I disagree, it’s part of the “let’s make more money from collectors so there’ll be more of these movies on home video”
Granted, 109 bucks is excessive, so is 40 bucks for Django. But most of these companies make little profit from these niche releases, so one way to ensure that they can continue those classic cult movie lines is by tapping the premium market, i.e. following a Criterion strategy. At least in parts… I’m split on these questions but I prefer an amazing release to a measly 9,99 one any day if it means that movie hasn’t ever gotten this much love since it came out in theaters.
