    Hi

    I have been looking at a few reviews for some films that i want and some of them suggest getting an R2 Japanese Version of the film.

    I have a couple of question re this advise

    1. Would the soundtrack be in english or will it be dubbed and/or have subtitles

    2. Has anyone bought Disk from Japan or Japanese R2 before, and if so where is the best place to get them

    Thanks

    Steve

    Which discs you after?

    www.amazon.co.jp
    www.hmv.co.jp [English language]
    www.cdjapan.co.jp [English language]

    No problems buying from Japan. Just be aware of the Customs limits. There's a few USA and European based stores that sell Japanese products but they charge a lot of money. And of course (as you've guessed) make sure you are 100% sure of what it is you're buying.

    Normally English language* by default, often with a dubbed Jap as an alternative; rare for subtitles to be forced.

    * assuming that was the film's original language
