Criterion BR Classics: Seven Samurai, others on the way

July 18, 2010 by  

Criterion was once quite famous for their impeccable transfers of classic and modern films with tons of special features, and now they’ve caught the HD Blu-Ray fever it seems. Seven Samurai, the classic film, is on its way, along with others. Witness this blurb:

It hasn’t been that long since Criterion collection started shipping its classics on Blu-ray, and one of the most recently announced movies on the way is Akira Kurosawa’s classic, Seven Samurai. A flick which should need no introduction, it will get a three disc set when it arrives October 19 with a $49.95 MSRP, while we’ll have to wait for more specs and features, there will also be a few other incredible movies like The Magician, Paths of Glory, House and The Darjeeling Limited arriving around the same time, so make your preorder choices wisely.

We like the trend, and look forward to more Criterion masters down the road on Blu-Ray.
