    Bensonsworld.co.uk have the cheapest Battle Royale LE, free shipping, but when one of my packages got lost, they didn't replace. That was the last time I ordered from them, but their prices are significantly cheaper than Blackstar.co.uk
    German 2disc SE of Fifth Element only from Amazon.de, very expensive shipping, I think mine cost $40 total 2 years ago.

    Tom for that German DVD Amazon.de but expect it to go to the Kalium galaxy first, then back through the stargate. I have a Heb de Titanic (Raise The Titanic only disc known to exist) I waited almost 4 months for it.

    For the best version of BR you need to combine the Korean movie disc with with UK packaging and extras

    The BR SE UK disc is screwed totally. It's PAL, but for some reason carries the exact same running time as the NTSC, causing the whole movie to actually run SLOWER than it's supposed to!

    The Korean disc carries the same subs, same cut, is anamorphic and has DTS

    No, that's why you need to buy the UK disc too if you want to make the "ultimate" version
