Re: Criterion BD upgrades over DVD?

I have a great deal of respect for what Gary has done during the years, however, the type of evidence the gentleman above requested is probably not something DVDBeaver could offer. Certainly not in...

Re: Should I worry about Blu-Ray Phasing out?

Aside from The Dark Knight, which convinced many people to adopt Blu-ray, Criterion's output has been one of the main reasons why many have moved to HD. This being said, a large catalog of titles...

The Seventh Seal is a notable upgrade over previous DVD releases (it is a notable upgrade over the current reissue as well).

Re: Will these UK Blu-Rays play on my Region 1 players?

Official announcements do not come from Criterion's site. As I said, obviously you have no way of knowing that.

Re: Criterion joins the Disney bandwagon - Raising prices; now $49.95 MSRP

There is no need to be bitter.

I am unsure where the newsletter came from, as the official PR info Criterion send to different sites did not go out until this morning. As usual, there are no...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Re: Paramount Announces Sapphire Series (BD) -- Braveheart, Gladiator, Forrest Gump
