Not physical, but since we talk about them a lot, Arrow Video is also having a 10th Anniversary Sale on iTunes

Why have I never seen that movie?! I remember seeing the poster for it in a video store as a kid and freaking out. 

BTW, that is now already sold out

I'm not sure how long the sale lasts, but if it is still going two weeks from now when I get paid again, I'm strongly considering the Bergmam box set.

Well, there goes about $165.

And I did it without Go Fund Me. Autumn Sonata and I will be quite happy.

Went to Half Priced Books with some old DVDs. Got 11 bucks for them. Also had a 50% off coupon. Ended up getting The Godfather Collection on blu and paid nothing for it. I've never been a big fan of The Godfather but here in the last few months I've had a stranger hankering for it. Almost got that Vestron Maximum Overdrive bluray instead. 

I also picked up Predator for 6 bucks because I don't have it and my wife said she wants to see it. We might end up watching it today which sounds like a good Sunday.

Not a bad trip.

Wallet not yet recovered from the Criterion and Arrow sale?  Well, the Warner Archive is running their "4 for $44" (really, "4+ for $11 each") sale until tomorrow.

They apparently have the rights to like the first five movies (excluding King Kong vs. Godzilla).  I'd be really interested in a criterion just for the under appreciated second Godzilla movie "Godzilla Raids Again".

They've got the rights to more than just five. They have at least this many for the last 2 years:

Godzilla (1954)
Godzilla Raids Again (1955)
Godzilla: King of the Monsters (1956)
Rodan (1956)
Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964)
Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster (1964)
Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965)
War of the Gargantuas (1966)
Son of Godzilla (1967)
Destroy All Monsters (1968)
All Monsters Attack (1969)
Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)
Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1974)
Terror of MechaGodzilla (1975)

It would seem odd since they already did Godzilla not that long ago. 

Given that #100 was the Beastie Boys video, im expecting  #1000 to be something non-traditional. 

Of course, part of me hopes it is finally Grand Budapest Hotel.

Setting aside Rodan and War of the Gargantuans (which presumably came with the Classic Media Godzilla films) they have 11 of the 15 first series/Showa Era* films.

The aforementioned King Kong vs Godzilla is held (I believe in perpetuity) by Universal, while Ebriah, Horror of the Deep (aka Godzilla vs the Sea Monster), Godzilla vs Hedorah (aka Godzilla vs the Smog Monster) and Godzilla vs Gigan (aka Godzilla on Monster Island) are held by Kraken Releasing (a division of anime distributor Section 23)

There are some questions on Son of Godzilla and Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla. Both are on the Criterion Channel, but digital versions are still sold through Vudu/Amazon/etc with the the other films owned by Sony (everything from the 90's and 00's) so nobody seems quite sure if Sony still owns the DVD/Blu-ray rights or not (neither have been in print in the U.S. since the mid-00's, and copies sell for way too much)

They are also the only two Godzilla movies I don't have on disc, and two of the four I don't have in the original Japanese (along with KKvG and Godzilla vs Billoante) so I hope Criterion does put them out.

 

*U.S. fans tend to call it the Showa Era, but that is a bit of culture ignorance and/or indifference, given that The Return of Godzilla, the first movie of the second series, was released during the Showa Era, not the Heisei Era that it's always listed as part of.

Also, if it is a Godzilla boxset, and it's out in October or November, and the B&N 50% sale is, per usual, back in November.... *Insert "shut up and take my money" meme here*

Those are on TV every year, so who are the ones parceling the rights out? 

I've always wondered why it's those two (and Terror of Mechagodzilla) that always air why I've NEVER seen King Kong vs. Godzilla or half the rest of them. This goes back to when TNT would show them when I was a kid.

Was surprised to see one of the local BN stores had closed. 

Many Criterions bought there. 😞 

edit. It turns out they moved from one shopping center to another one a mile or so away. In fact, it might be in the same footprint where that local Borders used to be.

Target's website suddenly listed a Godzilla: The Showa Era body box set for $149.99

It doesn't mention Criterion in the listing, but...

It also vanished pretty much as soon as someone discovered it
