Title: Criterion Collections
Post by: Ian Villaceran on Nov 28, 2012 at 03:50 AM
Let us talk about Criterion Collections here. Share your favorites, your collection..

Top 5

1. The Battle of Algiers - this film here is one of my all-time greats and my favorite Criterion Collection. This gave me a picture and an understanding about the brutality of politics and western hypocrisy. Made me a very open-minded person, too liberal and changed my views on anything forever..

2. Chungking Express - very original, exotic, fun and very sexy. Wong Kar-wai's masterpiece! :) Smelled the streets of Hong Kong while watching this film!!

3. Seven Samurai - this is a treat!! Funny, funny, funny.. I was so entertained by this film!!

4. Cul-de-sac - Roman Polanki's best IMHO!! Chinatown is great too but this for me is signature polanki. As with all of his films, keeps me on the edge on whats going to happen next. :)

5. The Game - David Fincher's finest!! You are talking about real thriller here.. suspense from start to finish with Fincher's dark, gritty and too visual his cinema signature..

Thinking of buying my first batch of Criterion movies this week. Any ideas which films will be best to first populate my Criterion Collection?
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: devlin_waugh on Jan 01, 2013 at 01:28 PM
depends mostly on your personal preference in films

CC selections are widely varied, one collector might favor a particular genre or director which another aficionado might not be inclined to view in his lifetime
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: ronnivore on Jan 01, 2013 at 06:25 PM
Yeah. I really admire the diversity in their films. I was thinking of buying them chronologically, but realized not all of their titles have been released on Blu-ray yet.

Here's my partial list:
1. Hunger
2. Fish Tank
3. Seven Samurai
4. Purple Noon
5. Fanny and Alexander
6. Salo
7. The Royal Tenenbaums
8. The Last Temptation of Christ
9. Charade
10. Antichrist

Post by: Klaus Weasley on Jan 01, 2013 at 08:27 PM
If you wanna buy Criterions, I strongly suggest you guys wait for the bi-annual Barnes & Nobel Criterion sale. Whenever I have some money, I always buy a bunch from it. However, to save on international shipping fees and customs tax, I have my Criterions shipped to my aunt's house in the States and she usually ships it to me via a Balikbayan box that she sends periodically with stuff. It takes longer but the costs are cheaper.

Ooh, Criterions! I have a handful of blus and around 300 on DVDs (mostly the initial releases--and those that haven't been released in high-definition).

I get Criterion blurays only during the Barnes and Noble sale. Otherwise, I go the eBay route.

But with Criterions, I never discriminate--nor choosy with the format. I get them both on blu or DVD--whichever I find that is/are cheaper. Personally, it's about the aesthetic quality of the film and not in its technical detail.

Huge Criterion Blu-ray Sale:

Best Buy is having a huge Criterion Blu-ray sale (over 200 titles) and Amazon has started to price match more and more titles and it seems likely that Amazon will continue to do so. Price-wise now is a good time to pickup the Criterion titles you want.

Hi, newbie lang dito. Just curious to those Criterion collectors how you guys order your BD's/DVD's?

I just started this year and only have these titles so far:
 - Seven Samurai
 - The 400 Blows
 - Tokyo Story
 - Zatoichi box set

and just ordered the Apu Trilogy on B&N to take advantage of the 50% off discount plus the additional 30% off for Black Friday. I use JAC to ship my orders from the US here in the Philippines.

I would be glad to know classic foreign film enthusiasts here.
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Klaus Weasley on Nov 28, 2015 at 08:20 PM
For me, I order from B&N or the Criterion site every time they have a sale and I have them ship it to my aunt's house in California. She usually sends us a Balikbayan box a few times a year so isasama na lang niya sa loob ng box na padala niya. Tipid ako sa international shipping and I avoid yun mga kupal na Customs taxes na yan.
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Wekapipo on Nov 28, 2015 at 09:52 PM
Buti ka pa! Halos isang movie din ung halaga ng shipping fee. :'(

Do you blind buy titles o pinapanood mo muna before you buy a copy? What's your favorite so far?
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Klaus Weasley on Nov 29, 2015 at 12:39 AM
I don't USUALLY blind-buy titles but I do on occasion. My favorite purchase so far is the Complete Jacques Tati box-set.
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Wekapipo on Nov 29, 2015 at 05:13 AM
Ahh, heard a lot about the Tati box set. I might watch Playtime first. It's on my wishlist though I have titles in higher priority like completing all Ozu's and Kurosawa's (yeah, I'm into Japanese cinema).
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: wedge on Dec 01, 2015 at 09:23 AM
I took advantage of the BN sale last year to get the Zatoichi set (with all the coupons and the BN membership discount, it was a steal). Haven't opened it yet, though. :)

I don't normally pay full price for Criterion (be it bluray or DVD---whichever is cheaper, but for the recent releases, I opt for the bluray) except during the BN sale. I go to eBay for used ones.

Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Wekapipo on Dec 01, 2015 at 12:55 PM
Yeah, it's wise to only buy during B&N sales and Criterion's own flash sales.

I actually got my Zatoichi box set for just 40$ (!!) on B&N's ebay account which is sort of a clearance sale or something. It was obviously a steal. I think the films would last me until the next two sales and I'm still waiting for the Apu Trilogy to arrive.

Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: wedge on Dec 01, 2015 at 10:42 PM
The flash sales are still a bit pricey compared to the BN sale. You still have to purchase at least $50 to avail of the free shipping from Criterion. Otherwise, the rate is five bucks. With the BN sale, I could get another ten off on top of their 50 off as a member (also with coupons they send via email or snail mail). Hence, I don't usually buy during the flash sales.

Now that the BN fall sale's over, I'm reverting to eBay. I'm a bit more selective now on buying films, it's either Criterion, BFI or MoC. I don't binge-buy like I used to. Haha.
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: Wekapipo on Dec 03, 2015 at 06:02 PM
That's right. You said you enjoy B&N's 10% off for members so that means you buy them in-store? Which ebay seller/s do you usually buy from?
Title: Re: Criterion Collections
Post by: wedge on Dec 04, 2015 at 11:52 PM
Yep, I buy them in-store--but only during the sale. I'm based out of the country, hence the accessibility to BN.

With eBay, I don't buy from a particular seller. I simply use the search function and go from there. I still find the Buy-it-now option to be a bit pricey. I'd rather take my chances on the auction.

Below is the cover art by Becky Cloonan. I think it's quite good, but would have been even better to go with Mike Mignola just to have uniformity with Criterion's Cronos and The Devil's Backbone releases....

CRITERION ANNOUNCEMENT:

Pan's Labyrinth

An Academy Award–winning dark fable set five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War, Pan's Labyrinth encapsulates the rich visual style and genre-defying craft of Guillermo del Toro. Eleven-year-old Ofelia (Ivana Baquero, in a mature and tender performance) comes face to face with the horrors of fascism when she and her pregnant mother are uprooted to the countryside, where her new stepfather (Sergi López), a sadistic captain in General Franco's army, hunts down Republican guerrillas who refuse to give up the fight. The violent reality in which she lives merges seamlessly with a fantastical interior world when Ofelia meets a faun in a decaying labyrinth and is set on a strange, mythic journey that is at once terrifying and beautiful. In his revisiting of this bloody period in Spanish history, del Toro creates a vivid depiction of the monstrosities of war infiltrating a child's imagination and threatening the innocence of youth.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Newly graded 2K digital master, supervised by director Guillermo del Toro, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
Alternate DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround soundtrack on the Blu-ray
Audio commentary by del Toro from 2007
New interview with del Toro by novelist Cornelia Funke about fairy tales, fantasy, and Pan's Labyrinth
New interview with actor Doug Jones
Four 2007 making-of documentaries, examining the characters, production, special effects, themes, and music of the film
Interactive director's notebook
Footage of actor Ivana Baquero's audition for the film
Animated comics featuring prequel stories for the film's menagerie of creatures
Programs comparing selected production storyboards and del Toro's thumbnail sketches with the final film; visual effects work for the Green Fairy; and elements of the film's score
Trailers and TV spots
PLUS: An essay by film critic Michael Atkinson

STREET DATE: OCTOBER 11, 2016

Post by: SpikeHK on Jul 16, 2016 at 04:25 PM
I just did a count - I have 113 Criterion Bly-Rays (and probably at least 200 Criterion DVD's and even a few Criterion laser discs in a box somewhere). It's a lot, I know, but I would buy them all if I could afford it.

I am really disappointed that there is no place to buy them in Manila. Fortunately I go to Hong Kong once every couple of months and there is a shop that will hold titles for me to pick up. Next week I will be getting Dr Strangelove, Fantastic Planet, The In-Laws.

For those of you who are buying Criterion discs from Amazon or B&N, what shipping methods are you using? What additional customs fees are you paying per disc?

Thanks!
