Title: I Just Bought...
Post by: ᾦɐļᵲʊʂ on October 25, 2003, 05:14:10 PM
The purpose of this thread is just to see who's getting or has gotten what most recently.  I usually get inspired to listen to music from the "Now Playing..." thread in Real-Life Soundtracks section, so this is just to inspire people to get movies, because I have such a long list, I forget some that I need.  So this place is just to say what you got, recommend it or whatever.  

Today I got Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut on DVD.

I really gotta credit you on the last-minute addition of it to the cart Magali, I added it right after you mentioned it in the Lynch thread. There was a reason for me not buying it the day it came out that I can't remember for the life of me but it doesn't matter anyway, there's really no excuse so I won't even try. Thanks for the reminder.

Quote from: Sydney
The Exorcist Box Set (on sale for 9.99!)


I want to see the second one just so I can see what a Scorsese guilty pleasure looks like, and then it's one of the many movies that recieved Pauline Kael's surprising praise out of nowhere...those are always fun. But is it even worth it? I'm asking everbody here.

Quote from: Pedro the Wombat
Where do you get your money, mac?


Seriously, I wanna see on of those VH1 "Fabulous Life Of" episodes featuring Mac for the sole reason of learning how to buy dvd's by the 10-15's. I still have to catch up on The Godfather box set for christ's sake, Back to the Future too, I won't have Indiana Jones for another 2-3 years.

Not a DVD, but I just bought this. Found it in the bargain bin for 5 bucks. It's pretty good since I'm a huge fan of late night talkshows, but I didn't care for the guy who played Leno.

Oh, and I bought Osbournes season 2 on DVD.

I wholeheartedly agree that Far from Heaven is an investment, though...

I liked Igby. Could've been better. Probably not one I'd buy.

Haven't seen it yet. Just got it today on a blind buy, but it was budgie recommended. Thought it was gonna have a commentary track; turns out it doesn't.

Well, I'm a Cronenberg fan, so I really liked it. Haven't see it in a while though. And it does have some pretty great extras (which I haven't through yet). I'll give a better review when I get through everything.

All the extras are the same, except for a new 90 minute documentary: "Beyond JFK: The Question of Conspiracy." Plus the packaging is different. It's in a slip cover, instead of the snapper case that held the second disc in a sleeve.

Just got Bringing Out the Dead and this little gem of a movie called Arizona Dream from amazon. See Arizona Dream (on VHS) even if you can find it anywhere, it's so fucking good. If your even remotely a Johnny Depp fan (or Vincent Gallo for that matter), you must see it. You can get it relatively cheap off of amazon if you buy it used, you won't regret it. It's funny and crazy and just perfect, it's a favorite.

Sort of - it's pretty much the trailer you've seen with a "special edition dvd coming soon" tag at the end...nothing special. But that's enough to hope I guess.

Holy shiznits, I had no idea The Hospital came out.  Am I correct in assuming it's feature-less and an MGM cheapie?

Yeah, it's movie only, but very inexpensive. I got mine for under $10.

Thanks man, I just happened to be watching Taxi Driver the other week and noticed how unbelievably adorable she was, just doing nothing, sitting there, doing whatever. It's really amazing how beautiful she is.

But to not chat too idly, I got this yesterday, and I love the movie even more now:

From www.DavisDVD.com

Four great Criterion titles go out of print on December 31st. The last chance to own Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious, Rebecca, Spellbound and Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs is nearly at hand. Get 'em while you can, cause once there gone they're gone.

Three of the Five discs in the Wrong Men Notorious Women box set are going OOP, so I'm guessing the set will also go OOP.

I kinda want the Alien set, but then I kinda wonder if it's for me. I mean, I only really love the first one and the fourth one. The other two are probably not owners for me. Are these discs available separately, or at least a decent transfer?

I'm not buying myself any more DVDs between now and Xmas. Every penny is going towards being Santa Claus for my ever-expanding family (I'm an uncle now!). Criterion is unleashing a deluge in February, though, not to mention the Bergman box and Blow-Up, so I'll be back in the game by then.

American Psycho isn't really that bad.  The book's amazing, much more so than the movie, but as ive stated before, book and adaptation should stand alone.  And as just a film, american psycho isn't bad.  

I haven't seen 25th hour  :shock:

The Rules of Attraction is horrendous and boring.

American Psycho is crap.
It's mildly humorous at best (yes, the Huey Lewis stuff was funny).

25th Hour is awesome

....my sentiments exactly!  i think if i understood wtf really happened in the end, i might like it a little more.  and yes, 25th hour is awesome!  worth the price just for the f-you montage alone!  i'm amped now to check out more spike lee films.  i don't believe i've seen any.

Neither have I, and I agree completely. I hate Rules of Attraction. American Psycho, I appreciate individual parts of it more than the whole itself. Each scene has good merits, but put em together and it kinda fails. I still think its a great satire, the business card scene is great, Walking on Sunshine, "Don't just stare at it, eat it"...all really great. I think it took me a few viewings to grow and like it more. And I just ignore the ending, I never liked it.

i think i could say the same thing about rules of attraction.  i thought there were some great parts, like the suicide and the trip to europe and so on. but what should have been a simple story of a threeway love triangle turned into a jumbled mess.  could've done without the trip to the hospital where the guy thinks hes od-ing, and the second trip to the drug dealers house.  out of curiosity, what didn't you like about it?  most people i talk to think its trying to be too flashy but i don't agree. flashys good in my book.

the book is soooo much better. i'm curious to see the film again, cuz i've only seen it once and it was a while ago.

a question:

in the book, sean and paul actually do have sex a repeated number of times. but in the movie, if i remember correctly, paul has a daydream about bringing sean to his room and they kiss, and that's it. i don't get why they didn't include that subplot in the film.

It's ambiguous whose character in the book is telling the truth or whose character is imagining it all.  

The only way I could think of doing this on-screen would be how they told the story in "Rashomon," but that really would be out of place in the movie.  The scene where Paul masturbates is more of a homage to the novel's ambiguousness (if that's a word).

i dont feel i need to defend myself but for arguments sake i will

I havent purchased a DVD in a long time because i put so many on my wish list for Christmas and i dont want to double buy.  I heard Blockbuster was havingh a sale so i went and checked it out.  I couldnt buy many films so i had to focus on ones not on wish list.

it was buy 2 get 1 free so (i saw wrong turn in theatres and thought it was alright at best) but i have had a thing for Eliza for quite some time and it was prev, veiwed on sale so i got that, plus biodome which was like 10 and then the AMC documentary was free.

If you're a fan of the "Apes" movies, then yes. But the crappy thing is afterwards they came out with a better behind the scenes bonus disc than the one in this box set, and in Feb., they are rereleasing a 35th Anniversary Edition of the first "Apes" movie:

On February 3rd, Fox Home Entertainment will release a new 35th Anniversary Edition of the 1968 classic Planet of the Apes. What can fans expect this go-round? How about separate 4:3 full screen and (at last) a new 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen versions, each with a Dolby Digital 5.1 remix and so many extras it takes two discs to hold it all: two audio commentaries with Roddy McDowell, Natalie Trundy, Kim Hunter and effects artist John Chambers, plus a second commentary/isolated score with composer Jerry Goldsmith, a text commentary by Eric Greene, the "Behind The Planet Of The Apes" documentary, exclusive Roddy McDowall home movies, rare dailies and outtakes, the featurettes "A Look Behind The Planet Of The Apes," "Don Taylor Directs Escape from the Planet of the Apes," "J. Lee Thompson Directs Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" and the original EPK, multiple still galleries including photos, production art and film reviews, and trailers for all of the Apes flicks. Retail is $26.95.

My first contribution to this thread:

Only 5.99, plus it had a big effect on me when it first came out, and the long last shot is just beautiful. The main reason I picked it up now is because I'm about to start shooting a conversation piece and want to watch as many examples as possible.

