    Jesus Christ. Just when I think the Blu-ray releases for this fall can't get any better out of nowhere this news hits! I already own Devil's Backbone on DVD and I was tempted to get the upgrade, but now I'm glad i waited because this boxset is the real deal. The one minor grip I have is that the Pan's Labyrinth release is going to be 2k and not 4k, but yet they're still going 7.1 with the audio? Odd, but not a deal breaker for me.

    I think that's due to how Pan's Labyrinth was produced. If I'm not mistaken, the film was shot on 35 mm, but mastered and finished as a 2K Digital Intermediate.

    I'll pass. I already have The Devil's Backbone on Criterion Blu and Cronos on dvd. Didn't care for Pan's Labyrinth.

    I already have the Devil's Backbone blu ray, but just sold my Pan's Labyrinth DVD. I'm really tempted by the box set... maybe the next half price Criterion sale...
