    Was thinking of getting the R1 2 disc from CDWOW, but found this R2 single disc version on play.com for £5.99 (half the price). There isn't much info about on what is contained on this disk (anaorphic? extras?). Found a review on amazon.co.uk that says there are extra featurettes on the disc, but they aren't listed on the packaging. Does anyone have any more info?????

    If you decide against the one-disc R2 I can fully recommend the 2 disc R1, it's a stunner :smashin: They threw just about everything including the kitchen sink onto the 2nd disc (there really is a mountain of stuff on there), the transfer was nice and the audio wasn't too bad for a 5.1 remix either iirc.

    I saw the R2 one at Play myself a couple of days ago and was curious as to what was on it aswell :confused:
    I couldn't find any info either

    Got to second what Rambo John J said...the R1 2-Disc set is excellent. I was going to pre-order the R2 but, like you, couldn't find any details of the release so I opted for the R1 and didn't regret it.

    The main extra is a really comprehensive documentary (approx 90 mins) with loads of behind the scenes and unused footage - it's great to see the original Giant Squid ending - plus original artwork, concept designs, etc.

    If you're in anyway a fan of the film then I'd say it's worth paying the extra few quid for the R1, I paid £9.99 for it from MovieTyme a few months ago and I think I got a real bargain!

    Well my impatience got the better of me and I ordered the R1 :) . Read a number of reviews from both sides of the Atlantic and noone has a bad word to say about it. Looking forward to this one :smashin:

    Would still be intertesting to hear from anyone who has the R2. What's on the disk?
