#342, Six Moral Tales:
Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.
That Rohmer set with those extras (I've never seen the shorts listed and never thought I'd be able to) sounds amazing.
And then you have KICKING AND SCREAMING. Another one I've been waiting for. One of my favorite films of the 90's.
THANK YOU CRITERION!!!!!!
The headline on The Digital Bits that said "Criterion unveils its new look and Hearts of Darkness" made it sound like Criterion was releasing Hearts of Darkness. But it was two seperate stories. Oh well.
So correct me if I'm wrong but the geneology is like this.
1984-1993: Criterion Gatefold
1999-2006: White line
More art. Man, Criterion's really ejaculating it today
I gotta say, I'm obviously still not used to the absence of the line and I'm not sure what I think of the new "file" style, but the SMT boxset looks fucking AMAZING.
My only real gripe with the new look is that by putting the tilted-C logo in the exact same spot on all covers, they end up covering some artwork with it (look at the Six Moral Tales box cover for an example).
I'd almost rather they kept that logo off the front covers - making do with the "file tabs" at the left edge - and just used it at the top of the spine instead...
The new look is fantastic! Looks more literary, which is expected for Criterion.
It'll take some getting used to. Taking a look at the "Seduced and Abandoned" cover, it looked too comic-booky, but that may be due to the cover being drawn by Mike Allred. So I guess "literary" fits it better. In that case, it's not too bad, but as mentioned, it does obstuct the guy's face on the box cover of "Six Moral Tales".
Weird, I thought there'd be more discussion (and hair-pulling)...
Too bad they can't redesign their price struture too...
Than I'd be able to afford every single one of these.
I do like the new redesign.
But I wish they'd release something I'm interested in...for example Alan Rudolph's stunning "Welcome to L.A", "Remember my Name", "Made in Heaven" and "Trouble in Mind".
All American independant classics in my mind.
Nice...Looks great!! That Rohmer set looks Awesome.
Well I guess I'm the party pooper here as I don't dig the new tilted "C" look very much......in time it might grow on me I suppose but for the time being...feh.
What do the spines look like?
Looking at them again, I have to say these are beautiful covers. I'm not one to even care about that sort of thing, yet the Rohmer covers look amazing. Like book covers. I especially like how they aren't using the old LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON cover which totally gave the wrong impression of the film.
And the quotes on the KICKING AND SCREAMING cover, love them.
isn't 7 samurai supposed to be re-released w/newer HD transfer? i have the first copy of the DVD (which is pretty good already).
Not a fan of the new design...the cover of the Rohmer box set looks like the elements were just thrown on without any rhyme or reason....and having the titlted C obscuring the man's face on the upper left corner makes it look very amateurish.
That being said, I'll still buy their stuff, cover design is a minor issue in the scheme of things.
