For fans of the film, this is now getting a HD-DVD release in Europe.

I have never seen Sirpico. It was on an R2 dvd some time ago. Horrible budget version. Nearly bought it just to see it. If it gets a good treatment, I think this time i'll be investing two hours of my life
Would be interesting to see the diff between the R1 and R2 editions

There's nothing 'horrible' about the current disc; both R1 and R2 are identical (except for sound according to Rewind), they both have very nice anamorphic transfer and several short featurettes. I went for the R1 for the mono sound option, and it was as cheap as chips, but far from a 'horrible budget version'.

I stand corrected. I have a tendancy to see budget, read poor. My choice of words was poor.

Open your eyes... there are some gems out there which you can class as budget. These may have extras (Not that that should sway you verdict) but more importantly they usually have their original audio track and a nice progressive anamporphic print!

And always check in here, Mr Hodson will put you right
