The time has finally come. The new Barnes & Noble 50% Off sale on Criterion Collection titles begins tomorrow, July 10th and runs through July 30th. We Criterion fans have been saving our pennies for this. How many discs do you plan to buy? (Or, more realistically, how many can you afford to buy?)
The following poll does not represent every title that the Criterion Collection has released on Blu-ray. That list is simply too long to include in this post. Rather, these are the titles that Criterion has released since the last Barnes & Noble sale, which ended November 21st of last year. If you plan to buy older releases (or titles only available on DVD), be sure to check Other and tell us in the Comments section.
As happens twice annually, each July and November, Barnes & Noble is selling all Criterion Collection titles at 50% off the MSRP value. This is effective both in brick & mortar stores or online at barnesandnoble.com.
AAA members should be able to get an additional 10% discount by shopping through this link. The sale prices apply to any titles available through the end of the sale period, which means that you can get the discount on pre-orders for ‘Down by Law’, ‘The Last Days of Disco’ or ‘Metropolitan’, but not for discs that will be released after July 30th.
I’m definitely in for the Chaplin titles, the Hitchcocks, the David Lean box set, Wes Anderson’s ‘Rushmore’ and Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s ‘World on a Wire’. How Criterion crazy will you go?
