Tomorrow the Tyrannosaurus Rex Zinc of Finches box set should arrive, with a DVD of rare performance footage.
"Victory At Sea" for $5.50 at my local Wal-Mart and a friend gave me a R2 UK PAL DVD of "Convoy."
Gotta say that is a bad-*** looking set there. I have never seen any of those movies. Coolest box set I have seen in awhile.
What's new about the Ice Age dvd?
Now that you mention it i think I'll Que this up this weekend. It is so good. I think this was made between Godfather I and II. and really it might be better than both of them. It's just great old school movie making. what a run Coppola had in the 70's when you consider apocalypse now was 1979 too iirc.
The Wicker Man
The Great Escape

I Dream Of Jeannie-Season 1 (B&W of course)
The Monkees-Season 1

The Prisoner-The Complete Series

The guys working at the DVD counter at Discorama are trying to convince me that I would love Wonder Showzen but I've never seen an episode. Anybody got an opinion? Is the DVD set worth the price?
Lord Of War
Two For The Money
Gilmore Girls Sn. 5
Pretender Sn. 3
Here's the unaired pilot at YouTube - you can find a number of authorized clips there as well if you search the name. (Be sure to watch "Thank You Slaves" ) It's sort of like Sesame Street if the Children's Television Workshop were headed by William S. Burroughs. Puppets, interviews with real kids, stock footage; all the things you might see in an educational show but with some dangerous ideas below the surface. The DVD has some fun extras, including commentary from Dick Gregory, who plays Mr. Sun. You may want to catch some episodes on MTV2 first to see if you enjoy it; people tend to find it terribly funny (like me) or just plain sick.
(I should hasten to add that some of these clips are Not Safe For Work.)
Lardi di Bicicletta (Bicycle Thieves) [Region 0, PAL]
Donnie Darko (Director's Cut)
Eagles - Farewell I Tour
Jean Michel Jarre - Solidarnosc: Live from Gdansk, Poland CD+DVD [Region 2-5, NTSC]
how is this movie??? I've been thinking about renting it, but always decide on something else
I have a thing for DVD box sets from other regions that come inconveniently packaged with replicas that represent artifacts from the film. Like the Hellraiser Puzzle Box:
Or Jackie Chan's latest, The Myth, that comes with a little terra cotta soldier that you "excavate" from his own little ball of dirt:
Or Tsui Hark's Seven Swords that comes with, you guessed it, seven little swords(one is a set of two):
Separate names with a comma.
