IN A BETTER WORLD. Won Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars and Golden Globes; and it won the audience award for best film at the Rome Film Festival. Definitely my favorite film of the last few years, possibly the last decade. Absolutely breathtaking in all aspects!



Scream 4 - An awesome 4th installment in the Scream series. All of the usual suspects (except the dead ones), with a few new youngins who did an awesome job - most notably Hayden Panettiere & Emma Roberts.

I ordered a 2-dvd set from Amazon's Canadian site of the "La Linea" cartoon shorts.  It was delivered to my apartment complex's leasing office yesterday and I will pick it up today when I drop off my rent.

In case you're not familiar with "La Linea", here's one of the cartoons on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VWcqILJam4

As the uploader's comment states, it used to be shown on the children's TV show "The Great Space Coaster" in the U.S.  Funny that I don't remember "La Linea" from that show, but I do remember Gary Gnu.  "No gnews is good gnews with Gary Gnu!"
Jumping The Broom

A film that some might mistake as a typical Tyler Perry film. Similar insofar as its ensemble cast, and an all-star one at that; however different in that this cast really comes through in the acting department. And a great script reinforces the great cast. I particularly enjoyed performances by Paula Patton and Angela Bassett. Both of them were incredible - and beautiful for that matter. How old is Angela Bassett again? She looks good!



Winter in Wartime. Based on a novel by the same title, the film  follows the story of a Dutch boy in wartime Europe who stumbles upon and decides to help a stranded British pilot. I thought it was a cool perspective on the WWII drama. The film won a bunch of awards at multiple festivals.

Tales From The Golden Age

The film received Un Certain Regard at Cannes, which is a big deal if you're not familiar. Really incredible stuff. It's a comedy that captures life during the Ceausescu regime in Romania. I have to say - with no prior knowledge of the country before watching, I was really impressed and intrigued. It was a tough time, but even in tough times people always seem to find room for humor. Check it out and you'll see what I mean. Great film!  


Of Gods and Men

A true story following the kidnapping and murder of 7 trappist monks during the 1996 Algerian Civil War. Film won the Grand Prix award at Cannes. It is beautifully shot and beautifully acted. The two leads, Michael Lonsdale and Lambert Wilson, are incredible in their roles. It is hard not to fall in love with the both of them. And moreover, the film shines a beautiful light on Islam and Christianity coexisting in harmony. Great film - one of the best I have seen in 2011!

 

Beastly, which If you haven't seen is a modern day retelling of Beauty and The Beast. I thought they did an excellent job adapting the film from the Alex Flinn book (which I also enjoyed). Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens have great chemistry on screen together. And the supporting roles are spectacular - Neil Patrick Harris (so funny in this role) and Mary-Kate Olsen are my two favs. Overall a very cool retelling of the original. Very entertaining film. Highly recommend!



Boyz N The Hood. Just released on Blu-ray.

"Either they don't know, don't show, or don't care about what's going on in the hood."



Burke and Hare

Big fan of Simon Pegg, so I was pretty amped to see this one. I heard about it back in 2010 when it received a UK theatrical release. From what I understand, it's getting a US theatrical release in the near future. Currently it's getting a pre-theatrical release on SundanceNOW - a newer thing they seem to be doing quite a bit now. You can stream it there. Otherwise, maybe wait till it hits theaters.

The story is hilarious - a black comedy based loosely on the real Burke & Hare murders in Scotland in 1820s. I thought Pegg was perfect for his role, as was Andy Serkis. Also has an all-star cast supporting cast in Isla Fisher, Tim Curry and Tom Wilkinson.  



"I had confidence in a fart once, then I shat all over myself" - William Burke (Simon Pegg)
The Green Hornet

Really enjoyed Green Hornet. I'm a big Seth Rogen fan, so I naturally enjoyed his performance. Christoph Waltz was also great; after watching him in Inglorious Basterds, I am convinced that he is the perfect villain. The one who really impressed me is Jay Chou, who plays Kato. He was hilarious! He and Seth Rogen made such a great  comedic team.





The Mechanic

Jason Statham has said that The Mechanic is more grown up than his other work. I thought exactly that when I was watching the film. And I thought he played the role of Arthur Bishop perfectly. Likewise, I thought Ben Foster played the role of Steve very well. And the action - amazing stuff! I can't even imagine the amount of work and money that went into stunts and special effects.  Great film!



Another Year

The more I watch Mike Leigh's films, the more I love his work. He is an absolute genius behind the camera. The first film I saw of his was Happy-Go-Lucky, another comedy, which I thought was brilliant. This film is a little more subtle in its brand of humor, but I thought that's what made it so great. Leigh has a way of making an otherwise mundane situation seem very interesting (if that makes sense). The character interaction is so interesting to watch. And further, each character has great depth. The viewer is able to infer a great deal about each character without explicitly being told his or her history. It's no wonder Leigh's script got an oscar nod (nomination).

Awesome film! I highly recommend. Just released on DVD in the US. Not sure about UK, though I imagine it's already out over there, as Leigh is a brit.    



Hawthorne Season 2. Jada Pinkett Smith plays Christine Hawthorne, chief nursing officer at Trinity Hospital in Richmond, VA. Hawthorne essentially runs the ER, so most of the department's problems, big or small, fall under the scope of her radar. Her personality is a big part of the plot, so the show itself is fierce just like her. This role suits her perfectly. I've always appreciated Jada Pinkett Smith for being such a tough babe.   Mostly a serious hospital drama, but also with hints of humor.  Overall, an entertaining and inspiring show. I have been watching Season 2, which just came out on DVD and Season 3, which just started on TNT. I recommend giving it a watch!



