I think one of the greatest things about DVD combined with the internet is how easy and cheap it is to get releases from all around the world. Of course I've had a multi-region player since the early days (back in '98!) so I can pick and choose (in fact I used to buy DVDs exclusively from the US but as the format has taken off over here I have found myself buying more and more UK ones too). But my advice is either look into hacking your current player (which is often quite easy) or buy a new mult-region player which can be picked up quite cheaply if you shop around... and then you too can pick your DVDs from all around the world!!!
