You can use babelfish to translate the page for you if you can't get through the page. I know that HD Movie Source and XploitedCinema both sell imports also and are located in the U.S.

I would recommend using exploited cinema (haven't checked to see if T2 is available for pre-order, but I'm sure they will carry it when it becomes available). Their prices usually end up being better than directly importing from another country.

It is not too difficult to order from Amazon France:

1. Go to amazon.fr
2. Choose "DVD" from "Rechercher"
3. Type HD DVD into the search text box and hit return

You should get around 60 results, a lot of the titles are in English and those that aren't you can look at the box cover to some degree.

To add an item to your cart, go to the item and click on "Ajouter au panier"

If you have a US account, then you can log in with it an it will remember your address and credit card options, so it is pretty straightforward ordering.

FOr currency conversion, us: http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Actually, I think in general, even with shipping it is slighlty less to order from Amazon.fr and there is more choice. But XPloited.com is certainly slightly easier.

Don't worry, I live in the UK and I've got myself Rambo: First Blood from the Amazon.fr, I've bought most of my films from the US, so I just copied everything I did in the US one into the French one and it worked fine.

I'll have a go at the Japanese Amazon as I might get Equlibrium from them, using Babelfish

Actually the whole page doesn't translate into English which kind of sucks. It's only bits and pieces of it.
