R2 Usual Suspects?

Is it just me, or does the British R2 SE of the Usual Suspects seem to be just a tad bit better than the R1 SE? There are more featurettes on the R2, but I wonder if they're just recycled information. Should I just stick with the R1 or shell out the extra cash for the R2?

R2 - Just make sure it's the Special Edition, for an exclusive extra (although it is only 6 minutes long) plus the Region 1
Special Edition also has a 4:3 version on the same side of the disc, the Region 2 doesn't so quality maybe affected on the Region 1, by
having less space available due to the 4:3 option.

In fact the 4/3 and the 16/9 ratio are the video compression ...
There is nothing to do with the space quantity available.

The R1 version is a NTSC version.
There are 525 horizontal lines definition.

The R2 version is a PAL version.
There are 625 horizontal lines definition.

In PAL format there are 25 frames per second to encode.
In NTSC format there are 29.97 frames per seconds to encode.

Guess who the winner is ? ...
