She was the only GC employee who seemed to answer questions, help with queue problems, field complaints, etc., and did so usually within a day or two at most.

Since communication from Greencine these days seems rarer than a 20carat blue diamond, I'm guessing the answer is...No. :(

I'm not the barometer to use as far as service.As I don't recall a problem free two week period since i first joined last year.

just curious, did anybody get titles shipped to them Monday? Did you receive them? A title released to me Friday did not show as "shipped" until Monday, and both that and another title shipped Monday have not arrived. Every week now, seems something goes wrong.

Are we the only three (or four) subscribers left?

ROFL! just may be... Actually, there must be quite a few more, otherwise why aren't we getting shipments of our non-Green colored queue items?

But I think a lot of subscribers here probably aren't even aware that GC has a "Discussion Board."

Oh btw, last week I moved all my Blue requests to the top of my queue exclusively...and the last two items I've been sent have been Blue ones!

I had Richard III (1955) ship on Monday and I got it right on schedule.

After watching House of Cards on Netflix, I felt the need to see the play.

Not to mention the parking lot discovery.

Just a heads up no mail on Monday.

As for me I am still all over the place queue wise in regards to what is actually sent out.

Two suggestions: have you ever seen Ian McKellen's 1995 Richard III, transferred to 1930s Britain? Not entirely successful, but fascinating in a way, and with very different emphasis on some of the lines from Olivier's. And I found Al Pacino's 1996 deconstruction in Looking for Richard to be an important followup after comparing Olivier and McKellen.

I'm still not getting a damn thing, and I've got lots of blues and yellows. Starting to get discouraged.

Those Richards may be where I go next. I forgot about the Al Pacino movie, thanks for the suggestion!

I know some blue and yellow movies are shipping, but obviously it's not many and not often.

Bluffing...if you're not getting even your Greens shipped to you, then something is seriously wrong with your account.

Shiftless: Yes I had a title shipped on Monday that arrived in the expected time. They have been doing well with shipping for me after that end of year problem.

Maybe we lost weezy, if so too bad. Too bad we lost underdog too.


Blumphf: I personally believe a lot of it is because of inventory problems. Sometimes discs get lost in the mail but I don't think they ever update their inventory. I think many non-green titles are no longer had by Greencine. I am very pleased to hear of blue titles shipping for you.

Wish I could say the same thing.Based on where i am under the current billing cycle, roughly 1/3 of it (and 7 of 21 days) has been spent with nothing under at home or quick returned. This is not including times like now with Monday holiday meaning Friday quick returns wouldn't go out until Tuesday.

I am also still seeing every shipment greens at the top of the queue being skipped for lower greens.Which matches what everyone else is saying of inventory not being updated.As it happens too frequently for it to be "it gets shipped out to someone else that day."

"Looking For Richard" was a wonderful suggestion, thanks!

I had a very nice Richard the Third fest, starting with Laurence Olivier's version, then going to Ian McKellen's, Al Pacino's and finally the silent. Watching the others prepared me to see the silent version, which doesn't have many title cards.

I agree, the 1912 James Keane Richard III with Frederick Warde was a very interesting followup to those others. I also recommend the two Grigori Kozintsev productions in Russian, of Hamlet (1964) and King Lear (1969). (GC's Hamlet is green, but they don't have a copy of the Lear.) Have you ever seen "Chimes at Midnight"? This is Orson Welles's construction of Falstaff as a character as he appears in the different plays. (This is now shown as orange here.)

And coming off Pacino's musings on how to play Richard, a DVD you really ought to seek out is Peter Brook's 1953 TV production of King Lear with Welles,
http://www.amazon.com/King-Lear-Omnibus-Historic-Broadcast/dp/B002SF9YUC/, or
http://dvd.netflix.com/Movie/King-Lear/70128797.
You have to find this particular "Archive of American Television Presents: The Historic Omnibus Production" copy, because it's the extras on this specific disc that are important, and particularly the deconstruction of how Hamlet can be played in entirely different ways, using the identical dialog, but giving Hamlet a fierce determination rather than the way we're used to seeing him. The main film and three additional extras are all interesting enough, but this Hamlet is truly eye-opening. Find a copy.

Unfortunately, "Chimes at Midnight" has been in my queue forever. Time for somebody to return it! Thanks for the suggestions. I've been sprinkling some of the plays into my queue. The good thing about Shakespeare plays on Greencine? Lots of green bars.

Have you seen the Canadian TV series Slings and Arrows? That should be on your "Shakespeare on Greencine" list for sure. It's a great and hilarious TV series that's all about the trials and tribulations of putting on a Shakespeare festival.
