I'm all about the films. Provided they're presented well the packaging is surplus to my needs. The slipcases are nice and I'm glad I have those versions - but it's not everything to me. The film on the disc is what's important IMO. I'll even take crap artwork if the film is presented well and is one I want.

I quite agree, sometimes it seems some people on here seem more preoccupied with the packaging and the fact it's a limited edition than the movies themselves.As you say, as long as the movie is presented well and it's uncut, I'm more than happy.

Tell us something we don't know. Weirdo!

Personally I'd never deprive myself of a film I really wanted if the cover was a bit naff. Like I say, the film is what's of paramount importance to me. Some of the early ABUS DVD covers were truly awful, but the films on offer were so good I bought just about all of them. Glad I did too, the transfers were more-often-than-not exceptional, and I was overjoyed to have the films in my collection.

To place the importance of packaging above the film itself is just plain weird.

Weirdo!

no i still would i guess, it just wouldnt be a priority over a limited editon of another film.

ignore me im just in a mood about no more slipcase versions - outside of my steelbooks they are the nicest thing to look at in my bluray collection. just a shame its ending but if it means that we get steelbooks then thats cool i guess.

Ah, I suppose I can agree with you there.

I love the slipcases but its not make or break for me. I detest dual format though. I get a dvd I can play and usually a code locked blu -ray I can't. (if anyone knows a legit place I can get a decent priced region-free player that plays all blu ray regions please message me with info)

That's a little bit rude. You could've just said there's a thread on here somewhere and pointed him to the search function.
