Default Warner plans "Book"-like Blu-ray Special Releases

Warner is planning to add a collectible spin to high-def packaging, by releasing a number of "Book"-like Blu-ray releases in the coming year. The first of these will be March 25th's 'Bonnie & Clyde' with 'Dirty Harry' and others to follow.

If you have any thoughts on this, feel free to discuss them here.

I think it's cool. Probably raises the MSRP a couple bucks, but that's no big deal.

I don't understand. As in they will look like books so you can put them in a bookshelf with books?

I love the idea. I enjoy special packaging (The Blade Runner Kit, Scarface Boxset, the E.T. Box set) so this is right up my alley

Sweet! Now I'm glad I didn't go and trade in for Blu-Ray version of these warner movies and I got killer deals on the relevant releases. When I go to double-dip -- it will sting less.

Re-releases with also PiP and Web features perhaps? I mean it's an easy way to double dip and the PiP and Web are already available on the HD DVDs.

I just hope the packaging isn't too large compared to the standard Blu-ray cases. It screws up my shelving, and thus brings my OCD issues to light.

IMO, this is ridiculous...why the heck would I want a book in the packaging of a digital medium to where it could get ripped, creased, soiled, etc.??? A step backwards in my mind. They could put whatever's in the book in a file on the disc!
