I've had some really mixed experiences with the German releases.
You must know by now CR releases are at least decent.
Considering the country where I bought more BD releases from this year is Germany, my experiences with German releases have been quite positive. You just have to know there are 2-3 labels to avoid, since they always release upscalled content, usually in 1080i.
The website http://www.bluray-disc.de/
is quite useful to gather some info on cut/uncut status, and disc specs.
As for Code Red, I recently bought their first 7 BD releases, and I only wish the transfers on those were on par with most German releases I bought, since most CR BDs have significant compression problems.
Bill mentioned not long ago that he doesn't even own a BD player. I don't know if that is still true, but maybe he should get someone familiar with the format to help him out with his releases, since it would surely result is better products.
