You Brits are getting a good deal on the Universal classics, ones that have (so far) not been announced as included in the big 100th anniversary bash. These include: THE LOST WEEKEND & DOUBLE INDEMNITY on top of the already released (and gorgeous) SILENT RUNNING and TOUCH OF EVIL. All are Masters of Cinema releases, who are the Criterion of the U.K. A couple are in steel book form. LIFEBOAT is also coming from them. I do not know if Universal released that one overseas, but Fox released it domestically. A ton of great stuff, anyhow. These and scores of other great films not available here yet make the owning of a region-free Blu player absolutely essential.

Ah, but we're getting completely ignored by Paramount for their Centenary, so it's swings and roundabouts.

Do Not Be Afraid. That sound is simply my mind boggling.

Yes, I realize there are many releases in Region 1 that you haven't access to yet, so I suppose it balances out. I just wish they'd dump this region bullshit once and for all.
