Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'DVD' started by Bob clamer, Dec 28, 2005.
First on my list will be "Alien Nation: The Complete Series"
I already spent Christmas money / money from returns on:
The Lost Boys (got the old version and upgraded it to the new SE)
King Kong Collection (the Best Buy limited edition)
I still have $9 left to spend. It will either go towards a cheap movie (perhaps it's finally time to pick up Laura!) or be used to other money for something bigger. Not sure yet.
I'd be more than happy to take any excess off your hands!
I traded THE ISLAND (which I'd already bought the date of release) for TOY STORY 2: Special Edition; I'm also spending some X-Mas cash on the Collector's Box for the FRIENDS DVDs Seasons 1-10 and on an import DVD of U2's "All Because of You" single...
SIN CITY: EXPANDED, UNCUT, UNRATED
The Sin City two disc set
Toy Story special edition

Daylight - yeah, I know, but it's a guilty pleasure. Here's hoping I still like it.
Star Wars Ep 3
And i am considering Wedding Crashers and 40 yar old virgn
I used a giftcard to pick up The Shield: Season Four. I was buying it either way but it was nice to save the cash.
Well, I bought a CD player for my car with the help of a Best Buy gift card, but with the remainder of the money I have until payday, I will probably buy:
Into the Blue
SeaQuest DSV: Season 1
The Shield: Season 4
Tracey Takes On: Season 1
WWE Survivor Series 2005
Toy Story 2 for me.
I ended up spending the $9 on Laura and Se7en. I guess I went a little over the $9 I had to spend, but Se7en Platinum was on sale for $12 and I couldn't resist. :b
The Black Hole
The wife isn't very happy with my picks...but it was MY gift certificate, dang it!
Also have a little cash and expect to hit the malls this weekend for a few more discs.
That brings up a question that I'd be interested in hearing the answer to:
With your Christmas 'proceeds', what DVD's will you buy that you normally wouldn't buy with your own money.
With the $100 Best Buy GC, $25 Meijer GC, and $20 cash I bought the following:
Sin City SE ($30)
Gilmore Girls Season 3 and 4 ($25 each)
Toy Story 2 SE ($15)
Simpsons Season 7 (regular box, not the Marge head) ($42)
"With your Christmas 'proceeds', what DVD's will you buy that you normally wouldn't buy with your own money".
Since I have a friend that works in my local video store I usually do not buy that many new releases since I get everything from him used at half the price of the new release price at a particular time of the month so I usually use gift certificates/money for box sets or releases that my local video store would not carry. He lets me come in and pick the best copies. Example: Wedding Crashers best price is $14.99, I'll get it for $7.00 when he can pull the copies to be sold. Done this for years and never had a bad copy.
I got a $25 gift [Walmart. UGGG!!] card from a relative. I am going to get either Nashville or Being There on DVD. How are the transfers [sound & picture] on these? Is Warners planning special edition of Being There? Would be nice! My other gift card is a $50 American Express gift card. That will be used on Feb 28th when that Dog Day Afternoon, Network, and All The President's Men box is released from Warners. Wow! What a Christmas!
Toy Story 2: Special Edition
It makes no difference to me. I buy the same things regardless of where the money comes from. The only time it would make a difference would be if it were a giftcard to a place with a very limited selection. But I'm having a hard time coming up with an example.
I went out last night with a list of about 30 titles. I found one of the titles on my list. In the process of looking, I found another title that I've never picked up at a price I couldn't refuse. But I would have eventually picked up both of them.
Typically I get gift cards to our local maga-mart (Fred Meyers for those in the Northwest). If they don't have what I want in their Home Electronics department, I use the card for groceries and spend the grocery money elsewhere.
Got a bit carried away in the post xmas sales:
V - the original mini series
Catch me if you can
Mr & Mrs Smith
Devils Rejects: Special Edition
Inside Deep Throat
Twilight Zone : Ulitimate Edition Season One
Brotherhood of the wolf
Sin City: Special Edition
Adam and Joe DVD
Didnt realise how many i'd bought until I listed them, and now have no idea when I will find the time to watch them!
About £125 all in, so not too bad.
