Gotta add "Explorers", which has a stretched image on both discs (no replacement).

as I said in the first part of the post, I didn't include things that weren't necessarily their fault and that was a baked in issue from the master Paramount provided and as I said on the thread itself it's possible Paramount wouldn't have allowed them to fix it

was there an actual issue with it or was it just another bad encode case?
if it's just another bad encode I left it off intentionally

It is a bad encode, but especially bad even for them. There are sequences where the bitrate drops to the low single digits on the UHD, whereas the included blu-ray doesn't have this issue.



ENCODING ERRORS FOR THE CRAFT 4K UHD TIMESTAMPS

The first 4 mins 30 seconds Then fixes itself.

2nd - 5 mins 11 seconds until 5 mins 28 seconds.

3rd - 29 mins until 30 mins and 10 seconds.

4th - 53 mins until they walk out of the cave.

5th - 1 hour 33

6th - 1 hour 36

that is definitely a bizarre issue, I'll add it just because it's a worse encode than usual

Arrow Video has just released Nightmare at Noon, which seems to have rectified the screen format problem.

Then it jumps back to widescreen when the movie cuts to the next shot. Below are the time codes of the errors. They are brief, but very distracting. One of them happens during an action scene. 18:25 - 18:30, 40:17 - 40:19, & 1:04:15 - 1:04:35
Replacement Program: None

I kinda figured that'd be fixed, I'll add it here as the "solution"

I altered Black Christmas to include the new 4K disk and took out the replacement program for the old release

What exactly makes Howl's Moving Castle's audio "poor"? I've searched the forums and can't seem to find an explanation. Like, is it a lossy encode or something?

Haven't played my disc yet but read that Iron Monkey's English subs are out of sync with the Cantonese audio track. https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread...=357184&page=4

Its like they didn't bother to do a QC pass.
