That's the only Carpenter film I never expected to see on Blu-ray. It seems I was proven wrong (which is a good thing)!

It's also rumored to be getting a Region A release (along with Platoon) in May.

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

Can anyone confirm that BFI's Blu-Ray "La Valley" aka "The Valley" aka "Obscured By Clouds" is (or isn't) region locked?

It's region-free. There's a thread devoted to BFI Blu-rays here, with region coding info where available.

I haven't found any info on Region Coding yet, but most if not all of my Optimum Blu-Ray's are Region B locked.

Super psyched on this one, I hope I get it to review, but I'll have no problem spending my hard earned cash on it!

Take a look at the last few pages of this thread. While this thread was originally created to focus on foreign-language films released on Blu-ray, it now serves as a source for news on and reviews of Blu-rays released outside of the U.S. Like Mean Streets.

Looks like it was cancelled. I'll try to email the company and find out what's up.

Hmm... seems to me like exactly the kind of thing we might want to give its own, different thread.

Starting with post #16, the OP of this thread began posting US productions released on blu-ray abroad. If you have an issue with the thread title, I suggest you take it up with a forum moderator.

Ok. I'm not blaming anyone and I don't have an "issue"; it just seems to me that the subjects, 'foreign cinema' and 'foreign releases of domestic cinema' would be a prime example of exactly the reason we have more than one thread here. They're quite different things and probably somewhat different audiences/markets, wouldn't you agree? I'm trying to suggest, not complain.

I agree the topics are different. However, starting as far back as early in the first incarnation of this thread it has been used as a catch all for both subjects. Perhaps the thread title could be updated to be more inclusive? Short of that we continue to discuss blu-ray on a website called DVDtalk, and life goes on.

I sent an email to the address listed on Fabulous Films's website here, but it immediately bounced back.
