Oh, nuts. Even though Barnes & Noble holds its 50% off Criterion Collection sale every July and November like clockwork, I somehow almost let this one slip by me. Just too much else going on in my life at the moment, I suppose. If you’ve been saving your pennies in anticipation (as I should have done, but didn’t), now is the time to stock up your collection.
The following list does not include every title that the Criterion Collection has released on Blu-ray. That would be far too long to include in this post. Instead, these are the titles that Criterion has released since the last Barnes & Noble sale, which ended July 30th of this 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.
The Barnes & Noble sale officially started yesterday, October 30th and will run through November 19th, 2012. All Criterion Collection DVDs and Blu-rays are being sold for 50% off MSRP, both in stores and online at barnesandnoble.com. In past sales, the discounted prices only applied to titles available through the end of the sale period. However, the B&N web site currently shows ‘Brazil’ (scheduled for December 4th) at 50% off as well.
Due to some major financial commitments I have going on right now, I’ll have to go light this time and prioritize ‘Brazil’ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby’. Which titles do you plan to buy?
