Default Word of caution to those who want to import Dutch titles

Make sure you check what company is releasing the movie(s) you want, as the quality of releases by small, independent Dutch companies will often not be up to standards. Wrong aspect ratio, lossy audio instead of HD audio, BD25 instead of BD50, 1080i instead of 1080p etc., there have been alot of issues with releases from these companies in the past.

Companies to look out for are DFW (Dutch Film Works), Eone Benelux and the now defunct A-film.

Some of their releases have been fine but alot of them are not so be warned!

The Grey, Underworld, Olympus Has Fallen, Superhero Movie, Broken City from the top of my head, there's too many actually.

Here's an (incomplete) list (hasn't been updated since 2013) of Dutch (Nederland) titles to watch out for, these are not just DFW releases mind you:

These companies with their past faulty releases are the main reasons I had my BD players made region free.

In addition, having a region free player also has other advantages, like not having to worry about region codes for both BD and DVDs.

Avoid everything released by Dutch Film Works (DFW). They are going to hunt down and fine people who download because they don't want to buy their subpar releases. Everyone should boycott them, in- and outside The Netherlands.

so how is it possible that DFW is a legit company who sels Blu-Ray's and DVD's for years and never ever had any problems with what they're are selling ? Because i buy their shit for years now and never had a complain about it. So where is this BS coming from ?
