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.

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.

The UK steelbook is much nicer in the flesh than on a screen trust me.
What does that mean, Rickles?

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.

I've been too lazy to double dip on this. The MoC is very damn good.

I just got this not too long ago and I'm all over this Criterion release. I flippin' love everything about this edition. The cover art, the mock punk flyers, the "generic" disc layout and the sweet booklet. I think I've seen the film about five times now since I recently upgraded to the Criterion(though my dvd from Universal was still pretty good). Its really making me double think The Road Warrior as my all-time favorite movie.

I even have my Repo Man soundtrack getting heavy play time.
