    Ages ago someone posted a link to a site that compares the different versions of films on DVD according to the different regions.
    Could someone please let me know what it was again as I lost the link when my last computer decided it was time for it to self destruct.
    Thanks
    Christine

    Thanks Garry,
    I just checked both, and bookmarked them!
    Looks like Benny and Joon should be a region 1 buy!!!
    Cheers

    Just checked out both sites listed, but it seems that they only think England as R2, is there a site that looks at R2 as more then just England, one that lists when movies are cut for GB but are the same as R1 in the rest of Europe? For any brits reading this, when a film is cut for the GB market but is left uncut for the rest of Europe can shops sell the German or French DVD of that film?, I see here in Berlin DVD's from England that have not been given a German release or the German DVD left out the original soundtrack all the time.

    I would believe that under European laws there should be no problem in trading in European DVDs. On the other hand I'd guess that some nations do not have the same pornography laws as we do so that's a bit dodgy. I've not seen shops selling German/French products though.
