Aren't they? Their titles have been quite competent, and in the case of their Full Moon titles, easily superior to the US BDs. The 88 Films BD of Bloody Birthday didn't "blow away" the US release because it was already a pretty decent release, but it is marginally superior. Do you really want to compare something like (NSFW): http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-...rge2/large_bloody_birthday_88_05_blu-ray_.jpg http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-...rge2/large_bloody_birthday_88_04_blu-ray_.jpg to the example you gave of a good Code Red BD title (Just Before Dawn): http://www.mondo-digital.com/justbeforedawn2big.jpg http://www.mondo-digital.com/justbeforedawn5big.jpg Which one is lacking in detail/definition? Which one has natural film grain, and which one has compression artifacts? As far as BD goes, Code Red is far from an example of a good label. I have their first 7 BDs just because other releases are not entirely likely, but if there's a label that makes almost zero effort in providing a good product, without almost any kind of quality control, it's Code Red. Most of their titles have compression problems, which would be easily avoidable if two shits were given about the product they are releasing. But since most of these titles aren't getting any other releases, people keep buying them (I'm "guilty" of buying plenty of Code Red titles as well), and they continue working like this. And for the record, while far from perfect, the Scorpion BD titles I have are easily superior to the Code Red BDs I have. You want to see what a good genre release looks like? Check any of the Vinegar Syndrome BDs.
