Hmmmm.... I think I WILL order the UK version when it comes out, since I have a multistandard/region DVD player and also the PAL version has better resolution :)

That is a great idea. I will need to get a region free DVD player. Thanks, dirtbiker.

ethan, make sure to also get a "converting" DVD player  - i.e. converts PAL to NTSC unless you have a monitor/TV that takes both PAL & NTSC signals.  My projector takes both, so it preserves the better quality of PAL signals  ;D

Also, bear in mind that the PAL version will be slightly shorter. But, don't worry, it hasn't been cut, it's just been speeded up slightly to convert 24fps to 25fps.

I really like the Canadian Cover..

it'd only be better if it said

"BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR" .. actually it says it as a quote on the back of the Canadian DVD. :P

I really prefer this one :



This is what my cover looks like! My copy does NOT have the silver around it or say anything about the academy on the front - it's a full picture of the poster with "Four-Star Focus Features Collection" banner across the top and a little "Widescreen" down in the right-hand corner.  I talk about it in the thread "DVD Widescreen Edition - Is mine the same as everyone elses?"  It doesn't say anything about awards on the front or on the back.  If anyone is interested in this cover, I'm not sure if there were a lot made or not, but I know that I got mine at Zia Records in Tucson, Arizona.  www.ziarecords.com  If anyone wants to search for it!  It's a great cover! But cover aside, the movie kicks ASS!!!  And both of our boys have their pics on the side  ;)

This is interesting. Are there different covers available in the US? Miine has the silver around it.

There are different covers in the USA, I guess; mine has the same front as the Lost_Girl's but a different back, with 4 little one inch square photos, 2 of the boys with their wives and one each of Ennis and Jack.  I guess it's a film about two friends and their families!

 ;D ;)  Nah, but yeah I get your point and I don't understand why they are promoting the movie like that...  They should put a picture of Jake & Heath together as lovers and not as lovingly brothers!

Yay!  I received my 2 WS DVD's from Wolfe with the bandanas today.  The cover on them doesn't have the silly silver frame!!!  I'm one happy camper  ;D

The UK cover is better. And at least it boasts its BAFTA best film win.

Sorry, I could only find a small pic of it...

I love the UK cover!!!

The UK Cover is the Best so far!!  The US one sucks ditch water.  I've been experimenting on creating one to cover the US covers in my two versions.

I am disappointed with the cover. I do understand the movie poster part but 3 academy awards on top really underscore BBM's accomplishment.

Maywe we will design our own DVD cover and just make it available for the members and replace the one from Focus Features.

yeah your all right.  the US version does look like it would go in the Bargain bin at walmart heh.  But last week, i was at the wherehouse music store and i saw a different cover! its covers the entire front with no silver edges around it.  I don't know if the back was different though.  i'll check next time.  Here it is (for those who don't know already)

anybody know if the US only has 2 differnet covers? or are they're more out there

I'm actually ok with the silver-bordered U.S. cover.
On March 21, chameau said "Anything showing pics of our boys will make it for me." I agree. Plus, I honestly don't even see the border and the text - my eyes go straight to the boys and that's all I see.
Riobbm23, stephen, bram and some felt it looked too platonic I guess. For me, it's actually a little reminiscent of the embrace in the flashback scene so it feels romantic to me when I look at it.
