I love my new Taxi 2 DTS Region 3 DVD and am extremely interested in seeing the first movie. From what I've read here in the past it appears that the first movie cannot be found with both an anamorphic transfer and English subtitles. If I am mistaken please let me know. If not, has anyone heard of any plans for a release in any region that meets this basic criteria?

...nope, not true: both the regular and the dts taxi discs offer French language tracks only...

Taxi (DVDZone2):

http://www.dvdzone2.com/cgi-bin/en/O...ch&search=1641

Taxi (original release):

http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=1435

Taxi (dtsrelease):

http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=1635

Taxi 2:

http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=2278

...none of the discs have subtitles in any language (not even French!)...

-> -> -> However... the UK DVD of the original Taxi is subtitled ... but does not have a dts soundtrack...

They listed it as 16X9 but no English language or subtitle track.

...well... since the disc is released in the UK by a UK company, it is very unlikely that they would release a French-language-only-with-no-subtitles DVD!...

...anyway, so Benson's made a mistake, but Black Star does mention subs:

...and there you are!...

Taxi 1 - UK Version

Avoid the UK version of Taxi its not anamorphic (despite what it says on the box). Its only got pro-logic sound not dolby digital. The subtitles are burnt onto the film.

Thanks for the word of caution. I had just received an email reply from BlackStar and they said the DVD is 16X9. I'll take your word for it since it sounds like you apparently own this DVD. I don't want another nonanamorphic title in my collection. This is sad though that this movie can't get a nice 16X9 DTS release like in R3.
