I bought the "I am Curious" movies at regular (discounted) price mostly because of their history. I've seen "Yellow" before, but I don't remember seeing "Blue".

They aren't particularly good movies though. Check out some reviews.

"Diabolique" is rumored to be going OOP in order for it to be replaced by a new remastered version. This recently happened with "Wages of Fear" which went OOP maybe a couple of months back and is slated for re-release in an improved version later this year (the annoucement of it going OOP coincided with the remaster announcement). Both films are from the same director and were among the earlier Criterion releases (they have consecutive spine numbers - #35 and #36), so it's a safe play that "Diabolique" will follow the same path.

You should buy them if you're interested in the actual movies, not simply because they're Criterion Collection discs...even though Criterion is known for the excellence of their product.

The only other justification I could make for this purchase is if you plan to trade them off for something else you want later...but then, why not just buy what you want now, and leave these discs for someone who wants and would appreciate the movies on them?
