Does anyone know when Criterion will have their next 50% off sale? I would imagine not before Black Friday? Also, for those who participated in the last sale, does anyone know/remember if Zatoichi The Blind Swordsman was part of the sale? I'm thinking about getting the set but it usually runs over $150 and if I can get that for half off, I'll wait until the next sale. Thanks!

Criterion sales happen twice a year through Criterion's site and are 24 hours only and are 50% off. They happen late February / early March and late September / early October on a Tuesday. These are flash sales, and Criterion sends an email out about them when they start. Barnes and Noble does half off sales twice a year as well and last a month. Those are in July and November. All titles are half off in both of these sales, so Zatoichi sells for $100 during those times.

For anyone sitting on the fence on the Bergman collection, amazon just dropped the pre-order price to $195. After tax, mine came to $212. A bit cheaper than buying direct from Criterion.

For some reason I'm unable to find the Filmstruck thread but the service is now being terminated on November 29. They're not taking new subscribers. This really sucks! As a member for the last 2 months this has easily become one of my favorite streaming services due to their rich library of offerings.

FilmStruck may not be dead yet! After an outpouring of support from Hollywood's elite (including Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg) begging for the streaming service not to be turned off, WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey may be coming up with a compromise. A new iteration is in the cards for FilmStruck, though it might not be called that. The not good news is that it will be part of a package of streaming services from WarnerMedia that at present is scheduled to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Thanks. I just got the e-mail and signed up. At least this is coming sooner rather than later so there's still hope!

Ugh... dragged my feet on that Bergman Box Set and now I'll probably have to wait until late February to receive it. They seriously underestimated the demand for it and it's sold out in most stores. You can still get it for $150 online during the sale. Great price, just gotta be patient, I 'spose.
