The link below may prove to be much more useful than just a Non US BluRay region thread - it's a regularly updated list of all BD titles worldwide with and without region coding
Thanks for the link. It's quite useful.
I hope this doesn't stretch too far outside your original notion of titles of interest. Given the monrning's announcement I thought anything like this needs to be managed in tandem with a region code "clearance."
My interests are provincial (I'm in the US) and self-serving (I have a blu-ray player and want to know about non-US releases I might be interested in purchasing, particularly Japanese, HK, and Korean releases with English subs, and European and Australian discs that are region free and subbed). I guess I could buy a second blu-ray player in region "B", but if I can hold off until the Chinese or whoever, inevitably, crack the region coding bs, all the better. But, you're right, the code issue is crucial, really the reason for starting the thread, and I was planning to include that info in the list above when available.
I'm not sure the new thread title is just right, since I'm not really interested in compiling a list of ALL international releases. ... ... But, you know what, maybe just leave it as it is - "International Blu-ray discs" ... on second thought, that's fine. And I'll just cull stuff for my little Americentric "not-available-in-the-US list" from the discussion.
Ideal, of course, would be a "Forthcoming Arthouse etc Blu-ray release" thread, like the long defunct (though still stickied) "New Forthcoming Foreign/Art/Indie DVD" thread, which treats releases from all regions. Unfortunately though, I don't think I'm the guy to manage such a list because, well, frankly, it sounds like it'd take a lot of time and my qualms about including stuff I thought was garbage would probably cause some tension. [In fact, I personally am not particularly interested in any of the abovementioned titles except Zodiac
, but I figured a list with just a single title would be pretty pathetic!] Still, if anyone wants to take charge of such a thing, I'm not feeling the least bit proprietous.