Breaking Bad Season 3 . One of the best shows on TV. Season 4 is about to get underway, with Season 3 having just been released on DVD & Blu-ray. If you have seen the show, then you know how awesome it is. The plot follows Walt, a high school chemistry teacher, who is forced to use his chemistry genius to cook Meth after he finds out he is (potentially) terminally ill. He partners up with a former student of his and business ultimately booms for them. I won't reveal too much more because I don't want to spoil things for potential watchers. Season 3 was great and I'm really looking forward to Season 4.



Just Go With It

I'm a pretty big fan of Adam Sandler across the board. I'd say that JGWI is my fav film of his since 50 First Dates (which is tied with Happy Gilmore for my favorite).

Sandler films tend to be very strong when it comes to supporting characters. Brooklyn Decker and Jennifer Aniston make for excellent eye candy and  are both pretty hilarious in the film. The kids are hysterical - full of hilarious quotes. And my favorite character of all is by far "Dolph Lundgren" played by Nick Swardson. I hope he uses more of Swardson in future films.

“I am ze Dolph Lundgren, Devlin’s man-friend slash love-monkey!”



Barney's Version

I'm convinced that Paul Giamatti's presence in any film automatically validates it. Argue with me all you want, but I have yet to see a film of his that I didn't enjoy.

Barney's Version is a showcase of Paul Giamatti at his best. The story takes us through a roller coaster of experiences that is the life of Canadian TV producer Barney Panofsky. In my opinion, no other actor is better suited to interpret this ride than Giamatti. His character is not likable, yet somehow P.G. manages to captivate you and even convince you to root for him; a testament to his acting ability no doubt. The supporting cast is phenomenal too, with notable roles by Dustin Hoffman (my absolute favorite), Minnie Driver, and Rosamund Pike.

There's a reason why Barney's Version received such high acclaim during awards season. Highly recommend!



For any fans of the war film genre, Wolfgang Petersen's 1982 film DAS BOOT was just digitally remastered for Blu-ray. I now own both the original and the new director's cut. If you own, the original, I still recommend looking into it. If you own neither or haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and watch the film. You won't be disappointed. LA Times has called it "the most convincing war movie ever made."



*And fyi, the Blu-ray extras are incredible. Bonus features include:

-  full commentary with Wolfgang Peters
-  extensive documentary footage from filming in 1981
-  overviews of the control and captain's room, and then some

The Final Destination (guilty pleasure franchise)
heres a list of the latest i bought all winners eh?

 THE FIGHTER
 THE DILEMMA
 RABBITT HOLE
 CARCASSES
SNIPER: RELOADED

As a big fan of the series, I was pumped about this one. I like how they tie them all together with the family connection. Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) isn't in this one, but is son is one of the main characters. I thought that was a cool spin in the series. Overall, it's a great, suspenseful action flick. The whole Sniper concept is such a badass route for an action protagonist.

I recommend SNIPER: RELOADED if you're a fan of the series or if you're simply a fan of action films.



THE HIT LIST. Cuba Gooding Jr. was awesome in this film! He plays a hitman, Jonas,  who starts taking out Cole Hauser's coworkers/family at Hauser's (joking/accidental) request. The plot really begins when Hauser figures it out and tries to stop Jonas. Very suspenseful. I'd definitely categorize it as a "psychological thriller"


_____________________________________________

THE ILLUSIONIST. Created by a French mime, director & actor Jacques Tati in 1956. It was written as a personal letter to his estranged eldest daughter. It's interesting to note that before watching the film. Also that the main character is an animated version of Tati. Very cool film, it received Oscar recognition for good reason! 


_____________________________________________


DROP DEAD DIVA. This was my gf's call. She's kind of insane about this show. That said, I have to admit that it's actually an entertaining show. Margaret Cho was my fav character on the show. Always got a kick out of her.

This was a great follow up to the 2003 film. It doesn't have the star power of the first, but I thought the cast did a great job nonetheless. The one very recognizable face in the film is Robert Patrick, who plays the villain. I've always thought highly of him in the villain role - esp. after Terminator 2. I also thought it was great that they filmed in Detroit. I'm happy to see Detroit getting some love from Hollywood. Very solid action film. The training sequences were especially cool.



How Do You Know

I didn't know much about this film before watching it. Needless to say, I was surprise to see multiple all-star cast members associated with it: Jack Nicholson, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon. Not to mention, it was directed and written by James L. Brooks. A thoroughly entertaining comedy. I just find it entertaining to see several of my fav actors on screen at once, as they are in this film. Totally worth the watch. Has some really hilarious moments; you're bound to when you you have Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson on screen together.


Stand By Me

"You guys wanna go see a dead body?" - One of my favorite films of all time. I'm especially sentimental about SBM because it's a film I loved growing up. I just picked up the bluray. In my opinion, it should be a required film for anyone's collection. Such an great cast, way before anyone knew who they were.


The Tourist

This film has such a classy feel to it. So much elegance and luxury visually, topped off by two of the biggest stars hollywood has to offer. It's just cool to watch them interact on screen together - and in Venice of all places! I particularly enjoyed Johnny Depp's performance. I think he really nailed the role of the seemingly-genius idiot, as contradictory as that description sounds. The tackles a little bit of all genres Drama/Comedy/Mystery/Suspense, etc which makes it pretty unique.

