I thought this would be a good thread to start up.

I am sure that some of you have gotten past your DVD owning days, and won't watch some things anymore.

There are others on here who would certainly like to own more. Lets see how this thread works.

If you have any DVDs (or VHS, Blu-Ray, etc.) you want to sell, post them, and post an asking price.

If there are any certain DVDs you are looking for, go ahead and post those too.

This thread may fail miserably, but its worth a try.

I'll start out with what I am looking for in the next post.

Anything Criterion...

I've got a number of things I want to upgrade to Blu-Ray, but won't unless I sell my standard-def DVD.

Ask - there's a good chance I have it (I have a small rental store in my spare room - 1,300+ DVDs).

Just make sure to look at the seller's ratings and be smart.

Yeah, i want to buy "gleaming the cube" with christian slater off there thats like $30 since it is out of print. I was curious, does it go through the same process as if you were buying off amazon anyway? Does the seller get your CC info or anything? Is there a way to track it as well?

All payment is handled through Amazon - they forward the money to the seller's account. The seller doesn't get anything but the fact you've ordered it, paid for it, and your address.

Tracking will come down to the seller - if they provide it, you'll get it. You can always ask for it, but if they're sending it USPS Priority, probably not.

did you know that this is back in print now?

i just got the reissue at borders the other day for around $27.

the extras on it are fantastic, with some great footage of pasolini filming the infamous torture scenes at the end. it definitely takes some of the shock value away when you see all the actors just standing around chatting.

I heard some news that they are releasing a bunch of their Titles on Blu-Ray?

Is this some kind of straight to DVD company?

phisherman
09-18-2008, 01:28 PM
criterion is a branch of the company Janus Films.

their current function is to distribute foreign films that were never picked up for distribution in the united states. in the past they also released quite a few current american movies, though this was more the case when they were still creating laserdiscs. the criterion collection is also known for getting the highest quality print to work from and having the best extras/supplemental materials.

salo itself is considered to be the "rarest DVD in the world". it was pulled out of print in the late 90's because of a licensing conflict with Pasolini's family and the Grimaldis. the original "white ring" criterion version of this movie can sell for upwards of $1000.

since salo has been rereleased, i'd assume that now some of the john woo movies, like hard boiled, are now considered the rarest.

I owned Hard Boiled for a while, it came on the Special Edition of the video game, cant remember what it was called.

I sold it back to Gamestop though.

Thats cool. I don't even know what Salo is.

i'll say this, Salo is a one of a kind movie.

Shoot, Pasolini was a one of a kind director.

If you can eat dinner while Salo is playing, I salute you. It's the most disgusting, chilling, evil film I've ever seen.

The current Japanese gorefest movies have nothing on Salo.

I did... I was really being sarcastic. Anyone that would know what Salo is, know Criterion, and actually HAVE a copy of it on Criterion wouldn't sell it for $20.

Yes, Criterion is starting Blu-Ray.

And apparently Wes Anderson and Michael Bay are on the board of directors. Criterion LOVES WA, and both The Rock and Armageddon are Criterion.

Criterion has always been a company interested primarily in distributing highly influential and controversial work.

And they have stunning DVD transfers. I'm very interested to see a Criterion Blu-Ray. :drool:

here's a funny one, there has been a version of Salo floating around for a long time, easily available, put out by the British Film Institute. They also are branching out into Blu-Ray; guess what their first Blu-Ray release is? you guessed it, Salo.

But going into my "critic" mode, I can see in no way how any of his films is controversial or influential. Same with The Rock and Armageddon.

phisherman
09-18-2008, 02:07 PM
Wes Anderson and Michael Bay have both at times gotten films distributed through Disney's Buena Vista Motion Pictures.

That company had some kind of sweetheart deal with Criterion that not only resulted in the release of such films as Armageddon and the Rock on Criterion, but also resulted in several Criterion releases that are quite a bit cheaper than the others.

phisherman
09-18-2008, 02:11 PM

In truth, I think that Salo is an important film, though it is disgusting and hard to watch. Once you get past the grotesque nature of the film itself, technically it's very sound and beautifully shot.

Pasolini is definitely an important director.

The crazy part is, Pasolini got his notoriety for making the bawdy, sexual films The Decameron, The Arabian Nights and the Canterbury Tales. These were known as the Trilogy of Life.

Salo was to be the first in his new series, the Trilogy of Death. Unfortunately, Pasolini was murdered shortly after Salo was completed. Knowing how in-your-face Salo was, I'd love or hate to see what was going to come next.

I know the history, and I'm not arguing the importance of the film or the director. You're 100 percent right on both, and I agree if you get past the nature of the film, it's really quite amazing.

I'm saying why would you want to watch it more than once? You still have to get past the nature of the film, which is grotesque.

i've seen it a bunch of times.

normally it's because some buddy of mine saw Ichii the Killer or Battle Royal and they'll want to convince me that the movie they saw is more disturbing that Salo.

i see your point though; it's not a movie that "gets better" with repeated viewings. just gets easier to not puke when watching it.

I agree with you though.

Like I said before, Criterion originally released movies that were controversial and/or influential.

Seems they've changed their mission a little:

We aim to reflect the breadth of filmed expression. We try not to be restrictive or snobby about what kinds of films are appropriate. An auteur classic, a Hollywood blockbuster, and an independent B horror film each has to be taken on its own terms. All we ask is that each film in the collection be an exemplary film of its kind. Of course we can’t just pick movies and put them out. The process of getting the rights to release a film can take years. Even if we want a film, we can’t work on it unless the film’s owners grant us the rights. Why so few films from South Asia or China?”—and we’re continually working to fill those gaps.
