Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays

Very nice.

It's too bad Made in USA won't be released on Blu-ray. I like to think they'll release some Godards eventually.

Contempt was one of the films mentioned in Criterion's initial Blu-ray announcement.

Hmmm, never heard of Repulsion. I am in, since I love Polanski.

Wow. That's a bizarre pair of sentences to read together. No offense, but it's a little like reading, "Hmmm, never heard of Jaws. I am in, since I love Spielberg."

I hope Repulsion comes in the clear BD case and not the ultra flimsy cardboard.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays

The planned standardization is proceeding as scheduled. Please outfit yourselves in the gray coveralls you were issued at orientation and form a straight line beginning at Window "C". When it is your turn at the counter, the facilitator will request any non-standard, previously issued packaging materials that you have in your possession, and will exchange them for properly retro-fitted, completely standardized, molded plastic containment vehicles for storing your digital media. That is all.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays

Weirdly enough I've only seen Repulsion on the big screen when it was rereleased like 10 years ago. I'll buy it.

I want all of Krystof Kieslowski's films to get Criterion Blu Ray releases Darn It!!! Anyone know about that - I know that is a pretty random thing to know about :-)

Ahh, thanks!

So, this is going to be the standard, correct? And will the previously released Criterion blus be re-released in such packaging?

If you extrapolate Mr. Cinema's advice to the next logical level (ie. go back and read the thread), you will find answers to this and probably your next questions, as well.

A Blu-ray of Double Life of Veronique would be wonderful, but unfortunately Kino owns the rights to the rest of his films (other than the Three Colors trilogy, which is Miramax), so I wouldn't hold my breath. Their much ballyhooed Wong Kar-Wai Blu-rays seem to have been indefinitely postponed. Also, Kino's track record in general is pretty spotty.
