Title: Which version to get?
Post by: leonefan on September 06, 2004, 11:18:08 PM
OK I'm going nuts I need to see this film right away, I can't wait any longer for MGM to decide when they're gonna release it.  So, which version do you guys recommend?  I'm looking at either the UK Region 2 or the Korean 2-disc version.  Which has better picture quality and so forth because I don't think the Korean one is anamorphic.  Anyone who has these can you please chime in.  Also if you can recommend a reputable place where I can order either one from that would be nice.  The only place I've found so far is http://www.xploitedcinema.com/dvds/dvds.asp?title=1164 (http://www.xploitedcinema.com/dvds/dvds.asp?title=1164).

the R2 version is pretty good quality but it doesnt have the final flashback. However, its as good as ur gonna get i think, its pretty complete. you dont feel ur being robbed of leone's vision.

Try amazon.co.uk if u dont mind paying in sterling.

I have the korean two disc version and i highly recomend it... the quality is good enough... I don't have anything to compare it to but it seems fine to me... also with a quick switch of the disk you have the final flashback... and since there are no words after that point it doesn't even seem like your watching an italian version... i would recomend this version simply because of the beauty of the final flashback... and the quality is fine.

grandpa_chum, is the Korean version censored in any way?  Also, where did you get it from? Thx.

not sure what you mean by sensored, but no i don't think so... everything that is there is there at full force... can't say that it is absolutely complete because i have nothing to compare it to but as far as i've seen no... i believe i caught it on ebay.

I read somewhere that some movies are subject to government censorship in Korea so I thought they might have censored some parts, but I guess they haven't.

BTW anyone ever order from www.xploitedcinema.com?  Are they reliable and trustworthy?

I got the Korean 2-disc from xploitedcinema.com.  I must say this is such an awesome movie, everything about it is top notch from the acting to the music and of course the directing.  ;)  

BTW xploitedcinema.com is awesome.  They have really good service and their shipping is on time and well packaged.  The DVD was in perfect condition.
