    We really need an International list of things people want for comparison reasons, like Freddy vs Jason DTs etc, however a list of Koren films new and old are welcome.

    Jeepers Creepers 2 and Freddy vs Jason please as i would like to know if theyre censored or not.

    I understand Independence Day will be out in May in a special DTS version in Korea as well as Japan, nowhere in the world has this film with a DTS soundtrack so id love to see it reviewed if it ever arrives, if you do review the korean edition of Cliffhanger is it possible you can compare the halfbitrate DTS track with the Japanese fullbitrate track and note any differences (( i know this is very hard to do ))

    Also i would love the following reviewed from region 2 and 3 land.

    Jeepers Creepers DTS version
    Aliens DTS Japan
    Alien 3 DTS Japan
    Face/Off Region 3 version (( heard the picture quality is terrible but the sound is outstanding perhaps you can review it ))
    Final Fantasy region 2 DTS Japan version
    We Were Soldiers - Scandinavian DTS version
    Mad Max - Region 4 DTS version
    In The Line Of Fire Superbit Japan
    In The Mouth Of Madness DTS Japan (( if someone can lend you a copy to review as its out of print ))
    Kill Bill Volume 1 - Thai version (( compare against the Japan version please ))
    The Crow - Region 3 korean version (( is it uncut ? ))
    Silence Of The Lambs - Korean DTS edition (( far as i'm aware this is the only country to stock the film in a DTS format but is it uncut ? ))

    Basically i would love to see more comparison reviews with other countries and notes on any differences between each version as regards picture quality, cuts, sound etc, as i imagine a lot of people now use the internet and shop for the best version possible.

    Bearing in mind the Korean censorship laws, which would appear to be slightly stricter on extreme violence and frontal nudity than anywhere else, would it be possible to state whether a Region 3 is cut or uncut in the review?

    Also, to add to the list: The Last Samurai? At CD-Wow on R3.

    Also, just found this at Korean DVDs:

    Hannibal 2 Disc Uncut - 170 minutes running time. Apparently has 35 minutes of extra scenes!

    Sympathy for Mr Vengeance
    Memories of Murder
    ... ing
    Spy Girl
    Failan
    Conduct Zero: No Manners
    Christmas in August
    Harmonium in my Memory
    Happy End
    My Wife is a Gangster - parts 1 & 2
    Natural City
    Wonderful Days
    Love Letter - Jap film but K release is cheapest and best
    Take Care of my Cat
    The Uninvited
    My Beautiful Girl, Mari
    Wanee & Junah
    The Untold Scandal



    There are quite a few more - but you may want to have a quick glance HERE for more ideas :D

    Sorry to but in guys, but please don't bother reviewing "We Were Soldiers" HK edition, as it is not worth spending time actually going through the whole film :( . I say this because my wife and I were recently in Hong Kong and I saw a copy of this for a very very cheap price, so I snapped it up.Now I can hear what you're all saying, he must have bought on a maket stall or another street vendor.Not the case at all, I bought it in HMV, and I did check with the distibutors after I got back that I had a genuine copy.The sound and picture quality on this are so bad , that it needs to be seen and heard to be believed.The picture and sound drops out very often, I would say at least 3 times every minute.The picture is very grainy , colours are washed out etc etc etc.
    This must be THE worst transfer in history , it looks as though it was taken from a well used VHS copy.
    Sorry for the rant, but I hoped like others this would be rather good.

    FoxyMulder the scandinavian releases have the subtitles forced, which is why I thought the HK R2 would be ok, but the distributer is Universal Laser & Video Co. which seem to have a reputation on the forums for really bad transfers.
    So now I am on the hunt for a Dutch release to see if the print is any better.
