    Criterion 50% sale on again at B&N. These happen so regularly now, why would anyone pay full price?

    They have been for several years now; pity that new Criterion Designs book isn't part of the sale... :cry:

    Thanks - unfortunately, I recall their intntl shipping being rather pricey; and to be fair, it IS 28% off at B&N... I just don't have enough money to spend on all the nice things! :x

    Just ordered Eraserhead on bluray. I have it on dvd already. I think this will be the version I finally make my wife watch (and see if she divorces me over it :lol:)

    She said she is game, but I don't think she knows what she is getting herself into.

    I can't imagine anyone who watches Eraserhead reluctantly is going to care much for it. Maybe start her on Twin Peaks? ;)

    Just updated my Repo Man to bluray. I love these sales they do. I would have done Naked Lunch but I'm hoping they update the packaging on that one.

    Just bought "Eclipse Series 28: The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara." I can't get enough of the Eclipse sets. They're like the best-kept-secret of Criterion. So many buried treasures in there.

    Seems like it's been awhile since the last one, but I'm told B&N will start a Criterion 50% off sale July 5th.

    Arrow Films are also having a pretty much everything 50% off sale right now - finally had to pick up most of the Bavas and a few other gems.

    Thanks @bunnyboy! I've never ordered any of those Arrow films, but man, seems like they actually have quite a nice catalogue. How would you rate the quality on them, something on par with Criterion or Masters of Cinema?

    Arrow does a great job with their releases, Steve. Excellent video and sound quality on every disc of theirs that I've been able to check out, and they have a real dedication to quality extras. Their edition of Shivers, my introduction to the company, is the one to beat.

    EDIT: As if it wasn't already obvious from a quick skim, Arrow's dedication to genre cinema leaves Criterion and MoC squinting in the dust.

    @ultrakaiju I somehow never got around to order from them until now, but I've been keeping an eye on their releases for a while and finally had to give in. But like David already confirmed, it appears that their releases are indeed on par with Criterion and MOC; I've read nothing but praise. Search the site for "limited" and you'll be kicking yourself hard...

    Thanks guys, there is a lot there I would love to buy. As always, the difficult thing is narrowing down the choices. There are quite a few cult classics I haven't seen mentioned on DVD/BD in some while, if they ever were, so that gets me excited. And oh, those limited editions, you are so right man.

    FYI - I just received the confirmation email that B&N does indeed have the usual 50% off sale until Aug 1st, which works for US folks anyways.

    Haha, we need to start a SB movie exchange club - no sense in us all duplicating up on all these titles, just think of the combined library we could have if we put our efforts together! :dam:

    Thanks to the wonders of Hulu and Criterion....and my girlfriend's knowledge on asian horror, I was finally able to watch House. Crazy bizarre but totally worth the watch. And because of all these dvd discounts everywhere, we may have to pick up!

    Next Barnes & Noble 50% off Criterion sale will be November 1st - 28th. Good time to get some recent and forthcoming box sets. I went totally nuts for the prior sale and told myself I'd try to be more disciplined for the next one, but ... argh! Really want the Zatoichi series on blu-ray, and the forthcoming Lone Wolf and Cub set is a must-have!

    I just realized I still have a shitload of unwatched stuff from the last sales... Recently dove into the Nikkatsu Noir box, I Am Waiting is fucking fantastic. Cool, bleak & stylish to no end; highly recommended, can't wait to check out the rest!
