Title: What DVDs did you get for the Christmas?
Post by: Banky on December 03, 2003, 01:16:54 PM
Myabe this idea for a thread is a little premature, but i wanted to make a thread that people could list all the DVD's they receive as gifts.  I know that all of us have DVD's on our wish lists and this could be a place to put the ones you get whether they be good, or ones to take back.

I received Bruce Lee: The Master Collection for Christmas a few years ago.  I've bought more DVDs with money I've gotten for Christmas than I've received as gifts.

When my parents asked me what I wanted, I looked back on last year and thought of all the dvds I got and was like "Man, did I really need all those?" After giving them a list and buying myself some dvds, I've determined yes, yes I did need those.

What I'm Getting: The Third Man, Three Colors Trilogy, Ghostbusters, Psycho, Royal Tennenbaums, Bottle Rocket, Wrong Men and Notorious Women box set, Straw Dogs (which my mother had heard of, and actually loves, I was so shocked).

Hell no, that's what I meant by the work in progress part, I definitely will have to narrow it down quite a bit more than I already have.

The books I'll get no problem cause my mom loves to see me read...and the VHS' aren't that bad cause you can get them relatively cheap used on amazon...I might have to knock off 1 or 2 of them depending on availibility which I'm not sure if any of them or out of print or anything. And I'll more than likely have to knock off at least 5-6 of the dvd's too, depending on how much my aunts and grandma's are going to spend on me....and I'm cool with that, I'll get it all sooner or later.

XMAS is when I always ask the 'rents for box sets.  Last year I scored Band of Brothers and The Shield Season 1 (santa mistakenly stocked them at Borders early).  This year, I'm demanding the Criterion Hitchcock set (especially since 3 of them are going OOP).  That Alien box would be nice too.

absolutely, last year ET found it's way to my door.  this year, i don't think i really asked for any, just a bunch of criterion odd balls that i don't what to spend my own money on.  (damn that sounds bad, but i get them good presents too...)

Ebs, the Godard On Godard book is oop, I think....

it's damn good though, if you can find it.

Yeah, my list is sickly long. My Dad had to convert it to an Excel file to organize it. But I always tell relatives: just pick one small thing if you must buy me something, one dvd means a lot to me. And so I give them a nice, comprehensive list (a la ebeaman) to choose from...

I got the Hitchcock Criterion box for my brother and sister-in law, I'm getting The Two Towers SE for my partner, and... I think that's about it for the DVDs, actually.

I asked for things I'm reluctant to buy for myself, like the Fargo and Pulp Fiction SEs. I always hate to re-buy something that's already on my shelf.

LoL, I think he's an underappreciated comic, well not genius, but a really unique taste of humor. I actually got to see where his apartment was in NY, my friend said she says hey to him everyday while she walks to class.

I don't like receiving DVDs from people unless

a) they know me so well that they are able to pick something out that I most likely would have bought for myself, or

b) i specifically told them what to get me, which sucks because it's not really much of a surprise, which is unfortunate because that's kinda the fun of receiving gifts.

In the past I've gotten a movie i really didn't like, then sold it, then had to make up a lie when the person came over and, having perused my dvd shelf, was curious as to why the movie they got me wasn't there.

The person giving that gift was not in the right gift-giving spirit, then. Primary gifts should always be something you know or at least believe the person will want. Taste-imposition gifts should only be supplementary, if at all.

That's godardian etiquette rule number 451, and you can take it to the bank.
Title: Re: What DVDs did you get for the Christmas?
Post by: Slick Shoes on December 05, 2003, 12:38:17 PM
You're exactly right, Godardian. I think too many gifts are bought out of a sense of duty, which is sad, and Christmas is way too commercial.

dark star
down by law
drop dead fred
five corners
the lion king
little monsters

I still actually might be able to get The Art of Buster Keaton box set from my grandma who I really haven't talked to about it yet....it depends if we can find it around here. Either way, whether I get that or not, I'd say this is the best stuff I could possibly get right now, I fucking worked on this list harder than ever and I couldn't be happier with it, it is just awesome, you gotta admit. The best part is, it only came to $366.00 including shipping! Amazon rules!!!

