    Some of us don't have Netflix and have no interest in Netflix. I am a collector. I don't download or stream. For we "old school" types who collect, this is good news. Although I have zero interest in The Irishman (a screener copy I have remains unwatched), I look forward to both Roma and Marriage Story, both of which I've seen theatrically..

    Yeah, I'd imagine that Criterion wants to release The Irishman closer to the holidays (October or November) since it will probably be a big seller for them.

    If Vinegar Syndrome can release a 4K UHD of TAMMY AND THE T-REX, I think it's safe to say Criterion can release some of their titles on UHD. Re: "radio silence", not quite. In the video that was posted on this very forum, the guy from Criterion discusses how they've been preparing HDR grades of some of their 4K masters.

    You already mentioned this upthread, almost word-for-word.

    Excellent news.

    (Next - not Netflix, of course - A Rainy Day in New York?)

    So glad that this is coming to disc and even better that it's coming from Criterion.

    Streaming will always take second place because physical media is total ownership of a movie.

    Well, until the format dies or the disc rots.

    Only if having total ownership of the movies you watch is important to you.

    For most, including a growing number of people here, they are content with the plethora of content they have available to them in this digital age and are allocating any additional money they have to their other interests outside of movie watching.

    In many respects that frame of mind defeats the existence of this entire forum. Why come here at all? People of that mindset can learn all they need to know from reading People magazine or CNET. Enthusiasts or purists, for lack of a better term, generally want something more.

    Well, I feel the same way about Okja.

    So, I was thinking we could start a campaign to make it happen.

    What do you say?

    Like me, who has Netflix AND collects all best picture nominees on Blu.

    I want all the bonus features, the (sometimes) beautiful packaging, and, most importantly, I want to show off my collection!
