    I just got my Pulp Fiction CE r1 DVD from Play and I am pretty ****ed of because it is the Canadian r1 DVD and has French writing all over the cover and the spine! I have also ordered R1 SE - 10th Anniversary Edition from Play, I hope that one doesn’t have French writing all over it (does anyone know).

    I have also ordered some r1 DVDs from www.dvdconcept.com. Has anyone bought DVDs from them before, does anyone know whether they sell US r1 or Canadian r1 DVDs.

    And does anyone know any UK sites sell US r1 DVDs.

    Thanks

    have not used them but www.movietyme.com

    but you find that you will pay alot more for usa version, the only diference is the cover, you don't spend time lookingat the cover, but i must say that i was p***ed when it I first started to get them a couple months back

    from pete18

    i found this on the web,

    PLEASE READ IF U R BUYING ANY CANADIAN SITE!!!!

    As of March 1st 2002, to comply with Canadian law, studios must release some of their DVDs with a French cover.
    To comply, they have released different products than those available in the United States.
    As it stands, the types of covers that are available from major studios are:
    Method 1: 2 distinct products, one with an English cover and one with a French cover. In this case, we mark the french cover version with a (v.f) suffix. All other methods have no (v.f) suffix as there is only one product.
    Method 2: 1 product with a reversible bilingual cover (one side predominently French and one side predominently English, but both sides bilingual)
    Method 3: 1 product with a non reversible bilingual cover (predominently English but bilingual)
    Method 4: 1 product with a reversible cover (one side completely French and one side completely English expect for a small tag stating that the reverse cover is in French)
    The major studios have adopted the following methods as of March 1st 2002:

    Columbia, Warner, Seville, Fox and Disney use method 1
    Universal use method 2 (back to the future)
    Paramount use method 3
    Fox use option 4

    It says "Some" covers but they obviously deliberately pick the ones I buy.

    I have just received Blade 2 and not only has it got French writing on the cover but also on the little booklet inside.

    Will this takeover of the DVD world by the French never end.

    My copy is actually called Le Blad Deux and has Wesley Snipes dressed in a striped jersey and black beret, riding a bicycle with a string of onions around his neck.:rolleyes:

    On the back there is a picture of the blood pack, you can clearly see them recoiling from a clove of garlic.

    My Blade II copy is from play.com but the only French writing is 1/4 of the back cover, I can live with that I think :)
