That is kinda funny haha, though I love PI so much I can't complain.

I do have a blu-ray combi with that and He Got Game, and it looks terrific, but yeah...surprised Criterion hasn't hopped on that one.

Yup.

Excellent news!

Love his Sandman stuff and adapting Elfman's work was well done, but everything else I find either surprisingly anonymous or just plain bad (the fight scene between Harry and Peter sounds almost disco-like, really stood out badly in the theatre when I saw that mucky muck of a muckness). I dunno...probably still a 3.5/5, but definitely not Top 200 material.
