I buy too many DVDs sometimes (if only money grew on trees ;)), so I usually have to stop and think what the last one was. But the last I got was Kelly's Heroes. Still a few Eastwood movies to fill in.

Most recent purchases: Heat: Two Disc Special Edition, Insomnia: Criterion Edition, Thief: Director's Edition

I've put myself on a DVD buying freeze until the end of April. Unless I see a Clint movie that I don't already own.

Last week I bought White Hunter Black Heart and Mystic River 2-disc edition + I got In The Line of Fire Collector's Edition for my birthday  O0

But the very last one I purchased was For a Few Dollars More Collector's Edition (region 2 DVD) ... I couldn't wait for the region 1 to be released  ^-^
I ordered it this morning on Amazon (released tomorrow Feb. 28th (http://www.discodelic.netfirms.com/happy-dancingsmilie2.gif))

  The last DVD was "Married...With Children" season 3.  The last few DVD movies I bought were over the Net, "White Heat" with James Cagney and "Full Body Massage" with Mimi Rogers and lucky bastard Bryan Brown.

Howard Hawks' Red River.  Decided to get a bit of a western collection going, besides my Clint westerns.

Today I was in Borders bookshop and saw so many lovely dvds... :-\  not allowed any until I've earned them.  But I've got my eye on the set of the series Alistair Cooke's America.  8)

That DVD buying freeze sounds like a good idea.

I thought about getting Heat. I still have it on VHS, which I got a very long time ago but I haven't watched it recently and I'd rather watch it again before I decide to get it on DVD. I've seen Thief before too. Good movie. (http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/Themes/yabbse/images/post/thumbup.gif)

Just lately I have only been buying Clint movies and the last DVD I got a couple of weeks ago was Joe Kidd. I have never seen it so now is my chance.   The one before that was Two Mules for Sister Sarah.  I am trying to get as many DVD 's of Clint as possible but so many are only on region1 or not available at all. :(

Post by: dane with no name on February 28, 2005, 04:18:40 PM
Last week i bought :

1. Life of brian

2. the meaning of life
(with these two, my must-have list for monty python movies is now complete  ;D )

3. Crimson rivers 2
(not as good as the first, but i did find out Christopher Lee speaks french wery good.)


The last DVDs i bought was bought today and were :

1. Sky captain an the world of tomorrow
(only bad thing about this one is that gwynneth paltrow isnt stomped to death by the giant robots in the beginning...)

2. Dodgeball
I´d never thought that i´d have to say this, but David Hasselhoff is actually quite funny...  ;) )

3. Nikita
 (decided it was finally time to retire my old VHS tape)

4. Crying freeman
(Same goes for this one)

5. Glory
(still an incredible movie after all these years)

6. Kongekabale (danish movie about a young new reporter who gets a tip about a political scandal planted by a primeministercandidate´s enemies in the days up to the election. It´s avaiable with english subtitles, so do check it out, especially since a political scandal in denmark in just about the same manner is rolling currently (no deaths or suicides involved though)

And i got (NOT BOUGHT!!!i cannot stress this enough) Resident evil 2 : apocalypse...
Me and two maters opted for a zombiemovie night, so we saw Dawn of the dead (original) Shaun of the dead and Resident evil 2. Jørgen, one of my mates had just bought it, and after we saw it, he didnt want it back home with him for some mysterious reason  :D (read Brendans rating of it if you cant understand why  ;)) so now i´m stuck with it, though using it to put hot mugs on, or scraping the cage of my ferrets with it has crossed my mind...

I think it looked more of an prequel to Grumpy Old Men  ;D

Burton was especially sad looking.Moore and Harris was so and so but the rest of the mercanaries looked pretty ripe to me.

It was like geriatrics in the Africa  ;D

If I remember correctly The Wild Geese II sucked too  ???

 8) Excellent!  I want to see that.  It was going to have a brief new run in the cinemas, but I think I've missed that. :(  I heard this reviewed on BBC Radio 4 and it sounds good.  I never saw the first, apparently butchered, release, but this version sounds good.

Eastwood biographer Richard Schickel was a producer of the restored version, which uses some of the 70,000 feet of old film found in Kansas.

I would like to see the restored cut of The Big Red One. I've always liked the movie. It's one of my favorites with Lee Marvin, but I never realized it was cut down so badly. Wasn't it originally released as a PG rated movie?
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Holden Pike on May 08, 2005, 09:17:07 PM
The reconstructed The Big Red One is definitely a better film than the old Studio cut. The extra forty-plus minutes of footage adds so much depth as well as more of the surreal Hell of battle to Fuller's last great work. And the DVD is terrific, with a good commentary by Richard Schickel (who produced and supervised the rebirthing project) as well as an excellent documentary, including interviews with the cast - I could have listened to three hours of those actors recounting anecdotes about Sam and Lee Marvin.

The Criterion Collection edition of F for Fake[/font][/color] (1973 - Orson Welles)
The last bit of genius Orson Welles finished, this inventively fun and deceptive docu/mockumentary about forgery and narrative truth. Anyone who enjoyed Werner Herzog and Incident at Loch Ness last year should rush right out and find Fo for Fake. Very good 2-disc package too, with an audio commentary track with Oja Kodar, an 88-minute piece about all of Welles' unfinished projects, and a documentary about art forger Elmyr de Hory among other extras.

I just bought.....(http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B0000A5BTL.02.THUMBZZZ)


Field of Dreams.  Just because I love it.  Not so much as to who is in it but the story.

Nice one Lin, I almost bought that the other day!  I love James Earl Jones. O0  Cheesy film but still good, and has some cool bits that take it a cut above standard cheese fair.  I like the fact that Doc Graham was a real guy.  And getting Lancaster to play him was great.  I also like the fact that the Iowa farmers went to Berkeley and have a quirkiness about them.  I thought the set design was good in their house, and in Terence Mann's flat.

The DVD has a nice range of special features on it.  I like the real newspaper clippings about Doc Graham.  I was struck by how different the director's style was to Eastwood's.  He was a self-confessed bundle of nerves.  Cool of him to admit it though.

Funny how some pleasing "coincidences" happened during the filming - what the crew called "F. O. D. moments".  The best one is that when they were filming on location near a war memorial, one of the crew turned around to see that one of the names on the small memorial was John Kinsella. 8)

There are a number of things from this movie and the filming of it that give me goosebumps.  I saw it on the morning I left from a holiday in the States in 1989.  My penfriend took me to see it as we were far too early for the flight from Milwaukee to Chicago and I 'took' it all the way home.  I just couldn't get it out of my mind.

The restored cut of Sam Fuller's The Big Red One[/font][/color] (1980).

  This would have been worth the buy even just for the documentary by itself.  The Lee Marvin stories are all interesting and a few hilarious, especially as told by Carradine.  Fuller's daughter sure is chip off the old block:  Scratchy-voiced and chompin' on a big stogie.

  Good stuff, and thanks for bringing this restored version to my attention Holden.  8)

I have all Clint's movies too apart from the walk on part old ones and Bird and Breezy .  I can't find Bird on region 2 and I can't find Breezy on anything DVD or VHS.   I got the soundtrack from Bird on a cassette and I really want the movie now as I am a great jazz fan.

I will have Million Dollar Baby as soon as it hits the stores.  I decided against buying it from Amazon until I see what you get with it. As there are three versions in region 1 I want to see how many we get in R2  I bet it is only one. :'(

I watched "The Job" when it was on TV and loved every second of it. I was more then a little ticked when ABC cancelled it... TWICE! I like "Rescue Me" a lot as it's almost what "The Job" should've/could've been had it been given a chance or was on much edgier network. I've liked Denis Leary for a long time so I'll almost watch anything he's in.

Just a reminder of some things to keep an eye out for in a couple weeks...


(http://www.thedigitalbits.com/articles/upcomingdvdart/0705/filmnoirclassiccollectionvol2dvd.jpg) (http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/thumbnail/55776.jpg) (http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/thumbnail/55900.jpg) (http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/thumbnail/55774.jpg) (http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/thumbnail/55775.jpg) (http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/thumbnail/55778.jpg)

On July 5th a second Film Noir boxed set collection form Warner Bros. hits the streets. The five titles included are Crossfire (1947), the original Narrow Margin (1952), Born to Kill (1947), Clash by Night (1952) and Dillinger (1945). Each disc is also available individually. Not the same kind of all-time solid gold greats as the first collection (The Asphalt Jungle, Out of the Past, The Set-Up, Gun Crazy and Murder, My Sweet), but a good group, and there are some fairly obscure and long out-of-print on VHS titles there. The entire box retails for only $49.95 or about $10 per DVD, but as always you can usually find it much cheaper on-line, more like 30% off and only $7 per title. If you buy them as singles, they retail for $19.95 each.

(http://www.moderntimes.com/palace/noir_image/crossfire.jpg)

All those flicks are good and certainly worth seeing if not owning, but for my money the one absolute must-have is Dmytryk’s Crossfire. A great movie, extremely well acted, with something to say about the darkness lurking beneath the seeming sunny complacency of late '40s America. It’s the story of a murder fueled by anti-Semitism, revolving around some emotionally battle-scarred WWII veterans. Bob Mitchum, Gloria Grahame, Robert Young and Sam Levene are all great, but once again it's Robert Ryan who really walks away with the picture. View this one as a double feature with Wyler's fantastic The Best Years of Our Lives sometime to see two takes on veterans having trouble adjusting to post-war life.




(http://www.dvdplanet.com/productimages/front/55782.jpg)

Also coming on the 5th of July is Point Blank (1967), the great hardboiled neo-Noir directed by John Boorman (Deliverance). It stars Lee Marvin in one of his most iconic roles as the quiet and deadly Walker, a man double-crossed by his partner and wife. Left for dead, he comes back to get revenge on the partner and the criminal organization he bought his way into when he screwed Walker on their deal. But he doesn’t attack with shouting and machineguns and bombs, rather he is like a metronome, calmly dispatching everybody in his way level after level up the ladder, all the while claiming he only wants the money he's due, ninety-three grand, which is chicken feed to an operation of that size. If this all sounds familiar to some of you it’s because the same story was remade as Payback (1999) with Mel Gibson. That’s a respectable remake (though Gibson is a little too winking and cute and not even close to the mental badass that Marvin was, plus I wonder how dark the ending was before Mel took it away from the director to do re-shoots and a major new edit), but the original is superior. Amazing supporting cast, including John Vernon, Angie Dickenson, Carroll O’Connor, Keenan Wynn and James B. Sikking.

The special features include the vintage WB featurettes, but more importantly an audio commentary track with Boorman being interviewed by Steven Soderbergh as they watch the movie together.

Nope  :-[ ;D

I've been waiting for a collectors edition -loaded with extras- to come out ever since the movie was released  ;D
But it never came out, so yesterday I found this DVD in a store and bought it. Got it for $10.

I love this movie -pretty obvious I think  ;D ;)

BTW, did you get all of those at once? :o :D
:-[ Yep, all at once -yesterday  :o :o :D except for The Grapes Of Wrath. This one I bought on Amazon.

They were very cheap for special editions, that's why I bought them.

And besides being a good transfer of a terrific flick, the DVD also has an audio commentary track with Steven Soderbergh and John Boorman watching the movie together. At least the R1 disc does, don't know about the rest of the world.