What film is it you speak of, as I can't see the image on my computer... I get the famous red x in a box that says image beside it.  Most of them I do see, some I do not. :(

I think all the different versions of Dogville (except the bare-bones ones that came out months ago) circulating throughout Europe and Asia have the same features.  The difference is in the Korean release, which is a) extremely limited and b) comes with ALL this stuff... enormous booklet, giftset, etc. for something like $30.  I have my eyes on that one.

anyway, I bought You Can Count on Me and Clueless for $9.99 a piece.  I love after christmas/holiday sales.

Post by: analogzombie on January 05, 2004, 10:28:11 PM
to be honest I don't know. I keep hearing it's the best out of the 3 follow-ups I ordered it as a blind buy b/c I kept hearing that it's better than Sister Street FIghter and way better than Street Fighter's Last Revenge. plus this release is letterboxed and with english subtitles i think. Oh, and the fact that is was only $5.89 I'll let you know how it stacks up to the first one.  :wink:

ok, now I really am broke but after watching Tokyo Drifter last night I couldn't help myself

IMO it's Boyle's best, even better than Trainspotting. Can't remember how it opens though.

As far as Return of the Street Fighter, If The Street Fighter is a 10 and Last Revenge of the Street Fighter is a 0, then ROTSF would get a 7. it's a little cheesier and more mainstream than the original but still packs a lot of great fights and attitude. And it has the ebst eyeballs popping out of head scene ever.

It's well worth it. Probably my second favorite Kurosawa now, right after High and Low.

I just saw it and it fucking crushed me.  Tokyo Story is a work of pure genius and is, alongside Kurosawa's Ikiru, the greatest Japanese films... no, fuck that, one of the greatest films ever made (Ikiru included).  This is an essential for anyone and everyone, the perfect remedy for the "wretched excess" (Friedkin, Decade Under the Influence.... i love that term) in cinema today.  Ozu implements a style so mind-bogglingly simple yet MUCH more effective than just about any other stylistic choice I've ever seen.  Ozu offers in Tokyo Story (my first experience with him) one of the most beautifully observant works ever put on film, whose influence is very clear in the works of Ozu worshippers like Wim Wenders and Jim Jarmusch (others include Aki Kaurismaki, Hou Hsiao Hsien and Claire Denis but I haven't seen their films... yet).  People will lead you to believe that this is just a stellar exploration of family, which it most definitely is.  But the film holds within it the very geography of life, perfectly mapped and brilliantly illustrated.

Simply put, Tokyo Story is a masterpiece.  An absolute masterpiece.  I can't wait to revisit it (which will probably be tomorrow... and I still have six blind buys to go through).

I'm not that familiar with Ozu, but I've known for a long time that he's one of the giants of Japanese cinema.  I'm a Kurosawa enthusiast and after seeing Tokyo Story, I feel comfortable in saying that Ozu is in every way Kurosawa's equal.

Annie Hall ($12.99)

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00005ATQD.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Eyes Wide Shut ($14.99) Figured it was about time I bought this one.  I just hope they never release some super-duper new box set of his films.  Knock on wood.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00005JKJG.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Storytelling ($19.99)  Solondz's best.  Satire at its finest.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0000AKY7F.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
A Decade Under the Influence ($19.99)  This was a blind buy, but I love certain documentaries, especially ones about film, and it's at least three hours long, so I figure it'll be worth it.  I hope.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00005T30L.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Ghost World ($14.99) Scarlett Johansson and Thora Birch are two of the most beautiful women ever, not to mention they can act their asses off.

Merry Christmas to me.  I had a $25 gift card, and Borders was running a "Buy four, get one free" make-your-own-DVD-box-set special, so I got all this for under $50.  :-D  There were so many titles I put back, though, for later.  So many movies, so little cash.

And thanks to samsong's raving review of Tokyo Story, I'm gonna bump that one up in my Netflix queue.  Hope it's great.

he was originally a producer or an exec producer or something because supposedly eli roth is his 'protegee' or something.  but then they thought the movie stood on its own well enough that they didnt need to tag it as a 'david lynch production' to sell the film.  something like that, mac can help probably.

ah, no  , but glad you brought that up.  :? . i remember reading  an interview with Shigeru "Mario Bros" Miyamoto where he said that he took his inspiration out of movies like Amelie and a   Japanese film that translated to something like "The postman in the mountains"    . I haven't found out which film is it...  any one?

It's a Chinese film called 'Postmen in the Mountians". I think this is it:
 http://www.hkflix.com/xq/asp/filmID.632/qx/details.htm

The Chinese title is: "Na shan na ren gou" it's from 1999 check www.allmovie.com for 'Postemen in the mountains"

Some of the early works of Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale) are pretty insane and making their way to dvd (Blackmail is My Life, Mansion of the Black Rose).  I have a VHS of Black Lizard which is just a truly bizarre howler.  So bad, so weird, and so wonderful (the lead is a transvestite, and in one scene he impersonates a man-- so follow me here, a guy impersonates a woman impersonating a man!?  John Waters would be proud).

ok, I'm going to watch the Bergman titles today, so I'll give ya a quick impression afterwards. And I love that Doniel box set. 'Love on the Run' is very sub-standard and 'Bed and Board' is just ok, but the box as a whole is wonderful. All the extras make up for the dip in the series. Can anyone recommend which dvd version of 'Breathless' is worth buying?

I watched the extreme channel the other day and caught some street skating, i was quite impressed. so i thought I’d check out some more. During my research i came across this DVD directed by Spike Jones. from what i read its considered one of the very best in the genre.
Could not find it any cheaper than £35 in the UK quick search later Found it for under £8 delivered from the US! I love the interweb :kiss:

more randomly purchased skate stuff!

I haven't seen YEAH RIGHT YET, but it's gotta be good if it's a GIRL vid. Mouse is only available on vhs. Girl's first video, GOLDFISH is also on vhs, but I'm not sure if it's directed by Spike. Chocolate's first vid LAS NUEVE VIDAS DE PACO is also directed by Spike.

I'm not really into the whole skate thing anymore, but I just got REALLY SORRY, a FLIP dvd. It comes with the original SORRY that was never released on dvd.

eS's MENIKMATI is great, and look out for their new one coming out (soon?). I heard PJ LADD'S WONERFUL HORRIBLE LIFE is great, but I haven't seen it. Hope that helps a bit.

And I fucking love that Stanley (UHF) banner!

Just got back from an impulse buying frenzy at Best Buy.  I went there to ... I forget now ... oh yeah, to see if they could fix an old TV, check out their car CD changers, and see if they had The Critic on DVD, and I ended up buying seven other things.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000083C6W.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Futurama, Vol. 1 ($19.99) - Yep, you read that right.  Couldn't pass that up at such a great deal.  Besides, I've wanted it for a while.  So underrated.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000059HAP.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
The Truth about Cats and Dogs ($5.99) - Found this in Best Buy's equivalent of the bargain bin.  Such a shame.  Loved this when I first saw it back in, '95, I think it was.  Janeane Garofalo is so cute, and well, yeah, that's about it.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00002ND79.01.LZZZZZZZ.gif)
Forget Paris ($5.99) - This too was in the bin.  Don't know why.  It's a perfectly decent, funny film, even if it could be considered When Harry Met Sally... lite.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000065U36.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Orange County ($9.99) - Don't shoot!  There's just something about Jack Black and movies about writing that I'm drawn to.  And this one is definitely fun.  I saw it in theatres back in January 2002, and it's one of the movies that first started getting me really interested in movies, along with A Beautiful Mind and Vanilla Sky.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00003CXIP.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Stand by Me ($14.99) - I know ebeaman (and others) hate this one, but I'm drawn to it.  Besides, I think it can show aspiring filmmakers what and what not to do as far as movies about kids these ages go, because it does do a lot wrong, and a lot right.  That, and my brother is on a Kiefer Sutherland kick since his obsession with 24 began, so I thought I'd show him some flicks he's been in.

Which leads me to...

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0780622553.01.LZZZZZZZ.gif)
Dark City ($14.99) - A blind buy.  I'm kicking myself because it's $9.97 at Amazon.com, but I guess the great deal on Futurama balances things out nicely.  I've heard great things about this film, and since there's a commentary from Ebert, I'm guessing it's well worth the money.

