    I'm looking for a widescreen LD of Big Trouble in Little China. I have some odds and ends to offer as trades, or I'm willing to spend some money.

    Thanks!

    I have a copy. Where in Canada are you? T.O. Area?
    What do you have for trades?

    Yep, I'm in Toronto.

    What kind of stuff are you looking for?

    I have a Beatles appearance on Ready Steady Go I'd love to get rid of. And tons of other stuff. Let me know what you like and I'll make a list.

    Presently looking for
    DVDs
    Starship Troopers SE
    Blue Velvet SE

    Xbox Titles

    LD
    IJ and the temple of doom.

    I know these might seem specific or expensive (unbalanced trades) but we can involve cash to balance things out.

    OR

    I'm willing to accept cash.


    PS I have a few other LD titles I'm also no longer in need of.

    Conroy -- what other titles do you have that you want to get rid of? I'm always looking for more LDs. [​IMG]
    I have a pan&scan Temple of Doom I'd be willing to trade, if you'd want that. I'd trade it straight up for BTiLC, since my ToD is p&s. Any more acronyms I can throw in there?

    I live around Lawrence West station. I work in Oakville, but I'm sure we could figure out either a night or weekend meeting.

    You interested in that p&s Temple of Doom? Yeah, I know, p&s sucks. It was a gift.

    I finally found a widescreen Last Crusade -- I didn't buy it when it was new, and then I just could never find a copy at a reasonable price. Anyhow, a friend in Japan sent me one. Japanese subtitles, but on the lower letterbox bar, so no biggie.

    For some reason, I'm not the biggest Temple of Doom fan, aside from the spectacular opening sequence at the club.

    Are The Killer and Hard Boiled the CAVs or CLVs?

    I'd certainly be interested in James and the Giant Peach, A Clockwork Orange and maybe X-Files. What would you want for them? And what kind of stuff would you be looking for in the way of trades?

    Just looking around at the store here, I also seem to have aquired A River Runs Through It (widescreen), Far and Away (widescreen), Shattered (edit: NOT widescreen, sorry, thought it was. No wonder I've never watched the disc) and some episodes of The Monkees TV series.
    And a pile of movies from the 80s I've never heard of, all p&s. If you want me to list them, I will, but they seem pretty bottom of the barrel. For instance, there's Jack's Back, with James Spader, and something called Twisted Obsession with Jeff Goldblum. These are the things you accumulate when you buy someone's whole collection to get two discs. [​IMG]

    Oh, and I appear to have given away Jack's Back, starring James Spader. As I recall, I had a friend who was amused by the quote on the back cover that read The city's in chaos. The hookers are scared. or something like that, so I gave it to him.
