    I'm not entirely certain of this... but when Withnail was made it was made as a low budget film, therefore it may well only have been recorded in mono. I have this disk and as far as extras go there is a very interesting documentary on it, but that's kind of it. I got my copy for £16 at Movietyme. It is an excellent film and well worth watching if you haven't seen it. But if your idea of a good film is booming soundtracks [don't get me wrong i love them too] then maybe it's not for you.

    Robocop was an early Criterion release, back then they didn't do anamorphic due to some player doing bad downconversions when in 4:3 Letterbox mode. It's only 2.0 Surround as they keeping it in it's original format as the director intended (same thing goes for ratio)


    Armageddon is a good release (it's non-anamorphic because of Buena Vista, at the time the dvd was made Buena Vista refused to license out anamorphic masters to anyone)

    FYI: The UK is getting a new release of Armageddonfrom Buena Vista, it's a 2 disc set, has almost all the extras of th Critrion release, it should be anamorphic and it should be the directors cut.
