    It has been a slow day at work today so I decided to compile a wish list of DVD's to give to my wife in case she ever comes across any. She always mentions that she doesn't know which movies I want to buy. Well, this has turned from a short "wish" list to a "every single movie I can think of and have to have" list. And I'm sure I will be adding more. A couple on the list I already have but want to replace with the anamorphic version. Anyway, here it is, in no particular order.
    Do The Right Thing Criterion Edition
    Brazil Criterion Edition
    Traffic Criterion Edition
    The Last Temptation of Christ Criterion Edition
    Time Bandits Criterion Edition
    Se7en Platinum Edition
    Akira Limited Edition
    Princess Mononoke
    Ghost in the Shell
    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
    Bram Stoker’s Dracula

    Billy Elliot
    Leon: The Professional
    Snatch Special Edition
    Usual Suspects Special Edition
    Princess Bride Special Edition
    Near Dark

    Requiem for a Dream Director's Cut
    Taxi Driver Collector's Edition
    The Terminator Special Edition
    Total Recall Special Edition

    That's a pretty long list...

    I set up an Amazon.com wish list. Normally I use it to remind myself of a book, CD, or DVD I want but don't wish to buy right away for various reasons. My wife started using it to buy me Christmas and birthday presents because she knows it's a list of stuff I actually want.

    Having a long list doesn't mean you'll buy them all. I have a wishlist of 261 released items, 131 confirmed "coming soon" items (with release dates set), and another 84 items merely "planned" or "rumored" (no dates set). That's 476 DVD SKU's we want to buy here...and nowhere near enough funds to cover them all! [​IMG]

    I don't really keep a list. I'm more an impulse buyer. I scan the pre-order lists and decide at that moment. There are quite a few DVD's available that are films that I love and every once in a while, I will just buy one or two, but I don't have any set list for it. If I ever sat down and made such a list, I would probably pass out when it was finished.

    I don't have enough money to start making lists. Usually, maybe a dvd a week and it's usually a used or cheaper one.[​IMG]

    Actually, I've found it's more helpful to be married and have that double income, esp. when she earns a lot and you earn just a bit more than her. [​IMG]
    Almost as good as the spare change left over from when I was 21, earning a retail manager salary, and living at home with my folks...
