One thing we can be absolutely sure of with the Olive re-releases is that they'll be single-layered, with a fixed bitrate of either 20 or 22 Mbits/sec. All their previous releases have been so. Hope they give these films some more breathing room, and utilize all of the disc space, but my expectations are very low...

Why the low bitrate?

I don't know. Seems Olive's encoding software has been pegged at 20-22 Mbit since they started releasing... Of course some will argue "bitrate isn't everything", but *all other things being equal*, why not give a 14 or 15 gb encode at 22 Mbits a more expansive 23 gb at ~30-32 mbits/sec, and we're bound to see a more natural, film-like look in the image. It won't hurt anything, and how can it cost Olive anything more to fill out the movies to the available disc space? It's somebody doing a little math (taking the length of the film into account), and pressing a slider from "22" to something a bit higher to fill out the space.

Beaver has been saying Olive's releases are "typically modest" since the beginning.
