    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:
