    Hi
    Can anyone tell me if Artisan's "Jacob's Ladder" is anamorphic or not? Some say it is, some say it isn't.
    Also, does it have English subtitles?
    Is this the only edition of the film? Are there plans/rumors for a future release?
    Thanks.
    Regards, António

    Thanks for the answer Steve, but i have to ask:
    Did you bought the dvd? The reason for asking is that i've read several reviews that state that there are indeed English subtitles and others that just indicate Spanish subtitles.
    Could it be that some of those reviews indicate that there are only Spanish subtitles according to what's written on the dvd back cover, when in reality there are English and Spanish subtitles?
    This subtitle issue is important for me. I would appreciate if someone who owns the dvd (not claiming you don't, Steve), could tell me if in reality there are English subtitles.
    Thanks Steve and everyone else.
    Regards, António

    Hi there,
    I own the R1 dvd of "Jacob's ladder",and indeed there aren't english subtitles on the disc.
    However,i would like to very highly recommend this disc:
    You get a 16:9 widescreen transfer(1.85:1 oar)
    Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtarck
    Feature Length audio commentary by the director.
    Deleted scenes with optional commentary by the director(quite long and interesting scenes)
    A Featurette and production notes.
    Strange,but some of these features are not listed on the packaging.
    It's a great disc and if you like this great movie you should get it.

    Antonio,
    Yes I own the dvd.
    There are English closed captions when I enable CC on my RPTV.

    JACOB'S LADDER was one of the first titles I bought when I first jumped into the DVD fray, three years ago last week. I believe it was my third disc, right after VERTIGO and AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY (it was free with the player, honest!).
    JACOB'S LADDER is still a great disc, three years (and over 200 titles) later. I haven't watched it in quite a while.... it might be high time to throw it on...

    Thought I had already seen this movie, was quite surprised when I rented and watched it this weekend with my girlfriend. Neither of us had seen it and we loved it!. Was wondering if SE was in the works before purchasing with deleted scenes intact? [​IMG]
