I thought this topic would be relevant in the off topic forum as well. What non anime movie, television show, cartoon etc... did you just buy?

I'm starting to think that there's something seriously wrong with me. Here's a few of the DVD's I bought recently:

Strange Days (Juliette Lewis, booyah!)
Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes (25th Anniversary Edition)
Highlander (The one and only...)
Spacehunter (Molly Ringwald blush)
Stand By Me (Everyone who's ever been a kid should see this.)
The Last Starfighter (The original CGI.) (Also 25th Anniversay Edition) (Also everyone who's ever been a kid should see this one.)
Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III (Truly designed for those of us with ADD.)
The Living Dead Girl (aka La Morte Vivante)
Neurotically Yours (Collection Volume 1)
DeathRace / Death Race 2 (Unrated)

I just picked up the two Tarzan Collections containing all of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan films. I grew up watching Tarzan so I'm looking forward to a little reminiscing with my favorite ape man!

Now if I could only find Weissmuller's Jungle Jim films on DVD then I'd be a happy camper smile

A true connoisseur of the classics and noir you are. There will never be another Bogie. I like his movies and Cary Grant's. I'm also a fan of Ginger Rogers. I like the films she made without Fred. I've been looking for someone to release Vivicious Lady for some time.

I've also been thinking about checking out some of Ginger Rogers films (w/o Freddie) as well. Any recommendations?


Just picked up today is the classic The Birds. Nothing beats a Hitchcock classic.

Kitty Foyle is her most acclaimed role for which she won the Academy Award. It is a little depressing, but some of her best acting.
The Major and the Minor is an entertaining comedy with Ray Milland. She has to impersonate a teenager on a train and soon finds herself at a Military Academy stuck in the pretend role.
I would also recommend Once upon a Honeymoon with Cary Grant.
My favortie of her films is the comedy Vivacious Lady which she stars opposite a young Jimmy Stewart. Her personality really shines in this film.

At the time of my posting I was unaware that Death Comes To Town had made it to US. I have since looked into it an discovered it had. Still, I didn't think many Americans were aware of it. I thought it kinda flew under most radars.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 10/21/11 01:58 PM

I believe it was licensed here due to the newly released Kids In The Hall Complete series box set. I've already got the original 5 Kids In The Hall series sets so I wont be picking up the new set. I think it's hard for people to wrap their heads around how vanguard the "Kids" were. More importantly, how brave they were. To most, their comedy just seems dated. Like most things, you've gotta step away and look at it in context with the times in which it was created to fully appreciate some of the humor.

Some other shows out of Canada that I've really enjoyed are "Corner Gas" and the "Red Green Show".

Furthermore we all should give a nod to Canada in regard to how many scenes of films and shows that we all are familiar with that are filmed there. Many of the scenes from one of my favorite show "Fringe" were filmed in Canada.

My parents neighbor is from Canada, and yes he has the Canadian accent thing (and does say "eh" on occasion). Pretty cool guy though. I went to Canada a couple if times since I lived up in the NW for a long time.

Also just in case: "I'm squishing your head!" was pretty funny on Kids in the Hall.

Besides the purchase of the anime I mentioned, I also got a ticket for Monday night Raw which is on 10/24 live from Austin. Not sure if I will be on TV, but I will be wearing an Undertaker shirt (has spooky glowing eyes).

Got really bored and decided to drive a ways to a slightly "upscale" mall.
There was a similar mall in Seatlle called Bellevue Square.

Not really sure why I went, but I just ate lunch and bought a magazine & a Space Needle LEGO set. This was at the LEGO store, and I almost got bit by the LEGO bug pretty hard. Cause they have these new Star Wars LEGO sets of an Imperial Shuttle (it has to be at least 2' tall) that was about $150, and a Super Star Destroyer (the Executor) that had over 1200 parts and was $400.
Wonder if it's easier to put together than the normal Star Destroyer set that had about 1,000 parts and was about $350 (I have this and tried to put it together only for it to fall to pieces when I tried to put it on display).

The magazine was a LEGO magazine that shows tips & some instructions for Mecha made out of LEGO parts. There is this really awesome MechaGodzilla in scale to the Minigigs (even has a removable cockpit with three inside) the thing has to be at least 3' tall.

I odered Vol. XXII of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the RiffTrax version of Planet of Dinosaurs from Amazon which have already shipped. I also got season 9 of Law and Order and pre-ordered season 10.

I also just received my Blu-Ray copy of Santa Claus, a batsh*t insane-and creepy-Xmas film made in Mexico and brought to the US by the inimitable K Gordon Murray. I originally saw this as an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000; after watching the documentary about the film included on the official release I decided to get this. The BD has the original uncut Mexican version (with English subtitles) and the K Gordon Murray version (which MST3K had to edit for time constraints).

"Bats???t insane... I love that. I just laugh heartily and think to myself: "Who thinks of these wonderful adjectives?" I'm reminded of another wonderful adjective I read in another topic by J.E.S.: "craptastic". Who says vocabulary isn't fun?

Anyhoo... I just bought:

The War Of The Worlds The Complete Series (circa 1988)
The Complete Metropolis (with the legendary 24 mins. of restored footage)
Metropolis Special Edition (Giorgio Moroder)

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is an American film shot using mostly TV technicians in an old airplane hangar on Long Island and featured a young Pia Zadora as one of the Martian children. It was also done on Mystery Science Theater 3000 as it richly deserved to be.

Santa Claus is a film made in Mexico by director Rene Cardona and is not so much "bad" as it is insane. It appears to have much higher production values, rather like the Russo-Finnish films MST3K did which were quite well made but still nutty as hell, and the English dub just adds to the fun.