I second that, this is something I've thought about doing just to mix it up a little...rather than just having my mom buy them all then get all the money from people...duplicates would just suck though.

EDIT - shit! sorry for double posting! I meant to copy it and paste it into my other thread.

I know for sure I've got the Kubrick box set coming, even though I own 2001, eyes wide shot, and clockwork orange already...



i know im getting the sopranos 4th season box set because I crawled up under the tree, took out some scissors, cut a small slit at the corner, i then carefully peeled back the wrapping as any skilled bomb technician would... and there it was... i then promptly scotched it back up, and hopped up on my feet, as my sister walked by...

Only problem, Seabiscuit is Full Screen.  Bleh.  But that's easily fixable.  I'm not sure where he got the idea that I'd want that movie (though I am interested in seeing it).  Came with a book, too.  It's the thought that counts.

Straw Dogs is one of three Peckinpah films that I've seen and is, in my opinion, his best work.  It's engulfing and incredibly well executed and features one of Dustin Hoffman's very best performances.  It's deeply thought provoking and disturbing as hell, demented and at the same time unsentimentally humane.  An incredible film to say the least... the DVD is one of Criterion's best releases to date and is one of my favorite DVDs.  In other words, get off your ass, stop walking passed it, and BUY IT.
Title: Re: What DVDs did you get for the Christmas?
Post by: Ghostboy on December 24, 2003, 11:34:50 PM
Straw Dogs is kinda like Irreversible, except a gazillion times better (and I liked Irreversible). The first time I saw it, I was convinced when the credits rolled that it was one of the five greatest movies ever made. Hyperbole, certainly, but it's definitely a great film. I don't know if this or The Wild Bunch is Pekinpah's best film, though -- I guess I'd have to say they're on par with each other, although I think if I was forced to I'd lean in favor of The Wild Bunch.

you all make very good points. but you see the ladiez i am after are the 19-22 year old college students who have heard of French New Wave, Truffaut and Godard, but aren't very familiar with them. In other words, pretentious cute young college girls. you know, the kind that major in photography and take existentialism as an elective.  :wink:

haha, not only are they amazing films but when the ladies come over and see this set they think I'm all sensitive and intelligent, double score ha!

Ha! I plan on spoiling myself with that tomorrow!
For today my true love gave to me:

Almost Famous: Untitled Bootleg
The Royal Tannenbaums
DMB Central Park
Mitch Hedberg: Mitch All Together

Rather lackluster compared to some others here, but it's better than what I had expected since I asked for none.

I got all of Peter Jackson's pre-LOTR films, minus The Frighteners and Forgotten Silver (which is out of print). Funny, I consider Dead Alive one of my favorite horror films and have bought it as a gift for others on two separate occasions, but still have never owned it myself until now.

I also got (via gift certificate and pre-ordering) the Criterion re-issue of Mon Oncle.

where do all of your friends/family buy the Criterion discs? my parents aren't too internet savvy, so i didn't get any of those.

Radiohead - Meeting People is Easy
Radiohead - 7 TV Commercials
Dawson Creek SEason ONe (same thing someone else said about this)
Best of Chris Farley
Ed Sullivan and the Beatles' performances
my mom didn't buy REM - In View because of the parental advisery sticker (i'm wondering why it has one in the first place?)

i'll probably pick up All the Real Girls and Band of Outsiders with some cash.

i rented a VHS of Straw Dogs and i didn't care too much for it. it's kinda like a Leone(film) set in modern times and i'd much rather have that or some  of the Eastwood films

My Life to Live is great to those who got it.

why and when are the Hitchcock Criterions going out of print?

 I also got a dvd player, how newbie of me. So I currently have two dvds. Does that make all you movie buffs sick? I'm going to do a huge dvd shop this week. What do you think are 5 dvds I should buy to start me off?

