Re: Criterion - disc rot/'bronzing'

I guess it's a possibility. I ordered two larger binders today, so I'll transfer everything as soon as they arrive.

Double-checking my entire collection, only two other discs show the same...

Re: Criterion - disc rot/'bronzing'

In paper sleeves, stacked vertically. Probably not the best method, but I live in a smaller apartment overseas, so it's the best I can do. I did wonder if that didn't help things; stacked...

Re: Criterion - disc rot/'bronzing'

Yep. I live overseas, and while I don't mind shipping the defective discs back, it would be nice to have Criterion provide replacements for everything that's effected with one transaction, including...

Re: Criterion - disc rot/'bronzing'

It freaked me out, too! I'd played all the discs in the past with no issues and they certainly never looked like that, so it was something of a shock when I pulled them out of their sleeves to see...

Re: Criterion - disc rot/'bronzing'

I was late to the blu party, so thankfully most of my discs are the later pressings. Of the ones I do own in the 'danger range', my affected discs are:

- Walkabout
- Wages of Fear
- Sanjuro

Re: The Blob (1988) Twilight Time--Where Can I Buy a Copy?

Picked up two copies yesterday, one for myself and one as a gift to someone I know loves the film and is pretty much guaranteed to miss out on the pre-order.

Thanks for the links and reminders,...

Re: 3 new Godzilla Blus -Hedorah, Ebirah and Gigan, summer of 2014

The press release says:


That's a bit ambiguous, but one reading might be they plan to include both the US and Japanese versions . . . or just alternate audio tracks. Fingers crossed it's the...

Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

Agreed on both counts; there's an aggressive, angry tone to a lot of the Rifftrax work as opposed to the sly, wittier tone of my favorite MST3k/CT work. That's not to say they couldn't get punchy at...

Re: Official MST3K / Rifftrax / Cinematic Titanic DVD Thread

Recently, I just missed out on picking up a DVD Cinematic Titanic's Alien Factor on eBay that was listed rather pricey . . . only to have it finally relisted on Amazon! I suppose the Mads taketh...

Great announcement, Shout, but to ask an oft posed question, where's the Beef? :D

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Admittedly, I just box up my cases anymore (don't have the display space since I moved overseas), but I'd agree with everyone else that it'd be nice to have Cronenberg box art that was a bit more...

Hmm, good to know I'm at least eligible! I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what they say.

Re: Breaking Bad -- The Complete Series -- 11/26/13

I was on the fence, but the unboxing convinced me to dive in. Credit to Gilligan for making me laugh with the "coasters" bit!

Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

Same here. It's also a great disc for the commentary which I find much more informative and entertaining compared to the later MGM track.

Re: Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection from Shout! Factory

:thumbsup:

Definitely good know. It was only after I'd submitted the order a chill went down my spine with the thought "Wait, is this just a way to burn off the older uncorrected sets?"

Re: Bruce Lee: The Legacy Collection from Shout! Factory

I decided to bite. 50% is a darn good discount, probably as good as we'd get with a Black Friday deal. At least it's a nice way to space out some of my bigger purchases this year.

Re: Destroy All Monsters & Godzilla v. Megalon - Fall '11

Emphasis on the may; everything about these releases brings two words to mind, one of which is "cluster."

It's great they're saying the issue's been solved, but I'll hang onto my DAM and GvM discs...

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Mar 19, 2013)

Curious to see what's new, but I'm also not so massive a LOTR/Hobbit fan that I can't rent for now and wait for the completely-and-utterly inevitable box set down the road, especially if it means...

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 5 + Series Box Set [Oct. 15]

That's my thinking as well; with nearly a 100% overlap in staff (?), it's hard to see where Rebels will drop every single plot thread and character developed for Clone Wars.

I picked up DVDs for...
