Are these not generally available on the high street?

Tried to buy it in town yesterday and couldn't find it anywhere......

3 HMVs, a WH Smith, Music Zone, and three other independants.

Whats the problem?

the odd one is released over here all be it there generally advertised as such. The beastie boys video collection was advertised as a criterion dvd. And my 2 disc R2 collectors edition version of The Rock is a criterion disc as the first thing it says on the menu is "The Criterion Collection" Strange i know

The Beastie Boys title can be legally imported and sold in the UK as it is a music title that is exempt from BBFC classification.

The reason you have that Criterion menu on The Rock is that a deal was struck where Criterion could have the rights to release this title for a limited period on condition that the extras laden version that Criterion produced would become the property of Touchstone when Criterion's disribution deal on the title ended.

Never thought of that Pauley. But i only paid £3.99 for mine and in the words of Mr T "I pity the poor fool" who spent god knows how much on his cirterion version once it became deleated. Saying that i might go and buy the mighty Videodrome on the criterion label. Been fancying that for a while now

Videodrome is a superb Criterion release. You'll love the packaging - looks like a Betamax tape.
