    Only learnt today that Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) directed this film, its a blind buy.

    I was really disappointed in The Box. Saw it years ago and felt the cool concept was wasted. Darko’s a classic, though!

    Just watching The Box now, the first 15 minutes has me intrigued.

    I liked the first 30 or so, but weird things start to happen. The direction it takes I just didn’t care for.

    Yeah its got quite a sinister vibe early on, i like the time period in which it is set. At this point I have no idea what is going to happen next.

    Frank Langella is a good actor, I liked him in The 9th Gate, he appears to be playing a similar role here,

    Just been listening to Fire Walk with Me and Twin Peaks scores and just thought why have I not bought Twin Peaks The Limited Series score already... so I bought it, the sound of Angelo Badalamenti is unique to him no question...

    Badlands by Terrence Malick. This and Days of Heaven are two brilliant films.

    Could this 200 000 GB disk save physical media?

    For whole series it would work.

    Still continuing the true story of Europe, this time about the French Revolution.

    For nostalgia's sake, again.

    That one was a surprise, and cheap as well.

    Ordered on february 21st, dispatched (according to Amazon) on february 27th, in fact dispatched (according to the postmark) on march 21st, in my mailbox today. Slight problem : it's Region 1, but my old DVD player is all-regions, so...

    Wow!! I’m guessing you’ve watched it in its entirety now? I just did a rewatch a couple months back. It’s a sly little slow burn.

    I’ve been enjoying your recent posts on the Trek world, so what did you think of UNFORGIVEN @Fire_and_Ice_Returns ??

    Vinegar Syndrome’s 4K edition of Road House. I strongly recommend anyone on the fence about getting it makes their call soon; over 100 copies sold since yesterday, and less than 900 total left in stock! They will get very expensive, as they already are on other non VS sites.

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) - UK 3 Disc UE from 2008 with slipcover. Found it New for € 1,00. Including English DTS and Dutch subs.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/404618376790?chn=ps&_ul=GB&_trkparms=ispr=1&amdata=enc:1gT9U9KXsQeipU6jwepK66g14&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-169684-531343-4&mkcid=2&itemid=404618376790&targetid=293946777986&device=m&mktype=pla&googleloc=1010543&poi=&campaignid=20649934318&mkgroupid=153764631759&rlsatarget=pla-293946777986&abcId=&merchantid=116653448&gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjw8J6wBhDXARIsAPo7QA_enYP_qyrD5yN_y33EvFzRBjSTVwJVkztqar0TqiQ_RBMF2uunGDAaApcuEALw_wcB

    I think is Re-release in slipcover with discs including same as 2007 released 3 Disc 30th Anniversary UE digipack release. With little difrence in disc art and no booklet/poster.

    First up: IT! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958).

    Yes, I know, it's not really Godzilla. But it was cheap, and I'm a completist, so...

    Today, I have received the ten Godzilla movies I had ordered four days ago. Now to find the time to watch them. And trying to find the ones missing from my collection (three Showa and five Millenium). And waiting for at least a European release of Godzilla Minus One.

    Have fun @Gerald.

    It's always surprised me that Toho doesn't consistently license these titles outside of Japan as their availability is often hit or miss. Imagine if the DVD rights to the Connery era Bond films (minus Goldfinger) were held by company "X", the Moore/Dalton era held by company "Y" and NTTD held by company "Z" - with the rest being completely unavailable. We Bond fans would be marching in the streets in anger at such a situation. Well, welcome to the world of Japanese Sci-Fi.

    If my old laptop still allows me to play region 2 DVDs (I will test it this weekend), I may order GODZILLA MINUS ONE from CDJapan.com to tide me over until a region one disk is available. Yeah, no subtitles, but after seeing the film multiple times I kind of know the dialogue by heart.

    As for "GODZILLA" (1998), believe or not, I've never bought it. Probably in protest. :)
