    Am seriously looking forward to the first 2 movies - I've got the original R1 incarnations that are looking a little old now, but as Batman Returns was the first movie recorded in Dolby Digital, that should be a nice DTS mix (well, I can hope) :)

    I must admit - I got a little hyped up when I saw these...then I remembered one thing.
    Warner Bros + DTS Sound = non starter!!

    Maybe these are "Eastern versions" shall we say. I'm not expecting anything until I see DTS on the pack of Batman Returns in WH Smith...

    It's cheaper to buy the box than the first three individually, so a lot of us that wouldn't touch movie number 4 with a barge pole are going to end up with a copy after all.

    I suppose that's one way of ensuring some royalties for Joel, George and Arnie! :)

    I know we'll be doing the R1 versions and the R2 Japanese box set if that helps.

    It appears that it's practically a world wide release around the 18th October-ish give or take.

    The R1 releases will be 4 reviews, most likely by several different reviewers and will probably be first. I'd imagine we could see them sometime next week - depending on when the disks arrive with the team.

    The R2 Japanese box will be following, it's being written by one reviewer (So a bit of an epic then) and will probably appear towards the end of the month, again depending on how long it takes to come from Japan.

    Of course, we'll be doing the bitrates as usual and if the reviewers have them, hopefully a PQ comparison of the old vs new versions (I know I have all 4 original movies - Hate B&R but had to have the set), similar to the reviews of The Thing and The Ultimate Matrix Collection.

    We SHOULD have a review of Batman Begins R1 next week as well - again, depending on when the review disk arrives.

    Is Batman forever still cut to pieces over here ?? Think I'll go for the R1 box set just to be safe.

    I might be mistaken but havent we already had a thread about the new releases for a month or so now? or did I imagine it?

    Anyway if you want the best prices but dont want the Boxset (B&R never happened :mad: ) then I would recommend the Region 4 Australian releases which are about £7 each from EzyDVD, DVDCrave and other R4 retailers and which will be identical to the Region 1 releases apart from they have the better artwork.

    Also, the SE UK release of Batman Returns will still be cut so its definitely one to avoid but with retailers asking around £15 for it and with the Uncut R4 release available for £7, who would actually buy the UK release lol :D

    I just read the BBFC website which states Batman Returns was classified in September and is STILL censored, 7 seconds cut for a scene which they consider imitable, what a totally looney system we have for classifying films, for the life of me i still don't understand how films like this with their fantasy elements can be censored and i still wonder why Warner Bros don't appeal such decisions as surely Lethal Weapon 2 or The Matrix could both be uncut if re-classified.

    Warner had their chance of releasing The Matrix uncut last year but didnt bother to re-submit the film, guess they are happy that the UK public dont get to see one of their most profitable films in its uncut form.

    Where's the cheapest price for the R1 boxset? I know I'll never watch BaR, but I still feel the need to have it. In fact, I could probably do with just the first one. Damn my obsessive nature!

    Then again, in a cut state it's mercifully shorter - depends how long you want the agony to last, I suppose.......

    If only I had the disks :) I believe I'm doing the R2 boxset so it'll be some time :) I've got Mr. Benn to do first (and my Halloween choice of A Nightmare on Elm St.)

    All play and no work........or something

    Can anyone confirm?
    Do these new releases,definately contain an actual DTS track?
    I am very sceptical, bearing in mind that this is so unlike Warner Bros, to include DTS tracks.
    Thanks, i can at least purchase them if this is true!!!

    It has been reclassified to a 12 certificate and the BBFC website lists no cuts ( although it may have been precut )

    Yes they all contain DTS tracks in the UK and America and around the world also.
