I think he'd really have better luck going with "double feature" Blu-ray discs for some of the films. I'd definitely buy them even as single releases, but he'd almost definitely sell more via the double route at standard prices.

I'd want Final Examination and Glass Trap on Blu as well but I doubt he owns the rights to those.

I don't remember the details but as I recall he has a bad track record when doing the transfers himself for DVD. In general there was unnecessarily low compression on titles like Scalps and lots of macro-blocking resulted. In the end I don't imagine these will be much better than a DVD.

A lot of the relatively recent Retromedia DVD titles (Evil Toons, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, etc.) had horribly low Audio bitrates. Something like 96kbps or 112kbps from what I can remember.

Almost every studio (big or budget) encodes at a standard 192kbps.

I doubt we'd get anywhere close to lossless audio on any Retromedia Blu-rays!
