Would you believe it took me a trip to Canada to to buy Godzilla: King of the Monsters
? It's definitely not what I intended, but I stalled on the Best Buy steelbook and missed my chance as a result, so I was kind of waffling over when to get the standard edition. While I was away on vacation, I ended up in Walmart and couldn't resist checking out the video section. GKOTM was 20 CAD, so I figured that was the best price I'd see for a while.
Being in the mood, I also picked up the Back to the Future
digipak, which I think ended up being around the same price it would be in the States.
Of course these also arrived from Amazon. The Ultra Q
slipcover is, sadly, a bit bent out of shape at the top; but overall they're pretty snazzy releases. I look forward to watching them!
While I was out shopping the other day, I picked up these three. Stranger Things
has been tempting me sitting at $10 for probably MONTHS now; and having finally watched the first season recently, I went ahead and bit the bullet.
The two anime are blind buys; I've been doing that more with anime.
In the case of Penguin Highway
, I've greatly liked other adaptations of this author's work (Tatami Galaxy
, The Eccentric Family
, The Night Is Short
), so I figured it's a safe bet. I also just get a kick out of seeing semi-obscure titles like these in Target, of all places, so I spoke with my wallet.Satellite Girl
was sitting in a $5 Walmart bin, so I took pity on it. The synopsis sounds like a riot, too, so I'll probably watch it soon!
