    If you're an American and have a DVD and/or a Blu-Ray player that's reigon-free, which films and/or TV shows you imported from R2, R3, or R4?

    My Blu Ray player is Region A, so I only purchase Blu Rays that are all region (for the time being).

    I have hundreds of R2 discs from Japan--movies, anime, TV shows, J-pop concerts--and hundreds of R3 discs from Hong Kong, some of which are recent HK movies, but most are older ones from Celestial Pictures' mass release of remastered Shaw Bros. titles (1958-85) which lasted from 2002 to about 2007.

    R3/Shaw Bros. classics:

    Some titles have since been released in R1 but they weren't when I bought them. Some are pressed while their U.S. counterparts are MOD. Some are anamorphic whereas their U.S. counterparts are not.

    If I'm ever your house guest, Mr. T, I'll be very low maintenance. Just park me in front of the TV and let me pick from that pile for the next few days and I'll be happy. ;)

    Vic, with over 4,000 titles to choose from you won't be bored.

    Alas, some of the transfers are less than stellar. For example, The Black Knight (the Alan Ladd film) from Spain is in anamorphic 16x9 but it's a wretched transfer. Barely watchable but at least it's out there. Yet some are superior to their R1 counterparts. I Could Go On Singing (the Judy Garland film) from England looks much better than its R1 release and unlike the R1 is anamorphic 16x9!
