I had viewed the Criterion extras but most probably would not return to them.

There are times I keep multiple editions but selling this one let me not feel too guilty about the double-dip .. especially since I had just splurged via dvdgo.com on the Spanish 10-disc Blu ray edition of the Jeremy Brett Complete Sherlock Holmes .. which my Oppo confirms is multi-region! A guilty pleasure ......

There's no guilt in loving the best Sherlock Holmes adaptation ever.  I found those BD releases to be a bit spotty in the PQ department, though still quite a step up from the remastered DVD set from a few years back.  Though they forgot to add the day-for-night filter on the boat chase scene in Sign of Four.  Apart from that, though, great to have the series in 1080p.

 

As for M, I kept my Criterion release for the extras, but the Universum release is definitely the disc I pop in when I want to watch the film itself.

Definitely not region free.  But what a great design!  That's for real, right?  I'll have to pop mine in again just to enjoy that.

Lol - my mistake - the GERMAN Blu-ray was what was being discussed, not the UK Masters of Cinema release - d'oh! I imported the wrong one. Make no mistake that the UK Blu-ray is region B.

Right.  They both are.  

 

I think!!   Almost having doubts now, but I'm pretty sure that's what I changed the player over for the other day!

To the best of my knowledge, Eureka's Masters of Cinema releases are always Region B locked.

 

Germany's Universum release, however, is indeed Region-free.  Even the DVD that houses the extras is Region 0.

MoC only locks when requested by the licensor, they try to release Open Region any time they can

The licensors must request it for every damn MoC release I'm interested in, then.  haha  Just my luck.
