    Do you own anything from The Criterion Collection?

    I own the entire Wes Anderson collection as well as “Being John Malkovich.”

    No, but I would love to own The Thin Red Line. That movie is CRIMINALLY underrated, IMO.

    I have a bunch of Criterion DVDs.  I’m curious which ones you feel look particularly well on blu-ray.  Days of Heaven was gorgeous.  A Night to Remember looked perfect in black and white, so crisp and clear, as did Spy Who Came In From the Cold.  I’ve loved the Kurosawas.

    I own a few dozen Criterion Collections with both Blu-ray and DVD.

     

    Nowadays, I will only buy Blu-ray. (This is assuming that a given title is made available in that format.)

     

    The last titles I bought from Criterion are Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970) and Nashville (1975). I purchased them, just after their releae dates, last December. I’m wanting to buy Thief (1981). I intend to buy the Blu-ray of Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975/1979). And, with its scheduled release this August, I believe I will purchase All That Jazz (1979). What may stop me, at that time, is the pricing. (I prefer waiting on the sales.)

     

    I’ve been purchasing titles from Criterion Collection for about ten years. In fact, before becoming conscious of Criterion I did buy the DVD of Cries and Whispers (1972/1973). And I’ve been appreciative of the great work done at Criterion in their quality and selection of titles (which, in many cases, don’t tend to get shown on cable).

    I have a bunch of Criterion DVDs.  I’m curious which ones you feel look particularly well on blu-ray? …

     

    Just to mention one title: Howards End (1992) looks terrific on Blu-ray. Outdoor scenes, with flowers, are vivid. Criterion did a fine job with it. I was so glad I bought that title (which, of course, won Emma Thompson the Oscar for best actress) in the format of Blu-ray. But, surprisingly, I can play a DVD on a Blu-ray player and like the picture a hell of a lot. For example, The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973), which should have garnered Robert Mitchum an Oscar nomination (it was under the direction of Peter Yates), looks terrific with, as another example, early scenes of showing Boston and the area that includes a bank that will become robbed.

     

    It should be noted that it’s becoming common for Criterion Collection to release titles in Dual Format—a Blu-ray and a DVD packaged together.

    Looking forward to Criterion’s upcoming Blu-ray release of Roman Polanski’s film of The Tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare!

    Just got Days of Heaven on blu-ray today from the sale.  It’s exceptionally gorgeous (I saw it originally on DVD which pales significantly to the extreme clarity of the blu-ray).  What I would give to see that movie on 35mm.
