Re: Warner Archive sales

It's my understanding, which I think was confirmed by the WA years ago, that any WA titles from Amazon will be strictly burned and not pressed. I can't remember exactly where and when I read this,...

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

Watch out with Alpha if you're buying a brand new copy of any of their releases as they have gone exclusively burned on EVERYTHING. You may luck out and get a pressed copy if you buy used, but new it...

Re: Kino $4.99 'Classic Clearance' sale - ends Jan. 31

I've shown Fairbanks movies to kids who had never seen a silent movie before and they've been riveted. Anyone who thinks silent cinema is a dead language should watch Fairbanks and prepare to be...

Re: Kino $4.99 'Classic Clearance' sale - ends Jan. 31

I called them on Monday to find out if I could add a title to my order and at that time they said that my order was processing. In the initial e mail it does say:

"Orders from recent closeout...

Welcome, Russ and thanks for the shout out.

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

Brian, I'm rethinking making any changes to my last order based on the possibility you brought up about collections potentially going out of print. It's also possible that even if the collection...

Re: Kino $4.99 'Classic Clearance' sale - ends Jan. 31

Too late for this sale now, but I hope DF fans did pick up THE GAUCHO, which is one of this best films and my personal favorite. I also believe it to be his finest performance as he was required to...

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

Then you should order SILVER FLEET and MORNING DEPARTURE now at $3.99 because those two are not included on the sets. ;)

I wasn't aware of the sets either, so thanks for that, Brian. I may cancel...

I just noticed that the serial THE LOST CITY has either been added or I missed seeing it prior to placing my order. Of course, I'm going to believe it was the former and not beat myself up for not...

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

Great minds think alike, Bob and Moo!

There were several in this sale I paid more for in years past and that I still haven't watched, which I admit chafes me a bit, but what can you do? I've...

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

I agree with you about the VCI serials, most of which are the definitive versions. The only ones which are sometimes better than VCI as far as the public domain titles go are the Hal Roach editions...

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

DVD Beaver has reviewed a fairly good number of VCI titles (especially the noirs), probably more than any other established online critic. He is not very supportive of their quality in general, so...

I've gone over the selections three or four times now and just couldn't find much this time that I didn't already have. I've bought quite a bit from VCI over the years. These prices are great, no...

Re: DOTD 12/30 Rawhide Complete $61.91 Amazon Canada

I don't believe Season 4 has been remastered nor do I believe it ever will be. CBS is packaging these Complete Series releases as a kind of last hurrah for vintage TV on physical media, so I decided...

Re: Warner Archive sales

Thanks for posting, CF. Some good deals.

Just a reminder that if any of these were released pressed by the WA, you will not get those copies ordering from Amazon. These will all be burned DVD-Rs.

Re: Bat Masterson: The Series PLUS 2 Bonus Movies - 16 DVDs $22.49

It's possible that BAT MASTERSON is still the old pressed edition and the movie double feature is the one that is MOD. I believe that movie set was an Amazon exclusive and not sold anywhere else.

Re: Official VCI/ROAN/ALPHA Bargain Thread

VCI seems a bit overwhelmed by their recent sales. Still haven't received two of the items from my November 25 order, but one came yesterday and it was the wrong title.
