    Forget the boxed set, as it's total pants! All it contains, are about 6 postcard pictures, the DVD that is exactly the same as the version available separaely on R2 DVD, and a god-awful biography about Tarantino, which was slated in every book review I read on it!

    Also, get the R1 version, as it's got a proper Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround mix, and not the crappy Stereo 2.0 mix on the R2 version, which sounds okay, but not as good as it should do, especially with that "killer" (pardon the pun) soundtrack!

    Yet again, R2 DVD owners get fudge*d over by shoddy UK companies who don't give a sh*te about their treatment of great and classic films!

    Why do they bother at all?!

    A 5.1 sound track would have been nice but for me the picture quality is the real star. Blows away the Region 1 version.

    There again, I also enjoyed the QT interview so what do I know.

    Again with the sound.
    Reservoir Dogs sounds BETTER in stereo.
    Maybe I'm too old, but I don't need rear sound to enjoy a film any more. The novelty wore off ages ago...

    Agree with desade on this one, I've not yet got a full 5.1 setup and although I agree it sounds impressive I'm not about to rush out and equip myself with it.

    Always makes me laugh when I read about people who've bought film 'x' because it sounds great on system 'y' even though they dont actually like the film. Baaarmy.

    I have been saying that since I joined this site as a member. Buying things you don't actually like is baffling.

    Does anyone know which is the best version of "dogs" to buy...

    i.e. is there any directors cut with missing footage?

    Also... same question for Pulp Fiction and Scareface?

    Cheers..

    The R4 version of Pulp fiction is the only one with an anamorphic transfer. Even the R1 is non-anomorphic. The Canadian (but not USA) R1 has some deleted scenes though. Take your choice...

    The R4 (Australian) version has the deleted scenes as well. Its basically the Canadian version (which was basically the laserdisc version in terms of extras) with an anamorphic picture.

    However, Criterion are supposed to be reworking Pulp Fiction for special edition release next year. Could well be worth the wait....

    Desade, the point of 5.1 is to add to the effect of the movie and pull you into the film.If its done right,like the first 20 mins of saving p.r.(dts version)then your hands should be sweaty and your pulse racing.

    Just my opinion of course,how old are you anyway you sound like my dad and he is a right boring git!
