Soooooo.. Will my sealed copy of The Third Man from Criterion be more or less valuable?

Delicatessen is a decent movie. Not to take away from it, but Amelie and City of Lost Children are so much better. And yes, The Third Man is a solid movie too, but why release a movie that's already been released when there are so many other great movies that haven't seen the light of day?

@ lemonski... As terrible as you may think the cover is, that artwork on the cover of "The Third Man" blu-ray is from a 1950's French poster.

@Neilsb90: likely retain is valueable, but to less people. If someone collect's Criterion titles, and don't have The Third man on blu, they'll want and pay thru ebay (or wherever) to get it, if it's just someone looking for a copy of the film, they'll just buy the Lionsgate version.

It doesn't look like that The Third Man has the same extras as the Criterion. I would still think that the Criterion release will still be valuable for that.

I just hope the Third Man's transfer is as good as Criterion's. Studio Canal as hit and miss.... Their Pierrot Le Fou disc looked very good, but Ran looked like crap.

Delicatessen-- Awesome! Hopefully this will be good!

Third Man-- D'oh! I fell for it and bought it before it became out of print! Dang.

Those of you who are complaining about the cover art need to know that it is a reproduction of the french release poster.

I love the artwork for "The Third Man", especially considering that it's reproducing an actual poster (and my favourite of the Third Man posters to boot!). I'll have to wait to hear a pretty darn positive review for me to buy it again though as the Criterion version is quite possibly my favourite Blu ever. Maybe I should grab it though so I don't wear out my Criterion disc :P.

About time they announced more StudioCanal movies on Blu-ray for the US. I don't know why they still haven't released all the movies they did in Europe here, like The Deer Hunter and The Elephant Man.

Was listening to Dana Polan's commentary track for The Third Man last night. I'll just stick with the Criterion copy I have now.

That Third Man cover is great; I too love seeing original (or close to) poster artwork on DVD covers. Even though I love almost all of Criterion’s covers, they are always very contemporary and don’t reflect the graphic design of the time of the films release. Studio Canal has chosen well in doing this instead of trying to compete with Criterion's graphic design.

Yes!!! I didn't get the Third Man on Criterion when it was out, and since it is one of my favorite movies from the 40's, definitely will get it!

@ MarkBart0305: *Most* of the Studio Canal titles are Region Free. I bought "The Deer Hunter" and "The Elephant Man" from Amazon.co.uk and they both play here just fine. Even the special features play.

"Maybe retail stores should lower it to two or three dollars less than the retail price just for the uninspiring artwork"

Yes, that will happen.

Also, it would be interesting to see how many people would have "hated" on the Third Man cover had Criterion decided to go with that exact treatment for their release. "It's brilliant!" "More Criterion perfection!" ...There's nothing wrong with studio canal's cover btw...it and the original poster it's taken from pretty much own you and your mother. Btw that's the indefinite 'you'--meaning anyone and everyone and their mother.

I too would much rather have City of Lost Children or Amelie. I do enjoy Delicatessen though and will definitely be buying it for the 4th time. Still have that laserdisc!

+1 for liking the Third Man artwork.

Sweet that Delicatessen is getting a US release. When I found out it was done by the same Director as City of Lost Children and is a post-apoc movie to boot.... had to get my mitts on it.

Speaking of which... when do you think we're see City of Lost Children on Blu-ray? That's what I'm really looking forward too.

I think this is great for those who did not get to buy The Third Man the first time around. Assuming it has a great transfer at least, I don't see any problem buying this version instead of the Criterion. I have the Criterion version and it is great, but if this has a great transfer and with lower price more than likely, I think this is a very good deal. I am not sure about the extras though, would have to take a close look to see which are not included in this version.

Alkaline, what a classic straw man argument. Even if the artwork came from an old poster, it doesn't change the simple fact that it looks awful. The design folks at Criterion were more than likely aware of the poster and may have even considered using it, but it appears they didn't because (again) it just. Looks. Awful.

I'm no Criterion apologist or anything (I happen to think StudioCanal's Ran release looked great), but come on man.

Based on past observations, i think the Criterion edition will drop in price, which means I may find one for a reasonable price once this is released.

Oh hey there, Leonids. Please, do me the service of pointing out where I used the reasoning that that poster art is "fantastic" simply on account of being "original poster art". Obviously that would be ridiculous. I just happen to think, in my own non-humble and objectively correct opinion, that it kicks ass. Wait--is my taste in my ass? I'm gonna lose sleep over it for sure.

The B&W cinematography in The Third Man is so good you could almost pick a still at random from the film and get good artwork for a cover. What do they do? Get an old poster that looks like a kids drawing.