Post by: Sylvie on July 23, 2005, 10:47:53 AM
Hi ! Lin ! :)

I like "Sleepy Hollow", sometimes it's scaring ... just a little ! ;D
Very well realized, the story is fantastic, and Burton made a great adaptation of this legend.
Johnny Depp is very good in the part of Ichabod Crane, new-yorker policeman in charge of the investigation.
I've always liked this actor, and his collaboration with Burton has always been interesting, and famous, thinking of "Edward's scissorhands" (is it the good title of french "Edward aux mains d'argent" ? :-\), or "Ed Wood" ; but (to me !) , not as so good in "Charly and the chocolate factory".
Well "Sleepy Hollow" ... is to be recommended ! :)
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Chessie on July 23, 2005, 11:13:08 AM
Sleepy Hollow is really good, I like it alot.  Very creepy and dark though.  But that's kind of to be expected cause it's Burton and Johnny Depp.

My latests DVDs are Rocky II,Kill Bill Vol.II,Highlander,10  To Midnight,Dirty Dozen,A Fistful Of Dynamite and Frank Sinatra`s A Man And His Music.

Well I got to say that I was a bit dissappointed with Leone`s Fistfull Of Dynamite  :( I think Rod Steiger once again over played his part.Coburn was good though.

Bronson`s 10 To midnight was crap.I bought it because it was so cheap and I did not rember of seeing it before.

But the rest of those DVDs were good.4 out of 6...that`s not too bad and in the future I probably start to like Sergio Leone`s film as well.

Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Brendan on August 30, 2005, 03:37:42 PM
I was being sarcastic but that's still exspensive (looking at it from a Canadian dollars point of view). €66 is about $140 Cdn. That's WAY WAY overpriced. Some of the stores where I live dropped the price as well.... to $99.99. Oh yeah! That's one hell of a price drop! They went from $120 to 99.99. Yippie! A whole twenty bucks! But that was only for the Original Series and The Next Generation. They still have Deep Space Nine and the craptacular Voyager for $170. I can't believe Paramount can get away with a SRP like that. It's ridiculous. A friend of mine bought the entire series of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" for about $180. All seven seasons for $180. That's one season of TOS or TNG. It's ridiculous. And you can't even get them cheap on eBay either. Some used sets still go for $70 or $90. that's without shipping. Ridiculous! But enough of my mini-rant.  :)

Yup, definitely one of the two or three best ghost stories ever brought to the big screen, this one an adaptation of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw. Great flick, finally available on R1 DVD.

BTW, the main special feature on the new SE of The Sting is a 56-minute new retrospective documentary, with interviews of Newman, Redford, Charles Durning, Ray Walston, Eileen Brenan, Dimitra Arliss and composer Marvin Hamlisch. Too bad it was produced a couple years late for George Roy Hill to take part in it.

It's very good, covering Dylan's rise in the early '60s, the music, the influences, the impact and the era up to much of the audience turning on him when he went "electric" in '66. Very thorough with great interviews, including Bob himself.

"No Direction Home" airs in the States next week on PBS.

I think that he english title is : " The Emperor's  journey", but I'm not sure ...

The title here is March of the Penguins, which in the States has become a surprise sensation taking in about $75-million so far at the box office, making it the second-highest grossing documentary of all time. Also what you're missing in the U.S. version is Morgan Freeman does the narration.


Here's a funny piece that appeared in the humor rag The Onion not too long ago, after the big budgeted The Island tanked while March of the Penguins continued to attract huge crowds and repeat business...

Quote from: TheOnion.com
What Has Our Society Come To When March Of The Penguins Is The Blockbuster Hit Of The Summer?[/font]

By Michael Bay, director of The Island

(http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:yTgno3FxCKgJ:www.nndb.com/people/965/000025890/michaelbay01.jpg)

I've been a major Hollywood director for a long time, and I thought I'd seen it all. But I can't help wondering what's happening to the entertainment industry—indeed, to our entire society. Where are our standards? Our values? For fu*k's sake—our cultural priorities? I simply cannot accept that March Of The Penguins is the big summer hit everybody's talking about. Hello?

It used to be that a summer blockbuster had to have brutal violence, sexy women, breathtaking action sequences, adrenaline-pumping high-speed chases—at a bare minimum, some explosions. But sitting through that penguin movie, I couldn't believe my eyes. Where were the big set pieces? Hell, this movie didn't even have sets! Has anyone ever heard of production values? It's one of the most vital aspects of the filmmaking art, and you don't get it by just showing up on an iceberg and filming whatever happens to be in front of you. Frankly, for real icebergs, they looked fake. This film is an insult to the great men and women who spend countless hours in front of computers creating incredibly realistic CGI icebergs.

Does no one out there care about these things anymore but me? Am I a lone voice of sanity crying out in a universe gone mad?

(http://www.theonion.com/images/451/opinion555.jpg)(http://masseynews.massey.ac.nz/2004/Massey_News/feb/feb23/images/penguin_Adelie.jpg)

What kind of a world do we live in when a futuristic techno-thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson as escaped clones on levitating jet bikes doesn't outgross the sh!t out of a glorified Discovery Channel rerun? Don't people realize how much money I spent? How many people it took to bring that vision to the screen? Do people realize how many rewrites and punch-ups we went through? I paid my writers millions of dollars, and they were some of the best in the biz. You know who wrote their script? A bunch of birds.

Where was the villain? A story's not going to keep an audience on the edge of their seats without a strong opposition. Where was the second-act turning point? You've gotta have that moment when the hero's at the end of his rope and the bad guy looks like he's going to win it all. And where was the love story? Stars have to have real chemistry that smolders on the screen to make a summer blockbuster one to remember. Okay, the penguin movie had mating cycles, but that's not love. Is it all about sex to these animals?

Speaking of which, I think we can all agree that the penguins in this film gave some pretty wooden performances. In many scenes, it was impossible to tell them apart. Maybe if they'd moved the camera once in a while, I could have gotten more emotionally invested in what was going on. For Christ's sake, there was not a single crane shot in the whole movie!

I remember a day when the public appreciated fine cinema. In that lost age, it made sense that my important historical drama Pearl Harbor had a fighting chance for at least a special-effects Oscar. Best sound, no question. But now, in this crazy upside-down, topsy-turvy world, I hear that—guess what?—the only summer movie getting any Oscar buzz is a static, near-silent documentary about waddling, flightless birds!

These days, I guess old-fashioned values like "megawattage," "high-octane thrill rides," and "explosions" just don't matter anymore. Well, I call that a sad day for American moviemaking.

I'm busy in pre-production planning my next big spectacle (which no one will see because they'll be off watching a 10-hour documentary on park squirrels, no doubt). But if you are in the San Diego area, do me this favor: Go to Sea World, walk into the emperor-penguin exhibit, and punch one those fu*kers right in the face. Tell 'em Michael Bay sent ya.


http://www.theonion.com/opinion/index.php?issue=4133 (http://www.theonion.com/opinion/index.php?issue=4133)

Michael Bay didn't write that of course, it's a joke. But it's so dAmn funny because you can imagine him going off on such a rant. Or at least the studio executives who greenlit The Island.

I was debating buying the Anthology but when I saw that it was cheaper to buy it rather than buy the Batman and Batman Returns SE's seperately, I decided to go for it. I was also debating whether or not to get Batman Forever as I didn't enitrely hate that movie. I just wish the new Forever SE was the directors cut that was rumoured. Too bad it isn't. I also wish the cover art for the new SE's was the Region 2 cover art (which can be seen here (http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?r=0&s=1&c=7460&n=1&k=batman&burl=r%3D0%26g%3Dinfo%26s%3D1%26k%3Dbatman%26x%3D0%26y%3D0)). Those covers are alot better then the "floating heads" ones we get in Region 1.

Quote
Mayor: Now Drebin, I don't want any trouble like you had on the South Side like last year, that's my policy.

Frank: Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.

Mayor: That was a Shakesphere In The Park Production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed five actors! Good ones!

Some great films there mary mary....

I don't think I've ever seen Children Of The Dammed.


Always loved those Lewton films.

Hi Gant,
Village of the damned is by far the weaker film, but enjoyable enough, the first film is very hard to beat.

As for Val Lewton possibly the most atmospheric films ever made, just love them.

I had a review copy of this arrive this morning
(http://eur.i1.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/xp/mrib/20051025/21/2665960632.gif)
I'm sure there's a good film in there some where ??? ???

As for The Descent, I can't remember the last time I actually jumped so much watching a movie, watching it in a pitch black room is an absolute must! ;D

I remember seeing Bedlam many years ago and finding it a little unsettling..
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: mary mary on November 11, 2005, 05:22:48 PM
The Wonderful Bedlam, and all based on fact of course! It's probably one of my 2 favourites from that collection, I also love the feel of dread surrounding Isle of the Dead. I think Val Lewton was desperately underrated, and only now beginning to receive the true recognition he fully deserved. As you said Gant, unsettling, which of course results in the films impression firmly in-bedded in the mind, long after the event, very clever films. I remember seeing Cat People as a kid, and that scene in the deserted indoor swimming pool..
Boy, really scary stuff.

Yeah.. Cat People's a classic... I remember enjoying the sequel also.. (can't remember the title)


I think The Leopard mans about the only Lewton film I havn't seen..

Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: mary mary on November 11, 2005, 06:15:41 PM
Curse of the Cat People, what a beautiful ghostly movie that is, and saw the debut of the late great Robert Wise as director, who took over after the original director was sacked for taking too long, anything over 18 days was considered too long! That's what I like about these movies, B movies, with A grade style, making use of the wonderful RKO sets and so on. They certainly looked like top budgeted movies, really remarkable.

The Leopard man is an OK movie, but I'd say you've seen the cream of the crop.

Yes I've watched Night Creatures aka. Captain Clegg . Not only is it a forgotten gem but the condition is amazing  .You'd think it was made yesterday .
It's the first time I've seen it since it was shown on the big screen in London a couple of years ago . Yvonne Romain turned up at the showing looking as good as she did then . She must have discovered the fountain of youth .
Enjoy !!

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000AQ69S6.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg)

Cool looking features on the disc. I was really happy to see The Directors episode for Romero is on it too. O0 Anchor Bay released this, and they were also the ones that released The Hills Have Eyes and included the Wes Craven Directors episode on that disc as well. I liked the Craven episode, so I'm looking forward to watching Romero's.

I found out that the Batman Begins: Deluxe Edition that was released a few weeks ago has been re-called due to some licensing issues with the comic book that came with it. Glad I got my copy.  ;) Too bad I've opened it though or it possibly could have been worth some money in the future.
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Matt on December 03, 2005, 03:20:55 PM
I got that Batman Begins, Deluxe Edition DVD last night at a "Yankee Gift Swap" with my neighbors. Everyone had to bring a wrapped DVD, and when it's your turn, you get to pick one. The next person can steal yours, or pick a wrapped one. Once a DVD has been "stolen" three times, it's retired. I got Batman Begins after going through a lot of other movies (everyone kept stealing mine!) I was happy to wind up with it.  :)

The "big" DVD at the party this year was Mr. & Mrs. Smith. There were two of them in the pile, and they both changed hands the maximum amount of times before being retired. I wound up with Million Dollar Baby at one point, but fortunately, someone stole it from me (since I already had it). And The Interpreter went through a few hands too... but isn't that movie pretty bad? I haven't seen it, but thought I heard it was.

I brought The Pianist, and that was a highly desired item too. It's one of my favorite movies.

I wasn't here in the South long before someone, after hearing I came from New Jersey, said, "Damn Yankees!"  I thought I was faced with a Red Sox fan, and told him I was a Yankees fan. But, then got hit with "Not THOSE Yankees. YOU Yankees!" Apparently (as I soon learned) Yankees are Northerners, but DAMN Yankees are Northerners who move to the South.