And last, but not least...

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00005JKJA.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Mulholland Dr. ($9.99) - Yeah, yeah, shocker, I know.  But I said I'd give this movie another shot, and I was mesmerized by the first two hours even if I despised the last thirty minutes.  But at $9.99, who could pass up a deal like that?

Yes, its terrible.  Chances are, Lost in Translation will win a few awards and then they'll just rerelease it with a special edition this summer.

I think I'm addicted to buying DVD's that are good deals. I just bought Dances With Wolves SE for 8.25. It was a used copy but in near perfect condition. I also bought at FYE a used The Third Man for 2 dollars. and a new Reefer Madness for 3.99.

I bought both, though I have yet to look at American Splendor's DVD since I only had time to watch LIT before writing a damn essay. I have no real complaints about the LIT DVD, personally. The video is near perfect, and while a review I read said the audio was too harsh on the music and too quiet on the dialogue at parts, I never noticed any bugs with it. I will say I wish they had taken out the DTS track and instead put more features on it. I thought it was overall a nice DVD. And I think the lock things are pretty neat. But is it true that you can't skip all those fucking previews at the beginning? I watched them all the first time through, but I'm not wiling to again....there must be some way around it!

EDIT: here's the review of the website I like to read DVD reviews from. He gave the DVD an 8 of 10...not bad at all. http://dvd.ign.com/articles/489/489848p1.html

I know. I probably will. I like both those actors too much to not revisit it.


It's just those problems I have, the scenes that stick out as ruining the movie for me: the sleeping with the lounge singer scene, and every scene with the over-the-top dumb blonde. Numero uno was just too cliche and cheap, and the latter was blatantly a revenge thing.

But I will rewatch, to be sure...

But Mod (and all other AS haters) you folks should give it another try, too.
Title: Re: I Just Bought...
Post by: godardian on February 04, 2004, 04:09:35 PM
I truly and thoroughly enjoyed both. It's not too often you have a year with two completely distinct, individually standout comedies (well, using that description loosely). And I think they're each incredibly charming in their own ways.

I guess I saw the dumb-blonde in LIT less as a pure revenge thing as just poking fun of what passes for personality in the movie biz... Ribisi in a way, too. I know Copolla has survived the hipster and showbiz scenes, so she probably has some inside background and has met these people as we see them. She insists neither of those characters were necessarily personal, but for me, whether they are or aren't, they do work in the movie.

il posto
naked kiss
coup de torchon
for a total of $140

Plus:
Swimming Pool
Lost in Translation
Love Liza
American Splendor
Capturing the Friedmans
Thirteen
Rabbit-Proof Fence
total=$50

The latter 5 are "back-ups." Out of these 13, the only one I've seen is Love Liza. I'm not sure about LIT, it doesn't look like it's as much of a masterpiece to me as most of you and the critics make it out to be. I might just make a back up of that one too and get something else. But i do love scarlett, so...yeah I'll just keep it I guess.

Yep, that's for sure. Especially with me since I take forever to get around to watching them.

I bought Salesman close to a year ago and I don't even think it's been out of its case. Same with about half of my Criterions. If you look at my dvd collection (above a couple posts) I'd say over half are blind buys. I was never a huge movie nerd until I got a dvdplayer 2 or 3 years back, and the rest is history...

That's actually really encouraging that having a DVD player has broadened and intensified your love of film... video was a step back for cinephilia, but DVD is shaping up to be a huge step forward. Doesn't seem to be keeping people out of the cinemas any more than video did (or TV before it), either.

Also, DVD is revolutionizing what films get made. There is no longer a sole dependence on box office revenue to determine if a film is successful. This opens up a whole new platform for films like City of God or Lost in Translation. Films that make the limited release circuit for about a year gaining momentum, and the release on dvd. It's like using the box office as a marketing tool for its home release. by building word of mouth for such a long time, you end up with a whole bunch of people clamoring to see your film. A film that may not have played in their area.

Definitely. It's great for my my newfound love of film, but it's devastating to my bank account. Gotta take the good with the bad, I suppose.
If it weren't for dvds, I wouldn't have encountered the classics that Criterion has put out, and those have led to other film discoveries, most of which I had never even heard of. I kinda worked backwards from Pulp Fiction/Dogs/Boogie Nights/Goodfellas, etc. and now I'm learning to appreciate older cinema much more than I used to. It has definitely broadened my horizons.
And it hasn't kept me out of the theater either. I saw 21 Grams 3 goddamn times. Going to see Cidade de Deus tomorrow again. I just hope they haven't cut it from the original release.

Famous last words

The popularity of directors' commentaries on DVDs inspires Rob Brydon's latest comedy, in which, as Peter De Lane, he immodestly describes his work. But judging by the competition, it's no work of fiction, says Phelim O'Neill

Saturday February 7, 2004


Conan The Barbarian To hear a commentary track by one of the world's biggest stars on one of their key, breakthrough films sounds like a surefire winner. How could listening to such insight fail to be fascinating? Simple. When that star is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Despite allegedly charging a considerable fee for recording his musings, he seems to have done no research or preparation, choosing instead to merely describe what's occurring on screen in the most basic, Austrian-accented terms. "This is where I steal the sword," Arnie informs us when Conan steals a sword. "Now I clean off the dirt," as Conan cleans the sword. "Here I am running." Etc, etc.

Planet Of The Apes Tim Burton's "re-imagining" of the old classic raised many questions, most of which concerned the baffling ending where Marky Mark Wahlberg escapes the monkey bunch only to crash-land back on an Earth inexplicably overrun by apes. No critic or audience member has ever managed to decipher this denouement, which seems to be the random work of apes with typewriters, halted long before they arrived at Macbeth. Perhaps the director has the answer? Out of a sea of "ums" and "ahs" comes this fractured piece of grammar: "There's less logic to exactly know what he's going back to." If you don't know, just say so.

Bats As the title strongly suggests, this is a film about, yes, bats. Not a good film, mind, but a cheap and cheerful horror about genetically modified bats. If you watch it at all, you do so for the bat attacks. Simple. If you listen to the commentary, you'd expect it to be about bats too. But it's not. The star of the film, Lou Diamond Phillips, is convinced the audience is there solely to witness the intense and nuanced performances only a Lou Diamond can deliver. So Lou prattles on at length about how he turned his role as a small-town sheriff into a living, breathing, fully-dimensional entity. How? By choosing a big hat and demanding he gets to continually smoke cigars. "The more you got to know him there was this fascinating character, you know, the love of opera and his sense of humour. He's not just a superhero chasing the bats." That precious attitude is why you're still in films with names like Bats, Lou.

Dog Soldiers To prevent actors getting too far up themselves on a commentary, it seems a good idea to get a bunch of them together and ply them with booze. Plenty of booze. No way any of them are going to start banging on about "motivation" and "character arcs" when surrounded by a half-cut selection of their peers. OK, so it's not particularly informative, and as it progresses the accents become thicker and more slurred ("We finished early and they said, 'Is there anything else you'd like to do?' Why not pack a werewolf head with blood and explosives and blow the shit out of it at high speed?"). But it's certainly fun and one of the few commentaries that sounds like it could spill out into a pub car park after the film has ended.

Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones This one removes thesps from the equation altogether. Probably a good thing too, as there can't be many interesting or amusing anecdotes to regale folk with when your job entails spouting quasi-mystical nonsense in front of a blue screen. More than likely, you'd want to forget it. So George Lucas is joined by some of his technical crew. And what a lively bunch they are too. Plenty of chatter about "textural distinctions", "sound contrasts" and the already overused acronym CGI is given a right pummelling. With in-jokes revealed such as the unspottable TIE Fighters inserted into heavy spaceship traffic, you get the impression that you're listening to people who are overworked yet still seem to have far too much time on their hands. Attack Of The Drones.

