    Just wanted to ask a few questions:

    1) are dvd's from mexico NTSC?

    2) is there a good place to buy them from in Mexico (online)?

    3) is there a good website to look at for descriptions?

    Was looking to pick up the R4 Mexican version of The Game. Apparently it's anamorphic.

    I have in my hands Troy Region 4 from Mexico. 2 discs, anamorphic widescreen, english /portuguese 5.1. Bought it at Costco Yesterday for 17 dollars approx. The best places to shop is to actually take a trip over there. I've mentioned before that I'm, 15 miles from the border and the places to go to get DVD's are:

    Costco
    Sam's Club
    Comercial Mexicana
    Sanborn's
    Blockbuster
    Dax (in Baja California)

    Online you can try:

    www.Esmas.com
    www.Palaciodehierro.com.mx
    www.mixup.com
    www.sanborns.com.mx

    Or send me an email and I'll se if I can find it around town (mexicali) [email protected]

    Any other online sites Gabrela? Only two of those links had The Game and it was the R1 import.

    After looking though stores, rentals, and even official catalogs at blockbuster and sanborns, I could not find THE GAME DVD anywhere. It should have been distributed by Universal, but nowhere to be found. I am suspicious it even exists in R4 Mexico. I know there is a listing of international dvd's available in anamorphic at another site. These I possess and can confirm they are widescreen and anamorphic Mexico region 4 dvd's.

    Commando (1:85:1 2.0 English)
    Young Frankenstein (1:85:1 2.0 English)
    True Lies (2:35:1 English 5.1, great transfer by the way)
    Flash Gordon (2:35:1 English 5.1)
    Home alone 1,2,3,4 (1:85:1 English 2.0 ea)

    Other mentions:

    Conan the Barbarian is anamorphic widescreen and dolby digital 5.1. Target with Matt Dillon and Gene Hackman is available, but is is fullscreen and English Mono 1.0. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is available in a 1 disc dts and 2 disc DTS special Edition, regions 1&4. I, Robot and Day after tomorrow are also available in 2 discs, both are region 1&4, but DD 5.1 only. Terminator 3, Hulk, and Independence Day are available with DTS track. U571 has a 2 disc SE with DTS track. The Passion of the Christ also has DTS track, but it is not indicated in the dvd case.

    Anyone know anything about custom charges that might be added to orders shipping directly from Mexico to the US? I'm considering placing at order at Sanborn or mixup.com and heard that there may be additional charges...
