Thanks. Picked up the only two I didn't have (Brazil and In the Mood for Love).

Great prices, just wish the selection was bigger as I already own Rashomon, and I'm not really that interested in getting the others.

Picked up Brazil, and then on second thought, grabbed Rashomon as well. Rashomon is on blind faith, so I'm hoping it's worth it... I suspect it will be.

Thanks OP. I had to order the Game at this price. If I had the money, I'd have to get Brazil and Rosemary's Baby too.

Wish they had more options, but I snagged "Brazil". Thanks OP.

I caught this film last night on TCM right at the "I could have been a contender" scene. Fucking amazing acting. I need to see the whole movie.

I got excited when I got the email from Amazon, but then I clicked on the "Learn More" and it was limited to these titles. I already had each of them, but a $20 Brazil set always makes a nice gift later.

Criterion is kinda like aged wine compared to boxed wine. Not that extreme, since there are some good "mainstream" releases that don't necessarily get the "artistic" treatment. But when compared to like the worst : like the ones with ads. They really are refreshing.


Seriously, you bought it and they have ads. I understand the rentals and I guess they can't differentiate and I really assume they don't care and think some people LIKE IT. But god Fuck those ads. "EXPERIENCE BLU-RAY!"

sorry 8-)

(note: not sure if "artistic treatment" is the best way to put it, but I think most people know what I mean.)

Sorry for going slightly OT, but...

When you do get a chance to watch OTW all the way through, make sure you get a good HD transmission and/or the Criterion Blu-ray. The DVD transfer and upconverts that get broadcast from it on some stations are head-shaking awful.

Sorry to revive the thread but, does anyone know of a good site or store that sells the clear cases these come in? My case came broken and amazon gave me a $6 refund to keep it, i cant imagine they're more than that. Thanks.

Criterion offers the replacements themselves through their store, 5 cases for $12...It's in their shop underneath the "Other" tab

That is good to know, I have one title needing a replacement too, when I bought it from moviestop, it was in a regular blu case

You can also get them from casetopia. They're exactly the same as the ones Criterion uses.
