    I doubt there'll be any difference in A/V quality since the first disc has the exact same content as the US release (ie. a DTS, DD5.1, and 2.0 track). In the case of Brotherhood of the Wolf, the Canadian version had an additional DTS track therefore leaving less space for the video transfer which then suffered.

    The extras for the Canadian one are all put on a second disc whereas the US release has it on side B of the flipper...though there does seem to be more extras for the Canadian one.

    Of course, I'm just guessing here.

    That's good to hear, I will probably be buying the 3 disc canadian DVD then.. Looks like the cover isn't bilingual either.

    How much shipping time does ordering from Canada normally add? I've never done it before, so any other differences I should know about from ordering from American-based sites?

    If these are the covers for the Canadian 3-Disc release, that'll be great. The U.S. version is horrible, with a third of the cover taken up by the oscar banner. And it also has the heads being to big as well. The canadian cover, likethe poster art, is very effective and subtle.

    Can anyone confirm that there is an English track on this version? My usual Canadian source, DVDsoon, seems to indicate a French language track only.

    The CNL site indicates English, but also has the following disclaimer:

    The Lions Gate DVD will definitely contain an English track. In fact, I'm pretty sure that it will contain both DTS 5.1 and DD 5.1 English tracks. (I don't remember where I read this, but I'm almost certain.)

    Chris there will most definitely be an English language track on the Canadian version, in fact more than one. I mean the movie is in English and 76% plus of Canada's population speaks English as their mother tongue. It will be in English for sure have no doubt about that, lol.
