War of the Worlds [Region 2] When will it be available in Region 1? 2006 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I’ll admit that I always have enjoyed this musical version of War of the Worlds, ever since it came out in LPs so many years ago. Great music, great narration. When I heard that it had been produced as a live stage so (rumors had abounded about this for years) I had to see it.
When I saw it was available for purchase from Amazon, I carefully made sure that I was not ordering a European-formatted disk. No, there was no indication of this at all. But when I received my shipment, I found that it would not play in my DVD player. Evidently, while it is not in the incorrect format, it is in a security region code not that of the US. My DVD couldn’t play it. I tried my laptop and it readily accepted it, but now I know that I can only switch back and fourth a total of five times before it locks my computer down for good.
I contacted both Amazon and their distributer on this and never received any email back on this, a total stonewall. The problem is that I really love this show, and so one of my laptops is perminantly allocated over to this one lousy security format.
So, the rock opera, I’d give five stars. The security format issue (and the lack of any response from either company) rates zero stars. We’ll average this experiance at “three”.
