That's Criterion, right? Sweet.
I scored Citizen Kane the disc edition co produced by PBS 98 cents..
Not in the U.K.
I have just discovered this thread, and as charity shop DVDs are my new hobby, I shall be posting now and then.
I like to have a film night every Saturday, for which I keep a special box of DVDs handy for selection.
And I seem to be collecting the Marvel MCU films as and when they turn up in my local charity shops for 50p-£1
Just bought 10 DVDs for £3 in my local charity shop, including some I really want to see and some that might be awful. But at 30p each, it’s not much of a gamble:
• The Girl on the Train (2016)
• The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
• It’s Complicated (2009)
• Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
• Pretty Woman (1990)
• The Thomas Crown Affair (1999 remake)
• Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
• Rosetta (1999, with bonus film La Promesse from 1996)
• The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
Thoughts on any of these?
Nope, it's the Argent Films Special Edition. Criterions are mostly not sold here (I think they have produced a handful of Region B Blu-Rays e.g. Kelly Reichardt's "Certain Women" but they are the exception).
David Lynch's Dune
Anthony and Cleopatra
...plus a fourth one that I cant remember at the moment
I don't normally buy DVDs (prefer BD or 4K).... but it was a quid for the lot!
That's a great film. If I remember rightly, the soldiers move across the screen consistently in one direction when they are advancing, and back the other way when they are retreating. I happened to watch it at the same time as "War Horse" came out, and a review of that (I don't remember if it was of the film or the stage show) said the battle scenes made no sense. If a film made in 1930 can get these things right, why not something more recent?
One of my favourites from my teenage years!
DVDs have gotten so cheap around me that I don't pick them up anymore. I left behind a sealed copy of "Birdman" for $1.00 yesterday. Unless it's a Blu Ray or something I've been wanting, I leave it behind. Trying to fight the pack rat instinct!
You've never seen ' The Good the Bad and the Ugly ' ? Are you kidding? Watch it tonight !
Checked tonight when I got home - the fourth title in my 4-for-a-quid splurge (!) was....
Found these DVDs at thrifts over the past few weeks. $1.00 each.
Leonard Cohen - Live in London
The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle
Rome - The Complete Season 1-2 (HBO series)
The Third Man (1949) - 2DVD special edition - 50p
“Country Music: A Film By Ken Burns” 8 DVDs, 16hrs. w/bonus footage. $4.99 sealed. Thanks, Goodwill!
Wow, that is an excellent deal, great score!
I second that. Stunning deal.
Three for a total of £1:
• Hope and Glory (1987)
• The Man with Two Brains (1983)
• The Go-Getter (2007)
I saw the Steve Martin film many years ago. Anyone recommend H+G or The GG?
'Bottom - Mindless Violence' for £1
Hope and Glory is good ( if it's the John Boorman one ).
Bought a 10 disc Harry Potter DVD set for $10. After I finish the Coen Brothers box I'm binging Harry Potter.
Hope and Glory has one of the greatest closing lines in history.
Echo In The Canyon DVD, $1.00.
It is that one, yes.
I will listen out for that.
