    Not that a Criterion delay is unbelievably shocking, but noteworthy nontheless. The biggest problems may come up in preorders, where ship times are involved.
    Rebecca from 11-13 to 11-20
    That Obscure Object of Desire from 11-13 to 11-20
    8 1/2 from 11-13 to 11-27
    The Last Wave from 11-13 to 11-27

    Bummer. I had 8 1/2 and Rebecca pre-ordered together. Oh well, another couple of weeks won't kill me and it'll give my credit card time to recover from last month's expenses. [​IMG]

    That extra week for Rebecca successfully bankrupts me...
    Now on November 20th, I have to pick up the five disc Dirty Harry Collection, The Stuntman: Special Edition, and Rebecca...
    Oh well, I guess my friends and family didn't really need Christmas presents... [​IMG]

    This is the risk of tying Criterion preorders to other items. My REBECCA is in a single order (ship together) with WILLY WONKA. So now I have to wait longer for WONKA too.
    Oh well, at least it's only a week (unless they delay it even more.) It's not like I don't have anything else to do.

    I love DVD Empire's pre-order manager. All I have to do is shift the discs to the order for the correct week. [​IMG]
