Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

While on the topic of price for Lynch flicks, Inland Empire is up for pre-order on Amazon.ca for $60...just the bluray. Not a 4k or anything.
That's probably the most expensive I've seen a single film Criterion bluray listed.

I guess only paid attention the early ones I was interested in, like Hard Eight. But they’ve only been doing discs for 2 years.

2.5 years, but yeah, I fudged a little bit. #29 (the last reissue besides Warriors) was Feb. 2021, 22 months ago.

Noticed most of the other Criterion pre-orders are also that price on Amazon.ca, but I'm assuming they'll all drop. Unobstructed View has most of them at $54 list, and pre-order pricing around $41. Still steep for any movie, but at least UV does Criterion flash sales (albeit at less of a discount, usually).

They've been such a headache for me this year (see earlier in this thread) and, now that they go have gone down to 40 per cent off, in some instances, it was actually cheaper to order from Amazon.com and ship to Canada. I got Citizen Kane and Barry Lyndon cheaper then it would have cost from UV.

I guess The Fisher King is getting a UHD re-release:

Will get Fisher King. On the fence of Triangle. Seventh Seal was released by BFI in the UK and that edition was encoded by Fidelity in Motion (David M.), so I already know that edition is top tier and will most likely be better than CC's.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

Very cool to see Small Axe get a physical release.
Seventh Seal... I may upgrade. But that'd be my third or fourth time buying it.
Triangle of Sadness... I wasn't a fan, though the third act was great. Would have preferred Force Majeure, but this makes sense given their partnership with Neon.
