Wow, nice deal.

I just wish DVDPlanet would offer the same thing since I have so much credit there. :)

nemein 07-14-08 09:52 AM

Great deal... too bad I can't think of any Criterions that I want that I don't already have :(

Abeworld 07-14-08 10:02 AM

Is criterions release of Blu-Ray the big reason for this sale??

If yes, then probably it would be a good idea for all of us BR collectors to wait for their favorite criterions to be released on BR instead of double dipping.

Which brings another thought: Are extras be the only reason people would go for Criterion BR discs? Because the quality of, say, The Superhero Movie released on BR will be the same as Autumn Sonata!!!!

Quiet possible and Janus is also going to release barebone editions very soon!

Paul1957 07-14-08 10:29 AM

Vampyr comes out on July 22, I was going to grab this anyway. Now what to get with it?

Sondheim 07-14-08 10:45 AM


There's an enormous amount of Criterion DVDs that I still want - but the 20% off sale pretty much drained my DVD budget for the summer.

Still, I'll probably buy a few once the code goes active.

basaro 07-14-08 10:56 AM

$32.39/$32.36, is that their regular price on $39.95 MSRP's?
Seems kinda high, more than most everyone else...?
I was a little more excited about this until I saw that. Still might find something though, thanks.

utopianz14 07-14-08 11:02 AM

While I'm excited for the sale, I'm a bit annoyed because I was going to list a whole batch of Criterions for sale on the Exchange forum this morning. Now, I don't think I can sell them for what I initially priced them at.

So, instead of making some money and reducing the size of my collection, I'm probably going to end up buying more DVDs from this sale... Oh, the irony!

Yes, they do seem to have raised their prices on Criterions in the past few weeks - possibly in anticipation of the sale (though, no, I couldn't prove that's why they did it.)

But even at those prices - it's still a great deal.

Let's do some math (it's fun!):

Buying "Tokyo Story" and "Early Summer" (regular price of $25.97 at DVD Planet) during the 20% off sale would cost $41.55, at an average of $20.77 per DVD. Buying them during this sale would cost you $32.39 ($9.16 less than DVD Planet), for an average of $16.19 per DVD (a savings of $4.58 per disc.) And DVD Planet has been raising their prices on the newer Criterion releases - so buying, say, "Mon Oncle Antoine" and "Before the Rain" here would be an even better savings over DVD Planet.

Buying two lower-tier titles (say, "The Flowers of St. Francis" and "Boudu Saved from Drowning") from DVD Planet (usually priced at $19.47) during the 20% off sale would cost you $31.15, for an average of $15.57 per DVD. Buying them here would cost you $24.29 (a savings of $6.86 over DVD Planet's sale price) - an average of $12.14 per disc (a savings of $3.43 per disc.)

Which is about the cheapest I've ever seen them. (And if only DVD Planet would duplicate the sale - it'd pretty much be the deal of the century.)

And that's probably more detailed than anybody wanted - buy hey, I'm bored. :)

Kory 07-14-08 11:35 AM

Note that it says "select list" which probably means it won't be all, or even close to all, Criterions.

Edit: Nevermind, I clicked the link. Seems to be a pretty good selection.

That's what I thought just reading the post but if you look at the link it has the list. If it's not all Criterions it is most definitely the majority of them.

pjflyer 07-14-08 12:01 PM

C'mon DVDPlanet!

With their lower Criterion prices, coupons, and FBP that would be the ultimate sale.

Tarantino 07-14-08 12:29 PM

Seven Samurai is still $40? If it was listed at $32, I would have picked it and something else out.

= J

seven samurai has an MSRP of $50. if you did get it and something else, that would be $20 each. $20 for Seven Samurai is a ridiculously great value.

zekeburger1979 07-14-08 12:38 PM

Boy, am I stupid. I couldn't figure out why the code wouldn't work until I looked at the 1st post again and realized that it doesn't start until Wednesday. Doh!

I'll pick up Seven Samurai and The Third Man.

Kory 07-14-08 12:49 PM

These prices are definitely higher than what they were during the 20% off sale. Better deals after the B1G1, but it's kind of bogus that they raise them. Oh well.

Considering picking up Yojimbo/Sanjuro and Thief of Bagdad.

Zen Peckinpah 07-14-08 01:35 PM

I'd buy Days of Heaven and La Haine, but I'm almost certain I'd get it now and then it'd be on Blu-ray next year.

Lipid 07-14-08 01:36 PM

This is a tough call. A year ago I'd jump all over this and place many orders but with the blu-ray info I doubt I'll buy anything. Maybe if some of the boxsets are on sale I might go for it since a boxset blu-ray would be more than I'm willing to pay.

crweb 07-14-08 02:05 PM

Well, if they had listed both, Testament Of Dr. Mabuse and Fiend Without A Face, I'd have bit. Now nothing.

Oooooh, thanks for the reminder... definitely gonna pick that one up!

EDIT: CRAP, doesn't appear to be on the list. :hairpull:

blokhed 07-14-08 02:17 PM

Man, that's a great sale, but I've already sold most of my Criterions in anticipation of their Blu-Ray releases.

NoirFan 07-14-08 02:20 PM

Hopefully there won't be another "unavailable" fiasco like with Six Moral Tales during the 20% off sale.

JAY NOW! 07-14-08 03:28 PM

The code is working! The game is on!

Bought The Thief of Bagdad and The Furies for a sweet $32.36 shipped.

punit 07-14-08 04:03 PM

Yes, indeed it's working. Mods, can you please remove starts 7/16 from the title of the thread ?

dmkb 07-14-08 04:24 PM

Is this code reusable?

JMcCraw 07-14-08 04:38 PM

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

chris_sc77 07-14-08 04:39 PM

^Coupon is reusable (if you even need to put the coupon in in the first place that is)

****Order #1****
A Nos Amours
Before The Rain
Days of Heaven
F For Fake
George Washington
Gimmee Shelter

^Total for Order #1 = $129.56

****Order #2****
Coup De Touchon (Clean Slate)
Fishing With John
Sweet Movie (blind-buy)
Umberto D.

^Total for Order #2 = $48.58

(Titles I'm thinking about ordering: Spartacus (3-disk)/ The Leopard (3-disk);
The Killers (2-disk), The Tales of Hoffman, Solaris, Burden of Dreams, Naked

Kory 07-14-08 04:42 PM

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.

beebs 07-14-08 05:13 PM

Must resist...


ernestrp 07-14-08 05:23 PM

The Furies
Ice Storm

NoirFan 07-14-08 05:27 PM

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. :fc:

alfonsosoriano 07-14-08 05:44 PM

Awesome! I will definitely grab a few of the discs that I've been wanting.

Sessa17 07-14-08 06:04 PM

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.

Matthew Ackerly 07-14-08 06:12 PM

Picked up The Furies and M...

Told myself I would never order from DD again, but what a deal!

Hopefully, Vampyr will be part of this when its released next week

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.

alfonsosoriano 07-14-08 06:35 PM

Can't resist the shark.
