    Filmfreakcentral's review
    It appears the reviewer had the Canadian version of the DVD, but is not clear about that. I am not even sure the reviewer is aware of the two R1 versions being released.

    From the end of the review:
    ...and the cover: [​IMG]
    I gather that this is the same Universal US release that Ron reviewed. I haven't found a single Canadian review yet.

    I didn't realize Ron had reviewed the Universal US release. Will have to search for it.

    The Canadian disc isn't done being replicated yet. The studio itself doesn't even have discs 2 and 3 yet. I am told that I should have one within the next week / week and a half

    Mark,

    I hope that you post a review of the TVA version as soon as you can! It must be nice to have connections.

    Wow, when did Digital Eyes start carrying Canadian releases? (or have they always carried them & I never noticed)

    darn, so the canadian is longer than the US DVD.

    argh i dont really want to spend that much on a film like this. I havent seen it, but it doesnt sound like a masterpiece.

    It arrived..

    Some quick notes. The running time indeed is 150 minutes. The packaging is a three disc keepcase. It includes a very nice looking booklet and everything about the set looks very classy. Animated Menus are presented in both English and French. Subtitles are removeable and not burned into the print.

    I'll be spending the better part of my weekend going through this puppy.

    I'll be checking back for Mark's review as well. Right now I am on the fence as far as which version I'll purchase...waiting to see what Mark says about image quality.

    And I know it's been harped on before - but the Universal cover just sucks. Might be the first time I actually make a cover for a DVD -- such a fantastic movie deserves better cover art.

    Looking forward to the review, Mark. I'll definitely be getting the 3-disc set, but I just hope the transfer is up to scratch. 'Tis a great movie, anyhow.

    Quick Update (as I get yelled at to eat dinner) : I also have the Universal disc so I'll be including some comments on how the two compare audio/video wise.

    Back in a bit
