Damn it. Sneaker I hate you so much right now, but you rock too much for me to stay mad. I didn't need to spend anything else.

For $66 the price is right. The sequels have MA tracks. Schwing.
I can't say no to a box set. How much is the shipping usually?

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

Don't hate the messenger...

Shipping is HK$30 to Europe and the US, at least that's what stated in the checkout screen with the trilogy in the cart.

I would have picked this up if it had the re-edited cut of all three films put together like my uber DVD set has. I already have 1 and 2 on BD and I'm not a huge fan of the third film so I'm gonna have to pass on this. Great price though!

As hard as I try. I just can't get into any of the IA films...I want so badly to like them...

As for me, I think I'll be picking up Django Western and Invisible Target from Xploited.

And I'll definitely be waiting for the criterion 400 blows..

Hi All,
This was one of my childhood favorites and some int'l sites (I am in USA), have it on pre-order. However, I've not been able to determine if it will be region free. If anyone finds out, with a definitive source/link to answer that question, please contact me.

Thanks!

The "snapper" is the WB cases in the papper covers with a plastic "snap". They are allright but can fall apart. WB used them for along while before going to normal cases

um, I am under the impression this blu contains two full concerts (Austin Texas and Rio) in which case why would they dub it? There is a trailer of the sd dvd version on amazon.co.uk (which i assume the blu will contains the same material).

Some of the specs for The Neverending Story are :

Widescreen 1080P VC-1
DTS-HD Master Audio English
Dolby Digital English
Dutch subtitles (Optional)

Can't realy say for sure that the Master Audio track is 5.1 but I think the dolby one will be.
Will post more when I get the disc.

Reason I had asked was that I found it on another site for pre order and it stated that "english language or subs are not guaranteed". Thought I'd check but I agree they wouldn't dub the Stones. I already have the 4 DVD Box set but thought the Blu Ray would be cool to own. Thanks again!!

Is this the version of T2 that was released in Germany? Or just the barebones one?

Has anyone imported the Japanese BD of Sukiyaki Django Western. Im mainly asking because I can get it much cheaper on DVD than on imported BD and if the PQ isnt much higher I wouldnt mind saying 20 or so bones.

They have only released Wolf Creek and Pan's Labyrinth thus far. Wolf Creek was locked but Pans Lab (more recent) was region free. I'd say its a wait and see but wouldnt be surprised if it is was region free.
