Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

That may be the easiest clue Criterion has ever given. Seems like it wouldn't have been too difficult to, say, draw a bunch of people in a crowd forming the shape of a face.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'll be happily and enthusiastically upgrading my serviceable UK Bd Of IWHYH.

It missed the 55th anniversary of the event it depicts by one month, which is a shame as I probably would have been able to pick it up cheaper sooner with the expected February flash sale.

I'll also be up for Detour and possibly Kid Brother and Wanda when the next B&N sale rolls around.

My feelings exactly. My mind was blown the first time I saw Griffith in this.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

DETOUR is a phenomenal piece of work and easily a key film noir experience. I've been hearing strong things about the restoration that's been making the rounds in recent months, so it's nice to see it coming to disc relatively soon. Wish they'd gotten someone to do a commentary for it -- there are plenty of worthwhile candidates -- but the 2004 documentary on Edgar Ulmer they did include is an ok substitute, and actually a bit longer than Detour itself. Can't wait to finally be free of the mostly horrendous home video versions of this we've been stuck with for decades!

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Looking forward to Swing Time-a movie I originally discovered via the Criterion laserdisc 27 years ago.

Looks like Criterion still has no plans to release on UHD-BD.

Where the fuck is Until the End of the World?

Wasn’t that announced three or four years ago?

I think that having a deal with Warner puts some stuff on the back burner.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I finally received my shipping notification for the Bergman set that I purchased during the last B&N sale. It was definitely a bit of a wait, but I'm just relieved it shipped. Anyone else still waiting on one?

No word for me yet - I ordered it on 12/17 and was promised a late February delivery, so I'll be happy whenever it arrives!

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Glad to see the Police Story set has at least a couple of unique features (the Grady Hendrix and Peking Opera pieces). Happy to have that set alongside the UK editions, which (so far, anyway) offer considerably more, including THREE cuts of each film (albeit the HK cut of Part 2 is HD in the Criterion set, SD in the Eureka). Eager to see what else Criterion offers for this pair.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Got my Bergman box today, 6 weeks sooner than promised - very impressive set indeed! I expect to be snowed in this holiday weekend and it'll be a perfect time to dive in!
