The Criterion DVD (which streeted in the US yesterday) is the best DVD package I've seen in quite the while, including the just-released Gosford Park disc.

To wit:

-- Commentary
-- Short interviews with most of the stars
-- IFC special behind the scenes

and best of all

a big fold-out drawing by Wes Anderson's brother detailing the entire Tenenbaum house.

That is one of the nicest packages I've ever seen for a DVD, and that movie certainly deserves it. And Best Buy was selling them for $16.99 yesterday! Awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome.

Best movie of the year, if not this whole young decade. The DVD is worth every penny (is there any Criterion DVD that isn't?)

I'm a Criterion junkie (over 100 of the ~160), but there have been some odd choices lately, like the Idi Amin documentary or George Washington. Don't forget Armageddon.

I'm sorry, I had erected a brick wall in my mind around the area that remembered they did Armageddon. It is like they heard the expression, "You can't polish a turd," and tried to prove it right.

George Washington is a very good film with beautiful cinematography.

Armageddon, though, is shit.

I'll also say that the new(ish) Spinal Tap DVD is superior to the now-out-of-print Criterion version (because of the new version's "Spinal Tap in Character commentary track).

I didn't say GW was a bad film. It was just an odd choice I thought, deviating from what I would call the usual Criterion picture (French New Wave, Kurosawa, ...).

Personally, I'm waiting for Tokyo Olympiad. Now, if they would only do Reifenstahl's Olympia.

Granted, but no odder than, say, Royal Tenenbaums (even given Rushmore's precedent)

Royal Tenebaums was without a doubt one of the smartest comedies of the past few years. I've never seen a movie with so many interesting characters. They all have that little aspect that made them stand out and special. I love that movie.

Yep, never gets old (and I'm testing that theory)

Easily the best movie I've seen in this decade, I'm sure it'll probably be defeated in the next 8 years, but so far, it's King.

I almost forgot the greatness of Pagoda.

I didn't find RT as entertaining as most; granted, I didn't care for Rushmore that much outside of the "not if you've fucked" scene, so maybe I'm just one of those types who doesn't care for movies in love with their own humor (not much of a Kevin Smith fan, either). Watching Hackman, Huston, and Paltrow blow it in their biggest emotional scenes didn't help matters, either. However, there were two positives from buying it: Luke Wilson did a nice job, and, whenever I listen to "Judy Is a Punk" in the car, I can't shake the image of Paltrow fondling another woman.
