region 3 at cdwow
very tasty with the vouchers an all.....
Cheers for that - just ordered them both
no problemo m8
i ordered the region 1 versions from dvdsoon a few weeks ago - they were around a tenner each.
Cheers, stiil had some vouchers so bagged Last Samurai for £7.99
Have already got Matrix Revolutions (R1)on pre-order from DVDSoon - c/c statement shows it cost £9.78 - shame I'd already ordered it as I could have had that for £7.99 as well
Although not many CDWow vouchers left now so best I use them sparingly!
Just bagged Last Samurai for £8.49 using the old method!
Has anyone seen Last Samurai at the cinema and can let me know if there are any scenes with non-english dialogue which are subtitled? I say this because I just watched the R3 Once upon a time in Mexico and all the non-english dialogue isn't subtitled. Presumably, with it being R3 they are expecting people to be watching it with the Asia subtitles throughout.
There are some scenes that are sub-titled.
Thanks Tejstar - I'll probably pay extra and go for the R1 just to be on the safe side.
Revolutions is about the same price R1 at DVD Soon.
Didn't "mugsy" say that his region 3 version of Once upon a time in mexico didn't have the english transalation appear where they should have appeared in the film ?
If this is the case, surely, however cheaper the R3 version is - simply put that aint good, is it ?
Especially on films that have foreign language spoken in them, like the last samurai
Hopefully that was just a "one off" and this region 3 version will be the same as the region 1 - if anyone knows for certain please post - it would seem to be obvious that the studio should put the English subtitles on automatically with the English soundtrack surely?
my point exaclty - It would be a silly thing to do.
Is mugsy sure the DVD is region 3. I mean apart from the DVD cover showing a R3 on it (which I presume it does) do you know for sure it's a R3 version. I say this because I know the Region zero version does exactly the same.
My region 3 OATIM had no subs automatically on for the spanish bits, and I thought it was strange at the time, now I know why I sold it so quick after watching it.
Oh, and the film was pants too
Yes, it's definately Region 3. I've been informed that Warner Bros (distributors of Last Samurai) use burnt in subs and I can see from the deleted scenes on Once upon a time in Mexico (which contain mexican dialogue) that the subs on this are player generated. I expect it's cheaper and with it being produced/disctributed by Robert Rodriguez it was on a tight budget.
Still not 100% decided but i'll probably risk the R3 Last Samurai
