    Supposedly, Criterion Collection releases are supposed to be top-quality transfers with lots of extras. The only one I have are The Rock and Chasing Amy...the rest are a little on the "artsy" side I believe. Lots of extras on the rock, it was well worth it IMO (even though I already owned the regular dvd).

    The Criterion releases have slightly better video transfers...and more extras.
    However, i still dont think they are as good as the Superbit releases. DTS, Simple Menu's, and Video quality that will make you drool. Personally, i could care less about extras, id rather have the quality. Though alot of the new Superbit movies are being released with a seconed suplimentary disk with the extra featurs on it.
