Alot of folks at the CC board (myself included) were expecting M in December. Looks to be just as extensive as some of their recent two disc sets.

Its just one more DVD I want more than Star Wars.

I've been waiting for this one for a while after viewing the previous disk and seeing how bad the quality was. Great film.

BTW, I finally figured out what you nickname means after watching Aguirre, Wrath of God last week.

Same here, but being I loathe Star Wars that doesn't mean all that much.

Looking foward to this one a lot.

Is this the first time Criterion has significantly "double released" a title?

Meaning, bringing out a two discer for an already excellent one disc release.

Their first release of M was far from excellent - it was just a port of the laserdisc.

Isn't this the first-time Criterion released a disc in December? I thought they took the month off.

The Catalog number will stay the same

[QUOTE]Is this the first time Criterion has significantly "double released" a title?[?QUOTE]

400 Blows, Beauty and the Beast reissues were much improved.
And they kept the same catalog numbers

Excellent news. I bought M about a year ago, but never got around to watching it. It was still in the shrink wrap and everything, so I returned it for store credit this past weekend.

So I guess there are some advantages to having too many DVDs and not enough time.
