This here's a brand-new thread for us to talk about what movies we like so much (or found so cheap) or had such interest in that we couldn't resist but bring 'em home for our very own.

Mark Evanier raved about 1776, so I picked up the Blu-ray of that. Funny, 'cause I think Evanier has lousy taste in late-night talk show hosts, movies, and soup.

The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh: I always liked this one, and the Blu-ray was used and cheap.

Blood Suckers/Blood Thirst: Something Weird's DVDs are always a treat, a pair of usually-lousy movies and a couple of hours of shorts, radio ads, tons of trailers, and the like. I'm unfamiliar with these films, but the former has Patrick Macnee and Peter Cushing(!) and the latter, um, does not. And it was under five bucks.

I just got World For Ransom and Vera Cruz in Blu, and love them both...but you know how I am about Robert Aldrich.

Mark's a good writer & I enjoy his blog (or whatever it is), but his interests (Borscht-belt comedians, Las Vegas, late-nite talk shows & musical theatre) are not mine. Oh yeah, I tried his much heralded tomato soup @ Soup Plantation & was sorely disappointed.

I told him the soup was lousy; he ignored me. *L* On the other hand, the salad - which he never talks about - is excellent there, amongst the best salad I've ever had at a restaurant.

Recently picked with money from rolling some quarters and other change, something I do because I'm cheap, the Criterion Island of Lost Souls, Little Caeser on blu ray, SOS Coast Guard, and Mad Women of the Lost Mesa.

That's not cheap, it's being fiscally responsible. Money is money.

Well, me, for starters. Sure, I became a billionaire when my father reached for that gun (dammit, dad, they were just pearls and easily replaceable), but I didn't stay one by squandering pennies.

I bought Gulliver's Travels and Black & White Dreams and Technicolor Nightmares from Thunderbean on Blu a couple of weeks ago.

Then yesterday, I unexpectedly received Gangbusters and Lost City of the Jungle from Serial Squadron in the mail as a gift from someone who didn't want them anymore. I didn't pay for them, but what the hey. It's worth mentioning.

Thanks, LG, for the review. I've been aware of this movie for years and was always curious to see it, but never had the opportunity. I was considering the new Olive release, but had been hesitant due to Olive's high prices and lack of extras. Based on your review, and having a moderate grasp on your likes/dislikes, I'm going to take a chance on this one.

So, you know that if I hate it, it's all your fault.

That 1939 boxed set came in on Blu-ray from Warner Bros. Better late than never.

On The Thing With Two Heads, Gravy, I completely agree. Great movie, great disc, and still kind of timely.
