Has it really been 6+ months since I posted here?? I certainly haven't been slacking on my collection.

I've been grabbing a lot of anime lately (plus a little more Western stuff):
Spoiler Below:

I found these poor scifi souls in a Walmart bargain bin and promptly rescued them:

...Took advantage of the Criterion sale to grab some more eccentric titles for the shelf:

...And I CERTAINLY wasn't going to let those restocked Media Blasters titles pass me by!

(Also grabbed some other titles I needed too - not to mention that obscure little book that came out a while ago. Dunno, looked interesting. :wink:


While I was at it, I took a photo for my uncle of all my titles related to giant monsters so far:

Judging by your collection of giant monster related titles; if you need a short list item for a Christmas gift idea I recommend Warner's Special Effects Collection.

https://www.amazon.com/Special-Effects- ... B00ZJYVJUW

It's new HD transfers of Mighty Joe Young, Son of Kong, Them, and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. The movies are also available individually in standard blu-ray cases if you prefer.

Glad I had already paid for this before the "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" hit the fan.

No, my g/f got laid off last week, so my movie buying is going to be cut down immensely outside of things I already paid for.

my preorder on Amazon says Dec 12. Where did you order from and are they cheaper than/comparable to Amazon? ($22.89 for v2)

Rightstuf is shipping it now and it was $25 plus shipping.

Rightstuf actually ships compentently and I was able to pay for them instantly, so I wanted to go through them rather than a lousy service like Amazon despite having Prime.

I've been eyeballing that for a while now; I should probably pick it up with Flicker Alley's new release of The Lost World, not to mention some more Harryhausen films. I have surprisingly little of his work represented so far.

Recently I was pleasantly surprised to find GKids' new releases of Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke at my local Target for under $15 each. Naturally I grabbed them both, plus Disney's Signature edition of The Lion King for $19.99. Just the other day I found Bambi at Meijer for the same price, so I grabbed it, too. I don't have much Disney in my collection either.

Nothing spectacular, but got Wonder Woman, Spider-Man Homecoming & Cars 3 Blu rays all $7 each at Wal Mart. This is my first Black Friday Thursday evening actually being out in real time (I usually just wade through the leftover movies the next day) . It surprisingly was not that bad. I was able to get in and out and get everything I wanted in about 15 minuets. I mean granted I wasn't in line for any big ticket items, that was some craziness going on right there, glad I stayed away from there.

Also I'm still so happy that Space Ghost is getting a re-release in a couple of weeks, I have it pre-ordered.

I know I shouldn't have, but considering people actually buy pieces of card board for insane prices on ebay (BD slip cases), I've made quite a few dollars that I was able to justify buying these over the weekend:

Amazon lowered a lot of their prices on movies for the Black Friday weekend. I ordered BRDs of Wonder Woman, Baby Driver, Don't Breathe, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Power Rangers, and War for the Planet of the Apes all for about $50 with tax and free shipping.

I haven't even seen the latter two yet but since the BRDs are the price of a movie ticket, why not? I'm pretty damn confident in Apes after how great Rise and Dawn were, and if I don't like Power Rangers then I'll just give it to someone as a Christmas gift.

Some classic comedy & drama came in from Amazon last week:

...And these two were picked up at Meijer post-Black Friday for a grand total of nine dollars:

Well, since this week marks the end of the Criterion sale, I thought I would take advantage and buy the two most bizarre features (and ironically, both from 1977) that I have ever seen:

"House" is a quirky delight, while "Eraserhead" proved from the very beginning that David Lynch's idiosyncrasies weren't just limited to "Twin Peaks".

I love HOUSE so much. It's a really fun off the wall film with an interesting story and I like all the characters. That said, anyone who is expecting normal narrative structures might be disappointed as its a very weird and stylized film.
