Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi Blu-ray 7.99 each which makes them cheaper than the combo box set.
OK but do note the boxset has come down to £12.99 and even £9.99 before. It's also a very nice package with a book.
Some good films on there. I'd recommend the Big trouble in little china but that's not in the sale. Still a good find though.
Mostly old titles for sale you'd be better off getting the 5 arrow blu rays for £30 from hmv there's a few of the newer titles on there and they work out cheaper that's if there's 5 that you need.
sorry didn't realise there was already a post

Ah, I used http://www.best-bluray-price.co.uk/ to search which is usually pretty accurate.. I didn't think to check Arrow themselves .. thanks for pointing this out!

Buy it for the film, not the packaging.

Don't lecture please. I buy steelbooks occasionally. Because I want to!

Spirits of the Dead for £2.99 and My Darling Clementine (Limited Ed) for £12.99?!
Bargain!! Cheers OP... :D
r4963
Not bad price. I got it for £18 at Amazon few months back before they jacked up price.
More than worth this price. I thoroughly recommend this. Great films, great transfers, superb packaging and brilliant book enclosed.

Likewise, (I posted it as a deal :{ ) . The transfer on both is excellent and a nice looking set. been keeping its value well to around £40ish.

Agreed - took advantage of that Amazon deal myself and it's a very good set.

This is a cut above most of the Arrow stuff trust me. Its not silly gory horror nonsense if that's what you're after!

If you like arty 60s films just buy it. If you love Terence Stamp just buy it. Its worth the price just for Fellini's Toby Dammit - fantastic stuff!
Also, if anyone hasn't already got My Darling Clementine they very much should consider it. Jam-packed release and down to £12.99 - over £10 off the RRP. I paid £20-ish for mine so you'd be getting a bargain! My favourite Arrow release this year.
Great stuff, thanks for posting.

On a side note; I know there's another edition on the way, but, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Special Edition at 9.99 is a steal too.
Wasn't that interested in this at £5+ but at £2.99 plus double points I couldn't really say no - ordered it yesterday, but no dispatch yet. Worth it just to see Fellini and Malle's segments in particular, that cast, the booklet, and the fact it's a good transfer.

Heat.
I dont know the film, but thats an absolute bargain for any Arrow release. They always go for atleast a fiver normally.

I always seem to find something to buy in these sales. They really are the Criterion of the UK. This time I picked up Mona Lisa and The Manchurian Candidate. Absolute bargains at £7.99 each.
velocirapta
Thief LE is the one to get it you can 'cause it has two different prints of the film (a must-have for Michael Mann fans). Same goes for Withnail & I SE which has How To Get Ahead in Advertising on Blu-ray for the first time.

Anyway, what I'd recommend from the sale in particular (new titles to the sale in bold):
3 Women (Robert Altman)
Battle Royale [3 Disc Edition] (Kinji Fukasaku)
Bicycle Thieves (Vittorio De Sica)
Big Trouble in Little China (John Carpenter)
Blow Out (Brian De Palma)
Bound (The Wachowskis)
Branded to Kill (Seiji Suzuki)
Brute Force (Jules Dassin)
Cinema Paradiso (Giuseppe Tornatore)
Day of Anger (Tonino Valerii)
Django, Prepare a Coffin (Ferdinando Baldi)
Dressed to Kill (Brian De Palma)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Philip Kaufman)
King of New York (Abel Ferrera)
Koyaanisqatsi + Powaqqatsi (Godfrey Reggio)
L'Assassino (Elio Petri)
Lady Snowblood 1 & 2 (Toshiya Fujita)
Les Diaboliques (Henri-Georges Clouzot)
Lifeforce (Tobe Hooper)
Network (Sidney Lumet)
Obsession (Brian De Palma)
Rabid Dogs (Mario Bava)
Remo Williams (Guy Hamilton)
Rififi (Jules Dassin)
Rollerball (Norman Jewison)
Runaway Train (Andrei Konchalovsky)
Salvatore Giuliano (Francesco Rosi)
Sisters (Brian De Palma)
Sullivan's Travels (Preston Sturges)
Sweet Smell of Success (Alexander Mackendrick)
The 'Burbs (Joe Dante)
The Car (Elliot Silverstein)
The Conformist (Bernardo Bertolucci)
The Fury (Brian De Palma)
The Killers (Robert Siodmak)
The Killers (Don Siegel)
The Killing + Killer's Kiss (Stanley Kubrick)
The Long Good Friday + Mona Lisa (John Mackenzie + Neil Jordan)
The Long Goodbye (Robert Altman)
The Manchurian Candidate (John Frankenheimer)
The Naked City (Jules Dassin)
The Night of the Hunter (Charles Laughton)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (Tobe Hooper)
The Tin Drum (Volker Schlöndorff)
The Train (John Frankenheimer)
The Visitor (Giulio Paradisi)
Thief (Michael Mann)
Time Bandits (Terry Gilliam)
White of the Eye (Donald Cammell)
Withnail & I (Bruce Robinson)
Zombie Flesh Eaters (Lucio Fulci)

