I assume you all are talking about that REgion 2 CtB "Special Edition" DVD release? I've been debating getting it -- I have the Collector's Edition released in the US, but the picture's not all it could be, plus it's in mono (I realize that was how it was originally released...but come on, it's the 21st Century!).
So is the picture on this UK release much better? And it's in 5.1, right?
I'd say the only thing keeping me from it is that it would be PAL rather than NTSC...I don't know how you PAL-watchers can stand that format. Everyone's voice is so sped up, and so is the action -- feel like I'm watching "Benny Hill" or something. And everyone sounds like they've inhaled some helium. Probably not as noticeable if you're only familiar with PAL...but it's very noticeable when you know what the actor's voices really sound like in NTSC.
