Barnes & Noble yet again runs an Arrow %-off (not sure how much) sale concurrent to their Criterion sale.  And Amazon is matching this one; got Switchblade Sisters and Willie Dynamite for 19.99 and 21.99 (respectively), when they usually go for 27.99+.

I’m jealous! Amazon.ca isn’t running the same promotion. The Arrow and Criterion distributor for Canada, Unobstructed View, is independently owned and can’t really match those prices, but at least it’s 40% off Criterion, and most of the older Arrow titles are between 25-45% off. Plan to pick up MEMORIES OF MURDER and ROBOCOP later this month.

Glad I didn’t import the UK release!

This is up for pre-order on Amazon. I’ve been very good at avoiding Amazon and spending money with smaller/less evil sellers, but I couldn’t pass this up at 41% off.

The Mighty Peking Man trailer is NSFW for nudity, btw. 

Pretty sure I'll be able to find Phantasm II by illicit means but they'd be dumb not to do a separate release. Fans are gonna be drooling for that, and that box is probably already sold out.

I wonder if someone is working on the SLEEPY EYES OF DEATH series. It’s fine OOP at Animeigo, and the series has been removed from streaming services like Hoopla and Kanopy. Last time I noticed something like that, it was all the Gamera films disappearing.

THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN looks like fun. Canada won’t be getting HIGH SIERRA or UNCUT GEMS. That seems to be happening more frequently.

Incredible Shrinking Man is bomb af.

I have a truly embarrassing amount of films on order right now (many of them pre-orders):

 

Daimajin Trilogy

Cold War Creatures: Four Films from Sam Katzman

The Siege (1983)

Memories of Murder

Robocop

Basie-Moi

The Clockmaker of St. Paul

The Beast and the Magic Sword

Ninja 3: The Domination

Mad Max UHD

Demons 1 & 2 UHD

Dead and Buried UHD

Suspiria UHD

 

Anyway, all of these were on sale, but this is still definitely the result of the pandemic doing something to my brain.

Also I am looking forward to all of these films immensely.