I myself got 3 Women and Sweet Smell of Success this time around, but also have my eye on (again, ones in bold recent to the sale):
Coffy (Jack Hill)
Massacre Gun (Yasuharu Hasebe)
Milano Calibro 9 (Fernando Di Leo)
Retaliation (Yasuharu Hasebe)
The Girl Who Knew Too Much (Mario Bava)
The Happiness of the Katakuris (Takeshi Miike)

Rollerball is a new release so thats a very good price. I watched the film a few months back for first time in about 15 years and was not as good as i remembered.
Seems i mainly remembered the action parts and not the several drag out parts it has
If you like James Caan I'd recommend Thief. Brilliant film by Michael Mann, clearly the film that Heat was spawned from.
Second that; managed to grab the limited ed (with mint slip) from hmv :D
Nice one. Still after Thief LE myself. Which HMV was this?

M/cr, absolutely stunning slip it is too :) hope you find one)

Heat, but you probably should've made one thread for the whole Arrow sale. Worth mentioning that you get 100 reward points (worth £1) when you first sign up, and that you get double reward points on everything during sale periods - but that redeeming said reward points on sale items makes them worth half as much. So yeah, there are some ground rules but plenty of bargains to be had! I bought 3 Women and Sweet Smell of Success as they were at the top of my list, but there are several more I have my eye on. Sale finishes September 13th.

Ichi the killer is basically surreal satire.
The Happiness of the Kutakuris is also a **** take send up of musicals. Lots of references to sound of music & other musicals etc. Not to mention imaginatively combining Zombies in his own unique & surreal way. If you have seen the surreal/ bizarre asian horror movie House you will see similarities.
Audition horror (masterpiece), Gozu (satire), Visitor Q (again satire) and again pure genius. He often seems fearless as a director which is so rare.
He is not a tough nut to crack. Simply a prolific director who often goes for volume of output over consistent quality.
At his best he is a genius. His later films such as13 Assassins fit more easily with western critics and mainstream audience perception of what constitutes good Asian cinema. They feel more comfortable accepting this as good according to their morals and cultural ideals.
But if you grew up reading Manga and watching anime. Love horror and yakuza flicks. Love surreal artistic cinema and have a brain then you will appreciate the genius of Ichi the Killer. Sadly misunderstood by a narrow and culturally naive western audiance.

I understand what Miike's intentions were with those films, but there's no need to insult people en-masse nor put people into categories. I liked Audition, for example, and as I said I found Katakuris pretty funny, but found Ichi to be excessively crass. Why say he is a genius one minute, then imply 13 Assassins isn't as good as his other films? It might just be Miike's personality I don't always get along with - there are plenty of directors he owes a debt to, such as Imamura or Ôshida, whose films are just as daring and tend to translate their ideas better to screen. Miike definitely has some things to say, but more often than not has a roundabout way of exploring them.

And yes, by the way, I did enjoy House/Hausu. And I too enjoy anime, horror, and yakuza films. But Miike is an acquired taste as much as someone like Sion Sono is. Please don't try and set others apart from yourself - we're all clearly film fans here!





