    Beware. I have read elsewhere (but can't confirm) the soundtrack on the R3 item is DD2.0 Stereo/surround. Not 5.1.

    Apparently it's getting more and more difficult to get discounts at .com, but you can get it a bit cheaper if you order it from the .us site and use the $2 discount link that you can get from the usual place....

    Looks like you're right. Their site now says "Audio: English - Dolby Digital Stereo"!! :mad:

    Mine's on the way now, so nothing I can do about it. Just have to chalk it up to experience! :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:


    EDIT: I hope it doesn't turn out to be like the R3 of Around The World In 80 Days, or it will be a complete waste of space!

    I wouldn't have thought so, unless the site stated that it was 5.1....

    I posted earlier about the R3 version having what i thought was a problem soundtrack. 'LV426' kindly pointed out then that R3 version was in facy only stereo!!
    CD WOW were cool about me returning it and I pre ordered the R1 5.5 version, this was delivered in a matter of days. Great no problem until I now read CD WOW have released the 6.1 R3 version. Do I scream now or later!!!!
    Let me say again CD WOW customer services were excellent but what a pity they didn't have the knowledge and foresight to reccommend that the 6.1 version would soon be available. I think I might be pushing my luck to see if CD WOW will exchange it for a second time. With so few 6.1 DVD's out there it would have been my first choice had i known!!

    It does look like this misses out on the commentaries that are on the other versions, so that might be a reason for keeping your R1 (don't know how interested you are in them).

    ...even better due to the fact you can choose the currency you want to pay with. My credit card charges a fee for non-GBP transactions!

    I enjoyed the film, despite the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow was terrible in it. Well, either she was terrible, or brilliantly recreating the stilted 1930s style performances from leading ladies in B movies of the time.

    I enjoyed the fact that it was all filmed on greenscreen, I thought it was put together quite well.

    I don't always agree with the critics, but then I have a less 'professional' eye and just go by what I enjoy.

    i have just checked my copy and i am annoyed it is the stereo version. i was contemplating ordering the 3 disc version, when i thought i would check my orders at cdwow to see if it said it that the soundtrack was stereo.

    this was what is displayed as being sent:
    DVD Region 3: Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow: Collector's Edition (6.1/ DTS ES)

    i will be contacting them asap and asking them why they have sent out the stereo soundtracked version.i did only pay 8.99 for it so i would suggest you check your order history as it appears that they have to send out the 3 disc collectors edition for free.

    Don't bother, c4lln. It will simply show up as that in your order history because the product was changed to that one. I have Oldboy: Final Edition showing up in my order history, but I actually ordered a completely different version months before the FE was released. Even if you ordered the stereo version, since they've replaced that with the 6.1 release, it'll show up as the 6.1 release in your order history. However, that doesn't mean you actually ordered it.

    Just got this this morning and the DTS track is full bitrate! Only listened to bits of it so far and its LOUD! The bass is great!

    The third disk is a game for the PC, that I haven't tried yet and it comes in a cardboard foldout with the airplane in the other side (the airplane is just some cardboard sheets that can be cut out and assembled). The DVD case and this cardboard case come in a slip-case, which is a bit flimsy. Overall, the package doesn't look great (aesthetically), but I am looking forward to watching it now!

    It looks fine to me. The picture is very soft and stylised anyway, so I suppose it would never suffer from the usual problems. But from what I have watched so far it looks great.
