Free at last

So, I've finally got a good region free DVD player. The player before my last was kind of clunky overall and especially clunky when it played non-region one DVDs, which it would only play straight through on the default settings for language, etc. without pausing. This did lead to a fascinating opportunity to watch Dellamorte Dellamore in Italian without subtitles.

The next player I had was bought after that one stopped working entirely and I was broke and it was ok at best and didn't play off region at all.

Now, this one is great. I'm very happy.

So far, I've watched -

I, the Jury with Armand Assante, which I liked even less than I remember from years gone by, and it's not like I remember being terribly excited about it then either.

Beatrice Cenci by Lucio Fulci is a movie I'd like to write more about soon. It's a fascinating movie and it's interesting to ponder what Fulci might have done in a world in which this movie had succeeded.

I've also begun watching the Honey West with Anne Francis, which is, of course, terrific and may inspire more writing soon...

The issue I have with my player is that with it being so easy to play any DVD, it loses something. I want it to do something like pretend it's exerting itself to unlock these secrets from around the globe. At least the first few times.

My Bush DVD player is region free and it's a godsend, allowing me to import regions 1 and 3 to add to my region 2 discs. It seems any DVD player made in China will be multi-region and the Bush plays anything I throw at it.
