Thank you for the heads-up. This is a buy for me at that price.
Fuck no. Not for this title. Horrible film. I would pay $50 for some films, like an ultimate edition of The Shining, but not for this piece of crap.
Popcorn is a little ... yeah (ha, ha), corny. But it's not exactly horrible.
Ugh! Popcorn is expensive, and in this case I really wish it wasn't. But... I've been waiting on this one for so long now, that I went ahead and pre-ordered it regardless.
They don't want you to buy from them again. They want you to buy a $50 Blu Ray.
So much anger for a film you don't like it....or do you actually like it and are pissed at the price?
I solved this puzzle. Boom bring on another one.
I love the work Don does but these limited editions are just crazy. I kind of get it for Argenta but doing it for Popcorn is nuts!
I never paid obscene scalper prices to get a brand new copy of the long OOP, still pricey Elite DVD, so I guess that'll be my justification for paying a little less now for a fully restored Blu-Ray. I wish they could've included a soundtrack CD or something to further justify that pricetag, though.
I'm not justifying the price at all. But this is what I was saying about the Vestron titles. They start out around $30 (pre order) and are now on average for about $24 each. Anyway, those titles are not limited(as far as I know) and some of those titles hold imo less of a "want". So the Popcorn price for a limited steelbook while very high isn't so bad when you think about it.
Bottom line, people here(including myself) on this very forum buy films at ridiculous prices all the time. I for one don't mind every once in a while, but will only do it for a limited edition. I don't buy because to say I own a rare release, I buy it because I don't want to miss out. Using again the Vestron titles as an example, I only own 2 so far. Got them only on sale.(and you know they will go lower at some point) Would never pay a high price for them, unless I hear they are going to be oop.
Been waiting for like 4 years when they announced that Popcorn "Fan Edition" was coming out.
It never materialized and it got picked up by Synapse. While 3000 units may last a long time, I'm not missing out. Plus, that price is not coming down on these steelbooks imo. So it's now, later, or never. Basically it's $45.95 now, $45.95 later, or $0. Will there be a movie only edition?, I'm sure but I'm not waiting another year to save $20.
Baggio isn't it different in the case with Synapse? You can't get the Synapse steel book at a discount through Amazon, correct? If you want this, you are paying Don $46.
I get your point though. I have paid a pretty penny for some lasers back in the day. Support the niche!
No, I really hate the film. It's terrible. I could have bought the now OOP Elite DVD of Popcorn several times years ago for under $5, but I refuse to pollute the rest of my collection... The price the are asking is simply the icing on the cake.
Just buy it already. Your collection is already polluted. This will add class.
Exactly. I don't mind supporting direct to the company. Hopefully it will give them incentive to release more films.
Yeah..I guess it can't pollute anything if I file it with my porn collection!
It will give them incentive to release more films, but in overpriced steelbooks.
You're a good guy Baggio.
That's amusing, because Kino and Criterion are making a bloody fucking fortune off me.
Because... They still release DVD's.
Hell, I'll probably buy that Shout! Factory Collector's Edition of The Fog just for the Jamie Lee Curtis interview. Not a dime of that's going into Synapse's pocket. Whistle. File nails. Whistle.
Don't hold your breath. Kino and Criterion (and Shout) are still trying to go broad with their approach, I don't get the feeling that is what Synapse's ultra-boutique approach is catering to.
I also think all companies are trying to figure out the best way to handle cost/pricing/moving units in a streaming world. Hence all the different approaches.
Hell as someone who pre-ordered the Popcorn steelbook I don't even think those beloved "classics" deserve such the expensive treatment. It's real shitty of Synapse to take advantage of collectors like that.
Sigh I really want to cancel my pre-order. But I love Popcorn so much...
I don't believe for one single moment that Harry Warden doesn't love it. Nope. Why come across as so pissy for a product you were never going to buy? You can't fool a fool my scummy fiend.
I love Synapse and if Popcorn was my Jam I'd be all about a Steelbook. Hell, I had no issue with the Argento ones. And I'd pay for a Massacre at Central High Steelbook. But... Popcorn is fine, but for me it "retail edition" fine.
