Is Dead Mans Shoes SUPPOSED to be displayed in 1080/50i, as it is on this blu, or should it have been a progressive transfer? Was it filmed this way? I have the US dvd and WOULD get this, if it's correctly transferred, but if it's not, and there is a possibility that Optimum will lose the rights eventually and someone else will pick it up and release it correctly, I'll keep waiting, even if the quality of this blu is better than any of the dvds. No one so far has been able to answer the question of whether this film has been properly encoded or not, only speculating that it MAY have been filmed at 1080/50i originally. That's what I'm ultimately concerned about, if you (or anyone) can answer?

That's only due to the Blu-ray format technical specifications. Formally, Blu-ray does not support 1080p image at 25 FPS, but it does support 1080i at 50. So when you see 1080i/50 listed, that usually means that the progressively encoded 1080p/25 video is stored in the 1080i/50 container, where every second frame is duplicated, giving you the proper 1080p/25 output, while still adhering to the formal specifications.

So in the case of this specific film/disc, on a US tv and player(region-free) I should not see any interlacing artifacts because this is a progressive encode contained in a 1080/50i container?

I do have this release, but I haven't watched it yet, so I can't actually confirm that. Still, unless it's filmed for TV, in which case a higher frame rate might make sense, you can be 99% certain that it's in fact 1080p/25 in a 1080i/50 container. Now, whether the modern US equipment should be able to handle that, I would say... Yes? But someone more knowledgeable should be able to give you a more definitive answer.
