thanks for the suggestion thread. The Blu Collection certainly did a good job on film selecting; some of the films on the list have never been released in good packages/versions. Really looking forward to these releases:thumbs:
one suggestion. Could the releases come with more subtitles(good for international buyers other than Korea and English speaking countries)? kimchiDVD added Chinese and other subtitles in their exclusive steelbooks, and I will be extremely happy to see The Blu Collection do some similar work:D

I think Duncan Jones' Moon and Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men truly deserve quality releases. I'm so looking forward to what the Blu Collection has to offer! :scat:

I moved this to the top of the to-do list.

The Blu Collection release list is now officially updated with links, details and more! :)

I look forward to seeing your full set once it's complete! :)
I do have to ask, is there any real difference between buying #2 + #3 as boxset vs separately? Other than the obvious price reduction. I mean in terms of extras. May be a different slip for the boxset?

Also, what do you mean by "Wide Release"?

@AlienKing The only double-pack that's been released so far has been the François Ozon one and in all honesty, I don't think there's much of a difference besides it probably being a little cheaper as a bundle. I believe it's just the two films together with a 1/4 slip going around the bottom to hold them together.

Here's the pic from Kimchidvd:
