    The Region 4 version of this disc misses out on;
  • Higher bit rate 448kb/s Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. The R4 version has a 384kb/s Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack.
  • (Possibly the) DVD-ROM enhancements, including a link to the set of Jurassic Park III.
    The Region 1 Dolby Digital version of this disc misses out on;
  • Nothing
    The Region 1 DTS version of this disc misses out on;
  • Making of Jurassic Park featurette
  • Early pre-production meetings
  • Storyboards
  • Production photographs
  • Design sketches & Conceptual paintings
  • Featurette on the making of the “Raptors In The Kitchen” scene
  • DVD-ROM enhancements
R4 vs R1 Dolby Digital
    The quality and extras are basically the same, so the R4 disc is the better choice here because it will not suffer from 3:2 pull-down artefacts and will have approximately 20% more picture detail than the R1 NTSC version.
R4 vs R1 DTS
    The sound quality is supposedly even better on this disc, but you do miss out on many extras and the advantages of PAL, so I leave it up to you to decide on this one.
(Ed. I have read reports that the DTS mix on the R1 Jurassic Park is inferior to the R1 Dolby Digital mix. Unfortunately, as we are reviewing this movie pre-worldwide release, the R1 DVDs were not available to us so we were unable to perform a direct comparison).
