Warner Archives Discussion

Recommended Posts

I like the collections, and usually buy those because they are better deals for the price and what you get. I wish they would just do more of those. I not only can afford them, but dig them!

And it should be noted that The FBI is part 1 of Season 1, only the first 16 of the season.

 

But I still want it.

New sale, but not great. Buy 2 single-DVD titles and get 1 free. Free shipping. Ends up being $40 for three on an average...works out to about $13.33 a title. Definitely not as good as 5 for $50, but some titles are marked down to $17.95, so about $12 a piece. Plus tax. I think I just might go for this. Want to get The Boyfriend, Don Juan, and -30-.

 

Expires 5/31.

Just ordered THE GREAT DIVIDE (1929), HEAT LIGHTNING (1934) and THE PRISONER OF ZENDA (1922). After tax it works out to about $14.46 a title. Certainly not the worst deal, but I do agree, I liked the 5 for $50 deal much better.

I want it too, but $39.99 for half a season???

15 more shows for pt 2, will it cost basically $80 to get the first season?(save some sale)

If so, they will no doubt say sales don't warrant putting out future seasons.

I guess WB thinks they could get this exhorbitant price so that is why it is priced like it is. There are some people who don't care how much as long as they want it. Speaking to customer service I was told many people put in hugh orders for these releases (without thinking price) and that is why the sales now are so infrequent. They are making more money on these DVD-R's than when they released pressed DVD's or box sets. Personallty, I am being very selective and not interested in purchasing TV shows. Would like to take a look at them as a rental but not purchase.

I remember Hearts of the West being very good - it's got Jeff Bridges, Blythe Danner and Andy Griffith in a gentle story about silent movie stunt men.

I have never seen Assignment To Kill either, but have watched Dark Of The Sun when it was on TCM and actually own the Thai DVD. I already ordered the Warner Archive DVD edition because of the fact that it is remastered and looks way better than the Thai DVD. I would recommend Dark Of The Sun. I really believe that Rod Taylor's and Jim Brown's performances are the best of their career's in Dark Of The Sun. There is a high level of violence for a PG rated movie, I would consider the content more of a high PG-13. If that doesn't bother you, then I would recommend the movie. Here's two reviews of Dark Of The Sun from DVD Beaver and DVDTalk:

I was wondering, is there any chance of DVDs from the Warners Archive Collection also being offered to EXCLUSIVE retail outlets like BARNES AND NOBLE? I do not like ordering over the phone or though the computer as it does not generate the same kind of rush that I got from browsing through my local Barnes and Noble's DVD shelves. Also, call me foolish, but I do not like sharing personal information like Credit Card Accounts over the phone or the computer. Besides, alot of my DVD purchases in stores were not planned out by looking through catalogues or WEB sites, they were based on something that I saw, while browsing, that happened to catch my eye because it looked interesting. That means the front and the back of the DVD, as well as any extras that might have been listed on the DVDs. I know these Warner Archive DVDs are DVDRs, not pressed DVDs and as such they, for whatever reason, do not have extras, have not been restored, digitally remastered, or anything else that was done to enhance the attraction of films that were put onto pressed DVDs, but all the same, it would be nice to be able to browse through them at stores and increase my collection.

there's probably no chance of that, infinite1, because the Warner Archive DVDRs are made to order; if the manufacturer doesn't inventory them then there's no way a retailer is going to either.

ok, but MOVIES UNLIMITED and CRITICS CHOICE are retailers, via catalogue it's true, but retailers nonetheless. Why should they have access to WARNERS ARCHIVES when BARNES and NOBLE does not? If it's more convienient for some, as well as instilling a "safer" feeling regarding credit card accounts to speak to a live sales rep, why not open it up to BARNES and NOBLE? Unless it's something that B&N dosen't want to get involved in and that's a whole other issue.

Movies Unlimited sells archive titles, but it usually takes 2 to 3 months before the DVD is available for order after Warners releases it on their website. Also, don't forget, but TCM is part of the Time Warner family which includes the Warner Archives.
