    March of the Penguins to DVD Nov. 29

    I'm not bashing this particular move/soundtrack since I haven't seen it, something which I implied above (though didn't state clearly). I am criticising documentaries that use this kinda trick. I have seen hundreds of documentaries and nature programmes and everytime there's this...

    R1 Canadian DVD Store - French tracks

    NOOOOOOOO don't try that, at least not as an overseas customer. Feel free to check out the threads on dvdforums, dvdswaps etc about how dvdsoon handles their customers lately. Most european DVDsites have removed dvdsoon from the recommended retailers list. You may be more lucky in canada...

    R1 Canadian DVD Store - French tracks

    I assume you wanna know if the french track is in fact Quebequois or french. the only source I ever found for that info is the LES ANNEES LASERS magazine. as for canadian retailers: I'm not sure but playusa are said to sell Canadian R1 Most of us usually try to avoid canadian titles...

    Head-On

    I have the german R2. Very good film indeed. I can tell you about the quality of the german DVD but it won't help you much I think (esp since it has no english subtitles.) Suffice to say that I liked the film, but haven't seen any other films by Fatih Akin.

    Adding personal content to DVD Profiler

    As a regular contributor and user of the IVS forum I have to say that: yes the rules are anal-retentive but with all the bad data that had been contributed lately it was necessary. There were people submitting made up info, it was unbelievable. Oh and the use of IMDB was/is a huge...

    HD-DVD/Blu-Ray Merger Possible?

    I have to say that I'm surprised by this, maybe the industry has learnt from the DVDA-SACD debacle afterall. This certainly sounds promising, lets hope they can reach common ground.

    Keep Commercials off DVD! Sign linked Petition in Post #76

    maybe not, but the only other alternatives are plastering Alliances HQ with ads about anything, or burning down Alliance HQ. Neither of which is doable, so a petition and boycott of titles with forced ads is the only way for us. Isn't business just politics (and vice versa)?

    Elijah, I'm not sure whether you are joking or serious :confused: but surely the money you pay for the DVD help to pay for the DVD, no?? this site has advertising because its free to use. but because of this ad on the DVD, the DVDprice isn't smaller than usual, so essentially you pay...

    Spaceballs CE: Nose Gag Fixed

    Matthew, foreign translations of any film title rarely have anything to do with the actual original title. Spaceballs is an injoke which doesn't translate into french. There are numerous examples, And it goes both ways. I still don't understand why the mexican "Amores Perros" is known in...

    Spaceballs CE: Nose Gag Fixed

    interesting to see that while dts is on the menu, the sleeve omits that info. I bet that will scare a few people when they are going to pick it up.

    not really irony. We pay for the DVD and get forced to watch an ad. on this siter however we don't pay, and that site needs to get the money to sustain itself from somewhere. SO Doug, you went to petitionsonline, but ended up with ipetition? EDIT: Eric, with all due respect: yes...

    or anywhere else but also buy DVDs from Canada. I signed, I'm from Luxembourg so I doubt Alliance really cares. But they can't ignore the consumers from overseas, surely they make a fair bit of money from us as well.

    Why do some DVDs replace film element subtitles?

    I 100% agree with you there. I can also list Hulk UKR2 as a disc where location caps being substituted with player generated stanard font mess with the film. I do however see a difference between subs for foreign spoken parts and location caps. I often switch off any subs for foreign...

    Why do some DVDs replace film element subtitles?

    John, I have to say that I like the UKR2 of LOTR for this simple fact. You can switch off the subs for elvish spoken parts, so you have no sunbs whatsoever. After a few viewings you know what they say anyways and so not having any subs makes those scenes more "pure". But that's just me. I...

    Keep Commercials off DVD! Sign linked Petition in Post #76

    Colton, besides not having the right equipment. I refuse to having to remaster all DVD I buy just because the people who get paid for that can't do their job properly. Of course if you backup your DVDs in order to keep the original safe and sound, then that little extra work won't matter, but...

    Why do some DVDs replace film element subtitles?

    cheers Jay. very good point. I always thought it was to avoid the "double subtitling" when DVDs are distributed in nonenglish speaking regions. for spanish viewers it must be annoying when watching a film in english with spanish subs that parts spoken in french for example have burntin...

    the UKR2 is anamorphic, don't know about the R1 (but I'd trust Robert). Kain, I can only recommend the film. and for that price its a bargain John, her use of the word bollocks isn't the only awesonme thing about her. ;) BTW David. dvdcompare (...

    Meet the Fockers

    Shane, the european branches of studios have been doing that for years, the EU R2 of RONIN has a whooping 5 DD5.1 + one 2.0 commentary on it. I never understood why dubs should get 5.1 :rolleyes:(different topic) esp when they can cause problems on the compression side. But cost is an issue...
