|But the P&S and WS on one side with extras on other side, thus DVD 14, that i have seen on about 5 MGM titles now, has to stop. All of those i have seen (Jeepers, Legally Blond, ...) have way too much compression problems. A huge step backwards for MGM, compared to their Hannibal etc. efforts.|
Interesting that 'Bandits' was a DVD18, i think. WS and some extras on side one, P&S and probably the same extras on side 2. Since the WS occupies a dual layer side, like most normal movies, the PQ is much better than their recent DVD14 titles.
Doing it the Bandits way is almost optimal. The way they should really do it, is a DVD18 with WS on side one, *movie only*, using the whole dual layer side A. And P&S slightly stronger compressed with the extras on side B.
Thats the only way everyone would win. And i don't mind the P&S casual viewers would mind the slightly higher compression. Even if there is quite an amount of extras, using half of the dual-layer space, then the P&S transfer would still have the around 5GB, just they have on the current DVD14's anyway.
