This is one I've been wanting to see for a while and my most anticipated release of theirs for a while.

Do they charge upon shipping or immediately when I preorder?

I saw this at the theater and the atmosphere of the film really creeped me out. Look forward to seeing it again.

Cure imo is Kurosawa's masterpiece and probably best described as the Japanese Se7en, came out a couple of years after Fincher's film and alongside Ringu really spearheaded the j-horror movement. Today it's kinda been forgotten about in the west because it's been neglected on home video for so many years but 10/15yrs back it was generally held in similar esteem to Se7en and is obviously a classic back in japan.

I'm really looking forward to receiving this.

Just a heads up though, when I watched a 35mm print of Cure on the big screen a couple years ago it was quite soft and muddy in appearance with greyish black levels the way a lot of Japanese movies are, including Kurosawa's own "Pulse". The presentation was filmic and nice but keep your expectations realistic as I wouldn't be surprised if this is in line with a lot of what we have seen from Japanese movies on BD. If there's been additional work performed and it looks better than the print I saw, I'll be happy to report that here.

I am really hoping that both Cure and The Cremator get blu-ray releases from Criterion. Now that both of these classics have proper HD digital transfers, nothing should stand in the way of North American versions.

MoC's releases are usually just as good as Criterion ones, if not better. If you can import, go for it.

The Cremator is region free, AFAIK. No reason not to import it. Second Run are a label everyone should be getting behind.

I screened this last night. What a fantastic movie! It reminded me a lot of Silence of the Lambs, and the villain was just as dangerous. The image and sound were great. Excellent cinematography and lighting in this film. Not much going on in the rear channels, but that's OK. Very impressed by this one.

Just as a heads up, my copies booklet has one blank page that is definitely not intentional. The essay just cuts off. Seems to be in a lot of peoples.

This is one of those discs that is worse in motion IMHO than screenshots show. It is clearly a very old master that dances around quite a bit when the camera pans.

Not the right place I know but last night me and a friend saw his recent movie Before We Vanish and thought it was a lot of fun. A kind of Body-Snatchers meets Terminator sci-fi mashup and among the various KK films I've seen it is the most openly funny. I was laughing at several points in the film.
