America Lost and Found: The BBS Story on Blu-ray.
That should keep you busy for a while.
Yeah . . . it’s a great set.
Sansho the Bailiff
The Tin Drum
The Hidden Fortress
Only Son/There Was A Father set
I still have some money left over so there might be some seconds. Any ideas on what I should pick up if I do go back for seconds?
If you have any interest at all in Vigo that set is outstanding.
The Phantom Carriage
Island of Lost Souls
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Identification of a Women
12 Angry Men
The Seventh Seal
The Music Room
Jean Vigo box set
Battle of Algeirs
missed out on White Material, love the suppressed hysteria under floral dress.
I just found the BRD Trilogy at a Barnes & Noble in Fargo. I just stopped in on a road trip to get an audio book and turns out it was my lucky day. 50% off plus 10% for being a member, came to $36 for an OOP boxset!
I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this, but don’t own a single movie from the Criterion Collection. If I were to buy one, though, it would undoubtedly be the Blu-ray edition of Days of Heaven. I rented it through Netflix and thought it was gorgeous, but I haven’t gotten a chance to see the extra features, and that’s part of the reason to have a Criterion version in the first place!
The Red Shoes and Black Narcissus on blu-ray.
Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line (blu-rays).
I got the BBS set on behalf of my parents to give me in a month for my birthday.
And then I may pick up two of the following at some point…
-The Exterminating Angel
-Smiles of a Summer Night (Blu)
And if available…
Over the weekend p/u The Complete Jean Vigo ($15), and 10 Years of Rialto Pictures 10 DVD box set ($50)….already have 2 titles from the Rialto set as stand-alone discs, but at $5 per DVD….
Yesterday I stumbled upon a new copy of RAN priced at retail. Gotta love Kim’s Video. Had to buy it.
Just bought Dazed and Confused on blu-ray tonight :)
I just picked up:
The Magic Flute
The Taking of Power by Louis XIV
The Complete Jean Vigo
Kenji Mizoguchi’s Fallen Women
Dusan Makavejev Free Radical
Written on the Wind
I luckily had a 25% off one item but found out that the cashier put 25% off on each item!
I picked up these guys on blu ray this weekend:
The Red Shoes
Fanny and Alexander
The Phantom Carriage
The Great Dictator
Bigger than Life
I recently got Identification of a Woman and the Chantal Akerman Eclipse set via the B&N sale. Excited to dig into both.
Playtime & The Killing
Whilst cleaning my room, I found a 25$ Gift Card to Barnes & Noble. I don’t think I could forgive myself if I DIDN’T use it for the November Criterion Collection sale. The question is: what movie should I buy? I’d really appreciate some suggestions. Opportunities like this don’t fall in your lap every day, so I need to make my decision count.
I’m considering these:
Days of Heaven (Blu-ray)
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Blu-ray)
Crucially, I haven’t actually seen Solaris, so I’m risking buying something I won’t like. Is it worth it, or should I rent it before purchasing?
Just so you have a point of reference, I’m looking for movies with striking visual styles. Thanks in advance for any recommendations you may have.
@Spencer – if you haven’t seen Solaris, I’d rent/Netlfix it first.
Also, if you’re looking for striking visuals, I’d say Malick is pretty safe. You could grab either Days of Heaven or The Thin Red Line. Or perhaps Wings of Desire?
Dr. Strangelove, Red Shoes, Thin Red Line, 2001 Space Odyssey, 8 1/2, Amarcord
2001 and Strangelove have Criterion versions?
THE GREAT DICTATOR
KISS ME DEADLY
ISLAND OF LOST SOULS
AKI KAURISMAKI’S LENINGRAD COWBOYS !
I hit up Amazon for Essential Art House Vol 2. Half of the box is OOP and “Tales of Hoffman” is my only duplicate. At $29.99, I couldn’t say no.
Kiss Me Deadly
Josef von Sternberg trio, Cecil B. DeMille’s King of Kings and Douglas Sirk’s All That Heaven Allows.
I’ll start the Valentine’s Day Sale posts.
Three Outlaw Samurai
Belle Du Jour
all on Blu
Kes. Outstanding Picture. Hope to get more Criterion films in the future
Haven’t seen The Magician… so I hope I like it.
