Default they should release more steelbooks

They should release more GREAT steelbooks.

The only interesting one now is The Dark Knight Rises...

They should release steelbooks for movies that don't have a steelbook release yet and the design should be perfect.

So with embossing and debossing, inside artwork, no text print on the back but on a data card, multiple discs and a lot of extra's.

A steelbook release should be the best and most complete release. Not like the 'The Rock - Armageddon - Die Hard' wave of Play.com.

The Kubrick films certainly deserve steelbooks.

I would like another Warners Bros. wave with at least Blood Diamond, L.A. Confidential, and Mystic River.

Only must haves for me now. No more catalogue titles unless they're cheap and have amazing artwork. Need to cutdown on the madness

possibly worth adding the words "in the Netherlands" to your thread title and a dutch flag, I dont know about anywhere else but the UK is flooded (no irony intended) with steelbooks

Yup, it's own thread. It's not the start of a discussion, just a rambling thought that could be fitted into so many other existing threads.

Cloverfield is far from the worst of the Play exclusives. Regardless of what you think of the film (not a fan I'm guessing) the DVD steelbook is amazing so, in terms of steelbooks, it's one that deserves a blu-ray version. It's fantastic.

That's all I meant by it. I was speaking more of a film fan. There are so many incredible films they could have chosen with regards to Paramount's catalog to release as a steelbook. Great film, great packaging. I'm buying.

Along this line, I'm wondering how a film is chosen to get the steelbook treatment.

I personally only buy steelbooks if it's a really good film and it has really good artwork.

I can understand really good movies the the Nolan Batman Trilogy getting the steelbook treatment, but some movies completely bomb - they suck - and still get the steelbook treatment, while other good movies are not considered.

Seems strange to me.

They release too many, thye aren't premium and it's no longer fun.

I'm out for all but the very special releases.

I was expecting this to be a gag thread. Caddyshack is real cheap right now. Should I hold out?

It seems to be quantity over quality.

The sad thing is most people want this.

agreed; steelbook collectng use to be fun when it was limited and hard to find. But now that practically every movie is released in one has it made it boring.
