What's the greatest/most special OOP DVD you have that you bought while in print?
 
Just curious. Mine would have to be Robocop (Criterion), Flash Gordon, or Toy Story 2-pack.

Doughboy 01-07-04 06:50 PM

Probably This Is Spinal Tap Criterion. It's worth the most out of all the OOP discs I own.

TomOpus 01-07-04 06:53 PM

I guess I can mention the signed I Drink Your Blood DVD.

Quite by accident, I got Lady in White right before it went out of print. I am happy about that one. Besides that, I am rather enamoured with my Evil Dead 2 Tin and Dead Ringer Criterion disc.

Probably Hard Boiled (Criterion) or Charade (Criterion).

A few would be <i>Flash Gordon, Swamp Thing, Duck Soup, Animal Crackers, Horse Feathers, Charade (CC), Silence of the Lambs (CC), Robocop (CC), Unbearable Lightness of Being (CC)</i> and the recent Hitchcock CC's then just went OOP.

Charade and the Ultimate Toy Box, both still sealed.

Brent L 01-07-04 08:20 PM

The Criterion Wrong Men & Notorious Women Hitchcock Collection box set. I removed the outer plastic cover over the box set, but each individual DVD in the set is still sealed.

I've been buying DVDs for awhile. I bought Salo and This is Spinal Tap Criterion on the same day. Didn't have any idea they would go out of print. I was actually thrilled when I sold Salo for $150 when it went OOP since I hated the movie. Little did I know it would go up to such a higher outragous price on ebay.

I bought most of the Criterions that are now out of print while they still were in print. I bought all the Image Universals for $9.99 each in a bargain bin. I still have Double Indemnity and MST3K the Movie sold the rest for a big profit.

I have some of the Anchor Bay limited editions (which aren't so limited), all the Universal Classic Monster Movies, and the Disney DVDs that are no OOP.

Of all my OOP movies This is Spinal Tap, MST3K: The Movie, and the entire Universal Monster Collection are my most cherished and rewatched DVDs.

I heard Night of the Living Dead ME was out of print, I love that movie, and the DVD is loaded to the gills

DVD Smurf 01-07-04 08:52 PM

Killer: CC

Rogue588 01-07-04 09:01 PM

Little Shop Of Horrors with the alternate ending.

I bought the set too except mine weren't individually sealed. They also punched a hole through the bar code too for some reason. Probably didn't want people splitting them up and selling for profit on ebay.

That's rather odd. Did some with the sets come out with each DVD individually sealed and some not?

Well, obviously if you have it one way and I the other, lol. I've just never heard of that before. Where did you pick yours up at, and when?

HistoryProf 01-07-04 09:26 PM

mine had the bar codes punched too....i think it is more aimed at retailers though than consumers who might resell them. Criterion doesn't really care about that, because the set has been sold as intended. Retailers breaking them up, however, is something a production company would most definately care about.....I'm not sure which came first, but it seems that the individually wrapped titles in the box were from the initial shipments.

As for my favorite oop titles...probably the Hitchcock Criterions along with Charade CC and Silence of the Lambs CC. Had the Tati's and am now quite glad that I sold them in the initial frenzy since they are back in print :)

divemaster 01-07-04 09:31 PM

I have a Special Limited Edition Total Recall with a Mars tin!!!!


What? What?

:p

Brent L 01-07-04 09:33 PM

Well thanks for the information, I never knew that.

sicklerice 01-07-04 09:41 PM

Rabid Dogs was the rarest thing I ever had.

The most lucrative was a Killer:CC that cost me $6 from reel.com that I sold for $232. I sold a 1st press of Seven Samurai:CC for $175.

It's funny that so many people talk about that Flash Gordon as if it's valuable. You can buy that Universal release for $20 shipped with ease or less.

talemyn 01-07-04 10:02 PM

Ultimate Toy Box . . . bought it on an average day and, the next thing I know, people are trying to hunt it down six month later.

jayson1017 01-07-04 10:25 PM

Very few people can lay claim to this....


SALO (Criterion)

Darryl 01-07-04 10:31 PM

Early Criterions - Salo, Spinal Tap, Hard Boiled.. Duel, Rabid Dogs, I Drink Your Blood, Wicker Man R2 box set, MST3K : The Movie, and possibly my favorite - The Universal Monsters collection - especially the first batch with the fantastic commentaries and documentary features. I find myself going back to them often just for their great wealth of information.

lesterlong 01-07-04 10:37 PM

Probably my Criterions of Charade and Sid & Nancy. I have some other OOPs but I like those ones the best.

spongebobkay 01-07-04 10:54 PM

[list=1][*]the Ultimate Toy Box[*]Silence of the Lambs: Criterion[*]the History of Beavis & Butthead[*]the Rock: Criterion[/list=1] I'm not sure if the Rock is OOP or not! http://deephousepage.com/smilies/whistle.gif
