so, i'd never read all the hateful things on here, but now that i have, i'd like to rub in all of your faces that it IS october and there is NO wild at heart dvd in region 1. so i bought the japanese one from region 2 (which, in actuality, plays in all my players, not just my multi region), b/c that one is ntsc and i wouldn't have to deal with the 25 fps speedup. unfortunately, the one from japan is taken directly from that pal transfer, therefore, everybody moves and talks like a chipmunk, and now i am fucked until whenever they decide to release here in the states. turns out, i think my player compensates for PAL speedup and i should've just gone with the one from england and it would've been better than this one i've got here. the things i get myself into. at least since it's no region i'll be able to sell it on ebay once i find out the REAL release date of the us release.
