I doubt you'll ever see a better release.

As it was made for tv it can't really look any better.

Brainiac DVD
The french edition, this time with the correct disc inside, it's now the 4th time I've bought this...

Also pre-ordered Black Sunday BD/DVD, Django Prepare A Coffin DVD and will soon pre-order the Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection 2 box-set.

Seems all the dvd's are sourced from old video masters anyway. ;)
"The transfer for this new release from Mya Communication is a slight improvement over the now OOP German DVD release from Dragon Entertainment. Some improvements on this new DVD release from Mya Communication is that the image looks crisper and colors & flesh tones also fare better. Also Mya Communication’s transfer has been flagged for progressive playback while the Dragon Entertainment transfer was interlaced." (10kbullets)

Good news that you finally found one with the correct disc. :thumb:
Did you get it from Belgium or somewhere else? ;)

Bought it from an amazon.fr seller who initially would only send to france, but I asked him and he was ok with it.
But thanks for the tip anyway :)

Whilst I appreciate that crushed blacks are not desirable, ****ed if I'm going to start analysing all the films I watch to see if it's there or not. For the record, I thought Timecop looked terrific. But crushed blacks you say? Sorry, didn't notice any. If I start to analyse films like this I'm going to be constantly adjusting TV and player output settings and paying less attention to the actual film than on the technical aspects of the transfer. If something looks obviously poor, then I'll say so. But to start analysing films frame-by-frame and studying the picture for problems - well....that's just not my scene, y'know? If I got too perfectionist about it I'd never be happy and my enjoyable hobby would turn into a curse that I don't want to be burdened with.

I see, but films who aren't supposed to have crushed blacks it's not so nice to look at for me. It's noticeable for me when i watch a film which have poor black levels, even if i didn't know it had it before or i didn't try to look for it. If you don't notice it, good for you. Not everybody notices it or have a problem with it. You at least know what it is now.

Only a quid from age concern for a bit of sword and sorcery, not bad!
