    Not having the participation of DePalma and Kidder is a bummer but it's still a Day One for me. Wasn't Criterion planning to release this on blu? I have the old DVD of theirs but cannot part with it until I have a replacement in-hand.

    Watched Sisters over the weekend, A nice upgrade from the Criterion DVD but Sisters has always looked pretty rough. I can imagine a few folks might be disappointed with the transfer but when you consider the age, budget etc...Arrow have done a fine job, any issues are source related. PQ 3.5/5

    The extras are fantastic, highly recommended :cool:

    I like the normal Burbs artwork. That should be on the Steelbook.

    Arrow seem to be on it at the moment. I'am thinking about selling my Shout! Incredible Melting Man, before arrows comes out.

    Shout! should start using BD-50's like arrow. I can they cost more but it would allow them to max out the bitrate and have better pq.
