    Plein Soleil: New edition coming out in France

    "...I really hate it if the producers don't make subtitles..." ...well... these DVDs are made for the French-language market, after all (France, Belgium, Switzerland, Monaco, Tahiti, etc.)... what seems much worse - to me ! - is the fact that almost no French DVDs carry subs for the hard of...

    Lilo and Stitch SE out in Australia

    ...no, I'm not... we're talking Disney here (= mainly for kids!)... do you really expect a French 5-year old to read French subtitles...?... ...and, anyway, "Bambi" has an early nineteen-forties (1942, to be exact) MONO soundtrack, souped up for pseudo 3D-Stereo, in -take a deep breath now-...
