Ghost World! Nice! Love this movie. I got the region free German blu-ray release. Great PQ and AQ on it (althought there is a slight audio delay in the last half of the film but it's not extremely noticeable). Some older interviews with the cast as well are on the disc. If I can find this Criterion release for around $20 Cdn I'll grab it...but who am I kidding; Criterion for less than $20?!

The last time I revisited 'Ghost World', I felt I'd outgrown it. I related to it immensely when I was the age of the main characters, but when I watched it again a few years ago, I found their snarky behaviour annoying me. It's a great film and I hope there will come a time when I can get into again but it's just not now.

Yep, me neither. Just a bunch of weird stuff to me. Not as enthusiastic about standard Blu-ray anymore either. I wonder what their excuse is for not doing any 4K stuff. Still waiting for HD DVD to die?

Because it's still a small niche market

Ghost World is an absolute - Othello only because I've never seen it all the way - but it's gorgeous. One of the Bat-$#!& craziest shoots apparently as well so I'm curious what the supplemental package has to cover on that front.

Interested in the World Cinema Project Vol 2. The first set is a cultural gold mine and this will probably be the same. Of course, I will wait for a 50% off sale.
