    As per thread title, it seems that 20th Century Fox have joined the bandwagon, and DVDs purchased from Canadian retailers will soon be having dual language covers. The Day After Tomorrow is the first example I have found, and I have had confirmation of this from DVD Soon. :(

    i've been getting canadian dvd's for years and they've mostly all had dual language covers.. doesn't bother me really. I prefer the double sided ones but either way, it's not that important to me.

    I know there have been loads of discussions about this, but it's funny, I don't mind Japanese writing on some of my covers. Somehow, that looks kind of cool. It's just the bloody French writing which I don't like! I would say it's probably just me, but I know it isn't. :D

    I'm a bit like you Simon but I dont hate bi lingual covers because of the French, for me it's the fact that there're bi lingual! I'd have no problem ordering DVDs from France, or any country for that matter as they can look quite cool (esp Japanese) but these Canadian bi lingual ones look so cheep and tacky.

    Perhaps I should have rephrased that! :rotfl: I don't dislike bi lingual covers because of 'The French'. My objection is like yours, it's the aesthetics I find displeasing, and the fact that the french writing is there, not by your choice. If you order a DVD from Japan or Korea, you know what to expect. The other thing is, why do some studios use dual language packaging, and others not? Up until now, Warners, Fox, MGM, and a few others had been OK. If Fox are starting the practise, then it may not be long before the others follow suit, which will mean that I won't be ordering from DVD Soon, or DVD Import any more.
