How in the world are we this many years into blu-ray and the studios still don't even have all of the John Hughes classics out on blu-ray?

So long as the player can send out 8bits, sure. And the degrade isn't that much, it just makes smooth, non-dithered gradients look much smoother, but that doesn't happen too much outside of graphics...

Some useless DRM that will save them in way at all you are actually defending?

I don't know, but I do know that basically every single computer monitor that is 4k or UHD or 5k won't be able to play these even though they sure as heck should be able to. What a freaking joke.

Yup, the studios just shoot themselves in the foot and then cry and blame everything on piracy.

A great way to boost sales is to drive away all your loyal paying customers. A great move.
