It is indeed the same extras than Carlotta, except 101 includes the audio commentary and a booklet, while Carlotta has a big 200 pages book. And their release will be encoded by David M.
Sorry, which one is encoded by David M.?

As for the Carlotta, is it true they force French subs on non-French films, or is it a case-by-case basis?

The Carlotta disc will be encoded by David.
Their forced subs are a case-by-case basis. They however mostly don't force them, rather than the opposite, and it's very rare to find Carlotta releases with forced subs.

Phase IV looks really good with Saul Bass’ shorts on disc two. Alternate ending is awesome btw!

Split Second is an absolutely batshit crazy movie where Rutger Hauer chases a Venom-looking demon through a water drenched hellscape. It's not exactly...good but it's a wild time. It's a mish mash of just about every adult eighties genre put together.

Fantastic transfer on Split Second. Really does justice to the film’s visual style, with all its colour and atmosphere, encompassing much in the way of indirect lighting and pulsing lights, and showing off some vivid art direction.

Surprised revisiting how good this film looks. I still enjoy the humour, commitment to comic book mayhem and restless camera movement. A true comic book on film, this one. Hauer was really funny and I like how the film relishes its own absurdity.

Indeed, very endearing.

Also i did appreciate how an entire scene used variations on “we need bigger guns.”

What happened to their August release of Don Siegel’s Black Windmill?

Showing as out of stock everywhere.

Was it ever released in the first place?
