Of Wanted Lists and Foreign Imports

Posted Wed Oct 29, 2008 at 10:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

Our own Ken Brown has been keeping busy with a series of articles on the state of Blu-ray. He's just posted a couple of stories relating to issues all too familiar to home theater enthusiasts: Wanted Lists and Import Titles.

Long time High-Def Digest readers are more than familiar with discussions along the lines of "When will 'such-and-such title' finally be out on Blu-ray?!!" Only to get a response that goes something like, "It's out in France, you can import it." In his latest piece for Sound & Vision, Ken explores both these subjects, first with his list of the 'The Ten Most Wanted Blu-ray Flicks,' and then with his examination of that most troubling example of failing to keep up with the home video Joneses: 'Five Reasons Foreign Home Video Kicks U.S. Butt.'
