They are worth owning. Great transfers and I have not regretted buying them.

Good. I love it when Twilight Time discs sell quickly because it means they can continue trading. I have zero interest in these two films but I'm glad others disagree.

It's nice t know that, whilst they're clearly going to sell out, they've not gone so quickly that anyone who wanted one might have missed it because they were ill for a few days, or away on holiday.

 

What are the fastest to sell out?

 

How many have lasted less than a week?

 I think "Christine" barely lasted the day it was released.

I was on the fence about purchasing these two films.  I decided to go ahead and take the plunge.  Anyone have any experience with Screen Archives?  I've never ordered from them before and was wondering how long it normally takes them to process the order and ship it.

About two days to process and a week to get it. At least that has been my experience.

Great!  So hopefully I'll be enjoying IAMMMMW during the first half of next week and Sinbad in the latter half.

 

Thanks for the info.

Shipping is better now that they've gone back to shipping via first class mail. My pre-order of Khartoum was shipped on Monday and arrived today.

Thanks for the info.  My order is still pending.  Hopefully things will speed up once the package gets to USPS.

FYI...

 

It looks like SAE is down to 130 copies of Golden Voyage.

In addition to the Sinbad discs:

 

December 26th -  Low Quantity Alert from Twilight Time! Less than 600 copies of Enemy Mine (1985) and Stagecoach (1966) remain.

Whew!! Ordered my copies of these yesterday. Thanks to Ernest for the heads-up!


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Hey, that was quick! I was on the Screen Archives web site yesterday, trying unsuccessfully to pre-order The Blue Max, and they had a message saying 50 were left.

 

It seems the standard pattern is that when stocks are really low, there is a last minute rush to buy. But who is buying? Enthusiasts who have left it too long or Ebay scalpers?

Probably both.  I waited until there were about 200 Golden and 400 Eye left.  $30 each plus shipping is hard to part with and I really had to be pushed.

If it's a title I want I order it the day pre-sales are up.

I missed out on these. Nobody's fault but mine - I just waited too long to order. I wonder if they'll ever be issued again on Bluray?

I enjoyed these so much that I ordered the Sony Blu-ray collection, which I passed on several years ago. Amazon had it and it will be here Thursday.

Now twilight, we need FIRST MEN IN THE MOON.

Eye of the Tiger is still available at the moment.
