For those interested, iTunes has select Criterion digital HD films on sale for $4.99 each. These titles are not MA (Movies Anywhere) compatible. Lowest prices posted for a lot of them. This deal also beats the previous frontpage deal from some titles.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I imagine if you buy it on iTunes, if/when it ever comes out as 4K, you will get it for "free".

It depends on The Criterion Collection...

Hurry up, I think they are changing prices. The Gold Rush is back to 14.99 now.
I got City Lights, The Gold Rush, and Modern Times, which are my favorites. Cheers for the heads up!

Anyone else just buy all the Kurosawas last week for 7.99 each? Sigh.

I bought Home Alone last November for $8, but at least it was in UHD. "I can't imagine that film going any lower," I said. Went on sale this past month for $5. Yet Christmas Vacation continues to hold solid at $10...for just HD. There is little rhyme or reason to these prices, but I refuse to pay more than $5 any longer, unless we're talking Disney. Then we're all over a barrel.

It's all good bro. I picked some titles up back then too and those have dropped since. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose. It's all part of SD. Thanks for sharing.

Is stalker worth owning? My concern with these movies is they are those watch once type of films.

Amazing sale, very jelly. Wish this was offered from VUDU.
Vudu doesn't have a lot of these, especially the Chaplin, Kurosawa when I checked yesterday. Criterion might have an arrangement with Apple for a lot of these. Good news is that Apple TV is being included in most smart devices and TVs going forward. They have apps on the video game systems as well. Plus they will upgrade you to 4k when these get upgraded.

Wow I'd be all over this if they transferred to MA.

Tampopo is a delightful, weird and at times delightfully weird movie. A no hesitation buy for me despite not being MA compatible

HOLY SMOKES, this is a sure-fire recipe for my going broke.
(Downside - most of these don't have the fancy-ass Criterion extras included on iTunes. Flipside : FIVE BUCKS.)

Some great movies on here but iTunes is a no-go for me. Sadness.

Just in case anyone is interested, the entire Three Colors Trilogy is on sale. Great deal, thanks for the heads up!

Would also easily recommend Tampopo for $5. Took a couple of watches for me, but it's a very unique and entertaining film.

Well… that's true for most movies. If Soviet era sci-fi is your thing then you'll probably like Stalker, it's one of the ones I'm considering. Solaris is another classic of that scene. $5 isn't horrible for a rental but if you watch it a few times over the years then you ended up with a bargain, right? And theoretically you may build up a large enough collection that you can kick the streamers to the curb and only pay for when something you really want to see is on. At least that's what I tell myself.

About 4K editions of these, that's up to Criterion but so far they haven't seemed very interested in UHD. Possibly because a lot of their catalog are older films and the source material may not be able to benefit from the added resolution.

Amazon is matching some of these. I was close to biting the other day when everything from criterion was $8, but I just snagged Johimbo for 5
