The Spanish zombie movies [REC] have non-standard characters in the title and I'd like to fix them so they're at least consistent. There are 4 movies in the series. In the DVDP DB the copies I own currently are entitled:

[-REC]
[REC]²
[REC]³: Genesis
[REC]4: Apocalypse

Here is the original ttle


Now, I realize the character set DVD Profiler only supports superscript up to 3, so not much that can be done with the 4. But what about the red dot, which is in all the titles (Record symbol)? I'd like the titles to, be at least consistent when it comes to this. The hyphen in part one makes no sense visiually or logically. My personal preference would be to use an asterix so there is at least emphasis there, so

[*REC]
[*REC]²
[*REC]³: Genesis
[*REC]4: Apocalypse

If not that, I'd like to edit them so at least they're all consistent, so maybe

[REC]
[REC]²
[REC]³: Genesis
[REC]4: Apocalypse

Thoughts?

I believe the dash is only there because someone tried to use a bulletpoint character to represent the red dot, and it has since been changed to a hyphen.

Rules:
- Certain characters will be converted automatically during contribution. e.g. "•" will be converted to "-"

I would be fine with the asterisk.

Makes sense.

I opted to go without the asterisk. Thanks
