Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Thanks for the tip! Looks like a decent number of titles in there. Have to head off to work shortly but will look more closely later. Some of these prices match what I'd pay in the B&N sale with my AAA membership...

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Picked up;
Yojimbo & Sanjuro
Yi Yi
Blow Out
White Material
Kes
Le Cercle Rouge

All the April titles I wanted, the one other March title I had been meaning to pick up and something else I had been meaning to get in the form of Yojimbo/Sanjuro. This should hold me off now until the July B&N sale. Not like its out of pocket anyways.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

I ordered ;

Sweet Smell Of Success
Blow Out
Le Cercle Rouge

For me this pretty much equals the B&N sale, since I have Prime and No sales
tax on Amazon.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Picked up Seventh Seal (which actually was 90 cents cheap on a third party fufilled by Amazon) and Blow Out. Good good stuff.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Thanks, OP. Cheap upgrade for Yojimbo & Sanjuro, that's for sure.
Oh, and I also just posted a review for Blow Out...it's definitely a steal at that price!

Check your gold boxes, FYI - Blow Out is in mine for $18.04! I'm definitely picking that up, and possibly Sweet Smell of Success as well.

Lucky. I don't have anything in mine and this is the one I want for sure. Maybe Wings of Desire, too.

There are two ways. Look in the gold chest on the top of your screen, where it says "Today's Deals." Or when you are on the product page, on the right side where the Add to Cart button would be, it would have a big graphic that says "GOLD BOX DEAL! This item is available at a discount for a limited time." It sounds like it is most likely NOT in your Gold Box if you see the $18.99 price. It wasn't in mine...

That one was in my GB as well. Grabbed that along with Le Cercle Rouge and threw in IP Man for good measure. Thanks, BigDave.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

And now, as I always do, I'm regretting having already picked up some of the titles ("Kes," "Topsy-Turvy," "Senso") at $6 or $7 more because I felt I couldn't hold off until the next B&N sale. And of course I probably won't even watch any of them for a few months, at least.

I was still able to pick up:

The Mikado (BD)
White Material (BD)
Silent Naruse

All for $57.97