I just bought and watched REAL STEEL, I liked it overall, only because of the Kid and the Robots.
( Iím sure my 3 Ĺ year old Grandson will love to watch the fight scenes with me )

Itís obvious that the Movie was all about Dakota Goyoís character ( Max Kenton ),
but I thought Hugh Jackmanís character was suppose to have some king of Personal growth experience.
I saw where they were going with this ( Hughís character ) but it didnít get there for me.
( and for everyone else I would think, I hope Iím not the only one that thought that )

Iím sure this is Steven Spielberg ( producer ) and Shawn Levyís ( Director ) fault.
Their focus was on the Robotís and Dakota Goyoís character, in the end
Charlie Keaton ( Jackman ) didnít learn a thing from what I saw.

And now that Max is back with his Aunt, ( Remember ) thatís where heís going after the last fight, back to his Aunt.
I see Charlie losing the Robot within a Week ( even though itís Maxís Robot ) and causing his Girlfriend to lose her Gym within a couple of Months.
( ... When thinking about what happens after the Credits, thatís all I could foresee ... )

I think he did grow a bit. He got attached to his son, got his boxing mojo back, and since it made a bunch of $ there will be a sequel.

Anyhow I had to buy some new tires for my Jeep, since all 4 of them were getting really worn out. Cost about $450 (which I now owe my parents since I don't have that kind of $ in the bank). Kinda thinking about selling part of my 401k stuff to pay it back quicker.

Unless somebody is interested in buying a bunch of LEGO stuff, or maybe some Pokemon cards (for the TCG)?

Not sure how much the LEGO stuff would be since it's enough to fill at least 4-5 pillow cases full (it's separated by colors). The Pokemon cards would probably be about $200 since I have an almost complete collection of the sets between Diamond & Pearl & Arceus (part of Platinum). Also have a ton of tin boxes & some cards from the HeartGold/Soul Silver through Black & White sets.

If interested let me know via PM.

Office Space was so great on so many levels. One can even discover wisdom in it if they look hard enough. Anybody that likes office Space as much as I do, simply must check out the movie Idiocracy.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 02/14/12 09:23 AM

Idiocracy was fine. It had its moments, certainly. I just felt that it was trying too hard at some points. Buttf***ers? Really? Don't get me wrong, I'm not offended or anything, I just know that Mike Judge can do better.
I still haven't seen Extract.
I was aware of Mike's cameo in Office Space.
Let us know your thoughts on the Straw Dogs remake when you get a chance to see it. I've got the original on DVD (haven't upgraded it to Blu yet) & I consider it one of my favorites. It can sure as hell be difficult to watch at times, but it just gives the ending that much more well deserved punch.

Kinda brings to mind the American remake of Let The Right One In. Was the ending scene really justified to that degree, considering what preceded it? In the original film & in Straw Dogs, I would say "F*** YES!",.. Not so much in the LTROI remake..

I also watched Batteries Not Included a lot as a kid. I remember it fondly, but honestly can recall too many great details. Old people and tiny robots,.. That's the extent of my memories, heh.

I've been watching Episode I & II of Star Wars lately. I picked up the Blu box set with all of the films & figured it'd be best to watch them in order. Ep I is even worse than I remember. Everything is just wrong in so many different ways. Ep II is a big step up from the prior. I'm anxious to get Ep III out of the way and move into the original trilogy.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 02/14/12 09:41 AM

I thought that the scenes taking place at St. God's Hospital were hilarious in Idiocracy, especially the thermometer scene. One of the aspects of Batteries Not Included that I remember fondly was the music.

I got an email a few days ago from Amazon about a Gold Box sale on The Godfather Collection (the Coppola Restoration) on Blu-Ray for $25 and decided to buy it as I have always wanted to own a copy of this.

One thing that's really annoying with Amazon is that when they post reviews for a product they often include reviews that are not for the same release. I wanted to see what people thought of this. There were a lot of 4 and 5-star reviews but I decided to look at the ones who only gave it 1-star and found that all but one of the bad reviews were for a completely different DVD release (the one that was for this release was actually a complaint about the vendor the guy bought it from). Don't get me wrong, I don't need to know what others think of the films themselves, its just that I've been disappointed by some recent releases so I wanted to know about the quality of the transfers and whether the films were meesed up (like what George Lucas did to the original Star Wars trilogy). Most of the reviews for this release were very positive, so hopefully it will be good.

I originally started the thread with movies, television shows, and cartoons in mind; but by all means, if you got something else that you just gotta tell the world about... well, tell us. We'd love to hear about it!

I got LEGO Batman for the Wii (again) was kinda bored, so I bought it.
Also got a Series 6 LEGO Mini-Figure.

If you did not know about these, basically you buy a sealed package (you can't see what's inside) and when you open it, you get a random mini-figure.

I have some from Series 4, 5, and 6.

The ones I have are:

A guy with a boombox & microphone wearing a lot of bling
A Navy Sailor with a telescope
A British Royal Guard (with the big furry hat)
A Scottish Warrior with a sword & sheild

There are some really cool looking ones like an alien (grey), a guy in a monster suit (looks kinda like a lizzard-man), the Statue of Liberty, a geenie (with no legs, but that wispy tail thing), and several others.

I have the tape but just never got iron giant on dvd. Saw the special edition for 5 dollars at wallmart. Couldn't pass up. Birds Of Prey had Huntress who was Batman and Catwoman's daughter (ala pre crisis and maybe current post flashpoint one?). I know not a lot people liked but I did it was cheap too.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/18/12 09:43 PM

Grabbed another LEGO Mini-Figure, tried to figure out what it was by feeling the package, and got a Minotaur that looks pretty cool.

BTW not sure if I mentioned having a key-chain of Harvey "Two-Face" Dent that I carry around with me now.

