April 1st Criterion extravaganza
The Criterion Collection, a continuing series of important classic and contemporary films, has just announced the addition of several extremely prestigious titles to their ever-growing library. Why, there’s Problem Child, Manos: The Hands of Fate, Crossroads: A Britney Spears Tale, and even Road Trip! With prices ranging from $39.99 to $79.99, this is clearly an exclusive range, so which one will you be purchasing first?

Especially the inclusion of "Armageddon" with a link to the real site, as that's the bitter truth! ;-)

Took me about three seconds to realise that I had not been redirected from your site. I mean, Problem Child?
Though a Criterion disc of Manos - that would be tempting.

Can these new Critcos be played on my new KF-VHS-1080X? :-P

WTF!? RRP of $79.99 and i get NO Ritter commentary on "Problem Child"?
And i'll be reversing my cover of "Crossroads" for sure!

Thank you Phantom, I tried to tell the upper management who created that fantastic ensemble of Criterion titles that my cover should have been the main one.
But those soulless buffoons went for the artistic approach. Cretins!

Very clever! I still find it hard to believe Criterion actually did an edition of Armageddon...
And personally I really would welcome a Criterion Problem Child.
