Packaging / Design

I've always been a big fan of plastic slipcases but this one comes of as one of the more boring designs I've seen so far.

The slipcase isn't really transparent appart from a small line at the top and a slightly shaded part in the middle of the front cover (you'll notice that the faces of the cast can bee seen through the slipcase but everything else is blocked out).

I don't really mind this design but it just seems like a very odd choice as far as transparency goes and I think that a plastic slipcase can look a lot better, even though the quality feels very nice and sturdy.


Disc contents / Extras

This disc appears to have all the special features found on the UK special edition except for one, and thus I think it should rank pretty equal.

A lot of the deleted scenes and other old behind the scenes material are however of very poor quality.

The material iteself however is very fun to look at, and it's definetly a worthy special edition despite the occasionally bad transfer.


Sidenotes

This is the initial pressing which featured the limited slipcase. The current special edition only comes with the regular keepcase but all the features are the same.

The film comes with it's original Burnt In Captions (which are so far only available on this release and the Korean R0 edition).

I just love the back with the coffee cup on the slip and then the stain on the keepcase. You know I want it.. I'm still thinking about the switch :D
