I was really glad to see the Metrograph Taiwan/Hong Kong titles (bottom three) in the sale. I didn’t realize they were distributed by Kino (or else just never noticed them on the site) and have been saving them in my Amazon cart waiting for a deal because I didn’t know where else to look, and Metrograph doesn’t sell them on their own site. They’ve been promoting some of Hong Kong ‘New Wave’ director Patrick Tam’s important early films theatrically recently, so I’m hoping that’s a sign of upcoming Blu-ray editions.

Your link works. When I browsed the 30 title sale, it wasn't listed; & a site search only brought up a "student & library edition". the

Are these all Lupino's? I may have to dip into the wallet if that's the case.

Thanks! I had no idea that Kino's Lupino box had gone oop. I also was sure I owned it, but it's not on my spreadsheet & I can't find it. I do have separate blu-rays of the 4 films in the box.

I talked myself into it:
The Suspect (Blu-ray) $7.99
Mr. Wong Collection [Mr. Wong, Detective/The Mystery of Mr. Wong/Mr. Wong in Chinatown/The Fatal Hour/Doomed to Die] (Blu-ray) $24.99 (I hope this is an upgrade from the Roan DVD)
23 Paces to Baker Street (Blu-ray) $6.49
Night People (Blu-ray) $5.99
Peter Ibbetson (Blu-ray) $8.49
Sub-Total: $53.95 Tax: $0.00 Shipping: $0 Total: $53.95

No no, only 4 in that list are Lupino. ‘The Hitch Hiker’, ‘Not Wanted’, ‘Never Fear’, ‘Woman in Hiding’ (from the box set). And then ‘Outrage’ as was pointed out

She also directed a couple more in the sale list.

Re: Kino Lorber & KL Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals

btw - that is an EXCELLENT haul. Have/Seen lot of them. FWIW - here are my thoughts.
  • Pool of London is an excellent British film, but the PQ was disappointing. Great interview with one of the stars.
  • Alec Guinness double feature was very enjoyable.
  • House on 92nd St is classic Noir
  • Western Union/Rawhide are great westerns (no Yellow Sky? Maybe you have that? I thought that was great)
  • No Highway in the sky. Many didn't think much of that, but I enjoy anything with Dietrich!
  • Third Lover is a very disturbing french psycho-thriller by Claude Chabol
  • Leon Morin is the film that got me interested in Melville. Great film
  • The Night my number came up was like an expanded Twilight Zone episode - and I say that as a compliment.

They should let you have it at the sale price if you had it in your cart. Sorta like layaway. OK, I'm just talking pissed.

  • Pool of London is an excellent British film, but the PQ was disappointing. Great interview with one of the stars. - Hope to enjoy it, didn't find the earlier SC release at a good price.
  • Alec Guinness double feature was very enjoyable. - curious about this one, haven't seen either.
  • House on 92nd St is classic Noir - this is a solid one that I have seen, just didn't have it.
  • Western Union/Rawhide are great westerns (no Yellow Sky? Maybe you have that? I thought that was great) - Have the Odeon release of 'Yellow Sky' and love it. Believe it or not, the DVD of 'Rawhide' in the Fox Western 3 pack (along with 'Garden of Eden' and 'The Gunfighter') is incredibly well done. An upscaled viewing of Rawhide and Gunfighter from that set makes for an enjoyable experience with great black levels, contrast and superb sharpness. Fox did an awesome job on that 3 pack DVD. Didn't want to miss out Rawhide on BD. Have 'Western Union' digibook from the German Koch release.
  • No Highway in the sky. Many didn't think much of that, but I enjoy anything with Dietrich! - Haven't seen this one, looking forward to it
  • Third Lover is a very disturbing french psycho-thriller by Claude Chabol - Strange thing happened after the first attempt at this order. PayPal declined the transaction. When re-ordering, I backed out of some of the French titles from the original order, this was one of them. Will probably order at a later date if still available.
  • Leon Morin is the film that got me interested in Melville. Great film - Same as the above, on my second re-order attempt, dropped this title as I had the Criterion
  • The Night my number came up was like an expanded Twilight Zone episode - and I say that as a compliment.- looking forward to viewing this as well

Re: Kino Lorber & KL Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals

I received an email earlier today stating that MARK OF ZORRO is no longer in stock and was removed from my order before the rest were shipped. Fortunately I already own a copy and this was just an ‘extra’ for resale, so no big loss. Not sure if anyone else ordered it and received it, but hopefully you did as it’s a great film.

Is Underworld aka Transmutation a good buy?, Seems like the reviewer on the other site liked it but everyone else on imdb doesn't.

Re: Kino Lorber & KL Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals

I am waiting for an order from Kino from early last week UPS/USPS. USPS has no record of the tracking #. UPS stated, there is a delay. After jumping through hoops, I learned there was a "train derailment" & they have no idea when it might arrive.

I filled up 3 similar units years ago... I now use 32 gallon Sterilite totes. They'll hold ~90 DVDs or ~120 BRs (there are over 60 of those - they hold the TV stuff as well). I label the tote and put the number of the tote in the database as the storage location so I can find the disc later. The only thing my shelves now hold is the mountain of unwatched stuff. My wife is *never* happy to see a box/package arrive that looks like it could have discs inside.

If you intercept the boxes before she sees the labels, you could 'hint' that one or both of them might be a surprise birthday or Christmas gift, then shoot her an innocent, loving smile and pretend you're running off to hide it for the big day. Once the discs are up on the shelves or in the totes, she surely won't notice.

Regarding the totes, I'm pretty sure you or someone here has posted links/pics of those before. I get them at Target for about $8 each when I'm in the U.S. I've been using them too for several years now, mainly because I'm in an apartment and just don't have room to put up shelves (and partly because I'm oddly not fond of big displays of physical media). I have about 20, plus a bunch of older, bigger, deeper totes containing a ton of unwatched stuff, but the few keepers go into the Sterilites. I do sometimes have to work my way down a tower of them to find something, but I find that easier than rooting though similar towers of larger totes each stacked three layers deep with movies.

Re: Kino Lorber & KL Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals

My "Train Derailed" package showed up today. No damage, other than they put a slip cover at the very top of the pile, & while opening the box I put a very thin slice in the cover (GRR). And it was the side of the box without an invoice; i.e. the side one would think to open.

Re: Kino Lorber & KL Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals

In case anyone in addition to me cares, I just did a QUICK comparison between the best of the DVD set's (the out of print Roan) & the Kino blu. I just checked the 1st film. Kino is sharper due to the 28mbs bit rate as opposed to 7 mbs (not bad for a dvd). Unfortunately, Roan used a MUCH HIGHER QUALITY print. Not sure which will become my "go to". Really depressing that Kino used such a crummy print. I would not want to watch the Kino on DVD, it would be quite inferior to the Roan.

Also the Roan has one extra film, "Phantom of China Town", where Jimmy Keyes replaced Karloff (the last of the series). Neither The Kino or the Roan includes the Bela Lugosi Spinoff.
