What are some notable UK Blu-Rays that are Region Free?

Getting ready to pre-order Highlander and I decided to throw Once in the cart too. What are some other titles I should consider while I'm the spending mood, that'll play on my American PS3.

Ashes of Time Redux
Black Narcissus
Cache
Funny Games
(2007)
Great Expectations
Mad Detective
Tokyo Sonata
Zulu
Ipcress File
(Though it has none of the extras from the DVD)

Plus quite a few BFI titles.

'Once' will not play in an American PS3. The disc is encoded in 1080i50 format, which the PS3 doesn't support.

Will a typical late-model laptop be able to display 1080i/50?

Your info is incorrect. The disc plays fine in Region-A PS3s.

I stand corrected. I must have been thinking of another disc.

Almost Famous and The Goonies are two great discs that are region free.
