    I was in Flenburg the other day, and noticed that Karstadt
    had low prices on DVD's (15-20 euro).

    I wanted to buy some, but didn't because I don't want DVD's with dubbed content (film and/or extra material).

    Can anyone recommend some German DVD's that are not dubbed?

    what exactly do you mean by not dubbed german DVDs?
    I guess you want the original soundtrack (mostly english) on the DVD. In that case you only have to check the distributor/Studio. If it is warner Columbia,Fox,Universal, Paramount and other big Companies then there will always be the original english(or whatever) soundtrack on it. If you see smaaler unknown(at least outside Germany) labels like BMG, Kinowelt, Concorde and so on then you have to be more careful. They usually have the original sountrack on the disc too but either with forced german subs and/or in stereo only while the german track gets 5.1 DD and DTS (which I think is absolutely stupid). Extras are for big studios in the original language sometimes with german subs(removable and nonremovable) For the smaller studios extras still remain original with german subs. I guess it would be too expensive to translate the extras.
    I think it's really strange how cheap german DVDs are ( you can pick up the german edition of LOTR for 23.99€) But the quality and extras are not as good as ebglish or french R2s.
