Where'd you hear that?
edit: Oh, Criterion Cast. He doesn't actually have any evidence to suggest that. Just random hunches.

It was leaked over on the BR forum via Criterioncast.

That BBS set looks amazing, but I'll wait till I can get it in the next Criterion B&N sale (it's not eligible this go-around).

I'm not quite sure how a guess can be leaked.

Oh! Excuse my poor choice of words.

I said it was a rumor.

The Royal Tenenbaums, Harakiri, and The Double Life of Veronique are all rumored for February. You heard it here first. Spread the word.

As much as I'm trying to resist upgrading my entire DVD library, I think those would all be must-buys for me - especially if there are any added supplements.

Depends, since it's never the same time any given week. Usually late-afternoon on the east coast, though.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

While I can't say I'm too excited about any of those particular titles, it sure is nice to see six Blu-rays on the docket for a single month. Criterion is kicking so much ass on BD!

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Oh dear. Looks like I'll be picking these up;
Still Walking
Fish Tank
Sweet Smell of Success
Amarcord

Uncertain on Senso and The Double Life of Véronique.

I'm going to be in serious trouble next Criterion sale.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

It'll depend on the extras, but I'm probably going to stick with my Artificial Eye Blu-rays of The Double Life of Veronique and Fish Tank. Was hoping Criterion might pair Andrea Arnold's Red Road with Fish Tank, too. Oh well.

Extremely stoked about Sweet Smell of Success, though.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Sweet Smell of Success looks like it will be up my alley, and I will consider Fish Tank and The Double Life of Veronique.

Still, if there aren't going to be new extras, Criterion should just start a whole separate schedule of Blu-Ray upgrades; I was hoping for an official Fear and Loathing announcement or Tenenbaums. But I'd upgrade all of my Criterions to Blu if they offered them.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Will definitely be getting Kore-eda's Still Walking.

Hoping Criterion would work to get this director's past works into their releases as well like Maborshi, After Life & Nobody Knows.

Wow, Senso is SPECTACULAR news! Rumored for a long while, I was starting to give up hope. I'm glad I didn't buy the UK Veronique Blu-ray. Amarcord and Sweet Smell are welcome additions as well.

Even though I have not once felt compelled to re-watch my DVD of Nobody Knows in the years I've owned it thanks to how crushingly sad it is, I would buy a Criterion Blu-Ray, just because it's so good.

Damn, was hoping the Harakiri and Royal Tenenbaums rumor would be true.

I made all those up just to try to prove a point, but it's pretty sweet that I was actually right about one of them. Guess I'll have to get rid of my Veronique and Fish Tank imports now
