    Hi,

    I noticed that cd-wow were selling 'The Boondock Saints' for £4.99, but it only has 2.0 channel sound. After looking at the dvd comparison website it looks like there are 5.1 versions around but they are either in the heavily cut region 1 format or region 2 releases except for the UK one.

    Can anyone tell me a website were I can buy a German r2 copy of this film ?

    Cheers

    www.amazon.de is simple enough if you already have an amazon account at one of their other sites

    Thanks for that, but my German isn't very good. Is there anyway of getting the order screen in English ?

    Amazon.de doesn't appear to stock it.

    In Germany it's called 'Der blutige Pfad Gottes'. You can buy it here (although it's not cheap at c.£19!):

    Apparently the R2 Japan is just as good as the german. Are there any UK sites that import ?

    The Jap version's great for being uncut, NTSC progressive scan and an exclusive commentary but it's only DD2.0. You might well find the Jap version ends up even pricier than the German.

    And this is the reason why the UK R2 and the US & Canadian R1s are so cheap... they're all bad compromises.

    An R1, unrated special edition would be nice.

    A R1 SE is apparently in the pipeline which should be uncut.

    For future reference, you can always use BabelFish to translate a foreign site as you click through it:
