    Alright, so I'm probably gonna shoot myself for not getting this right away but here goes. On ebay there is a sealed copy of Hard Boiled (Criterion), legit seller with an actual picture of it being sealed. I can tell it's not a bootleg. Would you pay $78 shipped for it? Thanks

    I would not, since I'm not very interested in this movie and, although I highly appreciate most of my 100+ Criterions, I'm not concerned with getting a complete "collection". But that might not apply to you. If you're really interested, $78 won't break you, I guess.

    Are you buying it just to have it, or because of the movie on the disc? As Richard says, there is a much better version out there-the Mei Ah version. Anamorphic, great image, great sound. I own it, and love it. And it's available for damn cheap at a many legit places online. I would personally not pay $78 for the Criterion disc.
