^Playtime has been, and is currently, available separately for a long time.
edit: Oh, it's discontinued? I had no idea... nevermind.

Glad I sold my Tati DVDs last week...for more than the list on the set.

La Dolce Vita for me.

The Tati set is tempting, but I already have Playtime - so I'm going to stick to my "must-have, totally essential only" shopping strategy.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Concerning the Tati box set, what I find interesting is that Trafic, which I believe was one of the Studio Canal titles Criterion lost the rights to, is included. Perhaps we can hope more of the SC titles will be relicensed...

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

The Vanishing is one of my favorite Criterions, so I'm very excited about that upgrade. I've only seen La Dolce Vita once, at least I think so, is that the one where
Spoiler:
they are at a fancy dinner party near the end, walking through old European castles?
I watched it at work, so I didn't get the best viewing experience of it, I'll probably end up picking it up, but I need to get 8 1/2 first.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

That cover for The Vanishing is great.

Really great month, but I'll have to give my old dvds of The Vanishing and F for Fake a spin sometime soon to see if I want to upgrade. The Vanishing had to have been one of the first 3 or 4 Criterions I ever bought and I probably haven't watched it in 9 or 10 years. F for Fake is a one of a kind marvel, but it's not the kind of thing you just throw in on a lazy Friday night at home. Oh, who am I kidding. It's Welles. Of course I'll upgrade. Some day.

La Dolce Vita!

:swoon:

I'm a little confused as to whether Playtime in the Tati box is actually a new transfer, or whether Criterion considers the existing Blu-ray transfer to be the "digital restoration."

I'm pretty sure Playtime will be the new 4k restoration.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Does anyone have any idea if Criterion will be re-releasing Blu-Ray only versions of the titles that were issued as dual-releases?

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Doubt it.

Dunno why they would do that considering the reason for the dual format. It'd be stupid of them to do that.

I'd prefer no DVD with my BD. But the price is the same for us BD people, so whatever.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Actually, they just announced that they are releasing Foreign Correspondent in separate BD and DVD versions, so it's likely they'll do that with more of their dual format editions in the future.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'm not saying it's not goofy, but part of my justification for upgrading to Blus of movies I already own on DVD is that the cases are smaller and take up less room. The dual-releases take away that excuse )

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'm sure that just like with old digipaks being converted to keep cases, whenever Criterion goes back to print on the dual-formats, they will do separate BD and DVD. Like DaveyJoe said, they've already started with Foreign Correspondent.