Made in Dagenham

The film is based on a true story of a the Ford sewing machinists strike of 1968. The strike was huge for female laborers worldwide and led to the Equal Pay Act of 1970 (or so says wiki). Made in Dagenham dramatically depicts the events surrounding that strike. The lead role is played by Sally Hawkins, who is awesome in the film. Very, very funny. She plays Rita who unwittingly ends up in the forefront of this strike. As you can imagine, Ford gets pissed about the strike and drama ensues. I won't say much more, except that the supporting cast is also great. Albert Passingham and Miranda Richardson play memorable supporting roles in the film. Very uplifting. Not exactly the chick flick that I expected before watching. Definitely recommend Made in Dagenham.  



Country Strong



Gwyneth Paltrow played a really convincing drunk/ recovering drunk. You feel sorry for he and you want her to succeed, but at the same time you just kind of want to shakre her and yell "snap out of it!" ... and then the ending. Whew!

Anyways, great film. I really appreciated that all of the actors actually sang their own tunes. The story is much more believable that way. It really made the film for me. They're all legitimately talented.
INSIDE JOB

A bunch of my friends had recommended this one. After seeing them capture the Oscar for best doc, I figured it was high time I watch it. The content of the documentary is excellent. In addition to that, the film is beautifully shot. Very well done. Very Entertaining. They really break down the financial crisis nicely, in terms that pretty much anyone can understand. I also enjoyed the narration by Matt Damon. Oh and one more subtle detail, but I felt like it made the film better - the film score/soundtrack is great. All in all, I'd say that Inside Job definitely earned its Oscar.

Wesley Snipes new film "Game of Death." As far as I know, it released in Japanese theaters, but not in the US. I'm a big fan of Wesley Snipes's action films and I thought this one looked interesting. The fight scenes in particular seem pretty intense. Kind of looks like a mix of Murder at 1600 and Blade. And by that, I mean the martial arts are amped up a bit, but he still plays a federal agent.      

Trailer: http://on.fb.me/ie9rF3

Tamara Drewe  - The film is a rather witty British comedy on love and sex. The title character Tamara Drewe is played by the very beautiful Gemma Arterton. Not many other notable appearances, but all of the characters are hilarious - especially the two teenage girls.  The film is based on a comic strip/graphic novel by the same title. That comic strip was regarded as a modern reworking on Thomas Hardy's novel "Far from the Madding Crowd."  

Didn't really have any expectations going into it and I ended up thoroughly enjoying it.



Faster

I found this film to be really entertaining. It is what it is - a meat and potatoes action film. That said, there are also some effective twists in the plot that make it better than most from this genre of action film. I very much enjoyed Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock" in the lead role. He plays the badass role really well. Maybe it's the fact that he can actually kick my butt in real life. The rest of the cast is pretty good too. I never would have expected to see BIlly Bob Thornton in a film with The Rock, but it worked. Billy Bob is also very good. I would recommend this film to any action fan or any viewer who is looking for some raw entertainment (aka gun fights and $h*t blowing up).





Get Low

Robert Duvall and BIll Murray - need I say more? Both of these guys are among my favorite actors of all time, so it was given that I would enjoy the film. Bill Murray has a unique way of blending comedy with drama. In Get Low he displays that ability quite nicely. The acting is phenomenal across the board. Lucas Black's performance is another one that stands out, aside from Murray and Duvall.  Film is also very beautifully shot. I read that this was director Aaron Schneider's first film. He did an excellent job.

"A Woman, A Gun and A Noodle Shop" -  Chinese remake of the Coen brothers' 1985 film Blood Simple. Cool perspective on the original story. Major components aren't different, but the director ___ made a few tweaks to fulfill his vision of the story. Definitely recommend giving it a watch, esp if you're a Coen Bros fan.




"Welcome to the Rileys" - I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The cast is awesome- James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo are always on point. Cool to see Melissa in a performance pre The Fighter. Some people like to hate on Kristen Stewart. I get that, I'm not a Twilight fan either. If you can put that aside, I think you'll like her in the film. I thought she did a great job.

Animal Kingdom. This is the best Crime Drama I have seen in a while. A female character in power (Jacki Weaver's character) definitely offers a different dynamic from the more typical crime family. Such great character development too. Very impressed with David Michôd in his feature film debut. It would be tough for Jacki Weaver to win an Oscar for this role given her opposition, but I hope she at least gets the nomination, as she did at the Golden Globes.  





Justified, the first season. Sort of a contemporary cowboy action series. Originally aired on FX. As far as I know, they're signed on for second season. It's Adapted from Elmore Leonard's stories Pronto, Riding the Rap, & Fire in the Hole. Timothy Olyphant is great as Raylan Givens. Gotta love the no bulls**t approach to justice.  





Virginity Hit. I originally found out about this movie from some posters on the subway advertising a "hotline for virgins." That makes me sound really cool. Anyways, long story short, I think this movie is hilarious.  Reviews were not great, but you have to keep in mind what you're dealing with: a teenage sex comedy. It's not supposed to win Oscars, it's supposed to be stupid and hilarious - which it is. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay. Also has an AMAZING cameo by Rock N Roll GREAT and former Creed frontman Scott Stapp. I s**t you not.



Nowhere Boy. The John Lennon biopic by Sam Taylor-Wood starring Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass) and Kristin Scott Thomas. Very cool look at the early life of John Lennon and his struggles with teenage angst. A great idea for a film - very well acted and directed. Looking forward to seeing more from both Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson after watching this film.



 

Red Hill. I really enjoy Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse on True Blood and I have been very interested to see him in another role outside of that character. Here was my opportunity. He did not disappoint with his performance. In fact I'd say he steals the show. As Capone from AICN said "Kwanten is utterly badass." Don't let the fact that this is not a well know film fool you, it's an excellent suspense/thriller.



