    The 1976 Westworld sequel, "Futureworld" has just been released on DVD R2 in the U.K.

    Does anyone have it and can comment on quality, specs, etc?

    No, not yet. But thanks for pointing this out. I have been waiting a long time for it.
    Wonder if it's now finally coming to R1 too...

    Play list it as 'Full screen 4:3 and DD 2.0 stereo' but haven't seen it yet and don't what the original specs of the film were.

    The correct aspect ratio for the film is 1.85:1

    Could someone with the Region 2 DVD, please compare it to the following three screen captures (taken from the laserdisc) and provide feedback as to where there is more/less image?

    This is about 17 seconds in...
