Blue, it's a fault with the HD master so both the Criterion and Artificial Eye releases have the problem.

Apparently a mic is visible in one scene as well, so Grim I'd personally keep the DVD as the benefits of extra resolution are less important than frame composition and visible boom mics, but it's your call :)

No. But $8.48 postage for a single item puts the total cost ($28.47 or £17.61) over my threshold. Gas may laugh but some of us can't afford to justify paying over the odds for a piece of plastic. I have the Universal BD which cost me £6.99 and is quite sufficient.

i understand but have you noticed how much uk shipping to usa has gone up lately? it's a sign of the times.sadly if you have a threshold for Criterions these days good luck.personally there's not enough in the sale to tempt me...i think it's aimed more at people who will buy more than one,shipping then becomes a lot cheaper :)

Do B&N mark ALL shipments as 'book'? I mean, is there some risk involved? Also what happens if you don't pay the tax - do they items get returned?

all i know is multiple threads going back months on various forums (avforums,roobarbs,blu-ray.com etc) all state packages fronm B&N arrive marked as books..it's why the Criterion lovers actively salivate at this twice yearly sale,they order multiple titles at a time knowing they won't get hit....

Perhaps when it isnt a "pre order" it will go back to $20? I'll see.

I don't think they do pre-orders on Criterions, otherwise they're comparable.

Is it 5 cases in a box? I have Cobra/Tango and Cash but could sell them - was wondering if it would save space if I had the box. Great price.
