    2001 is rapidly drawing to a close. I thought I'd bought my last dvd for the year, the wonderful Criterion Edition of Frederico Fellini's 8 1/2. A fine way to end 2001, or so I thought. But, then, that black-hearted bastard, Ron Epstein, no less, had to proclaim Moulin Rouge the best dvd of the year. Damn him, damn him to hell. How can I not buy the best dvd of the year as a self-respecting film afficianado.

    So Moulin Rouge is my last, absolutely last, no doubt in my mind, postively final, I've never been so sure of anything in my life, dvd purchase for the year.

    Hmmm... I already have most of my major wants (Hedwig, Moulin Rouge). The last one I'll pick up will probably be Mannequin w/ Kim Cattrall.

    A guilty pleasure to be sure, but I've always liked it, and hey, Kim Cattrall!

    I've got Sahara, The Big Heat, and The Elephant Man coming this week from Amazon. I'm sure I'll pick up at least one or two discs before the year is up!

    My disposable income is in the negative numbers, so Twin Peaks: The First Season will be my last purchase unless I get some gift cert's for Xmas.

    Given their estimate, I'm expecting the wallet busting Macross set to be the last one that I will have in hand this year. Of course, you never know.

    I'm picking up The Fast and the Furious this friday, so that could be my last title for 2001. If I'm lucky I might be able to p/u American Pie 2- Unrated, The Sixth Sense-Vista, Tombstone-Vista, and Tron on the 28th. So I guess we'll see.[​IMG]

    "I thought I'd bought my last dvd for the year, the wonderful Criterion Edition of Frederico Fellini's 8 1/2"
    You still should. AMAZING disc.
    My last purchase though, I'm right with ya there: Moulin Rouge. I have a few others coming out now that I will have to purchase in January (Twin Peaks for one)

    Actually I just put in orders for Bad taste LE and The fast and the furious just before I got online now. I am almost convinced that is my last purchase for myself this year...

    No more 'till next year

    I doubt that I'll personally purchase another DVD until next year, but I'm sure to receive at least one DVD for Christmas. Hopefully it'll be something good.

    Hedwig was my last purchase, but I'm counting on getting several for Christmas like Elephant Man and Moulin Rouge. Don't let me down Santa!

    The way things are looking, it will be the Twin Peaks Season 1 package. Here's hoping.

    I don't think I'll be buying any more until Jan. 2, so aside from the 6 (that I know of) that I'm getting for Christmas, the last one I actually bought is...
    Moulin Rouge
