    Just out of curiosity did somebody already write a review of this boxset (preferable in English since my French and Spanish are basic at best?

    Does anyone know if French subtitles are forced on these discs, as is the case with many French releases of English-language films? In other words, can the subtitles be turned off?

    Answering my own question - I managed to find an on-line review of this set, and the screenshots of the menus indicate that the films can be viewed with or without subtitles.

    I plan on ordering this set within the next couple of months, which should guarantee a R1 release by the end of the year!