I thought Alexandre Aja did an amazing job with Piranha 3D. I had high expectations for him after The Hills Have Eyes. He did not disappoint. Totally worth the purchase in my opinion, esp for Aja fans, such as myself. Pick it up in Blu-ray 3D if you can - totally enhances the experience. Awesome, awesome film.

All were brand new. From overstocked sources I think.

Nice!!
Enchanted and Ratatouille.  

I had earned enough rewards points on one of my credit cards to obtain a $50 Amazon gift certificate.  I used said certificate to get the above mentioned DVDs; it also covered part of the cost of the soundtrack from the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

You could say that I had a Disney spell.  Wink
I picked up "The Bank Job" 2 Disc SE and "21". I was also lucky to pick up The Complete Series of Star Trek: The Next Generation for A$250. Nice!
Just bought the John Adams HBO box from Amazon. If anyone hasn't seen it, its a great miniseries.
Godfather Trilogy Steelbook Edition
and
Rambo Trilogy in a Tin Box (Brilliant set)
I'm starting slowly to convert my standard dvd into Bluray.

Got:

Casino Royale
I Am Legend
Adventures Of Young Indiana Jones volume 2
Star Trek IV and Star Trek: Generations SCE
Transformers 2-disc
Total Recall 2070
One-Armed Swordsman
Sands of Oblivion
I only bought it because it had Morena Baccarin and Adam Baldwin in it... :/
I got "Untraceable" and "The Great Debaters" last week Thursday and on Friday 9th I got "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" 2 Disc SE. YAY!! I'm going to watch NT after work tonight and see if there is any Easter Eggs like in the first release.

Untraceable is actually quite good!!! Loved the ending, Did not see it coming. Will watch it again sometime.  
You're taking the piss now positivej. Again, taken from another forum:

Just finished watching the first of like 10 maybe 15 DVD's I have, but have yet to make time to view. So I watched Wrestlemaniac first, simply because it has been sitting on my shelf by far the longset. I can honestly say that this movie was'nt that bad at all dude. It had freaking gnarly kill scenes, it had porno chicks all over the place and rogue lucha libre stars. For what it was worth, this film definitely shocked me, hopefully the others hold up the way this one did. Up next just to name a few i got Southland Tales, Revolver, The Lost, I am Legend, No Country, Tripping the Rift and a bunch of other stuff.

Bit odd that you keep watching the same films over and over again. Time for you to go.
so many good flicks
Man I feel really fortunate to have come across the quality movies I've been watching lately, they're has been a few duds in the mix but suprisingly alot of good ish has been coming out. Last Night I watched Revolver the Guy Rithcie movie. All I can say is that if you havent seen this go see it, its not what you'll expect it to be and the concept behind it is really f-ing poignant. This film really reps the conceptual evolution of man depicted thru the medium of film. I dont want to say too much, cuz well I really dont want to ruin this one. I think I'm going to watch Southland Tales next and then perhaps Val Kilmers new movie Conspiracy, which I heard was much better than its critical reception.

The slut?

Dear me...What lower lifeforms are they marketing towards.
Even "Torso" has "Where wh0res meet saws". Now that's a bit funnier...but again, where are all the wh0res in this flick?
If memory serves they are college girl types. So i guess they are called 'Wh0res' simply because they are women.

Nice to see these out uncut for sure, job well done, but please...grow up in the marketing department as we are not all knuckle-dragging Chavs.

And am just about to order Enterprise - season 4
"Witchfnder General" - With no drop in quality of the footage or distracting edits back and forth between said footage...this complete print actually shows up just how brutal and bloody this GEM of British horror cinema is.  Thank you MGM!


"The Burning" - Thank you MGM again for a quality print,  AT LAST.  
And both DVD's have a delightfully British feel thanks to the extras with "The Burning" having Brit Jouno Alan Jones commenting with it's British director (I actually had no idea this was directed by a Brit).
The sparkly new print does show up a bit of the latex work though.


"Black Candles" / "Evil Eye" - BCI, Grindhouse double bill.

"Black Snake Moan"

"The Last King of Scotland"

"A Fish called Wanda"

"Villain" - Underrated, camp and nasty 70's Brit Gangster flick with Richard Burton having a great time as the homosexual, mother loving, East End thug. At last on DVD and in a very nice print too.
Is that supposed to be an optical illusion?

It burns onto your retina's and you can still see it even if you close your eyes.
"Dragon Princess" / "Karate Warriors" - BCI, Grindhouse double bill of Chiba Chiba!

"A Tale of Two Cities" - Special Edition.
Glorious stuff this, with an amazing perfrormance by Dirk Bogarde and a real lump in the throat finale.  
The pretty,  young,  servant girl being conforted by Bogarde as she goes to the guillotine, with her  beautiful and slender neck bared ready for the blade,  as she tearfully but bravely walks to her fate was an image that stuck with me from childhood.  Powerful stuff, expertly performed and crafted.
In case no one noticed, the recent Sci-fi Film "Sunshine" is already available on DVD in Region 3, and it features DTS!!

Retro TV heaven and olde time Brit comedy haul!  Even "The Love Butcher", "Deep Throat", "Suspiria" loving Dave likes a change now and again!

Thanks to the magic of public domain titles and Ebay dupes I finally have some old childhood, 70's, TV memories in the complete series shapes of:

"Here Come the Double Deckers" -
This did actually make it over to America in the 70's.  
A gang of kids with thier own red double decker bus hideout!  
Starred a 16 year old Peter Firth who would of course go on to the likes of "Equus" with Richard Burton, "The Hunt for Red October" with Sean Connery and Tobe Hooper's "Lifeforce" with a lot of tits and zombies.

