Completely agree. I thought releasing it in Nov/Dec would have been great because of the content. Also, I wouldn't even wait for a B&N sale for this one, it would be a day of release purchase despite owning the SD version.

If it's Fear & Loathing it gives hope for a Traffic Blu-ray which I would love to watch.

Yeah...I'll refrain from getting the current BD of Traffic cuz it's not the CC edition. Fucker of a DVD was packed w/ shit.

Well neither Darjeeling or Fantasic Mr Fox was released by Criterion. Were just now getting Darjeeling after it being on DVD for a few years.

So many factors are involved that there is no set number. A film may require extension restoration etc. that can move that number up. Put it this way - with the lack of catalog we currently have on BD, it's safe to assume that previous sales of catalog titles was not enough to get those studios to release more catalog on BD. If they were making a profit, we would see more releases. But with BD prices dropping like a rock mere weeks after release, it's probably tough for them.

I don't know....I'm actually not too disappointed with the amount of catalog that's been released or announced.

It took DVD 10 years to get 100,000 titles out. Blu-ray has only been going for a fraction of that, partly with a format war under way.

Although there are are some color discrepancies comparing the UK MoC disc to the Criterion, the Masters Of Cinema disc was made from an standard def video transfer from back in 2000.

The Criterion comes from the restored print, so I'd go with that as the definitive source.

I know, right?...I don't normally pay attention to the bit rate but when I saw the way that bitch spiked up and stayed rather consistent from that scale. just...fucking wow.

Since I've seen you post the same thoughts over at the review site's forum, how is it that you can be either "unimpressed" or "impressed"?

It's a review for a film... simple as that. Reviews are subjective, correct? Are they not a matter of personal taste? If a reviewer doesn't enjoy the story of a particular film as much as you do, how does that lead to you being "not impressed?"

The review for "House" still received appropriate scores for presentation. I don't think that Dr. Svet's personal view of the film has influenced his scores for the technical aspects, have they?

If you're not particulary happy about one person's opinion on a film, I would suggest you write your own review for the users.

Just saying.
