- Doing It for the Art: The intense care the company puts into its releases.
- Meaningful Release Date:
- The Blu-ray of A Night to Remember was released on March 2012, just one month shy of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
- Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films was released on October 29th, 2019, just 5 days away from Godzillas 65th Anniversary.
- This was intended with the standalone Blu-ray release of Tokyo Olympiad, which is slated for release on June 23, 2020, exactly one month ahead of what would have been the opening of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had they not been postponed to 2021 by the coronavirus pandemic.
- Milestone Celebration: The Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films box set is Spine #1000.
- What Could Have Been: The collection had planned to release some films on LaserDisc, but ended up as cancelled. Among these films include Blue Velvet, The Bridge on the River Kwai, A Few Good Men, and All Monsters Attack(!). The first and last films in that list finally made their way to the collection in 2019.
