Title Best
Hobo with a Shotgun (Blu-ray)R1

     And here is where it all falls down, and I feel ripped off (again). The Region A version of this disc includes subtitle tracks in both English for the Hearing Impaired and Spanish, and 5.1 channel audio. And then we get into the extras that were left out, such as more of the Grindhouse contest winner trailers. The Region A disc is region-locked, but this is absolutely the last time I am going to simply accept that. In the Region to Region comparison stakes, this disc is a major loser, and the entire Blu-ray Consortium deserves a combat boot in an uncomfortable place for it.

     Unconfirmed (so far) reports have it that a version of this disc is available in the UK that is similarly better than the local product. Being a UK disc, it would have the same Region code. Pending confirmation of the UK disc's specifications (tips concerning reliable reviews of said disc would be much appreciated), it appears that the UK disc may well be the one of choice.
