Maybe I am getting confused then, have there been any Region 1 SE DVD releases of this title in 2005 .... as the info reports on the link I posted earlier? I know they recently release the Region 2 SE in 2005. What's going on people?!Mart_P said:The disc you've recieved certainly looks like the re-issued keep case version of the infamous 'Baboons Ass' tin. Artisan (now Lions Gate) haven't released a new SE just re-packaged it, were you expecting a brand new edition?
Thanks mate for your reply - very helpful. Looking at your pic - it is exactly the same (see the second pic I posted) as the back of my DVD. The reason I chose the Region 1 SE over the Region 2 was because the reviews seemed to indicate that the PQ was slightly better.Mart_P said:I've attached a pic of the back of original tin release, the special features should be exactly the same as the disc you have just recieved.
I noticed that the DVD release date on that Amazon link is 31st May 2005, Amazon often list release dates in their product spec but this often doesn't mean that the disc is a brand new release with additional content, it may be just a re-issue, a re-pressing of a disc that has been oop or a disc released in new packaging e.g. from a snapper to a keep case.
As far as I am aware there aren't many difference's between the new R2 SE and the R1 SE.
AFAIK the "gold" disks are usually indicative of dual layer, although there is some variation on the actual colour tone (light to dark).Indiana Jones said:Are you sure about that? as my DVDs are a mixture of gold and silver but every single one of them is legit.
Okay mate - right. I thought for a while after I opened the package that I had got something I hadn't ordered!Sick Boy said:That looks like the version I got from dvdpacific a couple of years ago. Minus the slip case that had the planet on.
