    Howdy,

    The T2 DVD is now out of print in R4. When the distibution contract was finishing in R4, The T2: UE was just released in R1. Basically, the R4 distributor (Columbia Tri-Star) asked for the rights to the UE, and Artisan Entertainment (copyright owner and owner of the bonus materials) wanted too much $$$. And so ended the bitter tale of T2 in R4. Sorry.
    P.S. And I sold my R4 to get the UE, too!! Sorry again!

    Why what's wrong with the UE? I couldn't see a 1st/2nd gen r4 competing with the UE for quality...

    T2 UE is also available in R2, although the deleted and alternate scenes aren't integrated back into the film via seamless branching, as on the R1.

    RickK, get a multizone player! You're missing out on all the good stuff!

    The Region "4" T2 was a joke.
    It was actually the french DVD with a Region 4 bunged onto it.
    The menu was basic, lame and inaccurate.
    The disc would automatically show the French subtitles and you had to switch them off EVERY time you watched it.
    The Region 1 T2:UE leaves it in the dust.
    BUUUT... If you don't want a multizone player or you want the PAL resolution, I've seen the Region 4 disc in a couple of stores in Melbourne.
    Just make some calls.

    If you want PAL resolution, you are far better off ordering the French version which is the UE minus one of the three cuts of the film.