"The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe" -
A french series taken up by the BBC in the late 60's and which played well into the 70's.  Wonderfully done with a haunting main theme.

"The Banana Splits" -
Americans of a certain age will remember this too!  A wils n wacky slice of late 60's weirdness indeed!  With the antics of said Banana Splits (guys in REALLY wacky hippie dog-type suits) being split up with cartoons like "The Arabian Knights", "The Four Musketeers" and the Jan Michael Vincent shrunken people show "Danger Island".  ANOTHER classic theme song of course.


And 19 (count 'em!!) George Formby movies!  It's not hip to like his films any more, but before and during WW2 he was perhaps Britain number one film star and entertainer.  
He often entertained the troops in fact.
Silly, old fashioned, slapatick humour and comedy songs (some very cheeky and suggestive for the time!) but they still entertain if you're not a snob.  
And at a time when what was once Great Britain is being blown up and eroded away, and what's left mutated into something very sad and rather bad, a bit of nostalgia is perhaps the only haven we have left.Retro TV heaven and olde time Brit comedy haul!

Shocking!  Must have had some cash to burn.


Actually, it turned out to be more like 72 minutes, but still...
Also, it's a David Lynch film that flows like some kind of nightmare in which nothing is quite what it seems, so i think he might have had a hard time deciding what should go into the film. It's definitely a masterpiece though.

I went to my fave second hand shop today to have a look and see what Region 1's are good to buy. When I got there, I was surprised with all these TV shows on DVD, all Region 1! I bought "The Nanny" Season 2, "JAG" Season 1, "BONES" Season 1, "Numb3rs" Season 1, and a few others. They were really cheap, too!!

I saw everything from Friends to The West Wing, Murder One to The Brady Bunch. I'm going back there on Wednesday to pick up some more. And I'm told there's more coming within weeks. Region 4 TV shows on DVD are poor quality in terms of packaging. Don't like them at all.

Bo Boi, if you are interested, head down to LAWSON's Record Centre at 380 Pitt Street, Sydney and see if there's any TV shows you might be interested in.

95% of all the DVD's I saw are BRAND NEW! Still in their plastic wrapping. Prices between
A$25 to A$45. ( about U.S.S21 to U.S.$39) Very affordable!!

"The Stone Merchant" - Can't find it?  Not been able to see it?  Perhaps not even heard of it?
Even though it's a cracking thriller that stars Harvey Keitel and F. Murray Abraham?

Well perhaps that's because this film DOES NOT call Americans scum, Jews criminals, The West evil or hail political Islam as a noble thing of progress, peace and love.
All things that of course ensured this film was murdered at birth.  
Seek it out, annoy the Islamist fanboys and catch another fine slice of Keitel doing his thing along with some well staged action and astute political observation.

Mark Lim wrote: CHIPs looks tempting. I'll get it later in the year.

From the 2 discs that I've watched so far, I think Warners has done an excellent job on this release. The episodes look great especially for a 30 year old show, with the exception of a few minor artifacts here and there and the occasional purple looking faces on the actors. I don't think the series ever looked better. There are some fun introductions by Estrada but they should have been done for every episode. Sadly, Wilcox is missing from the extras.
Ghost Rider, Hellboy and The Fountain on Blu-ray.
Fox US maybe, but over here it was releases as a new Definitive Edition without audio glitches and remastered video. Unfortunately I don't do PAL speed-up...

You guys do get screwed royally by Fox in the States though. Then again, we pay almost double what you do for DVDs.

Well, let's say it's by far the best Spider-Man 2 release, packagewise this is a grade A work of art with supreme materials, that if you like collecting LE only though, cuz it's quite expensive. But once you got started on collecting Japanese LE, there's no turning back...

Spider-Man best release for the first movie is the French Wooden Box

Gotta admit I'm green with envy, BoBoi. That's an amazing DVD release of Lost in Translation.

Yeah, abosultely the best release of Lost in Translation. However, the price of Japanese dvd is also amazing (-ly high). But what the hell I guess 'Wink
I bought "Coming to America" Special Collector's Edition. I like that the dvd has subtitles. With my little hearing disability, I found it hard sometimes to catch on what some of the characters are saying, especially when they speak too fast!

Great extras! Paticularly the first one, where Director John Landis reminicses about all the major cast and the filming. Interesting that Vanessa Williams almost played the part of Sherri! And Sidney Poitier was considered for the role of the King. In the end, great casting!

Also bought "Ghost Rider: Extended Cut" and "Breach"! Very happy with these purchases.

I bought the Dreamgirls 2 Disc, and can't figure out why Paramount/ Dreamworks stated that Jennifer Hudson won an Academy Award for 2006? Last time I checked, it was 2007!

And why is it that the single disc cover art looks better than the 2 Disc.

The Australian release in May has the U.S. single disc cover as the 2 Disc. and Vice versa! Now why can't they do the same?

To the person who's been getting rid of their good Region 1 collection, please sell more. I know he most likely is not a member here, but I just wanted to say it anyway.

I should get "The Departed" 2 Disc SE tomorrow. I know it's Saturday, but my friend should already have it by today Friday afternoon. I was told his shipment was going through customs at Sydney Airport. I'm also still waiting on "The Devil Wears Prada" Limited Edition R3. Hopefully next week. Happy

I don't mean it like that. I have a BIG wish list, by the way. So sometimes there are DVD's that I may have overlooked that I like, which I would like in my collection. There are just so many I want, I can't keep up, especially the old TV shows.

