    OMG 57 american dollars not including wot the customs will hit me with but i love this film and bought from japan, its supposed to be anamorphic and i hope the subtitles are not burned into the screen and can be removed, its costing a lot of money and i'm crazy but i want it bad .

    Foxy, my experience so far with Japanese discs have been good. no forced subs, extras should also be in english, some with forced subs some with removable. Only the menus are in Japanese text, and most are anamorphic although dont know about cutthroat as it was released about the same time as armageddon which was non anamorphic. CUstoms for one disc will be about £4-13.

    I have to agree with THX 1138, my japanese dvd´s have no forced subs on the feature itself but the extras are sometimes with forced subs.
    Also worth telling that the quality of the disc themself is very high.
    Transfers very good and so on.
    In other notes mate of mine went back to japan and i asked him to buy the following titles:

    Ronin:Ultimate Edition DTS
    Terminator:Ultimate Edition DTS
    Windtalkers 2 disc Special Edition DTS
    Signs Collectors Edition DTS ES Discreet
    and finally i could not resist
    Soldier DTS
    I´ll get these (hopefully all) on Friday:clap:
    I can´t wait:hiya:

    Scroll up ....... i loveeeeee the film and also Cutthroat island was originally released at cinemas in a DTS sound format so i'm dying to get it i understand its full bitrate DTS 1509 kilobytes a sec instead of the usual 384 kilobytes a sec dolby digital american version i have, anyone who has this film knows its very entertaining and sounds amazing so i'm really lookin forward to it.

    Hi Matt

    Could you let me know where you are getting Ronin DTS from, I have tried DDDhouse and a few others but can't find it.


    Cheers

    I got it from cdJapan.. though they now list it as out of print..

    Though I believe amazon and hmv both still have stock.

    Also you can get it from yesasia.com with free shipping and there is a voucher floating about for money off (check out the international section of dvdtalk)

    I am currently waiting on 3 shipments 2 from cdjapan and one from amazon!

    Somehow I have also ended up with 2 Total Recall DTS's as well so I'll be trading one shortly :)

    So have u watched Cutthroat Island yet then ?

    Cheers
