I received my package last week which included Maximum Overdrive, Private School, The Wild Life and Nurse 2D Uncensored and I wanted to start off by offering a sincere thank you again to DJ and the rest of Team Blu for once again putting together several outstanding projects.
After testing out all of the discs from a functionality standpoint, I am happy report (again) that i haven't encountered any issues to speak off on any of these discs. Everything functions as it should and I am truly appreciative of the time and effort spent on the QA/QC of not just these but all of Team Blu projects. I think what truly separates Team Blus projects from other blu-ray projects I’ve come across is this QA/QC aspect. I bring this up because the only projects that I have of Team Blu that I didn’t get directly from them were Sheena and The White Buffalo (BTW these are another 2 excellent projects worth getting when they are available) which were obtained from the ‘spleen and took me 20 hrs. each to download…I know, I know I have a crappy internet connection. Anyway, after downloading and burning them to a BD, they both behaved as they should (i.e. perfectly) right out of the burner. I mention this because I have downloaded several other projects from others which took the same amount of time to download and the results were mixed at best and I later was able to confirm that other people had the same issues with these projects that I did. With Team Blu, you never have to worry about that…so download these with confidence.
In closing , I get the vibe sometimes that the team wishes that it could work faster and are frustrated that they don't but for me when you look at the level of care put into the transfers, bonus materials, elaborate menus, artwork (both inside and out) and disc art, the TLC put into these is very apparent and I say take as long as you guys need as the results are well worth it. Fellow OT member vbangle, hit it right on the head when he said that there is no difference anymore between commercial retail product and Team Blu's because truthfully there isn't. Actually, I might venture a step further and say that Team Blus projects are superior to the vast majority of what’s being commercially released that we all lay down are hard earned money for. For instance, take this Maximum Overdrive project, which included lobby/post cards and a poster…totally unexpected and incredible:) I mean it when I say that I’m eagerly anticipating Team Blu's releases more than 95% of what’s coming to retail in the near future. DJ, You_Too, & Deathcab…I congratulate you again on your triumphs and encourage you keep up the great work!!!
Note: I will update this post with some photos of these items when I get a chance this weekend.
