This is the best news of the day, the week, and possibly the month.  I was all excited about Moulin Rouge! and Last of the Mohicans, and then I see this.

The best Blu news day (besides hearing about The New World) ever :)

I couldn't be more excited about this news.
Hey buddy...did you just see a real bright light?

 I had hoped for, but not really believed, that this movie would get the Criterion treatment. Now it can't go wrong, one just has to ... wait. 
Waiting impatiently for Sir Ridley Scotts Prometheus!

Absolutely overjoyed that CRITERION is release the Thin Red Line!

This film, one of my favorites, will get the treatment it deserves.

Isn't this the first title Fox has licensed to Criterion? Is this the beginning of another beautiful friendship?

Here is a list of 20th Century Fox films that Criterion has released:
220 Naked Lunch

230 3 Women
235 The Leopard
267 Kagemusha
273 Thieves Highway
274 Night and the City

It would also be nice to see a legitimate restoration and release of the 1964 version of THE THIN RED LINE.

Wow,  I can't wait!  I always change my mind about whether this or Days Of Heaven is my favorite Malick film.  To have both of them on blu-ray from Criterion is a godsend.
