    I don’t see Pan’s Labyrinth at my Barnes and Noble store. Looking on their on-line store, it’s not listed there either. A box set of del Toro’s 3 films is on their on-line store. I see the Criterion Pan’s Labyrinth on Amazon for $22. Might get it there instead.

    I didn’t pick up too many titles this year.

    If you ever have trouble with BN search (not an unusual issue) -- usually the UPC works with the 12 digit though sometimes they use a 13 digit with a leading zero

    I think I’m finished, I made my 4th trip to Barnes and Noble today. Thanks again David, I was able to pick up Pans Labyrinth earlier this week.

    I picked up more titles then I planned, I only wanted Swing Time. But also got I Wanna Hold Your Hand and a title I had not heard of before called All That Heaven Allows. It looked interesting for a Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman title. In addition to Pans, I found kluge which I know of but is a blind buy, as is Kiss Me Deadly. I haven’t seen In The Heat Of The Night in a long time. Also I almost forgot I wanted to get the 1943 Heaven Can Wait which I saw years ago.

    I'm trying to place my final order for this round, but the site seems to be having some kind of checkout issue. Every time I hit the checkout button, I get a blank screen. I've tried it both on Safari and Firefox, same results.

    Edit: My bad. I missed that there was a note on one item saying it was out of stock and I must remove it from my cart in order to continue.

    Funny Games is very, very hard to watch. Well-executed film, but...

    You might check out Far From Heaven (not Criterion) which is an homage to Sirk, and particularly All That Heaven Allows.

    BTW, I know a lot of Kino titles are rather sub-par, but this one is top notch!

    Prizzi's Honor and The Doctor are ones that come to mind as being pretty soft, but I'm not one of those people who insist on every movie ever made looking like the latest digital release. I like the movies, but the image is fairly so-so. Prizzi's Honor is really pretty awful.

    I only picked up two titles -- Klute and In the Heat of the Night. I've got too many unopened Criterion discs, but I did also take advantage of the Arrow sale (Ronin, A Fish Called Wanda, Weird Science, Gosford Park, 12 Monkeys, and The Andromeda Strain) so I didn't really save any money. :rolleyes:

    Not much to add since the FLASH SALE ended, but first report of a customer having a B&N employee tell them that the fall sale should start on Nov 1. Just one report so far, but that was the most likely start date.

    I know with the B&N buyout being finalized there is more than the normal uncertainty about the usual Sale Pattern.
    That will be just about perfect with the Godzilla Box releasing 10/29

    Cleaned out most of my wishlist with the Flash Sale, but I left the digipacks to pick up in person -- Godzilla, Koker, and 3 Silents are at the top of the list, plus several if not all of the November releases. I'm not sure if I save those for in-store trips or just pick up the 1st batch and set up a Ship to Home order for the rest while I'm there.

    Hopefully that will also be in time to see if the usual Gift Card promos will run in Nov. $10 Promo card for buying $75 and even better the Black Friday 10 for 50 version later in the month. Usually have to stock up on those in November to make the December run of sales even better.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Fall sale.

    I’ll also be collecting the Godzilla set. And the Cary Grant Katherine Hepburn film Holiday too.

    I stand corrected David, I thought I saw on Amazon or another site that the disc of Holiday was going to be out in time for the sale.
