Blu-rays I'm considering for this sale....

36 Hours
A Patch of Blue
Billy Budd
Ride the High Country
Summer Stock
Young Man With a Horn

I haven't actually seen any of these. On the other hand I've already got several blu-rays on my shelves that I haven't watched even once, and I promised myself to watch them before I got more.

Welcome Ben! Club meetings were on Tuesdays. The vice-president (we've put off electing the president until maybe next year) has decided to put off regular meetings until a later date ;)!

All quite good; the Peckinpah is the pick of the pack. Go for them.

I had a lot of fun watching 36 Hours, but was very disappointed by Ride The High Country and sold it after watching it. YMMV, of course!

Was that because of the BD transfer or because of the film’s story? I find RTHC one of the best westerns of the 1960s

I just didn’t care for the film. The transfer itself was of high quality. Unfortunately, as much as I wish it were otherwise, Peckinpah hasn’t been my cup of tea.

I just ordered all the "Thin Man" movies, along with "42nd Street", "Golddiggers of 1933", "S.O.B.", "In The Good Old Summertime", and "Looker".

The sort function on the https://www.moviezyng.com/warner website is worthless. Try to sort by Newest Products and all you get is a random list.
Sometime in the last month they updated the site and broke a bunch of stuff. The sort by Release Date was functioning fine up to 4-6 weeks ago. Unfortunately this was my most useful filter. Luckily I have a separate spreadsheet to use to find items I want -- by UPC or by name. Functioning more like Amazon every day it seems -- at least teh sort by price, title, and other filters seem to work (even those don't work well on the Multitrillion Dollar website)

For other sites with similar issues including Amazon I often just use Bluray.com database or Deep Discount with a studio/release date in a sidebyside tab.

When I can't find a title on Amazon, I'll go to Best Buy and copy the UPC from there, then paste it into the Amazon search box.

Sure -- or from DD or from bluray.com, but why work that hard to find something on Amazon. As a general rule, Amazon is my last choice to buy almost anything that I can get elsewhere unless the price is drastically better than anywhere else which rarely is the case.

Why does their search function worse than even most barely existing websites? The starting point was a complaint was about MZ site search being poor, but even half broken its still more useful than a 3 trillion dollar company's site. When MZ was working correctly (not that long ago) it was actually pretty good which can't be said of Amazon and since MZ's was actually had a functional filter there is a fairly high probability that it will be fixed.

All this is esp galling considering Amazon is supposedly the OFFICIAL WA Website now. Even if you can actually find the WA Storefront (I had to bookmark it since I can't find a simple way to get there from the actual Amazon front page), then it's virtually impossible to pull up a list of WA releases (not sure it's possible to pull up the entire BD catalog), then like most Amazon pages it's limited to around a dozen titles per page, and has virtually no filtering capability at all. Try to find the lowest priced or newest release or latest price drops? It barely even alphabetizes the list

If you know what you want then it's not so bad to find, but for actually browsing I find it maddeningly awful
Deep Discount I can pull up the entire catalog of WA titles, up to 250 per page, filter by format, filter by release date or price or title. I've heard people complain about B&N search, but for for their spotlight brands/groups I find their search/filtering to be quite good just slow ( Criterion, Arrow, Cohen, British TV, etc) . At least it can do 40 items per page which prevents the nonstop Next Page quality of Amazon -- 300 items shouldn't need 20 pages

Thanks for the note pointing out the "newest title" sort issue. I'm manage Movie Zyng. The issue is only affecting the promotional page listing the 1521 titles on sale. That said, it needs to work properly. I am working with our software support team to get that corrected.

Reason 62 to use MZ's site to order WAC titles.

@TheModFather (took me a couple looks to catch on to the user name) Welcome to this site Blair. I think I've emailed you a couple times and responded to you at least once over on Bluray.com.

One question that has come up again is possible EU shipments. I know you guys were hoping to have that up by May 1, but apparently it got pushed back. There are quite a few EU folks who are dying to be able to put in orders, but aren't able to without the large extra expense of using a shipping forwarder. Apparently there isn't a current retailer who is willing/able to ship to the EU at any reasonable cost so those folks have multi year backlogs just waiting to jump on a chance to order.



Reason 63 -- I went ahead and placed an order at 1:30Pm. Dispatch notice and tracking number at 3:30pm.

Hi David. Thanks for the note. Regarding EU, the delay is due to having to get all the pre-paid VAT collecting in place. This was due to the EU changing their VAT requirements last year. We're testing things this month. I hope to have EU activated by end of September and in time for our next big Archive sale. We don't have one scheduled, but am hopeful we'll get the needed support from WB to do another one. Will keep you posted.
