What DVDs did you get for the Christmas?

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.

hehehe... we're so bourgeois...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

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.

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...
