The commentary is hilarious, and not intentionally so. However I read twice now that some of the score has been messed with, and that's disturbing to me. I'm going to wait this one out...

I, also, own a copy of Howard the Duck, as mentioned above. It's not a good movie, but Jeffrey Jones is quite good in it. Also, it only cost $5 at Wal*Mart. For that price, I'll buy lots of things -- but not The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I've passed that up several times.

Picked up Paul yesterday, to Jillian's delight. She loves Paul. 90% of the humor goes over her head, but she dearly adores the ludicrous cursing of Kristin Wiig, ie: "You bet your hairy love eggs". I love watching for the moments when you knew the actors were barely holding it together until the cameras stopped rolling.

We watched the theatrical release, of course. Later, I want to watch the uncut version with Vicar, laughter being the best medicine and all.... :D

Alfred Hitchcock's "Lifeboat". I haven't seen it yet. I hadn't known it was written by John Steinbeck - cool!

Also, my roomie got an obscure old German movie called Gold. Apparently it was the inspiration for The Magnetic Monster. Too bad it has no subtitles. Great set designs, though!

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.

The Caller

Pleasantly surprised by this flick! I've read some commentary that criticized the filmmakers for borrowing from a few different horror films past. What isn't borrowed these days? I thought they did an excellent job. Stephen Moyer and Rachelle Lefevre were great as the two main leads. And Lorna Raver scared the s**t out of me. Damn that lady is creepy!

Onigamiden: Legend of the Millennium Dragon

Beautifully animated and a badass plot. Hirotsugu Kawasaki (director) did a phenomenal job bringing this legend to life. The story goes like this: a seemingly average/every-day school boy is thrust back in time 1200 years to the Heian period in Japan, where he is deemed the savior to a village of people. Initially he doubts his ability, but he soon realizes that this is no joke - he really is their only hope. He ultimately comes into his own and tames a pretty awesome 8-headed dragon in the process to save the day (as you might expect).

Anyways, if you're into anime or just animation generally, you should check this out. Very impressive artwork!

Roomie went on a bit of a buying spree. We got Breakheart Pass, Puss In Boots, The Anderson Tapes, The Adventures of Tintin (3D), Ransom (Mel Gibson version), Conspiracy Theory, The Last Voyage, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Paul, John Wayne Western 3-pack (includes The Sons of Katie Elder, the Man Who Shot Liberty Valence, and The Shootist), Marooned, Toy Story 3 (3D), and a few others. He's stocking up because he's having hip replacement surgery in less than two weeks and is going to be laid up in bed with nothing to do except watch movies.

I bought a DVD of Moonrise Kingdom the other day for $5, which I thought was a pretty good deal, HOWEVER-

I still felt a bit dirty inside. My DVD-buying rhythm has greatly slowed over the past 2 years, and I think that would be the same of most people, no?

Do you guys still buy DVDs?

Are you more careful about what you buy or how much you spend on DVDs in general, if you'd been occasionally impulsive in the past?

Nowadays I mostly buy extra cheap offers of movies I haven't seen yet (recently Dark Shadows and the Planet of the Apes remake for 5€ each) and than let them collect dust until I'm really bored and there's absolutely nothing on TV that remotely interests me. Only rarely I buy movies that I can't wait to see/am extremely curious about/have littly hope to ever catch on TV for regular prices. (Eyeing The Raid at the moment, maybe next month when fresh money starts pouring in)

Over the past 2-3 years I've moved away from buying DVDs, and focused on buying Blu-Rays. Yes, I've double dipped on most of my BluRays. I haven't been motivated to buy any NEW movies (ones that have been on the big screen in the past X number of years). But I have purchased a few Criterion BluRays of older movies I've never seen (Days Of Heaven, Gomorrah, Paths of Glory for example). And to be honest, I haven't even watched 70% of what I have bought over that time.

So my DVD collection, while relatively large (maybe 200?) is stagnant, and my BluRay collection, while relatively small (20?), is just sitting on my shelf looking pretty.

i generally only buy movies that i know i'm going to watch several times (like Ninja III: The Domination, for example), which limits my movie-buying extensively. if i've never seen a movie before, or i know i'm only going to want to see it once, i'll get it from netflix. accordingly, most of my BR purchases have been rebuys of DVDs i already have/had, since most of the movies i watch repeatedly i already had on DVD.

that said, i was in best buy yesterday to buy the 3D Avatar BR (an exception to my policy above, but i will probably rewatch again, at least in 2D, and to show the 3D to anyone who asks to see it) and they had a ton of $10 BR's on sale. some damn good ones too, like the Alien movies and Ghostbusters and a bunch of cool shit. it took a lot to hold back from picking some up, but i reminded myself of the number of unwatched BRs i still have at home, and that helped. i made a deal that i wouldn't buy any impulse purchases of BRs until i watch the ones i've already got.

I DO in fact do research for my bluray purchases, from the fine gentlemen over at blu-ray.com. This guy(s) goes into great detail about the quality of sound and video and extras. I highly recommend. And to go a little further on with this tangent, they have a super cool app that allows you to scan the UPC of your collection, and then it complies you library in a neat app view (complete with pictures etc).
