I got mine - YIPPEE!! This is better than Xmas!! Morrisons had no fancy display either, but the most important thing is i have one, and i love it, and i can watch it over and over until i am a total emotional wreck.

April 24 - the best day of 2006 for UK  ;D

Aimi, am so glad that you have got yours!  I expect you will be watching right now!  Be prepared, you will be hit hard.  I was. 

You are right this being a special day for all of us UK fans.  But what about 29 April?  That's sounds like that day will be pretty good too (o/t, but Aimi and I are meeting up for a BBM day!).  ;D  ;D
Tomorrow Christie - i have whole house to myself, plenty of tissues (perhaps some whisky is called for?). I am expecting that hit by a truck feeling again - and in all honesty i can't wait!!

Oh yes, Aimi, a whole house to yourself is a perfect way to enjoy the most beautiful love story ever told (your words chick!!).  Enjoy it.  It's the best way to have your heart crushed that I can think of!

YIPEEE!!!!!!!!  My UK DVD came in the mail today ;)  Strange, however, that the listed running time is 129 minutes and not 134.  Even with the PAL/NTSC standards difference in encoding the DVD, I don't think it would amount to a 15 minute difference... ???  ANyone know if the UK version is edited down?  I'll have to watch it this weekend and see

PAL DVDs run 4% faster than the original movie - it's only 5 minutes shorter. But it's 5 minutes faster, so it's not cut. Just faster...

I tried the movie out today.  Not only is it a little faster (The pitch of the voice is noticeably higher), but I think the fact that our AC runs on 60Hz as opposed to the European 50Hz makes it speed up even more!  I do like the liner inside the case that the US version doesn't include, and also the scene selections have a cool "flying papers" clip depicting the different scenes.  The main menu doesn't come up properly however - has anyone noticed this?  I got a kick out of the "descriptive" audio track.

My main menu works fine, but the special features menu takes ages to work properly ??? I watched the Logo special last night and when it finished, it didn't go back to the menu - just to a black screen. Not a huge issue, really, but I've never had that happen to me on any other DVD.

Descriptive audio on the UK DVD...
« Reply #106 on: Aug 25, 2010, 03:14 PM »
[Moderators, feel free to consider whether this post is worth of posting at all; I think it should be kept, at least, within the member zone]

The UK DVD has a special feature that I haven't heard before: a descriptive audio track.



Nothing is the same anymore... #) especially FNIT and SNIT.. #s}

Warning: contains adult sounds.

Download a sample of FNIT here, fnit.mp3 (1.7 MB; sorry for the large file size & 'silent' quality).

Please, do consider before listening: do not spoil your illusion, memory, recollection... :s)

 ;D ;D ;D  :t) There is a funny quality listening to passion dictated in an English accent.  ::) "...lubricate...and pushes down..." indeed. It was almost like technical manual.  :8 :8 :8 The last bit of silence is appropriate because even the English is at a lost for word to describe that ultimate moment of passion and bliss.  :t) Again rdx. You the Man.  (:*

Yes,it's already working without any problem now,thanks ¡ Well,I don't want to be disrespectful with our English fellows ~) ; but this scene listened in this accent is as if Ennis and Jack were displaying their respects to each other before playing a cricket game ¡  ;D

Thanks LC! Yup, the accent is half the fun.. ;) The poor 'narrator' guy also recites almost half of the credits by the end of the film... (^)

No disrespect intended. I assure you. I love watching the UK soaps (Coronation Street, East Enders, Emmerdale, Hollyoak) for the very reason that I love the accent, and also because they have the best writers with the most interesting storylines and character development. All these shows have great stories of gay characters.  <^(

The particular narrator for Brokeback Mountain was just funny. "...displaying their respects to each other..." Is that like "...show me yours and I will show you mine..."  :P But no pressing down please.  :^^) :c)

Compare to the Blu-ray scene selection here: they're different.

Did they release this in North America or elsewhere?
