    Thanks for the Rumble Fish info I'd somehow missed! Definitely heard good things about the 'Looking For Rusty James' extra feature.

    Well, I found a 2 disc Criterion 'The Last Picture Show' on it's own (ex-libris though) on ebay... hope it arrives safely... claws crossed! I really didn't have enough of an interest in half the other films in the box.

    Actually no, I'm now up to 796... just picked up a few more during a 40%-off sale at a local used shop. :)

    Hopefully you are saving #800 for a special title. :)

    Every Criterion I have now or have seen has already been mentioned with three exceptions:

    1.the double DVD of Story of Floating Weeds/Floating Weeds. Two different pictures with the same narrative or very close made in the 30s and late 50s respectively by Ozu.
    2. Nanook of the North
    3. My Man Godfrey with William Powell and Carol Lombard

    Of course Rocker must have them it's just that he didn't mention them. I didn't know Criterion even had 800 titles.

    Just watched Tootsie on MoviePlex...wondering if it's worth getting Criterion's Blu-ray. It's quite hilarious...just not sure how often I'd watch it.

    Yes, I do have them. ;)

    When it is released in December, the massive 100 Years of Olympic Films set will be spine #900.

    I wish all predictions were that easy. What will Criterion put out for #1000?

    I have the MoC BD of Floating Weeds (1959), which is far superior to the Criterion DVD in terms of AV quality.

    I'd be interested in seeing the 1934 silent version one day, but having the later film on BD pushes the Criterion set down my priority list somewhat.

    Would love to see a Criterion release of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    I have around 40 or so, a couple of rare ones such as 'This Is Spinal Tap'. I like my cool French stuff like Melville or music films such as Monterey Pop. I will buy them if on sale or secondhand. I'm glad to see the recent Welles releases in particular. Just bought Polanski's MACBETH from Amazon UK as it's a Region B disc.

    There are folks on bluray.com that own every single Criterion title released on Blu-ray, I'm not kidding.
    I don't understand the mentality there, not every one of those films is great in the first place.

    Not every film is for everybody, but there is much to enjoy in the Criterion Collection, for those with eclectic tastes. I can understand why people reach a certain stage and think, what the heck, I may as well fill in the remaining gaps.

    That's what happened to me with the Masters of Cinema Series. The BD collection is currently up to spine number 171. There are also an additional 65 spine numbers that are unique to DVD. I have them all.

    Do I like every film in the MoC Series? No, but I like the vast majority of them. At this stage, I'm committed to the series, and it's easy to keep up with the latest releases as they come out. They have put out many classic releases that I'm already familiar with. I've also discovered many new favourites as a result of blind-buys.

    7 days left for the CC 50% Off Sale at B&N.

    I was watching an edited copy of The Emperor Jones starring the late, great Paul Robeson and wished I had the uncut Criterion version at my disposal. It's one of several features in their Robeson Box Set.

    dvdbeaver.com has a nice feature breakdown.
    For me it's now or never (especially at the price). Not very many in circulation and I'm not sure if Criterion is producing more.

    You are on a forum where people collect Target variants of "artists" like Kenny G. or whomever to complete their collection of Target CDs.

    It's no less ridiculous than the folks around here who feel the need to own 50 different pressings of the same album.

    If money was no object, I would own the entire Criterion Collection, probably in all formats.

    Why not? :)

    Is there a list of the complete Criterion releases, both dvd and blu-ray anywhere?