Cause of my last name, I am sort of "popular" with several of the workers at Fry's, and they got a kick out of the key chain.

Now all I need is an Arthur Dent figure from the movie version of The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy...

Also in Japan, I am a Pokemon Gym Leader (well depending on which starter Pokemon you choose) you face one of 3 gym leaders in the first gym in Black & White.

The original name was Dent, which they changed to Cilan and is the Grass-type leader (if the player chose the water type as the starter), his brothers are fire & water respectively (again depending on the starter). BTW the dub actor for that role played Sonic the Hedgehog in the games from 2005-2009 and was also Crow on Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds.

According to Wikipedia they were looking at some posters of ZZ Hill, and BB King. Apparently cause BB was at the "top" they decided on ZZ Top (instead of ZZ King).

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/30/12 12:00 PM

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/03/12 01:53 AM

Who knows, maybe sometime (if I ever get the chance) I could ask one of them, since on occasion they like to do gigs at really small places by themselves (IE one member of the group).

Anyhow back to the topic of what did you buy.

I decided to get the Skylanders (Spyro's Adventure) for the Wii.

This game is pretty fun & rather addicting. If you get seriously hooked you can end up spending a ton of money. This is due to the little figures they sell.
In order to unlock everything in the game you need a Skylander of each element. Of course there are several (air, water, fire, earth, life, death, magic, and tech). The game comes with 3 figures (magic, tech, and water), but you can buy new figures as well. There are 3 packs (with 3 different Skylanders), a single pack (with one Skylander), and adventure packs that come with one Skylander (plus a thing that unlocks a bonus level & 2 items that do different stuff). The 3 packs & adventure packs are $20, and the singles are $9.
So if you want to get all 32 of them it's pretty expensive. The neat thing about them is you can take them to your friends house and they will have whatever powers & abilities you had on your game, in their game. Yes it's Multi-platform and all of the toys work with all of the games (including 3DS, PC, Wii, PS3, and X-Box 360). You can also hook up your computer to the Internet and do stuff on the website with your Skylander through the wireless gate (uses a USB).

Of course apparently there are rare Skylanders, and ones "exclusive" to certain stores. Most of which are just re-paints of certain characters. Of course this brings up the rather ugly side, with people selling fake rare figures on EBay (they paint a normal figure the rare color). Also there are supposedly Gold & Silver ones out there somewhere.

Personally I might buy a couple random figures to unlock the stuff in the game, and save them for when Skylanders: Giants comes out.
BTW you also gain levels, and the highest is level 10, of course you can buy poweres in the game with the gold coins you get.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/04/12 11:21 PM

Picked up one extra Skylander (again only going to buy one of each element).
This one is the Life Element being Stealth Elf, one of only 3 female characters (that I know of). She uses daggers as the attack method, and is pretty fast.

Just using her for some of the levels got her up to level 7 pretty quick.

I think I will go with half melee and half ranged attacks.
So I would need one more ranged and 3 melee.

Probably would be Ignitos (Fire), Chop Chop (Undead), and Bash (Earth) for melee, and Warnado (Air) for range.

Got The Wrestler on DVD, it was $5 at Super HEB (local grocery chain store that has an electronics & garden center).

Its been a while since I saw it (in the arthouse type theater), but I remembered that it is very good.

Even if you don't like pro wrestling it has a great story, interesting characters, and an almost chilling look at what these performers put their bodies through.
Not to mention what it does to their families since they are on the road quite a bit.

Plus even though she is in her late 40s Ms. Tomei is seriously smoking hot in this movie, and of course Mr. Rourke makes this the comeback performance of his life.

Picked up:

Silverhawks Volume 1 (32 episodes of the show on 4 DVDs) for $15 at the Walmart.

Kick-Ass movie for $7.50 at Walmart.

Silverhawks is a tad cheesy at times, but is also pretty fun. You can tell several of the same voices from Thundercats did several of the voices from Silverhawks. It's kinda fun listening to the southern drawl Lion-O that is Bluegrass. Plus the Monstarr & Mumm-Ra voice is the same guy (and the transformation thing sounds a lot alike).

As for Kick-Ass I did not see it in the theater, but picked it up as a rental on DVD. I was quickly floored at how violent & bloody this movie was. It is a kinda poke at the various popular super-hero movies. However it does a really good job of making you believe that ordinary people could put on costumes & fight crime. The two that really stole the movie were Hit-Girl, and her dad (played by Nick Cage). The reason I had not bought it, is cause even though it was a good movie, it did not seem to be "worth" what they wanted for it at the time.

Is Lexx cool? I've never seen it. It's totally a blind buy for me. The blind buy is fast becoming a thing of the past with modern technology as it is. For me though; some of my greatest discoveries in anime, music, television series, and movies were blind buys. I'm still hopeful that Lexx Season 2 is due out soon, especially considering the street date was may 8th. The whole thing is kinda weird though, considering I've recently purchased seasons 1, 3, & 4. Barnes & Noble is still taking preorders so that boosts my hopes.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 05/11/12 12:00 AM

Those Godzilla movies should be still in print, at least according to DVDaf.
Maybe it's due to speculation since Sony is having financial troubles.
Also the company Mill Creek Entertainment got a huge deal with Sony for a bunch of movies (over 250) so there is speculation that some of the Sony Licenced Godzilla movies might be in the deal. Personally I hope they do have some (and put them on DVD in better versions). This is due to Sony not handling them very well when they first got the licences. 4 of the movies are on flipper discs, some are full-screen, and one of them got the end credits cut out.
Also the movie Godzilla 2000 does not have the Japanese version on it (the only other one that does not is King Kong Vs Godzilla).

