Strangely enough, I remember this having a Martian audio track when it was first release, but it's not present on the current one.

Hmm, just checked http://www.dvdcompare.org.uk -- the Martian track is present on the Dutch R2, along with a slightly different set of subs to the UK R2; looks like they decided to switch UK versions somewhere along the line (looks identical to the current R4 release as well).

Choice of a couple of reviews but they both say the transfer is very good thought how it compares to modern transfers is possibly a little unsure

The transfer isn't bad and anamorphic, but there is LOTS of aliasing. The audio sync is a bit flaky too (but it was on the VHS version as well). The Martian audio track is just a joke on the setup menu, it isn't like the Thermian track on Galaxy Quest R1 (hellooo waste of disc space)

Considering its Tim Burton, and popular film, big stars, bound to have a S.E sometime, but who knows when that will be, who want it now.

Its a very nice transfer..looks superb projected (with LCD projector anyway..60" 2.35:1 image). Actually, its one of those films that comes alive on the big screen, and is probably under-rated after multiple TV showings.. 8/10.
