LMAO, I didn't even know those had any collectible value like that. If it's just a simple cardboard recreation of the cover/backcover on the keepcase, I don't see what's the point in having it. A needless annoyance.

There's threads on blu-ray.com about it. It happens a lot actually. Someone will bend their slipcover/bust it trying to unwrap it and then offer 2-4 bucks for someone else's if it's in near mint condition. It cracks me up.

Some people like it for uniformity with the others on the shelf, and will go out of their way to find a slipcover for the movie they bought if it didn't have one. A few months after being released they stop producing the slipcovers, so they become harder to find.

Most slipcovers will go for $1-4 but some are crazily priced at like $25

I bought two slipcovers in my life, and I was actually only buying them for the empty case the guy was shipping them with. $4 for 2 slips and 2 empty cases to replace the broken ones I had at the time.

I should just buy a 20pack of replacement cases on ebay to have but oh well.

I'm weird and slightly OCD about my cases though. If my case is cracked or damaged in anyway (won't snap shut due to a missing piece), I have to replace it with a new one. But, definitely not obsessing over a simple cardboard slipcover. Glad I don't have it that bad.

Speaking of cases, I wish all Blu-Ray's came in the clear cases like Criterion's do.



Same size dimensions as a standard Blu-Ray case. I'm oddly annoyed by the extra blue space on top with that embossed "Blu-Ray" on most of the releases.

Some 3D ones by Sony have been in clear cases, but I wouldn't want all of them to come in clear. I like the blu cases, almost as much as my green cases that the Incredible Hulk and The Grinch are in.

Official Release Date for Fast and Furious 6 has been set as December 10, 2013, nearly 6.5 months after being released theatrically in NA.

I've got the steelbook on preorder.

Anybody go Blu-Ray crazy with all the Holiday deals? Had to of spent atleast like 350. Purchased like 10 steelbooks, 2 Criterions, The entire Friday 13th collection collectors edition, Indiana Jones collection, 40th anniversary collection of the Godfathers which comes in this like sick white/gold Bible.

Got tons of keep cases for X-Mas and picked up some cheap ones too. Up to 112 movies now

Cineplex Store online here in Canada had everything 50% off last week. Also anything $14.99 and over got you a free ticket to the movies so I split everything up into several orders since it was free shipping regardless of the amount.

I just ordered a bunch of movies/shows that I loved but were always too expensive elsewhere. I basically cleared off my Amazon wishlist. Closer, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Up, Stranger than Fiction, This is the End, The Master, Nosferatu, Star Trek TNG seasons 3 and 4 and the Star Trek TNG movie collection.

Talk about disrespect to the visual genius duo that was Leone & Delli Colli.

Nahh ordered one from Cineplex in Canada. Got it for like 24 bucks total which is great for Canada

Never seen the movies your talking about and actually haven't seen a ton of Criterions but I own 4 total now and every one is pretty much everything you'd ask for.

Which Criterion's do you have?

They are one of my favorite companies in any industry, because they take what they do very seriously. Out of their massive catalog of titles, they've made very few mistakes in terms of classic film restoration. It would do a lot for their reputation if they admitted their mistakes in those few cases and re-released them. Everyone's hoping that happens for 'Children of Paradise' and 'The Earrings of Madame de...' in particular.
