While visiting our local (100 miles away) Costco I was amazed to find a very small (4 titles) section of Criterion Blu-rays and picked up:
12 Angry Men-As a rule I love Criterion cover art and this one was fine for 11 out of the 12 portraits but either Martin Balsam was very difficult for the artist to capture or he picked up the wrong photo since the juror #1 looks like someone from a police artists sketch. Minor nitpick, since the rest of the package is up to the usual Criterion standards.

Very happy to finally own a copy of The Sting, and my pick for best flick of 2012 thus far...

Technically, by the movie's end, the title of the flick is "John Carter of Mars." ;-)
