Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Yeah, I don't get FWWM at all here

I'm also confused about Mad, Mad World rerelease. Is it just the same release again with the DVDs removed (it was originally released during the dual format era), or is there something new about this release (more footage found?).

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

^ Probably just without the DVDs. They've done that a few times now, I think.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'm crossing my fingers so hard that this Barry Lyndon release will be from a new 4K master.

This will make them some money in the wake of Twin Peaks return to television. Remember, they put out Armageddon.

Agreed on both, Barry Lyndon is a must have but I see no reason for FWWM. The full Twin Peaks set has the film with terrific A/V plus all the deleted scenes, it's not like Lynch is suddenly going to do a commentary.

The Criterion release will be the director-approved 'no chapter stops' version.

Just for fun- watch it on your cell phone!

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Are all of the special features and specs from the Fire Walk With Me blu-ray the same as the release that was part of the Twin Peaks complete set a couple years ago? It seems to have the same 90 minutes of deleted scenes supervised by Lynch and cats interviews. The question is whether the 4k scan is new to Criterion, or the same as the one on the previous blu-ray included on the complete tv series blu-ray set.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I suspect it's the same transfer. This just looks like a standalone release of the box set disc but with a Criterion menu.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Yup. It seems like they are just selling it for people who want to buy it individually. Though I would assume anyone who wanted it, already has it with the box set. You're essentially just paying for the Criterion label...

It says "New" interview with Sheryl Lee, so...there's that.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Glad they're still getting license deals with the studios, but still disappointed they're doing titles that already have decent releases.

So Personal Shopper is the third Criterion release starring Kristen Stewart. Not something I expected.

I think I asked before but didn't get a response... any word if Criterion will be releasing anything on UHD-BD? Or is that too much of a niche within a niche within a niche?

The official word is "no plans at this time". It took Criterion two and a half years after Blu-ray's launch to put out their first BDs (when home video was in much better shape as well!), so if they ever release a UHD BD, I'd be surprised if it were any time soon.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Barry Lyndon is LITERALLY my most wanted Criterion title. Maybe next we'll get Lolita, the other Warner/Kubrick title that never had a SE.

Count me as another one who's puzzled at Fire. Are there actually people who want the movie, but won't buy the series? How about The Elephant Man, or Wild at Heart, or The Straight Story, or Lost Highway, or INLAND EMPIRE? None of those are even on BD yet(at least in the US).

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Yeah FWWM is a head scratcher. David Lynch was a notoriously hard get for Criterion, as far as participating with them for the Eraserhead and Mulholland Drive releases, could FWWM be some sort of favor or request for/from David Lynch? Does Lynch maybe have some kind of vested interest in the release that isn't known? I'm baffled. It'll be the easiest 'pass' in Criterion history for me.

Stoked for Barry Lyndon though.

Also, I'm interested in seeing "The Lure". Never even heard of it before today.

I never watched the Special Features. Do the cats meow anything insightful?

Yeah, I read up and saw screen caps of The Lure and color me curious -- will probably blind buy it.

They are most likely going to sit out as long as HDR remains, how shall I say, "not figured out" from the various versions to the calibration nightmares currently presented.

That plus I can imagine they are hesitant even using HDR, as it will no doubt create divide among film purists. I wouldn't mind seeing Criterion just stick to 4K and expanded color and dropping it altogether unless a director asks otherwise.

I personally can't see myself buying many Criterion titles over again though. This would be the third time for me and it's just too expensive.

You can rent it on Amazon Digitally cheaply if you want to check it out before you buy it.

I personally loved the film.

I just hope that Criterion DOES NOT consult with Leon Vitali about any aspect of the video transfer, especially the aspect ratio.

Wild at Heart was released by Twilight Time a few years ago. Currently out of print, though.
