This Island Earth (Mediumrare BD)

Does anyone here own the UK spec Blu-ray release of This Island Earth from Mediumrare Entertainment? If so, may I please request comments on the PQ and if possible, screencaps?

On the Beaver, the Mediumrare version is not reviewed but if it is the same transfer as the US Shout Factory release, I don't want it. The Shout one is over-grainy to the point of noisy, oversaturated colours with excessively red skin tones and in short, horrible. I much prefer the subtler transfer of the French release from Elephant Films but though it has English audio, am put off by the French title on the cover.

Yes, I have checked that and the Beaver link. Not sure which transfer Mediumrare is using but if it is the same as the Shout one, I am definitely not going to order it. Also, I have discovered that a lot of viewed reviews from the US are very often heavily biased against their own companies and I have been tripped up in the past fro believing them. But not this time; I have seen several screencaps of the Shout release and they are pukeworthy in the extreme with RED skin tones that look anything but natural. See for yourself in the Beaver link.
