Is Echo Bridge going to release anything else?

What the heck happened to them? They seemed to have released about twenty or so in a short span of time last year, then nothing. Anyone have any insight into this? I know the titles were mostly B movies and made for TV movies, but I did like some of them, and the prices were nice.

I think they blew their wad with the Blu cube.

No, and let's hope it stays that way.

Maybe people stopped buying that crap when they could spend $5-$10 more and get a decent title?

When a decent upconverted SD looks better than your BD titles, methinks it's time to go back to the drawing board and try to make some improvements. Although, the "polishing a turd" arguement is perfectly valid here, so it's not like it matters much in the long run I suppose.

Re: Is Echo Bridge going to release anything else?

There are a few of their titles that potentially look interesting (presuming they still own the rights to them and would be priced at what one can find their current slate at).

Big Bad Swim, The
Big Dreams Little Tokyo
Dark Mind
Fifty Pills
Good Humor Man, The
Human Trafficking
Roman
School for Seduction
Some Things That Stay
Sweet Lorraine
Sweet Talker
When Zachary Beaver Came to Town
Where There's a Will

Unfortunately many of their releases are some of the worst Blu-rays I have seen in terms of picture quality.
