    Does anyone know if the Japanese subtitles on this disc are removeable? I am interested in getting it since there will be no PAL speedup and the disc is uncut.

    Jeremy, I have this DVD and my memory says that the subs can be turned off. There are very few Japanese DVDs with permanent subs. I recently moved from Japan to USA and I don't know exactly where this DVD is located. I will try to find. The star travelled to Japan for the opening of this film and the disc has an interview with Japanese media that is on the disc.

    The commentary on this disc was also recorded in Japan so its different than the R1 version.

    There is a Nordic Scanbox R2 release coming up that has both DTS and a nice digipacking. A good alternative to the Japanese edition. It´s uncut, I might add.

    It´s of course anamorphic. The retail price will be around $24.

    Damn. I'm gonna have to pick this up in the morning. This is too good to be touched by filthy teenagers working at the gas station.

    Damn, I want to get this Swedish edition. I tried to navigate that Swedish site, but it doesnt look like they do international shipping. Does anyone know of any other places that sell it?

    Well, I know Axelmusic.com ships internationally, and I do know thay sell this version of boondocks , but for some reason it doesn't show up when you do a search on the english-language site just the danish one...... That might mean they aren't able to sell this particular title to you, but it might be worth contacting them and asking?

    No, the Danish Axelmusic site doesn´t ship to the USA. But the Swedish site does. But the shipping cost for international orders is $14. Which means that the movie will cost you around $35. But if you are still interested I suggested you email them and place your order that way.

    I found out discshop.se ships internationally too. Their flat rate for shipping is 100Kr. This title is 169Kr. According to xe.com, the USD conversion for 269 Kr comes out to $38.87.

    Damn...I really want this title, but almost $40 for it is almost pushing it. I wish I knew there was a potential for a Region 1 release of this SE.

    Even though I have never seen this movie still, the cover art for two different editions is so fantastic.

    If you mean the pics I posted, it´s the same edition. One is the slipcase and the other one the digipack.

    Okay, I do not speak Swedish, but I am able to decipher discshop.se pretty well. I figured out how to put it in my shopping cart and I was about halfway through filling out my address when i got to the country selection screen and there was nothing in there that looked like the US. It doesnt appear that it is an option.

    Axelmusic has it, but they dont ship to the US, and their site that does ship to the US doesnt have it.

    Aaaargh. No one has this disc. Is there anywhere else that anyone knows of that I can order this from?

    No, sorry, I checked myself and it doesn´t look like they ship to the U.S.. Maybe you could email and ask them if it´s possible.
