    Simpsons Season 7 artwork

    Any Canadian who have bought this set, can you provide any info on the bilingual packaging? Is is the same as Season 5 in that it is just a wrap-around piece of paper but is the same English packaging underneath?

    LOTR Slipcase Offer - Any Equivalent Offer for Canadians?

    Greg, I would hope they might make those available to those who purchased the theatrical editions upon release too, though I am not holding out much hope. I also received my EE box late last week; great job by New Line and whomever else had this idea and followed it through; it looks very...

    LOTR Slipcase Offer - Any Equivalent Offer for Canadians?

    I got a letter earlier this week from the fulfillment house (Canada) that I had written the wrong date on the cheque. I had inadvertently post-dated the cheque to December 25, 2005 - I guess they didn't want to wait that long. Hopefully the turnaround on this will still be quick. And to the...

    Predictions on Big Catalogue releases for 2005?

    As am I. I sincerely hope that a Batman SE makes it out this year. Great news on the Hitchcock set also; I've held off on purchasing them because an updated release seemed likely; good to hear that it is.

    LOTR Slipcase Offer - Any Equivalent Offer for Canadians?

    Where did you get yours? There were no offers in my DVD that I purchased indicating that such a case was available. Can you clarify? Thanks in advance.

    More Criterions confirmed - Kurosawa, Antonioni, Powell and more!

    Personally, I'd love to see Criterion release anamorphic re-releases of Brazil, Time Bandits, Armageddon (yeah, yeah), as well as the Kurosawa films (Yojimbo, Sanjuro). Not sure why there would be a re-release of Seven Samurai, unless they are enhancing the release (it's 1.33:1 ratio, so no need...

    Alfred Hitchcock Signature Collection: 9/7!

    For anyone in the Vancouver area who is looking for the keepcase version of NxNW of this boxed set, I picked up my copy at HMV in Guildford Mall (152nd Street and 104th Avenue) in Surrey. They had two sets, both of which were keepcase. I bought one, so there's still one left. Priced at $89, in...

    Alfred Hitchcock Signature Collection: 9/7!

    PeterMano, Which A&B Sound were you at that had the Hitchcock Set with NxNW in the keepcase? I've been wanting to pick that one up for some time, but haven't seen it yet. Can you tell me which one you saw it at? Thanks!

    Alfred Hitchcock Signature Collection: 9/7!

    Sounds good to me - I'll hold off until I hear something confirmed for sure, or see a version of the boxed set without the snapper in stores.

    Alfred Hitchcock Signature Collection: 9/7!

    Any new word on the NxNW keepcase vs. snapper issue? I too am a Canadian who is keen to purchase this set, but the version I found at my local A&B Sound had the snapper case, and it looks completely out of place in what is an otherwise well designed set.

    Things to do in Montreal?

    Montreal casino is not that large; certainly not the 2nd largest in the world. Try Crescent Street any time in the evening. Tons of restaurants, bars, pubs, etc. You can't go wrong there.

    Best Places To Buy DVD's in Vancouver, BC region?

    Future Shop, A&B Sound and HMV in Langley are the best B&M locations near you (also near me). Release days is the best day to get anything at these locations, though HMV has a better selection of back catalogue titles (though their prices are a bit higher - and at Christmas, if you can't find...

    Building A Collection: Essential Criterions & Other Must Have Classics?

    Thanks for the fantastic list! I've bookmarked the list and have quite an extensive wish list now. Next I'll have to find time to watch them all! I would love to pick up Brazil, but the lack of an anamorphic transfer is a non-starter for me. I hope Criterion will revisit the titles they have...

    Building A Collection: Essential Criterions & Other Must Have Classics?

    Hi everyone, I've found myself bored with much of what is currently out from the Hollywood factory and am interested in building up my collection of classic films, starting with the Criterion Collection. So far on the Criterion front, I have the Hitchcock OOP box set, For All Mankind, Tokyo...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: "Planet of the Apes 35th Anniversary Edition" (screenshots)

    Thanks for the information - do you (or anyone else) know what the first nine were? I bought the Alien Quadrilogy, so I have 10-13 (no numbering though).