Out of interest, whats your problem? I don't think I've seen a single positive comment/post by you.
And Blahhhh means??
Blahhhh
If you need to be reminded by a forum of what DVDs to buy theres something wrong..
Sam
Mark, are you seriously saying that you type in what dvd's you've bought into a forum so you know what you bought/own?!!?!!? I'm not complaining, I just cant see the point.
I don't see what Sam is complaining about. I like this, so we can keep track of what we have bought, and also see what others have bought as well. Sometimes, Others can give reminders as to what you need to buy, but forgot about them.

Brilliant. Thanks Stephen for flagging this one up, Nate and Hayes that is. I'd been waiting for this film to eventually come out on DVD for years. Over in the UK it's called Savage Islands and it's a bit of a childhood memory. I saw it in the very early 80's in a cinema as a double bill along with Airplane 2. My memory of it was that it was a fun film, although I was only 10/11 years old at the time. Hopefully it won't have aged too badly over the the last 25 or so years. We'll just have to see. It arrived this morning so fingers crossed. I may even watch Airplane 2 along with it just for the shear nostalgia of it.

I got the 1920s version of Jekyll and Hyde. I think it's the oldest one. But anyway, I saw LitW and Wicker Man, and while not great, they were both a weak ten bucks. All The Kings Men I have to take back because it's messed up, but I'll get a replacement copy tomorrow or Thursday.

Aye, not sure on the exact proportions, but a gallon is more than a quart I believe. A quart is a litre to me, just easier to say I suppose Tongue
Mal wrote: Cheddar J. Cheese wrote: A quart of milk
Never heard of a quart before, had to look that one up... assumed it would mean a quarter of one pint or litre.


It's usually a shock to the system if you're from the UK and you do some food shopping in the US. Am I right in saying the quart equals a quarter gallon of milk? They're huge. So is the fruit over there. Apples are massive. About the size of what we would have as cooking apples over here. It's definately true what they say. Everything is bigger over there. Except elbows. They're generally the same size.

No, he is saying "Don't post! No one wants to know what you bought!"   I'm with Tony on this one, I'm really sick of all the spam that's come through the site in recent months. Can't anything be done about it?

Last Bought: Superman 14 Disc Collection
I think what's Poppy is trying to say is that you don't have to give out all the other details like where you got your new purchases from i.e. dvd region, country, shop, etc. No body cares about that, unless you're like me, and you get Region 1 discs two weeks early!

Poppy, I've got no problem with banning you as well. As I pointed out earlier, I won't tolerate visitors being rude to the admins or contributors. We work long and hard on this site, and don't expect to have to put up with rudeness from people who contribute little or nothing. It's entirely up to you, but it's zero tolerance from now on because I've had more than enough of it.
Was referring to an individuals comments earlier
Slapping a few people!! Your hard.. If anypne needs a slap its YOU..
I've bought a whole bunch to distribute as Christmas presents, but I got the recent 4-disc Ben-Hur box from WB off of Amazon for only $17, so I took a chance and watched it for the first time. What an AMAZING film. It's probably the most epic one I've ever seen. Now I know what all those movies and directors were trying to copy over the years.

£ukasz D wrote: OldBoy - why not R1 3-Disc Edition....looks so great (or maybe you have it to ??)

Because I own three versions of OldBoy and I don't need to replicate the stuff I already have. As any DVD collector will tell you, the original Korean Special Edition is different to all other versions of OldBoy on DVD as it features a director-approved transfer. That's why it goes for a lot of money on ebay.

Quote: The Shawshank Redemption - you mean the 10th Anniversary 3-Disc set ???? .....if not then you should regret...superb set.

As I said, the Special Edition. I already own the original R4 release but I fancied having a look at the new bonus material.

Whatever, Poppy. Looks like the truth of who some people like you really are is coming out. If you or anyone who doesn't like the way this forum is run, you can all go find another forum that "SUITS TO YOUR LIKING". Surely, there is nothing wrong with being nice every once in a while. You should try that!

Anyway, I finally got "The Devil Wears Prada" on DVD. Only just finished watching it. Great movie. Very funny. Did not know Simon Baker is in this. He is a pretty good actor. The Gag reel is very funny. I like the bits where some of the film crew pretends to be Meryl Streep's character, with their own wig and stuff. Hilarious!

Good job Chris. Yeah. I speak on behalf of everyone here, that we are behind you 100%!
I'm 31 Sam, but you don't see me posting s**t about Minstrels and Cybertron. As Tony pointed out, I'm an admin, and I'm getting extremely pissed off with the lack of respect shown toward me and the reviewers on this site. I asked you a question, to which you replied with an insult. Is it any wonder that I threatened you with a ban?

If you continue to make disruptive/abusive posts you will be banned. If I find out you're someone else masquerading as a 'new' user you will be reported to your ISP. This is your final warning.

Uhh Tony, so? AND whats more, whats it got to do with YOU? There are too many people on this site jumpimg in and s**t stirring.
Uhh Sam, he's the admin... maybe thats why.
Sam
And you keep replying too. Again always the last word! Now then how old are you now? Or dont you like that sort of information posted? Oh but then again I do know.. Or lets just say I know someone who DOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And yet you keep replying... You age has everything to do with it. It's the sort of thing I expect from 15 year olds like Ian Schultz, not grown men.
Sam
But its ok for you to try and belittle me by bring up my age? What the hell has that got to do with anything?!? And "Comedy genius"? What the hells that about? You just sound a bit selfrighteous and you always like the last word on the subject.
I'm replying to your posts. That's how threads work. My sense of humour is fine, it's just that you're not the comedy genius you believe yourself to be. People generally only get banned for insulting me or other users (or spamming/breaking the AUP), which you did. It's against the AUP you signed when you joined.
Sam
Chris it appears your sense of humour is lacking.. Ive noticed through previous posts you always have to have the last word!! And then resort to your bad boy bully tactics of 'your banned'..
Sam, if indeed you have just turned 30 - as indicated by your profile - I would have thought you would have better things to do than post s**te on our website.
I find it funny when sc**pbook is edited out.
Sam
Hi Mark I'm from Cybertron, where are you from? Chris, I was only joking, no need to threaten to ban me.

