They are

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.

What makes you think that? Looks like plenty of true black to me:

I just checked my Destoroyah disc and sure enough, switching to PC levels causes shadow detail to vanish.

The new Yojimbo & Sanjuro discs from the BFI (which annoyingly use transfers that are otherwise far superior to what Criterion used).

Interesting thread.

Severin's "Santa Sangre" looks like a candidate of this error, to me. The small amount of letterboxing (it's 1.85:1) look milky grey rather than black...

That definitely appears to be the case when you compare caps against the UK edition:

UK: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/screen...786&position=5
US: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/screen...178&position=3
UK: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/screen...786&position=8
US: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/screen...178&position=6

I'd say the US version is actually superior in every other regard though. Probably best to have that one and just correct for it.
