VARIOUS ARTISTS
A Tribute To Repo Man
Catalog Number: ALR-0028
Release Date: 09/18/12

CD = $10

Track List:

Repo Man - Those Darlins
TV Party - Polar Bear Club
Institutionalized - Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra
Coup D'Etat - New York Rivals
El Clavo Y La Cruz - Black Francis & Spanish for Hitchhiking
Pablo Picasso - The Tellers
Let's Have A War - Mike Watt & The Secondmen

Have you heard the new cover (completely different lyrics) of Institutionalized by Body Count? It's got to be the best thing Ice-T has done in his entire career. It's hilarious. I almost like it better than the original, and I'm a huge Suicidal Tendencies fan. I'd post a YouTube link but it's way too obscene.

Got to see a 35mm print a few years back, brought some friends who'd never seen it. It was wonderful. Too bad the theater, since revamping, no longer has a film projector. What a waste.

Higher bitrate or not, the Criterion release looks better judging by the caps.

http://caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleich...ID=235#auswahl

One could make the argument that opening the matte to 1.78 sucks, but it's never bothered me personally, and the better color and contrast tweaks on the Criterion make it the winner in my mind. It also looks better compressed; a high bitrate won't mean much if the encoding isn't done well.

Helps that I dig digipaks, also. That art on the Criterion package is too cool.

I still have some REPO MAN shirts left.

I had these sweet t-shirts made up for me and my friends. I have some extras for sale. If anyone in the lower 48 U.S. is interested, send me a private message. The shipping rates for me to send them outside the lower 48 U.S. are outrageous and wouldn't be worth it.

Both designs are nice in their own way, so if you're a huge fan get both. I gotta say that Criterion's disc art is probably the coolest and most clever design gimmick I've seen of any DVD/blu ray. And there are other reasons other than cover art to get both version - they each have some exclusive extras that the other one doesn't have, and the film is presented in slightly different aspect ratios on the two versions. Crtierion's image quality is better but it's not night and day better and Eureka's is still pretty nice.

Did anyone order the Criterion from Amazon over the recent months, and if so what condition did it arrive in? Were the corners mashed in and rounded?

Does anyone else have problems with their Repo Man (Criterion) disc? I've played it many times since I received it this monday with three possible results:

1. It plays fine
2. It starts skipping
3. The screen freezes, goes black and the disc reloads

Any of these three seem to happen at random, like a lottery. I don't think that there's anything wrong with my player (Oppo). It's possible that this is one lone faulty disc, but there's also a possibility that the Repo Man discs have been pressed in some factory with poor quality standards like some of the earlier Criterion blu ray releases. I've already posted about it in the disc rot thread.
