I've watched the marvellous SD DVD of Robin Hood many many times but was still blown away by the extra resolution of the HD version. I'm desperately awaiting Excalibur, Forbidden Planet and Casablanca HD.

Does anyone know if there's any difference between the R1 and R2 versions of the "non HD" 2 disk special edition? I had a look on the usual places and couldn't find anything.

For those that haven't yet got the HD-DVD - check this review

It was my first HD-DVD

Am looking at this film on Sky Classics. Is this a contender for the perfect film, or what? Bruce Robinson has spoken of films needing luck, and this one had it: the cast, the music, the magical story, the absolute sense of good triumphing over evil, the romance, the glistening photography... I must have seen this movie 50 times over the years, yet it still gets me every time. When King Richard reveals himself, I always bawl my eyes out. What a film!

We also bought the 2-disc SE of ......Robin Hood recently and I agree that the quality is excellent. There have been some very good DVD transfers of classic films lately; I have a copy of Gaslight (the Ingrid Bergman version) and the transfer is amazingly good.
