Those of you who have not yet made the switch to Blu-ray, but do intend to, what is your philosophy on this sale?
I expect to be Blu-ray by the end of the year give or take a month or two, but I can’t bring myself to buy Blu-ray DVDs this far in advance. There will be more sales down the line and I’ll have more money to spend. So, I’m looking at the available DVDs and considering three things:
1. Which do I want the most?
2. Which have I wanted the longest?
3. Which do I think have a very slim chance of being relased on Blu-ray?
Anyone else thinking like this?
Anyway, with that in mind I’m going with The Fire Within and Bob le flambeur for sure. Closely Watched Trains probably… Then, I dunno, maybe I’ll wing it on another one or two.
Does anyone think the three I’ve mentioned have a shot at being released on Blu-ray in the future? I’m sure if Blu-ray is as hugely successful as regular DVD Criterion might want to eventually try releasing all their movies in Blu-ray, but I don’t see that happening.
Is it available for Canada too?
Shotzi – I don’t think you have to worry about any of those three films getting released on BD anytime soon. If you look at the films Criterion has released so far on BD from their existing catalog, most of them have been more popular titles. My guess is that 8 1/2 and films like that are the most likely to get released on BD in the near future.
Picked up THE COMPLETE MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL and LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD yesterday. Will get REPULSION when it’s released, maybe the PIG, PIMPS, PROSTITUTES box set too at that time.
My dad comes home with my paycheck in 2 hours!!!!!
I got laid off from my work today which means I got a huge severence package! Might have to take a trip to that dreaded Grove tomorrow and see what they got shakin at the BN.
And I don’t start my new job (which is at a major studio – meaning free screenings and free DVDS!) for a week and half so it’s vacation time for me! Jesus, think of all the movies I can watch…
Seriously though, this sale couldn’t have come at a better time.
Army of Shadows
Stranger Than Paradise
I’m going to buy the two Godard coming soon films as soon as they come out.
Fredo, Agreed. Perfect timing.
Nothing better than a severance package when you already have a new job waiting for you. Spend away my friend.
just bought Kagemush! has anyone here seen it? good purchase?
I just picked up
Bergman’s Faith Trilogy
I’m high on Criterions and I can’t decide which one to watch!!!. Aaah the enless viewings those DVDs will get.
Army of Shadows
…maybe even something extra, with samourais in it.
Yes that is a reall good purchase, hats off to you.
You lucky bastard!
great cant wait to watch it…just sat through The Godfather 2 so i think im done with movies for the night haha maybe tomorow Kagemusha
Fredo; providence? maybe, just maybe.
I took Lona’s suggestion and picked up Night and Fog on my way home from work.
Here’s a list of what I own already:
Any canadians buyers here? Just to know how much hidden fees or something I should expect, considering the fact that we have to pay the shipping and the US$ to CAN$ conversion.
Is The Spirit of the Beehive worth a blind buy? I’m thinking about heading over there sometime this weekend
I think you’re right, Fredo, I just wanted someone to agree with me or see if maybe someone has some inside info I didn’t know about.
MontreaI QC. I bought 3 discs, each were $19.99 = $59.97. They charged $9.96 for Shipping and Processing and Tax was $3.00. TOTAL $72.93. I am assuming this is US Dollars even though I did go thru Barnes&Noble.ca
I picked the slow ship (was it 9-11 days?)
FYI I bought Mon Oncle Antoine which as you may know can’t be found in Quebec stores. Does anybody know why?
Thank you. I’m from Quebec too so it really gives me a good approximation. You can watch Mon Oncle Antoine on the official website of ONF, without subtitles: http://onf.ca/film/mon_oncle_antoine. A lot of Quebec’s masterpieces can be found on this website.
Yes. Great website. I haven’t thought to look for Kamouraska there. Thanks for the reminder.
