Re: Psycho 50th Anniversary BD

I'm tempted to do it today, but I'm in a position such that I will wait for my CC to cycle before I order it.

He probably means the next time he sends in a payment, so there will be a little more money on it.

Statement closes on Amex at the beginning of the month. It doesn't really change what I owe, it just makes me feel better.

I say buy it. It's probably the best Blu-ray disc of the year.

I broke down and ordered this since I can't wait for October. We need more Hitchcock on BD.

In real life, this is a pretty nice cover.
You are correct, strange internet person. The case and the cover on it is a lot better looking when you literally have it.

Also..the BD is......awesomeness.

Re: Psycho 50th Anniversary BD

I can easily wait until next month for this, what I CAN'T wait for is the Psycho Legacy documentary. I love comprehensive documentaries, especially ones that cover films that haven't really been covered before. I can't wait to hear about Psycho's 2, 3 and 4!

LOL! If you think I'm strange, head on over to the forums at blu-ray.com and read the steelbook area. Its my watermark for "anal" and given online forums, that's really saying something!

Definitely much more attractive in person than in the stock photograph.

Re: Psycho 50th Anniversary BD

The artwork isn't hideous but it's about the content not the packaging for me ... so they can't keep their over-priced 'steelcase' editions. IF I were into packaging, the day that I'm looking for covers with circles with the number 15 in it is not upon us.

In ways, I agree. To be fair, I really doubt I would've purchased the exclusive if it hadn't only been .30 more than the regular packaging, which is currently 11.87 (~$20 shipped) at Amazon UK right now.

Re: Psycho 50th Anniversary BD

...and if you're interested in content, the Steelbook is the only version with the 20 page booklet, that is why I got it.