Tried to edit so I'll post again.....Hi Mark I'm from Cybertron, where are you from? A place where you like everyone to be banned. ( "Goodee, Mr Baddass is banned" ) Anyone?? Chris, I was only joking, no need to threaten to ban me. Just trying to ponit out this thread is silly, just like my " stupid comments ".

Can anyone beat me to one of the world's first ownership of Mission Impossible 3: 2 Disc Edition???! I got my Region 1 edition today!! It was shipped on Tuesday and arrived in Sydney on Friday. My friend, who runs an import store in Sydney, received it in the early afternoon.

There's a cool trailer for "Transformer"(directed by Michael Bay), as well as "World Trade Center". But what surprised me is the trailer promoting all the movies on DVD( produced by Paramount/ Dreamworks )that Tom Cruise starred in. Didn't Paramount Pictures fire him? So why would they continue to promote him then?

Have yet to check out the Special Features. Oh, and the 2 Disc does not have the two clip ons, on the side of the case. And the inside does not even have an insert for the second disc. Both discs are placed on each side.

I'll try and post pics tomorrow. Woo-Hoo!

Scarface (Platinum Edition)

Saw 2
X-Men The Last Stand
uh... Clive Owen? Identity is a a completely different tone of the film, Identity is just a straight foward film, while "Supremacy" is just a stupid over blown film with Greengrass' pointless shots and c**p which ruined it.

and I just lied and said the disc was messed up, my mam did it for me

I had to return The Bourne Identity due to it being a rentel disc and on the back said it had all the bonus stuff so I swopped it for...

Ronin (1-dsc)

 and I than got the bourne identity SE for £5
You sure don't like Greengrass. Wink

Did they just take it back although you had watched the film? Strange. Did you say it was something wrong with the disc or did they even ask?

I wouldn't recommend Identity if you hated Supremacy. Supremacy is a better film. (as the name implies)
Btw, it's basically the same cast in both bourne films.
i returned united 93

and I got

dark water (2005)
the bourne identity (original release)


p.s I hate bourne supremecy and I saw the trailer for identity and it's looks totally different and the cast is badass
I picked up "Click" and "Garfield: A tale of Two Kitties". Both for fun. I know that these are not exactly some of the best movies of 06, but I like to see some fun movies every once in a while.
ok.... it had no character development, the camera shots were just awful, it just got boring after a while, I mean come on if you think a bomb somebody is carrying is fake and their carrying c**ppy little knifes, would you just go at them with everything you got? I know I would
You don't have to see it as the truth, I don't know if I do. As a film, it's definately worth seeing IMO. It's a very powerful film and i'm not embarassed to say that it brought tears to my eyes.

I thought it was great too. My favorite part was the first person shooter and when I saw it in theaters with friends, we had one hell of a time.

They're one of my favorite extras on DVDs, but are somewhat of a rarity anymore. Neither of those DVDs have them and should, especially The Omen, so when I saw the LD with score available for around $8 I went ahead and picked it up.

If the Terminator 2 dvd is still there on Wednesday (it's the only copy and it's second hand R1, very rare in Sydney!) I might get it. It's A$24.95. Not bad for a limited edition. I like the hard rock cover.

I stick to the following saying....."Good things comes to those who wait!"

If you're not desperate for a particular dvd, I say you wait. I wait, and eventually someone who buys the R1 may want to sell it second hand later, and I get to buy it cheaper!! Or even in your case in the U.S. your dvd shop lowers the price!

If you're a fan of James Cameron, get this disc purely for his commentary track. The picture quality is slightly improved over the UE. Something you might want to consider (or not) depending on your TV size.

I recommend buying the extreme edition,
but keep the UE since it has the 156 minute cut and the DTS track.

Someone out there in Sydney is getting rid of their brand new R1 dvd's and I'm happy to buy them. Most of them on the shelves are old anyway, with many Ingmar Bergman films, not my kind of movies anyhow.
I bought Chicken Little to keep my Disney collection up to date.
and I didn't order Harry Potter 4 yet even though  I don't really want it, my parents do, i'm sick of Pothead

I picked up 3 Extremes, from www.dvdfromkorea.com- including postage for £12.50!!!

Watch those Region Codes though. The cheaper the player, the more chance it can be hacked e.c.t.

Incidently, the last DVD I bought was the Werner Herzog boxset from Anchor Bay.

I insist you get it, even for the title of one of its films,

Even Dwarfs Started Small.

A great movie- in the same sorta vibe as Tod Browning's Freaks.


I have the boxset

I ordered
Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire (my parents want it,i've just been turned off Harry Potter by the last book)

Let's see?  In the past week I've been sort of slacking.  I got A History of Violence and the Psycho remake.  Vince Vaughn made that movie.

Lord of War R2 2 Disc. Seen it twice now. Can't decide whether its a work of genius or deeply flawed. You can't engage with Cage's character nor would you want him to be too charming to pull the audience in more. To do that would have left an even worse after taste. A very depressing film but an important one.
ichi the kiler uncut 2 disc edition and the league of extraordinary men 2 disc special edition :D
A couple of religious DVDs are on the way to me from Deep Discount ~

Back to the Future trilogy - 1 is the worst (actully 3 is the worst and 2 is the best)

I can do the same, from my friend who gets Region 1 DVD's anywhere up to two weeks before you guys! DVD warehouses/ suppilers in America actually have all the new releases two weeks in advance, ready for shipping to customers overseas!!

