Holland We were soldiers Blu-Ray (Dutch)

Anyone have the NL (Dutch) release of We were soldiers on Blu-ray?
How does it compare to the UK release in terms of PQ and AQ?
Would be very gratefull if someone could post the info of the Dutch release in detail.

I know the Dutch release has dutch subs and I can buy it for 9 euros.
But I was wondering if the PQ + AQ of that Dutch release is the same quality compared to the UK release?

Thanks in advance!

I saw it in Blokker for 5 euro today, so what can go wrong for that price;-)
What I can remember it isn't bad video wise and quite good audio wise, but it's a RCV/E1.
I would buy the US Paramount myself and maybe there is a very good Japanese disc, but that will be expensive.(edit: not anymore,see next post)

Yeah peptalk, I know they advice the UK disc. But it is without Dutch subtitles and maybe the Dutch Edition is the same PQ + AQ as the UK release?
Hope someone who has the Dutch Edition could enlighten us with the exact specifications (bitrates) of the disc ?

I can't do bitrates, but I can have a look how big the actual size of the movie is.
Hope I think of it tomorrow.

Thanks peptalk
Audio is not as good as the UK edition and judging by the file size I would guess the Picture is not as good either. I will go for the UK edition, thanks again !

EDIT : you should try "media player classic" that gives alot more detail about audio + video !

I have both the US and UK blurays. Although the UK has the lossless dts-HD audio I am sure there is something wrong with it.
The audio does not seem balanced correctly...frequently the rear speakers are far too loud and as a result you can barely hear the dialog coming from the center channel.
I've posted about this issue before and it is not my set up. I have a carefully calibrated Denon AVR-1909 receiver using the Audyssey MutlEQ system. The problem is the disc...it's by Icon Home Entertainment UK who have had several problem bluray discs.

You're welcome.

Will give that a try if it's free. That's why BDinfo isn't working bitrate wise, you need some kind of player where you have to pay for and I don't need it that badly...