Also as far as Gamera goes, the old ADV versions of Gamera Guardian of the Universe, Gamera Attack of Legion, & Gamera Revenge of Iris are OOP.
At least DVD wise, since Mill Creek also got the Blu-Rays of those.
The rest are from Shout Factory and should be available for purchase on Right Stuf.

Anyhow, I recently re-picked up the PC game of Warcraft 3. I got the battle chest which comes with the original game & the expansion.

I got it, I got it! My LEXX Season 2 came in the mail today. That makes it a complete series, and it matches the the other volumes to boot, although it's hard to tell considering the wildy variant running times and episode counts between the volumes. Who cares, they appear to match? Fair warning: Seasons two & four are crappacks, much like the Underworld Trilogy.

I was poking aroung Amazon the other day on my work computer (I can look but I can't order) and noticed that season 3 of Night Gallery has finally been released on DVD. I intended to order that plus season 2 when I got home but had a brain fart and forgot. It worked out well though because I got a heads up on the ANN forum about Amazon selling The Art of Osamu Tezuka-God of Manga book + DVD for $3.51 new so I added that to my order so I got it shipped free. I almost bought that book for a much higher price several times, glad I waited now.

And, at last, my Night Gallery collection is complete!

I was in Costco today and just could not resist buying The Sergio Leone Anthology. This consists of 4 movies (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Duck, You Sucker), all uncut. Each film comes with a full DVD of extras (8 DVDs in total) in a digipak inside an embossed (and fairly sturdy) artbox with a booklet. All this for $12.99 was something I could not pass up.

The first three are the "Man With No Name" trilogy starring Clint Eastwood that pretty much defined the "spaghetti western". I saw them in the movies when I was young and I'm looking forward to being able to revisit them uncut. I'm especially interested to watch A Fistful of Dollars now that I have seen the film it was a remake of, Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo.

Grrrr!!! My car was acting up last night (temperature gauge went all the way up). Got it checked out today, and of course it's another $385 that I owe my parents. Oh well I guess it could be worse, since last time it did that I did not really notice it until it cost about $1900 to fix the car...which I did pay back.

Oh well I guess I will keep a closer eye on the stuff like oil, water, and other stuff. I am really not in the mood to buy a car currently, so I am trying to get one more year out of this one. Heck by now almost the whole car is new with all the work it's gotten in the last 2 years. Tires, brakes, engine, & thermostat.

Of course they said they wanted to do more stuff (heater hoses) which would have been another $200. But since I very seriously doubt I will use the heater anytime soon, that can wait.

Maybe things will start to be better in the morning, since it's now officially my 41st B-Day....

My wifeís 95 Ford Taurus is in the shop at this moment, it wouldnít start.
( I ended up parking it in the Garage for a while till we had the cash to fix it )

First the battery is dead, dead, dead, ( from trying to start it plus a couple months not being charged ) thatís $120 +
Some wiring between the Ignition and Starter had to be replaced, thatís $300.00 +
( thatís the reason why it wouldnít start )

Before all that happened the AC was always running out of R134 coolant.
( my wife canít drive a Car without AC, it would bring on a Migraine )
A lot of the AC system is going to need to be replaced, thatís $2í000.oo +

With everything added up, plus the little things theyíll find to add to the bill,
itíll be $3í000.oo + before itís over, Iím Sure

Thanks, sorry about your car!
That is one thing that does work well (AC) which is good considering it gets absurdly hot during the summer. The battery has been replaced as well, again within the last couple of years.

I think it really depends on where you take it to get fixed. For example during that engine trouble incident, I took it to Goodyear and of course they wanted to put an entirely new engine in it. Which would have been like $5000, then we took it to a normal automotive place and that's where it was $1900.

The brake thing would have been $650, but someplace else it was $460.

I would guess that maybe the recent repair might have been cheaper at that place, but this was a real emergency so I took it to Firestone near Fry's.

Anyhow, thanks again for the b-day song!

I was a really good Auto repair Do It Yourselfer, till my body started to tell me it couldnít do the work anymore.
Iíve had so many bad experiences, with poor repair and down right lying about what needed to be done.
( when it was something I wasnít able to do or I just didnĎt know the cause, I would take it in to a shop for repair )

When it comes to the Non- Manufacture affiliated auto repair shops.
( I even caught the local Firestone breaking a part on the AC system of a truck I use to own )

Now-a-Days, I just suck it up and pay the extra $$, I know the Dealership Repair Shops charge for Parts & Labor.
( the Labor is the biggest cost jump )
However, Iíve been much happier with the work Iíve received from the Dealership Repair Shops,
when compared to that of the Non-Dealership affiliated auto Repair Shops.

Getting it done right the first time, the warranties and the speed of service, Iíve found to be worth the offset in cost.

But yah, it still sucks having to shell out that kind of cash....

Copy cat-I saw John Carter Of Mars a month ago at the local theater and loved it-can't belive it was such a money losing bomb for disney. So-needless to say I trotted over to the Target right by where I live and purchased it for 20 bucks-money well spent. I can remember reading one of the Barsoom novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs when I was a teenager and loveing it.

Personally, I think they should have more highly promoted the fact that the film had a Pixar Director helming the project. People may not too well be familiar with the John Carter comic character, but they sure as heck know that Pixar is responsible for some of the very best in animated entertainment for the longest while.
I haven't seen the film, but I did preorder it forever ago. Mine has shipped. I ordered the 3D version. As always, I don't own a 3D television,.. I just figured "why not, maybe someday" + I think I ordered it with a coupon that actually made the price cheaper than the regular version's price..

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 06/07/12 12:58 AM

I think mine came with a 5 to 8 buck coupon, so I got a bonus 3D disk for basically the same price if not slightly cheaper than your $20.
I'm not a huge fan of 3D TVs, but I may someday upgrade or visit a friend that owns such a TV that I may wish to give it a viewing upon. "who knows". The price was certainly reasonable enough, plus I still get the regular 2D BD.

