Planet of the Apes 35th Anniversary? Which one?



CD-Wow have the R1 at £10.99, the R2 at £14.99 and the R3 at £8.99. It doesnt say the R3 is the 35th AE but am assuming it must be with 2 discs, DTS, lots of extras etc..

Looks like a no-brainer for the R3, but does anyone know whether there is any difference ( doesn't have the UK R2 or R3 listed).

More specifically how much better is the picture over previous releases - I've got the R2 boxset, and would only really want the 35th AE if it boasted a superior picture.

The R1 review posted by THX suggests it's slightly better but does anyone else have a view?

Personally given a good R1 transfer against a good R2 transfer I would also choose R1.

In fairness I thought the R2 transfer one of the better I've seen on that region & in particular given it's age.
The new R1 is also an excellent transfer & given I prefer R1 I would say it's better.
A lot better ? No imo but glad I purchased.

DTS soundtrack did not add much compared to normal 5.1 but not really compared to R2.
