@Clint Eastwood: You dont have to re buy Fargo. It says the titles will also be available separately on the same day. If you already have Fargo and don't want to re-buy it. Just buy the other ones.
EDIT:
Oh and we need Oh Brother!!!!!!!

I've actually yet to upgrade 'Fargo' to Blu-ray yet, so I may just buy this, provided the price is reasonable. If not, I'll at least get 'Miller's Crossing' right away. Been waiting for that to make it to Blu-ray for some time now.

Def getting "Raising" and "Miller's" I have "Blood Simple" on SDVD and I don't watch it enough to warrant upgrading, though it is a minor masterpiece.

I'm also probably alone in this but would like to have "Hudsucker Proxy" on Blu!

Finally! Miller's Crossing is one of the best movies ever made. You heard me. One of the best movies ever made. Seeing it on Blu-ray makes me very happy. Raising Arizona is an outstanding comedy as well, so I'm in for that one too.

A shame Barton Fink isn't included. It would've made more sense than putting Fargo in this, especially since Fargo is already available and most people who would want to buy this collection probably own it already.

Glad to see these coming out, but I'm always a bit dubious about a "collection" which only includes a handful of a given director's films. They might as well have made it a "Coen Brothers: The Early Works" set and left out Fargo (then maybe included Barton Fink).

"Raising Arizona" is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen, and I'm not normally into comedies.

The lack of Fink stings worse given the godawful picture quality on the DVD. One of the worst transfers from a major studio I've ever seen.

I think I'll be buying this. I have no problem re-buying Fargo. I think I only paid $10 and I've watched it twice already... I'm sure I can get $5 for it. Easy-peasy. (That being said, it would have made more sense for Fox to include Barton Fink... but I'll live.)

vanscottie you're not alone, that is an awesome movie, and I think with the visuals would look awesome on blu-ray.

I am going to pick the set up when it comes out don't have any on blu.

My instinct is to buy this automatically, without question. However, I am a bit worried that they may have rushed the transfers. Hopefully they gave them the time and effort they so richly deserve. I've seen every Coen Brothers movie (more than once, except for The Ladykillers...though I may give that turkey one more try), and I fully intend to own all of them on Blu (except for Intolerable Cruelty, Ladykillers, and maybe even Burn After Reading). I already own Fargo, No Country for Old Men, A Serious Man, and True Grit.

People on the fence about buying this should just go for it. On an A+ to F rating scale, all 4 films in this set would get an A- or A from me. I echo the sentiment shared by many that Fink should have been included in place of Fargo, but oh well. Maybe they're working overtime on a stellar, extras-packed 20th anniversary edition of it! Yeah right.

While I'm not as big a fan of O Brother as many people, I still would like to own it on Blu, as I'm sure it will look amazing, and the film has an undeniable charm (despite its flaws). And I'd also love to own The Hudsucker Proxy, which may have taken a few viewings to really get into, but has since proved to be an absurd delight.

One movie no one has mentioned yet is The Man Who Wasn't There, which I've always thought was an udnerrated gem from the Coens. It could certainly look terrific on Blu.

nobody remembers but their best film was The Hudsucker proxi , So much humour, Fantasy, Surealism.. I wander why this film was snobed by the Coens and the critic, wish it came out in blu ray

Boaz: Hudsucker sucked.

And where the hell is the Coens/Sam Raimi collaboration "Crimewave"?!

This is good news in that here we have four of the Coen brothers' best-regarded films in one package.

Although Fargo has been on blu for a while and I've been meaning to buy it, I just never got around to it. I'm actually glad I waited. Blood Simple and Miller's Crossing would be blind buys for me, but I'm enticed by both, especially Blood Simple.

I'll preorder this when I can do so.

Depending on Amazon's price (could change between now & release) - it might actually be cheaper for those of us who own Fargo to buy the box set instead of the other three separately. Right now buying the other three would be $48.97, and buying the set with all four would be $47.99.

No, I'm not THAT cheap, just a matter of principle.
