    Hi,

    As topic really... want to order unrated Land of the Dead and don't fancy one with French writing on, and as I speak Play are a quid cheaper than Movietyme (yeah, yeah, I know, I'm tight!!!).

    Thanks in advance,

    Matthew

    No. Different distributors do it in different ways, but you'll find that on most of them you have French and English on one side.

    Lion -= their returns address is in Belgium. Discs are sourced in Canada.

    Many Canadian covers are bilingual on both sides - one side is primarily English with French secondary (smaller lettering), and the other side Vice Versa. Some are 50/50 on one side only. I don't think there are any Canadian covers that are 100% English on one side or at all - I believe it's illegal in Canada.

    That's why I now use Movietyme for R1 as every R1 I bought from Play was Canadian, and my Monsters Inc 2 disc R1 was different to the USA R1 years ago.
