Every so often they have at Barnes and Noble a 50% off Criterion sale. I get paid tomorrow and I made this list a while back. Its still relevant and subject to change. I’ve bought at least two-three films per sale, with my biggest haul ever being 6 or 7 (I can’t remember) one lovely sale a couple years back when I was flush with cash. Possible scores based off of my Criticker profile out of 100 total points, as are my ratings.
