Why?

Am I the only person who keeps the DVD after I get the blu-ray version?

I mean, I can play the dvd in a bunch more places that I can't play the blu-ray - it's nice to have that option on your favorite films. That, and Criterion always gimps the inserts for the blu-rays for some reason.

re: The Criterion Collection 4K/Blu-ray Discussion and Release Thread

there's a few Criterion blu's reviewed in the latest issue of Widescreen Review and being as critical as they are, their impessions of the discs were disappointing to say the least - I'm not sure what the problem is, if the Criteion transfer is to blame, or if the print original condition failed to impress:

Title / PQ-AQ rating (out of five):

Repulsion: 3/2

Playtime 3.5/2 & 2.5 for the PCM track (this was one bluray I had really hoped Criterion had transferred an actual 65mm print instead a 35 reduction interpositive)

Kagemusha: 3.5/3

Wages of Fear 1.5/1.5

Monsoon Wedding 3/3.5

Howard's End: 4.5/3

Wings of Desire 4/3

A Christmas Tale 5/3.5

Gomorrah: 2.5/2

Gimme Shelter 2/2

Pierrot le fou 4/2

Last Year at Marienbad 3.5/2

I absolutely don't agree with many of those scores. The heavy edge enhancement in 8 1/2 is a definite disappointment, though.

What the hell? Repulsion looks great and I think Gomorrah looks pretty good too. What do they want, Gladiator?

The U.S. release apparently has some aliasing and audio issues on A Matter of Loaf and Death.

WSR's disc reviews have always been based on an "eye candy" and "ear candy" scale. Movies are automatically deducted points for being in black & white, or having mono audio. Any hint of film grain also loses points.

Anyone order a Bottle Rocket replacement case and not get it? Maybe they are out of stock again. I ordered the week before Christmas.

I really hate that side effect of Blu-ray. It's like those guys on HTF that all orgasm over Crank.

Yeah, sloppily standards converted from 1080i50. The UK release is the one to get assuming you are 50hz capable.

I ordered The Third Man and Bottle Rocket replacements on Dec. 13 and sent an email on Dec. 27 with no response. I just chalked it up to holidays. Glad someone got a response.

I got my copy of 8 1/2 today (looks fantastic, by the way), only to find a security sticker on the top of the disc itself. Unfortunately I didn't notice until after I had put it in my PS3 and it started making horrible sounds. It seems to be working fine now, thankfully, but how does something like that even happen?

Using the same masters as for broadcast overseas, I'd assume. I seem to remember hearing that's why some of Alliance's Canadian releases are 1080i too.
