    Any good release for "Top Gun" around? Heard the R1 isn't that good in terms of quality - what about the R4?<br />I know that it exist but haven't seen a review/comments ...

    There's a good R4 v R1 comparison site which says Top Gun R4 is better than R1 - but still not very good!!!

    <a href="http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Reviews/TopGun.html" target="_blank">http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Reviews/TopGun.html</a>

    I've just ordered the R4 version from <a href="http://www.ezydvd.com.au" target="_blank">www.ezydvd.com.au</a> - I'll let you know what it's like next week.

    Cheers<br />OG

    Reiner - there are as many people who like the film as there are that take the pi55!

    I watched it *again* on Saturday and, whilst it may have more corn than the Jolly Green Giant, it is still one of my all time favourites - probably because when it came out I was 17/18 and would have killed to be flying around like them all day!?! The wife was happy to watch it again too, possibly 'cos she's a Tom fan!

    FYI the R4 version of the film is excellent. The review URL posted above is spot on but probably a little critical. I mean, if you 'watch the film' you won't notice the grain changes etc, obviously you do if you watch it specifically to review it.

    Cheers<br />OG

    compare dvd regions at <a href="http://www.dvdcompare.org" target="_blank">www.dvdcompare.org</a> , covers regions 1, 2 and 4.

    confucius knows of asite to check to see if the film is cut, but i dont remember what it is.

    as a rule, most french and US films go uncut (should be doubly assured with canadian ones then <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> ), not sure about japanese though.
