If you open them up, there's this thing called a Blu-Ray disc inside. This has a film encoded onto it, or is that not a concern?

Bloody modern technology

Next you'll be saying that they have invented a 'television' set which shows the pictures in colour!

Rubbish! There's no such thing as 'colour' pictures! (Except for paintings.)

Seriously though, anyone who's more concerned with artwork is an artwork fan, not a movie fan. And that's perfectly okay, if that's what floats your boat. But you might get some funny looks from the people who watch the films rather than the packaging.

It's true. I have one! I always thought snooker was played with balls of different shades of grey!

That's nothing though. I was watching Tomorrow's World and they were showing this battery powered box that you can sit down and change channels with. Now you won't have to even get up! You can also change the volume too apparently!

Fact Time: The comic books have NOTHING to do with the delays. The books were finished almost 18 months ago. of the delays involved either problems with the transfer, or the Bluray slipcases.

So there.

As for 'nasty looking', I think they're the best books we've done thus far. However, I too wish they were printed larger (I was expecting them to be the same size as the Battle Royale book at least) and on glossy paper. The matt paper used, combined with the shrinking of the image, does make them look darker and more washed-out than I would have liked.

I don't know why Kentai holds that attitude, but without having an open dialogue between Arrow and him, I can't say whether that attitude is one he is right to hold, or whether he is wrong in holding it. (Apoliogies for that awful explanation. I can't find a better way of saying what I mean at the moment. )

With that said, I'm not that keen on your attitude, when you say "But hey, if that's the way he wants to be, good luck to him." It doesn't exactly make you out to be the more morally-righteous person. Surely it would make more sense for you / Arrow, to say to Kentai, "Ok, I gather there are issues you have with us, let's discuss them." Take the upper-hand. Offer him a hand, an invite to have constructive dialogue with yourselves, and see why he holds his "screw-you Arrow" opinion, and see if you can actively find a manner to deflate that concept, and get him to see things in a more appropriate fashion.

Proverbially-telling him "Well if that's your attitude, then so be it" is no better than his attitude towards you guys... in my opinion. You're both being closed-minded, and to be blunt, very pig-headed. Maybe it's a bloke thing?

And no, it doesn't matter to me whose fault it is. It's not about apportioning blame, it's about both sides acting in a mature fashion to solve a clear grievance. At the minute, he's acting as badly as you are, and you're acting as bad as he is.




Not at all. I simply state what I have seen, and I have seen in the short time I've been a member here, threads shut-down, and Moderators telling members "X subject is not up for discussion", or posting polls asking for feedback, and then when they get the feedback, the feedback is completely ignored, and Arrow jsut does whatever it wants to do.

Thus it seems to me, that in some instances, Arrow is no better than any politician: requesting public opinion, and then totally ignoring that opinion. Seems completely to me. If Arrow wants to do whatever it wants to do, then that's fine. I don't have a problem with that. But don't court feedback or information from your members or customers, and then just ignore them.




I was actually having a little joke with you all, a bit of self-deprecating humour, at my own expense. It wasn't an attack on yourself, or anyone else. I was taking the michael out of myself, due to the irony of my post, and that I could see how the irony might seem a tad hypocritical of me!

As I say, I don't know how Arrow and Shameless is run, when it comes to what films they select, what ones get remastered or whatever, and what ones they simply release as-is. I don't know about all the technical work that Arrow has to do, to get a film "up-to-scratch". I don't know how many people are involved in Arrow, what kind of effort is put-in, or anything else. As such, if it's a proverbial one-man-band operation, then I would be a lot more forgiving of errors and problems, than if it was, say, a major Hollywood Studio such as 20th Century Fox.

Irrespective, some Arrow releases do have issues - some I know of, others I don't. For the benefit of everyone, I feel that it is better that issues are discussed openly and honestly, with neither side taking pot-shots at the other, rather than simply being shut-down and told "That's not up for discussion".

Any company who refuses to discuss an issue, regarding its products, is going to fall by the wayside, sooner or later. I would hate that to happen with Arrow / Shameless, et al.
You're not keen on my attitude? It actually seems to me like you enjoy confrontations with people? So i'm as bad as him because I think he's unprofessional for saying f**k you Arrow? And I'm pig-headed????? Wow!
