   The local Region 4 release is the clear winner here. The reason for the dramatic difference in quality of extras is because in the U.S, Ali was distributed by Columbia Pictures. In this country, the local arm of Columbia passed on the film and it was picked up and distributed by Roadshow Film Distributors, hence, they have the home video rights as well. As usual, Roadshow have put together a quality package of extras for the local release and have not partaken in Columbia's annoying habit of releasing a bare bones DVD to be followed by a Collector's Edition further down the road.
