    To answer your question, I ordered Midnight Express from It was full price ($34.99). The website does not identify it as a digibook and the picture of the cover is too small to tell. But the specs are consistent and I don't believe the film has had a regular blu-ray case release yet.. If it turns out I am wrong, or there is a problem with the disc or anything else, I have the knowledge I can take it back to an actual store. I was willing to pay a bit extra for that security. Besides, the price difference for a new copy between and ebay is only a few dollars.

    Still, this is a lot more than I have ever paid for a digibook, quite a bit above my normal price point. This is what I get for passing on it when it was on sale for $14.99 right after Christmas 2010 because I had already spent so much. I was in no hurry to pick it up and figured it would come around again at that price or less. Next thing I knew, it was OOP.

    Hello, mate. I have been meaning to say thanks for the friend invite. Nice to find another fan of Australian cinema, especially a native. I had a roomate in college from South Australia. He introduced me to Vegemite (definitely an acquired taste), using eucalyptus oil in hot water to clear a head cold, and lots of slang (I still say dunny now and then without realizing it).

    Funny thing is, I was the one who introduced him to a lot of Australian movies he had never fact, the first time he saw Gallipoli was when I rented it.

    Hi there, Oildude. If you are lucky enough to get yourself that Digibook release of Midnight Express please share where you managed to get it from. Thank you.

    Hello, oildude.
    Noticed your interest in the Australian New Wave movies not reaching Blu-Ray yet. Totally agree with you. As an Australian who grew up in Brisbane outside of the focus on Sydney and Melbourne during this time and professionally trained for that emerging industry, I understand the frustration as well. You and I share many of the same interests in movies in our collections (probably by this stage we should call them "libraries"...) Texas is my home now. Glad to catch up with you. I extended you a friend request. Hope to catch up with you more through the Forum.
    Take care.