Then there was the time when I was driving around with a truckload of Tennesseans, who decided the topic for the drive would be how awful the people from Philly are. "The minute you step off the plane, everyone treats you like a dumb hick the minute they hear your accent!" Then followed some profanity that would just get edited by the board software, directed at Philadelphians.

It was only about five minutes later that someone asked where I came from. "Philly," I replied.

"Oh man, I'm sorry 'bout that." (Uncomfortable silence)

"Actually, I'm from right outside Philly... over the Ben Franklin Bridge in Jersey."

"Oh, now that's a nice place!" (Attempted sincerity)

"Yeah! Sure! Good try!"

What's [Prime Cut] about?


(http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:K8A_UhY7loMJ:tedstrong.com/marvin-lee/primecut2.jpg) (http://tedstrong.com/marvin-lee/primecut2.jpg) (http://www.whatdvd.net/images/whatdvd-main/617.gif)

Lee Marvin has starred in some pretty mean flicks, but Prime Cut may be the meanest of 'em all. Marvin is Nick Devlin, a semi-retired button man for the Chicago Mob. He's called back into duty because the Kansas City operation has been defiantly holding out to the tune of $500,000. Various bag men have been sent to collect, but they keep turning up dead - the latest one sent back as sausage links. The megalomaniacal psycho in charge of Kansas City is "Mary Ann", played with glee by Gene Hackman. His right-hand man is his filthy and large dim-witted brother "Weenie", played by Gregory Walcott (Plan 9 from Outer Space, Joe Kidd). Nick knows them all too well, so he heads down to the heartland with a small crew. When they arrive they find Mary Ann's operation is run on a farm, including a literal stable of prostitutes who are kept drugged-up, naked and in pens, then auctioned off. You know things are gonna end bloody, and boy do they ever.

This is prototypical Lee Marvin, the cool and restrained yet efficiently brutal tough guy who doesn't say much, but when he does you'd best listen. Walcott makes a convincing sick-o redneck, and Hackman seems to find genuine joy in portraying the sleezy bad guy (Prime Cut was the first movie released after his Best Actor Oscar win for The French Connection). A nekkid Sissy Spacek bares all her freckles and makes her big screen debut as one of the young girls Nick decides to save from the ranch.

The whole movie is very sleazy and incredibly politically incorrect. You'd never see this movie made today, not in a major Studio with any kind of budget or recognizeable stars anyway. But Prime Cut's strength is that it is unabashedly sleazy, which is refreshing. Michael Ritchie (The Bad News Bears, Fletch) tells the story quickly and efficently, not sparing us from a completely unpleasant tone and attitude. This is true Pulp cinema.

There are a couple terrific action setpieces, including a chase from a thrasher in a wheat field calling to mind Cary Grant's encounter with the cropduster in North by Northwest (ever seen a thrasher eat a Town Car?), and the final assault on the farm where a machine gun-toting Marvin and his men shoot it out with the overall-clad hicks in a huge field of six-foot-tall giant sunflowers, all while an ominous thunderstorm approaches. Really great stuff.

While not quite as good and certainly not as inventive narratively as John Boorman's similarly tough Point Blank (1967), this is Lee fu*kin' Marvin at his iconic hard-boiled best, a too-little seen gem waiting to be discovered. And a warning: if you're not a vegetarian already, this movie may put you off meat for a while and have you enjoying leafy greens & tofu.

Yeah, Holden’s description pretty much sums it up. Marvin was definitely one of a kind. Also enjoy him in Hell in the Pacific, which has a very simple plot, and practically no dialog. Just Marvin vs Mifune. Also, it’s good to see he could redeem himself after Paint Your Wagon…   ;)

A funny story I remember as a kid, watching Marvin as a guest on The Mike Douglas Show (http://www.themikedouglasshow.com/) sometime in the early 70s, he was sharing about an altercation he had in grade school with another classmate. Apparently the other boy said something Lee didn’t like, so Marvin told him if he said that again, “Out you go,” pointing to the window (their class was on the 2nd or 3rd story of the school building). Well the kid said it again, and....out he went. When Douglas asked how the other boy ended up, Marvin said it wasn’t that bad. “It wasn’t like he directly hit the ground – there was a diagonal structure there at the bottom, so he kind of ricocheted off it.”

That stuck with me for some reason….

Good choice, Conan!

I don't know if this qualifies, cuz I didn't actually buy it. Very recently I received this set as a gift from someone: the complete DVD library of The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan. Talk about mind-blowing. I really can't describe this show. Those who have seen it know what I mean. Wow...

I've wanted The Prisoner set for sooo long it hurts.

It's one of those dvd box stes that never seems to come down in price   :(


Quite simply the best tv show ever made, even better than Star Trek and barney Miller  :o

Genius.

And very enjoyable they are too. These are cracking little murder mysteries - faithfully adapted from the short stories - with top notch production values, good guest stars and Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke as the best Holmes and Watson ever. Excellent picture quality on these discs as well. The cover says nothing about the source material but they're obviously new transfers if not from the original negs then certainly something close to them. Anyway, highly recommended to all.  O0

Absolutely.

If you`re into Mötley Crüe`s music then this DVD is a must buy for you.

Their Greatest Hits and Lewd,Crüed And Tattooed DVDs were good but this is absolutely  amazing DVD.Everything is perfect in it...well maybe Tommy Lee`s solo could`ve been little shorter and Sixx`s solo didn`t work in Helsinki and it`s nothing special on this DVd either but those two things are only things that I could count as a minus.

I absolutely love Groundhog Day. O0 And I remember liking Seven a long time ago.

Yup both of them are good film.I just watched the other week Fincher`s Seven again and it still worked beautifully even though I obviously knew the ending.

Seven was one of the earliest moments that I started to think that maybe this Brad Pitt can really act  :)

Anyway I bought these earlier today

mainly because they were so cheap and I do have soft spot for Bronson`s 70`s films.His films have not aged as well as Eastwood`s films from the same era but they are still pretty decent to watch every now and then.

Those Roger Moore films have not aged all that well but the rest of those films are pretty great.

While United Artists did release the film and does hold the copyright, this is the only Pink Panther film that is not controlled by MGM. It is also the only Pink Panther film that has never been released by MGM on Home Video.

Same here the States, tgy. The 5-box set does not include this particular one. Neither does it include 1968's Inspector Clouseau, (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063135/) played by Alan Arkin(!). As explained here (obtained from the Wikipedia site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Panther)):

Quote
All these films have been released by United Artists except for distribution outside the U.S. for 1975's The Return of the Pink Panther. This film is not fully owned by MGM/UA, as UA sold the film rights to British production company ITC Entertainment (although UA does own the copyright as well as the theatrical distribution rights). Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers originally intended to produce a Clouseau television series in 1974, but backers ITC felt a movie would better suit the character. This resulted in Return, which successfully revived the Inspector Clouseau film franchise. The film is now in rights litigation, which explains why it was not included in a 2004 DVD box set containing five of the Sellers films.

Yes, and Steve Martin should have had a long talk with Alan before he agreed to butcher Jacques Clouseau too. I love both Alan Arkin and Steve Martin, but these were losing propositions all the way. Everytime I see the trailer or a promotional clip for the upcoming Panther with Martin I just cringe and feel so embarassed for him. I hope at the very least he and Kevin Kline and Jean Reno are all making buttloads of cash. If you're going to sell your cinematic soul, at least get paid well. Ugh.

Been looking for Wild in the Streets (1968) for a long time. Out on DVD - for awhile it seems (with another feature called Gas-s-s-s), saw this on late-nite TV around 30 years ago, and never seen it since.

(http://www.richnoble.com/wild2.jpg)

Hard to come by I guess. But it really stuck in my mind. One of those films that seems almost too surreal to actually have been made. It’s about a young rebel (Christopher Jones) who gets elected Prez of the U.S. and orders everyone 30 yrs old and up to live in concentration camps. All the prisoners are fed LSD. Here’s (http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/t-z/wildinstreetsas6871.htm) a good description of the movie.

(http://www.richnoble.com/wild1.jpg)

Hal Holbrook’s in this one, as Shelley Winters (who plays Jones’ mother), and a young Richard Pyor, as well as some other recognizable faces. I’ll give a rundown on it after viewing it. My memory tends to fade a bit after 30 years … perhaps I belong in one of those camps. Couldn’t handle the Vitamin A though - done too much o’ that already.  ;)

Well, it's pretty simple. Some of it's explained here, (http://www.geocities.com/wildinthestreets2002/) but after D.C.'s water supply is tainted with LSD, congress votes to make any registered voter eligible to hold federal office. Next thing you know -- Max Frost (Christopher Jones) becomes the next prez of the United States!

Makes perfect sense!  ;)

Max then enters the race for U.S. President. The rough and dirty campaign culminates in Max and his inner circle drugging the water supply of Washington D.C. in order to impair the mental facilities of the U.S. Congress.


How could they tell?  ;)

It DOES take more than a simple Congressional vote to void a Constitutional provision, but I'm sure the movie had some reasonable explanation for that, too.  ;)

one of the main problems i have when i watch the trailer is i feel martin is obvioulsy hamming it up  whereas sellers was a much subtler performance,
i wonder if the scene in the life and death of peter sellers has any truth to it, about how he came to romance britt eckland.
in the movie he went to a clairvoyant who had been paid by the studio to tell him to do another pink panther, the claivoyant told him he saw two initials with gtreat purpose and destiny attached to them B & E meaning Blake Edwards but sellers took it to mean Britt Eckland, i wonder how true that actually is.

Ha ha... no. Future Shop (Canada's Best Buy... though we do have Best Buy's now and they own Future Shop).

I asked if they had the Sam Peckinpah western box set for sale and he just stood there for what seemed like an eternity. Then he said, "ah... well did you check the box sets section?" "Yeah, it's not over there. It's a new rele..." "Well that's where we keep all our box sets so if we had it it would be over there." (Really? Box sets in the box sets section? Who woulda thunk it?!) "Oh.. ok, it's not a problem." Walk down the isle... "I can't believe they don't have it. They're selling the Wild Bunch and Pat Garrett over there separately but they don't have the box set?" Continue to walk... "What the hell... I can't believe.... oh, hey look behind you. Look at what's sitting beside that computer." RIDICULOUS!

Though this is the same store where the employees would rather talk to each other and/or flirt with each other and/or ignore customers completely and/or just not do any actual work.

Red River sure is one of those films when Duke showed that he could really act if he wanted to.

I would say that his performance in Red River would`ve been an oscar worthy...as was his roles in The Searchers,Sands Of Iwo Jima(got a nomination though),She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance and The Shootist.

And ofcourse he did earned the oscar that they gave him from True Grit.

Very underrated actor but he is to blame also.He"walked"through"so many films as himself that those few films where he really showed his acting abilities are easily forgotten.

Saw this as a kid when it was in the theaters here in the States, and the songs and story stuck with me throughout the years. Very haunting for some reason.

Btw Gant and tgy you`re right Marx Bros were(and their films still are)great and without a doubt Duck Soup is their best film.

AB Manhunter is a great movie, i got the region 2 version of that a while back, petersen got me into CSI through watching manhunter on brendans recommendation.

That's pretty much how I started watching CSI as well. That and it was on late at night the one day when I was bored.

Well, for me, it happened the other way around. I started watching CSI, and then I watched Manhunter -on Brendan's recommendation as well. Thanks, btw  ;)
Great movie.

