All Criterion Collection, Eclipse, and Essential Art House series (brands of Criterion) titles are on sale at Barnes & Noble (50% off) until August 1st, both at stores and online. I just got Terrence Malick's Days of Heaven (1978) on bluray and it looks fabulous. Image from DVDBeaver.com. 

What are the Top 5 or 10 discs from your collection? Mine are as follows (all regular ray/dvd):
  1. The Double Life of Véronique  (Kieślowski, 1991) - Slavoj ŽiŽek's essay from included booklet
  2. In the Mood for Love  (Wong, 2000)
  3. Children of Paradise  (Carné, 1945)
  4. Red Beard  (Kurosawa, 1965) - roger ebert's the great movies

real honorable mention (dvd): a woman is a woman (godard, 1961)--the difference between the original dvd and the criterion version is night and day.
