Big month...for me, this is the culmination of a two-year wait for the Walkabout re-release. I'll be getting the BD on day one.

Stagecoach better be an improved transfer.

Others look good although all are just upgrades. Where is Before the Revoltuion?

This could well be their best month ever. High-def debut of Brakhage and even more Brakhage? High-def debut of Walkabout? An Oshima box? Freaking *STAGECOACH* on Blu, and loaded with some of the most delicious looking supplements yet? Wow.

Without question. Definitely getting Stagecoach, M and Walkabout on Blu-ray.

They are using the UCLA restored transfers, which not even Warner got to use in their release. It's one of the best prints ever.

Walkabout artwork IS cool, except for that weird border. What the hell?

Doesn't state whether the new "Walkabout" is anamorphic or not! I would upgrade if it is-

At this point in home media, I seriously doubt Criterion would release "Walkabout" in a non-anamorphic edition.

What a month. I'm going to be broke, due to buying every release on Blu.

I'm pretty sure that when Criterion announces a "New, restored high-definition digital transfer", it's going to be anamorphic. Just a hunch.

You are correct. Contacted Criterion and Walkabout indeed will be an anamorphic transfer

That Oshima is at the top of my most anticipated list. Looks amazing, the Nikkatsu set is one of my favorite box sets ever.

i am counting down the days for 'stagecoach' and 'by Brakhage Vol. 2' May 25th is going to be deadly to my wallet for dvds and blu-rays.
