1. Red Desert - hands down the reason to go multi-region.

2. Army of Darkness (will have a review for it in about 24 hours). Terrific improvement over the SDVD.

3. I see people have recommended Black Narcissus and The Seventh Seal. I would add SALO but am unsure about your preferences.

4. Cache is a knockout of a disc (region-free). It was amongst my top picks on this site a few years go.

5. Takeshi Kitano fan? Look up Zatoichi.

6. This is England - One of best UK films to come out in a long time.

7. Breaking and Entering - Probably my favorite Minghella film after The English Patient.

8. ZULU

etc.

I'd love to see Red Desert and maybe Salo on blu-ray, but can't quite see buying yet another blu-ray player at this point just so I can watch a handful of region B titles.
But as long as I'm dreaming, what are the options out there for players that can handle region B, and how much do they cost?

The LG BH200 player seems impossible to get now. Any stores still sell it?

Couldn't see spending more than $200, but really the main issue is space. I already have a blu-ray player, an oppo and a HD-DVD player piled up in the living room and in the bedroom, and don't really cherish the idea of adding one more piece of equipment to those already overly bulky set-ups...

I would recommend waiting a bit longer then.
