My blu ray collection has grown considerably over the last year. Only DVD's I bet are rarities unavailable on blu ray.

If a film is listed as Region B, with Regions A and C untested on Blu-Ray.com, is there really any way to find out if it'll play on a Region A player without just blind-buying it and hoping it works? I'm trying to figure out what version of [REC] 4 I'm going to end up buying. It appears there's 4 releases; UK, France, Germany, and Spain. On top of the region coding, I need to get an edition that has English subtitles as well. The info on Blu-Ray.com is pretty sparse for all editions:
- UK: Audio TBA, Subtitles nothing listed (I'm sure English will be an option on this one), Playback Region B (A & C untested)
- France: Audio TBA, Subtitles None (Listed as such), Playback Region B (A & C untested)
- Spain: Audio Spanish, Subtitles Spanish & English, Playback Region B (A & C untested)
- Germany: Audio Spanish & German, Subtitles None (Listed as such), Playback Region B (A & C untested)
My gut tells me the Spanish edition will be the way to go. For what it's worth, I went with the Spanish edition of [REC] 2 and that was region-free and with English subtitles - of course that doesn't necessarily mean that'll be the case here but it's a good sign. That edition of [REC] 2 is also only listed as Region B playback on Amazon.es, so Amazon isn't even a reliable source for this information it seems.

I cannot answer the question concerning why GNR sites are lacking promotion. That would be a question for their genius manager.... let's leave it at that.

Was going to get The Phantom of the Opera (1925) on Blu Ray than I found out it is only available in a different region. Pisses me off. Like the Hammer films.

Best way to check is trying to find a product page where the region code is listed or a shot of the back cover. Most releases over here get region locked and watch out for forced subtitles with french releases. Always look for reviews or fora threads. If you are someone who wants to get the best version of a movie, I highly recommend getting a region free player. It is liberating.
