Ian Dingman's cover work for Wes Anderson keeps in the style of his Bottle Rocket cover and Wes' brothers work for The Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic and Rushmore.

I have to admit i'm not the greatest fan of The Darjeeling Limited, though i only saw it once in theaters. It's probably my least favorite pictures from Wes. I may give it a rental when the criterion collection comes out though.

A BLU-RAY BOX SET OF BOB RAFLESON/BERT SCHNIEDER 70's CLASSICS including Five Easy Pieces/ Head/ King of Marvin Gardens/ The Last Picture Show/ Easy Rider/ A Safe Place/ Drive
Refleson pretty much invented the Monkee's show. That, and they are on a bike. Very exited to see it confirmed.

As much as I appreciate the BBS box, I really only want "Drive He Said" and "A Safe Place" out of it, since I already have all the other titles (as well as "Easy Rider" on Blu-ray). : ?

Yeah, it's been official that it was coming for a few months now. It just didn't have a release date until now.

I'm not sure if there's one on the sony Blu, but Easy Rider comes with a Dennis Hopper commentary. If found at a cheap price, next B&N sale, that alone is worth the whole box (hearing The Monkees be uncomfortable helps too). I also have to imagine Five Easy Pieces will be vastly improved. The extras are definitely the reason for this set.

I guess I'll have to hope someone sells the films individually on eBay or something after they come out.

It's because they want to recognize important flims that don't have a dvd or blue ray, but you will see known movies like Micheal Bay having a Criterion.

^Exactly, they are trying to get great, yet possibly obscure, films more exposure that they might not have otherwise. If it weren't for Criterion, countless wonderful classic and foreign films would not be available on Region 1 DVD. Why would they waste resources releasing mainstream films that already have good DVD releases?

The casual movie fan doesn't cared about these types of films but us that want to see the obscure classics and foreign movies would have to pay tons of money on movies from Amazon overseas. I like it for what I said in my post. It doesn't need to exposure shit like Epic Movie when there more movies out there that deserve it more.

One must wonder why they'd bother?

Not all the time do they releases classic and foreign movies. The Rock and Benjamin Button are the exception not the rule.

^Yep, releases like the Rock and Benjamin Button are most likely to make money for Criterion so they can continue focusing on obscure titles that won't sell as well.

...Or they just consider them important cinematic achievements that the production companies were probably too cheap to invest in a special 2-disc DVD set for. Also an option.

The special features for Ben Button were all produced by Fincher months before criterion was involved. Similarly the Bay (and some of Anderson's) movies have been handled by Disney (though I think crit produced their content). So in short, money speaks. Why are we talking about this though? We have a two disc Blu of Night of the Hunter to hoot and holler about.

I like the Darjeeling Limited artwork, don't see that many covers that are actually handddrawn (god bless you Drew Struzan.) I have yet to see the movie but will check out because of the Criterion treatment. Hoping we receive a Fantastic Mr. Fox Criterion with hand drawn artwork.

Say, this might be a really stupid question to a very obvious answer...but what is "The BBS Story"? I've heard of the films in the set, but what's the "BBS" connection all about?

Taken from the Criterion page:
Quote:
SYNOPSIS: Like the rest of America, Hollywood was ripe for revolution in the late sixties. Cinema attendance was down; what had once worked seemed broken. Enter Bob Rafelson, Bert Schneider, and Steve Blauner, who knew that what Hollywood needed was new audiences—namely, young people—and that meant cultivating new talent and new ideas. Fueled by money from their invention of the superstar TV pop group the Monkees, they set off on a film-industry journey that would lead them to form BBS Productions, a company that was also a community. The innovative films produced by this team between 1968 and 1972 are collected in this box set—works that now range from the iconic (Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Picture Show) to the acclaimed (The King of Marvin Gardens) to the obscure (Head; Drive, He Said; A Safe Place), all created within the studio system but lifted right out of the countercultural id.

Honestly, I liked both "As Good As It Gets" and "Spanglish" better. But it's definitely better than "Terms of Endearment" or "I'll Do Anything."

Pretty underwhelming month, as I already have the previous editions of all the new releases... although that Basil Dearden set does look intriguing.

Looks like they're done with releasing anything just in standard DVD format, and all new releases are getting a BluRay release. Except for Eclipse of course, those are still standard format.

Got it right here from Netflix.

So I see the B&N Criterion sale is in full swing. The Human Condition is finally down to a halfway manageable price, but my fear is that once I get it, they'll immediately announce a Blu edition. Before I take the plunge, has anyone heard any truth to this, or should I be good to go?

Everything that is SD only and was produced after Bottle rocket won't go to Blu. Additionally Criterion have said that it is not cost effective for stuff like Human Condition and the War Trilogy to go to Blu.
