No, almost never. The ones I have read are hit or miss, sometimes they are well informed and other times they miss the mark.

Re: Booklets in SE/LE Sets

I at least look at them. Given how little printed material is in current releases, what is included should be read.

Re: Booklets in SE/LE Sets

I know that I've looked through a few, which ones I can't really say because my memory isn't what it used to be. I know I read the comic books included with the Maze Runner BDs, and I know I've read through others. The booklets that provide character/actor info, production notes, sometimes I'll glance through them, sometimes I'll actually read through the whole thing (if it's something that interests me). Not always, but sometimes...

Re: Booklets in SE/LE Sets

I don't give much thought to booklets as a rule, but whenever I open a disc that has one, I get a pang of nostalgia for when that was more common. Whenever I sit down to go through all the content of a disc, I'll take the time to read booklets. Usually, I go through them after watching all the disc content. I'm glad Criterion put their essays online because on at least one occasion that I can't recall clearly just now, I had a difficult time reading the font they used for a booklet and ended up reading the online version.

Re: Booklets in SE/LE Sets

Booklets are often more interesting for me on genres I know little about.
