I’ve been meaning to finally kickstart my Criterion collection for a while now, so this will be a good opportunity to start (I’ve been holding out, since I’ve been trying to watch how much money I spend on DVDs).

I thought I only had to worry about one Criterion sale a year, oh well there goes a chunk of this paycheck.

So happy and so sad at the same time. Does anyone want to give their top 5 or so recommendations?

@Jericho Can’t go wrong with John Lurie’s recommendations: http://www.criterion.com/explore/43-john-lurie-s-top-10

Awww damn I didn’t realize the Free shipping was only for US orders. Hmmmmm may have to reconsider due to Canadian shipping bullshit.

$20 shipping! Yikes! Good thing I have an additional $10 off.

I thought I might make it past this sale without lightening my wallet, but then you had the Belle de jour picture in there and it reminded me that I haven’t picked up Repulsion yet. *sigh* I also really want Anatomy of a Murder, but sadly that one’s not out until NEXT week. 🙁

Boy, the Criterion servers seem really overloaded with this sale. Good thing I’m only ordering 1 disc.

After the huge headache of trying to place the order, despite the servers being overloaded, I was successful in my order of VIDEODROME.

Film only took 3 days to get delivered! Will probably watch it tonight.

Yeah that was a massive pain in the ass but got my movies ordered at the end of it. I got 6 because I just put some money aside for sales like this, and so I don’t get murdered on individual shipping.

I got, 8 1/2, Tokyo Drifter, Le Cercle Rouge, Le Samourai, Carlos(this is purely on your review Andrew) & Rushmore

Site was a goddamned mess, this was worse than ordering TIFF tickets on the first day. (SNAP!)

Anyways, after 95 minutes of effort my girlfriend and I got each other Godzilla, If…, and The Complete Monterey Pop. BECAUSE OF LOVE.

would like The Great Dictator and God Created Woman, but I am not going to fight with their site for them.

I just placed my order with little trouble. I probably spent about 30 minutes but that was mainly because I had difficulty narrowing down my list to keep within my DVD budget.
In the end my choices were:
“The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Topsy-Turvey” (on my wish list for a long time),
“Charade” (blind buy),
“Modern Times” (because the family loves Chaplin).

It looks like the site slowdown was so bad that Criterion is planning to send out another code for titles that went out of stock today.

check your e-mail. Criterion code of REDO to order out of stock items until tomorrow at 5 pm. PB & J until next payday!
