    Wooowwww…

  5. Are the discs stored in the booklet or does it come in a steelbook #hopeful

  6. Ben Argrave Ben Argrave says:

    Would go for this for the poster alone, if the poster came flat or rolled. As it is, it will be folded and creased unfortunately. So steelbook it is I guess

  7. Graham Head Graham Head says:

    I started collecting DVDs to save space. Now they come with an additional crate!

  8. With the Studio Canal 4K boxset/steelbook releases, I tend to double dip if there is value to it

    Apocalypse Now didn’t have anything in the boxset over the steelbook, and the Angel Heart steelbook was announced after I’d got the 4K release. The other ones I got because of the extra stuff included

    This is worth double dipping on

  9. Thanks for posting looks amazing. Would love Highlander to get the same treatment.

  10. Don’t know if your interested Lyndon Cutting
