And as long as Criterion announces The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp and Hua Yeung Nin Wa and Kino announces The Lina Wertmuller Collection, Volume 2, I'll be a satisfied man.

I don't know Kino's release announce days, but here's hoping the early Kubrick set is announced.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

the cover art and order button for Children of Paradise (1945) is gone from Criterion's website, so that seems to be a lock for announcement today (Blu upgrade).

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

The Game, finally.

And, more excitingly for me personally, another Marcel Carne film.

Really excited for "The Game" despite the shitty cover art.

I gasped at The Game. Especially since I wasn't totally sure of what I just saw with that cover art.

Mother of pearl. The Game is finally happening. And I actually like the cover artwork a fair amount, though it's more in concept than overall execution.

Umberto D. and Children of Paradise are most welcome, too.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Not thrilled about anything this month, though I may pick up Umberto D. That cover on The Game is a nice stab at Bass.

Now... c'mon, Kino- smack a homer and bring the runners in!

I am glad that The Game finally go announced so I wouldn't have to read people's posts complaining about it not being announced.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

After having finally seen The Game recently, I'm looking forward to finally owning it.

I'll have to also grab Eating Raoul because I love Paul Bartel.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I will be picking up The Game and Eating Raoul. I'm interested in seeing that alternate ending for The Game and hearing some of the audio commentary.

I might pick up the other Carne film as well.

Just the magnificent Umberto D by itself would have made the month for me...I will be buying all of these!

The alternate ending was one of the few special features on the old DVD. It's nothing much. It's just slightly different editing of the last minute of the movie. It's not like it's an alternate version where he kills himself or anything massivly different.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Those Carne covers are just gorgeous! Nice to see some classics, it seems like it's been a while. I'm in for all except Eating Raoul, which will likely be a download candidate, as Netflix are essentially useless for new Criterions.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I just remembered I picked up Eating Raoul from Big Lots a few years ago - I guess it's about time to actually watch it.

The correct procedure is to briefly lament having bought a title you didn't watch, then sell it back somewhere and upgrade to the BD... that you'll never watch.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I love the cover art for The Game. Glad to see they finally are getting that one out.

Where's Early Kubrick? Don't make me beg.
