    Hi,

    Does anyone know what is the difference between the current version and the upcoming Moulin Rouge DVD to be released on Jan 14, 2003? Best Buy is listing it for $14.99, cheaper than the current version.

    It's a single disk version for $14.99. I just hope the 2-disk set is not going OOP, otherwise I'll need to pick up a second copy.

    It could be a price drop or...

    It could be the single disc re-issue similar to Big Trouble In Little China.

    I.E., 16:9 widecreen & 4:3 pan & scan versions on the same disc with just Dolby Digital 5.1 & 2.0 Surround soundtracks and the commentary track.

    It is a single-disc reissue. They are dropping the second disc like in other releases (Fight Club, BTinLC, Cast Away) and lowering the MSRP. Pick it up now if you already haven't.

    I suppose the 2 disc version will still be available in the Baz Lurhman boxed set. I haven't heard anything to the contrary.

    I read somewhere that the first release Moulin Rouge DVD has lip sync problems. Have you seen that happening to yours?

    Also, DVDSoon (Canadian) online retailer is selling the first release Moulin Rouge DVD for less than $12. It is a Region 1 version. Is there any difference with Canadian and US versions?

    if it were to suffer this DVD-Rot you speak of both would deteriate anyway so what would it matter. I personally don't think there is such a thing. But some people do like to have a back up copy of a OOP disc as a just in case thing.

    You guys have seen Moulin Rouge! over 15, 30 and 40 times respectively?! Great mother of pearl! [​IMG]
    It's a jolly good movie, but I twice is enough for me at present.

    Bob Maged,

    I can't tell from DVDSoon website if it say "Red Windmill" on the spine. Has anyone bought this DVD from Canada?
