    Just curious about what people have grabbed lately.
    As for myself I picked up:
    House By The Cemetery (Anchor Bay)
    AENIGMA
    Yes I was in an Itailian gore mood.
    Foxy Brown
    Henry Rollins:Talking From the Box/Goes To London
    League of Gentlemen Series 1 (any idea when series 2 hits?)
    Dragon Fist
    You should see the difference between the Dragon Fist DVD and my old Seasonal VHS tape. It is pretty darn funny. It is nice to see this great old martial arts movie get a primo release in the states. CTHV has been doing a bang up job as late. Does anyone know where there might be a list of anymore upcoming Hong Kong flicks from Columbia? I didn't even know it was out. I ran across it and Fearless Hyena 1 & 2 at Best Buy.

    Picked up the following in HK:
    Final Fantasy
    Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
    Kiki's Delivery service (Japan Region2)
    Love Letter (Dir: Iwai Shunji, Japan Region 2)
    Now if I can only find the time to watch all the DVDs. I keep buying and not watching. Maybe 60% not watched from beginning to end.

    Easy Video had a "going out of business" sale so I purchased the following for $9.99 each:
    1. Ghost Dog
    2. Boys Don't Cry
    3. Hamlet (Modernized version)
    4. Thirteenth Floor
    5. Way of the Gun.
    My girlfriend surprised me this past Sunday with The Godfather Trilogy [​IMG] She's never seen them so it'll be an even bigger treat to watch.

    Ordered Charade - Criterion Collection online. Didn't receive it over the weekend, but I guess it counts as a weekend purchase nonetheless.

    Since I was working Saturday near a Best Buy I had to run in and pick up The Fifth Element Superbit. Incredible transfer, it smokes the Phantom Menace transfer by a mile!
    Within the last two weeks or so I've picked up Snow White, Teminator: SE, and Rush: Chronicles in addition to the 5E.
