I'm curious...why did you edit out the original answer you had which was admitting you didn't get the correct price in and now changed it to a somewhat hostile "Whatever"?

What are you watching this thread now?

Glad one of us has time for such.

 

Surely you're asking a rhetorical question and furthermore I owe you no answers. You expect civility, decency and the little kindnesses but never offer. You've targeted/attacked me and my threads, lied about me, slandered me, falsely accused me of your own misdeeds and ran me off the boards - we both know that's just for starters. I don't mention all the filth, profanity, insults, name-calling and further vitriol directed at me over the years as I'm addressing "filmlover" here only.

 

Maybe we'll discuss it more later if you're still curious or decide to call me hostile again.

"lied about me, slandered me, falsely accused me of your own misdeed and run me off the board...I don't mention all the filth, profanity, insults, name-calling and further vitriol directed at me over the years"

 

I have no idea what you are talking about. Anyone here who knows me know that isn't my style.

 

And "over the years"? Since you are registered as less than a year ago, were you banned by TCM and sneaking back under a new name?

 

As to "What are you watching this thread now?", I contribute to it all the time. I created this thread. Matter of fact, in collaboration with the TCM moderator at the time, I created the Classic Film DVD Reviews Forum and 90% of the threads in it.

It most definitely is your style. Clever the way you combined two sentences then denied all. Conveniently ignoring what I meant, seeking to confuse the issues. You're obviously not real big on responsibility for your actions.

 

And wait, you're calling me a liar?

Nobody's sneaking around here. There were a half dozen or more clues and hints to my identity in my first post here as farnsbarns alone. You know damn well who I am. Of course, your entire post is less than ingenuous.

 

Also you failed to point out I've started no threads here, none. Old habits sometimes die hard - I'd found those threads became targets and were a liability. BTW, had policies been applied evenly filmlover for sure would have been banned so don't play better-than-thou with me.

Your reply doesn't even answer the question and you mean "admin", don't you? There was NO moderation at the time and I wouldn't even bother posting here now if that was still the case.

Deepdiscount.com has some excellent prices for their current sale, with many films like *Between Two Worlds*, *Three Strangers*, and *The Long Night* in the $11-12 price range.

 

I've never seen cheaper prices on some of the Chabrol films they have available, like *Les Bonnes Femmes*, and some of the Satyajit Ray films.

There's also a discount code, TURKEY, that will bring the order down by 15%.

FOXCONNECT has special prices on all 8 titles that were voted on for a Blu Ray release. They are split with 4 and 4 @ $40 for each set or $75 for all 8 titles. Fantastic price. Set 1 interests me more with CARMEN JONES, NORTH TO ALASKA, GHOST AND MRS. MUIR and JESSE JAMES. Set two has three good titles and one dud THE UNDEFEATED. Why this title was voted on for release is very odd. Maybe for its stars. Also on the site is an up to 90% off on select titles.

Anybody remember that "Murnau, Borzage and Fox Box Set"that contained 12 DVDs (Lazybones, Street Angel, 7th Heaven, Sunrise, Lucky Star, They Had To See Paris, City Girl, Liliom, After Tomorrow, Young America, Song O' My Heart, Bad Girl, plus a documentary about Murnau and Borzage at Fox)?

 

It will be on special on Amazon on the 30th for about an hour or two for $99.49 starting at 6:20 am. I think you have to be on this page at the link in order to claim it at the time the special goes live, not at the actual item page:

JB HiFi has some great prices for the holidays:

 

MARY POPPINS, BR $15.97

SABRINA, BR, $7.99

FUNNY FACE, BR $7.99

 

Of course there is some postage coming from overseas but its still cheaper than Amazon. These are region free too.

 

Filmlover, are the two Hepburn films minus the extras? This is such a big savings. With postage the two come to about $11.99 each. I am debating whether to purchase these two and forget the extras.

I bought the UK Sabrina and Funny Face and there are no extras. I should have waited for the U.S. releases. Also, it is better getting the Mary Poppins here in the U.S. because the audio is 7.1

Thanx filmlover fl. Maybe I will wait. I do want a better price for MARY POPPINS. I am sure Amazon will lower the prices on the two Hepburn films.