​Thanks for your interesting comments and passionate response. ;)
Got myself Network off all your reccomendations the trailer looked good, bought rollerball as I enjoyed the remake so thought the original would be good since it has james caan in it, picked up contamination as it was given good reviews got Nekromantik with my bonus points not a bad price for what it usually is plus I know it aint the special edition packaging

Anyone watch "Lesson In Evil" on Film four the other night, I hear its by the same guy, any good ? (I pvr'd it).
No, it was Takeshi Miike who directed Lesson of Evil - Battle Royale was directed by Kinji Fukasaku. They are quite different filmmakers. Funnily enough though, Arrow have release other films by both directors, and Miike's The Happiness of the Katakuris is in the sale for £8.99 (a bargain seeing as it was only released a couple of months ago).
If you want something more from Fukasaku (Battle Royale), Arrow recently announced a massive box set of his famous Battles Without Honour and Humanity that's coming out in November and during the sale you get double points AND there's an 'early bird' price at the moment ('til September 8th) of £64.99. So if you pay £64.99 now, and you would get 1298 reward points back (worth £12.98) to spend on something else in future. Not bad for 5 yakuza films, a booklet you won't get elsewhere (they're not putting booklets in future editions of the films), and an exclusive epic cut (3h44m) of the first four films that you won't be able to buy in future either. Worth having a look at if you love Battle Royale!
But yes, the 3-disc edition of Battle Royale is the one to buy! I have the steelbook from some years ago (which is now OOP).
I tried watching Happiness of the Katakuris years ago, still got the DVD somewhere. Could never get past the tonsil scene at the beginning.

I used to have 2 copies of the Tartan DVD (sold one copy) and when Arrow announced they were releasing it on Blu-ray I made myself watch it, to see if I wanted to upgrade it. Whilst I found it funny in places, it's mostly just a musical and I hate musicals. I'm not a huge fan of Miike's earlier work and I reckon his newer films are much better - 13 Assassins, the Hara-Kiri remake, and I like the look of Yakuza Apocalypse. I could never get through Ichi the Killer, a film that I had owned since my mid-teens, so sold my copy on eBay some time ago. He's a tough nut to crack. Lesson of Evil looks interesting though, I reckon I could have the patience for it.

Worth mentioning you get double points back too, so 158 points when you buy this (worth £1.58 if you spend them outside of the sale). Also, you get 100 points (worth £1) when you sign up to the site!
Other new titles in the sale that I'd recommend: The Manchurian Candidate, Withnail & I
So that's why I only had to pay £6.50 :)
I dunno if you already have them or not, but I'd also recommend Battle Royale (3 Disc Edition), Bicycle Thieves, Big Trouble in Little China, Blow Out, Bound, Branded to Kill, Brute Force, Cinema Paradiso, Django Prepare a Coffin, Dressed to Kill, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, King of New York, Koyaanisqatsi+Powaqqatsi, L'Assassino, Lady Snowblood 1&2, Les Diaboliques, Obsession, Remo Williams, Rififi, Runaway Train, Salvatore Giuliano, Sisters, Sullivan's Travels, The 'Burbs, The Car, The Conformist, The Fury, The Killers (1946), The Killers (1964), The Long Goodbye, The Naked City, The Night of the Hunter, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Tin Drum, The Visitor, Time Bandits, White of the Eye, and Zombie Flesh Eaters
Have already got Invasion of the Bodysnatchers and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Its good to know that there are companies like Arrow, Eureka Entertainment (Masters of Cinema) and Network Distributing who invest time and effort in restoring and re-releasing titles, hence why they aren't as cheap as mainstream films.

Yes, and worth mentioning Network currently have a sale on too...and Eureka just had one over the weekend. Pretty much every release by these labels is worth owning if you're interested in cinema! Don't forget BFI, Artificial Eye/Curzon, StudioCanal (though their prices can be extortionate) and some other smaller labels have released some quality titles too (Second Sight, Argent/Nouveux, Soda Pictures, Axiom, Mr Bongo etc) - though those last ones generally aren't involved in restoration themselves.

Shame about the no double points thing...I suspect they started to realise people would buy loads of stuff in the sales, getting double points on everything, then use them against pre-orders of limited edition items - I admit, I was hoping to get a bunch of stuff so I could use to the points against a pre-order of the upcoming Yoshida box set, but guess I'll have to pay full-whack now if I really want it.
They had to initiate double points issued on sale as a way of getting the correct value off a sale item with points (not sure on the maths but on sale items it took 'half the value' so hence double points.

