The German DVD/Blu market really is a minefield:
-
  • are they censored? (now online shops put "uncut" to ensure customers - phew!)
  • The quality/upscaling etc
  • English is on box, but not on the disk!
  • Annoying "limited to only 100 copies", so silly prices!!
  • Always bloody hard to buy, obscure German sites - hard to find/navigate, pay for etc
  • Can either be dirt cheap or just daft pricing
  • The big clamshell boxes and German titles everywhere on the packaging
  • Being unsure if they are legit or not!

Arrggggghhh.....ok I kind of don't like them however they do release some nice titles, and the mainstream labels come out with decent barebone disks for less than 10 quid.

I only trust Camera Obscura, Subkultur and FilmArt labels.

Wonder if this'll be worth the upgrade to blu from Grindhouse. Ordered the dvd from Diabolik when they announced the package for The Beyond, regretted it when I heard of the blu coming out, now i wonder if it'll be worth it?  ???

I was talking to Bob Murawski of Grindhouse. He assured me their release won't be anything like this garbage from XT.

As much as I agree with you on all the other points, this one made me chuckle a bit. You are talking about German releases after all, what did you expect?  :-\

Leaving out bigger players like Koch et al., you could also add Anolis and Motion Picture to this list IMHO. And CMV, even though they are usually not a top tier label quality-wise and in terms of extras, are at least rather inexpensive. With most other genre labels, like '84 Entertainment, XT, Illusions ULTD, X-Rated etc., it is indeed the minefield that broonage was talking about. I wonder how the upcoming Austrian label Cinestrange Extreme, whose boss also used to post here on LLL, will fare against its competitors.

Lol....totally obvious I know  :D. If I ran a cult label I would try my hardest to reach out to the international market and put original titles, bit like what CO do. 2 years on from buying a German disk, I look at it's spine and really have no idea what I'm looking at! Doh! Same with French disks mind you and I speak French!  :-* I guess I have a mental/virtual reference of titles and have hard time moving away to obscure alternative titles.
