re: Kino Lorber Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals
 
If I remember right, Kino charges when the order is placed, not when it ships- or am I incorrect?

If so, I'd be tempted to place a $100+ order containing some pre-orders that won't ship till after my next CC billing cycle.

Also, there are some great prices on a couple of items I particularly wanted- but I seem to recall prices fluctuating/being raised subtly during the course of previous sales.

Thank you for posting! Because I've got the majority pf these I want, what I perceive as frequent lower quality transfers, & these prices aren't that great; I'm going to pass.

I will say I never thought I'd see the day when blu's were priced lower than dvd (in most cases with this sale) !

I might have to pick up a few of those. There are some that are priced way too high on Amazon that I wanted. Here they're like 50-60% off what Amazon is selling them for.

Fritz Lang Silent Film set is about $80 on Amazon, as opposed to $112.46 on Amazon.

On the other hand, The Big Country is $5 cheaper at Kino Lorber, and The Woman in the Window is about 1/2 Amazon's price at Kino Lorber.

I am going to wait for the holidays sale. Many of these seem higher than during previous sales others are cheaper. Not surprisingly the most recent releases are the most expensive. I think I will do better later.

Some of the titles are also available on Vudu for free to stream (Irma La Douce for e.g) I do routinely find many Kino offerings for free on Vudu, specially many westerns. So check them out quality if you're on the fence on a purchase

Counterpoint: There seemed to be a fair amount of discs in the $5.99-$7.99 range during this sale.

I placed a small order for the minimum free shipping threshold.

Deep Rising (20th Anniversary Special Edition)
(Pre-order, Available 8/21/18) 1 $17.97
The Ambassador 1 $8.99
Assassination 1 $7.99
Platoon Leader / Soldier Boyz (Michael Dudikoff Double Feature) 1 $8.99
SpaceCamp 1 $9.99
Subtotal: $53.93
Shipping [FedEx Smartpost]: $0.00
Tax $4.85
Total $58.78


Deep Rising is not part of the sale (new title pre-order), but $17.97 is $2 cheaper than Amazon and I've been wanting it since it was announced.

I really dread seeing a thread pop up with Kino's name on it. There goes another couple hundred.

My order shipped already.

DJariya 08-16-18 01:39 PM

I got the notification today that my order has been processed and will ship soon.

I wonder if they will ship them all together or separate since Deep Rising is a new release on Tuesday.

Probably together with Deep Rising if it comes out next week. To ship it on Friday most likely is no big deal to them.

re: Kino Lorber Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals
 
^ I was pleasantly surprised with Ulee's Gold. Solid movie.

I was talking with a beekeeper in Ft Meyers earlier this year, who packaged and solde her own honey.
Best honey I've ever tasted and she said that the film was surprisingly quite accurate in that area.

Also just watched Onion Field in the last couple months. Still a powerful, affecting movie.

Good selections. Enjoy!

My order shipped and says it will arrive next Friday.

Free shipping like FedEx Smart Post is so slow. But, for this stuff, I'm in no hurry to get it.

Paul_SD 08-18-18 04:24 PM

re: Kino Lorber Studio Classics sales, discounts, and deals
 
I don't know if mine shipped or not. I got a followup email saying everything was cleared for packing or shipping or something like that, but nothing with a tracking number.

I'm in no particular hurry either, just would be nice to know when to expect it so I don't have a package sitting outside for hours.

DJariya 08-23-18 12:34 PM

According to the FedEx tracking, my order is being pushed back for delivery until the 29th. It shipped on the 17th. Funny thing is, it's current location is about 25 miles from where I live.

I'm in no hurry to get it as I probably won't have time to watch these right away, but just curious is FedEx Smartpost really slow like this?

Yes. Smartpost is basically FedEx's very-low priority shipping.

Received mine yesterday.

Just read part of Erkickson's review of The Purple Plain and really wish I'd looked into that movie before I ordered. I was under the impression it was a overly sentimental/message movie misfire, but Glenn has high praise for it and I like Peck and the setting.

No big deal, I guess, as it should show up in a future sale but it kind of seems more compelling to me at the moment compared to anything I actually did order :lol:

Almost tempted to make a small second order...but I know I'd probably regret it.
