There's a lot to look forward to in the months leading up to the end of this year. Every week or every other week something comes out that I have to own. And it gets worse, looks like, thanks to all the upcoming releases (not that I'm complaining).

This might be a fun thing to do. I'll list what I am most eagerly waiting for in the coming months, excluding stuff that we have no release dates on so far (Dances with Wolves, Back to the Future...).

1. Innerspace (don't laugh - but look at the features we're getting! and i've never seen it in widesceen)

2. Pulp Fiction/Jackie Brown (too bad there won't be a commentary on these two, but the other features more or less make up for that)

3. Beauty and the Beast (if this is anything like the Snow White disc - and it should be even more - it will be a feast)

4. This is a tie between Ed Wood and Speed (where are the special features on Ed Wood? Tim Burton always does commentaries on his films!)

5. Lord of the Rings (both the 2- and 4-disc versions for me... i wasn't totally blown away by it, but it's a good film nonetheless)

1. Lord if the Rings- I can't wait for the five disc box set! I'll probably rent the two-discer again and again till November.

2. UHF- I HAVE TO get this disc. I am anxiously awaiting my copy to arrive.

3. Near Dark- I haven't been able to find the copy I made of a VHS since I made it. I need this!

4. Simpsons Season 2- Damn you Fox! One release a year is driving me INSANE (or at least more so)!

5. Gremlins/Gremlins 2- For some reason I have this thing for horror/comedy movies.

TIE

5. Pulp Fiction/Jackie Brown- Any director with a giant forehead is great in my book. I'm also a little dissapointed that QT didn't do commentaries but it'll be great to have these.

As for movies with no release date yet:

Toxic Avenger 1-3 Box Set/Citizen Toxie

Death to Smoochie

Reservoir Dogs SE

Back to the Future Trilogy
