B&N sale is on for the month. Cancelled all my November pre-orders on Amazon, save Alone Wolf &a Cub which I already locked in for 39.99 when Amazon messed up on pricing. This is a good month too. Looking forward to Punch Drunk Love.

If I could recommend the Three Colors trilogy, absolutely brilliant.

Just picked up a very new looking Life of Brian Criterion dvd for $1 at the thrift store. Also, got a non-Criterion The Gods Must Be Crazy for 50 cents and a bunch of Shelly Duvall's Faerie Tale Theater VHS for a quarter each (anybody remember that show? Good stuff).

This is a good one. Movies/vinyl are half off for half of the month every month. Regular price is $2 for records/dvds and 50 cents for VHS. I pick up all kinds of stuff on the cheap.

Just bought a practically brand new copy of Seven Samurai on blu ray from a local thrift shop for $10. I read your conversation the other day and was hoping I'd find a deal on some Criterion dvd's or blu's. I guess it was my lucky day. :2thumb:

Sometimes I buy a movie, watch it once and then wish I had just rented it. I picked up Lone Wolf and Cub blindly because of your post alone. Thank you. Hooked from the very first scene and it only gets better from there.

Picked up Punch-Drunk Love and Kurosawa's Dreams at B&N. Luckily remembered to check store pickup first thing this morning.

That Punch Drunk Love is one of Criterion's all-time worst covers. Love the flick, but terrible cover.

Dreams is the fudge. When I was in highschool working 3rd shift at a video store, some super hippy dude introduced me to Kurosawa through Dreams. Same dude put me on Robert Anton Wilson's Illuminatus! Trilogy

Agreed. My first Kurosawa film, imagery/colors/motions etc had me in awe.