The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Rings A pair of costumiers spent almost four years knitting chainmail for the armour for this series, resulting in their fingerprints being worn away. No one should have to do that. More importantly, no one should have to hear about it. The overstuffed DVDs drench you in facts and figures that only men who live with their mums will give a damn about. The extended director's cut gives you four commentaries, involving over 30 speakers for the entire 208-minute running time, all delivered in an adenoidal Kiwi whine. See, you can't even begin to describe it without resorting to trainspotterish statistics. Does anyone really need to know how many eggs the caterers got through each day? OK... it's 1,460.

The Shining Of course there will always be film fans bemoaning the fact that there will never be a commentary track from many of the legendary film names. You'll never hear one from Lean, Hitchcock, Ford, Kubrick... oh, hang on, there is a Kubrick commentary. Not Stanley, though, but Vivian, one of his well-mannered daughters. At an age when most of us were still being sent to our rooms, 17-year-old Vivian was given a small camera by her dad and asked to make a documentary on his multi-million dollar horror movie. As well as giving a personal, human take on a publicity-shy director deified beyond all proportion, she also provides facts on fake snow and the door-smashing prowess of trained firefighter Jack Nicholson. All done with the voice of a slightly forgetful housewife. A classic.

Basic Instinct You can, of course, have a commentary by a fan. There are sites on the internet full of these, but they're less common on released discs. This has one though, by someone who calls the film "one of my favourite works of art". Who could hold this muddled, sensationalist thriller in such high regard? Feminist firebrand Camille Paglia, of course. For highly entertaining fast-talker Camille, every frame is loaded with skewed gender dynamics and emasculated male bravado. Her verdict on the star: "As alluring as any great goddess of Hollywood cinema, but at the same time it seems like she's had a transplant of a male brain, a male tongue and, in certain ways, a male penis." Is this film the most daring and important sexual role reversal experiment in mainstream cinema or simply an opportunity to freeze-frame on Sharon Stone's penis? Why it's both, of course.

Der Golem Some films were never intended to have commentaries. Silent era movies were never intended to have any sound other than the theatre hall organist gamely trying to keep up with the projected image. But why should they be excused when there are always plummy-voiced academics willing to step into the fray to over-enunciate any foreign words in a manner that says, "Oh, yes, I can be pretentious in more than one language!" and to deliver such needlessly flowery phrases as "the doorways suggest nothing less than gaping maws and shrieking gullets". Shut your shrieking gullet, professor, nobody's listening.

Mulholland Drive Where most commentaries deliver, at great length, answers to questions no one will ever pose, this film has a surfeit of queries and conundrums with no answers or solutions in sight. Crediting the audience with intelligence? It'll never catch on.

I love this one. I'm a lapsed Paglian, and she's been quite an idol of mine from time to time. However, with all her wonderful ideas and articulation and personality, she has got the worst taste in, particularly, music, but her movie-taste is terrible from time to time, too. She wrote a great book-length essay on The Birds that's pretty much more worth your time than the film itself...

Hm, yes that's true. I was being easy on him since he bought a shit load of DVDs. But yes, the double disc set's version is the definitive one and well worth the money.

Here I go again:

Modern Times
Virgin Suicides
Ghost World
Homegrown
State and Main
Salo  :twisted:
The Believer
Igby goes down
Chinatown
Sexy Beast
Bringing out the Dead
Talk to Her
DAncer in the Dark (from what I've seen of this I don't like it at all, which leaves me in the minority on these boards, but before i go badmouthing that fat fuck LVT, I better watch this one all the way through. And who knows, maybe i'll end up liking it)

All for a grand total of $12.75!  :wink:

Morvern Callar

I wanted to see that so bad when it was at the local arthouse.  Couldn't get my lazy ass to go.  It sounded so good.  Who wouldn't want to watch a film about a girl who takes credit for her boyfriend's book after he kills himself?  I think it was godardian who mentioned he really liked it.  Could be misremembering things, though.

Wild strawberries?

Wanted to see this for a while.  Winter Light was so boring, though, so that turned me off to the (real) Berg for a while.  I guess you really have to be in the mood for a movie like that.  Persona is where it's really at, though.  Doubt anything can top that.  Oh, and how could one forget The Seventh Seal?
Title: Re: I Just Bought...
Post by: You Never Got Me Down Ray on February 09, 2004, 08:33:35 PM
Thanks Onomatopoeia. The only Bergman I have seen is The Seventh Seal, and I was thoroughly unimpressed by it. Wild Strawberries seems to be more to my liking, but I still feel I'll really need to be in the mood to appreciate it fully.

Nope, that was me. So cool Ray bought that one, too (the rest of his are excellent, as well- not a bad one in the bunch, except I haven't seen Crash  :oops: ).

You should really see Callar, Ono. In fact, I'd recommend of either of Lynne Ramsay's films- Ratcatcher and that one- to anyone here. They're very much in the Terence Malick/David Gordon Green mold, very visual.

Yes, I might have a hard time with those accents. Ratcatcher would have been near impossible for me without subtitles.

I assume it has both versions of Crash, but I'm not sure if it's encoded with both full versions or if they just pop in a few extra scenes for the unrated version. It's like storytelling where you pick which version and they are on the same side of the disc. I'm looking forward to this one.

I definitely agree about the Ramsey/Green Comparison, Ratcatcher very much reminded me of George Washington, and I love them both. And thanks for the mini Ruling Class review, just what I needed. It sounds fucking hilarious. Not too much "musical" though right?

Anyone seen Coup de Grace? :?:

Probably my favorite Bergman film.  I think if I were to suggest one Bergman film to someone that would be it.  I have enjoyed all the Bergman films I've seen but that is my favorite.  It's the most watchable, it's still very moving but not as painful as Cries and Whispers, as weird as Persona or as prophetic as Seventh Seal.

I plan to watch Country Priest and Maitresse both sometime this weekend. I've pretty much gone through my entire Criterion backlog (!!!). It's taken months and months.

An e-mail I received from a friend (http://confessions123.blogspot.com/) re: Maitresse:

"It’s got some truly squirm-inducing scenes of s&m. Be warned, when you think it won’t be as graphic as it looks like it could be, it is! It’s a strange film looking at strange psychology, and it’s not shy about it."

sorry the last pic is so big  :oops:

i got the newer dvds b/c this store rents new releases, since they were closing those were for sale too. but they are pristine dvds, no security tape or store logo on them or anything, the cases are also mint. They might as well be new. A great haul!

today the local 'going out of business' Wherehouse Music cut their prices on new stuff again. That, combined with having a friend that works there meant I got all this neat junk for about $200.

Yeah, this is why I'm not ordering it from Amazon.com (and having it ship to Canada). The majority of those are available from Kino in definitive prints. Potemkin will be released within a year by Criterion under Eisenstein's Silent Film box set.

The main page (and Barnes and Nobles, whose price is 80.99) have it releasing 2/24/04.  

When I ordered it, it estimated a ship date of March 26th.
seems like they would have caught on by now.

I got Gosford Park for under $10 at Costco.  It struck me as pretty cheap so I looked it up online, and it's over $20 on Amazon.  Good deal, I guess.  I liked it in theaters but now I'm just totally in love with this movie!

I also ordered Traffic - Criterion Edition.  That should come pretty soon.  I just like listening to Soderbergh talk.  His commentary on The Limey was friggin' legendarily weird!

seriously man. I must admit I know a couple people who work there so they discoutned them even more than the sale prices. The original sale prices were $5 per single dvd, $15 for Shogun, $8 for Holy Grail $8 for futurama, and $7 for Space Ghost. I ended up getting the single dvds for $3 each and about %20 off the sale discounted sale price of the others. right place, right time. I went about 3 hours before they were closing for good and they kept doing extra % off every hour. lucky me :)

i should also add that they are used, perfect condition but used. Original used prices were $10 for singles $30 for shogun etc..

they've been doing the going out of business sale for 2 weeks, and then undercut their sale prices even more the other day. i tell ya, I don't know if I can go back to paying regular prices for dvds. i just wish they had of had some Criterions.

