United Kingdom George Lucas' THX 1138 is the UK version different than the US version?

I can't find answers on this question anywhere on the internet. Can someone who know please share their knowledge?

I have tried to get answers in the North American thread, but with no results:

Does the UK version have the same movie specifications, subtitles, and extra features?

I have checked www.dvdcompare.net, but they have only listed the US version, and I don't know of any other BD comparison websites.

Help would be very much appreciated!

What is 'BR'? If you're talking about 'Blu-ray Disc', you should use 'BD'. But, considering Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) don't know how to spell, who could blame anyone for using an erroneous initialism for said company's trademark.

Apart from the languages, Warner's discs are always the same worldwide. If the US disc has European and Nordic subtitles, it's almost guaranteed to be the same disc as in the UK.

Thank you. But as I quoted, I've already checked that website.

The US BD has Nordic subtitles. So you really believe the UK BD to have the exact same audio and video encodes, and the same extra features?

Sorry I didn't notice that you'd checked the DVDCompare site. I think a lot of Warners discs are ported over here as well. Most have the FBI Warning on them and thats a good sign. If the UK disc has the FBI Warning I'd say the AV is a port as well. I can' think of any cases that UK discs have the warning and aren't the same transfer as well.

Yes, like I said, video, main audio and special features are always the same between all Warner discs. Sometimes the US disc only has additional languages for America (usually French, Spanish, Portuguese) while the UK has more. In this case though it's likely the same disc is used for the US and Western Europe.

Another of Lucas's films that he fudged up with horrendous CGI, most are subtle tweaks to be fair but there's a sequence that is beyond poor that was added.

This outlines the changes made (to the 2004 dvd anyway).

He's a monster! Another one where we should have had the original theatrical version alongside the Director's Cut. If you notice the change then they probably weren't a good idea.

I don't mind most of the changes in themselves so much, but many of them are so poorly done. Much of the added CGI is very obvious, the extended car chase looks like a remote-controlled toy car driving around, and the 3D scorpion and monkeys are just terrible.

I just got this, and am having some problems. Just wanted to check if anyone else has the same. I haven't been able to access the movie or even the menu. The FBI warning and Warner logo play fine, but after that the disc loading logo appears, and it gets stuck there. I've been waiting for up to 10 minutes! Just wanted to know if I have a defect disc, or maybe its my player. Although I haven't had any troubles with other discs (way newer than this one), so I assume the fault is with the disc.

Disconnect your player from the internet and try again.
Probably BD-Live is giving you a hard time trying to connect and download data on your player

THX-1138 is not on Blu-ray unfortunately. The new CGI director cut is though. it is an abomination.

Wonderful grammar BTW. These Northern Europeans have a better grasp of English than English speakers!

Fortunately, though, it is on Blu-ray, as the director wanted it.

Yes, but he's got a severe personality disorder and will never get what he wants ergo it is not the film as he "...wanted it."

If people keep buying this shit he'll keep CGI'ing it again and again. And again.

My disc wouldn't load until I plugged a 4gb USB stick in the back of my player, now it loads fine.

I might jump on this but the nagging thought of another Lucas director's cut puts me off.

There seems to be quite a few Warner's Blu's at 3.99 at the moment.
