I'm asking for my little brother. He wants a movie that will be coming out soon in Japan. He has been looking at the Oppo DVD players, but he would rather not spend that much. Any suggestions?

I'm feeling kind of Blu....

Check http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers.

There're a lot of cheap region-free-capable players there.

Just get the Philips DVP5982 for $55-70 at your local BestBuy or through Amazon.com
Region-free hack:

Power Up the unit with NO Disc in the tray.
Open the tray
Press the SETUP Button on the remote control
Navigate to the PREFERENCES page using the Right Arrow Key
Press the DOWN ARROW one time to select
Press the 1 button on your remote control
Press the 3 button on your remote control
Press the 8 button on your remote control
Press the 9 button on your remote control
Press the 3 button on your remote control
Press the 1 button on your remote control
The current Region Code Setting will display
Use the UP/DOWN Arrow Keys to select the region required or '0' for All Regions
Press the PLAY Button on the remote control
