Agreed. Argent aren't even releasing any BDs, so why intervene? Bit like the shambles that was Vampire Circus. The US gets a region-locked BD, we get a DVD. Yeah, that makes sense...

I'm still hesitant about going multi for Blu, as it seems a safer bet to ensure my collection is UK-friendly. That way, even if my player breaks down, all I have to do is buy another cheap UK player and I know all my discs will still play. I'm still waiting on multi-region players becoming the norm rather than the exception, then it won't be so much of a gamble. I mean, logically speaking, if I bought a Tosh, made it multi-region, then amassed a large collection of RA locked titles, and then a couple years down the road the Tosh breaks down and they no longer make hackable machines. What then?

I know, I'm a prophet of doom. But I prefer a sure thing to a gamble.

Got Island of Lost Souls steelbook in the post today. Very nice surprise and it looks exceptional. I love ordering from Eureka direct :D

Mine arrived today too and it looks great – now to see what the film looks like an HD compared to the Criterion Collection release.

Also, Planet Axel have shipped The Sting BD.

I'm fortunate in that I have both a multi region standalone blu-ray player (or 2) and an HTPC with an external blu-ray drive connected to my tv so I'm not too worried about being stuck with unwatchable content. But if I didn't have those I'd certainly share your apprehension.

Or... You could just buy 2 Toshiba BDX1200's as they're only 50 each, that way you'll be futureproofed for many years to come.

It is completely crazy, but also completely brilliant you should love it.

Just checked out the blue-ray of 36th chamber of shaolin.

Attachment 65907

A slightly blurry look (very minimal) otherwise the best looking old school kung-fu movie I have ever seen. Brilliant colors and lots of detail, pi$$ cheap on axel as well!
