    Nowt wrong with Seed of Chucky, any film that "kills" Britney Spears can't be all bad. Saw this in November, good fun.

    Seed of Chucky is indeed great fun. Quite clever and for a 'studio' film pretty gory as well. I, myself will hold out for the unrated edition out later in the year.

    What is strange is that we still havent seen a release in the UK (I personally dont care as I saw it in Floroda just before Christmas) and all the post production was done in London.

    and for a ridiculously detailed list, look here:

    PS Region 5 dvd's vary. Mindhunters was only available as Region 5 for a long time, and the entire packaging was written in Russian, but the film was in english. Recently i've got 2 R2/R5 dvd's cheap from cd-wow, and they've both been ok, with english packaging, although Eternal Sunshine OTSM took a lot of bashing on these forums for some mis-spelling on the back of the case.
