    i used to have so many issues with my fire stick on a bunch of different apps, particularly when it was trying to stream higher quality programs. no issues with the standard firetv with which i replaced it, though. i think it has to do with the processor (as the fire stick is basically a glorified flash drive with an HDMI output).

    I don't think it's an issue with the firestick, because finally last night, it started working fine. Today, back to buffering.

    I have the Fire console and it's been working fine for the most part. I noticed some skipping but nothing major. It's off to a better start than Filmstruck was for me. It had some major audio issues for what seemed like months.

    Someone created a web app that lists every film currently on the Channel. Whoa.

    so...how's everyone enjoying the service so far? I (finally) got around to using it pretty extensively yesterday, and it'll be a while before I get to really dig in again, but I fully enjoyed it. Can't wait to watch all the Kurosawa, Bergman, and Ozu films I haven't seen!

    ^ I love the closet videos. I've discovered so many films, and directors/actors, thanks to those videos.

    also recently just saw it for the first time...one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. way ahead of it's time, it felt too.

    watched it a second time shortly after the first time.

    I found Ebert's review helpful.

    Is there a MSRP cut-off where the Barnes & Noble sale no longer applies? It seems silly to drop $160+ on the Godzilla Showa-Era box set at the end of October if I can wait two weeks and save at least $40.

    The B&N sale is going on now until December 1st. I got the Godzilla: Showa-Era collection for $127 after tax. Also, picked up Stalker. Hoping to get some releases on Blu-ray that I already have on DVD including Haxan and Carnival of Souls.

    enjoy the sale everyone. it's been a rough year and I had to sell my entire Criterion collection and probably can't pick up anything this month, as tempted as I am. I am enjoying the hell out of the Criterion Channel though.

    Awesome. I just ordered the Criterion version of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me myself. Very excited and plan to get Blue Velvet at some point soon as well.
