Here is a really good website from Australia, that not only compares extras, audio and picture between Region 4, 1 and 2, but also adds those discs that are available here in Australia and not the U.S.

There is one movie..that wasn't ever released here in Poland..BRASIL...i would love to watch it..but I can't buy it here....Sad
Just curious.  Is HD and BluRay continuing the region coding?
I second Spaced. Multi Region players are awsome, and I've always wanted to see I Come in Peace. My mom wouldn't let me when it first came out, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

Is that really not out in the US? Surprises me. I keep meaning to get it; just need to find it cheap enough.

Nope, I thought for sure it was too, and when I went to buy it I found out that it's never been released on DVD here. Not knowing it has a different title over in the UK didn't help me any when I went to track it down on the internet either.

UK feature packed DVD has been out for years containing both series. No sign of a US release, it's essentially the same humour as Shawn of the Dead but as a TV series.

Yeah, I got Spaced a while back when it was on sale, good show.

Both of these are highly recommended by me, probably lots more:

Dead Man's Shoes
UK DVD has been out for ages, in fact it'll be shown here on Film Four next week which is a free-to-air channel. US DVD release is finally coming in early September I think...

Comparing Availabilty Across Regions
Lately I've been ordering a lot of stuff from region two that isn't available here in region one land, and I thought it might be interesting to see what other films are available in other parts of the world and not where I live.

I just ask that the discussion not degenerate into a comparison of extras across regions too much or fancy packaging--I'm talking about stuff that isn't available at all where you live, but is elsewhere. Here's a few I've gotten from the UK recently, all of which aren't found in region one:

Flash Gordon (1980)(Purchased to replace my OOP R1 disc)
Phantasm II & III (as part of the Phantasm boxset)
I Come In Peace (aka Dark Angel)
The Descent
Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth (Unrated)
