STEVEN SEAGAL IN THE CRITERION COLLECTION??? [TRAVIS PREDICTS!]

 

…Okay, not really — But now that I have your attention:

Ryan was oh-so thoughtful enough to give me a Christmas gift he just knew I’d LOVE in Steven Seagal’s 2004 straight-to-DVD masterpiece Out Of Reach.   Upon removing the plastic and taking the DVD from its absurdly-awesome holographic sheathe, I noticed something…peculiar…that got me thinking.   Full-aware that no one would ever believe me unless I procured photographic evidence, I snapped a quick shot with my sub-par camera phone.

I realize it’s a stretch, but doesn’t that DVD…just maybe…kinda sorta…if you look at it just right…have the patented Criterion C on the disc?

Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my behalf.   Maybe it’s wishful packaging on behalf of Sony Pictures.   It seems to me, though, that someone else out there in the world might just share my unflappable adoration for this preeminent auteur. 

My level of certainty:   0.000348%

If we were to see a Seagal Criterion release, though, I predict it to be the first in their catalogue with a hologram/prism slip.

Travis George

Travis George was born and raised in Carteret County, a seaside community in North Carolina's Outer Banks. In 2005, he made the inevitable twentysomething's pilgrimage to Portland, Oregon, where he studied American Sign Language and otherwise busied himself with the various cultural curiosities of the Pacific Northwest. In 2006, he began (inadvertently) to watch solely the films of the Criterion Collection. His marathon came to completion on June 18th, 2009 (at 477 films), and he continues to remain current with the new releases His arrangements and social relationships have suffered greatly.

Travis makes a living delivering medical supplies, and plays in a folk band called The Ivonrose Family Jamboree (www.myspace.com/ivonrosefamjam). He is currently drafting a web comic which will launch in the upcoming month or two.
