Post Worldwide Blu-ray Release Comparison Thread

This list is dedicated to Comparing BRs from Around the World. I have done my best to compile different versions by different distributors (or sometimes the same distributor) using various sites and myself. This is based on Blacklac's list on AVS but with much of my own comparisons. I will update this list as much as possible. If you see anything that needs correcting or you want to add anything, please do. My purpose for this thread is to inform people of different versions so they can pick which version they think is best.

Key:
ASIA - Asia
AUS - Australia
BR - Brazil
CN - China
DK - Denmark
EU - European Union
FR - France
GER - Germany
HK - Hong Kong
JP - Japan
KOR - S. Korea
NA – North America
NL - Netherlands
NOR - Nordic
PL - Poland
RUS - Russia
SP - Spain
SWD - Sweden
TWN - Taiwan
UK - United Kingdom
US - United States

The way I have region code information set up:
Region (A,B, or C) - the default region for the release. This doesn't mean it is Region ABC or locked, but that I don't have the information yet.
Region (A,B, or C) Locked - means the title is region locked to either A,B, or C, or a combination of 2 (but not Region ABC).
Region ABC - the release can play anywhere (barring any problem such as 1080i/50hz or PAL intro)

Just to update your list, Casino Royale (standard) Japan is also the uncut version with the same features as listed, plus DD 5.1 Japanese audio and subs. Don't know about the CE, but assume the same.

Another resource for comparing international Blu-ray releases is this site:

http://www.dvdcompare.net/index.php

Here for example is the comparison for Casino on various Blu-rays from around the world:

http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparison....php?fid=14803

My only caveat would be to take their recommendation of which version is superior with a grain of salt. Sometimes they get it right and in other cases they are wrong.

UK Hellboy is not MPEG-2, it's AVC just like the US release.

Also, UK release of The Fall is cut by a couple of seconds.

Unless it was changed in latter pressings, Lion's Gate's U.S. BD of The Descent includes both endings (selecting the unrated version gives you the international ending, while selecting the rated version gives you th U.S. ending).

Not sure if mine is avc or mpeg-2, but for some reason if I select 6.1 PCM at the main menu, the movie plays w/ the DD track (and vice-versa).

Edit: Just checked my copy and its the AVC version (did the mpeg-2 version only contain the U.S. ending? Should I keep my copy someplace safe?).
Can you survive.....The Night of The Sharksquatch?!?!?

Like the Sharksquatch on facebook...

The Paramount versions of "Zodiac" and "Watchmen" look superior to the WB versions. Warner's Blu-rays look slightly filtered in comparison.

The following site is a good one to bookmark, as it frequently shows screen captures from various BDs.

The US Palisades Tartan release of Old Boy that comes with the Vengeance Trilogy tin does NOT feature the Korean 7.1 DTS-HD MA track. Even though it incorrectly states it on the packaging itself.Only a lossy DD 5.1 EX Korean 5.1 track.

The Prestige; Japanese is not region free (a), and has a wrong aspect ratio (1.78)