Not too much at all actually, 21 dollars and some cents with only a little competition bidding wise if I remember correctly. I'd definitely keep an eye on ebay and also amazon (who can have a great used-dvd system depending on what dvd's your talking about) and you should find a copy for as much if not maybe a little less than what I payed in no time. I didn't come across too many expensive prices at all for PLF.

I used to have one too but when you're talking $3 vs $20, and the only difference between them is that the wrapper is off of the $3 ones, hell I ain't prejudiced!

Your Friends and Neighbors ($14.99) - I've heard great things about Neil LaBute.  Netflix doesn't have this one so I thought, "what the hell."  I love simple little films like these that you could watch over and over again.  Hope this one fits the bill.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00006ADFY.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Swingers ($12.99) - I wasn't expecting much at all when I first rented this, but it really surprised me.  It's probably one of my favorite comedies, so it's about time I picked it up.  Highly recommended.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0792841387.01.LZZZZZZZ.gif)
Killer's Kiss ($12.99) - Kubrick's second film.  Only 67 minutes.  Can't wait to see where things started for him.

I was seriously eyeing Schizopolis, Leaving Las Vegas, Last Tango in Paris, and 25th Hour, but I can't spend $36 on a blind buy (Schizo), or $26 on 25th Hour, no matter how great it is.  And the other two are just too depressing for now.  Maybe later.

it's good. transfer is razor sharp. and there's a good 1 hour+ documentary that's quite informative. i have yet to listen to the commentary but ridley's are always nice, and ted griffin is pretty funny. (there's a funny part in the docummentary when he's all like "yeah i was excited to finally work with ridley until i found out we'd be shooting in l.a. I mean, this guy has shot in morocco, florence, maltla, and all these exotic places, and the one time i get to work with him, we're shooting in the san fernando-fucking valley." hahah.

here's a question for yah; they manage to pack said one hour docummentary, a brilliant transfer, a trailer, and a commentary all on one disc; meanwhile PDL takes up two just for a damn commercial.

what are the folks at warner bros. doing that sony doesn't know about?  hmmm?

PDL has a DTS track that takes up a lot of disc space and could suffer the image transfer.

1.) ebert's remarks are ridiculous
2.)  Gene is very muched missed.. :(

The batteries on my mouse are failing, so I won't bother to dig up covershots:

Blow-Up
Annie Hall
Midnight Cowboy
Schindler's List

When each of those is firmly placed on my shelf, there'll be exactly a hundred DVDs in my collection. Though I always wanted to buy a special DVD for that number, so I'm thinking of giving away Speed to my brother, so I'll still be at 99, then buying the Kubrick set as my DVD (set) number one hundred.

I have neither seen nor heard of Nuts in May. The earliest Leigh I've seen is High Hopes, I think... how do the early ones differ from the later ones? I find Naked to be his most exemplary film, but I haven't seen one I haven't really liked...

Naked Lunch is in many ways my favorite Cronenberg movie. It's got Judy Davis! That was a great year for her- Barton Fink, too!

Not being an LVT fan, I still blind bought Dogville. For all you fans who might not know, the Korean 2 disc special edition is Region ALL. I paid $23 for it.

I got Pierrot le Fou, Narc, The Wall, City of God (regions 2 & 3), My Own Private Idaho, and a bunch more I can't think of right now. Currently I'm seeking out a Region 2 Short Cuts, but the only one on ebay started at $30 and the seller seemed sheisty.

I also just bought a Sony vx2100.  :-D

I heard about the same region 1 DVD thing, and I went to that same website and it really ticked me off that they would mis print something like that, but I calmed down and eventually found the one on ebay. First of all I want to tell you that I LOVE the movie and it wouldn't really matter what the transfer or sound or picture was as long as I could see it. If I had to give it a number from 1-10, I'd give it a 8 but then again maybe I'm being generous since I adore the film.

Sorry about my tardiness.

Meantime isn't bad, but it isn't great. The reason I didn't love it was because I couldn't really understand what was coming out of their royal English mouths. Tim Roth does a good job as the introverted young man, and you can see that Gary Oldman is just warming up for his future roles. It's about working class Brits, and their frustrations about work and family. I only wish I could understand what they were saying!

This is the US version of the film. The rumor is that the 2-disc (maybe in October) will have the Director's Cut and European Version (the Dario Argento cut). But even if all of what is included here is double-dipped, at $13 it's not that big a deal to buy.

I love Colbert from the Daily Show -- I'm a huge fan of the Kids in the Hall, Monty Python, and SCTV (a tv series that no one on Xixax seems to care about), so is this worth getting for me?

It is a great read, so i wanted to buy these next. They have been on my list, but like i'm sure most of you know, other things come out, and you end up with little money. Then they showed a repeat episode on comedy central the other day, the one with the blind football player, and i went directly from there and bought it.

I have not had time to watch them though. But just from watching that one episode, i can say this is worth getting

Okay, straight from the Anchor Bay website:

DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) - MULTI-DISC SET
There have been a few folks asking about this set, and soon we will be revealing the details of what promises to be the most extensive edition of any title in Anchor Bay's history!  The release is planned for September, and you can expect multiple versions of the film as well as new commentary tracks and interviews galore.  Much more TBA!

never seen it either but according to Harry at AICN it's "One of the greatest horror films of all time. Made in 1964 and has influenced everyone from William Friedkin on THE EXORCIST to Guillermo Del Toro and a ton of horror filmmakers in-between. This is truly one of the great horror films left undiscovered by around 95% of Horror fans. Criterion coming out with this DVD is providing us with the best transfer available on the face of the planet and a DVD box that I want a one-sheet of, it’s so nice. A sincerely brilliant work of suspense, terror, madness and horror!"        thats enough to get me to see it, but you dont like horror movies so i doubt that helps much.

hey thats from the whole 5.00 boxset debacle?  youll have to let us know how the transfer etc. is on that bastard.  like cinephile mentioned kino seemed to have put out the 'definitive' editions of some of these, so i wonder what the deal is on this one?


..i found it fine to me....its nothing glorious like a criterion or lynch's  flawless restoration of eraserhead..but its well worth the $5  for me...i say go for it if you want to save some cash....but i haven't seen other transfers though so i couldn't give you a comparative example...

but my version  comes w/a collectable poster... :-D .


EDIT:..no extras ..but a snazzy menue screen.

godardian you knew about the limited edition boxset that was available not too long ago, right?  i really wanted to pick one up but no one's selling anymore on ebay.

i need to see more Hou. I've only seen Millennium Mambo which I love to pieces... have you seen it?  and where do you suggest i start when it comes to Hou Hsiao-hsien?

Those are the only two I've seen, I think... so I'm no expect. Of those two, I'd say Flowers of Shanghai.  

His name is pronounced "Who Show Seen." In case anyone was wondering... I had to be told that.

The NW Film Center in Portland had a retrospective of his work, which is where I first heard of him, a few years back.

P.S.  I had no idea about the box set...  :(

BAH.  At a screening of Kill Bill I went to, Tarantino (he attended) told us that after Volume II is released, he's going to do what was recently done for Once Upon a Time in America and cut both volumes together and re-edit here and there to form what will be the ultimate version of Kill Bill, complete and as he originally envisioned.  He also said he planned to load up the DVD with awesome special features.  So all of you who like to go pre-order happy, I don't think I need to do any more convincing as to why you shouldn't for Kill Bill.

i intend to buy that copy as well...i've stated this before, i don't really care all that much about the dvd as long as i have the movie....sure that super volume we get in the future will be awesome and i will buy, but i don't wanna just rent this over and over when i wanna watch it before that volume comes out....besides, my dad paid for it anyways  :)

It's very good... I watched it over six nights as recommended by Peter Cowie in the video essay on disc 3, just because that seemed to replicate the "original" more closely that way and also because 5 1/2 hours of dissolution and shattered dreams and expectations could be grueling... it was sometimes hard not to go on to the next one, though...