I can tell you that just having purchased a 1080P 42" Panasonic plasma a few months ago (non 3d capable) there's no way I'm gonna dump it just to get a 3d capable model-I'll watch 3d, but only at a movie theater.

I picked up a 52 or so inch 1080p 240hz quasi-LED LCD television about 2 months prior to the whole 3D option. I was a bit upset to already be outdated, but I'm also sticking with what I've got for probably at least the next decade.

I hear there is supposed to be a new version of 3D TV that is like the 3DS, in the fact you don't need glasses to see the 3D.

We have those Daleks & a Tardis at work they are pretty darn fun.

Back when I used to work at Toys R Us (about the time the Godzilla 1998 movie was coming out). We had these large Godzilla toys that roared when you walked by them. I really irritated some guy by constantly walking back & forth by those toys, just cause the roar was cool.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 06/17/12 01:42 AM

To quote the funny "Weird Al" parody of "Wild Thing" (by Tone Loc) "Isle Thing".

"Ginger & Mary-Ann could've used some funky cold-medina" (Funky Cold-Medina is another song by Tone Loc).

Anyhow, I bought Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows on DVD.
It was a pretty decent movie, and since I have the first one I felt that the 2nd deserved a purchase.
Also got a series 5 LEGO Mini-Figure at Toys R Us (wasting time before the movie on Thursday). It was a clown (with a pie to splat somebody with).
Kinda hoping for the lizard guy that kinda looks like a guy in a Godzilla costume. Oh well, since I am limiting myself to only 2 of these per series, I guess I won't get that character.

I had gotten 2 of the newest series 7 LEGO mini-figures earlier.
I don't think I mentioned them.
One was a typical opera Viking woman, and the other was "King Triton" (off The Little Mermaid) had a fish tail & trident.

Yeah-while Mary Ann was fairly flat she was much more approachable and down to earth-Ginger won the boobie race but she was a stuckup, egotisical b***h.

Whomever says that Mary Ann was flat, needs to have their eyes checked.
I would guess (maybe) that she taped them down for the show, since if you google pictures of her (in other shows) she was pretty developed...

Though I don't really recall any episode where any of the guys even got close to even "first base" with any of the single girls.

I think it was zrdb..
I always thought she had a nice upper body. smile

Oh one thing I've thought about, but havenít mentioned yet.
Ever since this whole Mary Ann, Ginger thing started.

Is the fact that I meet her in person, not out and about but in a House.
This was back in 1976, when she was still at the peck of Hotness.

Iím one of Father Flanaganís Boys Town, Boys.... (yup) smile
She came to visit and She stopped off at several of the Houses that we all lived in there.

So Kidís from other Houseís would come to the one she was at.
Iím not sure how many Houses she went to during her visit at Boys Town.

But man she was something to this ( then ) 14 year old. grin

P.S.
I can look back at it now, and just think about what must have been going through her mind.
There she is in the Living room of a House ( each Home housed anywhere from 10 to 15 boyís )
So she's in the Living Room ( all are good sized Living Room too )
and she's surrounded by as many as 20 to 25 Teenage boyís at a time, maybe more,
because boyís would come from the houseís she wasnít stopping at.

I can put myself in her shoes now and just think of what we all looked like from her point of view.
Sheís sitting and most of us are standing around her getting as close as we can to her.

Even under that very safe circumstance, it must have been intimidating for her.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 07/08/12 12:58 PM

I dunno- in all the pictures I've seen Mary Ann really didn't look that well developed-but appearances can be deceiving, guess we'll really never know now. I just got Underworld Awakening.

Have you seen the Underworld Anime Shorts included exclusively on the Blu-ray Underworld Trilogy? I already own all four titles on DVD, so I didn't go for it. It's odd, they released a Blu-ray with all four movies; but it doesn't appear to have the anime shorts on it. Anyhoo... I was just wondering if the shorts were cool.

Really ? shocked
I didnít see them, Iíll have to go back and look.

I may not of noticed because I have the Bluray and the DVD of it.
I started watching the Bluray ( only about 20% of it ), but I finished it

So I may not of looked over the extraís on the Bluray.
Well, if I donít recall the Animated Shorts than Iím sure I didnít.

Today is a dark and rainy day, and itís perfect for what Iíve been doing, in between popping on here every once in a while that is.
(
in between the Featurettes )
Iíve been watching the hours & hours of extraís on the 4 disc collectors edition of Blade Runner.
Every extra that has ever been done for Blade Runner is on here,
from the original "making of" featurettes, to the new interviews done in 2007.
I'm at about the hour 6 mark, of the extraís, and from all the stuff Iíve been learning,
apparently I didnít know as much about Blade Runner as I thought I did.

Iím glad I finally got this edition

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 08/10/12 02:31 AM

Which wrestling DVDs were those?

I am still kinda into Pro Wrestling, despite the fact I have not watched it since like April (due to no cable), was kinda tempted to go to the SmackDown coming to Austin (next week) but I usually work Tuesdays so I could not go.

Anyhow I go some puzzles at a local clearance toy/game store.
Two are for my brother (one is an owl, the other a Beatles puzzle), and I got the 4th Lost puzzle (from the TV show) it was made before the end of the 1st season or so, so it "spoils" stuff about the characters.
I went looking around for presents for my brother, was thinking of getting him the Beatles version of Monopoly, but it was way overpriced at Barnes & Noble ($40 for a non-limited edition board game, no thanks). That's why I got him the puzzles, might try to see if we have anything neat to add to those at work (cause they were under $5 each for 1000 piece puzzles).

