~(Original Post) About The Constant Gardener: This blu-ray release has zero extras. It says it has features on the back of the box, however it's a mistake; no extras to be found.~

Here is some more information on some of these Canadian Releases. Most of them are just packaging errors:

1) Sin City

- Back of the cover says English DTS. It is actually English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio

2) Stephen King's The Myst

- The only difference between the Canadian Version and the American Version is the cover art.

3) Hostage

- Video is said to be in 1080i. This is a misprint. It is actually presented in 1080p
- Canadian Version is presented in a 1.78 aspect Ratio, while the U.K. release has the video in its OAR of 2.40.

4) The Constant Gardener

- Back of the case displays that it has a bunch of extras, while it doesn't

5) The Butterfly Effect

- The movie is the Director's Cut, NOT the Theatrical Cut

I watched Cold Mountain last night.
It has an english 5.1 DTS HD-MA track (and also 5.1 English and French dolby tracks; no subtitles).
Video is 1080P MPEG4 with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1
No special features

This was an alright release all around. The movie was pretty good , video was pretty decent most of the time, and audio was nicely done. I'd recommend this release.

Nice thread, Gizmo! I've been getting confused with the two or three threads floating around about this subject.

I received my copy of "15 Minutes" in the mail today.
It has an english 5.1 DTS HD-MA track (and also 5.1 English and French dolby tracks; no subtitles).
On the back of the box it says that it's 1080i, but my guess would be that it's actually 1080p due to the studio's previous releases (I cannot confirm this though). It's also MPEG4 and has an aspect ratio of 2.35:1
There are no special features.

I enjoyed the movie. A LITTLE on the absurd side, but I still thought it was enjoyable all around. It was a little strange to see Kelsey Grammer outside of his Frasier role, but I still enjoyed his performance in this movie.
Video quality was pretty good; some scenes looked a little dull though.
Audio was pretty good too.

I'd recommend this release.

You know what I just noticed about your list GizmoDVD? You don't have White Noise or White Noise 2 listed on it.
