last DVD I bought was the Venture Bros. Season 1....best buy in the last couple of months easily. Way better than any of the re-issues that have been spilling out all over the place, with the exception of course of the Dirty Dozen.

I bought Venture Bros soon after it was released.

This week I was shopping online and purchased the latest Venetian Snares CD and decided to pick up Serenity as well.

Bought myself a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Dead Mans Shoes double bill. The formers got the best title sequence in a long long time and the latter gets better with each viewing. The term - 'Fuckin elephant wiv massive eyes' - inspired.

Kingdom of Heaven - 4-Disc Director's Cut

I have yet to see the film at all, but I do recall reading complaints of how it was cut. I'll now get to see this as intended.

What did you make of History of Violence Unikrunk? I really rate that movie.....but a lot of people were disappointed by it :shock:

I finally watched Sympathy for Lady Vengeance last night. I'm still reeling from it....what a brutal, cold, thought-provoking film. And yes, ok, some warmth in there too courtesy of her daughter....but I say all of the above in praise of the movie, not to its detriment.

I've watched the films you'd expect in terms of Asian - Flying Badgers, Hero, Ong Bakk, Tigger's Dragon.....but Sympathy really is the only one that stood out to me as authentically Asian cinema....as opposed to Hollywood-meets-wirework-meets-subtitles.

I am now resolved to get the other two films from the Vengeance trilogy. I also need to watch Lady Vengeance again as last night I was too busy watching it to think about it an have most likely missed a lot of little detail.

A really, really good film.

I bougt the DVD thw work of director mark romanek.

All of his music videos and some extra stuff, with storyboards and photos in the booklet (about 50 pages).

Haven't watched much yet.

For the record, I though History of violence was amazing. Only saw it once at the cinema, got the DVD last month, just gotta find the time.

Vicar: I'm assuming that Island of Lost Souls is Region2? Damn, I don't get why they keep releasing second tier Universal stuff here- see the forthcoming Karloff collection- and this is nowhere to be found.

Otherwise:

I don't think its any kind of region at all - some bloke burned a copy off laserdisc...damned nice copy too.
Picked it up on eBay, of course.
As far as I know there's never actually been a legit DVD release of this title....and there should be.

Both films are excellent. The animation is top notch and the voice talent is exceptional. I strongly suggest renting the films to see if you enjoy them.

Suitable for Jillian?

She's a bit advanced in her viewing sophistication than a lot of kids her age.
She'll chose Iron Giant over a Care Bears video, fer instance.

I'm a huge Miyazaki fan, and loved SEN NO CHIHIRO / SPIRITED AWAY,
but I was disappointed by HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE; something was missing
there for me; like hints of a war we never really see, and the heroine
spending most of the film as a crone! I want valiant, virtuous, pixie-girl

That settles it.
Spirited Away, and if she likes it, Howl.
Can't wait to see what she makes of these....

Thanks Bob & ZZS.

I just picked up that new 2 disc Halloween documentary.
Where it goes over all the movies in depth and has a fuck-load of interviews and what-not...

I'll chime in eventually when I get a chance to check it out...

It was just under $20 too...plus, of course, "Fuck-You Tax"

that's a good disc...some good special features...I actually recently picked up that one - Signs, 6th sense and checked out all the features over a couple days...(as well as the village, which i already had)

Very comprehensive and - say what you will bout Night's ego - at least there is alot of in depth stuff to peruse over...

enjoy it well...

If she's five either Totoro or Kiki's Delivery Service will delight. Particularly the latter. I think it's Miyazaki's most accessible film OVER Howl's and Spirited Away. Mononoke... could possibly be a little boring for her. It's quite deep, no doubt a beautiful film, but was necessarily criticised for casting its net too wide and contains some quite violent scenes.

I got a friend of mine out in China to buy me three boxsets: 1) Had 15 Ingmar Bergman films 2) Had 17 Akira Kurosawa films 3) Had every film Hitchcock ever made. He got 'em for next to nothing as well. Sure some of the early Kurosawa movies have some very fucking dodgy translations (a quote from One Wonderful Sunday: "You will eat me later at restaurant?" when a character was asking a woman if she'd go to dinner with him), but at that price I'm not complaining.

dude, me too.

we have a couple of pretty bitchin indie record shops down here in SD. Lou's Records, Off the Record, Blue Meanie, etc. but the first time i went to amoeba in SF, i almost cried. it was like almost a spiritually moving kind of experience. like i have thought about planning trips around going to that store, because they have everything. and i mean fucking EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
best record shop EVAR!!!!!!!
now they have one in LA, which occasionally has some great in-store performances, but they still pale in comparison to san fran. if you like records, and you are going to be in san francisco, do yourself a favor, and budget a few extra dollars to drop at old amoeba. you wont be sorry you did!
