Reportedly, the Criterion Collection 24 hour flash sale will start tomorrow at noon (EST). It's usually 50% MSRP.

familyvideo.com has a sale on Arrow Video (USA) titles right now. Some very good prices! I picked up Bloodstained Butterfly on blu-ray for $12.50 (MSRP $39.95). Stock seems to come and go a little, so check back if they're out.

The sale ends March 31st.

Right now, "Home Entertainment Online" is selling the BFI blu-ray set of Pioneers of African American Cinema on Amazon.co.uk for 19.99 GBP. Three sets left in stock as of this moment. That's a killer price, down from the usual 40 GBP (and waay below the 70 GBP RRP)!

It's a 5-disc set of silent films by African American filmmakers. The only downside to this deal is that they won't ship to the US (but apparently other European countries are just fine).

It's exactly the same, it's just the UK version. The Kino set is down to ~$47 on Amazon, which is the lowest I've seen so far, but still no match for 20 GBP (~$25).

Right.. I was just wanting to confirm. ;)

$20-25 is definitely a good find for this set, and is really worth it. (Plenty of rare and official checks :D ) I paid $45 for the Kino set back in December, and didn't feel ripped off.

The BFI/Photoplay restoration of Birth of a Nation on blu-ray is 8.99 GBP on Amazon UK right now, down from 17.99 GBP (it was down to 14.99 just before Christmas, but that's the lowest it's been until now).

Low stock, be quick.

Yeah, I went through the first 7 pages after posting here and decided to stop then. 10 is a lot! Still, if you want four of those 12,99 euro blurays, it's cheaper to add six extra titles.

Looks like Amazon.co.uk is on a price-match roll with HMV. Just picked up Battleship Potemkin/Drifters, Great White Silence/Epic of Everest for 7.99 GBP each and Charlie Chaplin: The Mutual Films Collection for 13.99 GBP. All of them are BFI releases.

This is getting to be an expensive month with all the sales going on.

Arrowfilms.co.uk has just started their summer sale. Lots of great titles on blu for 7.99 GBP: Bicycle Thieves, Night of the Hunter, Dressed to Kill, and many more.

Amazon is selling Flicker Alley's DVD box set Landmarks of Early Soviet Film for $27.68. That's by far the cheapest I've ever seen it go for, it's usually around $50-55.

The 4-disc set contains DVD versions of: "Sergei M. Eisenstein's last silent and seldom seen Old and New (1929); Dziga Vertov's Stride, Soviet (1926); Victor Turin's Turksib (1930); Esther Shub's The Fall of the Romanov Dynasty (1927); Boris Barnet's The House on Trubnaya (1928); Lev Kuleshov's The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks (1924) and By the Law (1926); and Mikhail Kalatozov's Salt for Svanetia (1930)."

Yeah, it's not that impressive, to be honest.

They do offer free world-wide shipping, but they don't subtract the VAT for non-EU purchases...

$20.97 for a Blu-ray and $31.38 for the shipping to Europe. That's $52.35. I think I'll have to think about that sale.

It may not happen this January, but last January, Family Video had an amazing sale of Arrow Video titles. I bought Bloodstained Butterfly for $13. On blu. If not, this is a pretty nice sale (especially if you can work in a coupon).

Kino Lorber is having a big sale on Studio Classics titles, NA residents only sorry ):

https://www.klstudioclassics.com/list/v ... /aug18sale

includes the PdA/Carmel-endorsed This World, Then the Fireworks for $7.

Note, KL Studio Classics can be pretty hit or miss with the quality. check blu-ray.com, dvdbeaver and the like first, maybe.

Amazon.com is currently selling the Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection on blu-ray for just $19.99. That's a steal for five classic Marx Brothers comedies!

EDIT: MSRP on this set is $59.99, so it's 66.67% off!
