People don't pay much attention to the name of the studio on a DVD. (Nobody I know says, for instance, "Let's go rent a Paramount movie tonight.") The single exception, of course, is the Criterion Collection, which has marketed itself as a boutique brand, touted-and deservedly so-for its classic catalog, fastidious transfers, and superb commentaries, booklets, and other "special features."One thing Kaplan fails to mention is that Warner's DVDs usually cost a lot less than Criterion's, especially when you can get them in box sets.
Now it's time to take note of another logo that almost guarantees high quality-Warner Home Video. At least since 2002, the video division of Warner Bros. has released one great-looking DVD after another. I know of no other label, in fact, whose output has been more consistently spectacular.
