Speaking of Cry Danger, there's a pretty sharp transfer available via streaming through Netflix... watched it last night, and it's on par with my DVD-R of the (very decent) TCM print.


Dark City is also available via streaming.  It looks decent, miles ahead of the hideous bootleg I used to own.

Received the disc from Axelmusic today and took a quick look into it. The picture quality is good, but not great, to me, it seems a bit soft and the disc appears to be interlaced.Nonetheless I'm happy. Added four shots from the disc, the last one showing some combing.
