I always wanted an anamorphic version of Armageddon, i had the Criterion collection 2 disc version. To cut a long story short after a thread on here i was advised that the region 2 special edition was anamorphic and the sound quality was as good and play was selling it for a tenner. I received the disc today and ive spun selected scenes and studied it close and yes the picture quality is marginally better because of the anamorphic transfer but............... the sound quality is a letdown, the sound lacks the richness of the Criterion edition and the bass sounds distinctly 1 note and isnt as deep, perhaps this is due to the 4% speedup or perhaps Criterion made more of an effort with the sound but to my ears the Criterion edition sounds so much richer smoother and better, from the opening titles to the end music titles i just think the Criterion edition sounds so much better. So i guess i'll be selling it for £8 if anyone wants it. Has anyone else noticed this and would care to comment?
