    They are all anamorphic.

    Be sure to get the UK version of Armageddon: Other European versions contain the theatrical cut instead of the Director's cut, and don't have the audio commentaries. (the R4 Australian version is the same as the UK BTW)
    For R2-R1 comparisons, you better check Dvd Compare.

    Anyone know whether the R2 (UK) version of Sirens is 16:9? None of the above links list it.

    I have UK Sirens and it is anamorphic as with all recent Disney releases in the UK.

    Steer clear of True Lies in the UK as it is heavily cut for censorship (too much violence). If you can't wait under the rumoured 5 Star US release then Australia is the best version currently available, anamorphic and uncut.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Theo, that site also lists Sirens as anamorphic in R1, which it is definitely NOT, it is the LD master rehashed. Looks like I have another PAL disc to add to the wish list.
