Question. What are the De Wolfe Library Cues?

Yes, yes I know....

Bollocks to this release, region locked.
I'll spare the board the stream of profanity I want to unleash.
I guess I could pay $100 for part of a set I can access then pay again if Rubenstein seems to share with the States.

The £10 more UHD version of the set is region free.

Otherwise, a region free player is a joy to have. If you don't have one already modded, you may be able to buy an DIY kit from a vendor like JVB

Some inexpensive off brand players are hackable via their remotes as well.

Yes yes I know I know.
I'm too:
Old, overwhelmed, over-media-saturated
to fool with multi region business.
I've kept mum release after release with this foolishment, but Dawn is my favorite film, so...touchy, this one.
Older I get, I'm less inclined to pull discs off shelf to watch.

Anyways, I hope some bloke will share more info about the DeWolfe cds??

That's only one disc out of seven... and the discs that contain the actual movies themselves are the ones we can access! And those discs have bonus features as well! This is a win in my book.

*EDIT* I failed at adding in that moment...

Why do Americans seem so averse to owning a multi-region player? The rest of the planet has managed to deal with it to get the generally superior region 1/A releases that have come out over the last twenty-odd years, but a distributor outside the US puts together a decent edition and suddenly the Yanks are all "HELP HELP I'M BEING OPPRESSED."

It's the first thing I check when looking into new hardware, half of them are multi-region out of the box and the other half can usually be hacked just by typing a code into the remote. It's really not difficult.

All the rest of the music in the film that isn't Goblin.

I think you answered your own question. We're spoiled and think everything should be 1/A by default, and get offended when that doesn't happen. Which is rare, hence our sheltered feelings.

Me, I just dont need more shit - more players, more wires, more websites outside of the usual suspects to monitor more releases that are afield from those here at home plate, more duplicates of films I've bought 7 times in my 40 odd years on this planet.

It's a game, I hate it, that's all.

Not trying to sound like a prick but its personal to me.
I have cds, downloads, vinyl...hell even cassettes...to contend with music wise. Tracking too many things on all these formats - it's ridiculous.
No disrespect Timothy, to you - I've just had enough of the format/delivery wars these people pointlessly foist on us.

Base.com.

https://www.base.com/

My copy came to only $65 in U.S. currency for the basic Blu set. big grin

And, yes...any serious movie fan requires a region-free player for amazing releases like this. You can get one for under $100 these days, and you won't regret it.

Did you pay via PayPal?
I pre-ordered at Base, too. Mine came to £60 and change, but it's not going to get charged till late October, when it ships. By that point, the exchange rate could be the same or hellaciously bad if the dollar hits the skids during a second wave of Covid lockdowns.
Historically I think it usually hovers around $1.30-$1.35 at that time of the year- which would mean this set is going to cost around $80 (or more if your card/bank charges an exchange fee).
When I got my first region free player in 2014, I think the exchange rate was over $1.60 to £1.
If it gets that high again, this set will ultimately come in just under $100.

I really want the CDs, otherwise I'd just take my chances and wait for a slimmed down version.
If it comes in at $100 I may have to pass.

Here's my e-mail confirmation:

Dawn of the Dead: Limited Edition [Blu-Ray] (x1) , £58.33 + £1.69 shipping
Pre-order, Due for release on 26 October 2020

Your total bill is £60.02


According to Currency Converter, that comes to about $65 U.S. And even if it turns out to be more, I honestly don't care. This is a set that's gonna be worth every penny.

Needle drops from a well known music library:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Wolfe_Music

De Wolf is well known around here for their cues used in 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', but they've obv done a lot more than that.

Okay, so is the 4K set region-free or region blocked? I'm hearing it's both. Which is just lunacy.

That's all I need to know before deciding to purchase.

It's coming up as just under $75 for me right now- and that's at a relatively decent $1.23 to £1.

Is there a chance you were converting from Euros to Dollars?

4K UHDs are always region free, no matter where or what the content.

Only the blu rays and Bds would possibly be locked (and the Bds are locked to R:B in the case of this set here). If you haver a 4K player and compatible display, you're good to go with the 4K set.
