Like an Arby’s selling piles of loose beef, the Criterion Collection has opened the floodgates on their store and is selling their entire DVD and Blu-ray stock for 50% off for the next 24 hours.
This is a fantastic sale that every film buff should consider taking advantage of. The Criterion Collection sells the definitive home video restorations of hundreds of classic films, everything from 20s silents to one of last year’s Oscar nominees. They have a formidable storefront, and if you’ve ever wanted to start your own film library, this is the best place to jump in and pick up a few great titles. DVDs that might normally cost $40 are selling for $20, which is a steal considering the extra content and commentary packed onto each disc.
If you’re having trouble figuring out what to buy, check out Criterion’s sale dashboard, which tracks the most popular films as well as which ones have almost run out. As of this writing, there’s only a few copies of Videodrome left. Go go go!
