rauldc14's DVD Collection

Tools    





Added to my Bond collection with Thunderball.
I'm waiting for the new Bond collection to be released later in the year, every Bond film on blu-ray, except Sky Fall obviously. I only have Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace on DVD, so will be a nice collection - even if it has Die Another Day in...

I added Lord of the Rings: Return of the King mainly because it was $3. Secondly it is a stunning film visually and it deserves a rewatch.



Keep on Rockin in the Free World
Forgot to say that I added Thor as well.
which edition? how are the special features?

Keep on Rockin in the Free World
I believe just the normal edition. I'm not sure that I have a copy that has special features.
I honestly cannot comprehend purchasing a DVD of a new flick without special features. Thats what torrents are for.



Finding Forrester
Mean Streets
Zodiac
21 Grams
Rocky
Zelig
Romancing The Stone
Wag The Dog
State Of Play (TV series)
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (film and/or tv series)
Barton Fink
Jacob's Ladder
The Big Lebowski
The Iron Giant
To Live And Die In L.A.
All About Eve
Harvey/Anatomy of a Murder/Rope
Manhatten Murder Mystery/Manhatten/Annie Hall/Everyone Say I Love You

Or, of course, you could just take a look at any of the films on my 100 list that you've yet to see.

An explosion a day keeps the Michaels at Bay.
I haven't bought a DVD in forever, aside from LOTR. Looking for suggestions once again please.


Have a look at page 16 of my reviews thread matey. There's a list of all the films I've done so far, plus two or three more reviews after that post... there might be something there you'd like.

I will say honeykid has a couple of decent ones in the above list. Zodiac and The Big Lebowski especially.

Well since I am getting married next year, I decided to add my fiancee's DVD to the main page as well. If anybody sees any good ones in that section let me know, though it looks somewhat rough lol.

There are some scoffy films in there. But I agree with the ones you stated above, as well as Howl's Moving Castle, possibly Avatar and Incredibles (haven't seen either), Sound of Music (it's pretty good, just long) and Polar Express. It just got to the point where I had to "merge" the collection. And in all fairness we've bought a lot of films together that I have just added into my pile.

Also went to Barnes for the 50% criterion collection sale. I wussed out and only bought Stagecoach, and then bought a Streetcar Named Desire. Looked like some good deals, just didn't know what ones to get. Any suggestions on some good criterions and maybe I'll make a return trip.



Oh there are indeed some fab ones in the list:

Hocus Pocus
Corpse Bride
Ponyo
Sherlock Holmes
The Incredibles
Bedknobs and Broomsticks
Howl's Moving Castle
Beetlejuice
