hmm, looking over those extras i dont know how different they are to the UK release aside from the extra commentary, i think ill wait till this is released and then read some comparisons of the 2

although i like the UK cover art a hell of a lot more (aside from the stupid alternate title used)

...Im not sure if I should buy this version for the extras, and for the original french language track, or keep my uncut English version....
This is hard....

I will probably pick up the unrated version, since the import DVD I have is of bad quality (image, dubbing).

Although I predicted the ending of the film correctly early on I still loved it. I'll definitely get the unrated version, I can't wait for this.
