Title Best
Agnes of GodR1

    The Region 4 DVD misses out on:

  • Theatrical trailer for A Soldier's Story, which was directed by Norman Jewison.
  • Theatrical trailer for The China Syndrome, starring Jane Fonda.

    The Region 1 DVD misses out on:

  • Additional foreign language soundtracks.
  • Additional foreign language subtitles.

    While the Region 1 release includes two trailers, these are incidental extras at best. From what I could determine, both discs present anamorphic video sourced from the same high definition transfer. I was unable to view the Region 1 disc. Some US reviewers were not thrilled about the picture quality, a judgement I do not hold for the Region 4 disc, despite the presence of minor film artefacts.

    The Region 1 DVD technically wins out with its duo of trailers. However, if you are loyal to Region 4, then the Australian release is perfectly adequate.
