The good gentlemen over at Sound & Vision magazine have put together a report card on the movie studios. S&V wanted to call these offending studios out, and hopefully put an end to sad sack Blu-ray releases. Sony, Universal and Disney all did well. Each scored a B or above, with Sony garnering an A-. Sony releases a lot, does great video transfers, includes TrueHD audio and they have a huge stake in Blu-ray. With the PS3 it is not surprising at all that Sony would be at the forefront of quality Blu-ray titles.
ON the other hand The Weinstein Company and MGM received a D- and F respectively. MGM only released 8 Blu-rayís this year, and all of them are lazy affairs. You can read the full article, which goes into a lot of detail on how the grading system works and why each company gets the score assigned.
