[access-uk] Re: AD on DVD

Hi David,

You would think that if a movie has Ad in the cinema then it would when
released on dvd however as you've discovered this is not automatically the
case.  I'm sure there are reasons for this in terms of different
distributors etc for the dvd and the movie but well it's just another case
of us getting so near and yet so far what we really want..  Our solution has
been to subscribe to www.lovefilm.com as you can list the titles they have
by whether they have ad or not but I know that's simply a workaround.

What's even more annoying is that as far as I'm aware although the likes of
The matrix trilogy and Lord of the Rings were released on ad video when they
came out on DVD there was no ad - again I'm sure there's a reason but it's
darned frustrating to say the least.

Hey ho, not much we can do about it at present I guess.

 Cheers,

Phil

Subject: [access-uk] AD on DVD

Can anyone tell me whether some dvd titles are released both with and
without AD, i.e. two separate versions?  I ask because a friend of mine saw
the film "atonement" at the cinema and it had an AD track.  knowing the film
was now out in dvd, today I trotted down to my local Tesco and purchased it.
Sadly, it does not appear to have an AD track.  I can watch the film in
italian, hear the Director droning on for hours about each individual camera
shot, but no audio description.  I rather assumed that if a film had AD in
the cinema it would have AD on the dvd, or are there AD and non-AD versions
of the dvd?

This is all turning out to be rather more complicated than I anticipated.