I got "The Weather Man" two weeks before the release date.
Last week, I bought "North Country" and "Elizabethtown".
This week, I bought "Yours, Mine & Ours".

I try to apply that same criteria as well. Am I going to watch this again? Assuming I can get something for them, I try to have a cull 2 or 3 times a year to thin out the collection because very often I look at it an see that there ends up being quite a lot of durge in amongst the stiff you actually want to keep and watch again. Plus, with one eye on HD in the future, I don't want a massive redundant collection to off load, like VHS. I'm just in the process of transferring my remaining VHS to DVD (about 20 odd tapes mostly of old TV) and once that is done it's to the land fill. I can't stand the feeling of boxes of unwatched unused 'plastic' lying around. It's like a great weight is lifted when you can get rid of it. The Fight Club quote is absolutely bang on in my view, 'The things you own end up owning you'. So I try to keep the DVD collection at around the 300 mark. If I'd have kept everything it would be up at around 1500 titles which for me is insane. When a collection starts taking up a room it's time to re-assess what's important in life. But that's me. In somone like Tony's shoes, if I had the means, I'd be buying tons of stuff as well. I know this because I bought loads of VHS back in the day, and enjoyed it. There does come a time though when all you see is a huge mass of plastic that you have to house, keep in order and move around with you.

Anyone else in this love hate relationship with their collection?
Jeesh! You guys buy a whole load of tosh!

I try to hold off and only buy DVDs that I know I like and will re-watch. I learnt my lesson when I sold off all my VHS and realised it was a massive bunch of rubbish. I vowed not to waste my cash on c**p again.

captmarvel wrote: Je Ff - Of the classic dvds I mentioned above my vote for the best of the lot would have to go to Captains Courageous.  I had never seen The Good Earth and watched it over the weekend.  While I enjoyed it, I have to admit that it was a bit depressing through much of the movie.  Not a movie for animal lovers---especially if you're partial to oxen!  This was the last movie that Irving Thalberg had greenlighted at MGM before his death and it has a dedication to him at the beginning of the film.  It was his type of material; an epic story from a big novel.  The leads were okay, but their makeup was somewhat distracting.  You could see baldcaps and spirit gum seam lines all over the place.  This film would have been better if somebody like Jack Pierce (The Universal Monsters) had done the makeups.  The only Pearl Buck books I've read are her Old and New Testament versions of the Bible.  Like I said, I enjoyed seeing the movie but I realize that it is not everybody's cup of tea.  
Meanwhile, I see you picked up Final Destination 2.  I love those movies!  Unlike most contemporary horror movies they are extremely creative!  I can't wait to see the new one---in about four months when it comes out on dvd.


Thank you very much for this.  Maybe I'll rent it one day, but I really didn't like the book.  While I was reading it, I kept thinking, "What are they trying to tell me?".  I just didn't like it.
And the Final Destination movies are great.  I heard that the original was delayed for years because New Line didn't want to make it because it didn't have a traditional "killer".  Now they're on number 3.  3 should be great.  I've been trying to avoid trailers and TV spots so I wouldn't see any of the deaths, but that didn't work.  They're giving away a little too much information if you ask me.  At Target, the Scared 2 Death pack had the 2 movies, the bonus disc, and a ticket to #3 for 14.99, but they were out so I just bought #2 for 9 dollars.

Je Ff - Of the classic dvds I mentioned above my vote for the best of the lot would have to go to Captains Courageous.  I had never seen The Good Earth and watched it over the weekend.  While I enjoyed it, I have to admit that it was a bit depressing through much of the movie.  Not a movie for animal lovers---especially if you're partial to oxen!  This was the last movie that Irving Thalberg had greenlighted at MGM before his death and it has a dedication to him at the beginning of the film.  It was his type of material; an epic story from a big novel.  The leads were okay, but their makeup was somewhat distracting.  You could see baldcaps and spirit gum seam lines all over the place.  This film would have been better if somebody like Jack Pierce (The Universal Monsters) had done the makeups.  The only Pearl Buck books I've read are her Old and New Testament versions of the Bible.  Like I said, I enjoyed seeing the movie but I realize that it is not everybody's cup of tea.  
Meanwhile, I see you picked up Final Destination 2.  I love those movies!  Unlike most contemporary horror movies they are extremely creative!  I can't wait to see the new one---in about four months when it comes out on dvd.
Well, I'm going out on Valentine's Day and picking up "Grey's Anatomy" right away. God, I love that show. I'm also gonna get the first three seasons of Degrassi, the 2-disc Fight Club, and the 2-disc Beauty and the Beast.
However, I think the last thing I bought was Wedding Crashers Uncorked.

and wasn't this done before?
Wedding Crashers, Final Destination 2, and The Adventures of Pete And Pete -  Season 2.  And captmarvel, have you read the Good Earth?  I had to read it last year and I HATED it.  I couldn't even bring myself to rent the movie.  Could you please tell me about the movie.
Last week it was The Corpse Bride, The Legend of Zorro, Cimarron, The Champ, The Good Earth, Captain's Courageous (love getting my hands on the classics!) and the special edition of To Kill a Mockingbird (on sale at Best Buy for $9.99).  This week it was Ryan's Daughter, Hostage, Crash, Wallace and Grommit the Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Terms of Endearment (which was in a dump bin at Circuit City for $5!).  I looooove my dvd player!
