    I did the searching and I'm now left with one question.

    Donnie Darko:

    Deleted scenes (German R2) Vs DTS soundtrack (Dutch R2)?

    i.e. is the DTS worth missing the deleted scenes for?

    Cheers

    J.

    Yes, but it only has dts on the german soundtrack, according to DVDcompare.net. the english soundtrack is in DD5.1 apparently.

    I don't speak German, so I'd be as well off with the (discontinued?) UK edition.

    I felt the deleted scenes were important and helped me understand the film. And yes the original UK release has been discontinued. I think CD-Wow might still have it.

    Theres a new version of Donnie Darko coming out sometime this year, might be a directors cut might just be a special edition but its going to be longer and contain more footage.

    Mannannan - sorry, I don't have a 5.1 setup.:thumbsdow

    Wouldn't the extra footage make it a Director's cut?:confused:

    Only if the director added it of his own volition.

    Indeed I seem to remember a film being edited by the producer not that long ago adding new scenes and music and the director didn't know a thing about it until it was released. It was a british film but the name escapes me at the moment.

    Hello hijackers.....:D

    Anyway I've just gone to cd-wow and ordered the region 2 with the extras (deleted scenes) and only a DD 5.1 soundtrack for 8.99GBP. Which is nearly double the price of the ryanair/prism version.

    I think the news about a directors cut coming out in the cinemas put me over the edge, better see it before that!!!!

    Now to avoid spoilers for a bit....

    Anyway, now to hijack my own thread.

    Apart from compression issues why not put a dts soundtrack on a DVD if it exists???? only the dutch get it for Donnie Darko it seems.
