With regard to DVD's (and how films are transferred to disc), what do you reckon the worst film company is? My vote goes to Warner Brothers (otherwise known as "can't be bothered"). a) they don't use DTS on ANY of their releases (cheapskates ) b) they insist on using cheapo cardboard clipcases for their DVD releases (cheapskates ) Close second goes to Columbia Tristar for thier annoying habit of releasing a film, waiting a few months, then re-releasing the superbit version in the hope that people buy it again (despite their superbits not showing massive improvements over the original). Why can't they just release the film as two disc in the first place, one as high bitrate and the other with the extras? (like most other film studios do - have "two (properly mastered) disc" versions out) On the other hand, close to first place is the Tartan Video company. They release those fringe films that I like (they seem like a film studio version of film4 ). Back to the initial point, my heart always sinks when I see a good film on cinema, only to realise it's Warner Bro, knowing that they'll release the worst possible version onto DVD.
