Criterion Collection Blu-ray Coming In October

DVD fanatics were waiting anxiously for what high-definition format Criterion Collection was going to release its catalog in. In what seems like a distant memory, the format war is long over and now Criterion is free to release its content on Blu-ray.

In a thankfully bold move, the company is releasing (as per its newsletter) its Blu-ray discs at the same price point as the standard DVDs, which makes it a no-brainer to simply buy the Blu-ray discs if you don’t already own the standard discs.

The new era begins with:

The Third Man
Bottle Rocket
Chungking Express
The Man Who Fell to Earth
The Last Emperor
El Norte
The 400 Blows
Gimme Shelter
The Complete Monterey Pop
Contempt
Walkabout
For All Mankind
The Wages of Fear

Thankfully, I own none of these yet, and will now wait for The Third Man to come out before finally splurging. Actually, I think I own Walkabout. GRRR.
