|Highlander: 15th Anniversary Edition||R4|
This one is rather an interesting comparison, at least on paper;
The Region 4 version of this DVD misses out on;
The Region 1 transfer is horrible. It has got to be the grainiest transfer that I have ever seen, particularly in the Scottish Highland scenes. It is all but unwatchable. If I were to give the video a rating, it would be 1 star or perhaps 1.5 stars, it is that bad.
The Region 4 transfer, on the other hand, as described previously, is superb. There is no comparison here between the two - the Region 4 version is so far superior visually to the Region 1 version that it isn't even a vaguely close contest. But...
The Region 1 extras are undoubtedly better. The commentary track is a very good one, and the photo gallery is excellent. What to do?
Undoubtedly, the Region 4 version is the version of choice for the transfer, but if you can source a Region 1 copy, it is worth buying for the extras alone. You'll never watch the Region 1 version for the transfer as it is horrendous in comparison to the Region 4 version, but you will enjoy the extras.
