I wonder how the picture will compare with the superbit region 1 - if all things are equal (and they very rarely are), the increase in resolution with PAL over NTSC may yeild more detail, but it really depends on how good the transfer it. The original Pathe R2 release is pretty terrable for picture quality, as is the german one.


I'll probably get it for the extras then I can do my own comparison.

Too bad there's not a "Nekkid pictures of Mila" section in there anywhere. I have this one in HD, so I'm not going to get a better looking version, but it would be nice to check the extras and such.
