  1. Yes, same here! I also have trouble with the on-demand videos. They keep freezing and they black out. Right now, only the West Coast feed is working properly. It must be a bug problem. This app should be updated more often.
  2. Can anyone bring this entire list up to date?
  3. Don't forget he also directed White Christmas (1954). The film was the highest-grossing film of 1954.
  4. Yes, it was a Criterion release on laserdisc. I don't know exactly the year it was released. There were many classic MGM/Warner/RKO films released on laserdisc through Criterion a long time ago. Here is the link on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Criterion_Collection_Laserdisc_releases That is probably why they are re-releasing The Asphalt Jungle. There may be hope for other classic movies (mostly from the Turner library) worthy of the Criterion treatment.
  5. The Asphalt Jungle was given the Criterion treatment on laserdisc before.
  6. The Criterion copy of "The Wicked Lady" is leaving Prime.
  7. Thanks! I appreciate it. I hope the Paramount Vault picks up films such as "About Mrs. Leslie," "Alaska Seas," and "Knock on Wood." However, I wonder if the new streaming service FilmStruck will pick up the discarded titles or is it exclusively Criterion?
  8. The last three "essentials" you mentioned, "The House Across the Bay," "Trade Winds," and "Vogues of 1938" are also leaving Prime.
  9. This is an alert concerning Amazon Prime members. I checked my watchlist which consists of classic films and I just found out that almost all of the classic films (mostly from the MGM, Paramount, and Republic libraries) are leaving Prime at the end of this month. I'm not sure if they'll ever return. Does anyone have any idea what's going to happen to them or where they will go to? Please let me know.
  10. That's understandable. However, there is another thing that is confusing to me. When a film has been shown on the WatchTCM app and placed on-demand, that same particular film is suddenly blocked the next time. For example, Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) has been available on the WatchTCM app before, but suddenly, on the night of this year's Fourth of July broadcast, it was blocked from the app. How does that happen when one time a film is shown on-demand and the next time it's blocked?
  11. Don't forget about leasing the rights to show a film on mobile devices. I'm still trying to understand why certain films cannot be shown on these devices.
  12. Yes, if you don't spend $25 or more on your order. The shipping fee is at least $2.98.
  13. The July Criterion Collection 50% Off sale at Barnes & Noble begins today and ends on August 1st, in stores and online!
  14. For those who own a Roku device, the PlayStation Vue service is now available on Roku and it's also now available nationwide. The following prices for each package are: The Access Slim package (55+ channels) is $29.99 a month, the Core Slim package (70+ channels) is $34.99 a month, and the Elite Slim package (100+ channels) is $44.99 a month. Unfortunately, TCM is only available in the Core and Elite packages.
  15. I'm just curious, but is the September 5th daytime lineup a salute to the annual Telluride Film Festival?They have done the festival tribute on TCM every Labor Day by showing films that have been recognized by Telluride. Is it going on this year or is it not?
  16. I'm sorry, as much as I like Anchorman (2004), I don't think of the movie as a slapstick classic, just a comedy. It doesn't belong on TCM, not for a very, very long time. Airplane! (1980) deserved to be part of the slapstick spotlight lineup more than Anchorman. It feels like a slap across the face when I think of the programming department choosing a 12-year-old comedy over a 36-year-old comedy masterpiece.
  17. ANCHORMAN (2004)?!! ARE THEY SERIOUS?!! What they should have done is to include a certain little modern slapstick classic called AIRPLANE! (1980) instead! That would have completed the prime time ZAZ triple feature. What is going on with the programming?!
  18. Today at Barnes & Noble, there are thousands of DVD's and Blu-Rays on sale at 40% off, including many Criterion titles (pre-order Criterions excluded). In addition to the sale, there is a special Father's Day discount of 20% plus free express shipping. Today is the only time to take advantage of both offers for the Father's Day offer expires tonight.
  19. The list of names is up (Just the names, not the schedule yet). Go to the the Summer Under The Stars thread, under "2016 SCHEDULE."
  20. With the 2015 Summer Under The Stars festival coming to a close, can anyone count and post the total number of stars featured in August to date. since the festival's inception in 2003, as well as any other fun statistics about the festival (such as the number of times each star has been showcased), please?
  21. I'm trying to understand how the licensing of films to be aired on television is different from the licensing of films being aired on computers and mobile devices? Why can't we watch certain movies on these devices? Is the programming department trying to fix the problem? How do we know which movies are being blocked? It just doesn't make sense! It's also frustrating!
  22. I think the use of the first-person POV technique was successful because it makes the audience more curious. At the beginning, you can't really tell whether the character is guilty or innocent just by looking at the character's face, you can just study only his actions and his thoughts.
  23. It is usually rare that the femme fatale is the first person we see in a film noir, and already in action!
  24. I think that opening scene of the film is the most important part of the plot. While the subject of infidelity is the main point of the story, it really is the backdrop of the railroad business and how the running of that business coincides with the characters' personal lives.
