Fox - terrific 2-disc SEs (BTILC, DHT); DTS; excellent customer support; TV series done right in boxsets (Simpsons, X-Files) Paramount - starting 2-disc SEs (Gump); high bit-rate video; nifty menus (WW); excellent customer support; Trek boxsets to come MGM - starting 2-disc SEs (Hannibal) & DTS; many old catalogue releases at reasonable prices; TV series in sturdy keepcase boxsets (Stargate); fixed Terminator problems for R1 Disney - zero to hero - anamorphic new releases; DTS; the best 2-disc SEs; beginning to reissue their laserdisc boxsets for DVD (looking forward to Tron!); 3-disc SEs coming (PH) Anchor Bay - anamorphic support second-to-none; excellent transfers on low-budget films that other studios wouldn't bother with (recent Hammer releases); terrific LE box-sets (Wicker Man, + Evil Dead next year); DTS and ES support coming Columbia Tristar - terrific transfers (even at low-bitrates); SUPERBITS coming to please the videophiles; 2-disc sets (MIB, CEOT3K) & DTS; fancy packaging for classics (BOTRK, LOA); beginning to reissue their early product in SE form (Zorro) Criterion - excellent releases of classic films (bar the recent non-anamorphic disappointment of W&I); DTS; continuing well-thought-out extras and stylish menus New Line - top-notch transfers (even on deleted scenes!); 2-disc SEs with DTS (Se7en); InfiniFilm pushing the DVD interactivity boundaries (+keepcases!) Artisan - SE's coming in novelty cases (TR, BI); Twin Peaks coming in boxsets Dreamworks - 2-disc SE's (Gladiator); DTS; clearly-labelled packaging; "unrated" alternative releases (RT); superb all-round quality - the studio that gets it right the first time Universal - 2-disc "Ultimate" Editions; excellent 1-disc Collector's Editions; DTS; clearly-labelled packaging; "unrated" alternative releases (AP, PB) and even Warner: Warner - slow but well-restored releases of catalogue titles (BH, SM); DVD-18; V; B5 coming soon If I've left anything out, please say so! Summary: Don't let Warner's insanity over pan/scam blind you to the big picture: we have a lot of excellent studios here, and more quality releases than my bank account is comfortable with. 99% of DVDs are OAR, and despite what Warner's marketing computers think, everyone I know equates DVD with Widescreen & Extras, and those that don't like that (a tiny, tiny minority) are happy enough to buy the cheaper VHS alternative (or rather, rent VHS). We've Never had it better than this.
