They finally posted the Mishima cover and boy is it ugly.

I saw The Last Emperor a long time ago but why'd they re-release it? "Restoration"?

Save 30% off (10% more than the usual discount) on any Eclipse set until April 7 with the code "NCAA" including the Klein and Silent Ozu pre-orders when you purchase through the Criterion.com store.

Also, they changed some artwork on the Klein boxset and made it uglier.

Yeah, I've been wanting to see it ever since it was announced, especially after watching Polly Maggoo on Sundance in January. It looks like it might be one of the better Eclipse sets, although they've been on a role with the last five (Fuller, Saura, Kurosawa, Lubistch, and now Klein).

I want a new set to be announced.

Any clue as to why there's been no word for so long?

They probably realized that they might have to push the Klein set back so they didn't want to end up pushing it back and releasing two Eclipse sets in the same month. Oh well, hopefully once this whole thing gets straightened out they'll go straight through until the end of the year. It's been an easy year so far for me, I only plan on buying one release in the entire first six months (Death of a Cyclist), although that may change when I see a few more of the new releases (Pierrot le fou, This Sporting Life, Antonio Gaudi, Klein Eclipse set).

I recently picked up The Ice Storm.

Not much I want this year so far:

This Sporting Life
Antonio Gaudi
Blast of Silence
Mishima
The Fire Within
Before the Rain
Klein set

And I've got the Varda set.

I'll Netflix the rest and see if I want to buy any of them--I'm betting I'll wind up wanting Pierrot.

That may look like a lot, but last year I'd end up wanting nearly every release.

The two I really want are Bottle Rocket and Salo.

I've been disappointed with the releases so far this year however I have not seen many of them before, although I am familiar with their reputations. Out of the forthcoming unscheduled releases, I'm interested in Dillinger is Dead, Last Year at Marienbad, Salo, Two or Three Things I Know About Her, The Exterminating Angel, and Simon of the Desert.

Wow, you were right, Salo is being re-released. I'm still too scared of what I've heard to attempt watching it though.

But I hear that Le Jour Se Leve is incredible, so I hope that gets released soon. And those Scorsese shorts sound interesting.

Probably once a month. I'm a huge lurker, mostly because I've been doing this cinephile thing for about eighteen months while most of them have been at it for something closer to eighteen years. It's a great place for film information, plus some of those people are hilarious.

Yeah, I'm the same way--minus the once-a-month post.

I just read what they say and think to myself, Wow, I'm a lot dumber than these people.

Yeah that forum is scary. I typically only post in Spanish film themed threads (e.g. Bunuel or Death of a Cyclist) because not too many people do, so there is little chance of me being completely flamed.