I love an Arrow Videos sale, picked up Manchurian Candidate, The Killing and Naked City for now. The above suggestions (what I have seen) are very good. The Burbs for that price totally worth it too.

Edit: Double points are gone so they must've fixed the problem another way. I did slightly misuse the double points on non-sale items once

Double points back on (they were showing up as single points until now)
Great prices on their more recent titles. I had a short list and managed to tick a couple off: The Killers ('46) and The Naked City. Might get a couple of others before the weekend's up. Some of the older titles might be cheaper elsewhere, but you also get bonus points, remember!
Makes me almost sad that I own a good most of them already. I want people to be able to share the joy of the Burbs steelbook and such though.

Some good films in there. Love Theatre of Blood

Father Dougal: ‘Oh, come on Ted, they’ve got a spider-baby!’

Father Ted: ‘A what?’

Father Dougal: ‘A spider-baby, you know it’s kind of a Freak Show thing, you know, the body of a spider, but it’s actually a baby?’

Father Ted: ‘How is it a baby, does it a have a nappy on or something?

Father Dougal: ‘No.’

Father Ted: ‘Well, does it have the head of a baby?’

Father Dougal: ‘Aehm, no.’

Father Ted: ‘Well, if it looks like a spider, and it doesn’t actually gurgle or anything, how do you know it’s actually a baby?’

Father Dougal: ‘They keep it in a pram.’

Father Ted: ‘Are you absolutely sure about this? You’re not confusing this with a dream you had or anything?’

Father Dougal: ‘No, honestly, I saw it on the news, honestly, oh, wait now, actually, now that you say it, it was a dream.’

Great offer obviously - a little bit peeved as some of these titles were pretty recent releases that I paid a fair few quid more for (Salvatore Giuliano, Brute Force, Branded To Kill, The Burbs), but there are 3 in there I wanted so I grabbed them (L'Assassino, Bound, Rififi with new artwork).

Best deals in there that I would personally recommend (the others are fairly often in offers or will be even cheaper in future, though many of them are of course excellent films): Big Trouble in Little China, Blind Woman's Curse, Bound, Branded To Kill, Brute Force, Cinema Paradiso, L'Assassino, Salvatore Giuliano, The 'Burbs, White of the Eye

Worth mentioning there are steelbook editions available of those last two but they are £9.99 each (still, worth it if you collect them).

Many of the older titles in this bundle offer are in Amazon's current 3 for £17 blu-ray offer, and also Zavvi's 2 for £12 blu-ray offer - so actually cheaper elsewhere, hence why I listed the best bargains

Some other steelbooks and special editions are on sale on the Arrow Store too - I mentioned a couple just above - but not in the bundle offer. Still they're only £9.99, and I'd recommend the Koyaanisqatsi+Powaqqatsi set in particular as it's never been that cheap before and only came out earlier this year (I paid almost £16 for it).

One last thing - if you get anything separate from the bundle offer you get bonus points. It should be 10 points per pound (so spending £10 gives you 100 points, and 100 points is worth £1), which is effectively 10% back...though obviously you can only spend it on your next order. But still a decent deal. During the sale you effectively get double points - what you actually get is 10 pounds per pound on the RRP, but the sale price is 50% off the RRP so you get the full amount of points at half the price. For example if you get the 3 for £20 bundle you will get 200 points back, which is worth £2!

Also those who are new to Arrow Store get 100 points (£1) just for joining :)


What are Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi like?

Basically two of the best experimental films of all time. They're kinda like documentary without any dialogue, with a lot of incredible footage of day-to-day events and time-lapse photography of weather, cities etc. Both are scored by Philip Glass, one of the most renowned minimalist composers (if not the most renowned - you may recognise his music from films like The Truman Show, Kundun, The Thin Blue Line or many other films). Godfrey Reggio (the director of both films) did direct a third film but I've heard it's not so good in comparison to these two - that said, he released a new film this year called Visitors which is beautiful (though more challenging a watch than either of the first two 'Qatsi' films).

The guy who was cinematographer both films (Ron Fricke) later directed two of his own films which are inexplicably more popular amongst general audiences, maybe because they're more recent - you may have heard of them...the first one was called Baraka, and the more recent one called Samsara. But for my money, Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi are the original and best.

