What was the last DVD you bought and why?

Tools    








Picked up Napoleon (1927) on Laserdisc, Coppola won't release a Blu-ray version because the rights and what not





Another film that didn't get a DVD release Gandahar Glen Close does the american voice over work in the lead little pricey but I think it has value and it's animated which tends to look good on Laserdisc.

I went to The Beat Goes On today and got some new used movies. I got:

blu ray:
Nerve
Think Like a Man
Trouble With the Curve
3 Mel Brooks favourites (includes Spaceballs, Young Frankenstein, and Robin Hood Men in Tights)

dvd:
Don Knotts reluctant hero pack (includes The Ghost and Mr Chicken, The Reluctant Astronaut, The Shakiest Gun in the West, The Love God?)



Eleven movies discounted at Walgreens worked out to just under $55. So $5 per movie, which is not bad especially considering the first one is from the Criterion Collection. Reached my photos limit, but I also bought American Pastoral.

The mall reopened here today and I went and bought 3 film noir blu ray box sets. I got the Kino Lorber film noir dark side of cinema volumes 2, 3, and 4 sets today.



The Killer (Woo, 1989) because it's not streaming anywhere and it's a must-own. It's not the ultra-rare Criterion one, unfortunately.
I didn't buy it, though, I got it from SwapADVD, a service that lets you exchange DVDs with other members. Their inventory isn't the best - it's not the best place to look for rarities - but sometimes, you'll get lucky.

An excellent find Sir, a fabulous piece of cinematic entertainment .... though swapping four thousand bills for just the one doesn't really seem like the best deal in the world to me.
