    Very excited, and I hope it has the TV cut.

      It is supposed to include the TV version. In fact, about a week before the newsletter clue, a poster over at the Criterion forum claimed that they talked to Alex Cox and he told them that Criterion was going to release REPO MAN and it would include all the stuff on the MoC release plus some newly created special feature.

          Repo Man is one of my favorite films, so the night I get the Blu I'll treat it to a nice romantic dinner. Soft lit candles with a nice pasta dish and some fine wine, then steal a 1964 Chevrolet Malibu.

            Criterion's New Years Day drawing

            Here seems to be the consensus:
            Man hanging from clock = SAFETY LAST/HAROLD LLOYD FILMS
            clock reading 3:10 = 3:10 TO YUMA
            music notes and leaves = AUTUMN SONATA
            clown on highwire = PIERRE ETAIX FILMS
            woman eating candy = LIFE IS SWEET
            screaming guy = SCANNERS (also means Criterion has THE BROOD)
            fire and gate = GATE OF HELL
            devil = THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE
            conch shell the devil is holding = THE LORD OF THE FLIES
            naked woman eating = BABETTE'S FEAST and NAKED LUNCH
            woman with the curtains pulled back = ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS
            guy with eraser for head = ERASERHEAD
            kid and guy holding samurai sword and birdcage = THE KID, LE SAMOURAI, BARTON FINK, ZATOICHI, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES

              Looking forward to these. To think we've had to wait for over a decade for a special edition of Scanners and The Brood.

                Crazy, right? I'm all over these. And will definitely upgrade to Naked Lunch and Eraserhead on Blu-ray. Criterion seems to be rolling out some very welcome genre titles lately. Nice to see that.

                  I'm just happy that the picture of Cronenberg with a bag full of Criterion swag actually was a clue that they were working on SCANNERS and not that he just stopped by to get some free stuff.

                      The ROSEMARY'S BABY blu is ridiculously good looking. What an amazing presentation.

                        It turns out that the Easter Eggs from the DVDs have been carried over to the Blu-rays and they are accessible. You just have to have it on the right menu and hit the blue button on the remote. For Example, on the ISLAND ON LOST SOULS Blu, go to the Casale and Mothersbaugh menu, hit the blue button and you bring up the short clip of Ernie Anderson talking to Ghoulardi.

                                Yet another Japanese set and more Japanese singles. I love Japanese cinema, too, but somebody at Criterion is obsessesed.

                                I want Criterion to release RIDE IN THE WHIRLWIND and THE SHOOTING (both 1965), the two Monte Hellman westerns they'e been sitting on for several years.

                                Criterion discriminates against westerns. Only six westerns out of 500 releases since they converted to DVD and blu-ray in 1997 -- not a good record.

                                So many artful and breakthrough westerns from the earliest days of cinema up through the 1980s that haven't been released on home video and that are more than up to Criterion standards.
