I've had it happen before with dvd. My friend just had it happen with a copy of Oceans 13 last week.

What do you mean a security sticker on the disc?

You know those plastic security tags stores put on DVDs and CDs? One of those was stuck on the face of the disc.

I was paying attention to something else when I opened up the case and popped it in the player.

You mean when you were peeling the ones off the case something happened and it got caught on the disc?

No, it came stuck on the disc. I didn't notice it was on the disc because when I opened the wrapping and the case I wasn't paying much attention.

I think TheDuke is referring to the security stickers that come on the case to prevent people from opening the case (that also says the movie title). I think Suprmallet is referring to the stickers that are many 0.33" x 1", and that have a magnet or a little electronics in them. That sucks, Suprmallet. Glad everything seems to be working ok.

Oddly enough, my BD of Kagemusha had the same issue when I bought it back during the last Barnes and Noble Criterion sale. Thankfully, I caught the sticker before I put it into the player and was able to remove it without any damage. I wonder if they have some glitches at the pressing plant?

A member over on blu-ray.com received all 9 replacement cases today and has posted a couple of pictures for those that are interested.

So true! I would think that Walkabout would be an eye popper; I kind of wish they had never mentioned it way back in the early announcement of upcoming Criterion blu disks, makes the waiting seem much longer. I think Walkabout is now the only one unreleased from that batch.

Yeah, the initial list was:

The Third Man
Bottle Rocket
Chungking Express
The Man Who Fell to Earth
The Last Emperor
El Norte
The 400 Blows
Gimme Shelter
The Complete Monterey Pop
Contempt
Walkabout
For All Mankind
The Wages of Fear
Contempt is coming -- just not from Criterion -- and Walkabout remains in limbo.

Yeah, it's actually not the waiting that bothers me as much as the anxiety born of the Ran and The Third Man debacles.

They did confirm that it's still coming on their Facebook page, but no concrete details were given. Interestingly, Walkabout is available as a Netflix Instant Streaming film right now. Haven't seen the quality -- or whether it's even anamorphic -- but it's there.

I bet Criterion lost the rights, like 'Ran'

I hope Criterion continues to pick up OOP Fox Lorber releases from director's like Godard and Truffaut. A lot of those films deserve the proper treatment, and on Blu-ray too. I'm especially hoping for more Truffaut though I am incredibly pleased by the news for Vivra sa vie.
