    I'm interested in purchasing these Region 2 French DVDs for their English DTS soundtracks: Dark City & The Skulls. Can anyone who owns these tell me if when listening to the English DTS soundtrack if the French subtitles are removeable?

    I have the french version of Dark City and I can tell you
    that there are no forced subtitles on the disc.
    Most French dvd's don't have forced subtitles on them, only
    the older ones.

    ...the Roger Ebert (I know, I know, he's "America's pre-eminent movie critic" and a television 'star' of sorts) commentary is not on the French DVD (in France - as in the rest of Europe and, dare I say it, the world! - Mr Ebert - pace his great fame in the USA - is completely unknown)...
    However, the French disc does include "Commentaire audio du réal, scén, dir. photo et dir. artistique (VOST)" (French-subtitled audio commentary by the director, the DOP, and the production designer).
