Baz Luhrmann Red Curtain Trilogy problem...

    Just got through my box set of Luhrmann films, lovingly made and presented, great packaging until...I look at the Strictly Ballroom disc. This has just the usual edition shoved in complete with security label and shrink-wrapping. It is not even the new 'uniform' packaging to match the other two films.
    I'm not amused! Part of the reason for getting the box set was the great uniform packaging of the films and this sticks out like a sore thumb!
    Has anyone else got the set and found this? I got mine from a UK-based online retailer and the discs originate from Canada.
    Is there any way of getting the packaging of Strictly Ballroom 'upgraded'??
    Help welcomed!

    All the sets are like that. SB did not receive a packaging redesign.

    Strange then, as the box set sleeve shows the 3 disc covers and SB definitely matches the other two film sleeves - the cover inside the set is different to the one shown on the box. A shame - but thanks for the response.

    I think that this is because "Strictly Ballroom" was distributed by Miramax, whereas the other two DVDs are Fox titles. I'm even surprised that a box set of these three films was released at all.
