Godfather Trilogy on Blu-ray - $30 shipped Amazon UK

Amazon UK currently has the Godfather Trilogy (Coppola Restoration) on Blu-ray on sale. Works out to £18.02 (just under US$30) shipped to the U.S.

Price shows up lower in the cart for U.S. buyers because they deduct the VAT (sales tax) built into the price for sales outside the EU.

Price: £17.93

Cart price for U.S. buyers (deducts VAT): £14.94

Postage: £3.08

Total: £18.02

That's a nice price. I just got my BSG set in the mail today and despite the lack of a tracking address, I'm extremely happy with the results. Ponder on this deal, I will.

No original mono for the first two films on the UK set.

I might have jumped at this, but Godfather 1 & 2 are both available as enrollments now at CH, so I ordered them there a few days ago...

Any differences between this and the U.S. release besides the exclusion of the mono tracks?

Amazon's site says the UK version is in PAL format.... the packaging is quite different as well.

As I understand it, PAL/NTSC does not apply to high-def content on Blu-ray. The material is stored on the Blu-ray disc at at 24 frames/sec, and your Blu-ray player converts it to the appropriate format for your TV.

Must have been asleep these past few years and even after reading the last post - does anyone know if the UK versions will play OK in the US?

Thanks!
