None. It would defeat the purpose of me having a region free player!

Add Private Lessons to that.

Most of these haven't been released anywhere on DVD, so region doesn't matter. Many of mine come from the VHS tapes that I own and copied to DVD. Only four are from other regions and are factory made.

Private Lessons (Korea)
Warlords of Atlantis (U.K.)
Water (Spain)
So Dear to My Heart (U.K.)

3 of them have never been on DVD or VHS to my knowledge anywhere.

When the Fish Came Out
Miracles Still Happen
Song of the South (I think was available in Japan on Laser Disc?)

Matter of Life and Death
Battle Royale
Witchfinder General

Though there is something to be said for nodeerforamonth's comment. Still, I would like superior releases of these three than the R2 discs that I own.

Where has Night of the Comet been "officially" released on DVD? I need to get that one.

I never give this kind of thing a second thought. I already own them, so why would I care if they ever get released here? If people don't go region free, it's their loss, not mine.

What region were these released in?

Or are we counting bootlegs you own as well now?

I guess I don't understand the purpose of this thread. Those of you listing titles you own from other regions would buy these titles again if they were released here?

Exactly. As long as I can get a wanted film in some region, I'm happy.

I guess in theory it'd be nice if, say, Spaced and League of Gentlemen got releases and thus more attention in the US. Honestly, though, once I've spent the extra money to order a DVD from another region, I'd be kind of annoyed if it came out in region 1 where I could get it cheaper.

The complete series of League of Gentlemen was released on DVD in America a few months ago. It's just the live show that is R2 only. That and there hasn't been a release date set yet for a R1 release of the movie.

Ah, cool. Well, further evidence that I don't care much once I own the things....
