What non Region 1 titles come out (or are already out) earlier in other regions? Is there a site with release dates?

The one that comes to mind is Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Of course it was already out on DVD / Video even before it was in the theatres in the US.

O Brother, Where Art Thou and Memento are both out on R2 now, though the latter is priced for rental unfortunately.

Unforunately, it's not 16:9 enhanced and only has a Dolby 2.0 soundtrack.

Letterbox version 2.20:1 aspect ratio, English 2.0, original trailer! Disappointing I know, but I had been waiting for it for 2 years.
Also released this week in Holland the Collector's Edition of 2001, for around 40$. This will not be out R1 until june.
