Title Best
Hypnotic (Doctor Sleep/Close Your Eyes)R2E

     This film has only just been released in Region 1 theatrically (as of April 23, 2004), so we won't see a DVD from that region for at least several months. At this time, the only other release has been in Region 2 with a version made available in the Netherlands.

     In comparison to the Dutch disc, the Region 4 version misses out on:

  • English dts audio track
  • Behind the Scenes featurette (approx. 9 minutes duration)
  • Bonus trailers for Swimfan, Secretary and About Schmidt
  • Dutch subtitles

     The Region 2 version misses out on:

  • English Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track

     If you are a major fan of this film, then it looks like the Region 2 disc is the one with the best options, both in terms of sound options as well as extras. Still, it isn't an overwhelming win and the Region 4 disc still represents decent value.
