Even cheaper with AV Forums' own CD WOW Voucher.
Is this the best version to get, or should I consider the R1 Superbit?
This might help
Comparison of versions of Fifth Element
Personaly I would go (and have gone) for the UK SE.
I prefer the higher resolution of PAL video and the 2:3 pulldown on NTSC films annoys me especially on sweeping pans
Mine has just been dispatched. Thank's TheCrow for a bargain.
I have the R2 2-disc SE myself and I have to say that if picture quality is important to you then you may want to go for the superbit version. The R2 SE looked a bit grainy on my projector (Z2). Don't get me wrong, this is a good bargain, just the transfer isn't perfect...
Maybe this will help -
Arrived this morning via airmail post
That was quick.
It looks grainy on my very old, 29" Toshiba telly! Were you being polite, mrbloke?
Anyone that has viewed and can recall the 'quality' of the terrestrial broadcast of this film, will know what to expect. Grain, scratches, dodgy brightness/gamma... it has it all!
Still glad I have it, though!
How about the PAL R4 Superbit version
I had ordered the R1 Superbit (which is superb with a great DTS soundtrack) when I saw this.
Not seen any reviews on the R4 though!
I have the R3 Superbit and it's probably one of the best pictures I've seen.
