Criterion Collection May 2021 Movie Sale

The Criterion Collection keep pumping out award-winning films on Blu-ray and it’s having a negative impact on our bank accounts. Fast Times at Ridgemont High was one of our favorite films from the 1980s as it perfectly captured our high school experience (some more than others) and it always needed some form of restoration.

Merrily We Go to Hell is a rather harsh and unpleasant look at marriage that might not be the best film to watch with your spouse if the past 14 months of COVID-19 lockdowns were not kind to your marriage. It’s a hard hitting film that was way ahead of its time.
