Conan The Barabarian in 5.1 on R2

First Predator SE and now Conan the Barabarian SE in DD 5.1.

http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page...2&title=101246

Who said R1 get all the good stuff.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I do believe that this is the first time EVER that Conan has been released in anything other than mono.

Looks like i'll be buying it for the THIRD TIME !!!

It is also getting released on R4 and with the current exchange rate you should be able to pick it up for a good price...

The sound is fake 5.1. The original masters were destroyed. Apparently, this remix does NOT sound very good at all.

That is not true. I have the new R2 SE and it is a genuine remix using the original elements although the main benefit is to the music. Universal couldn't find the original stereo music tracks for the R1 issue but MGM (who distributed the film outside the USA) obviously had access to them. A couple of years ago the film was issued in Germany on DVD and was given a phoney DD 5.1 re-mix and that certainly does sound bad.

R4 is generally PAL ... there are said to be a few R4 NTSC discs, but Conan is reported to be a PAL one.

Better still, get a multi-standard TV-set - and play back NTSC and PAL in their native format! No conversion is always better than even a good conversion ...
Unfortunately such sets seem to be rather expensive in the US ...
