    The disc being reviewed is the R2 Japanese release.

    This can be purchased at CD Japan for only $18.99 plus S&H.

    Damn you, DVDFile!!! I couldn't resist ordering this. That means I'll have the 2-disc Limited Edition Anchor Bay set, the Restored Director's Cut, and now this MGM Theatrical Cut.

    Which brings up an interesting point. Why is it that MGM can always manage to offer quality DVDs of titles like Army of Darkness Director's Cut and the Manhunter Theatrical Version, while Anchor Bay releases countless inferior versions of the same movies?

    It seems that MGM looks at Anchor Bay's screwups and then grabs the foreign rights, knowing the DVD's will be imported to the U.S.

    Another excellent service source is Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.co.jp

    Their page offers sufficient English support with format identical to the USA Amazon.com page. Orders are filled and shipped promptly. Discounts of 10-15% are likely on new releases. This seems to be standard discount in Japan.

    I just ordered a copy of Manhunter from Amazon.

    Actually, it might be that MGM International...who ALREADY owns the rights...simply will not share their materials with Anchor Bay.
