I'm with you on that. It would be awesome to have a shelf just for the 330+ Criterion Releases. I need to stop buying half asses films and keep that money for Criterion DVDs.

Great thread, I'm sure the info will be useful to everybody. I'm going to order the Dazed & Confused disc any day now, I've seriously been thinking of getting the Equinox disc too, but I think I can buy other stuff that I'd like more.

Great to see Seven Samurai getting a new and improved release, I'll have to pick that up. Is the new Brazil set the same as the old one or what? Anything new on it? I can't find out, looks about the same, but I haven't been able to buy it yet because it's so expensive. So many once this one comes out I can pick it up.

Looks like Criterion has a new logo too, not sure how I feel about that, the original line Criterion face was nice. Maybe I'm just used to it, as long as the artwork is the same I shouldn't really care.

I'm thinking about picking up some Luis Bu˝uel Criterions too. Or maybe Harakiri. Any opinions on these? I should make that samurai thread I keep putting off, seriously.

I agree. I have quite a few already, but there are so many that I want. The only one I ever saw that I didnt really appreciate was Contempt.

The Dazed & Confused DVD is awesome. Definitely worth the price. As for Equinox, I'm going to give that a rent but there are too many other Criterion titles for me to buy before I buy that.

I can't wait for the Seven Samurai set to come out. I've also heard that Yojimbo & Sanjuro will also be getting the treatment. I've been putting off getting Brazil for the same reason. I almost bought it last week because it was/is $44 on Amazon but then I came across that info. I'll look later to see if it's the same features but you can click on the link in this thread and see if it's listed any different.

I'm not real fond of it but I put it in this thread so I can get used to it.

You definitely should. I can probably find some good links for it too.

You can check out this link that has a listing of all the features on the Brazil re-release, along with the other releases for September.

There is something that I am concerned about though. Ive noticed that some OOP Criterion are coming back into print. What will it do to the value of the films that I own that are OOP? Will they still be worth more because they are first editions? Because, honestly, you get what you pay for (Which is why they are pricey), but, I think of it as an investment everytime I buy one. So far, The 400 Blows and Playtime are coming back into print (I dont own either).
I hope this means Salo and Spinal Tap come back into print, so none of have to pay out the ass for a copy.

They truly are the 'special edition' before that title even existed. I wouldn't mind getting an updated Robocop and maybe a reprint of some John Woo(which I have only because of a trade on here due to its $$$$$)Some ass is trying to sell it on amazon.com all the time for like 250bucks. The Brazil, Fear & Loathing, Insomnia, The Vanishing, and My Own Private Idaho are all grreat..My boss has all the Kurosawa stuff so I ripped some off of him. As much as I love Fincher and Ridley Scott dvds I'm surprised they haven't had at least one release on this label. Peter Jackson is the only guy who puts more on his releases. After watching his Laserdisc version of Bad Taste I truly believe he is one of the sole pioneers of putting extras on his releases. He kindof needs to tone it down a bit these days tho. Also, I can't wait to see what kind of possibilities will open up for HDDVD once they utilize it properly. Entire seasons of shows on one disc...
