Blu is the colour
In a piece of news that has gotten DVD geeks like me all in a tizzy, Criterion has announced that from October they will be producing some of their titles on Blu-Ray. The first batch of releases will be The Third Man, Bottle Rocket, Chungking Express, The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Last Emperor, El Norte, The 400 Blows, Gimme Shelter, The Complete Monterey Pop, Contempt, Walkabout, For All Mankind and The Wages of Fear. As a HUGE Nic Roeg fan, I am particularly excited by the inclusion of two of his titles in the first batch. Plus, Criterion has stated their Blu-Ray releases will be the same price as the standard def editions which is almost too good to be true.
