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

Already posted here, and in that thread they've confirmed these are all Region B titles. As well, there was an error with The Crow. It's not the extended edition, it's the collectors edition.

Close thread, go over to the one above.

For the UK market, EIV supporting Blu-Ray exclusively is a pretty big deal.

They have catalogue titles like Seven and Lord of the Rings.
