the 1st pressing LTD release has BD50 on slip not BD25 like amaray,
[Show spoiler]Attachment 75184

according to OFDb the first pressing used a 25GB disc too so it's probably just a misprint on the slip. Illusions/Sunfilm seemed to put everything on 25GB discs using the MPEG2 codec back then it seems.

The German Blu-ray of the 60s Doris Day thriller Midnight Lace looks worse than DVD quality, almost close to VHS. Total rip-off.

Does the German Blu-ray release of Night Hunt (aka Gone) have English subtitles, and if so, would this German Blu-ray release be worth getting, or is it one best avoided?

Plus there's unsubtitled foreign dialogue. If anything, the same label's release of Stick is even worse - none of the extras (trailer and stills gallery) from the DVD edition and it actually looks like a downscale of the DVD, with worse picture quality.

The Last Man on Earth. Audio sync issues are pretty bad, not to mention sub-par PQ. Others have stated the US DVD has equal PQ without the audio issues.

What makes it worse is that there is a proper HD version of this on MGM HD. Even if all they did was port over the HDTV it would have been a major improvement.

SHANGHAI NOON (or SHANG-HIGH NOON as it is called in Germany, because the distributer thought Germans otherwise would not get the joke...) from Highlight:

Whereas the DVD from VCL had the correct aspect ratio (2,35:1) and optional English subtitles for the Chinese language scenes, the Blu-ray ist terribly cropped to 1,77:1 and has burnt-in German subtitles for the Chinese bits.

the German release of Only Lovers Left Alive comes with German forced subs, alas. And there's no HD track on it either.

I was disappointed because I couldn't find the Blu-ray at Müller or Saturn (DVD only) today. Now I'm glad I didn't. This sucks

well, you may have been lucky that you didn't realize it was the Blu-ray because the Blu-ray comes in a DVD amaray case

OK, so a clever guy found out how to bypass the problem and posted it on Amazon. All you have to do is choose the German audio track and then switch to the English audio track via remote when the movie starts and you can watch it without forced subs.

Also, the movie's in 1080p/50Hz. Don't know if that is the way it is supposed to be or not though, that would depend on the way it was shot I guess. The French release seems to be 5 minutes longer however, so 60Hz..... .

Ahh I really didn't know about the Blu in DVD packaging

So it's possible to bypass the subs. I guess I might pick it up after all, even with DVD amaray and "weak" audio grrr

Just wasted $31 on the German BD of LORELEI'S GRASP. This is a lousy upconvert from the German DVD source (I am guessing). No day for night filters added, making it inferior to the BCI release. Zero improvement in image quality, in fact it might even be a bit less defined.

Yeah, I was disappointed as well. It's not awfully unwatchable, but still lacking in almost every department. Such a shame because I really like this movie.

The Alligator 1/2 set is an upscaled mess - avoid!
