although i rarely buy Criterion titles i must admit i love how Criterion recently started releasing more recent popular titles that i'm aware of not just obscure titles.In the past Criterion released many obscure titles and very few popular classics but now each month you get different mixture of recent,popular and obscure titles which is great.
"There's this whole school of thought that movies are always so great when you're 10 or 12 years old, and the reality of it is, when you're 10 or 12 years old, you've only seen 100 stories. By the time you get to be 25, you've seen 3,000. You've seen every permutation of every dramatic arc. And when somebody takes that and stands it on its head, that can be exciting." David Fincher

The studios are realizing that DVDs and blu-ray are not where the revenues are anymore -- it's VOD and Online Streaming (license fees). They are now more open to licensing newer and important catalogue titles to Criterion. It was and always has been about the money. Criterion is no different: newer titles allow it to be more "hip" and profitable.
