Is anyone else out there concerned that FFH (now under Films Media Group) is
still releasing DVDs without any real DVD authoring evident? There is no
real main menu, you cannot select a specific chapter, and no audio or
subtitle options. I understand not going to the expense to add a bunch of
bonus features to films that have been released for years, but the lack of
even the most rudimentary features mentioned above is cause for concern.
Does anyone know if FFH is moving toward altering this dilemma, or is the
status quo in order for a while? -Brian
