You were a Film Struck subscriber, right? Did you also join The Criterion Channel? I opted for that instead of picking up a lot of their individual titles for purchase. 

 

I was FilmStruck, but I have not joined the Criterion Channel.  We have Youtube TV now, which is quite expensive, but using that I can DVR as many movies off of TCM as I want, and I get  my classic film appetite sated that way.  I bought these three blu-rays on an impulse, really.  To make room for Youtube TV we cancelled most streaming services.  Now we just have Prime and that.

I don't think you understand what OCD is if you are asking that question in this context

So I was right then.  Thank you for confirming.

 

This was a deeply gratifying exchange for me, confirming suspicions i had for years.

 

Thank you!

That time when Holko's external DVD drive which he got as a freebie with his laptop in 2015 started breaking down, prompting him to finally make the upgrade to bluray after years of hesitation and unsurity, then of course deciding to build up a core library of classics (plus others if you like) he didn't yet own - 2019, colorised

No, I don't think it will.  It lacks staying power, to me.  The first act or so is top notch, but it begins to have a fan film flavor after that.  A bit too hyper and self-aware.

 

I agree

Can something that came out a few years ago really be a classic?

 

Instant classic status can occur, but I would never have attributed such renown to the new Star Wars movies. That's not to say they won't achieve it in years to come, in the eyes of their generation of fans, but I doubt it.

 

Recently, I'd label Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse as an instant classic, at least as far as animation goes. With some movies you can just tell. Funny, another cartoon film, The Iron Giant, I knew that was destined to be a classic as soon as I'd saw it.

Its a very forward thinking piece of cinema!

 

So you’re saying in the future Australians will wage wars over water and smash hot rods into each other in desert wastelands?

 

Interesting...
