    After all the fuss about Star Wars it looks like the great Shawshank Redemption has been over looked again. Well I intend to get it at the weekend. First of all I was wondering if anybody has it yet? If so, I hope you don't mind me asking:
    Whats the piture like, better or worse than the other 2 releases?
    Whats the sound like DTS, DD5.1?
    Whats the over all set like?

    Someone please answer.

    I watched the R2 the other day. Picture is a trifle soft (very slightly) and IMO seems a little darker, but not significantly. Overall sound and picture are fantastic and is a massive improvement over the last version. I have listened to the DTS soundtrack but I dont think there is any substancial difference between that and the DD soundtrack. The packaging is quite good, the 3 discs are held in a binder similar to the r2 Alien quadrilogy set, set inside a cardboard slipcase. Very comprehensive package in all aspects.

    Hopefully, my copy should arrive today. Sound should be better as it's now 5.1 DD, rather than just 2.0 DD.

    Well as long as its an improvement I'll have to get it. Would have likely got it away. I have the old two sided DVD release which at the time was quite a joy to get my hands on, so the new one can't be bad. Thanks for the replies. Cheers
