Different DVD Editions

Anyone know a website that list the difference in different DVD editions?? Like The Fast and the Furious, there is the special edition and the trick out edition. Both have different extras.

thanks

How on earth could I not have known about this site?!? This site was made for my region-free dvd player. I have always used the fresnodvdconnection site, but dvdcompare.org.uk has all the different regions.

Thanks!

Glad I could help . . . I don't even have a region free player and I make trips to that site on a regular basis.

Hup! Talemyn - you beat me to it. I was debating about answering this post, but thought I'd be helpful today rather than bitching somebody else out for not using SEARCH, but then as I scrolled down I saw your name and of course when I clicked on your link it took me to dvdcompare! Nice work! You're a good man (or woman?)!

Of course if you really want to compare transfers you have to get two sets of the same model DVD player with the same model monitor and cables and then frame advance the two discs evenly and then measure the number of errant pixels and edge enhancement.

You should be able to get through a single title in about a week this way. It's well-worth the time.
