The Becker response is great stuff. Thanks for sharing.
Amazing response. It also shows that the constant whining that can come from certain factions of the fanbase is not warranted. Constructive criticism is fine, but often it goes beyond that.
I'm always amazed when ANY bitching is directed toward Criterion. So a release gets delayed by a few months. Boo fucking hoo. No other company has done more for world cinema than Criterion, and they deserve steady and ceaseless praise.
Fabulous news concerning Stagecoach; going for the best materials possible, giving it their best shot and loading the release with worthwhile extras. Take your time Criterion - I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
wow that is so cool the response from Criterion. What else could be added to Stagecoach ?
At the very least, the second part of Lindsay Anderson's BBC documentary on Ford. I'll chew my handkerchief if that's not in there...
Has this not been released before ?
No Oscar; the first part was on Criterion's Young Mr Lincoln.
thanks for sharing ccfix =P. i'd like to also add that an obvious response to that would be: why not hire more people to the workflow?
well, they'd need to sell twice to 5x the current quantity/volume to support those efforts, lol. just guestimating . it's all about volume. the fact is, HTF/AVS or any other film enthusiast forums occupy a VERY small % of the large hollywood blockbusters that get released on BD/DVD on a weekly basis. hollywood films are talking 5,10,20 million copies+, often weekly/daily basis. but criterion is lucky to get 1mil for any title, heck i think 500,000 copy is pretty nifty lol.
just a matter of economics =). i'd rather have criterion continue to exist and churn out excellent work instead of them bankrupt and folding and closing completely! and c'mon, you guys have NOTHING TO WATCH??!??!?!? lol
Classic stuff, already own that DVD
DVDBeaver's review/comparison of the blu-ray of "Monsoon Wedding."
Hmmm... More titles to add to my Blockbuster Online queue (w/ potential to own later).
A new cover for "A Christmas Tale" is up on Criterion's site...
Does anyone else think that the Criterion hint from the newsletter today means that Fellini's 8 1/2 is their next Blu-ray release?
A great, great choice if you ask me. You can't go wrong with Fellini, and having him on Blu for Christmas makes me very very happy!
I'm 100% positive it is, though it won't be for Christmas. They've already confirmed on their Facebook page that it's coming in early 2010.

So, it looks like it'll be $45 to have all 9 digipack releases replaced, if one so desires.
Or, if you're yet to buy these titles, someone recently ordered Third Man Blu from Amazon and received it in plastic not digi. Apparently they plan to only replenish Amazon etc's stock once the digipacks sell out, which this might mean Third Man has done.
It makes sense for them to wait for the first run of each title to sell out before changing the cases. When you're filling a niche you gotta earn all you can out of your product.
Hmmm... I'll probably hold off just a bit on replacing my few BD digipacks w/ the new cases. I think I only have like 3 titles so far anyway -- and I'm not 100% set on keeping The Last Emperor either due to the MAR issue. Unless I hear they're gonna stop offering the cases soon, I might as well keep using the digipacks until they wear out significantly or something -- they'd probably just go to waste otherwise.
Thanks for the heads up though, CC.
You dog! You should hold a ritualistic burning of the discs at midnight to cleanse yourself of that MAR'd POS. In your fortunate case, the cardboard packaging should help with the burning process. /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif
