    Digital Movie/TV Deals

    I decided to pick up all of five of the Arrow Sartana films as well, Scott. Blind buys for me. Hopefully neither of us will be disappointed. :)

    I'm tempted to pick up The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for $5, and I'm a Gilliam fan for the most part. Any opinions of the film to share?

    I think this film suffers from the fact that it's a remake of such a classic movie. It's ALWAYS going to compared to the original. But, Carpenter went there, and he didn't deliver. For me. If only he'd brought his A-game on VotD like he did with The Thing.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The Great Escape (1963) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Opinions on art are like, well, you know. Everybody has one. Completely subjective. Put me in the camp that loves a lot of Criterion's newer cover art, including this one. It's nice to see some fresh life getting breathed into these classic films. It would be nice if they included a reversible...
