Just received this e-mail offer from Film Movement. I know there's been interest in the past Film Movement deals. This works out to $8.34 a disc. There past deals were actually open to anyone. Since I'm a member I can't test to see if someone can start a new membership for $100 but there is a good chance it will work.

Seems like a lame deal on lamer films. The average price on Columbia House account cycling is like 5.50 and you get movies you'd actually like to see.

why?

It just seemed like more of an advertisement than a bargain. I guess if the poster is really into this, than go for it.

It's is the advertisement from the e-mail they sent me. I don't work for them. While I may not like every film the offer I am interested in their world wide offering of films. It's goes well beyond what Columbia House has to offer.

I think its a decent deal. I signed up a year ago with a coupon for a little less. i watched the films then sold them for more than I paid. So I say this deal is worth it if you like their movies.

Thanks SterlingBen. I stand corrected on the depth of Columbia House's catalog of foreign movies. At a quick glance it doesn't appear they carry the Film Movement titles so my post still stands! : )

I subscribed to Film Movement about a year ago. I enjoyed the films, but was quite disappointed that they chose to eliminate the packaging and send the discs in a sleeve. The bang-for-buck factor at that point made it such that I didn't feel it was worth it anymore and didn't renew.

If you do subscribe, be sure to go to "My Account> Subscription>"
and uncheck "enable auto renew." A year from now, auto renew starts to charge you $15 a month.

What is the quality of the "new cases?"

From Film Movement:
"The new cases are environmentally friendly and similar to the style utilized for Criterion Collection DVD's. They are made of high quality heavy recycled cardboard and soy based ink."

I have been a subscriber since May 2006. I have yet to receive a DVD that had special features beyond the short film of the month--no extras pertaining to the film itself. I've enjoyed most of the films, but it's irksome that they advertise special features but never produce any.

The new cases are thin, made of cardboard, and they don't close so that you can't stand them up as dust will collect on the top of the disc. I have to stack them on top of each other which does save space.

Jah-Wren Ryel

Can the new cases be easily repurposed as inserts for traditional cases? Either full-size amaray style, or better yet, the new slim style that many boxsets use now?
