Would it be interesting to add a link to LD movies who had a Criterion release on DVD or BD?

I'm not only considering Criterion LD releases who eventually got a DVD or BD release, but also other titles who never had a Criterion LD release but bot blessed with a DVD or BD release later.

Re-release example:
Silence of the Lambs, The: Special Edition #192 (1991) [CC1344L] to https://www.criterion.com/films/528-the-silence-of-the-lambs

New release example:
Brighter Summer Day, A (1991) [PILF-1910] to https://www.criterion.com/films/28596-a-brighter-summer-day

this sounds great. I do have a question is this limited to the US releases for the non Criterion films that have a later day Criterion release such as Brighter Summer Day?

It wouldn't be limited to a release, I'd use the IMDb # to flag that a movie (or documentary, or TV program) got a Criterion release.

Any release (US or not) would be eligible for the "released on Criterion DVD/BD".

We could even do that for 4K BD releases as well.
Everybody is dumping their Gremlins LD in Japan now that the 4K BD is out.

Done!

Example with existing Criterion LD: Silence of the Lambs, The: Special Edition #192 (1991) [CC1344L] or 39 Steps, The #3 (1935) [CC1103L]

Example with no Criterion LD: When We Were Kings (1996) [ID3978PG] or Dreams (Yume): Akira Kurosawa's (1990) [NJL-11911]

Added 400+ Criterion links based on IMDb, there are more to add but I'm getting dizzy copy/pasting!

It will show quickly which Criterion LD were re-released on DVD/BD:

Which CinemaDisc LD made it as well:

Most Kurosaza as well!
