I'm so confused. I can haz blu-rayz?
I can't believe I'm going to do this, but biannual is a correct term. Biennial is every 2 years
I like this sale. I start bidding on used discs on Ebay...usually clean house.
Yeah, the prices on eBay have been a bit high lately. Easy to wait til now for the sale and get new ones for the same or less. Something has to be like $3-4 cheaper used at least for me to get it used now. In August I'd consider paying more. It's also harder as you get close to having everything as the list of titles shrinks, less chances for random great deals as your needs become more specific
What did you do, attend William & Mary?
I think probably William or Mary or maybe it's a Canadian thing.
Or perhaps he happens to be a Harvard graduate...
Grabbed both The Man Who Knew Too Much and Things to Come in both blu ray and DVD editions. Plus The Blob blu ray, thanks Ron for mentioning it in another post. Got the Criterion DVD of The Blob several years ago.
Glad to help. Was so happy to finally get that film.
Most of the Criterion stuff is so obscure. Wish I could
think of something that would really interest me. There is
one film, JUBAL, that I have never seen and I hear it's a
very good western. Perhaps I will spring for that.
I have never paid full price for any Criterion release, nor
will I....with one exception....MAD WORLD will be mine on
day one and I'll gladly pay whatever Criterion charges.
Now back to the sale....
"Most of the Criterion stuff is so obscure."
Wow. I tend to think of Criterion as "picking and choosing what will sell" and ignoring the rest. Obscure is Tartan, IFC, Koch Lorber(the stuff Criterion wouldn't touch) and Spotlight.
Yeah, those companies release stuff that is far more obscure.
I suppose what I was trying to say is that I don't tend to find that
many Criterion titles that appeal to my tastes. However, my tastes
are more mainstream than most.
Not a knock against the company. Just that I rarely ever have the
urge to purchase a Criterion release. Bought 3 or 4 of their DVDs
in the past 15 years and I own only 2 of their Blu-rays (THE BLOBand SEVEN SAMURAI).
Good news is IF the speculation for a November release is correct, you could get it 1st day and at the 50+% discount --- always assuming
that BN continues it's normal sales patterns.
Ron if you have any interest in Godzilla, that's a great one to get. Excellent David Kalat commentaries on both versions
Oooh. The original Godzilla. Now that's an idea.
Okay. JUBAL and GODZILLA. I will see if they are
in stock locally. JUBAL is under $22 on Amazon right
now so I don't need to get that from B&N as I have a
Opposed to $13-16 at BN for Jubal depending on if you're a BN member or wish to try the 2 Month Free Trial and your local tax?.
None of the Criterion Hitchcock's for you Ron?
Glad the sale is lasting long enough for me to aquire The Ice Storm and possibly Babette's Feast on the 23rd. If they send an extra discount coupon I may finally spring for Fanny and Alexander.
I stand corrected on the spelling. Still prefer semi-annual as it avoids confusion. But whatever causes Criterion sales to occur more often is fine with me.
I was pretty pleased with only getting Shoah, Things to Come and Safety Last on blu. With the extension and adding in of Devils Backbone, it looks like I'll be making a second purchase!
Ron, I watched Jubal a couple weeks ago and it's a great western. Amazing performances all around. the 3:10 to Yuma disc is a great on as well quality wise though it's the only release I own and don't know if there is better to be had.
