ok im coming out...

i also think the packaging was made horribly, don't get me wrong the concept is great, it seems to match the mood of the movie well(its kind of like what dvds would have looked like back in the 1920s), i especially like the single disk pamphlet-like case. but still the outer case comes apart and the disks can be easily smudged and scratched when taking them out, not to mention the bible cover looks like it was printed on a home computer...

also, it seems like this would be on all discs but maybe just mine, at the end of the shot where H.W. is laying in bed and Daniel is talking to him but we cant hear him, it freezes for like a second before cutting to the shot of daniel outside with Fletcher.

Sounds like a layer change.  Sometimes layer changes are seamless, other times there is a slight pause.  Depends on the player and disc.

This is from Scarecrow Video:

"...
Well, if Paramount, back in August of last year, hadn’t signed a Faustian contract with Toshiba to take ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS to completely abandon the Blu-Ray format for eighteen months and go exclusively with Toshiba’s beloved (and now dead in the water) HD-DVD format, there might be a chance for you to view this film in Blu-Ray. As it stands though, HD-DVDs are no longer being produced and Paramount is trying to wiggle out of the aforementioned contract so that maybe they can get some Blu-Ray discs out for the 4th quarter. In the meantime, you, the consumer, are getting the shaft. No Blood for you.
..."

Sigh

The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

It's a trade off. Great picture/sound quality, bad cover art.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

the actual blu(e) casing for a start, is consistently hideous.  but yeah the artwork here is not good at all either.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