CSI got me hooked on Grissom 8) ... and on William Petersen too. I'd like to see him in his early roles now .... Live And Die In LA was in the mail today. Still waiting for that Manhunter special edition to arrive.

I like the first Sabata, but The Return Of Sabata was a bit weird.. I knew in the first minutes of the movie that this is not a typical movie. And I was right. Didn't like the sequel.  ???

As said I also have watched couple of times Van Damme`s Kickboxer and even though the plot sucks the man sure can kick the sh*t out of everybody very impressive way.

I used to like watch Van Damme and Seagal movies but unfortunatelly their films have been quite awfull lately.

Anyway I´m sorry No,namedfan if offended you.That was not my purpose.

Mary -

I did some research and found that the movies included in the Matt Helm box set are 1.85 to 1 ratio, and modified for widescreen TVs. So yes, it is widescreen.

(http://www.richnoble.com/helm1.jpg)

Also, as of now it's only available in NTSC, R1 coding to the best of my knowledge.

Great films and quite cheap too even though Ride The High Country was the latest special edition version.

Michael Caine`s Harry Palmer is so cool that I need to buy in the near future his other Palmer films The Ipcress File and Billion Dollar Brain.

I got no intrest of these newer Palmer films Bullet to Beijing and Midnight in St. Petersburg.I`ve seen them and they`re not as good as these 60`s films.

That Matt Helm boxset looks cool.I´ve seen only one Helm movie and it was silly but entertaining.So maybe I`ll buy those films in the future too.

Almost forgot I bought this today

Actually the packaging is a bit different than what`s in that picture.Forexample the case is plastic and not a cardboard as usually in The Clint Eastwood Collection DVDs.So my DVD is not part of the CE Collection series.

I´ve not watched it just yet but the cover says 16:9 FF  and it got two sides.An english version on B-side with a 5.1 Dolby Digital sound.

So I guess tgy`s version is correct.

Cheers
              I have the Warren set and only wish he'd been able to make a few more movies . I spoke with him a couple of years ago at either Jimmy Sangster or Wayne Kinseys book launch in London . He seems a really nice guy . Shame the British film industry fell on its knees when Warren and his contempories were doing so well .

Yep it's a great cover Gant, and I agree with you Holden, all DVD's should be required to carry the original film artwork. I've seen some absolutely appalling examples of cheap and poorly produced covers, made on the cheap and just using a photographic image as a quick and easy option.

Looking at Ryan's Daughter is a fine example of how a dvd cover should look.

Looking at Hemlock's Madigan and The Killer Elite (BTW I also have both of these DVD's, and very happy with them) but I also have some original artwork for both of these titles, the UK Killer Elite poster art was just superb, I can't speak for the US artwork, as I don't recall seeing it, but it's obvious that there is great artwork out there that could be put to good use.

Here's the UK artwork I was thinking of:

and here's a more typical example of the Madigan artwork I was thinking of:
(http://thetwilightzone.xs4all.nl/DPG/Thumbs/PosterM/tn_Madigan_3.jpg)

With all this great artwork in existence, it does make you wonder why?
Interesting.

Just got this

Sumptuous 35mm documentaries filmed by the Rank Organisation in the 1960's to be shown as supports (remember them  ;)) to the main feature. Detailing Swinging London in all it's glory.. with Frothy Cofee bars, high rise living,  footage of jazz clubs, Soho, mini skirts  ;) Tower of London etc.. A real priceless document. beautiful quality.

Wow !! mary mary,that`s really cool looking poster of Killer Elite...and much better looking than DVD`s cover.Also that poster of Madigan would`ve been  better looking cover to Madigan DVD than what it is now.

My latests DVDs :

The original Ocean`s Eleven is as cool as a film can be.

Wayne`s and Douglas`s War Wagon was a good,entertaining western as I remembered it to be.

But I´m especially thrilled to have that The Saint`s 14 disc special edition boxset.It contains all the colour episodes,47 of them to be exact  8)

Now I´ll have to get all those black&white episodes  ;D

Also ordered from a local film/DVD-store John Ford`s My Darling Clementine.It should arrive next week.

Hi Hemlock, you have good taste I also have Oceans 11 O0
And thanks for bringing my attention to that super Saint box set, that has just headed to the top of my must have list ;D

BTW talking of artwork for dvd's I have a poster for the Roger Moore Saint film Vendetta for the Saint 1969, which was basically 2 episodes edited together, the poster is quite hard to find these days, but looks very similar to a certain cop's famous pose. ;)

Fight Club (2 Disc SE) - Very good movie. At first I thought it would be a mindless action film because of the fighting, but it tuned out to be a very thought provoking film.

I think I have to watch it one more time to fully appreciate it.

Night and Fog (Criterion Collection) - Documentary about the Holocaust. It includes real footage of the camps as they were, prisoners, and some very disturbing images of corpses - severed heads - cremated bodies... :o

Thanks mary mary.It looks like you got a very good taste as well  ;)

I thought since I´m quite a big Sinatra fan I must own his(and rest of the Rat Pack`s)Ocean Eleven as DVD.

That latest The Saint DVD boxset is really"a must have"to all Roger Moore fans.

Btw it contains that Vendetta For The Saint movie as an original episodes.If I´m not mistaken.Still haven`t had time to watch any of the episodes or eaven read the booklet.

That poster for Vendetta For Saint sure does remind number of Dirty Harry posters and pictures  :)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: The 1932 and 1941 versions. The latter isn't much cop but the former is absolutely brilliant. Rouben Mamoulian's direction is amazingly imaginative and the movie is a treat to watch.

The Power Game: ITV drama from 1965 centering around business dealings in the construction industry. Good scripts and cast (Patrick Wymark, Peter Barkworth, Rosemary Leach) made in a style no longer fashionable. Still very watchable.

I see it's only $6.03 at  Deep Discount DVD (http://search.deepdiscountdvd.com/search?p=Q&ts=custom&w=Paint+Your+Wagon&search.x=0&search.y=0) now, and free shipping. Slightly better price than I paid.  :-\

Not quite so simple .The BBFC felt at the time that the rape scene , which shows a rape victim enjoying the sexual act to some degree , as sending out a dangerous message to would be rapists .
I can see where they were coming from and their hearts were in the right place but sense has finally prevailed and the movie is available now in its uncut form .
Personally I don't care for the film at all although Hoffman turns in his usual sterling performance .

I have yet to see Straw Dogs. I understand that at some point it was banned in the UK. Does anyone know why?

I don't believe Straw Dogs was ever officially banned in the UK. The situation re its home video release was basically that the BBFC, under the late James Ferman, made it clear to the distributor that if it was submitted for classification then it would likely have to be cut. In light of that the distributors never bothered submitting the film for UK release. You could argue that the end result was the same but it was never banned as such. By 2000 Ferman was in a weakened position at the BBFC, a more liberal view was starting to take hold and the message coming out was that Straw Dogs was no longer regarded as problematic. Ferman died the following year and shortly after the movie came out on DVD uncut. The business about the rape scenes was a specific obsession of the BBFC under Jim Ferman. He took a very strict attitude to movies depicting 'women in peril.' As for its cinema showings, Straw Dogs was never cut or banned in the UK to the best of my knowledge. I saw it several times myself, uncut, as part of a double bill back in 1981.

Hello AB :)
IMO I'd say masterpiece is a word that tends to get overused all too easily, but it's certainly a terrific movie, and I think Mann's best work, and without doubt one of Caan's finest performances, if not his best.
(I think I recall reading that Caan considers it his finest performance).
But I think the music hasn't helped it, which tends to date it too some degree.

It was retitled Violent Streets for the UK release. I was not keen on this title however I preferred the UK poster.

James Belushi is also great in an early role.
I have always liked the score and feel that is adds tension to some scenes and the slower theme at the films close also works well.
Overlooked at the time and still not seen by enough people.

Post by: dane with no name on May 30, 2006, 04:12:18 PM
I´ve been going all tv-series buying lately and have bought :

Simpsons season 7 :. Besides the end of the two-parter with the shooting of mister Burns. This season is to my mind one of the better ones.

Firefly : The sci fi/western tv series that the movie Serenity is a prelude to, and while you can certainly see that it is Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel) that´s done this, i must admit that this whole single season box has opened my eyes to why so many fans adore it. Captain Reynolds may not be Han Solo, but he´s pretty damn close. Even though i´m not about to trade in my phaser, imperial guards helmet or my facehugger cuddley sleepy toy for a browncoat  :D this serie does have some qualities that i havent seen in any movie that begins with STAR, or acidbleeding creatures.It isnt exactly great acting all the way, but it has its moments.

I, Claudius :  What is great acting though is THE ENTIRE ENSAMBLE  of this old BBC tv serie. Sadly the shooting is just about as bad as it gets. It feels like they just put the camera up at a stage, and just hit the recording button, but look at the british ensamble of top british performers they´ve got. Derek Jacobi plays the role of Claudius, a apparently dimwitted child (all a facade to hide a keen mind in the treacerous old rome) John Hurt playing the mad emperor Caligula, a caesar so twisted that he madde hitler look like a nun is the two main characters that stand out, but Brian Blessed, Margaret Tyzack, Patrick Stevard, George Baker, John Rhys Davies, and Sheilæa White, and a lot more, delivers top acting that i dont think excists in any other tv-serie. Holden once made a thread about the top 100 movies you should watch before you die... Well, true belivers, add this one to your list. I still sit awed in the presence of gods.

Deadwood Season 2 :   While Timothy Olyphant (Bullock, deadwoods sheriff) or Ian McShane (Swearengen, deadwoods "godfather") arent gods compared to the above mentioned crew, Deadwood season 2 hasnt lost any of the edge the first season had. There´s more character development, more great catchphrases, and plenty of conspiracy. I thought that Ian McShane had reached his height of acting in the first season, but i have never been more wrong. Deadwood episode 2 is more gritty, in-your-face, and just plain nasty than anything i´ve seen lately.

Hi Dane,

You need to remember just how big TV cameras were back then and how small the studios at the BBC are.

In terms of post production it really is from another time. It is also worth noting that when the series was made our attention span was much better and the pacing of Television was where you could breathe. Personally I don't think any kind of fast moving or flashy shooting would have made it any better. As you correctly pointed out it is the acting and the staging that makes it the classic it is.


Philo .
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: dane with no name on May 31, 2006, 06:59:15 AM
Hi Philo.
I agree on every thing that you wrote, so i´ll specify my elaborate on my points, to get them better formulated.

I am aware of the limited technological equipment (compared to our time) BBC had at that time, but there are a few examples where the pacing and nearshots of the camera do show that BBC had some "technical feeling" with the story. The haunting deathscene of a poisoned (Brian Blessed) emperor Augustus, the glittering madness in the eyes of (john hurt) Caligula, when he slaughters his sister, in order to eat hers/his unborn child are such examples.  The slow pacing and long uncut shots capture the classic grandeur/decay  of Rome and works pretty well, but it´s the average shots where i feel that the camera would work better "up, close, and personal", to really WOW the audience with  the great acting of some of England's greatest actors.

I don't want fast/flashy shooting, bullittime  ;), or 20 cutsscenes a minute. That would completely ruin it, but seeing as BBC really broke down some barriers at that time (all that partial nudity, sexual references,  e.t.c.in a family prime time TV serie :o) i think that going that extra mile, and getting some better shots would do the serie and the great actors more credit.

