re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

I'm just hoping that a few new titles are added to the mix before the sale ends on October 15th. There's still a couple on the current list I would like to own and a couple I might gamble on... It would have made much more sense to allow you to add additional titles at $10 as long as you reached the required 7. I guess there's a method to their madness.

At the Home Theater Forum a Twilight Time insider said he didn't believe more titles will be added before the sale ends. Of course he may be wrong and I am sure some one will post here if additional titles are added. Maybe shortly before sale ends they will lower the number of movies you need to buy to get the $10 price. That would be nice.

Despite the sale only a few of the $10 films have sold out.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

I received my order last night and previewed each disc....so happy with my purchase! I took a gamble on "Lost Horizon" because it was not received well upon its theatrical release but it is packed with A-list talent. I remember liking the late Bobby Van and his ditzy wife, Elaine Joyce when I was a kid so I watched the musical number "Question Me An Answer." Not only does it look like it was filmed yesterday, but it was reminiscent of the great Hollywood musicals like "The King and I." I can't wait to sit down and watch the film in its entirety. As I popped each disc in the player, I found myself wanting to continue watching—always a good sign. From what I could see and hear, each of these discs is a certified gem and the reviews here and other sites were a good measure of what to expect. I have to admit to being elated to own all of these at a bargain price.

Bite the Bullet
The Other
Lost Horizon
Love Is A Many Splendored Thing
The Way We Were
Pal Joey

Okay, it appears there is a mini-sale going on at the Twilight Time website—NOT SAE. Some of the titles are in the 7 for $70 bundle deal over at SAE but you don't have to buy multiples to get a discounted price. I picked up "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" for just $14.95. Great movie with the legendary Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn.

Twilight Time Movie Sale

Titles:

Alamo Bay $14.95
Bonjour Tristesse $14.95
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner $14.95
Vampires $19.95
Mindwarp $14.95
Royal Flash $14.95

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

SAE's is doing their November sale starting at 4pm eastern until December 6th but it's different than past where everything except recent stuff is $19.99 and then selected titles are below that.

So, this year (2016) (up to Jun) - 25% off
2014-2015 releases - 50% off
2013 and before releases - 75% off

http://screenarchives.com/display_re...TWILIGHT-TIME/

Problem is that I only have three Twilight Time titles on my want list, and two of them are after the June threshold (including Russia House which is actually pictured in site graphic oddly enough). The only one left, Hound of the Baskervilles, I was waiting for $20, not $22.50. I post it though since if I didn't have all of the 2015 and before titles I wanted, this is a great discount. Just kinda sucks for the early adoptees so to speak . I'll hold out for Twilight Time's official sale most likely.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

So basically everything from Royal Flash (Dec. 2013 release) and earlier will be $7.50? Even though I picked up multiples of a lot of those in the recent 7/$70 sale -- where they clearly still didn't sell out -- this could still add up.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

Please correct me if I am wrong, but they are automatically discounting the titles without your having to use a code, so when the sale is live a Twilight Time film label search with Price - low to high should turn up the $7.50 titles still in stock, right?

No code. Prices have already started dropping, and it's not even 4:00 yet.

I suspect THE SOUND AND THE FURY at $4.95 is a booboo folks might want to jump on.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

All prices should be live now. And actually to correct a statement from earlier, the 2016 titles are technically only ~23% off or 22.95. *grumble* However, the older ones are pretty darn good, I just wish I didn't have all the ones I wanted already.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

Grabbed 37 from the $4.95 / $7.95 / $8.95 batch. Like Kedrix, I also bought all the titles I wanted from the earlier sales -- sigh -- but reselling these will more than make up for it over the long haul. My wallet's telling me not to even look at the $14.95 titles, but the temptation is brutal . . .

I guess this sale is so popular that it freaking crashed the website. Still down.

Still working fine from here. Perhaps a different browser or some other workaround?

How do I know if a certain title was released in a certain year. Any idea how to check that info when selecting titles?

"I suspect THE SOUND AND THE FURY at $4.95 is a booboo folks might want to jump on."
It's been selling for $20 for quite some time, and 75% off is $5. IOW, it's legit! You only have to worry about it selling out, IMHO.

I picked up:

(2) Drums Along the Mohawk
(2) In Like Flint
(2) Oliver
(1) Jane Eyre
(1) The Sound and the Fury

All for 70.75.

I feel like a few of these will make great Christmas presents, but now I have to plant the seeds of interest, see if any sprout. At these prices, it's worth the risk of everyone saying "no thanks!"

Screen Archives TT listing defaults from newest to oldest, although the listings don't actually contain the release dates. Viewing at 100 items per page makes the price categories a little more obvious as you scroll down. $14.95 titles (2014-2015) kick in at Born Free, $7.95 titles (2011-2013) at Royal Flash.

Use a different browser. I had the same problem as you with Safari. I switched to Firefox and no probe.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

I'm currently playing around with adding titles to my cart and seeing what the shipping charges would be. $25 for 15 titles. Gonna add 50 movies and see what they would charge...


...about $80 for shipping. 100 titles would be only $145.96 shipping.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

I did a quick glance using a different browser.

The only titles that really interested me were 10 to Midnight, Murphy's Law and Eye of the Needle. Looks like only 10 to Midnight is on sale for 50%. The other 2 were still at full price.

I suggest Black Widow (Russell) & The Disappearance (Sutherland). Fairly good price.

THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY $14.95
THE SOUND AND THE FURY $4.95 (blind buy)
PHILADELPHIA (1993) $7.95
MINDWARP (1992) $7.95(blind buy)

Wanted a couple of others in the $14.95 & up range but decided to hold out for a future sale.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

The ones that are super cheap that I would want I already purchased for 19.99 during previous sales. The newer ones I would have bought for $19.99 are $22.95 or more. So while the sale looks good with lots of cheap Twilight Time titles, I have nothing to buy.

If they had been $19.99 or less I would have bought


CAT BALLOU (1965)

CUTTER'S WAY (1981)

ANASTASIA (1956)

BOUND FOR GLORY(1976)

$22.95 plus shipping is above what i am willing to spend.

I guess they finally sold out The Way We Were and Demetrius and the Gladiators during the bundle sale.

re: Twilight Time Blu-Ray Deals

I placed a full price order to get Harlock 3D for free only 6 months ago, 6 discs for only $162 delivered

Luckily looking at my previous orders, each one contains at least one disc that has gone out of print, so there is the positive there. But even at these prices, I have to resist unless I find that one or two must haves that I can fill an order around. Right now, I have everything that I want from them.
