Doesn't it make you mad when you sit down to watch a nice new DVD or Blu-ray, but instead of being allowed to watch the film you paid good money for, you are FORCED to endure several noisey, frantic trailers for the latest juvenile CGI comic book violent trash put out by the Studio. You can't even go direct to the menu or fast forward - my player often says "prohibited" (sez who ?). Occasionally several prods at the skip button will reveal the start menu - surely the proper place for trailers is in the Extras Dept ? Even worse were those revolting and completely ear shattering anti-Piracy things.
Talking of noise - the most obnoxious Studio Logo is the Studio Canal Nightmare Affair which will have the neighbours knocking on the wall as it is about three times louder than the film you have paid to watch. It also appears before the menu and then again before the Film. I object to this, as in most cases Studio Canal have had nothing to do with making the film - they just bought the Library. Particularly in the case of the old Rank Titles - the Man with the Gong is all we need !
Turning now to the Box - Blu-ray packaging gives even less space for information, so why does every Actor have a selection of other films they have appeared in appended to their name ? We all know that !
Also, even with a powerful magnifying glass, you cannot decipher all the cast list etc - why not print this on the back of the label so that it can be read through the transparent box when you eventually manage to remove the plastic film wrapping ?
There must be loads of other thing that get you going - what about specific examples of offending titles !
