But yes, the film is the most important for me, so I'm not going to stubbornly ignore these. That said, I'll be a little miffed if I buy these and end up having to double-dip when Criterion announce them because either WB or Criterion had a change of heart and decided to port the Criterion disc over. Malick and Altman are especially two of my favourites so I would be tempted to double-dip.

And yes, Idaho is one of Van Sants better films. Years since I saw it but he was pretty consistent up until Good Will Hunting (though in my opinion it's only in recent years he's waned). Anyway, River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves...what more could you want? Easy upgrade for me (though I might keep my DVD for the extras, if this does turn out to be completely barebones).
Thanks, I might consider it down the line then. I’ll watch the trailer and have a little read about it, and see if it floats my boat. Haven’t actually seen the other 2 either, but I know more about them, and have fancied giving them a go for some time. Might even go MENTAL and buy them at 2 for 25. The codes will bring in some cash at least.

I seem to remember hearing the current BD of Witness isn't that amazing but I've held off buying the DVD so would pick this up in a 2 for 15 if they did announce it. Reckon there's a good chance it's the kind of film Paramount would bring to the Premium Collection, so let's wait and see.

PS: never seen The Mosquito Coast but would like to!
OMG! you have to!

Ford, Helen Mirren & River Phoenix in the same film directed by Weir? No brainer!

The WB disc is much better encoded than the Criterion.

here, another comparison:

So, are we sure it will be the exact same disc with the German one?

WB generally use the same disc worldwide.

If patience is possible they have a 2 for 15 offer, I think twice a year, so get them then.

The 2 you're asking about aren't released until March 19, so you'll be hard pressed to get anyone give you an overview of the quality of these particular discs yet.
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be Ray Liotta.

Good to see some leftfield titles now included in the range. Would love it if they also brought out The World According To Garp or Dead Calm (though still holding out for some Hitchcock or more Howard Hawks).

I thought it was believed they will almost certainly match the German BDs released by Warner there.

Could try the various German forums with Chrome / Google translate for any comments.

I think most here would have gone for the more stacked but RA locked Criterion US releases.

I would think so. There's no reviews for either on this site, so I gave up there.

Hopefully another title is added soon. I only buy these in pairs.
I love 3D Blu Rays.

EVERY steelbook of a film which has a 3D version should include the 3D version.

You get nothing for a pair in this game.

I just watched Fantastic Voyage (1966) for the first time the other day and loved it!!
Hope it comes to the collection with the original poster art, because the existing ones are hideous!

I'm jealous. I'd love to have watched Fantastic Voyage for the first time. Great film, it would be a worthy addition to the range

It’s a Fox title though, and so far this collection has only included titles from Warner Bros, Sony and Paramount, I believe. I bought it a couple of years ago anyway, having never seen it before, so I should probably give it a go soon!
