Actually disregard the coupons, I just got back from B&N and they said they are no longer accepting any coupons during the criterion sale, only the 10% membership discount.
Reading about it on DVDTalk now, it looks like they are enforcing it everywhere too.
Fucking sucks.

Still ended up picking up Del Toro's Spanish Trilogy, In A Lonely Place, A Touch of Zen, McCabe & Mrs Miller and Carnival of Souls.

Criterion titles will be gone from Hulu this Friday. Criterion has teamed with Turner Classic Movies and will be available on the newly launched FilmStruck, a pay service like Netflix, but with classic films. $10.99/month or $99/year.

Haven't updated this thread with new releases in a long time, but Stalker is deserving of a bump

Image

Other July releases are L'Argent, Lost In America and a BR upgrade for Rosselini's War Trilogy

NOTLD restoration poster, peep the Janus Films note at the bottom :rockout:

Image

Quote:
Night of the Living Dead. 1968. USA. Directed by George A. Romero. Screenplay by Romero and John A. Russo. With Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea, Marilyn Eastman, Karl Hardman. 95 min.

Perhaps the most influential horror film of the last 50 years, George A. Romero’s classic is also one of the most abused—subjected, because of its public-domain status, to well over 100 home video releases of abysmal quality. On November 5, Romero introduces the world premiere of a new 4K digital restoration by MoMA and The Film Foundation. Drawing upon the original camera negative, which was carefully guarded over the years by the members of Image Ten, the Pittsburgh partnership that originally produced it, MoMA and The Film Foundation have returned the film to its full, original glory. From the barrier-breaking casting of an African American leading man (Duane Jones) to its reinvention of the zombie as a metaphorical figure of seemingly infinite richness, this is one American independent movie that has left a profound mark on our culture. Funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation and the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation. The restoration was overseen by George A. Romero and Image Ten—most especially, Gary Streiner, Russ Streiner, and John Russo—with restoration work done by Cineric Inc, NYC, and Audio Mechanics, Burbank, CA. DCP.


Criterion just added a George A Romero page to their website too. About fucking time someone gave this movie the special edition release it deserves.
Just too bad George won't be here to see it. RIP.

Would make my day if Criterion release the definitive version of this classic film.

Been geeked over this since I heard about this restoration project a while ago:

there are rumblings that they now have a bunch of old Godzilla stuff on deck, or at least own the rights to it
