Yeah, I don't understand that at all. I haven't seen anybody who is upset about WALL-E being included.That sentence feels like a throwback to 1999 and Criterion's collaboration with Michael Bay.
People can't be more upset about "WALL-E" on Criterion than they were "Armageddon", can they?
Also, most of the Netflix titles Criterion has released are arthouse titles. It's not like Criterion is just pumping out Blu-rays of every Netflix film. Roma, Marriage Story, Irishman and Power of the Dog are all auteur-driven prestige films and Best Picture nominees. I don't see why anyone should be concerned about Criterion allowing those films in. They are a credit to Criterion's catalog, and so will be WALL-E.
