    Anybody able to give me details of this disc. I found it on amazon.de but when I enter from the uk site via my account it says that its 4:3 even though the german site lists it as 2.35.1 and Dolby/dts !!

    Are the soundtracks in english and is the picture quality any good ?? Any other sites ( with english translation ?) have it in stock ?

    Thanks,

    M

    Hi manus.

    If I'm not mistaking the Laserdisc is the only way to view the movie in widescreen format. No DTS or DD, just plain old PCM.

    The picture of the laserdisc is average as far as I can remember. I can't help you with the dvd. I have never seen it, but I almost know for sure that it's 4:3.

    There were several DVD releases of Rapa Nui in Germany. One has a widescreen 2,35:1 transfer, but it's not anamorphic 16:9 enhanced.

    And none of the DVDs contains the original english soundtrack. They only have german dubs.

    Note that on the left side of the page, under the accepted credit card logos, is an English language option. Great site.

    Much appreciated, Runar! [​IMG]
