Is Short Cuts OOP? It's not on the list and I don't even see it on the site.

Ordered "The Thief of Bagdad" and "Before The Rain." I've never seen the latter, but I know most of it takes place in Macedonia and was actually filmed there, and my grandfather was actually born there. I'm only 25% Macedonian but it's something I'm proud of. I hope to travel there some day, but I figured in the mean time, I can see a good movie, and experience a little of Macedonia along the way. $16.18 each. Not too shabby.

Postwar Kurosawa FREE
Three Films by Hiroshi Teshigahara $64.76

I'll place another order once I get paid next week. Hopefully DVD Planet will be mirroring the sale by then.

Damn, still a few criterions I've been putting off getting forever, but I really want to bulk up on Criterions in Blu-Ray, so I'll try to resist this sale.

You not only told yourself, you told us:

Just not worth the hassle and month long wait for product.

I would much rather pay a few extra bucks for a dvd and have it arrive in a timely manner.

...too bad I already had both of them! This sale makes you wish that you had never bought a previous Criterion in your life. Getting both those above for $50 each is pretty incredible. $12 lower tier Criterions... great!

I picked up a whole bunch of stuff: some Tati that I didn't have, some of the recent noir-ish titles, the new Malles, and some of the Jacques Becker that has been out for awhile. Gotta love it.

I would like to see Ugetsu and Down by Law added to this sale.
I'm also trying to show some restraint and resist buying Berlin Alexanderplatz and the Cassavetes Box set.

maybe I'm crazy. but why in the world would anybody want to spend money on SD Criterions that list for $40 when they have already announced they are going to re-release these same titles on Blu-ray HD for $40?? Am I missing something?

Because $16 a piece for those sets is a pretty incredible deal.

I guess they are trying to clear stock of the SD titles to make you think the BR titles are the thing to get?

Ugetsu is among a handful of Criterions that neither DD nor DVD Planet carry.

Last I heard, they've selected 13 titles to release on Blu-ray. Even if/when they decide to re-release the rest of the collection, at a rate of 3 a month, it would take more than 10 years to re-release all of the titles on Blu-ray.

Raise your hand if you think that Blu-ray will still be around by then...
