    I'm betting the UK release will be under £10 in no time at all. I'll pick it up from a bargain bin some time soon:smashin:

    Ouch - that hurts!
    Wanted the Criterion for the longest time, and even emailed CD-Wow to ask them why they hadn't got it in their catalogue. They said they had no plans, so I got it from DVDPacific for around £18.

    Then a month later CD-Wow posts it up at £21.99
    Then a little later it's at £17.99
    Now it's £14.99
    With various links and vouchers, it's can be had for £11.99 or less. Bargain.

    The new R2 is up on Play, HMV etc at £14.99 with a 24th May release. Better try and get rid of my old R2 quickly then!

    I would bet money on the UK release having a Dolby track running at 384kb/s as opposed to the Criterion's 448kb/s and it does make a difference as i have compared the region 2 Armageddon with the Criterion disc, Region 2 lacked the deeper bass and some extra clarity with the surrounds when compared to the Criterion, even though Spartacus is an older film i think a 448kb/s track will be better.

    Anyways with the Criterion selling so cheap it would be silly to buy a region 2. (( Criterion name instantly means it becomes a collectors item ))

    I would have to agree with you regarding the differences between the Criterion and UK release of Armageddon. I did a comparison review for another site, where I looked at the Japanese DTS edition and both the Criterion and UK Collectors editions and the Criterion did have some subtle improvements over the UK version. If you want the best though the Japanese DTS Edition is the one to go for!

    Just had a peak at the opening sequence of Spartacus and the transfer is far better than I was ever expecting. Considering that the film is well over 40 years old it really is a superb transfer for its age.

    Now when can I fit in the 196 minutes viewing time I need to watch it!:rolleyes:

    just watched my Criterion reg1 tonight. This cost me @$44 a few years back. But it is superb. The sound is nothing special, but its the transfer that matters and it is superb.

    I have also started to listen to the 2 commentary tracks. These are full of anecdotes and facts behind the film, really worth working through. This is a must buy if you like this film.
