Comments
Both are much too dark.  I've been told the VHS release is like that too, but in the theater it was much brighter. Both have excessive Edge Enhancement.
 
The R2 UK has massive overscan, especially on the left and right.  I haven't measured but I'd say it's close to 15% l/r and 5% top/bottom. It's as if they performed some sort of zoom.  It isn't a Pan and Scan job because both discs are roughly 1.85:1 . The R2 UK looks very blurry, with much less background detail than the R1.  Check out the grass lawn in the picture of Natasha walking away from the camera.  This isn't just an edge enhancement issue because like I said both discs seem to have the same hideous amount of Edge Enhancement applied.
 
A note about the colors, they are supposed to be this extreme.  They look about the same on both discs.
 
I own both discs, because the R1 looks better and the R2 is the longer, uncut version Jeroen
