I hate Universal.
When it comes to home video distribution, I hate Universal. They're the f**cking pits. They refuse to release Phantasm II despite the efforts of Don Coscarelli and Anchor Bay to release/sell it. They won't re-release MST3K: The Movie and their current Army of Darkness disc sucks on toast. They also refuse to give any love to Halloweens II & III but instead just couple them together for a quick-buck re-release.

Y'know that Darkman Trilogy that came out recently? None of the films have chapter menus. The second disc doesn't have any kind of menu at all(!!!!); it just plays the movie over and over.

The Psycho II/III/IV release last week is much the same. Only Psycho II has chapter menus and that's because it's a clone of the previous release. Of course neither of these releases have *any* kind of insert. It's a fine testament to the Universal standards of quality.

Shouldn't chapter menus be standard now-a-days?

I agree The re-leases now from MGM,WB,Anchor BAY,even Columbia have improved so much they're definitly turning up the heat and Universal should catch up and make the better edtions they know the fans will buy.

Plus, they're the only major studio that exclusively supports HD-DVD. I may be biased towards Blu-Ray, but it's annoying to me nevertheless.
