    I'm interested in purchasing the following recently released R2 DVDs from the UK but I'm not sure about the quality of the transfer and whether or not they are widescreen. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it:

    Futureworld

    Music of Chance
    Niagara Niagara

    Jay E: Check http://www.dvdcompare.org.uk for information on different titles by region. It includes a list of features and a comparison blurb. Very informative.

    Niagara Niagara


    Very nice 4:3 image. I think it may be pan & scan -if it is, it's very well done.



    Slacker


    Correct 4:3 image. Quality is poor but to be fair I've only ever seen it like that.

    Both of these discs can be bought cheaply and if you're a fan it's well worth it.

    Futureworld is fullframe, don't think p&s, perfectly reasonable picture. Sound DD stereo. Always discounted at Play, but not sure about which sites both stock it and export to US.

    Does anyone know of a particular reason why Futureworld is not released in R1 yet?

    Thanks everyone for the information provided.

    I saw the R2 DVDs oF Greetings & The Music of Chance at a local store and, regretably, they are full screen.
