    So I went a little cuckoo-bananas with the B&N 50% off sale on The Criterion Collection these past couple of weeks (I bought almost 30 Blu-rays o_O). I only had a handful before (plus about 15 DVDs) but figured I'd start a thread (didn't find an existing one) to see who else has spent/blown their hard-earned money on these usually very expensive (and still not cheap now) but great films.

    My Collection:

    8 1/2
    45 Years
    The 400 Blows
    Akira Kurosawa's Dreams
    The Apu Trilogy
    An Autumn Afternoon
    Bicycle Thieves
    Blind Chance
    Blow Out
    Days Of Heaven
    Fanny & Alexander
    The Hidden Fortress
    The Killing
    The Lady Vanishes
    Last Year At Marienbad
    A Man Escaped
    Mulholland Dr.
    Mystery Train
    The Qatsi Trilogy
    Three Colors Trilogy
    Umberto D.
    Wild Strawberries

    Chasing Amy
    High And Low
    The Last Temptation Of Christ
    Red Beard
    Seven Samurai
    The Seventh Seal
    The Third Man
    Throne Of Blood
    Tokyo Story
    Yi Yi

    I think that's all of them. I didn't repeat the DVDs that I replaced with Blu rays.

    So...what have you got?

    Let's see what I can name from memory...
    Carnival of Souls
    Tokyo Story
    Peeping Tom
    Beauty And the Beast
    The Third Man
    Orpheus Trilogy
    Tati box set
    Passion of Joan of Arc
    Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoise
    Hard Day's Night
    Picnic at Hanging Rock
    David Copperfield? Or Great Expectations?

    That's all that comes to mind.

    Is Last Year at Marienbad available on blu-Ray? I thought that was long out of print.

    Yes it is, as stated by wayneklein. Honestly that's the only one I truly regret buying. I bought it long ago so I didn't pay the ridiculous sums people want for it on ebay but I truly hated that movie. Maybe I need to give it another shot.

    I'm trying not to update every DVD to Blu-ray...but who knows. I've updated 8 1/2, The 400 Blows, Kagemusha, The Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo, Three Colors Trilogy, and Brazil.

    I have The Third Man DVD (as mentioned) and I have Chunking Express on DVD too but it's not a Criterion disc.

    I would at least upgrade the Kurosawa films and The Seventh Seal to Blu-ray. All major improvements.
