By the Gods!

Franco Giacobini and Reg Park from HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLRD (1961)

This is a screengrab from the recent German Blu-ray disc seen at Amazon.de. It's nice. Of course, some of the resolution was lost with the screengrab. The previous release was already pretty sharp. I already have a copy of this from a source and it's great. The problem with most of these Blu-ray releases is that they can't be played in Blu-ray players here in North America. Digital releases is certainly the way of the future.

European DVD and Blu-ray discs can indeed be played on "hacked" players freely available on the Internet. I have such a region code free player for DVDs and Blu-rays.

DVD REGION KILLER is a free download for Windows that enables DVDs from other regions to be played. However, it cannot deal with the much more sophisticated encryption of Blue-ray discs.

Finally, a computer running VLC on top of Linux can play European DVDs (but not Blu-rays)._
