Where can I find Region free dvd besides of ebay?

see topic.

Here is a list of the movies I'm interested in...
The Legend Of Zu
Spirited Away

Also where could I find release dates for mexican movies like
El Arte De Morir
and find out what other movies are good besides the ones that come over to the states...

...ahh... El arte de morir is a Spanish film...

...assuming you are equipped to play R2/PAL discs (Mexico = R4/NTSC - I think) I can recommend you check Spanish DVDs of Spanish-language movies, many of which feature optional English subtitles, and a few of which even feature optional English dubs - as does, for instance, this very nice, anamorphic 1.78:1, DD 5.1 DVD of "Arte de morir"...'s another good one:

...and a particular favorite of mine:

...also this very beautiful movie:

...found this review of the (a?) Musa DVD, which is NTSC, but also R3:

...time to consider taking the region-free route, eh wot?! ... ...

There is no legit R0 of the movie yet. There is a wonderful region 3 DVD available though. You can find it at

The Legend Of Zu
You can get a legit R0 of this at

Spirited Away
Again no legit R0 of the movie. The R2 and R3 versions are coming out this month and the R3 is quite affordable. You can get the R3 at

You should probably get a region free player if you don't have one yet.

There's a new Apex player available for really cheap (there's a thread on the first page) and can be made region free... maybe you should consider it. All it takes is one DVD from another region to make it worth it (because more will follow).