Go ($6.99) - Say what you want about Pulp Fiction rip-offs, but this is just a fun movie.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0790734702.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil ($6.99) - I don't know, I'm not sure it's too popular here, but I really liked it.  It was a little long, but definitely atmospheric, Spacey was great, and Cusack wasn't awful.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/6305929718.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
White Men Can't Jump ($9.99) - Home to classic lines such as "We goin' sizzler!", interesting takes on the poetry of Keats, and vegetables that start with Q.

(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0000ALFVD.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)
A Mighty Wind ($14.99) - Christopher Guest's best yet, IMO.  I bought it for the songs, pretty much.

I love it when the bargain bin has movies that by most reasonable logic shouldn't be there.

They did that stuff all the time at the video store I used to work at. Some crackhead would steal a bunch of dvd's from the mall and the same day would come to our store and trade them in for cash. They would all be unopened and most of them were released that same day.

I can't beat that personally but my friend bought Freaks and Geeks on sale and The Office Season 2 for free.  It beeped when it was scanned but rang up as $0.  The cashier was none the wiser.

Well, take a look at this silogism :

1. No one has ever died of buying DVD's. Therefore, buying DVD's doesn't kill.

2. What doesn't kills me just makes me stronger.

Buying DVD's makes you stronger.

I won't be. And I oh so want to see everyone who bought Kill Bill post that same Amazon.com (or whatever DVD cover pic).

how could i resist!

Hahah.. that's okay. I've been influenced by meatwad, godardian, slomb, and ghostboy to purchase the Strangers With Candy DVDs. And slomb single-handedly forced me to get the Upright Citizens Brigade DVD too.


I was just indulging in some SWC this weekend (I've seen every episode dozens of times by now, but they seem to just keep getting funnier). Hope you're enjoying 'em.

Upright Citizens Brigade is on my list... I really like Amy Poehler and am glad at least she got picked up for SNL (on which I think she shines most any time she's onscreen).

BTW, I never post a single item here unless it's not only ordered and on its way, but actually been couriered through the mails and arrived into my hot little hand. No cheating from me... and I wouldn't think that's the usual thing here at all; it actually makes no sense to presume so. I think if people were just posting what they wished they had, every one of us would be posting dozens of titles a day.

no, i thought siliasruby was faking it for a while, then i stopped caring.. ppl tend to lie about other things instead, especially what they did as a kid. i've only posted my purchases in this thread once, and that's cos i've only bought dvds once in a whole year. i think myxomatosis, like myself, is just jealous that everyone gets to hav all this stuff.. Sunrise made me jealous, to name a recent occurence.

i will admit to a little cheating here.  i will usually post when i've ordered an item after the thrill of the spend, and not a few days/weeks later when it arrives.  ill be happy to take picture of the items when they get here for anyone who doubts my large purchase.

Side note, at Best Buy, KILL BILL IS ONLY $9.99 when you buy another Tarantino flick.  That is, it's two for $20.  I highly recommend you check this out if you want Kill Bill and are lacking in the other Tarantino flicks milieu.  This is a great deal, considering how expensive Pulp Fiction, and especially Jackie Brown, were at one time.

I bet that includes shipping though.  Either way, I was happy, because I was dreading paying $35.99 for it, and saw it at Best Buy for $32.99, and then somehow, magically, that price got reduced to $29.99 at the cash register.  Nothing I can do about that now, though, but thanks for the info.

It's only $20 for Kill Bill and Res. Dogs.

Pulp and Jackie are not part of that deal. Although they are on sale for $15.99 each.

I don't know if you had seen this show when it was on, but like S.W.C and UCB, i can't praise this enough. Judd Apatow does not get the credit he deserves, and after watching all these episodes, it makes me excited for the movie he is doing with Steve Carell.


It was indeed a really great show. Great characters, great soundtrack and great period feel. I'd stop whatever I was doing to watch this every sunday afternoon when it was aired here.

I saw enough of the episodes to make me really look forward to seeing them all in order... I am a fan of the talent involved, especially Miguel Arteta and Mike White.

eBay.  Took a chance on some guy, like I said, from Hong Kong.  He had a good rating and it got here pretty quickly.  Breillat excites me period, 'cause she's a female director (a rarity) who actually makes good films that aren't all black and white (an even bigger rarity).  Got this one 'cause a couple of my friends wanted to see it, too.  So we're probably gonna watch it together.  Hopefully I can find some more of her stuff.  Other films of hers, I think, are more readily available.

Jaws is one of my favorite movies of all time, and is one film I could watch over and over and never tire of. It's just too bad the DVD doesn't carry the entire 2 hour documentary that was on the laserdisc because there is a wealth of more info, tidbits and ancedotes that were cut.

I'm jealous of you having Persona, SNT! I ordered my box weeks ago and it's taking its fucking sweet time arriving to me. I sent an impatient e-mail to my online shop today asking where the hell it is. This Bergman box has been one delay after another, and I'm about ready to stop tapping my foot and glancing at my watch and sighing loudly and start getting rude and aggressive.

Hahaha, don't worry, I'm so backed up on dvd watching, I won't get to it until next month anyway. You'll probably see it before me.



Where do you order from? Usually places are exceptionally quick, unless the case of this sort of thing, where there was a bizarre recall. Is it part of the box? Cos it seems here that it was being marketed as The Bergman box set, AND Persona on its own. Yet none of the other dvds on their own. I guess what I mean is that I haven't seen the box set here yet, so that's probably a pretty good reason why it's been slowed down for you.

Have you seen Persona before? If no, I envy your virgin eyes...

I'm really, really hoping it's not some horrible deal where Persona is part of the box (which it is) and then there's a "special" stand-alone version.  The one in the box better be the same as the one sold separately, or I'm gonna flip out.

Good to hear. Thanks!

It's one of the few Fassbinders I've never seen... that, along with In A Year with 13 Moons (from last week) are blind buys... but you know, they're Fassbinder. I'm slowly, steadily, systematically blind-buying pretty much of all of his.

The Last Samurai is a terrible, terrible film.  Besides Ken Watanabe's Mifune-esque performance, there is absolutely nothing redeeming about it.

fine.

John Toll's cinematography is consistently good and there are occassional shots of striking beauty but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's amazing, especially since this is a guy who's definitely capable of better (ie The Thin Red Line).  One thing's for sure it isn't good enough to come near saving the movie.

has anybody ever noticed the gay subtext of this film? they mention it in the freddy encyclopedia bonus disc, how all these gay men's magazines reviewed the movie saying it's all about a boy coming out of the closet. i rewatched it the other day, and i can't say i disagree. jesse is the gay kid, freddy represents jesse's homosexuality - the evil demon that he's not allowed to talk about for fear they'll think he's crazy. in this movie, there are several scenes taking place in the boys locker room and lots of scenes with guys not wearing shirts (unlike typical horror flicks which show lots of female chest). during one scene, jesse even goes to a leather bar where he runs into his gym teacher who, as punishment, makes jesse take laps. in the gym showers, freddy possesses jesse's body, ties the gym teacher up, and kills him. symbolically, i suppose murder represents manlove. anyway, when jesse is finally about to get some action with a girl at a party, he begins to change into freddy and can't perform, so he leaves her high and dry. instead, jesse goes to his hunky friend's house and says he has to sleep in this guy's room b/c he is afraid of himself. of course, jesse turns into freddy and "kills" his friend.

it all adds up... except for the end, where freddy takes over completely and just kills EVERYBODY in town, except for jesse's girlfriend, who drives the demon out of jesse's body. i have no idea what that would represent. possibly, lisa (the "girlfriend") is really just a postive female character that helps jesse realize that freddy (jesse's homosexuality) is not this horrible affliction - jesse just had to come to terms with it. or the theory is complete bullshit and everybody involved in the film just accidentally gave the movie these homoerotic undertones. whatever...

i came up with an analysis that proves child's play is a communist propoganda movie, if anybody would like to hear that one...

i'm not sure i understand your question completely but i give it a try. as far as i know there are eight seperate movies in this box. the covers were posted three pages back. and all of them has audio commentaries, docs and shit. the box was out of print because of huge demand and universal waited for the release of van helsing to re-release to box. (aha, bingo!) and i'm eternally grateful for this because these movies rock. is this the answer you wanted? cheers.

cronopio, you MUST comment on Tulse Luper as soon as you can (in the Greenaway thread, I guess).  It's definitely gotta be one of the most intriguing movies I've read about in the last year, but I'd probably category its buzz with that of the Brown Bunny as most pretentious.  Though I can't really stand Greenaway, his ideas for films always fascinate.  Can't wait to see if this thing ever makes it to the US.

