    As much as possible (limited because of my preference to classic films) I try to support R2 releases. But especially with WB releases because they are so much better in R1 and sold in boxets and most of them also encoded to R2, I end up buying them the other side of the atlantic.

    However, I found out that many films are actually being released in R2 just not in all countries. And as far as I can tell (I only own a couple of them), all in what seem identical releases to the US. This might be of interest to those who only want the odd title. Here's a list based on films available in Spain, Germany, France and Portugal but not available in the UK, all with many different subtitles.

    In Spain only:

    JOHNNY BELINDA
    THE CHAMP
    THE GOOD EARTH

    In Spain, France, Germany and Portugal

    FURY
    BAD DAY AT BAD ROCK
    BLACKBOARD JUNGLE
    CAT IN A HOT TIN ROOF SE (as a two-disc set in Portugal for some reason)

    In France and Germany

    LIBELED LADY
    DINNER AT EIGHT
    LES GIRLS

    In Spain and Germany

    The THIN MAN titles sold separately

    Does anyone know any other titles than can be added to this list? Thanks.

    Available in France only is MOONFLEET with many extras, under the title LES CONTREBANDIERS DE MOONFLEET.

    DIVE BOMBER is available in the UK but not in the USA. I don't know if it's available in any other R2 countries.