I agree totally with you on the whole attention span issue, now a days many TV series is crammed with all sorts of superficial shots and technical crap to hide a mediocre story (slo-mo shots of beautiful girls running down the beach in Baywatch is one such example ;) ) but the shots in I Claudius still gives me the feeling that i´m looking at a theatre play, and (even though i don't mind theatre) to loose that feeling would to my mind really given it an extra edge. Theatre and TV-series is after all two different mediums.  ;)

Sometimes it is difficult to shake off the theatre origins. I have seen many films based on stage productions and although with a large enough budget they try to expand the idea, the core of it still retains the play off of characters that would have made it memorable on stage.

Thinking of ordering this. It seems to be highly rated going by the reviews. Anyone seen it?

Philo, I've now watched The Hulk DVD. Thought the pilot stood up reasonably well. Married was weaker than I remembered - but still some good bits in it. Great commentaries though.

Can I add two more things to this that drive me up the wall where current UK telly is concerned - one is shakycam work in drama. By now it's lost whatever dramatic impact it might have had for me through sheer overuse. I find myself pining for the pleasures of a well composed static composition - one where the actors do the moving within frame & camera movement is minimal & unobtrusive. The other thing is the grading. Why is it that practically every drama on the air now look like it was shot somewhere other than planet Earth? Colours are washed out, everything looks self-consciously arty, shades of grey or blue or something ... god I can't tell you how distracting it is. Why do they insist on doing this? Or is it that there's only one drama grader in London & every show has to go through him? I haven't seen I, Claudius yet - tightwad that I am I keep waiting for the price to come down - but am so thankful it was made before any of these tricks came into fashion.

Grizzled,

You and I would get along well. I can't disagree with anything you have said.
Although I work in Television I find myself watching hardly anything because of all of the comments you refer to.

I am sick of everything looking dull and orange / brown. Everything is graded in the highlights with the main body of the image down in the basement.

I can't imagine how things leave Burbank etc looking like that but I view a lot of American films and series and it is rare that there is one that looks really good. In fact last week I quality checked a John Wayne western in HD and that was top notch. That had been restored in Germany !!

  Haha  8)  Its As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me.  I couldn't find a web-site that would allow me to link an English DVD cover...

  Its a really good flick, if you ignore the cheesy over-done music score.  Set against the background of the end of WWII and shortly after, the movie is about a German soldier escaping from a Russian POW camp in Siberia.  Its based on a true story.

I too like Cagney and I love this one as he sings and dances.   I did buy it sometime ago, lent it to a friend?? who returned it scratched and bent.  Was it used as a coffee coaster?  So I have replaced it at a good price from Amazon.

myseld and my friend bought the whole collection grizzled, it's a real treat if you're buying anymore i'd recommen Sons of the Dessert number 13 and of course Way out West Number 3, i can honestly say last christmas we popped Way out West into the dvd after tea and despite it being 70 years old, not a person in the room wasn't crying with laughter, amazing comedy. just goes to show you don't need big bucks and cgi to entertain (in fact your entire order puts modern hollywood blockbusters to shame O0)

Well I wouldn't have picked it up except that they packaged the two together as a promo for the release of the movie. So i paid about $50 for the two of them. Plus I figured I'd need it to help build my Mann collection.  8)

Apparently this season isn't released in the states for another few months,which I find puzzling. ???

Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Agent on August 09, 2006, 07:45:22 AM
I don't know what the 25th ed has, but this one has 2 discs. First disc has the main feature plus some deleted scenes and outtakes. 2nd disc has a good interviews with  Benchley, Spielberg, Scheider, Dreyfuss, Zanuck & Brown, etc. - I think it was over 2 hours long, but quite interesting. Also has a British documentary made during the filming of Jaws, but haven't watched that yet. 
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?

BTW, Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws, died earlier this year from a lung disease. This (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Benchley) pic from the Wiki site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Benchley) was a capture taken directly from the 1995 interview on the DVD set. This shot (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4707576.stm) included in this BBC article about his death was taken shortly before he expired, I presume. Amazing how he had aged in 10 short years. Most likely from the pulmonary fibrosis.

My favorite part of the show is when they would introduce the guest star during the credits, and then immediately kill off their character.  I was pretty young when the show came out, but I still enjoyed it.

So when Paramount started releaseing Star Trek on DVD years ago I was happy as can be. Until I saw the prices. $170 for one season?! HA! Years went by and everytime I went into Best Buy, Walmart or Future Shop the Star Trek DVD's would stare me in the face. I'd always.... ALWAYS check the prices to see if just maybe, MAYBE they came down. Nothing.

This past July I was up late surfing through eBays vast auctions. I came across Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Complete Series for a hefty price BUT once broken down it was a helluva lot cheaper then buying it in store. Soon enough I did the same with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I felt like crap after buying both but I realized that it had to be done.

Now today, September 25, 2006 comes along. I'm in Wal-mart... I cruise by the TV DVD section... I look to my right and what do I see? Star Trek: The Original Series with an icredibly low price on it. I stood there. Speechless. I see season two and three. Same price. I tell my buddy, "Ryan! Look!" I point. He gasps. Covers his mouth with his hand. We're shocked. We stand there for what felt like days... weeks even! I spoke first... "I'm getting lite headed... I need to sit down." We just stay there, staring at it. We then debate buying them. "Should we get them?" "I can't believe this! Look how cheap they are!" "I know! We got TNG and DS9 for what? The same price? Maybe less?" BUT! There was only one copy of the first season. Two of the second and two of the third. Who would get the one and only copy of the first season?

I stood forth and declared, "Ryan, you can have the first season. I'll take two and three." He then says, "You could ask an employee if they have another one. This deal is too good to pass by." "Ryan... we're in Wal-mart." (zing!) So he pays. Then I pay. Then I blurt out without even knowing it, "You don't happen to another copy of season one do you?" "Oh, I can check if you hold on one minute." WTF?! A helpful Wal-mart employee?! That's when I knew we had a truly lucky day.

Now today, September 25, 2006 comes along. I'm in Wal-mart... I cruise by the TV DVD section... I look to my right and what do I see? Star Trek: The Original Series with an icredibly low price on it. I stood there. Speechless. I see season two and three. Same price. I tell my buddy, "Ryan! Look!" I point. He gasps. Covers his mouth with his hand. We're shocked. We stand there for what felt like days... weeks even! I spoke first... "I'm getting lite headed... I need to sit down." We just stay there, staring at it. We then debate buying them. "Should we get them?" "I can't believe this! Look how cheap they are!" "I know! We got TNG and DS9 for what? The same price? Maybe less?" BUT! There was only one copy of the first season. Two of the second and two of the third. Who would get the one and only copy of the first season?

I stood forth and declared, "Ryan, you can have the first season. I'll take two and three." He then says, "You could ask an employee if they have another one. This deal is too good to pass by." "Ryan... we're in Wal-mart." (zing!) So he pays. Then I pay. Then I blurt out without even knowing it, "You don't happen to another copy of season one do you?" "Oh, I can check if you hold on one minute." WTF?! A helpful Wal-mart employee?! That's when I knew we had a truly lucky day.

i used to work on a local radio station, before i got sick, and we did a movie program (i was sorely tempted some weeks not to go to the cinema and just copy Holdens reviews, but i didn't) anyway we had a halloween special once and we were talking about Dracula, who was your favourite etc, i said Gary Oldman and another older presenter said christopher lee while another said max schreck, but the one thing we all agreed on was that  for the majority of people Bela Lugosi would be the iconic dracula burned into most peoples psyche,

I remember when this came out the reviews were tremendous so I'm really looking forward to catching up on this..

i understand you perfectly Hemlock. I had never seen it before but I had heard it was a mix of Irreversible and Thelma and Lousie, so i bought it cheap. While i do like a dark, gritty movie, this one smashed just about everything i thought werent allowed to be shown in the movie. actual hardcore sex scenes, extreme violence, and a story, dialouge, and mood so dark and  downright evil that it made se7en look like a disney movie.
I had to sit down and watch Shrek after i saw it, just to get in a good mood again. Definetly not for the weak hearted...

Not sure if we'll see a box set with everything in it (since different companies bring out the DVDs), but I did see they've done a special edition of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 now, which is an intriguing, nasty and funny movie (much like Motel Hell).

Oh little_bill, this is my favorite x-mas movie. It is a tradition to have it playing while were opening presents and when we're cooking dinner!! If you haven't seen it yet you will love it.  Watch for the little mishap the director did.  I think it is near the end, when Scrooge is jumpin around his room and he goes out to look out the window, you can see the camera man and others in the mirror. Maybe someone can get you a screencap. It's kinda a classic screw-up now! Neat really!
 
Oh and to keep on topic last DVD I bought was Revenge w/Kevin Costner- Not as good I had hope, actually not good at all!  ;D

Actually Lilly there's software that'll remove the region coding so you can watch any disc an infinite amount of times, such as AnyDVD, (http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html)which can be used for making backups as well (when you got kids backups are a lifesaver). There's also a freebie called DVD43 (http://www.dvd43.com/), but you need Win2000 or XP for that. However since you already got 2 drives, guess that works too...but just an FYI.

I don't believe using a region free software program is illegal, if used for viewing. Copying is another matter. I know as far as actual console players that are multi-region or region free, they sell those on Amazon (as well as Amazon.uk), so I would think software players are legal as well, being many are are sold on legit sites. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Agent on October 24, 2006, 12:00:04 PM
I don't think it's a Microsoft thing, really. The DVD CCA site  (http://www.dvdcca.org/faq.html) explains pretty well the "why's" of CSS and region limitations (bottom of page):

Quote
Movies are often released at different times in different parts of the world. For example, a film that opens in December in the U.S. might not premier in Tokyo until several months later. By the time that Tokyo premier occurs, the film may be ready for DVD distribution in the U.S.

Regional DVD coding allows viewers to enjoy films on DVD at home shortly after their region's theatrical run is complete by enabling regions to operate on their own schedules. A film can be released on DVD in one region even though it is still being played in theaters in another region because regional coding ensures it will not interfere with the theatrical run in another region. Without regional coding, all home viewers would have to wait until a film completes its entire global theatrical run before a DVD could be released anywhere.
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Lilly on October 24, 2006, 12:12:13 PM
Thanks, Agent.  Except everyone just buys foreign DVDs off the web anyway.  I wouldn't mind if the different regional releases were of equal quality. >:(

When I mention Microsoft, I mean the way that Windows limits the number of times you can change the region of your DVD drive to five.  That's pure protectionism, because there's no technological reason for it.  It just annoys me that you can buy a region-free dvd player for £30, but if your dvd player happens to be in your computer, it isn't region-free unless you break the OS licence agreement. ::)
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Agent on October 24, 2006, 12:38:17 PM
I think Microsoft is forced to comply to the rules and regulations. For instance, my software DVD player, WinDVD, (http://www.intervideo.com/jsp/Home.jsp) has the same restrictions...something like 5 times to switch and that's it. As far as I know, all (legit) software players have that same restriction.

I liked quite a bit of The Sand Pebbles even though it was a bit too long but Peckinpah`s The Osterman Weekend was a dissappointing.Luckily it was not too expensive.

Thanks Agent, thanks Gant, had not seen the Parallax view for so long, watched it last night, very good to see it again.
Hemlock also love The Sand Pebbles, that's a nice edition, some good extra material on there.

I also have this on the way

Mark of the Vampire
Mask of Fu Manchu
The Devil Doll
Dr. X
Return of Dr. X
Mad Love
6 Classic Horrors from the Golden age.

