I cant see them not enforcing region coding either. Not only are the non-region 1 discs inferior most of the time,but at the moment,i can buy two R1 titles (sometimes three) for the same money as one R2 disc. They must make a fortune in profit on region 2 dvd's.The markup will most likely be...
We'll also need a standard DVD player too,for the mountains of multi region discs we own that wont play in either/both HD players.So the argument that the new formats will play SD-DVD's is wasted on people like me. If i cant play my existing discs,theres absolutely no reason to bother upgrading.
Agreed,very worrying. The only online site i could find that stated anything regarding aspect, was The Lasers Edge,who list it as anamorphic widescreen ,and full screen. Hopefully its both,not full screen only.
So has anyone heard anything about some sort of interim "Director's Cut" showing up soon?
I thought someone posted that the original version DVD had gone OOP in region 2 recently,so it had got my hopes up that we were going to get something.
Has it in fact gone OOP,or am i just dreaming?
yeah i was looking forward to it too,but now my collection of mostly non-region 2 standard DVD's probably wont play on any new format player. From the sound of it though,it looks like internet connection isnt needed,its just an option to enable us to get "extra" content,like games etc?
Ok thanks Aaron, what is the current situation in the US, regarding region free standard DVD players? Are they illegal as such? Over here,most players sold are region free,mine was direct from the manufacturer,it just isnt an issue at all.
Has anyone seen anything at all that mentions region free use with these new formats/security systems? The ability to play discs from other regions is top of my list of concerns with any new format,after years of having the choice of buying the films i want,that maybe arent available in...
Me too. Risky Business is one of the films that i refuse to buy until they re-do the current DVD release (some others include Black Rain,Falling Down and Blade Runner-which seems to have gone OOP anyway now).
One of the Point Break trailers has scenes where Keanu Reeves fires a gun out of a truck window ,(that is being driven by Patrick Swayze i believe),that didnt make the theatrical cut. Be good to know when in the plot this occurred and why these scenes werent included on any new version of this DVD.
At the time of release,Waterworld was being panned for the massive (at the time) production costs. There was also some kind of Costner-flaming mentality at the time also,so no matter what the film had been like,it would have been slated. They may have been picking up on the falling out between...
