Here's comparisons between the Eureka & Criterion Blu-rays: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdrev...dvd_review.htm

The Criterion definitely looks better to me, judging from those screenshot comparisons.

Devil's Backbone Confirmed

http://www.criterion.com/films/27914...vil-s-backbone

Del Toro effectively combines gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish concoction that reminds us—as would his later Pan’s Labyrinth—that the scariest monsters are often the human ones.

agreed, that cover is very nice!

funny how we all get so bent out of shape when other companies (Shout! Factory, etc) create their own cover art, yet Criterion, who almost never use original poster art, are never berated for the same issue.

EDIT: just checked the Criterion website, and noticed that this release is spine # 666. no way that's a coincidence.

...and here's detailed screen comparisons between the two. Criterion easily wins here as far as Repo Man goes.

There's a surprise Criterion sale going on over at Amazon, with quite a few recent titles available for 50% off.

REPO MAN: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20
NAKED LUNCH: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20
BADLANDS: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20
THE BLOB: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ag=cinema09-20

And a bunch of others like BLOW OUT, MEDIUM COOL, RUSHMORE, HOUSE, etc. Beats waiting for the B&N sale, plus no tax! (I grabbed Melville's LEON MORIN, PRIEST, too, because it's OOP. Not sure I'll ever watch it, but at least I'll have it if the mood arises, haha.)

Am I the only one that desperately wants Criterion to finally release The Life Aquatic on blu-ray already? It's the only Wes Anderson film not on blu, and it's a favorite of mine.

I wish I could take advantage of this sale but with the duty and Shipping costs to Canada this deal isn't much of a deal. I will wait for the Barnes and Noble sale which ends up being cheaper for us up here.

Nope, that's one of my most wanted titles from them!
