The "canadian" problem that was mentioned in another review (missing booklet and mislabeled dics) was related to the MAPLE edition released only in retail stores in Canada and it seems that Amazon.ca are selling the american edition instead. So you need not worry with that.
As for the missing titles and credits, these are intended. Just take a look in the last pages of the 48-pages booklet and you'll see that Copolla directly address and explains his reason behind this "creative" decision.
So, everybody can sit down, relax and enjoy this Masterpiece!
Another big problem is that both movies are missing the credit reels at the end of the movie. The movie disc label says 153 minutes and 202 minutes but they end up actually being 147 minutes and 196 minutes. weird...
.... EVERYTHING out on the river is insane. Posts are manned without commanders, officers(Robert Duvall) are more fixated on surfing and Play Boy Playmates than their present battle. During these segments, when we move - almost drift - from scene to scene, we begin to see this Vietnam as something different, something more vague and faintly evil than we could ever had dreamt up. This side of the world has gone mad, as Sheen's character soon begins to see ever more clearly. Even the men accompanying him begin to shift towards the other side of sanity. But don't fret, the way this shift is portrayed is a beautiful thing to witness, as is the irony of their endeavor - that, sent to kill an officer for going crazy, EVERYTHING is also crazy, and the AWOL officer makes perhaps the most sense.
I suppose this film reiterates all we thought we knew about Vietnam, only it happens in a way that both tears and swallows your preconceptions alive, forcing you to dig ever deeper into the madness that surrounded Vietnam.
