Latest DVDs

here's my list of my latest additions:

Year of the Dragon (Cimino and Micky Rourke (before the plastic surgery)- need I say more?

Bad Day at Black Rock - the  John Sturges classic

The Nest - Little seen but really terrific and intense action thriller by Florent Siri, the director of Hostage  Video available on Lion's Gate video

So to recap you bought some DVD's but you haven't 'watched them today' because they are still in the post. What's the matter with you? There are rules to this thread. DVD's bought but in the post don't count. Are you mental? As an aside why do people insist on telling people what they've got on order, from where and for how much. And how clever they are for getting it a quid/dollar cheaper than anywhere else. Is this what we've become. Please there must be more to it than this.
Last DVDs I bought were Hostage, Jaws 30th Aniversary, and Casnio Aniversary Edition (but that is still backordered at so it still didn't ship yet). Ordered them from Should have Hostage and Jaws tomorrow or Friday.
The last DVD I bought was Rebel Without A Cause: 2 disc special edition, The last dvd I watched The Day The Earth Stood Still, Excellent film.

Sin City

Appleseed (Metal Tin with Action Figure)
AvP. Yes I know don't start. Got it for £8 at MVC as part of their buy one get 2nd half price promo. I thought I couldn't keep kicking this film without actually seeing it any more. Verdict? As expectation was so low, I thought it was extremely beige but not worth the drubbing or indeed the attention it received.

I got Clockwork Orange, 2001, and Gangs of New York.

At future shop here in canada. Best Buy owns them. Best Buy's around here had some sort of squishy ball I think, so I went with the tin instead.

The front of the tin has a giant red incredibles logo on it.

The Incredibles is the best release of the year so and audio are top notch and the extras are a lot of fun with plenty of easter eggs to be found...and that's on top of what a great movie it is to begin with.

Excellent movie. The new special edition is pretty good too. Angela Landsbury totally freaked me out. Especially after having her be the host to my childhood movie
Last week I watched my recently received Oldboy and Zatoichi DVDs. Oldboy was fantastic, a great aural experience and finally a thriller with a twist I didn't see coming a mile away (I hate how predictable recent Hollywood thrillers are).

Re-watching (had originally seen in theatres) this excellent with a top-notch DTS5.1 track was truly awesome. Kitano = God.

Rented Unforgiven. (I'm running out of verbsTired) Masterly acted, excellent film. WAY better than the highly overrated Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby.
Bought: Bambi: SE

Watched: Mulan 2
Earlier today I picked up Bambi: Platinum Edition.
I'm currently waiting for UK R2 Oldboy SE and UK R2 Zatoichi SE to arrive in the mail.

Over the weekend I saw JSA - a simply excellent Korean flick.

I just bought the original Manchurian Candidate.
Se7en platinum edition.  Too bad I'm grounded for two weeks, so I can't watch it.Sad
Quote: I still have to check out Collateral. I've had it sitting around for since it came out. I hope its good.

It's top notch.
I bought Heat SE today and might pick up Get Shorty SE tomorrow, especially since it has a free ticket to go see Be Cool.

The last DVD that I bought was Raging Bull 2 disc SE which is an awesome movie and it has great extras. Today I watched Resident Evil Apocalypse which wasn't as bad as people make it sound. It had more action and most importantly, it had more Milla. Wink
