Anyone interested in my used Criterion DVDs:
8 1/2, M (2-disc), By Brakhage, The Third Man (2-disc), Breathless, Seven Samurai (3-disc)

I'd like to aim for $15 shipped each, except $28 for The Third Man (so I can ship FedEx), and $20 for Seven Samurai. The latter three are in excellent condition, while the first three are kind of old (8 1/2 was my first Criterion).

(The proceeds will go to my cats' annual vet checkup which is this month :3: )

I'd be willing to take Breathless and Seven Samurai off of your hands, if you are willing to sell them to me. I have Paypal.

DVD Beaver has a Paths of Glory comparison up. I like how everyone putting up caps gets the same shot of Timothy Carey (which is one of the best shots in the film).

Official date for the 50% Criterion sale at BN is Nov. 1st and it ends on Nov. 21st. Just in time for Night of the Hunter.

Sorry, pretty out of the loop here, but does this sale apply to website purchases or just in-store?

The last one applied online as well, and also if you preordered something that wasn't out yet, you'd still get the sale price when it finally showed up. So I plan to order the BBS boxset during the sale, even though it doesn't come out until the 23rd (I think).

Any Canadians here take advantage of the Barnes & Noble sale? I'm worried that shipping costs would negate the savings.

I did in the last one and though the shipping wasn't cheap, it was less than other American stores (like DeepDiscount) and the savings were great enough that I still saved plenty.

I've bought from a couple. Shipping is like $8 or something, and you save ~$20 per DVD/Blu you get so I'd say it's worth it.

shipping costs certainly did not negate the savings... i believe i made 4 orders from their summer sale.. everything went smoothly, and the extra in shipping costs didn't change the fact that we're still savinga bundle from the sale itself. i'm countin down the days until november 1st

Hate doing this, but I have to sell my Fanny & Alexander boxset. Hoping to get $35 shipped. It's in very good condition, even the box itself.
Also, Truffaut's The Last Metro Bluray for $15 shipped if anyone wants it. Never been played since I don't have a bluray player. $45 shipped for both if anyone wants them together. Just PM me.

All except Army of Shadows were predicted by folks at cf.org for this announcement. And all (except maybe Army of Shadows) are a pass for me.

Pretty weak month if you ask me, 80% reissues. No Eclipse?

Nothing is showing up as "coming soon" on the DVD-only or Eclipse pages, so there may be more.

edit: Just updated. Eclipse is Basil Deardenís London Underground with Sapphire, The League of Gentlemen, Victim, and All Night Long.

I just saw Army of Shadows last weekend. GREAT movie. I'm going to have to check out more Melville. Le Samourai was excellent, too.

I'm surprised Mr. Hulot's Holiday is taking this long, but my guess is that they're waiting so that they can release it along with Jour de Fete and Mon Oncle.

As usual, good unique cover art, the movie is kinda bland though. It doesn't seem like the type of thing I'd want to spend $30 or something on... unless I was William Hurt or something.

In similar types of movies, I saw Shattered Glass yesterday. It was pretty decent as well as being considerably less bland.

I noticed Criterion hasn't announced any DVD-only releases since the von Sternberg box and L'Enfance Nue (both from August), besides Eclipse sets. This seems to be good for some films like the two Sam Fuller SEs, but I hope they're not holding back titles over sales concerns.

I agree. I have the DVD and I think it's a must have for fans of classic sci-fi.

Seven Samurai is gorgeous on BD but I noticed the Dolby Surround audio track shows on my receiver as stereo, or the same as the mono track (which also comes up as stereo), is this a bug or something?

I thought Seven Samurai only had a mono track and a stereo track.

Apr 28, 2009


I thought so too, but there's a menu option for "Dolby Surround Soundtrack"

Edit: I guess it implies the second audio track, which outputs mono to the left and right channels rather than just from the center channels, although the HD audio light doesn't come on on my receiver.

Either way, this is an absolutely beautiful transfer. You can tell that it's Criterion's favourite film to remaster and play around with, for a 56 year old film it looks like it was created yesterday in glourious Bluray.

I've been extremely busy with work and I'd rather not get any Paypal stuff confirmed unless I know I can get a package out the same day. If you have your eyes on the BluRay, you're better off saving the money for that. Especially with the B&N sale coming up.
