Because Blu-ray isn't region free. You can import any HD DVD anywhere in the world and it will work on your player, the same can't be said for Blu-ray.

most of the blu-ray import are region free as well. I'm not a fanbooy or anything but i do think that import blu-ray movies need to be review, and also let us know if they are region free or not.

True statement. The more legitimate information this site can give us the better.

Reviews of import BD's would be great. I've been wanting to buy The Exorcism of Emily Rose on import. Does anybody have this BD or seen a review of it? Thanks!

Especially the Japan imports which are Region A just like North America.

It's also a myth that HD DVD doesn't have region coding. China is blocked out with HD DVD, and they are developing an entirely different spec for the China region. It's called C-HD DVD. It's more than region coding, it has different codecs even.

FYI, Japanese porn pixellates out any visible genitals. Kind of defeats the purpose.

This sounds more like a 'Feedback' thread, but it just might stay here as long as the discussion is on importing information.

Also, to clear the air, this site does not import high definition titles for review. Rather, the imported titles are loaned to this site for review by other forum members, meaning that Peter and Ken are borrowing those reviewed imports and returned to the forum member after the review has been posted. In other words, if you have a Blu-ray import you would like reviewed for this site, you can offer to loan it by PM-ing jed or Peter -- of course, as long as the title is region A, reviews of Blu-ray imports are very likely.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day.
