    When I was in London last weekend, I was able to find a few Blu Ray movies I couldn't find in the US (Top Gear Polar Special and a couple live concerts, can't wait to get home and watch them!). Now I'm in Berlin and I'm curious to see if there's anything available in shops here that neither HMV or US stores don't have. Is there an equivalent to HMV Berlin, that might have a huge selection of Blu Rays? Thanks

    I was under the impression that some BluRay's still had region codes, so you may want to be careful as they might not play on your BluRay at home.

    As for the store, I don't have a clue. But Berlin is great, good bratwurst and beer. :)

    What have you seen in Berlin so far / what are you planning on seeing?

    Britain and Germany are in the same region (Region 2) so it won't make a difference that way. Just be careful to check that it comes with an English audio track (or subtitles if you're going for a German language film).

    EDIT: Ah - just noticed that the OP is American.:eek: I think Region 1 is the states, so just make sure you get one of those. In English!:p

    Yeah, the ones I bought in the UK don't have region codes, I checked. Blu Ray has region coding, but a lot of films, even big Hollywood ones, don't use it.

    Probably, but converted to USD, they seemed pretty much inline with what I'd expect to pay in a brick-and-mortar store in the states. Online is always cheaper, but wasn't really an option, since I would've had to had ordered them from Amazon UK and have them shipped back to the US which is expensive.
