Love the blurb from Malkovich, himself! Can't wait for this one!
haha classic quote from the man himself. I'm in!
I'm in, too!
Am I missing it somewhere? Is there a release date for this?
TITLE: Being John Malkovich (BLU-RAY EDITION) CAT. NO: CC2142BD
SRP: $39.95 PREBOOK: 4/17/12
This is one of my all time favorites. It's one of the only titles I bought on D-VHS (remember that?!?!) I am completely ready for this!
I probably haven't watched this movie in 5 years so it'll be nice to see it again.
Does anybody know whether this will be Region A locked? And, also, are all the Criterion Blu-Rays region locked? I have a brace of them that I'm eyeing with intent!
All of Criterion's Blu-rays are region locked.
Now that they've done Being John Malkovich, they gotta release Adaptation next.
I think the dvd looks terrible so it will be great to see how this looks on Blu-Ray. Ever since I read how Cusack treated The writer/director of Better Off Dead, and One Crazy Summer it has been tough for me to appreciate him in any role though. I haven't seen this film in over 10 years. I hope It is still entertaining to me.
Now available for preorder
I will definitely pick it up once the price comes down.
+1 I was a little surprised to see where the pre-order price is right now.
I'm in for this during the next Barnes & Noble Criterion sale. Terrific film.
Not sure what the price was when the Amazon link first came up but it's at $27.99 now which, while pricey, is still within the norm for Criterion. Remember they don't own the film, nor do they make new films, so this pretty much their only sources of revenue. That's why they tend to be a little more expensive than direct-from-studio releases.
That's the normal price, Carlo, for a Criterion blu on Amazon. And they usually come in at $29.99 or $34.99 @ Best Buy.
I can't remember exactly if that was the pricepoint when we were discussing it above a few weeks ago. It strikes me that it might've been a little higher...maybe $30.99 or something odd like that.
Yeah I figured Mike. I know a few Criterions have been released at a much more appealing $19.99 price point, but I think it was more boutique titles like the Three Outlaw Samurai blu-ray which they obviously don't expect to sell in as much quantity as BJM. Makes sense for them to drop the price on 3OS and keep BJM higher to make some revenue for the company.
Criterion has been consistent with their BD pricing for a few years now:
$29.95 - 1-disc Barebones
$39.95 - 1-disc with Bonus
$49.95 - 2-disc with Bonus
