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.

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?

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.

Guillermo del Toro has announced via Twitter that the Criterion Collection will release a Pan's Labyrinth 10th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray sometime this fall.

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....

Picked up A Brighter Summer's Day, In a Lonely Place and Picnic at Hanging Rock. My mom is in the States right now so I'll be getting them soon instead of waiting months and months for my aunt's balikbayan box.

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

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!

Was kind of hoping the Before Trilogy to hit the December release, but oh well, maybe we'll see them in the new year.

What I do is that I have it shipped to my aunt's house. She often sends us a Balikbayan box of stuff. I send the Blu-rays to her, isasama lang niya sa box.

It's nice that I don't have to buy the entire Jacques Demy box-set to get Cherbourg and Rochefort.

Hmmm.... I wonder why they made those two individually available. LOL.
