Default Personal Studio Canal collections

Studio Canal has been the biggest individual studio contributor to HD DVD imports. I personally enjoyed collecting their releases and tried to get an almost complete collection. I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion thread about everyone's Studio Canal collections. So what did you get from Studio Canal (including SC releases through other distributors in various countries)?

I got the following and I think my SC HD DVD collection is as complete as it will get once the last package arrives:

Arizona Dream => Finland
Armée des ombres, L' => France
Basic Instinct => France
Brotherhood of the Wolf (The) => France
Elephant Man (The) => Holland
Fog (The) => France
Graduate (The) => Finland
Grande vadrouille (La) => France (still on the way)
Haine (La) => UK (my first European HD DVD import)
King Kong (1976) => UK
Leaving Las Vegas => Finland
Mulholland Drive => France
Pianist (The) => UK
Prête-moi ta main => France (on the way)
Rambo: First Blood => Finland
Rambo: First Blood Part II => Australia
Rambo III => Australia
Ran => France
Serpico => France
Terminator 2: Judgment Day => France
Three Days of the Condor => France
Total Recall => France

My personal favorites from this collection are L'Armée des ombres, The Brotherhood of the Wolf, The Graduate and Serpico.

Yeah, it turns out that I'll also have all those you listed when my Amazon.fr order arrives with four non-English titles. 'The Bronzes' is listed as a Studio Canal release on Area-HD.de but Universal Music on Amazon.fr.

There's a lot of good titles in that list, most of which I have seen yet, but so far I think Mulholland Drive is one of my favorites.

Les Bronzes is a Studio Canal release as well as it appears in SC's website. I just haven't got that one in my collection and haven't ordered it either. I have some interest in it though, but never took the plunge as I think those movies may be quite difficult to digest without any English language options and the content seems to be something very French

Listen to your wife, go out and get some sunshine, it´s good for you. I have been all day outside in the forest and now is time to sit in a dark room and enjoy my :s. I just finished watching Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. Nice movie, little bit creepy.

TF1 Video - wish they would have released more s as La Mome looks terrific, is 140 minutes long & still has both TrueHD & DTS-HD high res audio.

Good catch with the boxed set - Xploited doesn't have them anymore either.
