    If I buy "Bottle Rocket" on Amazon today, will I get the paper case version or the new plastic case?

    I think the only way you're going to get an accurate answer to your question is by talking to someone who has purchased the same title recently from Amazon. Otherwise it's just a guess.

    The real question is why are you thinking about buying it from Amazon ($29.99) at all when we're in the middle of Barnes & Noble's 50% Off Criterion sale?? Buy it from B&N and save yoursefl $10. If you have a B&N store near you, you can save the $10 and make sure you get the case you want.

    Criterion has just announced their November slate, and it looks fantastic!

    New Blu-ray and DVD edition: Jean Renoir's Rules Of The Game (actually "pre-announced" last week)

    Blu-ray upgrade: Ingmar Bergman's Fanny & Alexander (the complete box set)

    New to Criterion: Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colors trilogy (Blue, White, Red) box set and Sidney Lumet's Twelve Angry Men!

    If Barnes & Noble holds to form November will also see the next installment of their semi-annual 50% off Criterion sale. Which is good timing, because I want all of these!

    I would have never thought that 12 Angry Men would be from Criterion

    Thanks - missed that one! Makes the month even better! Hopefully Blu upgrades of The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic are coming in the future as well.

    Twelve Angry Men and Rushmore?
    Is it Christmas already? Well, I suppose with a November release these will be bought for a Christmas present (for myself).

    A Criterion Twelve angry men ????
    The sweet life.
    That is almost as big a shock as when

    I definitely did not see 12 Angry Men coming!! I would have been even more excited if the film had not just received a Special Edition 2 years ago. I know that the commentary absolutely stunk on that version, but I can't remember if any of the other extras are worth keeping or not. I hate keeping 2 versions of a film, but can't stand selling of special features almost as much. What to do??

    I am definitely in for Three Colors and 12 Angry Men, especially if B&N has another sale in November. I may stick with my DVD of Rushmore.

    Who did that commentary and why does it stink? I just saw that 2-disc set in Costco for $6.99 or something ridiculous like that.

    Ugh! I didn't even get around to picking up some 6-8 Criterions I was eyeing (on top of the 8 I did pick up) in the last B&N sale, so now, there are a ton more Criterions to tempt me for the next B&N sale...

    Need to accumulate a ton more rewards points for GCs to help pay for them come November or so...

    Also, sure hope Discover will keep their online cashback bonus at 15% (or better) for B&N when that next sale comes around...

    Yes, I saw it. More racially and ethnically diverse now, but while the cast is superb, I didn't think it had the power of the original film.

    I'm sure it doesn't hold a candle to it.For anyone's resume,that's a damn good start.
    Sidney Lumet had lens schemes so the audience could sense the walls and ceiling bearing down on the characters as the film progresses.
    Is this one a literally a shot-by-shot like Van sant 's Psycho ?

    No, the script is not identical to the Lumet version.

    Who wants to bet Rushmore is going to be all "orange'd-up" for this go around?
