    Does anyone know if this has come out in R1 yet?

    I think the original mummy dvd is the same for both R1 and R2, but the mummy returns R2 has a few cuts(headbutts etc..).

    I know play.com is selling the R2 version for 27.99, but i'd like to see what the R1 will offer (usually more extras or DTS)?

    Has anyone seen this special 4 dvd set for region 1?

    If anyone has any info, please let me know.

    thanks

    :)

    The R4 is the best bet at the moment and price is about £25 inc delivery. Has all the extras and DD/dts

    yes, R4 is the best (uncut, superior DTS audio)

    Erm....... anyone know of a good site that sells the region 4 version? Possibly a uk one, so i don't have to pay tax on customs if ordered from say...www.ezydvd.com.au?

    Its 82.85 Aus $ (inc p&p) from the above site = £30.35 (before customs tax).

    Can anyone beat this?

    Thanks.

    Ordered from Aus Land last night (above website), and they have posted it today (sent an email confirmation). :)

    They mentioned that they do not include an invoice with the package. Me thinks this is to try and fool customs, so i don't have to pay customs tax... i will find out soon enough!!!!!

    watch this space...:)

    Hi all,
    Got my 4 box set from Ezydvd today,very nice it is too.
    All you have to do is ask them to mark it as a gift and you should avoid import tax.
    Ezy have been bl**dy brilliant for me,never let me down!
    And with the good exchange rate it's cheap too.

    hope this helps...
    Q :D :p

    The R2 Ultimate Mummy Collection 4 Disc Set states DTS on the packaging!

    Does this mean that both The Mummy Returns Special Edition & The Mummy Ultimate Edition have a DTS soundtrack or is it only The Mummy Returns disc that has DTS?

    Anyone got one?

    both R2 and R4 have dts soundtracks.
    I chose R4 as it is not cut. R2 has a cut in the mummy returns (heabutt in the girl fighting scene).

    Hi,

    I was wondering if any of you can help me out here, please.

    I purchased The Mummy 4 DVD Boxed Set, but was really disappointed in "The Mummy Returns", as it was probably one of the worst sequels I've ever seen. As such, I am returning the set for a refund/exchange.

    My query, however, is this: I want to obtain the original "The Mummy" film, complete with DTS soundtrack, and have located 2 editions still available - the R4 "Ultimate Edition" (for £22-75) and the R1 "Ultimate Edition" (for £23-75).

    Sadly, at the time of writing, neither DVDCompare or the DVDRewind sites are working, and I can't accurately compare the R1 and R4 editions, to see which is the best. Hence, I need your help, please.

    Should I go for R4 or R1? I have a multi-region player, and a compatible NTSC TV, but have never seen an R4 DVD, so I don't know what the picture and sound quality will be like.

    Any advice, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Pooch

    Received my dvd package from ezydvd. It only took 5 working days. The package was squashed a bit, but the discs are fine. Good quality and audio (DTS on both).

    Anamorphic 2.35:1 PAL is very good. I would recommend it. You also get a single movie frame of the original Mummy returns film! Much better than the R2 release, as it is uncut.

    Sweeeeeeeeetttttt!
