Default UK blu-ray buyers and Import buyers

What titles on Blu-Ray has anyone imported that aren't available here in the U.S.? After this whole Paramount thing I got to wondering about that. Apparently you can get Face/Off from Japan and so forth? What else is there thats not region locked? And how do you buy stuff from foreign websites?

So far what I've brought in has been

The Rock
Hostel
Crimson Tide
Air Force One
The Island

I'm based out of Canada, and so far customers are very pleased with these titles. I've only watched The Island and The Rock so far, and they were great.

Im in the UK, but have a US PS3 because i knew movies would come out first in the US more often than not.

But anyways, I've ordered Face/Off on Blu-ray from here, seeing as it's distributed by Buena Vista here - undoubtedly the same master as the Japanese version seeing as both are BVHE.

Starship Troopers has just come out aswell - region free.

Just watched that aswell as Con Air - Starship Troopers was good, but with Con Air you'd be hard pressed to find the differrence between the Blu-Ray & the original DVD.

So Alpha Dog is region free then? Because it says region 2 on the online stores?

Can you please post a like to this? I was going to order it from Japan but it is almost $50.00. If I can get it cheaper in the UK I would be thrilled.
