Other region Blu-ray recommendations based on my likes?

so many of you know my tastes. like everything: horror, big budget, sci-fi, fantasy, indie, musical, and on and on. or you can just scan my collection.

Since i became free of region encoding with my new Blu-ray player, i want to know what are some of the good Blu-ray's out there, that can be easily had on Amazon, has good pic and aud and has good extras and can't and probably won't be seen in the states? i want to make use of that puppy with some good stuff not here...

thanks y'all...

Thief from Arrow UK.

There are extras here that you can't get in the U.S. Including a new interview with James Caan. I have this set and it's solid.

Re: Other region Blu-ray recommendations based on my likes?

i'll tell you, wish this particular forum wasn't so dead. there are so many good ones out there, that i am slowly discovering on my own, which is damn hard! finding some gems that i love and extras that are superior to anything here. love that i went region free at relative ease...

just found these that i am so excited for...



the 2016 feature length doc on this one i can't fucking wait for!

That's region B. Are you region free?

and looks like the extras are the same as the old special edition DVD.

I am and only have US release with barely an extra, don’t even have DVD. This sounds like best overall copy. I wouldn't want to watch a DVD anyway. This has best of all worlds but most likely much better pic and audio...

I actually have The Wailing digitally. My favs with always be my new UK editions of OldBoy (obviously), In Bruges, and The Cooler. Such good looking sets. And the movies and what extras they have are so good.
