    Been looking for an anamorphic Office Space, and a thread in the software forum made it kinda obvious the SE is never going to show up.

    The Australian version is dirt cheap and PAL. Comes out 2/25/04. Any chance it's better than the UK version since it's newer, or are all the foreign editions the same?

    I can't find the Brazilian NTSC edition. If I search for "Brazil DVD" and similar variations I get, well, the movie Brazil. :b

    I have the Brazilian R4 edition. Anamorphic. DVD5. Haven't watched it yet but...pretty cheap. Check the Brazilian DVD thread for placed to buy from.

    Thanks for the help -- I just ordered the Australian version. It's DVD9 (compared to DVD5 for the Brazilian), so maybe they upped the bitrate.

    Worth $16 to try it out! [​IMG]

    Too bad you spent so much. I am selling mine for much cheaper.

    Update: I received my copy of Office Space from Australia on 2/25, the release date (now that's good service). The picture quality is top notch overall. No noticeable EE.

    The only problem I had is that the Initech badges look kinda moire-pattern pixelated. The same thing happened to one character's shirt that had very narrow stripes. I assume this is a PAL conversion artifact.

    Easily beats the non-anamorphic US version, and it was still relatively cheap. (Viewed on a Momitsu DVD feeding a HS10 over DVI @ 92".)
