    I already have That's Entertainment.
    Too bad it;'s missing content from the old dvd set.

    I did pick up the musical collection and for $18 it's a great bargain as it includes the 3D version of Kiss Me Kate.

    Also want to add that The 2 costcos near us do not have the CC sets yet.

    This is southwest Flo near Fort Myers.

    Is it really? I feel better about not waiting for BD, then. :)

    The latest Criterions never arrived at my Costco which is quite disappointing. Plenty of Disney though.

    I stopped by my local Costco yesterday and picked up the Criterion Ghost World and Woman of the Year and the new Beauty and the Beast. They also had Rumble Fish and Buena Vista Social Club but no other Criterions. They also had some Studio Ghibli titles on both Blu and DVD. I remeber seeing a few copies of Miss Hokusai and either Ocean Waves or Only Yesterday on Blu and The Secret World of Arietty on DVD. (I should have snapped a picture.)

    Their downsized media section is very disappointing but it has saved me money.

    Same here. My Costcos (Portland OR area) haven't stocked any Criterions at all in 2017. They must have sales statistics for each store and have discontinued stocking stores where they don't sell well.

    There certainly seem like there are more stores that don't stock them then do. If this is true about only stocking Criterions in certain stores, I wish Costco would provide a list of which stores stock them instead of making us fans search in vain.

    At my Costco today, I saw the same Criterion titles as mentioned by Suzanne above, except for BATB.

    Picked up the Dracula and Mummy sets for $24.99 each.

    I was at my Costco last week and saw all of these. Came close to picking up WOMAN OF THE YEAR but had no idea how good a film it was.

    The reissues are probably just rebranded.

    If that's the case wasn't there an issue with Magilla Gorilla missing opening credits?

    There are almost no DVD/Blurays left at my Costco, just about a single display with no more than 10 titles.....maybe. They are on their last legs here. Will soon Join Sam's and withdraw them altogether.

    I stopped by today and didn't see anything new or different than I saw two weeks ago. But on the way out, I filled out a comment card. I mentioned my disappointment in the downsizing of the DVD/Blu-Ray selection. I try to do that each time I am there if I have the time.

    What's amazing in my neck of the woods is that Walmart has as large a selection of DVD and Blu-rays as Best Buy. It wasn't that way 2 years ago.

    If they would only go through the trouble of classifying them... only the kids and tv videos are together. Everything else is just randomly placed on shelves.

    Hi Tony!

    Is the missing content part of the bonus features, or from the film itself? A missing bonus feature, I could live with, but to have anything missing from this wonderful 2 hour musical homage would seem like extreme sacrilege, in my view!

    CHEERS! :)

    Bonus features. I'd have to google it to see what's missing.

    My Costco had the first three seasons of Game of Thrones on blluray (sans DVDs) for $18.99 per season. The one that I looked at (season 3) has the newer Dolby Atmos mix.

    Also nearby was "Saban's Power Rangers" for $19.99 on bluray ...
