    Yes it's amazing the difference that adopting the ECHR into UK law in 2000 has made, stuff like The Beyond (in uncut form) would have been illegal and liable to seizure before then but is now freely available.

    I still have a customs "Notice of seizure: Indecent & Obscene material" from the 90's, from when I tried to import an un-cut Evil Dead laserdisc. Funny how times changes, the same version is now openly available from my local supermarket, only 12 years ago it was considered so "dangerous" that it was illegal to import a copy for personal use.

    Yes... I e-mailed them first to inquire.
    I don't think that they've been sending out shipping notices.

    No they don´t send any shipping notes.

    The DVD were all sent last week and the blu-rays were all sent this week.

    Just checking over the "faulty" disc. In my opinion the image and sound are VERY good, can't wait to see what the "corrected" disc looks like

    Havent had my Blu Ray yet. I'm in the UK so should expect to get it before you guys in the States. No post tomorrow as its Good Friday so i'm hoping it'll be here Sat. Not sure if the faulty disc did look good. The image was very bright with dull colours and lack of detail.The bitrate was quite low at times(dropping to just over 5mbps at times) Looking forward to see how the higher bitrate version looks. Sound was pretty good in DTS-HD Master though with a whopping 4mbps at times.

    I know that site for years and I think is really good.

    The weird thing is that I can only watch the dvd comparisons... the HD ones never appear in my computer, they start loading and then nothing...

    That is strange I have never had any problems opening up the hd files. Could be a monitor or graphic card setting?

    Same problem here, but I solved it by pressing one of the language flags on the top of the screen, which makes the screen reload without any errors messages.

    Even the faulty disc looks incredible compared to the old AB DVD :)

    Had an email today saying they were shipping my DVD? Hope they send me the blu Ray of this and not the DVD.

    I got my BD last week but I haven't bothered to check it out yet, didn't really care much about the flaws on the first one I got...
