The region 2 (Japan) and region 3 (Hong Kong/Chinese) dvd's are both uncut. Therefore both the above links point to the uncut version of the film.
Cool, then I buy the Hong Kong one RC3

Since I've already Pre-ordered the R1 and I really want the R2 version, I guess I'm going to end up getting both... I'll probably sell the american one once I get the japanese one.

It's well worth getting the Region 2 version, it has the same features as the rest plus it's uncut! But I have uncertainties about the subtitles, it may be that you have to turn them on and off for certain scenes.  :-/

I ordered the premium box from yesasia.com. $200.00. Yes I am a fan. Even if it's not uncut. Which it probably is. I get 24-page all color booklet , Okinawa t-shirt , Hattori Hanzo 1/10 scale model sword , and a very special "Murder Bride Version" Bearbrick .

Definently gonna get the U.S. release this tuesday. I'd like to get the uncut version as well, as long as it plays in my DVD player. I have the imported DVDs of Battle Royal & Hero and they work perfect. Is the uncut DVD of Kill Bill like those? I'm not really sure what regions those are. :)

I can't see myself paying almost 40 bucks for the uncut version.  plus i'd have to buy a mod for my PS2 or a cheap region free DVD player for like 60 bucks.  Maybe someone will start selling Region 0 uncut versions on ebay and i'll pick one up then.  But for now I'm more than happy with buying the Region 1 version for 20 bucks.  I bet the box set will be uncut as well when it comes out.

Beware : The region 3 dvd is not uncut!  HK-Buyers already got pretty much pissed off, just have a look through the asian dvd forums. Since cd-wow is now aware of that fact, they changed their product description.
Go get either the thai dvd or the japanese one (both R2).

I don't want to buy two versions of one movie, cause I think thats stupid.
I've just preordered the american RC1 DVD of KILL BILL: VOL. 1 for a good price and I'm very happy
 Cool, then I buy the Hong Kong one RC3
makes sense  ::)

Really? That's pretty tight arse. I can imagine how pissed the people were who ordered them, considering the theatrical version of the film was uncut over there...

But, there's a thing that makes me a bit nervous. On that link I posted (the Hong Kong DVD of the film) you can find this: "Fight scenes: Black & White and Colour No English Subtitles". What's that? Is the HOBL scene in colour or not? What the hell :D ?!!!!!

I think it means by that is that in the cinema version the scene started off in colour then switched to black and white when it the full on gore came in. So it's obviously been cut like the normal versions have.

www.dvdfromasia.com also confirmed two different versions of the dvd.

As it seems only the jap. dvd will be totally uncut.

Except the Europe region 2 DVD isn't uncut.... but we all knew that didn't we?
So don't go buying an R2 DVD unless it's the Japanese version y'all. Personally, i'm trying to bag me a Ltd. Edtion Japan boxset. Now that they're pretty much sold out they'd be a nice collectors item, and the uncut version of the DVD doesn't hurt either.  ;)

I tried today to find out about the Evil Dead R3 trilogy...surfed heaps of dif sites and got so many fucking differing reports of technical specs i thought fuck this shit.

Haha.  it's funny that you ask Disney to do this.

Anyway, I'm getting the DVD on tuesday (and watching it on tuesday) and then having my Kung Fu/Sake/Sushi (Or, as I like to call it, slice/rice/dice) night on thursday.

I'm also taking a half day of work on friday so I can catch the noon showing of Vol. 2.

i'll be getting the DVD Tuesday after my morning class.

I have to drive to ECU on friday and was thinking about skipping my classes and seeing the first show.  However, I'll probably see it around 2 or so.  That will be the longest 1.5 hour drive of my life!

Hi there,

i had a "tip-off" for tomorrow release of KB DVD at my local HMV store(in Canada): The first eight buyers gets a absolutely-positively ass-kicking Kill Bill Shirt!

I don't know if it's a country-wide offer because the offer was kept really quiet, bu takes no risk, get there in a hurry!