There are some clips on YouTube - try and look for HD ones, generally of the remastered Criterion release. The Arrow Academy release is basically the same transfer, and many of the same extras - the packaging is really nice (two separate digipacks and a booklet all inside a slipbox), and you don't get the reportedly 'crap' third film (Naqoyqatsi).

Thanks, yes have heard of Baraka and Samsara but not seen them, they sound like just a more modern version. Great price for this boxeset, might give them a go. Although just spent £20 on The Burbs, Blowout and Runaway train!

Great choices - I own all three! Not watched Runaway Train yet but couldn't say no.

As for Koyaanisqatsi/Powaqqatsi, I paid the same amount (£9.99) for the double pack of Samsara/Baraka, so the former is a bargain in comparison as they're honestly better films than the latter (plus there's a half an hour short film called Anima Mundi thrown in, amongst several other extras). Anyway, the deal is on 'til January 5th (I think) so you've got about 4 weeks to decide whether to go for it or not.

Ah brilliant, I've got another pay day to come then! Bought afew arrow releases lately so really should hold off for a bit now and watch some. Did watch Night of the Comet and Sisters recently, really enjoyed both.

Nice, I'm not sure about either myself (80's B-movies are hit and miss for me) though I may check out Sisters one day (I do like De Palma and have most of the Arrow releases of his films...in fact, blu-ray releases of most of his films in general)!

Sisters was better than I thought it would be. Pretty much every Hitchcock film has been borrowed from! But obviously in De Palma's style. Story line is okay but everything is done really well, camera shots, brilliant spilt screen use, the score (from Psycho composer) and a good performance from the cast. Does have one silly hole though in the plot. I preferred it to both Obsession and The Fury which I watched not long ago.

Night of the comet is very silly but just has something about it!

Obsession and The Fury are the two I haven't watched yet! Will watch them then and maybe get Sisters at some point. Would get another bundle deal but would have to find 2 more I want (maybe Big Trouble In Little China...but the rest I'd want I already have)

As for Koyaanisqatsi/Powaqqatsi, I paid the same amount (£9.99) for the double pack of Samsara/Baraka, so the former is a bargain in comparison as they're honestly better films than the latter (plus there's a half an hour short film called Anima Mundi thrown in, amongst several other extras). Anyway, the deal is on 'til January 5th (I think) so you've got about 4 weeks to decide whether to go for it or not.

Can't see anybody wanting to buy it later on with my name on it...

:)

All sold out now anyway.

The smart investor would have asked for Richard E. Grant or Paul McGann's name to be on the box.

I've asked for Richard Griffiths...


...oh wait

Don't see this having much resale value (_;)

In the last 25 minutes not one of the three remaining designs has sold.

Perhaps it has a very limited first sale market too.

You can order this from other places and save a tenner, it just won't be personalised. Personally, I'm just gonna wait for a price-drop on the regular set and pick that up. No way am I spending more than £20 on it though!

Wise. I did post the link to the cheapest place to get the non-personalised version, but it was twice removed by mods. The site with the cheapest price being banned by HUKD (I must be out of the loop as to why).

I think I saw it cheapest on Zavvi for £38.99 or Amazon for £39.63.

I like that Arrow Video are taking risks with some of their sets, but seriously, is there even any demand for a deluxe edition of Withnail & I?

I remember getting the steelbook blu-ray that Studio Canal put out for less than £5 some months back, no amount of exclusive extras or better transferring is going to convince me to double dip either.

I specifically didn't get the StudioCanal disc because it's reportedly a terrible transfer - so not even worth a fiver in my opinion. Arrow have access to the master prints via HandMade Films, and if anyone else saw their treatment with Time Bandits they'll know this will be the definitive release of this film. I think it's a case of too many fans getting hyped for the release and Arrow misjudging it as being in high demand and going for something too deluxe. As I said, I'd pay £20 max for this film - it's indeed a great British film, but not worth the same price I just paid for 18 of Werner Herzog's films/shorts remastered (for example), or 6 of Jim Jarmusch's.

Yep, I put down the Z_ _ _ _ price. Twice. Deleted both times. Not that it matters.