I got 3 starter decks from more recent sets, and about 8 boosters.

Apparently the league has several people leave over the years, since nobody was familiar. I got my butt kicked a couple times & then went home & made some slightly better decks.

I guess you have to call it a B-Movie, but it does it's best to be more than that.

Naziís go to the Dark side of the Moon in 1945, in 2018 itís time to return to Earth.
And than the fun ensues.

Believe me they did an excellent job with the CGI
I think the total budget for the whole movie was around $10 million

I'd get it if I were you...

That sounds nice... yummy

WellÖ Hmmm... I guess it couldíve been posted in "What Anime did you just buy?"
It is Anime ( Anime Character ), and the Post doesnít specify only DVD or Blu-ray ( I know Iím stretching it )
OR
It couldíve been Posted in "Figures", itís not a figure, but you couldíve posted it there.
I donít think anyoneís going to say you canít Post it in that Thread
Or
I guess the "What did you just buy (non anime)?" Thread would be just fine.
OR
Maybe this is your Opportunity to Start a New Thread
One for Anime items that donít already have a specific Thread.

Is that the Nightmare On Elm Street collection with 8 movies in it? Man... Nightmare On Elm Street really f???ed with my head when I was younger. Do you remeber the television series?
Posted by: Animejr

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 11/11/12 11:55 PM

Yes it has all the movie except the remake so i believe its only 7 movies. This collection just came out a few weeks back. I have the old dvd collection that came out well over 10 years ago but its been a while since ive watched em and since i love freddy i figured the upgrade would be worth it.

Yes i have seen some of the series but you cant buy it on dvd or bluray at all. You can purchase some of the episodes on vhs tho but ill wait and pray we see a dvd release one day
Posted by: kiku

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 11/12/12 12:04 AM

I remember it not really featuring Freddy, but being standalone episodes; pretty cool nonetheless. I also vaguely remember Friday The 13th The Series, which didn't feature Jason; and was standalone episodes. I also vaguely remember being enamored by a redhead named Micky?
Posted by: Animejr

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 11/12/12 05:37 AM

Yes it was called freddys nightmares. The other one was friday the 13th series. I actually nabbed that entire series on dvd last christmas dirt cheap i still have yet to watch much of it but i did enjoy what i saw so far

If it wasnít for fye, I would have to go downtown and sell my Anime to Wild & Woolly Video

Itís one of those local secondhand DVD, ( also Anime IĎm sure ),
Music, Comic Shops, where the two guys that own it do their own wacky Commercials.

Actually, I do need to go there one day and check it out,
they may even be better to deal with than fye, who knows.

It may be a better home for my unwanted Anime

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 11/12/12 11:00 PM

If I ever want to get rid of my unwanted anime, which never (alomst never) happens, I have two choices. Get ripped off by Mega Media Exchange, or get ripped off by Half Price Books.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 11/13/12 09:51 AM

Everywhere that isn't ebay or cregg's list is gonna be a ripoff, seeing as how they will be the ones dictating the exchange rate. We only accept it due to the convenience.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 12/04/12 10:57 PM

Godzilla Vs Biollante at a local BB.
Since Fry's is goofy and is only getting one copy on Dec. 13.

The price was $4.99 for the DVD.
That is not a sale price, it's the normal price.

I guess they wanted to make up for making us wait almost 20 years to get it on DVD.

Apparently they could not get permission to include a commentary by a famous Godzilla historian, but I don't really care.

Now all we need is for ANYBODY to get Godzilla 1985 on DVD, and the collection will be complete!!!

Will watch it later, since I had seen it recently on VHS.
Though it's kinda tempting to watch it in Japanese for the first time.
Since the VHS was Dub only.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 12/08/12 02:16 AM

The Dark Knight Rises: got it at Walmart for under $15.
On DVD of course, it's a few cents cheaper than at Fry's (plus there is no discount on it currently).

Again will watch later (probably Sunday).

When I saw it in the theater, I got a kick out of hearing my last name said quite a few times during the movie.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 12/14/12 11:23 PM

I really was trying not to buy any more stuff this year but I was looking around on Amazon and I noticed that available copies of Atragon (the live-action movie directed by Ishiro Honda not the anime which I also own) were getting low, the one I ordered was actually from another vendor but was fulfilled by Amazon so eligible for free shipping and no sales tax. There are new and used copies available from other vendors but after shipping would cost almost as much. I was going to add the Blu-Ray of Godzilla vs. Biollante but that would not have been enough for free shipping, I also saw a review stating that the company expects to re-release later with the commentary track included so I decided to wait. I ended up doing a double-dip for the Daimajin - Triple Feature Collector's Edition Blu-ray to replace the old ADV sub-only singles I have as the reviews indicate a big improvement in picture quality. Then I noticed in the suggestions for other products to buy Ultraman: The Complete Series for $5.99 and for that price could not resist tossing it into the cart. The collection has all 39 episodes subbed and dubbed along with interviews with members of the English cast (including Peter Fernandez of Speed Racer fame).

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 01/04/13 08:44 AM

WellÖ. On Top of keeping up with my Anime & Live Action DVD purchases.
Iíve also bought a 2nd AR 15 ( now I can pass one down to both of my Grandsons )
and High Capacity Magazines ( more than 10 round capacity ) for my other Fire Arms.
The prices for the Weapon and the Magazines have gone through the roof,
since it was announced that there would be New Gun Control measures ( aka: canít get anymore )
when it comes to Assault Rifles and Magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
( the AR 15 is the most widely owned and is the #1 Range/Target Rifle )

I would never of bought the AR from the "manufacture" that made the one I did buy.
Nor would I have bought it set up the way this one is.
( there are thousands of ways to set up an AR 15 )

But I had to pick from what was left, the good news is I can replace anything and everything on it,
except the lower receiver itself.
The lower Receiver is the part with the serial number on it.