BTW Does anyone own the 100 Years of Horror DVD collection? I think it contains some 20+ half hour episodes, wondered if it was a quality produced show or not? I think it is out on a 5 Disc Box set.

I was reading today where a blue Plaque has been errected on the building where Boris Karloff was born in Dulwich South London.. It's a Turkish restaurant now and the entrance is loaded with Karloff memorabilia.

No, I'm not dropping that kind of cash all in one go. I'd love to get my hands on the book, and maybe they'll make that available separately at some point (I hope), but I have a bunch of the movies already (The Life & Death of Colonel Blimp, Black Orpheus, Brief Encounter, Summertime, The Third Man, The Fallen Idol, Floating Weeds, The 400 Blows, Jules & Jim, Kind Hearts & Coronets, Grand Illusion, Rashomon, Ikiru, The Wages of Fear,  Knife in the Water, The Lady Vanishes, The 39 Steps, M, Loves of a Blonde, The Seventh Seal, The Virgin Spring, Ugetsu, Umberto D.), and I can't see going broke to get the rest.

But yeah, I've certainly considered it ever since Criterion unveiled it on the website a couple months back. I love the work Janus has done and will continue to do, and they already have thousands of my dollars between all the Criterion LDs and DVDs I've bought over the years. I even recently bought a Janus Films T-Shirt from them, that's how big a movie geek I am. But no, I don't think I'll be getting that set.

There's also that new Warner's ultimate collection set coming out.  There's not alot of details on it, at least that I can find, but it seems like there's a lot of DVDs in that set.  It's only like $3,000 or so.

Yesterday, I ordered The Bob Newhart Show season 4 and Alfred Hitchcock Presents season 2. I don't have season one yet, but I've read there were some problems with the discs. They put 39 episodes on three double-sided discs and I guess a lot of people had problems with the discs freezing up (or some did anyhow, and wrote about it on Amazon.com). Does anybody here have season 1, and if so, have you had any problems like that?
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Doug on November 13, 2006, 04:04:17 AM
I watched Alfred Hitchcock Presents Season One but I got it from Netflix, and the discs are not double-sided, so there were six altogether.  Perhaps Universal has fixed the problem with the double-sided discs and it would be safe to buy them now....  Some are some great episodes there, so you should try to get it somehow.

looks like i ordered just in time, the scabby governmnet want to double tax all internet purchases so that they get their cut, but they're suggesting 21% off the price of the product , which normally already includes tax, they reall y are the worst government in history, they are stopping all internet packages in until the duty is paid by the shopper, while the hospitals fall apart and more people die on the roads,
there's only 3 million people in Ireland so many retailers don't bother coming over so items are either expensive or unavailable except for online

Yup the cover is a bit misleading  ;D

Those two"new"Harry Palmer-films:Bullet To Beijing(`95) and The Midnight In St.Petersburgh(`97) are decent spy-suspense films but most definitely not as classic as the The Ipcress File,Funeral In Berlin or even Billion Dollar Brain.

Michael Caine is as good as ever but there`s that TV-show-quality in those two films...I bought them only because they were in the same boxset with Ipcress File(called The Ultimate Harry Palmer Collection)and it was really cheap.

I believe that The Man Who Would Be King and A Bridge Too Far are still the only two films that got both Michael Caine and Sean Connery.

Yeah, I read it when it was new back in 2001. It's good, and really a must if you're a "SNL" fan (if so, how have you gone this long without picking up a copy?). It's basically just an oral history, so it isn't structured like a typical a-to-b-to-c linear what happened when, but it does convey lots of information, plenty of anecdotes and they talk to a few dozen of the key people. Eddie Murphy is the only major surviving cast member who didn't participate, but you get the dish from just about all the others plus the writers, the guest hosts and musical guests, Lorne and on and on. Even without Murphy it's amazingly comprehensive.

Yeah, lots of fun and juicy gossip.

The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe.


(http://i17.ebayimg.com/04/i/08/bb/e8/7c_1.JPG)

Just picked this up for under £2.. had to have it.
This is the original 13 part black and White series filmed in the early 60's. I think it was French and dubbed for English tv. I remember this being shown every summer during the holidays throughout my childhood...
Brilliant theme tune..

Still surprisingly funny.

  I used to watch this every year with friend of mine.

  Caught it on on network T.V. once, and instead of Randy Quaid saying "$#!tter's full!" while waving like an idiot when he is pumping the nastyness out of the RV into the sewer, he says "Merry Christmas!" and waves.  For some reason that was actually funnier than the original line.

I viewed the film and I can say that I really do not care to see it again but it was a well made movie with good acting and the ending got to me. I give it a thumbs up.

Regarding The Snowman:
After it's first showing in the UK on Channel Four and it's first showing on US TV, a different intro was sometimes used. David Bowie featured in these alternate versions with the same speech made in the previous intro by Raymond Briggs. Universals DVD The Snowman & Father Christmas, released in the UK in 2000 uses the David Bowie intro BUT the Bowie intro is missing from some Sony DVD's even though it is clearly marked on the packaging. I think Ch 4 have since also used another intro which was directed by Roger Mainwood, I think that's 3 different versions in all.
BTW There are also different versions in regards to the hugely successful song featured in the film 'Walking in the air' sung by Peter Auty, some versions do not contain a vocal performance at all and instead purely the instrumental score accompanies the sequence.

I have the special edition and really enjoyed the extras.  The Milius and Scorsese interviews were very interesting, as was the production footage. O0  The old Behind the Cameras TV footage is always good, such a product of its time.

Post by: Chrissie on February 01, 2007, 08:25:39 AM
I bought 3 DVDs.
First: Dirty Harry - I guess I there's no need to describe it ;)

Second: Lady Snowblood or Shurayukihime:  The film a major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films, which borrow the story of the woman with a list of targets, and the chapter format. The scene in which The Bride fights O-Ren Ishii uses a snowy landscape that echoes scenes in Lady Snowblood, and the theme song sung by Meiko Kaji (translated by Tarantino as "The Flower of Carnage") is also used in Kill Bill.
Plot summary: Yuki's family is nearly wiped out before she is born due to the machinations of a band of criminals. These criminals kidnap and brutalize her mother but leave her alive. Later her mother ends up in prison with only revenge to keep her alive. She creates an instrument for this revenge by purposefully getting pregnant. Though she dies in childbirth, she makes sure that the child will be raised as an assassin to kill the criminals who destroyed her family. Young Yuki never knows the love of a family but only killing and revenge. I love this movie. It's so beautifull and cruel. Just watch it

Third: The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi: n an empire ruled by fear, the people's only hope is the ultimate weapon: Zatoichi (Kitano) -- a blind, nomadic samurai whose sword has made him a hero and whose courage has made him a legend! Determined to help the desperate residents of a village, Zatoichi seeks justice through revenge!
This movie is basing of a fictional character featured in one of Japan's longest running series of films and a television series set in the Edo period.  I love Japanese movies especially from Kurosawa. Zatoichi is a bit of a hommage to this great director from another great Japanese director: Kitano.

Matrix: Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?
Sully: That's right, Matrix. You did.
Matrix: I lied.

That scene came to my mind when Sully turned up in Flags Of Our Fathers as President Truman.I don't remember seeing him in anything else in between these two films.

Thanks HP - your review was one of deciding factors that pointed me towards buying it.  ;)

A note: When doing a 3-month stint in Jamaica during the early 90s, one of the things that helped me keep my sanity was reading lots of books. I came across a tattered old copy of a book called People's Temple - People's Tomb, an account written by a former member of the cult who came to his senses and left the group shortly before they relocated to Guyana. He was one of the lucky ones who managed to stay alive. Most of the others who 'defected' were mysteriously found dead in their homes, etc, of apparent 'suicides.' And this was while they were still in San Francisco. Made the hairs of my neck stand up.

     But, the most recent is:

      FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS

     Found it two or three days in a KROGER (huge grocery chain) store they were just stocking it and they had it in widescreen and I jumped on it...

     Absolutely a necessary movie for us to have.....No special features, but I imagine they will make up for it when LETTERS comes out.....

     I don't go to theaters anymore, I just wait for the DVD in widescreen...

St Elmo's Fire[/i] (I have no idea if it's gonna be any good but I wanted to see an 80s brat pack movie, out of interest. :-\)

I meant to ask this when Lilly posted this last month.

How many people here buy DVD's of films they've never seen.A friend of mine at work does it all the time and they're not cheap ones either.I only buy DVD's of films that I have seen and want to see again and again.

I know we go to the cinema not knowing if we're going to like the film,but if you buy a DVD and don't like it,your stuck with it and blown your money.

I try to stick with buying movies I really love so I can keep myself from buying too many DVDs and spending a whole lotta money on them (which I haven't always stuck with just movies I really love). But I've bought a good number of movies I've never seen before. In fact, I still have some movies on my shelf I haven't watched yet, like Knightriders and A Bullet for the General (this one came in a box set that was a gift, though). I bought Knightriders because I love George Romero and he rarely lets me down. Martin was a movie that I bought on instinct and became my favorite Romero film. Other Romero films I bought before seeing them were Season of the Witch, which also has There's Always Vanilla on it, and Day of the Dead. As I said, Romero rarely lets me down so I'm comfortable getting his films without seeing them.

I guess most recently I bought Black Christmas without having seen it, and I liked it a lot too.

I have some Spaghetti Westerns that I bought not knowing what the movie would be like. I've had pretty good success with those too as far as liking the movies.

I always tell myself I'll just stick with buying movies I know I already love. ;)

Casino Royale
Rocky II
Rocky III
Rocky IV
Rocky V
Rocky Balboa


It was actually cheaper to buy Rocky II - V separately rather then in the box set. Plus the edition of Rocky in the box set isn't the special edition that I already owned.

Last week, I bought


A friend mentioned "Anatomy of Hell" to me a few months ago, I thought the plot peculiar and I decided to check it out. I wasn't prepared to see it the first time around... yet I was completely drawn into it. I have seen it a few time, I don't like the beginning that much but it's a very interesting and strange movie.

I think I've only seen The French Connection once, and of course I've seen the other two a few times and enjoy those.

I do like how they've started packaging some movies together by two or threes.

Harry and the Hendersons. ;D My family has a very old VHS copy of this movie that I remember watching a lot when I was little. Haven't seen it in a long time.

(http://content.vcommerce.com/products/951/8876951/main-205.jpg)

Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1989. This is actually the first Columbo set I'll own so I'm pretty excited about that. :D O0 The price was right. It has five TV movies: Columbo Goes to the Guillotine; Murder, Smoke, and Shadows; Sex and the Married Detective; Grand Deceptions; and Murder, a Self Portrait.

Well it has God's Gun and that was the one you were looking for a few months ago so I'd say it was a great find. O0

True. I actually found it earlier on the internet, but couldn't order it, because I wasn't sure whether to trust the company. They wanted to know dad's (he would have let me use his credit card) social security number, and we weren't sure if it's safe to give it. Then I found it in a local supermarket, and it was the last one.

I hope the movies are worth watching.  ::)

A History of Violence was only $12.00,but after I took it off the shelf and was reading the back cover,a shop assistant came along and took the other copies off the shelf,so I think the price was about to go back up again.  :)

I actually saw these two yesterday but decided against buying them since on both 4 disc packages I had one film that I already own.Which is always the way with these box sets. >:(

Then I thought what the heck and I went back today and bought them.Price tag on them said $20.00 each but when I purchased them and extra 15% came off since the store is closing down and I got them for $17.00 each.

Box set One: They Drive By Night, High Sierra, Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have Not.

