Hmm... ok. The plot thickens (or thins?). You're right then; it must be Bull Durham.

my two loves in life - baseball and film. sorry to say, though, that Bull Durham probably wouldn't even make a top 10 list of my favorite baseball movies. I think it's incredibly overrated.

I agree. I really liked it when it came out but, unlike Susan Sarandon, it hasn't aged that well. It's good, but not Hall of Fame material.
Current pre-orders:
02/20/2018: Farewell, My Lovely / The Big Sleep
04/17/2018: The Awful Truth

Most wanted blu ray release: Bringing Up Baby

They should've released Bull Durham back in December to coincide with Just Getting Started; they already released another film to coincide with another director's bomb that month

I've never seen Bull Durham so I can't comment on it. However, it doesn't seem like a film that screams Criterion spine to me.

That being said, it does seem to have some relevancy, at least according to some statistics listed on its Wikipedia page.
  • Sports Illustrated ranked it the #1 Greatest Sports Movie of all time.
  • The Moving Arts Film Journal ranked it #3 on its list of the 25 Greatest Sports Movies of All-Time.
  • The film is ranked #55 on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies."
  • It is ranked #97 on the American Film Institute's "100 Years...100 Laughs" list.
  • #1 on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the 53 best-reviewed sports movies of all time.

Lots of MGM films have gotten new 4K scans/restorations, so boutique labels are raiding them. The Apartment, Silence of the Lambs, The Magnificent Seven, Annie Hall, etc..There will be many more I'm sure.

"Eight Men Out", "The Bad News Bears", and "Major League" are easily my three favorite baseball films. "Bull Durham" is close behind though. I think it's Costner's best baseball film, largely because Ron Shelton played minor league ball and it contains many great vignettes reflective of his experience.
Top 10 Most Wanted on Blu-Ray: 1) After Hours 2) Bringing Out the Dead 3) Bob Roberts 4) O Lucky Man 5) California Split 6) The Music of Chance 7) The Limey 8) Brewster McCloud 9) The Hitcher (1986) 10) Straight Time

They really like Tim Robbins over at Criterion. Bull Durham is a solid baseball flick but I'd never have guessed a Criterion release for it.

I don't think so. Often it's just from insider sources, or you'll see a film pop up at an Art House website mentioning that it's sourced from a new 4K restoration, etc..

Any notable film that has had a so-so release before is probably fair game.

Speaking of Tim Robbins, someone, anyone, needs to put out "Tapeheads" and "Bob Roberts".

Yup and even though I'm not generally a fan of re-releases like this I would much rather have Criterion in that scrum than not.

Some Like it Hot has a 4K restoration too, I would expect a Criterion or Arrow Academy release this year.
