When will you be selling that massive television of yours? That should be good for at least +3 karma points.


Some of those DVD's could have been ours major. Some of them...and we could even split the cost on the TV.


No go on the "tv" but Pedro is coming round tomorrow for the DVD sale
Hope he's happy with whatvhe finds
It will be fun to meet my first Reelviewer

I plan to show up around ten. Bear in mind I may show up earlier or later, but this is my goal. :)

Supposedly Beauty and the Beast is being "released from the vaults" the 15th this month. I'm thinking about doing a blind buy here. What do you guys say? Yeah, I know...another effing movie I haven't seen that everyone's seen. Word of mouth, and forum says it's a great movie.

And why the hell do they say "released from the vaults" for. There's no effing vaults.


That's for the Blu-Ray release. It's been devaulted otherwise.

That's a smart blind buy. One of Disney's greatest works.


My girlfriend just bought this the other day. Disney is doing the smart thing by putting regular DVDs and Blu-Rays in a combo pack. They have a bunch of special features alll on Blu-Ray, but you can watch the movie on a regular DVD player if you don't have Blu-Ray. They seem to be doing this with a ton of their releases and calling it the Diamond Edition.

Yeah, it's a solid blind buy, it's a really great movie.

I picked up the The Darjeeling Limited and In The Mood For Love Criterion releases today. Should be good times.

While shopping at Costco the other day I was forced to buy the BluRay/DVD of Raging Bull. 12 bucks, 99 cents.

It's the BluRay that enticed me...hell of a movie to watch high def like that.

That's a strong move, Ram. Good price for a classic.

My most recent purchase was Criterion's BluRay of Chaplin's The Great Dictator. I haven't watched it yet, so I can't really comment, but I know it's a great movie and I can't wait to get into those special features.

Great film but I don't think Criterion added much over the previous release from MK2. The Dictator and The Tramp feature is fantastic. I did pick up the Modern Times Criterion a few weeks back and The Thin Read Line last week.

Oh hey...that's one I've got on the DVR. Did you get that on sale? Same question to you Bondurant. I notice that sometimes you guys post Criterion sales and I'm real curious when the next one is cuz I've got a movie I must buy.

That's a shame to hear. I had The Dictator and The Tramp DVRed for about 2 months until I saw it was going to be on Criterion's release. I deleted it to clear up some space knowing I was going to be buying the movie when it came out. Good to hear it's worthy.

Watch that movie. It's all kinds of awesome.

I didn't get it on sale, I paid full price on Amazon. Usually, they sell the movies a few dollars cheaper than the Criterion site. I would also love to know when the next Criterion sale is because I have a few I've been eyeing as well.

The Chaplin films are cheaper by Criterion standards because they are single disc. A local shop was selling The Great Dictator for $15.99 when it first hit the shelves. I picked up The Thin Red Line at the same place for $22.99. Criterion has online sales from time to time and I heard Barnes and Noble is having a half price Criterion sale this summer (I have not confirmed this).

Let's say a lot:

From my current living place I discovered that a Barnes and Noble near me have a good amount of Criterion. So with that and a few others, I've bought since my job:

Antichrist
Salo
Hoop Dreams
A Better Tomorrow I and II
Schindler's List

When I go home there's a Disc Replay by me that sells lots of stuff, including movies. Suffice to say, I have bought A LOT! So much that I don't know what I have bought

Hey Petey and Rammy, do you guys still have the complete Metropolis on the DVR? Not a bad movie, you know.

Check out the cinephile. What happened to The Marine-loving Paddy? That's a pretty sweet haul, I still have to see a few of those.

He's still there, but Salo...that shouldn't be around anymore!

Barnes and Noble has the widest selection of Criterion's I've seen. The problem? They're $40 a pop! It's one of the best places on Earth when they have a sale or when you have a gift card or something. Everytime I go in there I have to stop myself from buying whatever Criterion currently strikes my fancy by reminding myself that I can get it from Amazon for almost half the price.

I don't. It was lost when I moved. However, it is available to stream on Netflix, so maybe I'll check it out soon.

I see what you mean even though I was lucky and only Salo cost me $40. Antichrist cost me $30 and Hoop Dreams cost me $25 but I don't trust the mailing system in my dump so nothing goes there.

Dude...I owe you like 15 hours worth of movie viewing, don't I? And you know what I just noticed yesterday? One of the local movie theaters is showing the LOTR trilogy, one movie a Tuesday for 3 weeks. You know when they showed the first of the three? Last fucking Tuesday. What a bitch.

You do! And I seem to owe you nothing in return. I'll add the Spanish-language (was it Mexican?) film you mentioned to my text list. Anything else? Wait, I think you've tongue lashed me for never seeing Swingers, yes?

Dude...you guys weren't kidding. I went to the local B&N a night ago and had to hold back from buying about 17 titles. The cover art on these things is so delicious. Really can't wait for that next sale.

Holy shit, that's right...although, I will not continue to bash you for it since 16 hours versus 90 minutes would make me a huge hypocrite.

But you really need to say that flick, man. It's so money and you don't even know it.
