Another year is about to end and what a year it's been for cracking Blu Ray releases (Sorry Dem,no Betamax) so here is your chance to vote for the label YOU think has done the most to earn label of the year!

Vote in the poll below.
One vote per person,so think long and hard before casting......

Very difficult choice, since many labels have been amazing this year. 88 and 101 have given us some vhs classics back, while Arrow have been amazing with tuff like Nightbreed & AWIL.

My vote however goes to Eureka, for The African Queen & Der Golem. I have picked up few older film noir titles from them this year & personally they have been my fave label.

I went for Eureka too, although 88 Films have gotten so much better in the last 12 months I feel, and while Indicator has consistently put out quality releases, they're not always something I'm interested in, same with BFI but their Box Sets in the last year have been amazing, Jarman!

Eureka released The White Reindeer a film i've always wanted to see and also the bizarre November which although modern seems like a sister film to The White Reindeer in it's weirdness.

This was a tough one. I voted Indicator as they seem to have the most overall effort in putting something extra in the films they release. But I've brought more films fromm 88 films than anyone else.
