If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Movies who you think need a criterion release
I try to adhere to the background information regarding what film rights Criterion owns, but fuck it, here's what I want:
Aguirre: The Wrath of God
Lars von Trier's Golden Heart trilogy
John Cassavetes: Five Films
Sydney (Hard Eight)
Also, Blu-ray upgrades of existing titles:
The Passion of Joan of Arc
The Hidden Fortress
Do the Right Thing
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Yeah, that's what I meant, sorry.
The thing with Zodiac was that they stopped printing it because of minimal sales, and it's a damn shame seeing that it's Fincher's best film and one that's pretty much overlooked. I'd still like to see Criterion take a crack at it for those who came into the film late. I mean, Hell, they already have Benjamin Button and The Game...
Also, as much as I respected the rule of the rightsholders in my listings, I really wanted to include Ran as part of the Blu upgrades. Too bad StudioCanal left us with a piece of shit to feast on when it comes to viewing that film.
On a related note, the Playtime Blu is set to go out of print at any moment because of a rights situation with StudioCanal, so you may want to pick that up if you haven't already. Good thing I bought it during the recent Barnes & Noble sale...
As much as it will make some people flip their tables in rage, I wouldn't mind a Criterion version of Inception, if only to see what trippy artwork the folks at CC can make. Of course, that'd never happen due to Warner Bros. being a bunch of dicks about liscensing their films to other companies.
I'm surprised that there was never a Criterion edition of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The Criterion library needs some Sergio Leone and that film seems like a perfect fit. And I'd like an upgrade of the current DVD we have of The Pianist.
I'd love to see 'The Sting' get a criterion release. but as they are an american company I really try not to look at their stuff too much (I have the fear & loathing release) I would love to see the same level of extras on some sort of UK subsiduary firm more if I'm honest
These are some movies that I think deserve the Criterion treatment.
