There's nothing quite as sexy for a movie-nerd as the beckoning allure of a Criterion Collection DVD. These have the same effect on geeks as the sirens had on those poor bastards in Homer's Odyssey. There's a wonderful blog called The Criterion Contraption where a brave soul reviews and discusses every single Criterion release so far. He's a pretty decent writer and obviously has a lot of fun discussing the films, so I highly recommend the blog.
