Criterion The Killing (1956)

Just thought I'd start up a thread on this since when I checked there wasn't one yet. Coming on Criterion blu-ray release. Includes a 55 minute film "Killer's Kiss" in the special features.



The Killing / Killer's Kiss Blu-ray

The Killing / Killer's Kiss Blu-ray Review

Looks good! From critically acclaimed director Stanley Kubrick.

Anyone else looking forward to this?

The 1080p screens posted on this website indicate this is a phenominal transfer. Sharp as a tack. The ones for Killers Kiss, OK but not so great. Can't wait to watch this.

Looking forward to this too...Still trying to finish up all the Kubrick movies that I got in the box set before this comes out. Still have to watch the Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut (don't worry I've seen all of them multiple times already).

Here's a link to another review: DVD Beaver Review

My only decision is whether to keep my Amazon preorder or hold off until the next B&N sale.

But I'll definitely be picking it up one way or the other.

Kiss Me Deadly was a great film. I think I will get The Killing with my $25 amazon credit due to a moronic marketplace seller. I enjoy Heist films so this one looks like a winner to me

Just picked up KISS yesterday and watched it last night. I was not disappointed. Can't wait for the Killing.

I just received an email that my Deep discount pre-order shipped today, nearly a week earlier. Granted, DD is notorious for slow shipping so it may not get here before the 8/16/11 release date, but still I was surprised.

Yesterday, I got the email from deepdiscount saying that my order shipped out from California, and when I looked at my tracking today I saw that it's already here in Massachusetts. I expect that I'll have it in my hands tomorrow or Thursday.

Makes the recent lackluster catalog titles like The Big Lebowski and The Fox and the Hound look even more disappointing in comparison. Oh well, I'm glad that both titles got the treatment they deserve.

Looks like $25 on Amazon is the best deal right now...

No wait, $23.99 at Deep Discount with free shipping...

Can't wait for this...such a great film. Unfortunately, finances dictate I wait until the next B&N sale.

Is that $1 savings really worth having no idea when DDD is going to deliver your product? The last time I ordered something from them it literally took a week to get a shipping notice and a month for the package to arrive.
