    Or it's been decided for them? Perhaps, they got reminded about the limitations of their licensing agreement which is why they're locking their releases now. Another possibility is that not all titles are under the same licensing agreement as to which region they can be released to.

    I don't have any firm idea why Olive seems to have changed from entirely Zone Free to entirely Zone A locked. I do know that it's not exclusive to Olive. The "revised" BRD of Patton from Fox is Zone A locked but the Wild River BRD from Fox is Zone Free.

    Yep, I was hoping the new Patton would be region free like all Fox catalogue releases in the last few years, maybe it was the extras. Oh well, they can release it in Europe, or I'll find something else to spend my money on.

    A bit of good news, I got an email from Amazon UK saying that the Marketplace seller could not fulfill the order & they've refunded me.

    I am disappointed if Olive have started to region-lock their releases because those I have so far appear to be region-free. I may have to invest in a multi-region player. The only Blu-ray title that I want which will not play on my player is the Criterion release of Bigger Than Life. I have the German Blu-ray release of Against All Flags - it is excellent.

    Just read the review from Mr Harris, it sounds like its the best its ever been but far less than it could have been, i wonder if this is a case of Olive not having access to the technology required to align the 3 strip Technicolor or if they have access to it they are too inexperienced to do it right, i wonder why they couldn't get the contrast right either, as for cardboard sleeves, they do no harm and in my opinion i always feel that i am getting something of value when i buy a release with a cardboard sleeve, i like them. I'm disappointed when i read the review by Mr Harris, i think my standards are high and i wanted them to hit a home run with this release.
