Criterion DVDs at Target B&M $19.99

I stopped by Target today and noticed they were selling some Criterion DVDs for $19.99. There were only 4 titles:

Brazil (1 Disc)
Hopscotch
The 400 Blows
The Last Emperor (1 Disc)

Maybe there will be more titles in the future?

I'm currently only in the market for The Spy Who Came In From The Cold and the David Lean-directed films. Still, it's good to know to start paying more attention to Target for such releases.

If it's the new anamorphic Brazil (which I'm fairly certain it is) then I'll grab it for $20. I need to upgrade that one. Although I do have a nagging feeling it'll be announced for BD soon...

Which section were the Criterions in? The only one I seemed to be able to find was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

They were on the bottom row of DVDs near the "Best Sellers" section.

Worth noting that list on these is only 29.99, so it's not a monstrous deal, but a pretty good one for B&M

I would hold out if you've got a Blu-ray player.

Thanks for the post OP but I have all 4 of them. This reminds me that I have to either buy more criterions or part with my criterion collection soon.

Well yes, of course, if you don't buy any more Criterions, you would have to...wait. What, now?

FYI, Brazil and 400 Blows are $18.99 on Amazon. You would save an extra $2.50 (approx.) if you live in state that doesn't charge tax for Amazon purchases and qualify for free shipping.

Brazil is tempting but I'll wait for the eventual BD.

Re: Criterion DVDs at Target B&M $19.99

Most of the Targets I frequent have Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on the shelf. Time to go visit and run it under the scanner.

Possible but unlikely.

Fear is a 39.99 MSRP Critey, the ones listed above are 29.99 MSRP. I doubt they'd suddenly drop the price that much on Fear.
Won't hurt to check, though, of course.

Re: Criterion DVDs at Target B&M $19.99

I did much better with DD's Criterion buy one, get one free sale. $40 MSRP Criterions ended up costing a net of $16; the $30 MSRP ones cost about $12.

We can hope they'll be doing it again sometime in the near future.
