    So, thanks to the great folks at Kino, now available in Region A or Region 1 whichever you prefer to call it.

    To be pedantic, it's Zone A. It's Regions for DVD and Zones for Blu-ray discs.

    You are in the majority on this issue and I'm very much in the minority, possibly a minority of one! It is worth remembering that the areas covered by Regions are not exactly the same as Zones.

    I was joking! TBH, I think most people like myself use the term "Region" because it's just easier to remember than Zone.

    While we are in the zone here, what I am hoping is that Robert Harris does "A few words about..." the new Kino release when he has a chance.

    I watched my MOC Blu-ray of this in its entirety as I have the Kino BD Release on pre-order. This is a really good western, but I always have to be in the right frame of mind to watch it from beginning to end.

    Well, I watched it again today, but with the Kino Blu-ray. It's a very bleak film, but it's really a great western.

    Did you find the Kino or MOC a better presentation? I have the MOC and have not picked up the Kino.

    Wrong. It's "region" for both BD and DVD. A simple search will verify this but go straight to the source: the website of the Blu-ray Disc Association. Dozens of times throughout, it refers to "regions" with not one instance of "zone" in this context. This goes right back to their original white paper outlining the specs of the BD format (March 2005).

    When Blu-ray discs were first introduced, the various areas were designated as "zones" to emphasize the difference between Blu-ray discs and DVDs. If the industry has now changed its terminology, then so be it. it's something I haven't paid attention to because it's unimportant to me.
