Bill - perhaps you could edit each of the titles to be hyperlinks to a review of said title.

For instance, instead of saying "The Patriot", you could instead list "The Patriot". This would give people a better understanding of Superbits, and whether a certain title is worth the 'upgrade'.

I understand that people could just look up the reviews themselves, but doesn't this list's function so that we don't have to look them up in the first place?

Thing is, DVDS from Italy would be in Italian

like this one for the 6th Day. I am sure you could use the Altavista translator.:

http://www.afdigitale.it/edisport/af...256c8a00521c40

..and Japanese DVDS would be in Japanese...and finding reviews of these titles is not easy. As far as Superbits from Region 1..reviews here on the site should be easily found. As far as region 2 & 4 (UK & Australia), try looking here.

Superbits are Columbia Tristar right? Why is Jurassic Park on the foreign list, that is a Universal title. Distributed by CT overseas?

Thanks...I figured..if others see what we are missing...enough complaining might get us some decent superbits.

my first reaction to these titles was: why? (of course the retort will be: why not?) I assume the Les Mis film is the one with Liam Neeson - correct?

digitalbits did not specify if it was the Liam Neeson one or not.

As far as the Cirque..I have the regualr version and it is perfect. I did think when I watched it, DTS would be perfect for it. Riverdance would be great in DTS as well if you like that kind of thing.

Bill Gieger - a suggestion.

You should put something like "(2disc Superbit Deluxe)" after titles like Charlie's Angels, Hollow Man, etc.

You should put something like "(No regular version available)" after Panic Room, Adaptation, etc.

And, in the "other countries" section, you should put something like "(US rights not held by Sony)" after titles like Jurassic Park, Fast and Furious, etc.

Until you spell my name right none of that is gonna happen. It probably won't happen anyway. Secondly... no need to get detailed. It had been explained that some titles are not Sony owned. And if anyone knows anything about Superbits, they know if they are Deluxe or not.

I don't feel the need to insult the intelligence of those who DO know their fair share about DVDS and the like.

All this is, is a list of Superbits avilable throughout the world... nothing more nothing less.

Romero,

I did a search on a few sites and came up empty. I even looked in Sweden but no luck.

Hey Bill,

Where'd you find information on the Spiderman Superbit in Japan? I searched and finally found something mentioned briefly on the HMV site but beyond that nothing.

Thanks
