Does anyone know if there is any difference between the original version and this one? Other that the soundtrack CD of course. I never got round to buying it the first time round so if it's got better/more features I'll get it.

HI,

The simple answer is - NO!

Apartt from the music CD and the actual packaging, I couldn't find any other differences between the two.

Unless the contents change between now and the day of the release, I'd keep that wallet safely tucked away!

Thanks. As I though really. I'll spend the cash on something better then. Perhaps the new Pulp Fiction disc.

Its the 2 disc version as origanlally released on R1 isn't it. On play it says 11 hours of extras which is the same as the US 2 disc set.

Stewarth,

You said: "Its the 2 disc version as origanlally released on R1 isn't it. On play it says 11 hours of extras which is the same as the US 2 disc set."

No, it isn't. The 11 hours of extras, is a complete misnomer! The way the 11 hours of extras are worked out, is as follows:

Audio Commentary 1 - 90m
Audio Commentary 2 - 90m
Music or SFX Only Commentary - 90m
CD Soundtrack - 50m
etc, etc, etc!

As you can see, the 11 hours of extras isn't actually 11 hours at all. What they are doing is heavily elaborating on what "extras" their are. If each commentary is included, well that makes-up just under half of the total duration of extras.

In essence, don't believe the numbers!

I didn't buy Shrek when it first came out, but I have just bought the R1 2 discer recently from Future at £12.99. I thought this was better value, and has a brilliant dts track.

Thanks. Good price that. I might just do that instead. Great film and well worth any expense IMO.:D

Oh yeah, I know how they exagerate the amount of extras. I was just explaining that the original 2-disc R1 DVD was always described as having 11 hours of extras, and this is how the 3-disc R2 set is being described.

Therefore this just confirmed that the 3 disc R2 set is in fact the R1 2-disc set +CD, rather than the 1-disc R2 DVD +CD.
