Coraline and Watchmen. Watchmen is way to long, Coraline is definetly demo material. The picture is incredible, you can see every detail.

This shall be mine, but I'm going to wait to order it on Tuesday. Once it's no longer a pre-order, I'll be able to use the Visa link and 20% off coupon to grab it for $16.10 delivered.

Watchmen and Dr. Strangelove Blu-rays came from Amazon today in perfect condition. Hopefully Dr. S will be as good of a blind buy as Coraline and Midnight Express were!

Gotcha, thanks. I'll have to keep that in mind for future orders.

Just ordered Licence to Kill and The Man with the Golden Gun through DVD Planet. I now have all the Bonds currently available on Blu and I'm eagerly awaiting the next batch.

I've always liked the packaging on these Criterion Blu-ray's. To me they look very nice and high end. They make the package feel like art itself, and I then feel like the discs found within are real treasure. I know I am one of the few who feels this way but it is really a shame they aren't printing any more like this anymore. I wish they could print some both ways and give you an option between the packaging choices.

I don't worry too much on packaging, but I think these are a little too flimsy. But the Elite cases are too, as I've encountered too many broken ones. The case with the flap seems to be the most sturdy. I'm sure the new clear cases are as I think they're a tad larger than the standard size.

I agree. I have The Third Man; the packaging is far too flimsy. If it were sturdier, I'd actually like it a lot.
