    Pans Labyrinth LE preorder DTS R3

    I ordered my copy from Axelmusic. More expensive than Yesasia, but I don´t have to worry about customs. However there will be an R1 edition which will have a DTS-ES soundtrack, but probably not as nice packaging as the R3. The book that comes with the R3 set is supposed to be neat. The front...

    R2 Japanese Superbit PQ vs R1 Superbit PQ??

    I don´t know since I have never done a comparison myself. Although I would be surprised if the Japanese should be worse than R1. I have never been disappointed with any of my own Japanese Superbits. I do recall that some Japanese Superbits didn´t have a DD 5.1 track, instead it had just a...

    Are these titles available anywhere anamorphically enhanced?

    The Abyss - not anamorphic, but there has been rumours that the upcoming Cinema Reserve edition might be anamorphic. Color Of Money - according to Dvdcompare you should chose R2/R4 because they are anamorphic (R1 is not), so I guess R2UK must be anamorphic. Eastwood westerns - the R2UK SE...

    Captain Jack Sparrow BUGGERD on chapter 16!

    I´ve not seen anyone make a comment about it in R1 reviews, but then I´ve not seen comments about it (or the syncproblem) in reviews of the Swedish edition either. So I guess people doesn´t seem to care to much.

    Captain Jack Sparrow BUGGERD on chapter 16!

    Yes, the Swedish edition has the same problem. Some people also claim that there´s a audio syncproblem. The Swedish distributor is aware of the problem, but it will not be fixed until the next batch that ships in the beginning of the next year. Click the link below to see the problem...

    Korean DVDs

    Korea only censors sex/nudity but no violence as far as I know. www.dvdfromkorea.com is another good Korean DVD site.

    Howl's Moving Castle R2/Japan November 16th - Subtitles ?

    Just got news from another forum and three members have just checked their copies. They say the menus are fullscreen but the actual movie is anamorphic widescreen. By the way, I got this answer from DvdfromKorea: "Thank you for your e-mail. Please refer to the attached image and you will...

    Howl's Moving Castle R2/Japan November 16th - Subtitles ?

    OK, thank you Tim! Please check it again for us. But I don´t understand, normally it´s rather easy to see if a movie is 4:3 or 16:9? My wide screen-TV automatically changes aspect ratio depending on what kind of signal it gets. For example, if I´m watching a full screen movie, I get black bars...

    Howl's Moving Castle R2/Japan November 16th - Subtitles ?

    Tim: It would be very interesting to hear what Dvdfromkorea has to say about it! This really sucks! I´m not importing any more editions from Korean websites from now on. It´s such a hassle to return DVD:s and try to get compensation for it.

    Cool Hand Luke - upcoming UK region 2 bare bones?

    Gordon: Doesn´t bare bones mean that there will be no significant extramaterial? So it could be a remastered transfer despite the fact that it is a bare bones edition? Personally I don´t care so much about extras, but I want the best A/V quality as possible.

    Cool Hand Luke - upcoming UK region 2 bare bones?

    Are the Warner UK editions as good as the Warner R1 editions? I mean are the R2UK editions restored in the same way and have equal PQ as the R1 editions? Does the UK editions have the digipack or slipcase packaging? Has this release been announced for R1? If not, this is a must buy.

    Frank Miller's Sin City Recut & Extended

    I might have missed it, but does the Extended cut have DTS sound? And by that I mean the "Extended Version". I know that the "Theatrical Version" has DTS.

    Bridge on the River Kwai transfer problems

    The film is split over two DVD-9 discs, about 8.5 Gigabyte on each disc. The bit-rate varies, but it´s usually around 7.0Mbps. Well, I don´t know how it compares with the old R2UK edition and the R1 edition, since I haven´t seen them. But I would be surprised if the Superbit looked worse. The...

    Sony - Superbit Mgm Titles

    As Matthew sad, the PAL problem is not an excuse. You have at least two huge regions to choose from, R3/HK and R2JAP. The good thing however for you to be able to play R2 discs is that some the Japanese Superbit titles come from other companies than Columbia Tristar (and now also MGM).

    Sony - Superbit Mgm Titles

    Yes, I do have a region-free DVD-player, but I´m surpised to hear that so many Americans don´t. I´ve been waiting for R1 Superbit releases of "Gandhi" and "On The Waterfront", but since it looks like nothing happens I have now ordered the Japanese Superbits.

    Sony - Superbit Mgm Titles

    Why release titles as Superbits when they already have anamorphic transfers and DTS sound, like "Ronin"? I´m not sure what Mark_TS meant with "Adventures Of Baron von Munchausen" and "Easy Rider" as they are already Superbits? All "old" movies needs a new transfer not only Superbit treatment...

    Sony - Superbit Mgm Titles

    I have it and it looks OK to me (the Dutch edition has a nice slipcase), but as pointed out before, it probably needs a new transfer rather than just a higher bitrate. I´ve been thinking of buying some of the Japanese MGM Ultimate Editions like "The Great Escape", "Rain Man" etc., but I´m...

    DVD's not available in Region 1

    Well, the problem is that you usually can choose subtitles if you watch the the movie with the French audiotrack, but if you, for example, want to watch the movie with the English audio track, the subtitles defaults to French and they are often unremovable. Mikel: One suggestion is that you...

    DVD's not available in Region 1

    Just remember that many French DVD´s have forced French subtitles which is really disturbing if you don´t speak French.

    Where do you get your DVDs from?

    I mostly use Axelmusic.com for my R1, R3, R4 and R2JAP orders. Prices are not that expensive, shipping costs are inluded in the price and you don´t have to worry about customs if you live inside the EU. They are also very serviceminded. They can import practically any title you wish. I no longer...
