haha Yeah, I know...I keep forgetting to check what I've got. I know for a fact, though, that I've got UK editions of Hannibal (better quality than the US release, and plenty of extras, whereas the US release was barebones), and brand new, sealed UK editions of Payback (has both cuts, rather than the US edition's single cut), The Frighteners, Boogie Nights, and The Road Warrior (under its original title, Mad Max 2).
Other than that, I think the only BD's I'm currently looking to disperse (other than my Halloween collection) would be Man of Steel, Re-Animator, Hobo With a Shotgun, and the original BD editions of Fargo, RoboCop, Enter the Dragon, and The Fugitive. Oh, and I've got a sealed copy of the Alien Anthology (in the original thick board-book packaging) for $25 or so. If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
LET'S GO DO SOME CRIMES!
Sid and Nancy is a terrible film buoyed by great lead performances...particularly Oldman (in his film debut). But as a film, it's really bad. Insulting crap. Oldman is really the only reason I've owned that movie on three different formats. haha As a general rule, I hate Alex Cox. Repo Man is the exception to the rule. Straight to Hell was okay, too, if a complete and total mess.
Naked Lunch is very good...I think you'd love it. Reading the book isn't necessary at all...though it certainly helps, as does knowing Burroughs's history. But again, not necessary.
Repo Man was a very good buy, though.
I feel so old now...
Thanks for the add Thorni52!
Cool. My set arrived a few days ago, but I haven't had a chance to dive in yet.
The ugly beauty is what makes FWWM a masterpiece, as well as all the layers. And there are tons of layers. The opening is actually great, in my opinion...and the stuff with Harry Dean Stanton is especially important, particularly with regard to the Lodge Spirits, and the inner workings of the Lodge. Which are also touched upon in the scenes with Bowie, and MIKE, and the scene where Leland is in the Red Room. So much to dissect. You'll need a few more viewings, I'd say, then you can REALLY start to theorize. FWWM actually reveals more about the Lodge Spirits than the series ever did.
Yeah...I just remembered the killer kid subplot too. haha Another WTF development.
Be prepared...FWWM is emotionally devastating. Incredibly tragic. If Rob Zombie was emulating Twin Peaks in the tone of RZH2, he was emulating FWWM. It's a surreal and disturbing masterpiece...and it will give you a LOT to think about with regard to the Lodge Spirits.
Yeah, Windom Earle was a letdown. The way everyone spoke of him in hushed tones, I expected a real, menacing that...not a campy pantomime villain. Still, the payoff in the Lodge is great. And at least Earle gets to kill off Ted Raimi. haha
Gordon Cole is always a riot. "YOU ARE WITNESSING A FRONT THREE-QUARTER VIEW OF TWO ADULTS SHARING A TENDER MOMENT!"
There are great things even in the lull...but all that Evelyn Marsh, Ben's Civil War crap is just ludicrous and pointless. Had the episodes immediately following the Laura Palmer wrap-up been stronger, ratings might not have fallen off, and we might have gotten a third season, at least.
