I just wanted to do a quick post this evening to express my appreciation for the availability of the movies that I watched and posted about this last week. I went to my local library in order to find some interesting movies to use on my blog. My library will allow me to check out five movies at a time, so I carefully tried to select different types off movies in order to have a variety of things to talk about. It was only when I arrived home that I noticed that all five of the movies I selected were part of The Criterion Collection. I thought that it was unusual to have picked five Criterion movies because when you take out the Eclipse Series (which my library doesn’t have at all) there are just over 600 movies in the Criterion Collection. To find five that I had never seen before at my local library seemed unlikely. The five movies that I watched this week were:
- I Know Where I’m Going (1945)
- The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1928)
- And God Created Woman (1956)
- The Killers (1946)
- The River (1951)
Each of these five films was presented in the highest quality available, and many of the discs included insightful and informative bonus features. I was able to enjoy and find five important, historical movies that were easy to watch and post about, without having to pay anything at all. I just wanted to take a minute to thank the Criterion Collection for their continued excellence in bringing the greatest movies in the world into my life, and I wanted to thank my local library for having not just every day run of the mill movies, but these specialty movies as well.
Right now, Barnes And Noble is having a 50% off sale on every Criterion Collection Blu-ray and DVD. This includes every single movie in the collection and can be used in their stores or online. It is a great opportunity to catch any of the titles that you may have been waiting to see.Back to Home for More Reviews
