Default Watership Down: Criterion Collection February 24, 2015

http://www.amazon.ca/Criterion-Colle...watership+down



Special Features:
New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray
New interview with director Martin Rosen
New appreciation of the film by director Guillermo del Toro
Picture-in-picture storyboard for the entire film (Blu-ray); four film-to-storyboard scene comparisons (DVD)
Defining a Style, a 2008 featurette about the film’s aesthetic
Trailer
PLUS: An essay by comic book writer Gerard Jones


This is the amazon.ca (Canada) pre-order for it. The US pre-order should be up soon. Only $23.68 CDN for it right now. Great price! I have the German blu-ray of this movie. I'm going to get this one too though for the new features and upgraded PQ/AQ.

I was really hoping for some more Film Noirs. How about Criterions of Naked City, The Third Man, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Asphalt Jungle, Angels with Dirty Faces, Key Largo, and The Big Heat?

Criterion already released The Third Man, but the rights then shifted to Studio Canal, which reissued it (in an inferior transfer). Many of those other titles are owned by Warner Bros., which doesn't like to license its movies out to other labels.

I'm hoping this will lead to a release of The Plague Dogs. It was the follow up to Watership Down. I'm going to day 1 that film, but I would love to see Plague Dogs get an uncensored release in the US.

Then why don't they get off their lazy asses and start releasing the ones they haven't done yet?

Warner Bros. pumps out way more catalog titles on Blu-ray than all the other studios combined. They have a massive library of titles to work their way through. Many of the movies they own require expensive restoration work, and not all of them will generate enough sales to pay for it.
