Prospective purchasers should note that the R4 will be going on sale almost straight after its initial release. It will cost about $25 (10 quid).

Just watched this for the first time. I was worried I'd find it boring. (Generally I think newer films are better than older ones).

Not this time - Casablanca is exceptional. Very dramatic, and well acted. Great tension too as I didn't know how it would end. Worthy of all the praise IMHO.

Why? What criteria are you using that enables you to be so general?

Casablanca is marvellous indeed.

Certainly one of those films that can be described as timeless.

I had this in my dvd collection for years, one of those titles you hear you 'have to own', so I picked it up but never got round to watching it. Stuck the disk in with a little bit of reservation that comes when you are about to watch a film that pretty much everyone, everywhere describes as a classic.

Sat through the whole film with a big grin on my face Its just a wonderfully made film, where all the pieces just fit effortlessly - direction, story, setting, cast etc. Its rare for me to watch a film branded as a classic and come away feeling totally satisfied, but Casablanca did this.

I really need to pick this up in HD, as the transfer is supposed to look stunning. Probably will do when the release it without all the extra bits and bobs.

I'm the exact opposite. At least when it comes to American cinema; for me Hollywood peaked somewhere around 1940... Probably 1939 (for Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz).
