Home Alone 2 Region Free and shipping

Received today and definately Region Free after playing with np on Region B player...

My first thoughts were that it was a much improved picture quality over Home Alone with certain scenes clearer especially most of the night scenes being particularly crisp and clear...Sometimes there is a presence of film grain which makes the picture natural looking and in some very small amount of scenes the grain can look a little too much as if it were fizzing....But highlights of great picture quality would be in The luxurious Plaza Hotel Reception and Duncan's Toy Store with the Christmas Glitter and colours being vibrant and clear....Was it worth the upgrade....definate yes...it's a keeper for me and certainly I can see an overall improvement over Home Alone ...at times reference quality but with infrequent grain so comes highly recommended.....The 1:85:1 picture ratio fills the widescreen as well...

Regards

copy I received seems to be fine Steve....would it be possible they ran out of stock after fulfilling certain orders?

Why not put out of stock and not pre order?
Looks like amazon and some other sites say not yet released?
I have sent dvdworldusa an email to find out whats the score.
