    So R2 Europe and R2 Japan are both getting 4 Disc BTTF sets in November.

    So what about R1 and what the heck is going to be on the 4th disc? Anything that we don't already have in R1?

    Considering it's going to be the 50th anniversary of when lightning struck the clock tower...

    I did some digging and apparently...

    The 4th disc will include the extras that were only available in the R1 set.

    Here are some details:

    [​IMG] I'm guessing the Japanese version is the only one that will have DTS.

    this new 4 disc R2 box set still not includes some audio commentaries, available on the R1 DVD.

    the R1 DVD is the most complete edition of BTTF

    How about releasing corrected V2 versions like they said they were? I live in SoCal and every store has the old set.

    The corrected release is available from Amazon.com at least where I got mine so I give Universal some credit on their handling of this issue. Perhaps the stores in your area ordered many copies of the initial release when it was new and still have a lot of old stock left.

    The first three disks of this set with the films on are identical to the existing set in R2/4. This means that the Australian and UK releases will also have DTS for the films.

    As said earlier the bonus disk will have the bonus features they missed of the R2/4 set compared to R1.

    However as they are not remastering the first three disks they will miss out on the extra commentaries. I would rather have these than DTS.

    A question about the DTS in R2, what sources were this DTS mix derived from?

    Oh boy......that's going to open up a very familiar can of worms.[​IMG]


    Well the answer to my question is apparently that the DTS track was created at the same time as the DD tracks. Thanks.

    A 20 year old film with limited fidelity. Not really material that can shine with half bitrate DTS. Parts II and III are another matter though.

    the same could be said for any film from or before the 80's but it sounds richer and more dynamic

    I personally thought the DTS tracks on the R2 BTTF set were stunning.

    I picked up both the R1 & R2 set when they were released to get the best of both worlds, so I won't be buying this "new" set.

    Anyway, I have a feeling that R1 might be seeing some ultimate editions in the near future, which will hopefully include the deleted Stoltz footage.

    I doubt we'll ever see the Stoltz footage, anymore than we are ever going to see the Keitel footage from Apocalypse Now.
