Julian Sanchez is complaining that there's no Region 1 release of a movie he likes. Let me do my occasional recommendation of the Norcent DP300 DVD player. It's cheap, seems to play just about every format imaginable, and by punching a few buttons on the remote you can remove the region coding. It also has a PAL/NTSC converter so you'll have no problems playing any international DVD.* Best of all, you can get one for under $50.
*Note that versions change over time, so if they've changed the player since I bought mine all of this may be no longer be operative.
