    You know, thomwade, you’re probably right. If they have to release Transformers just to keep producing more from Malick, Bergman, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky and others, I’ll be willing to put up with it.

    Even though you won’t see it on my shelf…

    I love the cover art for the Criterion release … beautiful and brilliant. Can’t say the same for the awful cover of the previous release. It kept me from watching Days of Heaven for a LONG time.

    Hopefully you won’t have to wait 29 years for a Criterion New World release. If they put another Michael Bay movie in the collection BEFORE more Malick, they will be getting an angry letter from yours truly.
