but A fistful is DD 1.0 mono. so the member called "mission" was wrong in saying it was stereo 2.0

    i was quite angry in being told from here it was DD 2.0 because if it was stereo my denon amp could used pro-logic 2 for the 5.1 sound.
    this was the very reason i used this forum to ask this question to anyone who has got this film who could give me a 100% answer.

    im glad i only paid 6.66 pounds for it otherwise i would have been gutted.

    does anyone still know when the US R1 of "a fistful of dynamite" is due AND if it is DOLBY DIGITAL 2.0???

    thanks
