I think it's a case inside a hollowed out digipak with a sleeve on it.

I think there has been way too much debate about the way Criterion packages their discs.

Yeah I can live with it though I did spend $15 replacing the digipacks I had so I'm part of the problem I guess.

I kind of agree with the one-sided nature of the overall thread discussion being the packaging, one would think that there could be a dedicated 'Criterion's Packaging - ain't it a bitch' thread.

There are FIVE threads devoted to Criterion packaging and cover art here.

so maybe a moderator needs to do some editing and move a chunk of 'packaging' posts to one of the five threads - ya think?

That would be a pretty good trick for our mods to move posts to another site altogether.

I already have the R2 MGM disc, so will probably pass.

*sigh*

Just recieved my first Criterion blu ray in the mail from Amazon, Bottle Rocket. However, the center hub was completely shattered and thus no way to hold the disc at all. Is this common with Criterion blus?

I would put it in a normal blu ray case since I have an abundance of blank cases, but the artwork is too big to fit.

Oh well, off to Amazon for a return.

If you contact Criterion and explain the situation, they'll almost assuredly send you a replacement case.

Thanks for the tip. I was reading earlier in the thread for people sending $5 for replacement cases via paypal. Is that just for blank cases, or a different style case all together?

I jumped the gun and already request a return from Amazon, so now I have to go through with it or I get charged another $24

Free of charge, of course. Same thing with missing booklets.

Though I would point out that Amazon has most of the older Criterion blu-rays back down into $23.99 and $24.99 range. Not quite B&N sale pricing but it seems like a long time since Amazon had to be price competitive on Criterion titles.

I get them for almost half that price from B&N, so I'm not sure how the pricing is competitive.

Comic book versions of their covers is my guess.
