we’ll be releasing Kurosawa’s Yojimbo and Sanjuro
Sweet. I'm in for both of those... and the replacement cases of the first 9 releases, assuming Mulvaney tells me the offer does indeed apply to Canadians as well.

I've never seen Days of Heaven but I have the Criterion DVD. I guess I need to get around to watching it to decide if I want to spring for the Blu-Ray.
Definately in for the Kurosawa's, of course.

That's a question better suited for the Dragon Dynasty thread. It might just happen, since it looks like they're going to start off with 36th Chamber of Shaolin in March.

In for all 4, even Days Of Heaven. Great movie, but I don't like the color timing on the Criterion release. Even if Malick approved it, I think the colors of the old Paramount dvd looked better, more mythical even.

Prices for the replacement cases for Canadians is the same as the US. I just ordered all nine, but they told me Bottle Rocket is currently the only one on back order.

Bigger than Life on Blu?? Great news. I'm pleased to see the extras are different from the BFI disc. Days of Heaven should look wonderful.

I am so pumped about the Kurosawa releases on BD, especially on his birthday. I'll also pick up the Eclipse sets as well.

LionsGate has the rights, so I wouldn't hold your breath.

My thoughts, as well. I've watched my BFI copy six times since acquiring it from someone on the Criterion forum a few months ago, and it's become an absolute favorite. I'm content to wait for a while to get it on Blu-ray (especially since I'm in the process of selling my PS3 and all my BRs) but it's nice to know I'll eventually be looking at a fresh batch of a features when I can afford to be buying movies again some day.

Very nice.

I love that subtitles look so much better on Blu-ray.

What's up with Ché's different aspect ratios for part 1 and part 2? Was that how they were released in the theaters?

You shouldn't have a problem. I imagine there will be some curiosity generated in the original as a result of that dumb movie that's coming out.

Ha, some of my family members were raving about "Nine" over the holidays. I told them to check out the superior 8 1/2 but I doubt they will.

I actually saw Nine today, and I thought it was excellent... to each their own. It was a pleasant surprise.
