    Hello,

    How does the Korean Superbit edition of Spiderman
    compare to the current US edition of Spiderman?
    Is it a big step up like the SB version of Lawerence
    of Arabia vs. the standard LofA or is it a modest
    improvement?

    Well...apparently you might want to wait for the US edition of the Superbit...complete with NO extras like every other superbit and living up to the title of "SUPERBIT" and....


    ....


    oh wait. I'm wrong. *sigh*

    Just got my R3 Spidey superbit today from www.koreandvds.com IMO the SB is much better than the R1 release. I also got the Black Hawk Down 4 disc SB set(3 dvd + soundtrack cd)& Patriot SB deluxe. For $59.00 shipped, can't beat it.

    Aaron - Did you get a chance to watch Black Hawk Down SB?

    I was about to order that title but I'm still on the fence.

    Thanks for your time.

    Andre, if you want the best video/audio possible, get the R3K Black Hawk Down SB.

    You won't regret it.

    Here is a screen capture of both Japanese BHD and Korean Superbit

    http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...5&pagenumber=5

    Contrary to what the review says, the Korean Superbit wins by better saturation, definiton and black level.

    If you can not tell the difference, good. Buy the Korean version and you can save yourself $51.(R2J is $81 shipped, R3K is $30 shippped)

    The total DVD reviews were for the Korean superbit and the standard DTS Japanese version, not the SE.

    Is Spiderman coded Regions 1,3, and 4 like BlackHawk Down is?

    Yes, only the first disc is coded Regions 1,3, and 4. The 2nd disc however, is coded R3 and the content is the same as the 2nd disc in the regular version.

    Well, the person who did the review on the other site used the Japanese SE to compare with Korean superbit because his previous review showed that the Japanese SE WAS the definitive version to get.

    You do the math,

    Korean Superbit is better than Japanese SE, which is better than Japanese regular verion.

    So I watched Spider-Man Superbit last night and was very impressed with the picture quality and the DTS audio track.

    I popped in my Region 1 version (my wife just rolled her eyes) and did see an overall difference in picture quality. Granted this isn't the most perfect method since the picture is not side by side but I kept going back and forth and noticed subtle differences. I say subtle only because if you have a smaller size screen tv you will most likely not notice a big difference. The blacks were perfect (IMHO) and the picture quality was just as good as the HD version that plays on HBO.

    It was $13.00 well spent. Plus it plays in my Panny RP-91 so I can sell my Region 1 version.

    The Cliffhanger DTS sounded great. Although I noticed 2 one second audio drop-outs. One at the 7:25 mark and one when John Lithgow shoots his girlfriend. The picture quality flucutates from very sharp to some grainy images but I'm not sure if this version is the same as the R1.

    Also, I know Bill has supported this title and I will just add my 2 cents but the Ronin R2 DTS rocks! A definite must buy!

    Thanks for everyone's comments on BHD Superbit. I will be putting my order in!

    I was amazed at the difference in quality between the DD and DTS tracks on the BHD Superbit. Flipping back and fourt made me jaw drop. Definitely a great buy.

    I think the BHD set may be the best dvd I've purchased. I also ordered the Patriot SB deluxe, & Spiderman SB. Very happy to have found www.koreandvds.com. I received my order in 9 days airmail. I just need to go region free to pick up the other great deals they have.
