    I recently bought three DVDs over eBay and received fakes so promised myself I wouldn't buy anymore. Anyway, on Monday I bought another... stupid eh. Unsurprisingly I've got doubts about it too. It's a Region 1 version of Wild Wild West. The case is the cardboard variety so I'm pretty sure it is kosher, however the disk is gold underneath which makes me suspicious. Are all legit DVDs silver underneath and are all copies gold/green?

    The other thing that is odd is that the CD, which is printed, has 'WIDESCREEN 17175 REGION 1 106 MINS. US PG-13 CANADA PG/DP NO COPYING. SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAWS.' Yet there is no French anywhere on the case or CD.

    The second query isn't such an issue, but is it possible to tell whether or not I have a copy based on the colour of the... er... base? Thanks. :)

    A gold DVD `is a dual layer disc. Don't worry about it - seems pretty legit to me...

    If I recall correctly, the dual language covers only apply to films released after 2002, so WWW, doesn't qualify. Crap film though. :devil:

    some early DVD's were gold underneath (quite a dark gold) i've got a copy of Gattaca that is that colour. i bought it just after my first DVD player in the months of DVD's launch in the UK.

    sounds cool to me, except maybe the fact that you bought Wild Wild West :laugh:

    Oi don't knock my taste in movies!

    Mind you, I guess you do have a point. ;)

    Yeah I figure this one is kosher. It's just I'm so supsicious now of eBay - this really is the last time I buy DVDs that aren't brand new!

    Cheers for the help guys.

    Yeah she's fine eh, especially in Desperado!

    I know I'm digging myself deeper here but I bought WWW on the back of the western theme in Shanghai Noon - which is incidentally my favourite film.

    BTW there's no abuse that you can give me about the above statement that my mates haven't already said. In fact one of them introduces me as: 'Here's Pete, his favourite film is Shanghai Noon...' :D
