    Custom Cover Blu-Ray Custom Cover art thread

    I got rid of the titles on the front covers. I did try the font you suggested but I preferred the basic font for the minimalist look I was going for. Trying my hand at some custom covers (or should I say fumbling my way through) gives me a greater appreciation for the people who do this well...

    Thanks Fritz ! Coming from a master like you, the words of encouragement mean a lot to me. I will try to incorporate the changes you suggested. -D

    Announcing the Cohen Film Collection of Restored Cinematic Classics

    Kino was just about done releasing their Keaton titles on Blu (with the standalone College coming out in March) and now these titles may be released again by Cohen ? I would definitely buy them again if these titles underwent some Criterion-quality digital clean-up but that seems unlikely. -D

    Custom Cover Blu-Ray Custom Cover art thread

    I was hoping someone would make covers to house all of Kino's individual Buster Keaton releases in a single box similar to the one they released at the end of last year. I didn't find any custom covers on the web and decided to try making my own covers. Granted they are amateurish (my photo...

    TCM Dark Crimes: The Glass Key, Phantom Lady and The Blue Dahlia

    The Blue Dahlia and The Glass Key are among last few titles from my original wishlist (made over a decade ago) to finally make it to DVD. I can't believe it took almost 15 years since the advent of the DVD format for these to see the light of day (while a lot of obscure stuff has made it not...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Buster Keaton Collection -- in Blu-ray

    ImportCDs had this for $143 during their 10% off sale. At that price I took the plunge although I already had quite a few (but not all) of the individual releases. It is nice to be able to have all the titles in one compact set (when I sell the individual titles I may end up losing quite a bit...

    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    For those curious about the eventual standalone release of College, here are some details about the features as well as the cover art Blu-ray Features • Audio commentary by film historian Rob Farr, founder of Slapsticon • Visual essay on the film's locations • "The Scribe," a 1966 industrial...

    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    Seems to be the thicker Vortex variety of the 3-disc/4-disc case (that Sony uses on the Breaking Bad sets). But I definitely prefer this to 14 slimcases or some kind of monstrosity (just my opinion of course) like the Universal Hitchcock set. ImportCDs has it for under $145 shipped (they have...

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Amazon has Series 6 for $23.99. For those who have been waiting for the price drop, this is your chance. Series 6 may be the last release for a while since apparently A&E still holds the rights to Series 7-10. Acorn is negotiating with them but who knows how long it will take for a deal to be...

    The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray December 4th

    I just want a no-frills Blu-ray edition (don't need DVD, UV, etc). I don't recall the release pattern for the earlier films in the trilogy but I wonder when a regular Blu-ray edition will be available for the typical $20 MSRP (maybe as a store exclusive) ? -D

    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    I don't know of any boxsets that have included (what would have to be a minimum of) 12-13 standard-sized Blu-ray cases in a slipbox (that would make for a very unwieldy package) which leads me to wonder what kind of packaging Kino is planning to use for this set. Will they go for slimcases (like...

    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    Yes, there is no indication that College will remain exclusive for long. It is just annoying for those who bought all the titles one at a time to have spent more and to still have to wait longer to complete their collection. Also you have to wonder how a lower-tier title like College could...

    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    We all knew this was coming - Kino finally collects all their Buster Keaton Ultimate Edition releases into one 15-disc boxset (release date 12/11). The MSRP ($299.99) is significantly less than that of the individual releases put together. If you had been buying the individual releases all along...

    USHE Announcement: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-ray)

    Yes, I should have said The Birds was never released as a single with the improved transfer from the "velvet" box set. The only way to get that improved transfer was to buy the entire boxset. -D

    USHE Announcement: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-ray)

    I think the single releases are not a matter of if but when. In all the examples above the movies belong to a trilogy or series and it is likely that there are more people interested in getting the entire sets than ones interested in singles (it probably makes more economic sense to get the set...

    USHE Announcement: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-ray)

    Any news regarding the individual releases ? I am not interested in the 6 post-Psycho titles and have already have Psycho and NxNW. It is a great relief that the 7 new titles I am interested in turned out just fine (according to Nick). Now I wonder how long Universal will make me wait for the...

    USHE Announcement: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-ray)

    I sold my "velvet" DVD box too but I was leaning towards waiting for the individual releases anyway (that way I could pick up just the 6-7 titles I really want and avoid having to rebuy Psycho and NxNW). You are right that the individual releases are inevitable but it just remains to be seen how...

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Series 6 is $44.99 on Amazon but B&N now has it for $29.99 (this title is included in their 40% off Blu-Ray sale). -D

    Blu-ray Review Umberto D. Blu-ray Review

    Thanks Matt ! This is one of my all-time favorites but as tempting as it is to upgrade from my DVD to the new BluRay I would rather spend the money on something I don't already have (and there is definitely no shortage of other stuff I am interested in getting). -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Jeff, If you are talking only about the Blu ray releases prior to Series 1-6, there is Movie Collection 6 and Murder on the Orient Express (released separately). The 4 episodes contained in these will eventually be released as Series 12. -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Just a FYI for those who have not picked up Series 1-5 yet. They are on sale at Amazon (52% off). Series 6 which just came out doesn't have much of a discount unfortunately. -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Thanks Matt ! If you didn't even notice it, then it may not be as bad as the other review makes it out to be. I will find out for myself next week. -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 6 Blu-ray Review

    Thanks Matt ! Did you notice the issue that was mentioned in the Blu-ray.com review ? A section of Murder on the Links is apparently taken from a much inferior source. I wonder how glaring the difference in quality is compared to the rest of the episode. My copy should arrive next week and so I...

    Blu-ray Review Breaking Bad The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray Review

    Has Sony acknowledged the problem with the subtitles that don't come on automatically (for Spanish dialogue) ? Just wondering if they will quietly fix the problem or just ignore it ? I know the workaround is simple but I would prefer to hold off on buying the set until the problem is fixed. -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 5 Blu-ray Review

    I have my copy on it's way but I would still like to read your comments on the problems you see with the various episodes. I seriously hope this is not a result of Acorn cutting corners in some way (after their consistently good run of the previous 5 series). -D

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 5 Blu-ray Review

    I am guessing Matt is still waiting for his review copy of Series 6. The retailer I ordered this from usually ships a few weeks in advance of the release date but not this time. The release is a little over a week away and there seem to be no reviews online. -D

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Gentlemen Prefer Blondes -- in Blu-ray

    That EPK document does list GPB but doesn't specify if the work was done for the new Blu-ray release (or simply the original DVD release). If it does indeed include only current and upcoming Blu-Ray releases then a lot of Blu-Rays I am waiting for, should be on their way soon (including titles...

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 5 Blu-ray Review

    If I had to guess the Early Cases set will just be the 6 individual releases packaged together with some kind of cardboard slipcase. In that case there would be no shelf space savings. -D

    Blu-ray Review Forever Marilyn Blu-ray Review

    Fox may have screwed up on the packaging for the boxset but they should be commended for giving people the option to buy individual titles in standard blu-ray packaging. I hate it when studios don't give you that choice and expect you to buy a large overpriced set just to be able to get some...

    Blu-ray Review Agatha Christie's Poirot: Series 5 Blu-ray Review

    The Early Cases set is available for pre-order on Amazon and other sites. Seems like a good deal for those holding off on getting the individual series sets. -D
