    Gentleman's Agreement Titanic Annie Hall Manhattan Sleeper Hannah and Her Sisters Wild River How Green Was My Valley All available for $8.99 on blu if your local has them. I already had a couple so I grabbed all but Annie and Manhattan. Thought a bit on Sleeper, even though I love Woody this one never really did much for me.

    Will try to pick up Hannah and Her Sisters. Too bad I recently bit on the Titanic 3D set via Best Buy's U&S deal, which still cost $15 w/ the deal. Maybe I'll still consider returning it for the Costco deal instead since I have no idea if/when I'll ever get 3D glasses for our DLP TV. _Man_

    Went into Costco yesterday prepared to buy any and all of the above titles, and they had NOT ONE of them. Hopefully there's just going to be a delay on these, because if they're really not coming into this store, it will be the first time we don't get what so many others are, and will represent a new low...because in addition to this, the depressingly small amount of space allotted to BLUs and DVDs has been even further reduced from what it was this past year. Time to drop a little note to the local manager.

    This is very frustrating. The store closest to me (upper Manhattan) has next to no Blus and DVDs, usually the latest Disney title, if that. And of course, there's no mail order on movies from Costco.

    As has been mentioned here, the Brooklyn Costco had all these titles in, when I was there last week.

    As I mentioned in the Costco inventory complaint thread, my local had a limited supply of 19.99 Criterions – Following, The Game and Rosemary's Baby. I also saw The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tree of Life for 9.99.

    It seems the Criterion dump is 1-2 times a year, I remember last time it was Merry Xmas Mr Lawrence, The Last Emperor and a couple more. This time I had the titles they had already so no help there. Seems that different stores locally get different levels of inventory, the Burbank store being better than Van Nuys here in the valley in LA. Hopefully we can all keep each other in the loop here :)

    Keep hoping Costco will get a deal on the Qaatsi trilogy, that's the only current Criterion I've got my eyes on.

    That is one of the last things I would ever expect to see in Costco. Your best bet is to look for the Barnes and Noble 50% off Criterion sale, probably next on this June or July

    Laura finally showed up at Costco, $9.99. Also found Red(Bruce Willis) The special edition with the extra and good sound for $7.99. Oh and the Hitchcocks have re appeared

    I didn't notice any Criterions at my warehouse, either, on Monday. Lots of BBC titles, though, and I also bought the RED blu-ray for $7.99, as Tony did.

    I doubt any Criterions would be on shelves now. Saw the Spider-man trilogy set in slip case and Ray Harryhausen set in slip case, both $30. The Robe and The Greatest Story Ever Told $10 each.

    The Robe for $10 would be worth it for me, I'm mainly buying it for the Cinemascope bonus features lol
