    Hi All,

    I have heard that there is a region2 special edition of Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil' coming soon.

    Does anyone know anything about this release? What is on it? When is it coming? How will it compare with the Criterion?

    Cheers,

    Lex

    You may have other reasons for waiting for a Region 2, but the Criterion version is Region 0 as are all Criterion disks so you don't need a Region Free player.

    The Criterion is an excellent box set by the way.

    Thanks for the reply Stephen.

    Actually not all criterion discs are region free - I have several which are only region 1.

    I agree about the quality of the Criterion Version of Brazil though - personally I think it is the best DVD out there.

    I was just curious as to what was going to be on the Region 2 version.

    Hi Lex,

    I hadn't realised some Criterions were Region 1, is that the new releases or some of the older ones?

    Yeah, most of them in fact are region 1 - there doesn't seem to be any method behind it: modern ones like Armageddon, Spartacus and The Rock are reg1 as well as older ones like Rebecca or Robocop, Dead Ringers etc.