Box Set Two: Big Sleep, Dark Passage, Key largo, Treasure of Sierra Madre.

I seem to remember that D'Amb may have gotten these a year or two ago as well.

I had considered buying a few of the Humphrey Bogart collections over the years, however, was a bit skeptical. I opted not to simply because I knew that most of transfers were sloppy and not as clean as they should have been.  I assumed that Warner Brothers would eventfully have to give these films the proper treatment they deserved with clean transfers and loaded film extras and of course they finally came around for most of them.  I still had most of my old VHS copies at the time so I was in no rush to acquire this set.  It paid off with the release of The Bogart Signature Collection last year in which the Casablanca two disc special edition and the three disc special edition The Maltese Falcon were included.  One disc not included in the set is The Big Sleep single DVD which includes both the 114 minute 1946 theatrical-release version and the 116 minute 1944 pre-release version containing 18 minutes which were either reshot or deleted from the theatrical release which is must have. I have most of the collector editions DVDs in single releases purchased the week they came out so no need to buy the box set although I have thought about it from time to time.

The world at war is a fine series and a perfect example of the quality that was Thames television both as a programme maker and a solid part of the ITV network.

Sadly these days of televison are long gone and never to return.  :(

Yeah, great choice, Agent. O0  Philo, I share your sentiment, but don't want to say "never".  I think there is hope for the future, and there is still some amazing work being done.  However, I am nostalgic for those big, quality documentary epics.

Hi Lilly,

I don't like the word never either but ......

The fact that ITV has no identity and has lost touch with local issues which when it was made up of regions was it's strength, is never to return.

My problem is that nothing appears fresh to me anymore. I am getting old and that has a lot to do with it.

Speaking of old TV, I bought this two disc set at Best Buy last week. This show scared the heck out of me when I was a kid but so far re-watching it hasn't given me any nightmares - yet.  I've enjoyed seeing actors like Cliff Robertson, Martin Sheen, and Carroll O'Connor in some of their earlier roles, and Martin Landau, David McCallum, and Robert Culp portrayed some pretty bizarre aliens:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/f/f4/OL-themanwhowasneverborn-andro.jpg/250px-OL)                   (http://www.homevideos.com/freezes-outerlimits/OL-SixthFinger1.jpeg)                           (http://www.theouterlimits.com/episodes/season1960/images/fear.jpg)

Volume one contains sixteen episodes from the first season (I guess that would be half a season) and there are no bonus features included on the discs. Still, to me it was a worthwhile purchase.

You know, those Zanti Misfits still creep me out a bit!

Yeah, a very young Martin Sheen is in an episode entitled, "Nightmare" where he is one of several prisoners of war brutally interrogated on the planet Ebon.

The arm in that Zanti Misfits photo belongs to veteran actor and Eastwood alum, Bruce Dern.

Finally got around to watching this a couple of night's ago.

Absolutely brilliant.

Just over two hours of The Boss on stage with the sessions band.Violins,trumpets,Sax's,banjo etc all on one stage with some great songs from the We Shall Overcome album and some old favorites redone in the same style.

DVD opens with a great version of Atlantic City.Also the versions of Open All Night and Blinded By The Light are highlights of the show.

I thought Live In New York City was the best of Springsteen's DVD's but this one is now my favorite.

Thanks for the recommendation Schofield! I will definitely check this film out. I've actually watched Cagney's films for years on TV but have been wanting to get my hands on some DVD's to add to my collection. He's moving up the list of my favorite actors for sure! The guy had such great charisma.

I usually order DVD's from the internet. And I have a friend who is a filmfreak as well, and this guy sometimes calls me when he's in a DVD store and finds a movie wich I might like.. That's a good habit 'cause in my town there are no DVD stores left. The last DVD's I bought were:

Apocalypse Now ( Brilliant film, is in my top ten right next to the Good, the Bad and the Ugly )
Donnie Brasco ( Nice gangster movie )
Taxi Driver ( One of the greatest movies period. )
Raging Bull ( Wich I didn't like, even as a DeNiro fan.. Too bad. )
Pulp Fiction ( Had to buy it, just because it's a masterpiece. )

I ordered the Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistfull Of Dollars yesterday, I should have gotten it today, but the company seems not to be too keen on keepin' their promises..

I'm also planning on buying OUATITW, I saw it for the first time just a view days ago, borrowed it from the same friend that buys my DVD's .. Masterpiece!

Newest DVD's. Most bought at used DVD store:

A Clockwork Orange (Kubrick's masterpiece. Phenomenal.)
Taxi Driver  (One of the best films ever made. De Niro is another favorite actor.)
Insomnia  (Great Pacino thriller)
G Men starring James Cagney  (He rules!)
The Life of Emile Zola  (Forgotten excellence.)
Little Caesar  (One of the first and best gangster pictures.)
Stephen King's The Shining  (Good remake. Still prefer Stanley Kubrick's original.)
Papillon  (As a Steve Mcqueen fan, this is one of his best performances.)
Never So Few  (Mcqueen's debut. Haven't yet watched)
Fritz Lang's Metropolis  (Expensive restored version but well worth it. Great film)
Candyman 3: Day of the Dead  (Gotta love those horror movies!)    ;)
Another 48 Hrs.  (Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy as two hard nosed cops. Loved it and had fun)
Blue Velvet  (Brilliant and dark. David Lynch is a genius.)
The Fugitive Kind  (Great Marlon Brando film)
El Dorado
The Shootist
Marathon Man
Mississippi Burning  (Excellent. Very depressing)

There's been a huge DVD sale at one of the stores here for the last couple of weeks. They advertised Lonesome Dove for $13.00. I must have spent 20 minutes searching for it last week as they were piled in one of those bargain bins. Do you think I could find it? Walk in again today and there it is sitting right on top of the pile.

I've never seen it, but keep hearing that it's fantastic and at that price, I couldn't pass it up.

I really like this guy, Seth Rogen.  I think he's a fresh new comedic actor and I absolutely loved him in 40 Year Old Virgin alongside Steve Carell.  So, this is my first ever purchased DVD before having even seen the movie.
Knocked Up wasn't just another hilarious comedy, but also a believable real life type story.  Moreover, I had initially assumed the comedy itself would go out the window once the serious part of the story began, but I was wrong.  This movie keeps you laughing even when it becomes a serious situation.  It’s a real good movie IMO.  9/10

A bought Pink Cadillac, Tightrope,True Crime and The Gauntlet and they are in great condition. I have seen Tightrope and Pink Cadillac only once. I will be looking forward to watching them again. I remember liking Tightrope much more then Pink Cadillac.

 :) Hello KC !

It's a quadrilogy : 1) ALIEN by Ridley Scott (1979)
                               2) ALIENS by James Cameron (1985)
                               3) ALIEN 3 by David Fincher (1991)
                               4) ALIEN RESURRECTION  by the French ( ;)) Jean-Pierre Jeunet (1997)

  I don't think she is counting "Aliens Versus Predator".  Amazingly, word on the street has it that a sequel is in the works.  I loved the first two Alien flicks, thought the third was medicore, and hated the last one with a passion.

  Umm...So what does "tetralogy" mean anyway?
Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: Holden Pike on December 20, 2007, 07:42:43 AM
A tetralogy is a compound work that is made up of four distinct works, it is sometimes also called a quadrilogy.

Six of one, half dozen of another. Or rather...four of one and four of the other, too?

The sequel to Aliens Vs. Predator comes out Christmas day here. I saw the first and didn't like it (though it was certainly funny in places) but this one looks like it might be cool.

This is from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_Quadrilogy):
Quote
The term 'Quadrilogy' was in fact a mistake on the part of Fox marketing, but has become something of a neologism. Tetralogy is the more accepted term.

I received  Be Here To Love Me - Townes Van Zandt for Christmas. It is a documentary about the songwriter himself. I watched it tonight and loved it. It shows performances from Townes and talks to friends and family who loved the man.  They talk about the manic depressive alcoholic side that plagued his life as well as the fun loving and humorous person that we was. Townes is my favorite songwriter and seeing this film brought tears and smiles to my face.

You should have a soft spot for Stallone. He's an acting icon and legend. He is so unbelievably underrated it's not even funny. The man can act, write, and direct. He does all three quite well. He is one of my favorite actor's of all-time and I'm happy to say it.

The GET CARTER remake is not as bad as some people say. It's a solid remake and Stallone is badass in the role.

Yup,all of those DVDs that I picked are great but maybe it`s the Kelly`s Heroes that`ll be most watched in my home  ;)

I`ve failed to see There Will Be Blood just yet but I´ve heard raving reviews about the film.So I´m sure I´ll catch it sooner or later.It`s still only at the theaters in Finland.No DVD releases of any kind yet.

The original film is so much better than the remake...as usual.It(remake)should`ve been good with actors like Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep but somehow it still sucked.

The original The Manchurian Candidate is one of the greatest Frank Sinatra film that there is.One of those moments when he showed that he can act too.

It was interesting to listen to the commentary on the Manchurian Candidate remake ... they kept saying they couldn't do this and that, because it had been done so well in the original film.

I enjoyed the original, but I haven't seen it in a long time. However, I thought the remake did a good job of re-thinking the material for a post-Cold War world. And the three leads were fantastic.

Yeah, I've returned after a long time (family stuff), but I just have to say after revisiting the board that I liked The Manchurian Candidate remake a lot. The original is great but they're both very good, just different.  Denzel Washington is a very good actor; Training Day and The Siege are proof enough of that IMO. I thought he was superb in this but hard to compare to Sinatra's performance. Again, big difference...

By the way, I bought the Psycho remake yesterday, and I'm wary it might be a pile of manure ;D. Well, any comments on this remake then?

By the way, I bought the Psycho remake yesterday, and I'm wary it might be a pile of manure ;D. Well, any comments on this remake then?

It's a pile of manure! ;)

Seriously, it's probably the most pointless remake in film history.

In the first place, Psycho is a film that CAN'T be effectively remade, for film-historical reasons. You can't re-create that moment when, as Stephen Rebello put it, Hitchcock "sledge-hammered five decades of movie convention which had it that the star never died (if at all) until the last reel." (Quoted in Kapsis, Hitchcock: The Making of a Reputation, p. 58.)

Hitchcock also put an end to decades of movie-going custom that had audiences wandering in to screenings whenever they pleased, sitting through to the end and then watching the beginning up to the point where someone would say "This is where we came in." Because the film was so dependent on the shock value of the shower scene, Hitchcock launched a huge pre-release campaign proclaiming that "No one ... but no one ... will be admitted to the theatre after the start of each performance of ... Psycho." (Kapis, loc. cit.)

At least, it can't be effectively remade frame-for-frame with basically the same screenplay. (It was gently updated, if I recall right, particularly regarding monetary matters.) But that's exactly what Van Sant chose to do. To me, the amazing part is that someone actually thought highly enough of this project to bankroll it.

I agree. It would have been better to re-adapt Robert Bloch's novel. There are a few differences from the novel and the screenplay. The biggest probably being Norman Bates is a middle-aged alcoholic in the book, plus the book begins with his perspective and later we're introduced to the character of Mary Crane. You could really get quite a different movie there.

Brilliant. LOVE this show. Kind of a combo between "Spaced" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm". I avoided this one for a while because I thought the subjective first-person camera was going to be too gimmicky, but it's so organic and clever and being able to hear the main character's thoughts really makes it special.

Watched the entire series this week and I think I'm going to watch it all again tonight and tomorrow. The second-to-last episode, "Holiday", that's my favorite, the one that builds to the eating of the 'turkey leg' - I'm laughing just thinking about it! The whole series is fantastic. The first series is the only one currently available on R1 DVD. Pity.

