Title Best
Star Wars-Episode II: Attack of the Clones=

    At the time of this review a copy of the the Region 1 disc is not available for a direct comparison. Early reviews of the Region 1 disc claim the picture is "perfect", but the same was said in early Episode I reviews. I am proposing that in time the scrutiny of R1 reviewers will also uncover the same aliasing issues as found in the R4 release. As soon as any direct comparison can be made or additional information comes to light I will update this review.

    The Region 4 version of this disc misses out on:

  • Spanish Dolby Digital 2.0 surround encoded stereo track
  • French Dolby Digital 2.0 surround encoded stereo track
    The Region 1 version of this disc misses out on:
  • Danish subtitle track
  • Finnish subtitle track
  • Norwegian subtitle track
  • Swedish subtitle track

    I will propose at this time, that apart from the usual PAL - NTSC differences, the sound and image quality of the R1 and R4 are roughly the same. Apart from differences in the alternate language and subtitle tracks, both the R4 and R1 DVD releases are equally good. The R2 UK release is also comparable in features and quality to the R4 release, but suffers from censorship, with one second of fight scene snipped to remove a head butt.
