    There seems to be three "extended" versions of this film available. The R2 Collectors Edition is timed at 168mins. The R2 Directors Cut is timed at 170mins, and the R1 "New Version" is timed at 173mins. Are these timings only approximate or are we looking at real variations in the running time here.

    If there is a difference between R1 and Reg 2 it could be because of the frame rate R1 runs at 24 frames a second and Reg 2 at 25 so 24 minutes of a reg2 disc would take 25 minutes to get to the same place on a reg1 disc. I think there is a thread on this subject somewhere.
    Only thing is that 170 Reg2 should be 177on Reg1.

    Aha! Forgot about that. Thanks Garrett. I notice that the Region 1 is the only one with a remastered 5:1 soundtrack, so that would seem to be the one to go for.
