Took advantage of this to buy exactly 1 thing. The choice was difficult and the promo wouldn't work for future releases (or else I would've gladly gotten that new release of  Le Samourai dirt cheap). Ended up getting the BRay/DVD combo of A Hard Day's Night though it was by no means an easy decision

I really wanted To Be Or Not To Be and there are so many that are out of print like Ran, The Third Man and for fuck sake the fact I can only get the CC version of Head in the Raffelson box is really damn annoying. Of course I wnant all th Kurosawa as well as stuff like McCabe & Mrs. Miller

The 50% Barnes & Noble sale is on now.  Probably keeping it light this year, I was wanting Chimes at MidnightOthelloPunch Drunk Love, and Robinson Crusoe on Mars.  But, Othello is a set and pricey even at the DVD level, the Robinson Crusoe... DVD is out of stock (or print) online, Chimes would be a blind buy (but after reading Jae's write-up, getting that thing is inevitable), and Punch Drunk Love is, well, probably one I'll get since it's not too expensive.

This movie has been on my Pile of Shame for nearly a year. 

I had no idea it made the CC in October.

OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT That's awesome. Maybe a Zatoichi style box set in our future for Godzilla. That's my dream.

Wife got me McCabe and Mrs. Miller for my birthday. and 25$ gift card to B&N. Don't know what I'll get.

Of new stuff, I would say Othello or Barry Lyndon. I think Philadelphia Story came out today.

The Zatoichi box set would weigh approximately ten thousand pounds.

Criterion releasing Night of the Living Dead!!!

 

All of those exclamation points are merited.

 

Also Kon Ichikawa’s An Actor’s Revenge which is pretty bad ass.

YES!!! My OG Elite DVD of it went missing ages ago (not the box though, which is one of those "twist the knife" type things)

My copy of the new release Le Samourai is in my grubby hands and I couldn't be happier!

This is why I tend to buy Criterions of movies I have already seen and donate the original DVDs replaced by the Criterions to Goodwill or something. 

It's not really a Pile of Shame if you've previously watched those movies, or at least that is my excuse.

I really should watch give Brian De Palma's Sisters (1973) another watch.

Yeah, the pile is mostly stuff i have seen at least once: Jabberwocky, Othello, Barry Lyndon, tampopo, ...

As time grows nearer to its release, I keep getting tempted by the Olympics box set.

Picked up the CC of Carnival Of Souls. I have loved this movie since I was a kid.
