Police Squad is being released on blu-ray in Regions A & B in April:

https://www.amazon.com/Police-Squad-Comp...B084DH8BJF

It's got identical artwork to the old DVD but lets hope the transfer is a new scan.

Are these the Public Service Announcement films they used to show us in school? I remember one about not playing in in a power station. The kid kept getting zapped. Scared the wotsits out of me. Plus, I loved the 'Charlie says' cartoons!
On the same page as Police Squad on Blu-Ray...

TOP SECRET with Val Kilmer (as made by the Zuckers and Jim Abrahams, same guys behind Airplane and the Naked Gun) is finally getting a Blu-Ray release exclusive to Australia for about $13 USD on Amazon.

Does anyone know if David Lynch's Lime Green set is worth getting? Initially I thought it was a set of all of his movies with some bonus stuff, but it seems to only have a few of his films, and mostly short films, experimental stuff, and bonus content. While I'm interested in watching it all, the cheapest I can find it is around $110 on ebay.
Does anyone have this and can attest to its quality?

Edit: I went ahead and ordered it.

The review says the slightly censored UK release and the uncensored US release are the same disc. Depending on which region player you use, A or B, it will load up a different cut of the film. Because the US R-Rating is a little harder than a UK 15-rating, Hollywood movies are sometimes slightly trimmed for the UK to avoid an 18-rating. So I wonder if there other blu-rays that work like that?

Interesting!  Never heard of region-dependent viewing on a disc!

1989's 'Scandal' featuring John Hurt, Ian McKellen and Bridget Fonda is getting it's first ever worldwide HD release on blu-ray from the BFI next February. Restored from original elements. Extras are still to be confirmed.
What a great, under-rated movie!

Any additional special features on this one?
I think this counts as unusual. But it's a question, not a find.

I want to buy a phase 3 Marvel Blu-ray collection from Amazon but all I can find (that aren't individual releases) are from the UK or other countries across the sea (American here). The listings claim to be region free. Can I trust this claim? Are UK Blu-ray discs of American films ever converted to 25fps or do they usually keep their native frame rate? I don't know if it's different from PAL DVD standards.

Does anyone here have one of the UK Marvel box sets to see if the box says it's region free? Even an earlier phase would probably be set up the same way I assume.

As far as I know, all UK Marvel Studios releases are region-free. I've bought some UK Blu-rays of "Agent Carter" and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." from Zavvi, and they are region-free and play perfectly in my Region A Blu-ray player.

I've got the phase1 blu-ray UK set and it's region ABC. I don't have phase3 but eBay is a good place to try and find photos of such items. This current listing has a photo of one of the discs which clearly says ABC: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MCU-Marvel-Studios-Cinematic-Universe-Phase-Three-3-Part-One-Blu-Ray/283867877983?epid=22033848287&hash=item4217d8125f:g:cOoAAOSwxOJesDP1

They'll never be converted from 23.97fps to 25fps no. Most of the region free/ABC discs I see in the UK have this upfront:

So they are just US discs really. A UK disc will have something like this:

Thanks guys, that makes this decision, and probably future purchases, much easier! Really good to hear.
