I've prefered to keep my remastered editions over the "new" originals. I was disgusted at the 2 channel stereo etc

And on the box it said "fullscreen" I'm sure I read it wrong but whats the point in star wars is 2 channel? fuck it! fuck Lucas and I now accept the remastered ones as the best I'll ever get... sadly! :-)

Just bought, and watched The Good, The Bad And The Ugly: Special Edition this weekend. Waited until the middle of the night while the kids were asleep and watched it until four in the morning. Fantastic.

BEOWULF and Grendel -- a reimaging of the oldest recorded campfire story of brave Geats coming to the rescue of Danes decimated by a murderous troll.

Stars Gerard Butler (Beowulf), Stellan Skarsgard (Hrothgar) and Sarah Polley as a witch.

Entertaining and not at all what you expect. :?

I bought Labyrinth for the odd price of £2.89 in Tesco today. Hopefully it's as good & freakish as I remember, but for that price it doesn't matter too much.

Is that the one where the guy goes to the house and scratches off the paint in the house? If not, it still has that awesome opening and creepy kids music box.

EDIT: Or am I getting confused with "Deep Red"?

Could be Deep Red...it's been awhile since I had my Argento Film Marathon Weekend - but the plaster/paint peeling from the walls - to reveal the kid's picture/drawing or whatever - was - for a fact - in Deep Red (Profundo Russo...I like how that rolls off the tongue...moreso than Kirk even...)...

Yeah, it even rolls off the tongue better than Porco Rosso, although Porco Rosso kinda gets propelled out along with a little spittel. Perhaps you could ask Kirk to utter it gently to you whilst he fellates you.

Damn.
Here in Cuckooland the only option was to head to Ebay, which I did.
I've heard much about this, and since I love Argento's work it seemed like a must have.

Isn't Unsane just Tenebrae, edited for a watered down rating in the states?

I haven't bought anything very recently. Money has been extremely tight for the last several months. The most recent thing I bought was the 2 disc, V For Vendeta.

My local Ameboa store has the collectors edition of Bava's Lisa and The Devil, but I can't afford to use the AM right now.

My flatmate got all in a tizzy about MI:3 and traded in some stuff for it yesterday. He watched it last night after a night out and woke up this morning to tell us how shit it was... ironically, he'd traded in some poor films to get it!

I bought The City Of Lost Children pal Special Ed. from Fopp for £5. I'd gone in for Wild At Heart... and... er... forgot...

See this is why Fopp is grand. While I was there last time, I picked up some super-duper edition of Strangelove for 8 pounds, and Dead Man's Shoes for 7, via John-Locke's recommendation.

BUT IT SUCKS UP YOUR MONEY!

The Susumu Yokota album I picked up there though is an example of how, when stuff is cheap, you're willing to risk things for possible brilliance. And it is brilliant.

Still forgot Wild At Heart, which is WHY I went in there in the first place... dammit!

Again, I go into London for Wild At Heart, I come back with something else.

This time, Event Horizon Special Edition with the acesly stupid plastic cover that looks like the Event Horizon. WHY? WHHHYYY??

I've no idea why I like this movie. Honestly, some of the lines are clunkier than a generation 1 Transformer, but the Orbital/Kamen soundtrack and incredible production design and sets really turn me on. It doesn't even scare me. Just the feeling that the design evokes is quite powerful, even if the sfx have really aged badly.

Still, Andersons best movie to day. Why? He tries to sustain tension. He didn't write it. The guys needs tieing down if he's gonna make movies, not given free reign. Personally I think he could make another GOOD film - and I class EH as "good" not "great" - if the next studio took his pen away from him.

it's got:

Great designs (The Event Horizon is a BADASS ship!)

Some creepy evil latin speak

Some nice gore

Sam Niell!

And the story drips cheese

It's a good 'un, but you can see the Paul Anderson template in there building up. He's stuck to it since this movie, no wonder his movies hold very few suprises... that and they're often pants...

The guy needs to experiment!

Like with the lament configuration. I got the Hellraiser DVD for £3.99 from Blockbuster, with all special features intact! Damn that film holds up well... why the crap are the remaking it? It's insane!

The physical effects, bar the stoopid monster creature that chases her down a corridor, are brilliant. Particularly the transformation. I'd rate it higher than an of Freddy's outings, even New Nightmare...

I just bought The Warriors Directors Cut for £4.99 and Romance & Cigarettes for £9.99 at Virgin.

I've not heard great things about the new cut of Warriors but at that price it's hard to say no, plus I love a bit of old school Walter Hill.

I finally got the Kingdom of Heaven director's cut. And yup, it's as good as everyone said. Only thing though, since the rest of the film got better, it makes me hate the last half hour even more. All the preachy, Jerusalem is everything and nothing, for everyone and no one. Suddenly, Orlando Bloom, who has defined his character as a man of action rather than words, finds it necessary to deliver not 1, but 2 "stirring" speeches. And frankly, he's a better actor when he's not talking.

Other than that, however, I quit liked it.
