    As I understand it, Alliance-Atlantis distributes New Line's catalog in Canada in keepcases as opposed to the USA snappers from New Line. There are a few titles that I would like to purchase and since I'd rather have a keepcase than a snapper, I would like to purchase the Alliance-Atlantis version. Does anyone know if these DVDs come in a keepcase in Canada?

    Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery
    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
    Seven
    Boogie Nights
    Blade
    Rush Hour
    The Long Kiss Goodnight
    Magnolia

    All of those you mentioned come in a keepcase, except for Boogie Nights and Magnolia. I believe the Seven SE was very recently released as a keepcase, but I'm not exactly sure.

    Also, while many of these are in keepcases, they are also bilingual french/english covers, so take that into consideration.

    Hi Mark-

    I have nothing of significance to add to the discussion. Just wanted to say hello to a fellow Jacksonville native...

    I beg to differ.
    The Austin powers movies are snappers
    Blade is a keepcase with reversable cover
    Seven is a keep case
    Rush Hour is a snapper (rush hour 2 is a keepcase)
    Check out www.futureshop.ca they usually list the package type.

    My Se7en SE is not a keepcase, but one of those fold-out cardboard & plastic things that come in a cardboard slip-cover (same for the SE Boogie Nights & Magnolia).
    Blade was initially released in Canada as a snapper, but has since been re-released as a keepcase. Some retailers may still be carrying the older snapper version.
    The Austin Powers films were initially released as snappers and I have yet to see a keepcase version of either of these films (although they may exist).

    Thanks for the good feedback. This certainly makes my purchases easier. I just wish Alliance-Atlantis released the Warner catalog too. Hello Jimmy!

    Ditto to what Herb said -- the Austin Powers discs were recently rereleased under snapper cases. Despite the bilingualness, they look nice.

    Again, for Seven, I'm not exactly sure what is going on with that one, but it was also released recently with an additional french track.

    Rush Hour (or Heure Limite to you French) is now in a keepcase.
