Criterion sale

Tools    





Criterion is a lot cheaper in the US than in Canada. Here each Blu Ray are more than 30$. I prefer buying 3 movies than 1 for that price.
I think they're ridiculously priced over here, I agree with you. For me, B&N is the only place to buy them in store, and they're usually around forty dollars just for a standard release, which I don't know if I could ever do.

You can always get them online, some for even cheaper than the sale prices at B&N, but I just usually wait until these things until I actually buy them anyways. They seem to only happens a few times a year, and it gives me an excuse to go hog wild on them at one time.



"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



Exterminate all rational thought.
Are they $30 originally in Canada or is that a sale price? Do you have B&N in Canada? Sorry if that seems like a stupid question.

I picked up 3 more today:

Gomorrah
La Haine
and Island of Lost Souls

That brings my take to 25 during the sale and I am done!

The Criterion release for The Devil's Backbone is fantastic BTW. It looks and sounds pretty damn good! So happy they released that, I just wish the book were a bit bigger, but that's ok the on-disc supplements are quite hefty!

I almost always get them from Amazon or on eBay. And I go crazy during the Half off sales at B&N as I have a link for the coupons plus my membership discount and my convenient location of having access to 5 different stores within a few minutes of my work and home. The $40 regular price is absolutely ridiculous no matter how great a movie it is, although I am an idiot that spent waaaay too much on a copy of The Third Man and less but also too much on a copy of Pierrot Le Fou. I also have access to 3 used movie stores around here and have been lucky enough to find some very cheap ($15 for Army of Shadows about a month before it went OOP!), or waited until it sat on the shelf for a few months and talked them into lowering the price to move it.

Edit for clarity: I buy them in groups of 3 to get the price over $50 so I can use the B&N $5 off $50 coupon plus my 10% member discount I pay $17.48 for each movie with tax in-store, which is a great price for a brand new blu-ray.



I ordered this Criterion while the sale is still on:

Aww it's ended. Anyone who has ordered The Devil's Backbone, are you having problems with out of stock/no stock? They are saying they are having trouble getting stock. Hope it doesn't fall through because it's really expensive now.

This happened to me before, don't remember which film, but the date on which your order was placed is what counts. And if not, just ask for a refund and buy it again in the November sale.

Sheeeeeet I forgot Ministry of Fear..



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
She ordered them online. The movies cost $50, shipping was free and it's local so it should take no more than two days to get here. She just had to pay about $4 (7 3/4 %) in sales tax.



Just a word of warning, don't buy their Madame de... Blu-ray, it's shlt. Someone should get fired for it.

I got a dispatch e-mail today at the same price I pre-ordered it for, so it's on its way.

After all, horror is usually concerned in some way with death, and romance is concerned with love, but love and death and how one is bound up in the other is the very essence of gothic.



*Listens to Jingle Bells for the first time*
Pretty awesome, I won't be buying anything this time though as I'm saving up for a pad controller.
