Title Best
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure=

The Region 1 disc, released in 2001, does include subtitles and extras. Err, extra the Special Features menu item leads to a separate page where we can choose to play the theatrical trailer not too exciting. The R1 transfer is quite similar to the R4: it is just as sharp, and features the same level of film artefacts and frequent aliasing. The apparently big difference between the two is that the R1 has a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, instead of the 2.0 surround-encoded effort. However this 5.1 soundtrack has nothing significant in the surrounds, either, so this apparent difference isn't significant, either.

The R1 transfer is a touch darker than the R4, and the colours aren't quite as consistent.

Honestly, you can be equally happy with either version, unless you need subtitles or the trailer (get the R1).
