So what do you think? Get the Dazed & Confused Criterion now or wait for the eventual BR version?

Link? I did a few searches but wasn't able to get anything to come up, and the crawler I wrote that looks for new Blu-ray titles on Amazon didn't turn up anything either.

good job Amazon! That should help sell more copies.

The Third Man BD is $7 cheaper than the DVD. I'm assuming the others are the same.

Please note that there's another listing for Bottle Rocket at Amazon for $27.99. Here's the link to this listing-

http://www.amazon.com/Bottle-Rocket/...9697736&sr=1-8


The first listing that I posted came from DVD Price Search. Hopefully Amazon will clear up the confusion soon so we'll know for sure that we're getting the BD.

Yeah, guys, just wait until this is cleared up. It's not like you're getting them any sooner if you order now.

Wait for the eventual Universal Blu-ray. The HD-DVD is great.

Get the DVD in November during the sale. Criterions always have high resale value, so you'll be able to unload it for a decent chunk of change when and if a Blu-ray edition is released.

Thanks for the links.

Preordered:
The Third Man
Chungking Express
Bottle Rocket
The Last Emperor

Gonna wait a bit and see the reviews for The Man Who Fell To Earth before upgrading my relatively recently purchased CC DVD set. Love that movie though, will most probably end up getting the BD at some point knowing myself.

I may just do that. Is there any indication of what previously released titles Criterion will consider for Blu treatment? I really like the Criterion bundle, but I would rather have a bare-bones 1080p version.

NoirFan is talking about the 20% off sale Deep Discount has twice a year. The next one should be in November.

All of the catalog titles Universal has released, announced, and hinted at (in that brochure) for BD are titles already released on HD DVD. That may mean it won't be too long, but I wonder how well DAC actually sold.

You could always get both the Criterion DVD for the extras and the eventual Universal BD (or even the HD DVD for cheap if you have a player). If Criterion releases one, it may look better though; I don't know. Personally though, I hope Criterion focuses on titles not available on BD at all, not counting imports.

Thanks! Sounds like a good opportunity to pick up my favorite movie in a sweet bundle.

I actually wouldn't mind having a couple different copies of D&C if Criterion isn't planning a BR release.
