    Hi,

    I haven't watched this movie for a couple of years, and there are quite a few offers around the DVD sites at the moment.

    Anyone got any views on which is the best version to buy? I heard the R1SE is the best but hard to get hold of? Cd-WOW are doing R2SE for £6.99 but I heard it's not so great PQ wise.

    R2 has fullbitrate dts track, but the R1 Superbit has the best PQ.

    R2 pic quality is very poor.
    R1 pic is very good (chalk and cheese really), and both the DD and DTS soundtracks are belters.

    I have the superbit edition which has DD & DTS, but IMO the DD tarck on this title has the edge.

    The choice between R1 and R2 on this title is a no brainer.... get the R1 .
    Standard or Superbit doesn't matter. Both are better than the R2.

    R1 or 2 Superbit are stunning - especially using progressive!