Frailty ($9.99) and Das Boot The Director's Cut ($12.99). I know the original 293 minute uncut version of Das Boot comes out on June 1st but I wanted this one because of the director's commentary


So I guess no Superbit for you.

Yeah, I know. I was debating about that but ultimately I got the one with the one with the commentary. Maybe later I'll get the superbit.

Probably. I haven't seen the old transfer, but I'm betting the new one is subsantially better. As well as a shitload of brand new special features.

I have 45 minutes left to watch in it but so far, the new transfer is beautiful and the "new" scenes fit well for the most part; there's nothing as potentially polarizing as the French Plantation scene in Apocalypse Now Redux.  The biggest complaint I have is the overdubbing for the new scenes; Eli Wallach's overdubs sound terrible. You can hear that he's 40 years older. Clint's are good though.  And they could have found someone better to overdub Lee Van Cleef.  They went on about how good this guy was in one of the featurettes but it didn't sound too much like LVC to me. But still, none of this takes away from the overall BADASSEDNESS of the film.

*raises hand*

Pretty much everyone here has seen Cidade de deus, and besides that, people are into a lot more foreign films than you would first think.  Off the top of my head?  Them Russians make some pretty good ones, y'know?
Title: Re: I Just Bought...
Post by: rustinglass on May 23, 2004, 11:23:50 AM
Cidade de deus is brazillian.

To keep to the thread's subject, I bought the portuguese collectors edition of city of god and it's sweet:
-commentary
-making of
- actor's workshop
-short film "Palace II"
- funny little cartoon clip
- trailers, production notes and all that crap....

Great. Is it a region free player?

Also, a general question - do these progressive scan players improve performance for dual-layer format DVDs?  I have only one set that I know of: Sports Night.  And in my DVD player, sometimes, there is this annoying, brief pause while the DVD is being scanned.  Is that what the progressive scan means/is designed to improve?

Barnes & Noble had a sale, over at the end of June, buy two get one free, so I figured I'd blind buy the movies I've had a curious attraction to for some inexplicable reason. It was probably the covers and the things I've read about them here.
$85, got Caligari for free. After watching Solaris and Caligari, it's clear that I desperately need more Tarkovsky and silent films. Still haven't watched The Lower Depths.

Isn't the fact that it is "rough to watch" what makes it a "great great documentary"? I mean, wouldn't you want to own a film that moved you in some strong way and study how it was possible to do so? I found "Magdalene Sisters" a lot 'rougher' to watch but you better believe I picked that DVD up on the morning it was released.

Plus "Freedmans" was the same price to buy as if I would have rented it a couple times.

this is just a guess, but its possible that they are in order of the way in which they were produced and not the order in which they aired.  like, the premiere was on a saturday and it was the Cat and the Claw episode with catwoman, sunday night was the On Leather Wings and Mon-Fri was another slew of episodes before Cat and the Claw pt. 2 concluded that next saturday.  so, i think they were aired way out of order (not that there was ever a storyline that lasted more than 2 or 3 episodes).

So matt, you can buy the MGM release and sell the Robocop for $200 on eBay, just like a friend of mine bought the original 400 Blows Criterion just a couple of months before the Doinel box came out.

HaHa. The set is awesome. It also comes with a blindfold and large poster of Elizabeth Berkley so you can play "Pin-The-Pasties-On-The-Showgirl." What else is funny is that MGM doesn't want to advocate drinking or alcoholism, so they have production stills with drinking games on the back to be played with "NON-ALCOHOLIC beverages" even though the set comes with shot glasses.

Yeah, but I've been hearing about this MGM release for 6 months, and it was what I was waiting for.  But I just happened to see this in the store and so... why not?  The MGM release currently out is listed as Unrated at Amazon, but further research makes it seem as though that is the R-Rated cut, and that the Unrated Cut has just never been delivered by MGM.

Either way, I'm wasn't sure, and I was tired of waiting to see, so I was glad to see this in the store.

EDIT:  Further research makes it seem as though the RoboCop Box Set has the unrated cut.  And I'm also not sure if it has the same commentary as on the Criterion (that may be Criterion only).

If I'm faced with a choice between 2 movies I like, the extras will be the deciding factor.  Example:  Cabin Fever vs 21 Grams...I went with Cabin Fever b/c of the load of extras.

Now, sometimes I'll find something cheaper than it should be and I'll buy it.  Example:  Found Down by Law for $15, although I have never seen it, I bought it.

Indeed an interesting question. I don't buy films that i don't like. period. I just don't have money for it. As for the extras..... everybody likes them, I would buy a 2-disc edition of a film I like instead of a single disc edition, depending on the price difference and how much I like the movie.

..........always a good question   mod-age....
a month ago i  would tell you  that its all about the extras....now i am not so sure..........the case in point would be mystic  river................while i  think the film is phucking killer and i had the choice of buying the 3disc or th ebones.............i  choose the bones...........that  was the first time that i had doen that.........nornally i would  :roll:  at a bones edition.......but now its basically this:
if i like the film well enogu to shell out the money for the extras.......and/or if its only available in a SE then i will get it regardless..........as long as i like the film.........................

* but as for crackterions, if i buy one i   want it to be pimped out........since they are the pinnacle of dvds...........i want it to be tasty.......
i will never buy that se7en-samu4ai crackterion..................i  will hold out for something better..........as rar as  i  can remember the select crackertions i own are pimped out ...................

I feel that I should clarify that I LOVE Robocop.  I've wanted to buy Robocop for about a year but it was just sorta in the back of my mind.  I saw this at the store and decided to buy it.

I also don't buy movies that I don't love.  I really don't think about cover art, rareness, or extras when buying a DVD... except for maybe the Lord of the Rings Extended series.  The extra footage is great and I'd probably buy that over the theatrical cut anyway, but the hours of superb extras really just make it a must buy.  But still the main motivation for buying them would be because I love the movie.

it's obvious sum ppl here just buy whatever gets released, others buy cos it says "criterion" on the cover.

i only buy what i will watch over and over again, and other things i like slightly less if they're really cheap.

but to see ppl buy new shitty releases at full price, it's ridiculous.

Saw this in a shabby DVD shop and bought it immediately.

I didn't watch most of the extras yet, but I tried to watch the "Behind the Scenes" thing and turned it off after five minutes of listening to Tarantino go, "so, hmmmm, the movie I saw was cool, all right? You know. But this chick, cool, cool, very cool, all right, you know, hmmm..."

So, anyway. The McDonald's cover sucks but it's great to finally have the movie in my collection.

That's pretty early, even for a shabby DVD shop.  But yeah sometimes they sell or rent out these movies early, it's neat.

this brings up an interesting point.  do people even buy movies anymore just because they like them?  or are we so distracted by the extras or the coverart or the rareness of it that we are filling up our shelves with movies that might not be there otherwise.

Rick Sands thanks you for something he likes to call "multiple bites at the apple.  and you multiply this internationally"...

actually whats worse than that cover is the little box you can keep both in.  the front is the pretty cool teaser but the photoshopped heads on the back is the worst thing i've ever seen in my life.  really, couldnt they spend more than an hour throwing something together.  i mean, i know its free and everything, but wouldnt you be ashamed to put your name/brand on something that looked like a piece of shit?

He did a little bit of everything... he contributed heavily to the development of several projects (specifically "DinoCroc 2", coming soon), as well as some script reading and personal assistant-type stuff.

