Can you guys help me please? (Questions about R1 availability)

Hey you all,

I am interested in several foreign films but am not sure which are currently out in region 1 format and of those that are, which is the best version to get. I am just gonna list several movies and if you guys have info on any of them just let me know please. A few of them (like The Killer and Hard Boiled) have pretty well known releases but are near impossible to get and was wondering what other region 1 versions might be available. I tried to do this myself but it would take a pretty long time for me to make a list of all these. Once again any help is appreciated. Thanks


Battle Royale
The Big Heat
A Bittersweet Life (Front Page Got me interested)
Bullet In The Head
Dead or Alive
Fulltime Killer
Hard Boiled
Infernal Affairs
The Killer
Naked Weapon
The Nest
Old Boy

All of these are available in Hong Kong as all-region NTSC discs that will work in your American DVD player. The Killer and Bullet in the Head are packaged together in a box set called the "John Woo Collection" (review). With Infernal Affairs, make sure you get the HK copy from Media Asia, not the mainland China release from Zoke Culture.

I believe HKFlix carries all of these.
