    A new year's gift from the CC, clues as to what to expect this year.

    I always like to keep my picture speculation to myself, at least for awhile

    I'm thinking the samurai are from "Three Outlaw Samurai", though.

    I can't wait for La Jetee/Sans Soleil in Feb, my copy of La Jetee has seen better times

    Edit: Also, I believe these are meant more as a "what they're working on" than what's coming out... I seem to remember a "Life Aquatic..." picture and a "Wild Strawberries" picture in last year's

    They had a picture on Y Tu Mama Tambien for last year but didn't come out in 2011. They better get it right for this year. I heard Weekend by Jean-Luc Godard is going to come out along with a rumor for David Fincher's The Game. I really hope they release Breaking the Waves on Criterion as well.

    The Iceberg is clearly A Night To Remember, and all the cars are Traffic. I'm hoping that the marionette is Being John Malkovich, and I think it'd be pretty neat to see the Coney Island sign being the original theatrical release of The Warriors.

    Eh, I'll take a stab: Shallow Grave, Quadrophenia, Blow-Up and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.

    My Collection

    Good guesses so far for the New Year's doodle. The only thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is the sign with the mouth eating the leg---it's definitely EATING RAOUL. I'm pretty excited for A Night to Remember and Being John Malkovich (if that is indeed what the marionette represents).



    I've been pathetically holding out for a Criterion release of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover ever since rumors started circulating a couple of years ago. That film was MADE for the CC treatment.

    I do love the fake Criterion stuff. Yet, nothing was as good as the fake one for C.H.U.D. that the company actually made as a fake. Still, that would've been a hell of a release.

    The Criterion Collection By The Numbers

    People are freaking out over the fact that the "pop-up" Gojira in CC's Godzilla blu-ray resembles the 2002 "Millennium" version more than the original 1954 version. I personally could care less about that... that packaging needs some work

    V Oh well, this is by no means as big of a deal as the aspect ratio "decision" for 'The Last Emperor'. I've personally been waiting for a Criterion Collection release of Godzilla since the laserdisc days (when they were supposed to do a box-set). Less than 2 weeks now...

    ^ It doesn't "resemble" it it is a screenshot from a different movie.

    Though I don't think this is any worse than having the Ninja Turtle costumes from the third movie as the cover art for the first movie.

    That thing is at least somewhat off, since kurosawa has more like 28 or 29 films i have them all and at least 5 of them arent available on criterion. So they are either counting box sets and blurays as seperate entities or they are just co.pletely making shit up...

    Just picked up Godzilla. Probably the coolest Criterion packaging yet, in my opinion.



    It's a little pop-up Godzilla!

    People still want the Criterion edition because it's Criterion and because of the supplements.
    Yeah.. Because Criterion offers more features other than its quality..
    Even though it has Blue ray release it is still good to have a Criterion Copy..

    Beginning at noon on Valentine's day all in stock DVD's and Blu-rays will be 50% off on the Criterion website. Plus if you created a My Criterion account and made a wish list you'll receive a $10 credit toward your order.

    Had tons of trouble getting the order finalized but I finally got through, and picked up Hunger, Traffic, and Tiny Furniture.

    BLOW OUT is one of my favourite Criterion releases.

    DePalma is so well represented on blu - it would be a dream to get BODY DOUBLE on blu soon as well.

    Have you seen Jigoku?

    I was able to see it last year, its an extremely eerie film.

    I'll try to post a top 5 of what I have
    and what I'd like to have later. Also I picked up Godzilla
    during the sale last week, and watched it last night.
    That was probably the first time I've seen it in a decade, childhood memories everywhere.

    June's Lineup is ridiculous. Probably the best lineup of the year, in my opinion.

    The Gold Rush
    Shallow Grave
    Gray's Anatomy
    And Everything Is Going Fine
    The 39 Steps
    The Samurai Trilogy

    REALLY excited for The Gold Rush. I'm hoping they bring City Lights out by the end of the year, as well. Also pretty unexpected to see the Danny Boyle flick. I dig it.

    I'm more excited about Shallow Grave and the two Soderbergh/Spalding Gray films along with The Gold Rush. I'm still waiting word about the possible Criterion releases for Y Tu Mama Tambien and Breaking the Waves.
