    Should I buy the Region 1 or Region 2 version of this DVD?

    Okay, I just read that the content of the Region 1 and Region 2 versions is the same. However, how are the transfers of the Region 1 and Region 2 versions? Is the picture and sound the same "quality" on both Regions?

    All versions suffer from edge enhancement.

    I have the R1 and the ee could be better. I think the R2 is supposed to be the best although I don't notice the ee after a while.

    Get region 1.

    In the making of it has the line by Ewan McGregor during light sabre rehearsal:

    "Do you want to be in Star Wars they asked me? F***ing right I said".

    In the R2 version this is apparently muffled to cover it up.

    In terms of pic the R1 version looks more natural.

    I know this is off topic a bit, but i remember that my R1 dvd had a number of extra scenes then i had on the vhs version..... im presuming this means that there are cuts, so to what extent are the cuts???

    They weren't cuts in a BBFC style, they were just deemed superfluous by Lucas at the time. The pod race is extended and there is a taxi shuttle scene on Coruscant.

    The R2 version has better picture quality and less EE. IT also has a PAL version of the THX Optimizer which can come in handy.

    what version of Attack of the clones should we go for

    region 1 is uncut
    region 2 is cut
    region 4 is uncut


    is the dvd region 1 the same as the region 4 or this there more extras on the region 1.

    are the extras the same on all regions or is the only difference the headbutt cut,, on region 2

    Surely the main reason for buying a DVD should be whether or not the film was any good:confused:

    If this is the case, then surely you should not consider buying this piece of crap at all.

    Which forum should be used for asking which version of a film has the best PQ, sound quality, or extras then?

    I assume that if someone wants to know which version of the film to buy then they have already considered whether or not they will like the film.

    Even for a pile of sh*te like TPM...

    I am just in a bad mood, it turns out I never actually murdered my wife and buried her under the patio, it was all a sweet, lovely dream.:(

    Don't apologise to Liam as it's him that's in a bad mood, posting stroppy comments like that.

    He is correct though, this particular forum is for discussing various regional differences and technical aspects of a DVD.

    The correct forum for discussing the artistic merits of a film is the TV and Movies forum.

    You are to be forgiven for not realising that there was a seperate forum as hardly anyone visits it, seeing as everyone already knows which films have loud bangs and monsters in.

    That's coz I'm in work trying to finish off some documentation (and not being able to stop having a quick peek at the forum...).
    Yes - see the "Friday night adult viewing on Sky" thread for that.

    Cheers,
    Liam

    You know, I put AOTC in my post at first, noticed the title of the thread and changed it to TPM, assuming I'd made a mistake... :rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Liam
