I really like MoC and collect them, but they keep releasing Japanese films with the wrong black level (Japanese standard starts at IRE 0) resulting in poor contrast and no actual black whatsoever. This is because the British black level standard starts higher, like around IRE 7 or 8 I think, so for these films you end up watching them that many shades too bright.

If you have a PS3 you can rectify this by setting the RGB range to 'Full' instead of 'Limited' for these films, but not all players have that option.

But yeah, MoC should know this, and should set all films to British standard.

*This doesn't apply to ALL Japanese films they release, but it's the majority of the ones that I own.
