ARMAGEDDON UK R2... question

So I got the UK 2-discer of Armageddon ($12 from CD-Wow!). PAL Speedup isn't a factor for me, and the picture sure looks nice.

However, I have no way of measuring the sound. I have no surround capability, and this being a very sound-driven film, I was wondering how good the 5.1 actually is. The audio bitrate seemed lower than most Dolby 5.1 mixes.

Anyone care to share what they think? I'm pretty sure all the european releases use the same transfer and soundtrack.

The audio is just fine. As a bonus, all the features of the Criterion are ported over except the gag reel and the disc is 16x9 enhanced.

Yeah, I got it for the anamorphic picture, the uncut version, and the Ben Affleck commentary (that guy's hilarious, I tell ya).

Thanks for the audio answer.

... and it even says "The Criterion Collection" on the spine! (but no Criterion number, as far as I recall).

Dazza.

Are there any plans for a region1 release of Armageddon 16x9 anamorphic?

As long as the Criterion sells, DVD666, I doubt it.

Though since I have just bought the r2, I'm confident that there'll be a region one Vista Series out next week!
