It's swings and roundabouts. Some R1's are better Some R2's. You have to weigh up what’s important to you. Early release dates in the US and Canada. The occasional UK disk that has slightly more special features. Additional soundtracks on one region that aren't on the other. Best bet is to use a comparison web site to find out which is the best.

This is fine until you come across a release that has a R2 or R4 release 6 months or more after the R1.

R1's did have more plus points in the past than an earlier release date tho... I think R2s are improving a great deal.

Now all we need is to get rid of the BBFC:D

By the way, is the recent R2 DE version of the Rock uncut?