This past week,probably like most of You....I bought The Dirty Harry Ultimate edition Collection.
I watched all the extra features...{lots of repeated scenes & information throughout}
I would've liked something on the Finks {who created Harry}
Schickel's commentary on Dirty Harry was boring.I learned NOTHING new{what do You expect with second hand information} My preference for Commentators are the Writer,the Actors,the Director.............
If Clint did the commentaries......this truly would have been the "Ultimate" Collectors Edition !
Next I'm going to listen to Milius' Magnum Force musings ......

Great show for the first couple of seasons, then when it became really big, the annoying endless audience clapping and cheering whenever a character walk in ruined it for me.

I thought the same was going to happen on Seinfeld whenever Kramer walked through the door, but it was stopped when Michael Richards complained that he had to wait for the clapping to stop to deliver his lines.

  MWC got a little stale in the middle seasons (roughly 4-5-6), and then around Season 8 it became great again.  I'd take the audience cheering over a canned laugh track any day.

^^ Yeah I thought it was a very good film and Al Pacino and Russell Crowe were great in it. Michael Mann is a good director also.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) on blu-ray. My first blu-ray purchase! I'm still against blu-ray but the fact that BEST BUY sold out of the 3-disc special edition DVD and that I own a Play Station 3, I figured this is the perfect movie to watch in blu-ray because of the special effects. We'll see how it looks.

I loved to watch "The Persuaders" on Saturday afternoon with my brothers and Mum/ Dad, I was 12 or 13 years old  !!! Always funny and so many beautiful cars in it !!! O0

Then on Saturday evenings, "The Rich and The Poor", and "Payton Place", with Alison Mackenzie (Mia Farrow) ... first time I heard that name (and that's the reason   why my daughter is called like that, because of Alison Lurie (writer) too ... but that's another story ! ;))

Both 'Cape Fear' movies were great, IMO. Robert De Niro was especially intense in the remake. One of my favorite actors. The 'Cape Fear' remake was one of the few times when the remake just might have been better than the original.

Unfortunately I've never taken part in the movie nights because I don't have the setup for it. No DVD player on my computer or a TV with a DVD player in the computer room.

I've been itching to buy a number of DVDs lately. I guess I'm trying to catch up on that time I wasn't buying any. ;) I'm tempted to get the three Eastwood westerns packaged together: High Plains Drifter, Joe Kidd, and Two Mules for Sister Sara. But like this other set, I already have High Plains Drifter, but the other two are the only Eastwood westerns I don't have. At least the price isn't bad for these.

Dangerous Liaisons

That picture is actually from a book cover that comes with the movie. I lost account how many times I've seen this one...John Malkovich is very attractive here. Veja is a magazine that is releasing a especial selection with 50 movies that "express magistrally the fascination of cinema". Until now, I have bought this one. The book brings informations and pictures about the cast and crew.

Get Smart Season 2

Post by: Aline on April 04, 2009, 07:39:24 AM
Nice, Christopher. I have Get Smart , the remake, have you seen that one? Many people complain about the big differences from the original series but I enjoyed it.  The fact I love Steve Carell helps too. :)

Yeah, Aline, I enjoyed the movie version too. The TV series is one of my all time favorites. I'll probably get the rest of the seasons as they become available for individual sale.

Great movie. Love Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in it. It's amazing how the romance was so much more charming back then. Find those kind of movies more appealing than tons of Basic Instint and the similar ones.

The Fugitive - Season Two - Volume Two

Name: Richard Kimble. Profession: Doctor of Medicine. Destination: Death Row, State Prison. Richard Kimble has been tried and convicted for the murder of his wife. But laws are made by men, carried out by men. And men are imperfect. Richard Kimble is innocent. Proved guilty, what Richard Kimble could not prove was that moments before discovering his wife's body, he encountered a man running from the vicinity of his home. A man with one arm. A man he had never seen before. A man who has not yet been found. Richard Kimble ponders his fate as he looks at the world for the last time. And sees only darkness. But in that darkness, fate moves its huge hand.

Hable con ella (in Spanish)
"Talk to Her"

I'd like to find a word to describe this movie but I still can't...
unusual, maybe.

Two beautiful young women in coma being treated by two men. That is the first Pedro Almodóvar movie I watch. It's a powerful, breathtaking, dirturbing, sad movie. Watch it when you can.

There's another movie in the list I won't be buying since I already have it.

Or...maybe I will buy just because of the nice book that comes along.

It's been ascribed, dubiously, to Einstein, and even more dubiously to Benjamin Franklin. A quick search of Google Books (I was foolishly thinking published books might actually have been copy-edited and fact-checked) turned up additional attributions to Rollo May, Rita Mae Brown, the A.A., and the ever-popular "Someone."

Dog Day Afternoon

I bought and put this movie in my dvd player without many expectations and couldn't turn off until the end.
It's just amazing. At the beginning they say it was based on real facts, wow.

What is Al Pacino in this one...breathtaking. It strange seeing him so young, I'm more used watching his recent movies. Even his voice is a little different. The claustrophobic atmosphere made me remember Phone Booth just this one is way better. A thing that surprised me, even in a middle of a terrible situation the movie has some laugh moments.

Sure many of you must have seen it. If not, do it. It's amazing.

I'm with your wife on this one  :D Loved Cloverfield. I liked the raw & shaky camerawork. I thought it was so realistic. Funny that I wasn't as impressed with that particular filming style on Blairwitch Project as I was on that film ???

The first books I ever read in English were Stephen King's (Shawshank Redemption and Different Seasons). Different Seasons is one of my favorite books ever, and Stand By Me is based on the short story "The Body". I had to have the film  ;)

What I think about Gan Torino? Well I loved it, however I found it sad and moving.   If this is Clint's last movie in front of the camera then I think it is a very good swan song, but I would like to see him in a starring role again.

License to Kill

For your eyes Only

Became addicted to Bond movies after watching Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale so decided to check the old ones. I know things change through the years and some of you might disagree, but Daniel Craig is the best. It has been hard to watch License to Kill, Timothy Dalton was too thin to be a 007 agent. ???
Still didn't watch For your eyes only but I'm sure any of those will beat Mr. Craig.

i discovered James Bond when i was younger with *Golden Eye*, me and my sister were like ''Pierce Bresnan is soooo coool'' haha good memories... and after that i started to check the older ones. I very much liked Casino Royale but didnt like Quantum... i really hope that the next one is going to be good.

Dial M for Murder

My comment has spoilers for this movie and for A Perfect Murder

I love that movie, one of Hitchcock's best. You must know there is a remake called A Perfect Murder with Michael Douglas and Gwyneth Paltrow, which I like most. In the original, there is a lot of talk about characteres we never see. That makes the movie boring and confusing sometimes. Also in A Perfect Murder I think more interesting that is the main character who discloses the evil plan all by herself. In the original, she is totally clueless and her lover and the inspector do all the work. I think A Perfect Murder is one of the few remakes that worked very well. 
Anyway, I'm glad I have Dial M for Murder in my collection now. It's a classic I will always love.

Title: Re: What Was The Last DVD You Bought ?
Post by: KC on August 02, 2009, 12:05:20 PM
No, the "shock-ee" was because it's even more of a thriller in 3-D. Though, it's been a long time since I saw it that way, in one of New York's repertory theaters.

Say, I just got an idea ... Clint should film a remake of The Eiger Sanction in 3-D! Someone else would have to play Hemlock, of course ... Clint could still direct, working exclusively from a helicopter! :D

Movie spin-off from the popular 60's/70's tv show starring Rodney Bewes and James Bolam...

Unlike most movie spin offs this really does stand up on it's own merit.. The actors work so well together and the script is top notch.. It was great re visiting these characters from my youth..

I vaguely remembered them to be decent films from Chuck Norris and after watching Lone Wolf McQuade
I wasn`t too badly disappointed.It was pretty good B-action film with a bit of"italo western"mood in it.

Dogs In Space

This was a huge cult favorite of mine back in the late eighties, early nineties.  Now it's finally been released on DVD as a great two disc collection, but only in Australia, but that's okay because they really did a great job on it.

Quote
Set against the backdrop of Melbourne’s late ‘70s punk rock scene, Dogs in Space chronicles life in a chaotic, squalid share-house. Hippies, addicts, students and radicals fill their days and nights with sex, drugs, parties and television. Writer/director Richard Lowenstein balances a series of chaotic vignettes with the central story of the romance between housemates Sam (Michael Hutchence), the lead singer of the band, Dogs in Space and his lover Anna (Saskia Post) as it spirals out of control.

If you don't know who Michael Hutchence is, you probably won't like the movie.  Even if you have you may not like the movie, but I love it.  It's funny, a bit sad, and has a great soundtrack.

Flame  1975

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_yv6ENZWLDUQ/R42vFuh1fcI/AAAAAAAAALE/vunqKjmlLP0/s320/Flame2.jpg)


Real life rock band Slade play fictional band Flame in this gritty look at the life of an up and coming band in the mid 70's.

Slade were huge in the UK during the early 70's and had many number 1 hits.. I think they also had some success in the States. Flame was possibly not the film that their fans were expecting..it's quite a raw film showing the darker, seedier side of show buisness following Flame on their rise to fame and the enevitable crash.... Quite possibly it marked the beginning of a decline in the bands fortunes..although they remained a top draw live and continued with sparodic chart succes.  That siad.. it's a terrific film in hindsight, the band..all non actors aquit themselves well along with a strong supporting cast..and the film has a great soundtrack.. Recommended if you wanna see a slice of 70's style glam rock with a heavy dose of reality....

Hey Sylvie,

It has to be Mark Harmon as Gibbs, although everyone in the cast are great.

I love the fact now that we're getting the new season episodes just a week after they're being shown in the States.

Was this a gift to yourself? ;D

It was actually. Now all I have to do is just wait for Beauty and the Beast to hit Blu-Ray next fall.

That's nice. I'm a little surprised, I thought you bought it to give to a niece or something. You doesn't seem or talk like a guy who likes fairy tales :D

Hemlock, your wife has a nice taste, Roman Holiday is a gem. The chemistry between Gregory and Audrey is too special. In the extras, Gregory says the producers wanted his name before Audrey's in the opening credits and he refused, saying something like "no, this woman is going to be a star".

*little spoilers about the ending ahead*...I love the final scene. Her speech is so moving and after she finished, he stands there for a while. I was wishing (and I think they wanted the audience to wish that) she would come back and would run away with him. Then, after a while, he walks away with a tender smile in his face and suddenly we see the credits showing up. That was just a holiday...the holiday of their lives :'(

Another of my favorite scenes. Before knowing she is the princess, Joe specifically tells her not sleep on the bed but on a small couch. When he came back, he realizes she didn't understand his request very well ;D

Well Aline let`s just say that my wife knows my taste in film  ;) She`s not that excited about older (read:black&white) films but she`s very keen to seen any kind of film that has Rome in it as it`s going to be our next summer holiday`s destination  O0

I´ve seen Roman Holiday few times before and it never grows old.Wonderful,entertaining,feel good film.Peck and Hepburn are perfect in it...and Eddie Albert is quite good too.

About Shaun Of The Dead.I bought because I loved Hot Fuzz from the same guys and have read nothing but good reviews of the Shaun.

The 1970 musical version of Scrooge--I saw this one for the first time last year and it instantly became one of my favorite versions of A Christmas Carol (this makes four versions I own on DVD). O0
