EDIT: NoirFan beat me to it!

I've only seen FALILV (didn't like). I haven't seen any of the others.

Still hoping for a Fanny and Alexander Blu in the near future (next Winter, maybe?).

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I've already got Kes on DVD, so I won't upgrade. Blow Out for sure, and I'll Netflix White Material. Fear and Loathing I've overdosed on, and I'll have to wait and see on Le Cercle Rouge. Saw Sweetie a few years ago, might give it a rental. Nice to save a few $ for once.

Damn fine month. Glad White Material's getting the treatment, and I'm pretty stoked for Kes, Blow Out, and Le Cercle Rouge.

Nice to see that Kes includes Cathy Come Home, in all likelihood 1080i.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I own "Fear & Loathing" on both Blu-ray and Criterion DVD already, but I'll bite on the Criterion Blu-ray I think. I'll probably also buy "Blow Out."

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I assume they'll fix the color problems with Le Cercle Rouge for this release.

I like the Blow-Out cover, even if it only makes me dream of The Conversation.

I hope this is the start of more Denis and Loach from Criterion.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Great news on Blow Out and Le Cercle Rouge. I've bought FALILV more times than I care to think about. I'm good with my HD DVD and CC 2-disc set.
