DEFINITIVE List of DVDs only available OUTSIDE the US

This list is comprised of DVD titles only available outside the United States. It was created and is maintained with the help of DVD Talk forum members, Region 4 Winners and Losers, and Regional Spy.

Other helpful, related threads:
- Anamorphic DVDs only available outside R1
- List of non-US DVD e-tailers

All genres are welcome, including television shows, music, documentaries, foreign-language films, and whatever else there is.

This is what we're looking for:

* DVD titles not available -at all- in the United States.

* Films with DVDs in proper aspect ratios in other regions, but not in the US.

* Films with longer cuts or extended versions.


What we're NOT looking for:

* Films with merely more extras or an anamorphic version of something that's not 16x9 enhanced in the United States. Consult codefree's list of anamorphic DVDs only available outside R1.

When adding a title to the list, please be sure to add the region code and country. Any relevant info on the details of the DVD (widescreen, pan & scan, subtitles, extras, etc.) are appreciated if you have them.

I don't remember what those two cost me but even if it was 44 pounds each they were worth it!

You can get them from Australia (region 4) too and most discs there seem to be cheaper.

www.ezydvd.com.au is a good choice for many of us

Well, someone else has done that for Region 4 vs Region 1 DVDs, so you may want to include the following link to MichaelDVD in Australia (an excellent reference site for all things DVD related actually):

It's about the same price there since they only sell the individual discs for about $14 each. Does anyone have a cheaper place to get them?

...plus, of course, there are numerous French DVDs of French movies, Italian DVDs of Italian movies and Spanish DVDs of Spanish movies that include optional English subtitles, and in some cases optional English dubs...

...for instance, from France: http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=3051 and http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=770 - both of which include English dubs and subs...

NOTE: ...if widescreen (from AR 1.66:1 and wider) French DVDs generally feature anamorphic transfers as a matter of course...

...for instance, from Spain:

* El arte de morir (Columbia/Tristar) = anamorphic 1.77:1 / Spanish DD 5.1, Spanish DD 2.0 Surround, English DD 2.0 Surround / Spanish, English, French subtitles

* Los sin nombre (Filmax) = Letterbox 1.85:1 / Spanish DD 5.1, Catalan DD 5.1, English DD 5.1 / Spanish, English subtitles

* Los amantes del círculo polar (Sogepac Video) = Letterbox 2.35:1 / Spanish DD 5.1 / English, French subtitles

* Abre los ojos (Sogepac Video) = Letterbox 1.85:1 / Spanish DD 5.1 / English subtitles

Note 1: only one of the Spanish discs features an anamorphic transfer...

Note 2: the subtitles appear only under the movies themselves; extras are not subtitled...

Note 3: transfers and sound on all four discs are good - having them all anamorphic would have been better...

. . . . . .

Good work, but I'd suggest that perhaps cynthia might care just to put the link in the first post at next edit rather than simply duplicate everything at the pre-existing "Canadian Exclusive DVDs" thread....

How about adding:

Any number of Carry On movies (R2 - UK)
Going Off Big Time (R2 - UK)
Maybe Baby (R2 - UK and R4 - Aus/NZ)
Men Behaving Badly - Last Orders (R2 - UK)

Also
Corrs In Blue (DVD-Audio) should be removed since it is manufactured and available here in the US as a domestic release.

...and from the UK...

http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/detail...=7000000058717

http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/detail...=7000000064159

http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/detail...=7000000056677

...and last, but far from least... a Finnish/Swedish/Norwegian/British co-produced (subtitled) first-rate thriller

http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/detail...=7000000058344

(my take on all of the above: two thumbs and two big toes waaay up!)
