Arbelos has a 50% off sale going on:
https://arbelos.bigcartel.com/category/blu-ray

Not a lot of titles, but some good ones:

The Juniper Tree
Mutual Appreciation
The Last Movie
Private Property
Belladonna of Sadness
Funeral Parade of Roses
Guiseppe Makes a Movie
(plus posters for some to-be-released films like Satantango and Son of the White Mare)

Funeral Parade of Roses is an absolute essential (and has a stunning 4K restoration), but I found The Last Movie to be fascinating with Dennis Hopper trying for a way more avant-garde approach compared to Easy Rider.

Do I want to own Belladonna of Sadness...

What's your quick pitch on Funeral Parade of Roses?

edit: Any idea how long this sale is for? I didn't see anything on the site.

I hate to piss on the parade but international shipping is shut down right now so if you're not in the UK you're poo poo out of luck.

Their site says it's still shipping internationally?

quote:

Q. Do you still deliver internationally?
All international orders above 2kg will ship with DHL and remain unaffected at this time. For all other international orders we use Royal Mail Tracked International, please see the following latest information from Royal Mail:

March 31 - International Services Country Suspensions

We are working every day with our airline and in country partners across the globe to maintain services. The rapidly changing nature of the impact of Coronavirus means access to countries is changing and the global picture can vary day to day.
Most major export routes remain open and Royal Mail is continuing to accept, process and transport mail out of the UK for delivery across the globe. Most Royal Mail services, including to the USA and many other countries remain operational.
A lack of available air transport to a growing number of countries as authorities restrict the movement of people across borders. In some cases, there is also a suspension of in country postal operations.
As a result we currently have service suspensions in place for 43 countries. The suspensions cover all RM services to these countries and will remain in place until further notice or until we are able to move mail into countries for onward delivery.

Hey goons, my roommate is moving out at the end of the month and I'll be without a blu-ray player. Is there a good cheap-ish (like say ~$150 give or take) region-free blu-ray player that you guys would recommend?

UHF has a great commentary, with actors showing up randomly to do the commentary throughout. There's even a part where Weird Al pops up and yells at things happening on screen before vanishing again, like an MST3k visual gag.

Fans of Sleepaway Camp should listen to the commentary on the Scream Factory release with Felissa Rose and Jonathan Tierston and superfan Jeff Hayes. It's good, insightful, funny, and it's wonderful to hear how many of those actors stayed in touch and remain close friends all these years later.

Probably avoid the other two commentaries, though. They're awkward and lame.

Beetlejuice and Bill & Ted are getting 4K releases later this summer. Bill & Ted is a U.K. release through StudioCanal atm, but itíll probably get a US release too with the new movie coming.

Vampires, now there's a masterpiece.

Vampires is half of a good movie, and half of a terrible movie.

Of the Carpenter misfires, I think Village of the Damned has the most going for it. The Sleep sequence is genuinely terrifying.

And they're wrong about the tv edit only airing once. I swear it was advertised relentlessly on USA or MTV or somewhere one weekend in the late 90s as "the infamous tv edit" and run multiple times over a weekend. I definitely watched it multiple times on tv in that horrible edit during high school.

I feel like this was on the Collectors' DVD from 15 years ago, too.