So when it comes down to it, if the lower receiver is milled out correctly Than you have a good base to build on,
because everything else plays off of the Lower.

And everything else ( to build out an AR 15 ) will still be For Sale after the new Laws are passed

I wish I had deeper pockets. As you said I am smart shopper. Most of the stuff I got magfest didn't cost a lot. I think Tenchi cost more then anything. I still returned home with 300 bucks. Which I used with this weeks money for comic book to get stuff of the box. The money I had left after yesterday I put away some and then got a few things. Like get the last two seasons of original tmnt I didn't have on dvd. Sales are right stuf for anime and sometimes others. Amazons got good deals and sales.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 01/17/13 02:23 PM

So as noted on the "what did you just buy" topic in the normal anime area.
I traded in some stuff:

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure (all in package)
Skylanders Giants (the portal owners version)
Nanoha (first season singles) DVDs
Godzilla Vs Biollante VHS
And 19 Skylanders figures (only place that buys them since GameStop stopped doing so).

Got a bit over $70 in store credit.
Spent $30 on Dai-Guard

Got Blue Dragon for the DS as well (was $29.99) and still have $15 credit.

Also went to GameStop to see if they would buy at least the Skylanders games (which they won't) ended up trading in both LEGO Lord of the Rings games in (Wii & DS) and got LEGO Batman 2 for DS (only LEGO game I had not played on that system), only spent about $5 for it.

I still have Sleepy Hallow on DVD, it's a fun movie that is also spooky.
Of course it helps that all the ladies have rather nice figures for those dresses they wear....

Anyhow I got these:

No Holds Barred on DVD.
It's the first full-length movie starring Hulk Hogan.
Sure it's silly, cheesy, and just plain goofy. But it's a lot of fun as well.

BTW my mom used to work in a building that they used to film part of the movie. My brother & sister went to work with her one day (I think I was out of town) and met Hogan & got an autograph.
I later went in the room they used (it's the meeting scene).

Some Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (just a starter) since I saw a couple people at work playing it, thought it might be fun to do so as well.

I used to play Yu-Gi-Oh on a pretty regular basis. I still have quite a collection of cards. I also played the first couple of games on the Gameboy Advance, which were compatible with the cards. I went to the movie on opening night and got my hands on one of the exclusive cards. Blue Eyes Shining Dragon. That was perfect, because my two best decks were centered around Blue Eyes and/or Red Eyes. The movie was a riot! No, I mean it was quite literally a riot... of children. The theatres were packed beyond capacity with a throng of swarming children. It was like a mini apacolypse. A child threatened me in the bathroom because I wouldn't trade him my exclusive card; good times, good times. I actually had a blast. I remember schools near me actually initiating "No Tolerance" on the cards at school, due to kids getting beat up over them. Letters were sent to parents and the whole nine yards. People are crazy.

I vaguely remember having a Transformers comic book back in the day. It was pretty dark stuff. I (once again, vaguely) remember Spike (or his kid, or some other kid) discovering the disembodied head of Optimus Prime in cave.

That was early G1 comic where shockwave blasts the surviving autobots after winning a battle. That lead to many autobots being hung by their arms to ceiling and optimus head that you mention.

Oh for sure. Characters die. Optimus primes dies in issues 24 (which I got to see linkara review at MAGFest). Comic was very different then the tv show. It worth tracking down TPBs of Marvels US and UK comics.

Traded in some strategy guides that I no longer needed, along with LEGO Batman 2 for DS (yes I beat it rather quickly).

Got Zak & Wiki game for the Wii. Mostly cause it got a really good score on IGN.
Still have about $14 credit...

Anybody play Lost Magic for the DS?

I also used to have some of the Transformers comics.
Still have several Godzilla comics.

BTW the Yu-Gi-Oh movie is still the 3rd most $ making anime movie in the USA. Of course nothings gonna touch the top 2 which are both Pokemon movies. The Secret of Arrietty was getting close to beating Yu-Gi-Oh, but fizzled out.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 01/24/13 09:23 PM

Also decided to get a used DS game without a box.
It's Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds Stardust Accelerator which is the "World Championship" game from 2009.

With the recent selling of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Franchise who knows if it's gonna be around much longer.
There hasn't been a new game since 2011.
If there was one, it should have come out about now.

I noticed that even Wall-Mart is stopping stocking of the card game.
They seem to be clearancing out all the old stuff.
So if your interested you could get some older starters/theme decks at about $7.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 01/28/13 10:58 PM

I've been watching a lot of Godzilla films lately so I decided to check Amazon for some titles I don't have in my collection. I ordered:

Godzilla (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
Godzilla vs. Megaguirus
Godzilla - Tokyo S.O.S.

There are others I don't have but they're either unavailable, crazy expensive, or dub only.

The Criterion Godzilla is a double dip as I already own the Classic Media 2-DVD release but this is supposed to have even better audio & visual quality and a bunch of new extras, and it does have both the original Japanese version and the US version. It also has a commentary track by David Kalat, I will be interested to see (well, hear actually) if a)he yacks as much as he does on the commentary he did for Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster and b)how his observations differ from those on the commentaries on the Classic Media release (by Steve Ryfle & Ed Godziszewski).

I was also going to pick up the blu-ray of Godzilla vs. Biollante but there is a review on Amazon which states that there was supposed to be a commentary track but they had to leave it off the initial release since they did not get approval in time; supposedly it will be re-released with the commentary later so I'm waiting to see if that happens.

