    I've found this for a bargain price, but it doesnt state if it's region free. Anyone any ideas if it is?

    Cheers

    The US, UK and European releases were all region free so I expect it to be no different.

    That's not the worst bilingual cover I've seen. At least the title hasn't been repeated twice on the spine, which they often do even if it's exactly the same in French as in English.

    CAN$14.99 + about $6 shipping is a bargain for the full fat 3D/BD/DVD combo, and amazon.ca use some sort of DHL express service for postage so it only takes 48 hours door to door. If only amazon.com did the same thing for their 6-dollar shipping charge...

    True it's not as bad as some Canadian titles, personally I'd prefer to pay a extra couple of quid for an all English cover but each to their own.

    I used to be the same, but after buying some Jp Dvd's I've given up on that and get a version I want. Even got the German 'Raid' Steelbook, lol

    It's not the language that bothers me about these Canuck covers - it could be in Swahili for all I care - but rather the ham-fisted way that two languages are shoehorned onto a cover to please the nutters in Quebec.

    So with that in mind I was pleased with the Canadian release of Dredd (only $11) because it's got a reversible cover, English one side and French on t'other, just like DVD back in the day.

    Looks like I've managed to un-cover a bargain, lol.

    Is there anywhere to find the region locked/free BD anywhere so then there is no need to constantly post/nag on here?

    The reason I ask is that on the same site, they have the Spec Ed of Finding Nemo as locked to A/1 but I know my G/F Dad has this and his is a region locked player!

    The US version is region free but according to blu ray.com, the Canadian one is Region A.

    My copy arrived this morning, shipped Wednesday and arrived today. Remarkable. I'm very pleased with it especially considering it's region free, despite the back cover stating otherwise. I checked the 2D/special features disc and the DVD. I'm assuming the 3D is the same.
