Default I'm a noob when it comes to imports...

So I just recently got into movie collecting ever since I got my HD DVD player. There are several movies I want to import, but I was wondering if any of the HD DVDs released over seas are edited differently than they are in America? Or is it the same exact thing? Thanks in advance.

- edit And to specifically answer your question, yes the movie should be exactly the same as the American release (if you are buying movies that originated in America)

The only one that's different that I've noticed is Resident Evil Apocalypse, but it's marked on the box, and is (in my opinion) a far better cut of the movie (though not so much better that it'll make you like it if you didn't before.)

Not if you use Babelfish

But I think starting the movie should be rather easy. There should be something like "Film starten" or "Start Film". The language menue should be called "Sprache/Untertitel" or something like this.

Its not too difficult. I figured out how to change the audio to english in like a minute.

I only watched it once, but the first time I stitched to English audio, during the movie, and it didn't change, but the subs came up like it should have been English. (Subs are automatic, have to turn them off). So I restarted the movie and immediately changed the audio and it worked.

So possibly, you may have to change the audio/language setting before the movie starts up. Could have just been a glitch though.