Corman is his idol, so the entire summer consisted of him creaming his pants every time Corman addressed him personally.

Yeah, but not all the way. I am actually going to get dogville as well, but in a different region, because the region 1 version doesn't have the documentary.

my cover art looks different.  it has catherine deneuve's face in seven different poses from the handle of a blade to the tip, and it says 'the nightmare world of a virgin's dreams becomes the sreen's shocking reality!'

and underneath in big scary red letters it says 'REPULSION', and there is an eyeball in the R.  good stuff

I've been asking for it for a while and I was going to buy the region 2 version anyway. Also I'm not really scared of her as much as I have a flaw of repressing my anger. Even if I really wanted it back that bad, which at one point I did, I don't even know where her bf lives, so that is out of the question.

It all depends on what you call "good". It's definitely different and a very interestin thriller/drama...but it all depends on what you are interested in. Read the amazon.com description, but I think it is a great film.

hey,

to my amazement i just found and bought the criterion edition "silence of the lambs" at my local hollywood video -- and for only $12.99!!!  true, it is used, but really, you still can't beat that price.  

i went in to just rent something, but as it turns out every single video and dvd to rent (save for new releases) were available for sale.  i was in abit of a daze to tell you the truth.  pretty good prices too, especially on older films in the 'classics' section; a lot of good buys.

i also ordered "slacker" yesterday, so that's coming...

exciting stuff.

Damn the local merchants and their Criterion-awareness!  A while ago I saw 2 used copies of Criterion SOTL for about $30, and yesterday the bookstore I went to had Black Narcissus for $30 and Unbearable Lightness of Being for $40. ULB had a sticker saying "OOP" on it.  But they had about 1000 copies of Identity.

The news ones at The Mill Store on the Warner Bros. lot. (Fox's and Columbia's studio stores are just as good with their prices, plus on the Sony lot you can buy Sony products - DVD players, TVs, MP3 players - for really, really cheap)

The used ones at Lovell's Records, Tapes and CDs in Whittier, CA.

Fantastic, it is the last great film from Hitchcock. Frenzy was actually his second to last film that he did make. It has all the great Hitchcock touches and more evident this time, is his black humor. It is also the first Hitchcock movie to get an R rating because of his take on sex and violence is much more brutal than anything he has done before that I have seen, and the cast is all British. Like all documentaries on the Hitchcock DVD's the doc on Frenzy is very informative. Definitely worth renting when you get the chance. As far as Hitchcock goes, this is top notch, but the cover does suck.

Really? Best Buy was packin'.

Check it: I walked into Best Buy and there was this table set up with political books, CDs, movies, etc. Half were anti-Bush and some were Pro-Bush. A 17-ish gal and her beau walked over and she hissed, "What's all this dissing Bush stuff?" Then she picked up a Reagan DVD and said, "Now he was the BEST president."

I turned to her and smiled. "Heehee.i'macommunist" My momma always says it's pointless to get into an argument with someone like that.

I don't know. I never saw it in theaters, there is stuff in it that didn't hapeen until after the release so i think the new stuff is in it.

As for the south comment. I meant it as in the south is more for Bush than it is against him so of course there is going to be more 9/11 dvd's avalilable there then there would be in Massachusetts.

ah, ok, well that makes more sense. and ere' i dun tout yu was dissin' on my suthurn pride and all that bizness... haha

to tell the truth i'm kinda 9/11ed out. I saw it twice in theaters, by the second time I was completely bored stiff. I get it, Bush is a puppet of an evil, oil hungry, christian administration hellbent on spreading American Imperialism around the globe and 9/11 offered them an excuse to do so. got it. next.

Oh... you guys are gonna LOVE this!
Sources at 20th Century Fox have just confirmed with me that the long-awaited Office Space: Special Edition is finally a go! The studio and director Mike Judge are currently hard at work on the disc, which is tentatively planned for release in early 2005. There's no other details available at the moment (so don't ask - it's too early in the process), but the title IS finally coming and you can bet we'll keep you up to date on this as things progress.
How's that for a way to stave off a bad case of the Mondays?

Lots 'o' stuff, thanks to some unexpected bling and Blockbuster's ridiculous 8 dollar-trade-in-promotion (you wanna give me 8 bucks in credit for copies of crappy movies I got gratis?  Take 'em all!):

- Videodrome Criterion Collection (It's not Cronenberg's best movie by any means, but dammit, I can't stop watching it and obsessing over every strange bit.  Lots of wonderful features, including the uncut Videodrome torture tapes, which is cool or creepy depending on your character).
- Fahrenheit 9/11 (Liked it better than the first time I saw it, the bonus scenes are incredibly depressing)
- Night of the Living Dead (Fuck Mr. Cooper!)
- Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition (Holy God, could this be the most exhaustive dvd set ever created???  I mean every picture, poster, knick-nack, interview, commentary, alternate version you could ever imagine is on this thing.  Unbelievable.  If Anchor Bay ever releases another version of the movie, those responsible should take a shotgun blast to the face).
- Day of the Dead: 2 disc Divimax (I really like this movie more and more each time I see it.  Sure, the acting is stilted as all get out, but... BUB!  BUB!  BUB!)

Traffic-The Criterion Collection
I watch this many times on DVD, but I have never experienced the criterion Version of this movie, I hope I am in for a treat, as criterion, really does an excellent job with the releases. Anything I should look forward to on this specific DVD? Mac? Anyone?

There's a great editing demonstration with stephen mirrone commentary, plus some great sound design stuff.

Also a great demonstration on how the visuals were achieved.

The feature commentary with Sodebergh and Gaghan is very good too.

It's a sweet disc.

It's not that it's missing, Burton scrapped it entirely citing that it had nothing to do with Ed Wood or the movie itself. Fair enough, I probably wouldn't have cared for the extra anyway.

It's one of the best shows that was never given a chance, along the lines of Freaks and Geeks, Sports Night, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, My So-Called Life, and Wonderfalls.  Not that it has anything in common with those shows on an artistic level, it was just unceremoniously axed.

Post by: RegularKarate on October 20, 2004, 06:31:56 PM
I'd like to counter that by saying "no".

It wasn't that great.  Not to say it needed cancelling, it just most def is NOT equal to F&G or even Andy Richter (which was not as good as F&G).

It definitely could have gotten it's shit together to become a really good show, it just didn't get the time it needed.

Post by: ono on November 01, 2004, 08:52:20 PM
I went insane tonight and bought a bunch of DVDs.

Each for $1:
Dementia 13 by Francis Ford Coppola
Phantom Ship (1935)
The Brain That Wouldn't Die
Corpse Vanishes
The Terror
Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
House on Haunted Hill (1958)
The Ghoul

Best Buy was running some deal, selling all these movies in envelopes.  I don't know what the deal was, some association with Halloween, of course.  I figured it's as good as any to bone up on horror, though I don't expect any of them to be amazing.  FFC's Dementia 13, though, has interested me for a while, so I was happy to come across it.

Best Buy also had 2/$15, so I got:

My Girl - love, love, love this movie, have it on tape, figured why not get the DVD?
The Talented Mr. Ripley - blind buy
Titanic - only seen like 1/3 of it, figured I'd try again
School Ties - blind buy

Then I went to Borders, 'cause like I said, I'm insane (and I wanted to see if I could find the My So-Called Life DVD set 'cause I waited like a dumbass and now it's out of print and hard to find).  But there, they had $9.99 and 2/$20 sales with legitmately great movies in the piles.  I could've easily spent $500 tonight, but I showed restraint, and only got:

The Good Girl / Kissing Jessica Stein 2 Pack
Moulin Rouge! / All That Jazz 2 Pack -- really anticipating ATJ
The Majestic
Camp

All six of these, blind buys.  So all told, 18 movies, for a little over $100 dollars.  A good night.

ono, i thought you didnt like horror movies?  dementia 13 is pretty good but the dvd has a few horrible 'tracking' spots where the picture rolls a few times like they got it off a vhs.  brain that wouldnt die is cool, i have that.  and house on haunted hill is pretty good.