Schindler's List: Collector's Edition
3 Women
The Leopard
Rushmore
(I know, I'm a bit late on getting this... I feel really ashamed)
Return of the King: Extended Edition

I'll more than likely pick up a few more after having my juicy check cashed sometime next week.

Hahah. How did I know PTA would come into this. I would quite like to see Hard Eight, would probably have to be imported though.
 Boogie Nights just reminds me of watching sex scenes with my parents when I was 16 and being extremely uncomfortable about it.

 I definately want to get The Dreamers and Rushmore, and The Ice Storm.

This was only 13 bucks! I got it for free, because of the deal, but geez, wasn't this ranked as the best dvd release last year by some people?? Great price for a two disc.

I had to ask for really basic movies, or ones where I know my family might see the edition immediately, because even if I specify the particular edition, it sometimes gets lost, and I hate returning a gift.  Not such a bad turnout, though.

and *Batteries Not Included. Which was extremely enjoyable to revisit. I think its held up extremely well, especially for an 80's film. It just zips along, the effects are subtley intergrated and the score is really sweet, too.

you would've been the winner by an overwhelming margin, the people's champ, a classic underdog.. if it weren't for this last part.

these i picked up at Best Buy today with some xmas money for 19.99 each since i already have hand-me-downs of Seasons 1, 2, and 4. my 24 obsessed parents gave them to me after they had watched them and i have been meaning to start watching the show for a few years but had not gotten around to it.  i decided a few days ago i'd start in January and took it as an omen since the only two seasons i didnt have to watch were the only two seasons Best Buy had in stock.

and i bought these for my girlfriend...

she had talked about wanting to collect the entire series of X-Files for a long time since it's one of her favorite shows.  but the sets were always so damn expensive we hadn't even started collecting them until 2 years ago they started reducing the prices and we found Season 1 for $50.  but thanks to deepdiscounts recent sale on these i was able to pickup the remaining 8 seasons for $146.  IN-CREDIBLE.

dude, you're about to watch the greatest tv character ever. superior to david brent and i KNOW i said extras was superior to the office... the partridge thing IS true though.

next up on your list.. you'll need to see I'm Alan Partridge series 1 and 2.. which are the episodes that continue to follow the destruction of partridge's life.

i equate all partridge as the UK arrested development.. in that its a show where EVERY LINE is funny.

No joke. In my household, I don't get DVDs for films I like. I learned long ago that if the person buying you the DVD didn't like what you picked out, they weren't going to buy it for you, no matter what. Even my girlfriends never buy me films I like because they don't even know what they are. It was coincidence that I became midly obsessed with an old 60s show like this and my parents knew it and liked it too. Haha.

Still, very happy to have it.

my best friend last week was like, "i got you a GOOD gift." so i rush around buying a few more items to put into her gift box. all along thinking, i wonder what it could be? i mentioned to her about wanting the Wings of Desire Criterion. She mentioned buying Criterions for her boyfriend. I did tell her I was going to buy Last Days of Disco. She listened to me and retained this information. Or maybe she bought me one of the seasons of SNL that I don't have yet? hmmm, miss best friend, what did you get me?!!!!

Christmas Eve, I bought her AND her boyfriend a gift, thinking, "they got me something good, I better buy them both something." 

A STUPID CANDLE. A CANDLE, REALLY? maybe she was drunk when she said she bought me a good gift. of course she can buy her boyfriend criterions but not me? Hoes before bros, come on.

LG BD390
(haven't decided if I'm selling my Roku yet)

I know this is the DVD thread, but I love this player... makes me really want a 1080p set.  I just wish my surround system didn't make everything out of sync (I think this is the crappy surround system and not the player)... might have to sell that and get a new one.

MOVIES:

District 9
Dark Knight
Dark City
Dirty Harry
Star Trek
Superman
2001
Iron Man

Admittedly, I bought a good deal of these for myself with "Christmas money" (money I allowed myself to spend because it was Christmas)

She got me this, which doesn't apply to this thread, but is my favorite present of all, so I don't care:
