Just One of the Guys (1985) (Columbia/Tri-Star) - Really guilty pleasure but her brother Buddy is an absolute riot. Oh and Sherilyn Fenn too ;)


Kiss, The (1988) (Columbia/Tri-Star) - Really terribly B horror movie that I used to watch over and over again. Don't ask me why I like it, I just do. :D


Oz: The Complete Third Season (4-DVD Set) (2000)

Richard III (Criterion Edition) (1955)

Watch out, Romier. Just One of the Guys is not OAR. Columbia-Tristar unfortunately does not see it fit to release this great 80s flick in its proper format. I'd buy it in a second if it were. :(


Another light week for me.

I'll definitely be buying The Dick Van Dyke Show Season 3, and possibly Chappele's Show Season 1.


Matchstick Men would be a blind buy for me, I might get it at Target's $16.99 price.


I'd be all over that History of Cinema set, except I've never once had a pricing mistake (or in some cases a legitimate low price...*glares at BestBuy.com*) honored, so I wouldn't want to give the rest of you my bad luck by trying to preorder it now. ;)

I'm tempted by the Greenaways, db - Have you confirmed OAR? Greenaway has suffered horribly in terms of full-frame only releases in the UK in the past, which when fancy cinematography is his calling card is just bizarre.

Iainl, a review of The Draughtsman's Contract is here and A Zed and Two Noughts is here. They're both nice anamorphic transfers and loaded with extras, including great commentary tracks by Greenaway.


Instead of buying these individual discs, I would recommend getting this French box set, which includes exact ports of these DVDs, plus the two discs of Greenaway's short films released by the bfi a few months ago.

Spy Kids 3 for my kids. It'll be interesting to see how the 3D goes on the smaller HT screen. In the theater, the 3D was great for pushing images deeper, but not so good at bringing things forward.


Anyway, my kids loved the movie, so I'll get it.


Wonder how the rental outfits are going to handle renting this movie, and the inevitable non-return of the 3D glasses. Hope they got extras.
