transcoding pal to ntsc is trickier than ntsc to pal.
get yourself a region free player from Europe if needed,lots of goodies in UK dvd market
DESCENT is an excellent action-horror-gore-scare adventure with powerful DTS sound.
i dont get all the ouh ah about getting region 2 dvds. piracy however is criminal (i bought all my dvds!) but frankly, there's too many great dvds worldwide
take HEAT dts reg 2 Japan, many from UK (with higher resolution and often with corrected pitch).
THE DESCENT however will test the projector's contrast and black level capacities. ya need a dark room with measured 2500:1 or more CR...
another great UK horror flick is CREEP. almost continuous, real time feeling. just watched again RED EYE (amazing thriller from Craven with AMAZING sound !!) and this almost real time aspect gives tremendous feeling of that "instantaneity".
