Australia International Movies Thread + Bargains (Chat Welcome)

This thread will focus mainly on movies that aren't available in Australia or have never had a BD release yet. Focusing also on catalogue titles, CRAZY deals and special editions that some might miss unless reading the way I do. Some of this thread will be biased choices by myself so unless other members contribute then you might not get everything available without this or searching yourself.

*Blu-rays that are only available from specific countries. I will also include releases if they are already released elsewhere but have better AV or 3D releases that are only available in that country *See notes below for more details*. If anybody else wants to add to the list please post in the thread

GERMANY

[Show spoiler]


Lake Mungo is a must have for horror fans

Kaboom is a fantastic movie, though might be hard to watch for homophobic people

The Hunted (very underrated movie)

Battle for Terra (only way to get 3D)

Mothman Prophecies (Great mystery/suspense/horror movie)

Cargo (Only way to get it in 3D)

Howard the Duck is only 2.0 but I don't think it needs more. (Its a great 80s movie)

Charlies Angels: Full Throttle is also available from amazon.es but it is always more expensive

Erik the Viking is hilarious and very entertaining

Europa Report (Only way to get it in 3D)

Made of Steel is only Dolby 2.0

Fragile: this release is apparently 1080i. There is another version available from amazon.es (apparently with 1080p) but it has DD 2.0

Kreator is a heavy metal band (if you like metal, you will definitely like it)

Tartarus (English subs)

A Simple Plan *The movie with the bird on the front* (Great movie)

Brassed Off is available in UK but is lossy audio

M. Same as Criterion but better packaging!


ITALY

[Show spoiler]

Equilibrium (Lossless Audio and great picture)


FRANCE

[Show spoiler][/BD]

The Jacket is also available from Japan.

Ghost Dog is also available in a 3 pack from the same country

Halloween H20 is a superior release and Halloween 6 is on par with the

Vampires is the John Carpenter one.

The Fearless Vampire Killers (good Roman Polanski movie) (Le bal des vampires)

Saw movies (Best uncut releases and all in a pack)

13th Warrior has a German release but has inferior packaging

Grudge 2 is only available in France. The pack is a good way to get all 3 together but is pricey. You can get movie 1 and 3 elsewhere


SPAIN

[Show spoiler]

The Cure is a very good movie


BEST RELEASES OF HALLOWEEN

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _____________________

I would like to say that I understand there are already threads (outside of the Australian board) that lists existing and up and coming Blu-rays. For people like me, I have to literally visit every countries threads and view multiple websites/forums on a daily basis in order to get all of the info about what is already out or coming soon to Blu-ray worldwide. Quite frankly it is really annoying, so I thought I would start this thread to allow people to link and share any (new or old) news they thought was interesting or relevant to the nature of this topic.

I know a lot of movies that aren't specifically related to "Australian releases" are still mentioned often throughout The Aussie/Kiwi Last Blu-ray You Bought/Watched Thread but nowhere near or even close of a percentage to cover everything. However, if you have little time, forget or simply can't manage to read through multiple pages, then like me you would have never found out about International Blu-ray releases unless luckily catching a random post in the Australian board, or an email from somewhere.

If we band together I feel like we could keep each other stay up to date with crucial information. There is no need to make the process complicated, there are already many of us that read a lot of sites and forums, so all of our input is very simple to share and can only benefit the members and help encourage some teamwork What do you guys think?

Cool, so it looks like we have a tough crowd here tonight. I will kick it off with this. WTF it's going to America but not Australia. I would have missed this if I didn't read it elsewhere!

For those of you that have missed my recent posts in the last watched thread

(ALSO HAS A UK RELEASE) Hot Shots 1 and 2 and Erik the Viking are compatible with Australian players



We are also waiting on Cevolution to present himself with some more - Yes some of us post this stuff in that thread but doing it in here as well or even if you see someone else do it in that thread. Not everybody reads every page of The last watched thread. At least doing it in here will be easier to follow as it is specifically dedicated for these things!

Long history of this, stretching back to VHA. This one, for instance:

US, or UK. No Aussie release (yet).

I saw a write-up of this release on a US site (lost track of it just now, but if I find it I'll post a link) that gave a synopsis describing the movie as being about Kirk Douglas' prospector character, and didn't even mention Tom Burlinson's or Sigrid Thornton's characters at all! Somewhat missing the point, methinks ...

It's a great movie. I am going to pick this title up as the DVD is quite a weak transfer

Ahh, that Rocketeer steel is gorgeous. Really reminds me of the game Rocket Ranger I used to play on my old Amiga before it died.

Damn you, Zavvi! I don't *want* to start double-dipping!!

I love this movie. It's one of my favourite Van Damme movies and it got a 2 German re-releases a while back, a cut and uncut version (aka Black Edition) but it's impossible to find for less than $45 including postage. So every now and then I look around for a good price but can never find one.
