Are there any silent films and westerns included in this sale? If so, any recommendations? Preferably spaghetti westerns but I'll take any recommendation you have.

There isn't much point in placing and order now and placing another one in a week or two to 'space things out'....money gets spent the same either way and it's not like I can't afford it.
Such as it is, I'm at an impasse and can't make up my mind. So, I'll just step away from it for a few days and take some stress off myself. In the grand scheme of life, I don't need those blus. I've spent a decent amount of money on movies the last 2 months that it's starting to become ridiculous (to me) on a personal level.
I feel you. Luckily, there's only four sale titles I really want, but after the $200 I dropped on the VS sale, even spending only an additional $50 has me debating it in my head.

Do you know, why amazon is allowed to ship internationally Code A titles and you aren´t? I ordered a few Kino titles via amazon, but normally there prices cannot compete with your sales prices and I would order way more Kino releases, if I could order directly during your own sales.

Well Airport's out as there are no 1970 titles left, there's no Heston titles in the deal, and there's no Delon titles, so I'd say we can rule out any of the Airport films being the double-dips.

Smart money right now is on most of the double-dips being Clint Eastwood titles, though we can discount Two Mules for Sister Sara being one of them.

I gave my Kino BD of "The Oscar" a watch the other night. Not sure what night it was, as days are running together at this point, pants are a 50/50 proposition at this juncture. "The Oscar" goes down in the annals and has been mythologized as a total campfest, and while it is sufficiently campy for us aficionados, there are actually quite a few films that ratchet the campiness factor quite a bit higher. So, what is it that makes this particular movie stand out?

I believe it's that Stephen Boyd plays Frankie Fane, the single most unrepentant, despicable a-hole I have ever seen in any film, at least that I can recall. And he's not a fun, charismatic p*ick that we enjoy watching despite his utter amorality, but a joyless, soulless, purely sociopathic weirdo devoid of any emotions other than rage and greed. It's such a bizarre character and we spend two excruciating hours with this dude. His sociopathy would make Ted Bundy blush.

Boyd is an actor I enjoy in most films I've seen him in, but this part does him no favors. He plays it at such a relentlessly intense, manic level and the part is written as utterly charmless, making it a character you simply can't wait to get away from. You can't ask the viewer to spend two hours with an amoral psycho and make him uninteresting and charisma-free; it's a fatal flaw. He's just an a**hole, a guy you don't want to be around, the insufferable moron who yells at the waiter in a restaurant among various other acts of a**hattery.

The film doesn't really let the viewer in as to why Frankie achieves success in Hollywood, as he doesn't seem to have any discernible acting talent and has a personality that makes Charles Manson's look agreeable. The supporting cast is by far the best part of the film, with Eleanor Parker, Elke Sommer and Jill St. John all looking absolutely beautiful, but given little to do. Sommer has some great camp moments at least, but the film is a thorough embarrassment across the board. The script is possibly the worst offender, as it manages to leave out huge chunks of necessary plot while also being completely overwritten and tedious, with absolutely no clue how to write a halfway compelling character.

Legendary crooner Tony Bennett is on hand to give a wooden performance as Boyd's best buddy, who moves out to LA to be with the psychopath for some inexplicable reason. Milton Berle and his enormous penis play Boyd's agent and Uncle Miltie looks and acts like he took the paycheck from this film and spent it all on quaaludes. Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan and Broderick Crawford all swing by for fairly brief appearances because I'm guessing all three needed to pay for work on their respective houses.

"The Oscar" is simply a terrible film. But it is quite a fascinating trainwreck and the Boyd character is one of the most inexplicable, bizarre creations ever put on screen. You have to wonder what Boyd was thinking when he chose to play this role. "Wow, I get a chance to play a titanic f**kstick with no charm or redeeming qualities. Sign me up!" For lovers of absurdly bad cinema, it's an easy recommendation.

I blind-bought this in the March sale and haven't gotten around to watching it yet. I usually enjoy these star-studded jaunts no matter how bad, but this sounds dire. But as a fan of Elke Sommer, I guess I can suffer through it...

The difference is that Amazon is a "generic" store, and can get away with selling products marketed for the US to other countries. Kino, being a company that only sells their own products, is more restricted.

So, a licensor, like say, Universal, might get on Kino's case about selling titles that Universal has licensed to Koch Media or whomever in Germany. Because Koch might be less inclined to license more titles if they think Kino is a competitor in their market.

On the other hand, Amazon has a lot of muscle. If Universal complained about Amazon selling Kino releases to someone in Germany, Amazon could come back with a "OK, if you feel that way, we won't sell any Universal product to anyone anywhere." Which could be bad for Universal's business, so they'll let Amazon get away with it.

But regardless of the reason why, Kino probably doesn't think they'd have enough income for from foreign orders to compensate for any hassle they might get for marketing their products to countries they haven't licensed for.

Well, looks like BarnDoor was right again. The Agatha Christie titles will be announced individually rather than as a boxset. I can finally retire my Japanese blu of DEATH ON THE NILE. I never did buy the UK StudioCanal remaster from a few years ago.

What do you think tomorrow will be BarnDoor? THE MIRROR CRACK'D or EVIL UNDER THE SUN? Or maybe neither?
