Tag Archives: 50% off Criterion Collection

Best. Wife. Ever.

With roughly 12 hours left to go on the once-yearly Criterion Collection 50% off sale-a-bration at Barnes & Noble, my wife did something really cool this weekend. We were at the mall and I said: “Hey, I’m just gonna pop into Barnes & Noble and drool over the Criterion Blu-Rays, is that cool?” And she said, with no provocation: “You can spend $50.00.” Zoinks?!

I know that doesn’t sound like a lot of money to most people, but, we haven’t been exactly rolling with the Rockefellers these days, so, she might as well have said $100, and, shit, with the Blu-Rays marked down 50%, that’s kinda what she did.

Then, the icing on the cake came when she finished with: “I’ll watch Greta, you go shop.” Sweet Jesus! Kinder, gentler were never spoken. I kid you not, I practically skipped into that damn bookstore. And half an hour later, I walked out with three movies (two beautiful new Blu-Rays and one DVD) for the low, low price of $51.28. Crazy, huh?

And that is one of the many, many reasons that this here film geek has the Best. Wife. Ever. I love you, sweetie. Oh, and, just to be clear, I don’t just love her because she lets me buy geeky shit for myself. Nope, she did the dishes tonight too, and I didn’t even have to ask.

I repeat. Best. Wife. Ever.

Criterion Collection 50% off @ Barnes & Noble

Yep, you read that correctly, Criterion’s entire collection of super-cool, super-expensive DVD’s and Blu-Rays are on sale now through August 1st at Barnes & Noble. Awesome, huh?

Not only does the Criterion Collection offer the finest selection of classic, foreign and cult films anywhere, but they also feature some of the most beautifully-designed artwork ever. Sometimes, I actually go to the store just to look at the boxes…such a geek!

Anyway, if cool movies and artwork are not enough for you, consider this, Criterion Collection DVD’s and Blu-Rays hardly ever go on sale. So, if you or someone you love (hint, hint, Mrs. Yeti) is a fan of truly great films, get thee to a Barnes & Noble pronto.

And, no, I was not paid for this post. But, if someone at Criterion wants to send me a Blu-Ray copy of Nobuhiko Obayashi’s freaky-good “House” as payment. I’ll take it!
