There's a 24 hour sale over at criterion.com. 50% off any blu or dvd in stock. Not sure if I'll get anything now or wait until the Barnes & Noble sale in a couple months but figured I'd pass the word along...

Dammit, just got home in time for the three things I really wanted to be backordered. I'll still probably end up spending irresponsibly large amounts of money.

Well there's a rub to this sale, it was only 50% the wholesale price, not Criterion's listed price. For instance I was going to get a blu ray which Criterion had at $31, but after tax and shipping it was $26. Not much of a discount. I remember the same thing happened the last time they had this flash sale a year ago, it's better to hold out for the Barnes & Noble sale in a few months. I already know of about 6 or 7 that I plan to get from that.

Yeah, it's really only worth it if your order is over $50.

What are you talking about, 50% off is 50% off. There's no tax on online purchases and there's no shipping on orders over $50 (and any shipment with more than three movies is going to be over $50). What's more, I've found Criterion's shipping to be way better than B&N's, plus the site has a better selection than B&N brick and morter stores. Those are $19.99 criterion Blu-rays, which is a much better price than you're going to ever find anywhere else. Plus, every dollar gives you a point towards a $50 gift certificate from Criterion once you hit 500 points down the road.

I ended up buying seven movies (including the usually expensive Brazil BR) for less than $150. That's a deal any way you cut it. At Criterion's list prices it would have cost at least $241.

Doomsday is complaining about $26 and Dracula is happy he only spent $150. You can tell which is the rich one between the two. Congrats on your wealth, Dracula, but try not to rub it in next time.

I'm not remotely rich, I just have my priorities straight.

I’m only talking about if you plan on buying one or two movies, the price difference isn’t going to matter too much because you’ll make it up in the shipping and only save a couple bucks off the discounted criterion price. If you buy 7 or 8 then yeah it will be roughly the same price as B&N but I’m not one to drop a ton of cash on movies at one pop (especially when said movies are all on Hulu Plus). The B&N sale is different though because that goes on for 4 or 5 weeks rather than one day so I’ll hang tight while a few more titles I’m anticipating are released.

And California just implemented sales taxes for online retail so it matters even less to me.

I don't even buy DVDs/BRs anymore. I typically wait until the library has them available and check them out there.

Same. I use libraries/netflix/cable/etc whenever I'm seeing things for the first time, then I buy my favorites for the collection. I rarely blind buy.

The last time I blind bought a film it was The Fugitive and only because it was dirt cheap. Not really a film I would have bought, but given the low price I can't complain.

Topsy-Turvy and Shock Corridor are great films. I haven't seen Following yet, though it's on Netflix Instant.

I watched it on the Sundance channel years ago. I remember it being interesting but not great. Kind of a glorified student film, I'm only really buying it out of Chris Nolan completeism.

Right on. I have the Brazil DVD box set that they released a few years back. It was a nice set, which might very well be out-of-print now for all I know.

I prefer Nolan's short films over Following in his pre-Memento work.

Nice find!

Damn, $16.49 for The Game, $19.99 for Rashomon and Brazil blus. I'm definitely considering getting one or all.....gaaaaah I hate spending money.
