Title: Where to buy old region 2 DVD's?
Post by: mr_lou on 20:09, 29 September 20
Does anyone know of a good source for old region 2 DVD movies from the 70's, 80's and 90's with European subtitles?

I can find most movies on eBay, but never with the subtitles I want/need.

I still have a collection of European DVDs. What should I be looking for?

Well, I can list some examples of movies I've been looking for:

Killer Clowns from outer space
Existenz
Amazon Women on the Moon
Screamers (1995)
Lifeforce (1985)
Knight Rider 2000 (1991)
The challengers (1990)
EnemyMine
Who's that girl (1987) (Madonna)
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures (1989)
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991)
Red Dog (2011)
Little Shop of Horrors (Rick Moranis) (1986)
Dr. Detroit (1983)
Loose Cannons (1990)
Mannequin (1987)
The Lake House (2006)
Repoman (1984)
The Hidden (1987)
The Wraith
Timescape (1992) aka Grand Tour: Disaster In Time
Forbidden Planet

They're impossible to find (for me) in a region 2 version with danish subtitles.
I'm kinda hoping I just haven't found the right shop yet.

Thanks a lot for that offer!
But..... do they have danish subtitles? That's important. :-)

Nothing on the list there that I might have, but I'll go through the box later and let you know what I have.

Amazon's website is good for info though.

For instance, reveals that there was a Region 2 DVD available for Who's That Girl?, but the subtitles were English, German and Polish
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Whos-Region-English-audio-subtitles/dp/B00YSAXTG0

If anything, might help you narrow the list down a bit.

Haven't looked at Amazon, but have searched a lot on eBay. Sometimes there's info about subtiles. Mostly there's not. Sometimes I contact seller to ask. But mostly there are no danish subtitles, and that's the whole problem.

I can give Amazon a shot. Never shopped there so far though.
