not much more to say except bring it on.................
Ohh, another DVD that I'll have to buy!!
how does it compare to the German DTS release thats been around for ages already?
Or to the Superbit Version of this disk....
do we really need yet another release of this disk?
If you haven't bought it already, like me, sure!
Oh wow - another re release...whoopee...
I recently found out about this release aswell but I'm waiting to see how the picture and sound stack up against the R1 or R4 superbit release.
If it compares well then I think the extra's could well swing it to getting the 2-disc, if not, then I'll be getting the superbit version... picture and sound win out every time in my book
its getting like T2 this......how many times can a film be released?
I believe it's only ever been released once in this country so far, although with all the versions you can get from other countries it does feel like it.
I can highly recommend the R1 Superbit version. Just fantastic!
I am surprised by these comments - I have been hoping for a proper release of this film for years! Great news!
I was a bit surprised myself, but seeing the way that some studios are milking the hell out of some of their more popular titles it's hardly surprising, especially if you own one of the 1st editions.
As technology advances I think it is warrented for new editions to appear e.g. the hi-def version of Terminator 2 was (IMHO) justified, however, for something like a new documentary or a DTS soundtrack that could've easily been put on to the original release I can understand some people's annoyance...
yeah the specs look the same as the german release, looks like ill have to ebay my copy quick!
Having reviewed some recent Pathe releases with less than spectacular transfers, I have a haunting feeling that this will not be anything to write home about in the PQ department. In fact, rumour has it that this will have the exact same transfer as the existing R2, with a DTS track slapped onto it.
Now, while the R2 is highly watchable and a decent transfer, it's no Superbit. I think it's a safe bet that the R1 Superbit will still have the best PQ.
But who knows, maybe they'll surprise us!
I'd certainly wait for some reviews to come out before parting with your cash though
But it's got a dts soundtrack and you know how much better that makes a bad transfer look. It even makes people forget how crap certain films are, not that the Fifth Element is crap as it's one of my fav's. Oh and I'm sticking with my Superbit.
Not one of my favourites films not help with the well over the top performance of Gary Oldman.
I think the R4 Superbit sounds like the best choice, as it uses the R1 transfer source but in PAL.
...or adding to my previous post, the R3 Superbit (identical to the R1) is only £6.49 from CD-Wow using the voucher / discount link combo in the Special Offers forum.
