I want the Haxan blu but it's scheduled for October. Black Friday, I guess.

I picked up Police Story. That will be it this go-around.

I ended up with

Do the Right Thing
Monterey Pop 2-disc
Shampoo
Blue Velvet

(and renewed my Membership against my better judgement as I never shop there)

I was upset that I couldn't find a copy of Silence of the Lambs. They have a big ad for it in-store but no copies and they can't order it either. Is it OOP? Should I grab it from Amazon for $23 while I still can?

Not OOP, just OOS. It'll be $23 (or better) at many stores over the next 6 months Possibly it could come back into stock for shipping again before the sale ends Sunday night.

You could also look at stores with it in stock and call -- some stores will ship to you direct from store (FS members and sometimes even member discount).
I'd make sure your member number/account is active onliine first or call CSR and see if they can push the activation. Sometimes store registrations can take a while to activate fully

Re: Barnes & Noble Summer 2019 Criterion 50% Off MSRP Sale June 28 through August 5

Today's the last day for the sale.

I picked up:
War and Peace
BPD Trilogy

One Sings the Other Doesn’t
Police Story (I had to go to three B&N before I found one in stock and in nice condition)
Detour

I
was thinking about getting The Baker's Wife - but I haven't seen much in the way of reviews on the Blu-ray, same for Let The Sunshine In - Maybe Turner Classic Movies will play them at some point, so I can see how they look,

Tom Jones was another maybe, just watched, and enjoyed that on TCM the other day. Seems like there is not a lot of love for that movie these days.
and The Magnificent Ambersons is on my maybe list as well, but I'll probably pass.


I am excited for the release of Godzilla collection!

My haul...

Blue Velvet
Klute
America Lost and Found: The BBS Story
Police Story/Police Story 2

I exercised some restraint this time after catching a glimpse of my backlog of unwatched titles.

Bought a few of the Amazon price matches but nothing at B&N this time.

It did. Ordered it with free shipping because of the membership. Couldn't get the extra 10% off, but still not a bad deal for a top-10 all-time favorite film of mine. Thanks.

I've got Tom Jones from a few sales back and am looking forward to just right mood (or chunk of time) to watch it.
Picked up Baker's Wife this sale and it's another one I'm looking forward to. Though at 140 minutes, I'm really going to need to be in the proper frame of mind for it. I think it was earlier in this thread that I mentioned the only place I'd ever heard of it was the book 1001 Movies You Must See. It sounded great, so it's just a matter of getting my headspace right for it.

I finally watched Orpheus a couple weeks ago. I must have had that about five years, but I was looking for a second feature to close out the night, and was in a dreamy state of mind which was perfect for it. I feel I wuld have got more out of it had I been more familiar with the myth and some of the French culture of the time, but that's what supplements are for. I'll go through those before another viewing in a few more years.

Oak Brook finally got 1984 back in stock so I got that today.
Time to start saving for Godzilla this fall.
