Criterion Collection’s first Pixar movie, Wall-E, goes deep into the highbrow inspirations and creative process at Pixar.
Criterion Collection makes the Infernal Affairs trilogy look beautiful and loads it up with bonus features reflecting on the films and archival from when they were made.
Criterion Collection’s Night of the Living Dead 4K UHD presents the black and white horror classic in all its shadowy detail.
The Criterion Collection 4K UHD of “Blow Out” looks and sounds great and goes deep into the making of the film.

Then films like Robocop, Silence of the Lambs and The Rock began being added. The Princess Bride was part of Criterion […]
