Of course, the BD covers were inaccurate on the old version of the site, as they were all in DVD cover dimensions.

Oh, I totally suppose actually not too many people are interested in that, but I wonder what the advantage of the new version is compared to the older one, especially since it doesn't look like there is more elements to load now. So it just seems like a small step backwards on this one, but yeah, probably not many people will regret this a lot. I suspect most people just use the research bar and look for movies this way anyway.

Well, I guess "less is more" applies here. It'll take a little getting use to.

Most certainly. Just like we got around, in the end, the Arrow revamping (though they have made additional adjustments later on).

At least my bookmarks to individual titles still seems to work, which is all I need for the inevitable autumn sale.

is there any option to view films by categories other than genres? Like for example "avant-garde"? Also I find it harder now to see individual films in bigger box-sets, like for example I can't see now all the films included in the Les Blank box (the link is broken)

It looks flashy but not really a fan of the functionality. I like searching films through years and decades and I find it less user friendly than the previous site.

Just went to criterion.com for the first time in a while today, and this is pretty much my reaction. Impossible to navigate compared to the old site. Can't figure out where anything is.
