has anyone else noticed the 2007 edition of FMJ that still has the white background cover?
it stood out because it doesn't have the snap cover or flap cover, whatever you call those.
i had never seen a FMJ dvd without that type of case.
very odd that they'd come out with this right before the new one with the photo up above this post.

Does this make a statement about Bluray? All the other covers remain the same as HD/SD where as the one that might appeal to 'charlie blastin' PS3 gamers gets a less subtle re-working.

I'm sorry to taint a Kubrick thread with the ridiculous format war, it's just that 2001 in HD is extremely tantalising. Unlike the thought of buying these Special Editions twice.

no. we've known they were gonna be widescreen for quite a while now. the image that has been lost is not important, and there is some extra stuff on the sides to compensate. it'd be nice if they included both full and wide, but let's not retread the same old aspect ratio discussion, please, for the love of HD, anything but that.

you are legion now (the use of 'we')?

yes, i remember talking about it previously.
the question was - is anyone not buying because of it?


although i'm sure someone will point to something else, i've never seen IMDB do this for a boxset:

I think Shining should be presented in widescreen.  I doubt any theater in the US at the time of its release would have been able to project 1.37:1, so they would have projected at 1.85:1 anyways.

at first i was going to buy them even though it would be the third time for some, but now i'm thinking i'll have to buy them again when i get an hd player.. but that's at least a year from now. i'm torn.. want to see the docs and no place will rent them. counsel me, xixax.

ps. everyone check the ews review if only for the insane international poster i've never seen anywhere else.

I passed on the previous releases of these films because of the transfers, so I'm buying this new set.  When you're ready you could sell the SD set and put that money towards the HD versions.  Its up to you.
