-Watch out for an abundance of female armpit-hair as you approach the 70's

Re: The Criterion Channel -- streaming service

I just subscribed for the year and was looking for recommendations. I like horror and disturbing films like Requiem For A Dream.

My first movie i watched was Alice . I then moved on to the Olympics documentary series and watched the 90s L.A. games. Good stuff.

You might enjoy Antichrist; I like it a lot, but two of my best movie buddies think it's pretentious twaddle.

Clean, Shaven is different, and it certainly has its disturbing moments.

If you've never seen Bob Clark's Deathdream, you should probably remedy that.

Eraserhead. The list really could begin and end with this one.

Re: The Criterion Channel -- streaming service

My son gave me two months of The Criterion Channel as a gift. Excited to try out the service, and with the two week trial, that should be closer to 2-1/2 months of service.

Now I'm trying to determine if there's a best time to activate service, as I'm not sure how limited availability is for some titles/collections. For example, when they run a special collection of films in a month, are you best having service at the start of the month or do those films remain available for months following? Similarly, do the Adventures in Moviegoing and Double Features remain past the initial month? Esp. curious with the Edgar Wright Adventures in Moviegoing and the Doris Wishman and Jim Jarmusch collections this month but with less that a week remaining to the month, I want to make sure I'd have time to properly explore them.

I didn't realize the price was going to be $129. For some reason I thought the normal price was $99.

Definitely glad we early adopters are locked in at $89.

It’s it increasing? I pay $99 USD for the service and there’s no mention of going up.

Re: The Criterion Channel -- streaming service

That's what Dex14's post seems to indicate, and the website shows the same. But it'd be a pretty big mistake, IMHO, to jack prices up 30% in a single shot.

For some reason, I thought you were an early adopter too, Lorenzol?

Ah, hold on... They're indicating what you'll save over the 'regular monthly rate,' so probably a false alarm. The monthly rate is $10.99. Sounds like your $99 annual rate should remain the same, for now.

For CC "charter" members, they sent out a $10 gift certificate yesterday that can be used at the CC shop. It can also be used on the 50% off sales and has no expiration date. FYI

Some great films coming in May. I'm excited for the Ida Lupino and Linklater films. I definitely need to use VPN to circumvent the US only releases.

I was just thinking the same thing. I also know it works with CC, as I had my son log in to my account using his VPN, and confirm he was able to stream US only content.
