...good lord, I honestly never knew that's where Mia ended up. Oh, don't get me wrong, Exotica and Sweet Hearafter are truly wonderful flicks, and even Felicia's Journey had its moments, but Ararat was -that- bad... Uwe Boll doing Schindler's List bad.
We can extend this discussion for fun to those Criterion SD that I've kept even having double dipped to the HD version. Spartacus I bought on HD despite the ranting, and it certainly doesn't look like Crank (!), but I thought it was an improvement over the SD Crit. That said, the Criterion Spec Ed. contains some of the most entertaining rants by Ustinov ever committed to film, and a Criterion BD version with an even nicer-er print would be great. Hell, it wouldn't even be my first double dip High Def release by Kubrick (FMJ of course has that "honour"). Amazing when I'm reaching 6x dips on some of these flicks...sigh.
I didn't bother getting Dazed and Confused on HD, as it the Crit. had more than its share of goodies. I really love Fear and Loathing, and the HD-DVD does a nice job with the flick, but, again, one should own the Crit if only for JD reading the back-and-forth letters between him and Hunter S.
Robocop sure as hell could use an extra or two from the Crit. SD (that I don't own, sadly)...
Additionally, I think it'll make for a very interesting test with the Gimme Shelter discs - for the same price it's of course a no brainer to get that instead of SD, but I'm not sure that the 16mm print will be noticeably better in HD. I'd like to hope that I could hold off on double dipping (as I listen to Get Your Ya Ya's out on SACD while typing), but we'll see...
Another vote, for the hell of it - Last Temptation, with Lossless audio and new features, like, say, a 90 minute documentary on PG and the team he assembled for his sublime soundtrack.
Hey, while we're dreaming, why not?
