There is a 24 hour flash sale going on at Criterion.com today. I picked up these titles, all on Blu-Ray:

3 Films by Roberto Rossellini Starring Ingrid Bergman
The Heiress
Some Like It Hot
Black Narcissus
Nashville
Amores perros
The Piano Teacher
Charade
Sansho the Bailiff

A number of blind buys and some old favorites. Kind of a smattering of foreign film and Classic Hollywood this time around for me.

I also participated in the 4 for $44 sale. I’ve been saving since last month for this sale so I bought a lot of titles. But since this may be the cheapest any of these movies are ever again, I felt I had to. I love WAC, I wish all studios treated their back catalogues as good as Warner does their’s.

I just bought the first two seasons of Bates Motel on Blu-ray. I've already seen the show, but it's been so long and I always planned to get it when the price was right. It was $14, so that's like $7 per season. I have a lot of shows that I keep an eye on to pick up on Blu-ray when they get low enough one season at a time (Merlin, OUAT, LOST, etc.). :)

Beautiful Thing DVD ~ This was the first LGBT film I ever saw… Well, except for maybe Transamerica? I’m not sure. Anyway, LOGO was a free channel years ago when I was in high school and this film was airing at the time. It’s always had a special place in my heart for that reason.
ReBoot: The Definitive Mainframe Edition DVD ~ I’ve had most of the later (best) seasons of the show on VHS, and so put off buying this hoping for a low price. The lowest I’ve ever seen it get was $35 area a few years back, but it hasn’t got that low recently. There was a coupon available with it the other day that took nearly $10 off and I figured that’s around as low as it’ll ever get. *shrug*
Merlin: Complete Series DVD ~ It’s a shame the last two seasons are the only ones available on Blu-ray. I decided to go for the complete DVD set since that’s the case. This is the first time I’ve seen it this low… (It was a 2019 re-package apparently.) I checked the information to see if it might be an item for a different region, but it said nothing about region anywhere. We’ll see how it goes! :lol:

I just noticed that Steven Universe has a complete collection DVD out! That includes the movie and Future, too. I’ll have to get that eventually when I find it at the right price. :) Might buy Crazy Rich Asians' Blu-ray, we’ll see. It’s only $6 right now. I might get Galavant's DVD sometime in the next month, since I think its price is locked and never shifts like with other items. I’ve had the soundtrack since it first released, and that was enough for me to get by with in the meantime, but I want the show eventually. It’s been a while now.

^ The odd thing is it's not available through Disney Movie Club. I know, because I looked recently when I was thinking about different things I could order the next time I re-start my account (I'm thinking of getting the rest of OUAT and LOST that I don't have that way). Weird since it did air on ABC?

Yes, it did air on ABC...maybe the other production company that made it won't allow it to be sold on DMC or something? No idea...

Promising Young Woman Blu-ray ~ $4.70-ish? There was a coupon with it. I intended to buy it if it was ever this cheap and miraculously there it was. Plus, this way I can loan it to others to let them finally watch it if they haven't.
Supernatural's Fifteenth / Final Season Blu-ray ~ $12.99 ~ A little more than I've paid for the other seasons, but it's only been priced $34+ for the longest time. The OCD part of me is glad to have them all together now. :lol:

Everything I got on Black Friday:

On BD:

-The Conjuring 3
-Godzilla vs Kong
-Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
-Dumbo (live action)
-Toy Story 4
-Soul
-Solo: A Star Wars Story
-Batman Returns (used-would have bought it new but wasn´t available).

On DVD:

-Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (because I own the rest on DVD as well).

I got as a gift:

-Game of Thrones Season 8 (BD)

I got for gifts:

-The Conjuring 3 (BD)
-The Nun (BD)
-Cinderella (live action) on DVD ; wanted it on BD but wasn´t availble
-Shazam (BD)

So now I need Raya, Onward and Luca to own all the Disney and Pixar movies at the moment.

As for live action I´m still missing for sure Cruella and Christopher Robin.

...said for sure because, initially, I wanted to own all the live actions. However, I know for sure I won´t be getting The Little Mermaid when it comes out (not even going to watch it). The Lady and the Tramp isn´t certain if it´ll be available and I don´t care at all for it anyways. Then there´s The Lion King that I hate the shot by shot remake it was. And there´s Mulan that was meh and, at the same time, a let down for me. So I´m not sure if I´ll be getting those.

PS

Regarding Disney and Pixar movies...I´ll own them all just because I´m a completist but Raya was VERY meh to me. As for Pixar: Toy Story 4 was so not needed, didn´t deliver and brought down the story. Onward was meh. Soul is the best for sure but is a movie I´m not sure how many times I´d like to rewatch. Luca is very good as well. However, I´ve seen so many coming of age movies that it was just another one for me.

Because of that I want to own them but it´s very hard for me to even want to get them.

I never bought Raya and the Last Dragon, someone gave me a free code so I own it on digital but I don't really watch that, there are much better options. Onward is another film I didn't get. I'm at a point where I don't really want to waste money on movies I don't really care about, everything is on streaming anyway so i'll just watch them there, though it isn't likely that I will to be honest.

As said, I´m only getting them because I´m a compeltist. Because, if I´m being honest: Fantasia is maginificent but a movie I rarely watch (I´d watch more often Fantasia 2000 because it´s shorter), Lady and the Tramp has incredible animation but I find it extremely boring, I dislike The Fox and the Hound, Oliver and Company never gets to me, I HATE Home on the Range...

So yes, I´m just a completist. :wink:

PS

Besides, as meh as I found Raya (EXTREMELY meh) it´s still not a movie I hate like Home on the Range.

PS1

Even Ralph Breaks the Internet I don´t find very good. The message is great. However, they didn´t need the Wreck it Ralph characters (ruining the Ralph and Vanellope friendship in the process) and the Star Wars and Marvel IPs destroys it.

Quick question for The original Jaws And it’s 2013 Blu-ray and digital copy combo: are the promotional photos you can watch In the Jaws archives on the Blu-ray the same promotional material that’s viewed in the shark is still working documentary? Or is it all completely different?

The Lansbury reference in the title... :(

So I re-started my Disney Movie Club again; I always wait for the paper offers to come in the mail rather than ending my account myself and all that bother, plus it keeps me from doing it too often. I got Turning Red, Luca, Encanto, Oliver & Company, and A Goofy Movie Blu-rays, those were the best of what was offered on the insert (I wish The Jungle Book or Mulan had been options). And I'll be glad to be able to watch the first three again!
