I promised myself that I wouldn't double dip. Then I bought The Third Man again, now I've got Ran lined up in my sights for May.
*sigh* what is a promise if it can't be broken.

Oh, and I have a non-Criterion edition of Bottle Rocket on DVD, so does that count as double dipping? hmmm...

Same here. As of now, only have Chungking Express. Will try to pick up a few more before Ran, but once that title hits, I'll be all over it!

I am hoping they decide to take the plunge and start at least releasing all new movies on blu. They just announced The Friends of Eddie Coyle on DVD. Criterion discs aren't cheap and I can't justify paying those kind of prices for DVDs at this point. They also have a bunch of catalouge titles that I'm going to wait out to see if they give them the blu treatment.

I remember reading that they were going to keep releasing standard DVDs at their current pace (3 to 4 per month) for the foreseeable future. Blu-rays are to be released at a much slower pace (1 to 2 titles per month) until DVD's momentum dies down.

It's smart marketing. If the release a title now on DVD that you really want, chances are you'll buy it now. If you really enjoy the title, odds are good that a few years down the road, when it gets the blu-ray treatment (which, oddly enough, is the same treatment they give their DVDs) you'll buy it again. Hence, the "double-dip".
Frustating for us collectors, probably not noticed by "Joe Public". Heck, I bet if you ask 10 random people on the street what the Criterion Collection is, you'd be hard-pressed to find 1 who knows.

I double dipped on The Last Emperor and will probably get In the Realm of the Sense.

Aside from The Third Man, The 400 Blows and The Wages of Fear are two films that are absolutely essential for every serious film library.

Pro-B

ps
Beta-Man, very good idea to have a sticky Criterion thread so we could streamline all the info that will be coming up in the future

Thank You.
There's a guy over in The "RAN" thread that annouced that "Finally a film that matters" is being released (in reference to Ran).

Happy to find others share my thoughts.

I don't see the sense in buying the entire Criterion Collection (whether on DVD or Blu) unles you like all the movies (no very likely but I'm sure there's someone). That said, eventually I'll pick up The Third Man and probably Ran. I plan to rent Wages of Fear, 400 Blows and possibly In the Realm of Senses as I have not seen them yet but have heard good things.
