No joke, that cover's better than anything Criterion's put out in months. A great embrace of indie rock aesthetics (for no real reason, sure, but still)

I assume (I hope) the jpg compression isn't in the actual artwork.

Looks like the work of Rodrigo Corral.

Kino's new The General/Three Ages blu-ray reviewed. The General loses its tint and looks generally cleaner, whereas the supposedly new transfer of Three Ages turns out to be encoded with MPEG-2. What a glorious effort!

This showed up on the Nitrateville site:
Matt Barry from Kino Lorber here. I wanted to let everyone at Nitrateville know that we're having our final clearance on a handful of Buster Keaton products that have been discontinued, while supplies last. We are running the final promo through Sunday, and we pull off the site on Monday morning. Please visit the link below to our website for ordering information:
This is the Keatons clearance link

I'm sure the Cohen's Keatons will start arriving on the market soon. A number of them are 4k.

Kino is releasing Thunderbirds Are Go/Thunderbird 6 double feature Blu-ray in June. This is the first (of hopefully many) re-release of a Twilight Time Blu by an independent label.

I don't even care about these, but I'm tempted to buy them to show support for rescuing Twilight Time titles.

I bet Kino picks up all the lapsed MGM titles they put out on DVD

I think you are correct, with an outside chance that Criterion picked up Wild at Heart.

The TT MGM titles that sold out before being heavily discounted seem to be the most likely.

That Keaton link doesn't seem to lead to the sale. This link shows what few Keaton products they have left. I'm tempted to pick up their last reissues of The General/Three Ages and Steamboat Bill Jr./College just for the alternate scores (The General includes one by Joe Hisaishi).

I saw VARIETY with the Berklee score last year in San Francisco -- it's pretty loud and monotonous. Lots of loud brassy menace. I'm much more eager for the Kino THE LAST LAUGH that will, I hope, feature a Berklee score performed in San Francisco the year before last.
