    Merry Christmas everyone. Suprised a thread like this hasn't been started yet. So...list which discs you got [​IMG] And hardware, if you were lucky enough to get some upgrades. My MGM Midnite Movies collection just grew...
    Count Yorga Vampire
    Dunwich Horror, The
    Empire of the Ants
    IT! The Terror from Beyond Space
    Man From Planet X, The
    Mars Needs Women
    Monster that Challenged the World, The
    Morons from Outerspace
    People that Time Forgot, the
    Planet of the Vampires
    Reptilicus
    Strange Invaders
    Theater of Blood
    Twice Told Tales
    War Gods of the Deep
    And the 3 that aren't Midnite Movies...
    Spaceballs
    Toys
    Willow
    These were from my imediate family. Was suprised how many I got, and I still have my extended family to exchange with. I haven't seen any of the Midnite Movies except Empire of the Ants, which I'll spin first. Followed by Planet of the Vampires, Count Yorga Vampire, War Gods of the Deep and The Dunwich Horror. Gonna have to find some way to work them all in with my TV stuff now. Oh well, I'm not complaining.
    Everyone have a very safe and enjoyable day.
    Merry Christmas.

    Well, I only got 3 DVD's
    Pearl Harbor
    Jurassic Park 3
    Green Day: International Supervideos
    MY mom admitted PH was a freebe and could get the money back if I so desired. (She didn't like the movie too much.) [​IMG]
    On the upside, I got $650 because my family doesn't kno which movies to get me so they got me money instead. I love shopping for DVDs and they know it. [​IMG]

    However, I also got a Gamecube. Super Money Ball is just too much fun!

We also each got today a $20 Best Buy gift card to spend. Here is what me, my wife (Stephanie), and my almost-4-year-old son Stpehen got on DVD for Christmas!:

    Stephanie's List:

    • Casablanca

    • Pete's Dragon
    • Walt Disney Treasures: Silly Symphonies*
    • Walt Disney Treasures: Micky Mouse In Living Color*
    • Walt Disney Treasures: Davey Crockett*
    • Walt Disney Treasures: DisneyLand U.S.A.*
    * = Items I perhaps have mentioned before that were bought, but were put under the tree to wait for Christmas
    ** = The only item we got 2 copies of this year! I gave it to my wife, and she gave it to me! Oh, well! [​IMG]

    And, finally, I'll mention that Gord Lacey sent my family the Canadian release of Beast Wars: Transformers - Classic Episodes Vol. 1 as a combo Christmas gift/Thank-You present for helping out a bit on his web site (linked in my sig). I can't really list it under any one family member, since we all like it. Especially my son, who wants to view it 24/7. [​IMG] I guess I'll be ordering Vol. 2 in the series in time for his birthday!
    Not a bad haul, eh? Over 50 discs on 37 SKUs. A few of them are MAR, but what can you say when it's a gift? [​IMG]

    All the Ingmar Bergman DVDs currently available in R1 and R2 (about 7 of them), and also Fanny and Alexander, From the Life of Marionnettes and Wild Strawberries when they come out in the next couple of months. Before anyone asks, I really did want them!

    Oh yes, and I've the promise of Mannequin when it comes out in a couple of days (I know on any objective terms, anyone with any pretence of being sentient shouldn't admit this, but it's one of those turkeys which I find endearing, like Plan 9 From Outer Space).
