    I'm just getting four films from that list (DAREDEVIL, THEY, SOLARIS, and NARC), but there will definitely be other titles that I'll be getting that month too.

    I'll probably get 4 of those and maybe 2 others, but nonetheless June is going to be expensive, as there are another half dozen catalog titles that I will most likely be picking up.

    June is actually going to be much cheaper than May for me. I have approximately 30 titles penciled in for May.

    I'm out of work right now, but I don't think that "Adaptation" is going to break the bank for me.

    I'm not buying any on Johnny's list. Animatrix is a rental, and Adaptation and The Pianist since I haven't seen those yet. Solaris and The Hours are possible buys, but unlikely.

    For the same time frame, my "must buys" are mostly TV shows:

    5/20 Sex in the City season 4 (for the gf, of course!)
    5/20 Barton Fink
    5/27 Throne of Blood
    6/03 South Park season 2
    6/03 The Ben Stiller Show
    6/10 Buffy season 4

    possible buys:
    6/03 Fame
    6/03 Midnight Run
    6/20 T2: Extreme Edition

    Personally the only one I will buy will be Jungle Book 2 but the rest will be the ones that fill the shelves & baskets at the likes of Walmart & not the back catalogue titles that are obviously much better films.

    Well I'll only be buying 2 of those on the original list. However, I will also be buying these in June:

    The Brady Bunch Movie
    A Very Brady Sequel
    The Circus
    City Lights
    Terminator 2 (SE)

    Overall, 7 dvds in a month isn't very busy for me at all, although there may be more to come than what's currently announced.
