During the spring sale I still had to get over 200 once VAT was removed to trigger the free shipping. So it might not be a glitch but a feature.

The issue wasn't the free shipping threshold. It's that they wouldn't ship at all to the US unless you hit £200. At £199.98 after VAT deduction, the site said they could not ship some items to my address and I should remove them from my cart. Over £200, it had no problem.

Oh I see. Yeah that's definitely a glitch. Hopefully they'll get it sorted soon.

Give it some time (maybe tomorrow even) but they'll likely come back in stock.

Seems like they're calling the 50% off a discount which doesn't allow you to redeem your points.

you're joking. they were literally in my cart and then I had that shipping issue

they can't be serious. $71 on Amazon is a massive difference

EDIT: they have addressed this on Twitter. will be watching for more info like a hawk. I put my alerts on in order to stay on top of it. here is the tweet thread where they address it.

Now I'm hoping Vol 3 doesn't hit low stock until the next sale.

I don’t often find myself agreeing with your taste in cinema, but I’ll third a recommendation for Effect of Gamma Rays…, which was unexpectedly good. The Reckoning, also, is really worthwhile.

Though case in point, I quite liked Psyche 59.
Immaculate Conception is another one that’s worth a look, especially if you’ve enjoyed Dehlavi’s other films. Though he’s made far better, it perhaps somewhat gets away with it’s ‘white westerner in an exotic land’ framework, not least for a chance to see Melissa Leo in a lead role just prior to Homicide, Life on the Street.

Take a Girl Like You

PRETTY GOOD
National Health
Psyche 59
Pumpkin Eater
St. Valentine
Town on Trial

OKAY
Joe Egg
Fortune
Otley
Reckoning

NOT MY THING
Immaculate Conception
Severed Head
Ship of Fools
Virgin Soldiers

FWIW, I thought Town on Trial was a lot of fun, too. Might get that at the next sale.

It might be worth noting that Effect of Gamma Rays On Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds is also one of the 20th Century Fox titles Indicator has released. Who knows if that might ever get reissued through Disney-owned-Fox.

as promised, Columbia Noir #1 and #2 have returned

expected ship date November. paid a pretty £25 for priority shipping since it was only £2 more than the standard. still hurt the wallet!

After much deliberation, I got the second William Castle set, The Effect of Gamma Rays..., and Town on Trial. I was going to buy The Reckoning, but it sold out yesterday. Time to hunker down until Black Friday!

Titles added to Low Stock per their Twitter account:
THE FU MANCHU CYCLE
LIGHT SLEEPER
TWENTIETH CENTURY
Great to see Twentieth Century sell so fast. It hasn't been out that long.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned but Gardens of Stone is now showing on their OOP page.

If anybody is organizing another group-buy, let me know. I would start one myself, but I only want one title that's £8 without VAT, a long way off from the £200 needed.
Turns out, there's £50.81 worth of discs (after VAT is removed) that I'd be up for ordering. I'd be up for starting another U.S. group-buy under the same terms (with items picked up in-person or buyers also paying for U.S. media mail shipping).

I'll join a potential group-buy as there's only a few items I'm interested in.

who even in the US has the rights to Light Sleeper? becuase I'm so close to saying fuck it and just getting the Indicator release. I've been stockpiling Region B releases without having a region free player which is in the cards for Christmas anyways.

Well, I put in an order for about £270 which might have been a tad excessive thinking about it. Got most of the 50% I didn't have, but didn't get Man in the Moon Marigolds (which for some reason has never appealed to me). I'm tempted to go back and put another order in (I'd meant to get The System as well - mainly for the short film) but think that might be going a bit too far...

Theatrically, it was New Line, and I'm not quite sure as to how it ended up with Lionsgate on video.

It could be because of Carolco, but I assume, like Reservoir Dogs, which was theatrically distributed by Miramax, Light Sleeper is with Lionsgate via Live Entertainment.
