    After re-experiencing the [bad!] picture quality of my R1 Titanic zoomed on a 7' screen last night I decided that all [most...] of my non-anamorphic titles would have to go. I'm fairly sure at present that none of these are out as R1 16:9 Enhanced but I have seen a couple as R2/R3/R4 which would be acceptable. Have I missed anything here or are there any better versions?

    Titanic - R1 SE next year
    Highlander 2 Renegade - ?
    Nightmare Before Christmas - R2 available
    Crimson Tide - R3 Korean DTS SE from KoreanDVDs.com available
    Commando - ?
    Rocketeer - ?
    From Dusk Till Dawn - ?
    True Lies - R2 Japanese DTS in Dec, R1 5 Star next year?
    Towering Inferno - ?
    Marked For Death - ?
    Star Trek Generations - R1 SE next year?
    The Abyss SE - Didn't think this was available anywhere anamorphically but on KoreanDVD's they show a release from 2/10/2003 which appears to have a Anamorphic Widescreen sticker on the box but the description says [Screen : 2.35;1 / 4:3LB ]? See http://www.koreandvds.com/dvddetail.html?id=11798

    From Dusk til dawn has a R2 anamorphic SE. True lies has a couple of anamorphics but I'll wait for an SE.

    Titanic, The Abyss and The Thing are all in need of a re-do, in all regions.

    My R2 True Lies 2001 edition is anamorphic (& uncut), DD5.1 sound and PQ is nothing to complain about but I expect new transfer methods could yeild an even better picture/sound.