I have the Japanese version of Hyrule Historia as I thought NOA would never let such a thing come out over here. It is very nice and of course the big thing about it is it reveals the infamous Zelda timeline. Which now has 3 splits which are commonly known as the Adult, Child and "What If" lines. The "What If" line caused quite the uproar for Zelda timeline fans as they never saw such a thing coming.

I also used to be into Pro Wrestling, even if you hate Cena & The Rock you really should try to go to WrestleMania.

It's a once in a lifetime type event.
I already did so when WM 19 was in Seattle.
In fact if you have that DVD you can spot me in the crowd on the special bonus feature.
It was during the RAW the next night, when all of a sudden Goldberg showed up & speared the heck out of Rock.
I am wearing a tan jacket & Darth Maul t-shirt.

Anyhow, it was a cool event & I own the DVD.
Also went to Fan Axcess (they taped some stuff near me including Trish playing some guy at HCTP, Booker T doing the "sucka" thing, and an Edge autograph thing at a local casino).

I traded in that Yu-Gi-Oh! game & got Super Paper Mario for the Wii (pretty fun combo of traditional Mario with RPG elements).
Also got Might & Magic Clash of Heroes for DS, and the next Yu-Gi-Oh! game up from the previous one. It's Reverse of Arcadia the 2010 World Championship Game (slighty better as far as story/cards goes).

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 02/01/13 03:01 PM

Only time in wrestling anything is "once in a lifetime" is when it can't happen again, like a wrestler dies. Ric Flair had a "retirement" match against HBK and later that same year he is wrestling in TNA.

I quit watching WWE back in 2005 and quit TNA and ROH in 2008. Only watched a few shows since then and from what I have seen I got out of it just in time.

I'm actually only now kinda getting into them. I've dug the song "I'm only happy when ti rains." ever since I heard in a really cool episode of The X Files. They're Madison Wisconsin natives. I recently saw Big Head Todd And The Monsters in concert, and picked up a bunch more of their albums at the show... plus a few T shirts... and a video. I can't remember the last time that I had that much fun at a show. Todd's stage presence is awesome. He can smile all the way through a 5 minute face-melter.

That's a pretty cool list. Naked Lunch was a big deal when it was released on VHS. The local video rental places removed it from their shelves, but not before my friends and I had rented it several times. That movie is f???ed up. Wait... Cloud Atlus is available??? Man, I've gotta get out more.

Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't get the appeal of UV. Although I've heard there's a time limit on usage for Digital Copy. Like if you don't buy the copy within a certain period of time after the movie's released it won't load the DC.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/12/13 09:56 PM

"Digital Copy" is separate from "Ultraviolet". The Digital Copy has two different formats. The most common being a code in the sleeve that you enter online, and then download the movie. The time limit with regard to "Digital Copy" is not for usage, but for download. You simply need to do it right away when you buy the movie. Then it's in your iTunes on your computer. I think you've actually got like a year or something. The other (less common) form of digital copy is an extra disc included with the movie which you load into your iTunes through your disc drive. Same effect, but there's no expiration date; and I think you can do it over again if you ever lose the data or get a new computer. Ultraviolet on the other hand is an online account which allows you to stream movies that you've purchased. I suppose it's handy for people using more peripheral devices such as phones or iPads, but I've no use for it. I actually want my copy, and the DVD/Blu-ray/Digital Copy is quite simply the best. For approximately $5.00 more than the DVD; I get to have it on my computer, the Blu-ray, and the DVD.

Maybe they'll do a set, plus I'm hoping that they include Digital Copy (iTunes compatible) in the combo pack. Are there gonna be three movies? shocked Maybe they'll do a super awesome ultra mega set once they're all out; which, in my dreams will include all three Hobbit films plus all three Lord Of The Rings films in one giant combo pack set (DVD/Blu-ray/Digital copy) with a running time of five hundred kerjillion hours!

I did a LOTR re-watch a few of weeks ago.
All three movies, all the extra's, for each and three of the four commentaries
of each movie. ( It did take a few days )

Iíll get around to watching the fourth commentary for the three Movies later ( maybe )

I got The Secret Of Nimh, I didn't know there was a second one.
We watched it ( again ) not to long ago, I'll have to get the second one.

update:

Wow, I just looked up the second one, what god awful reviews it got.

I loved this one

Noticed all those other reviews that say, "I wish I could give this movie a negative amount of stars?"
There are a million horrible reasons for this.
What a freaking joke. Somebody find me the exact coordinates of Thorn Valley while I build a nuke?
Ignore shills and five-year-olds who give this movie the highest possible rating.
It will cause internal bleeding with its sheer stupidity.
There are no elements of the book in this movie.
There are no elements of the original movie in this movie.
I suspect the whole thing was a fevered dream swirling in the brain of gravely ill Timothy. If that's the case, Timmy, DIE ALREADY!


I think Iíll overlook my completest tendencies on this one

I haven't seen NIMH 2 myself, but from reviews I'd say that it is to the original what the many many sequels of The Land Before Time are to the original. Dumbed down, over-fluffed, with bad musical numbers and cheap animation.

Got back from the nearby Renaissance Fair.

Didn't really buy much, only a few small items for gifts.

I have my outfit pretty much well set.
Don't really need anything for it.

This particular fair is pretty new (only 4 years old), and has a very fun atmosphere. Plus it's a lot less commercialized and less crowded than the one near Houston (not to mention only about an hour away vs like 3 hours).

It's called Sherwood Forest Fair, and obviously deals with Robin Hood & that sort of stuff.

Most of the other ones I went to involved King Henry the 8th.

This one has a lot more fantasy stuff (lots of elves/fairies).

Of course some people dressed up in odd outfits not of the time period.
I saw a Jack Sparrow, an Usagi Yojimbo (Samurai Rabbit), and some other odd outfits.
Of course I remember seeing some Star Trek Klingons at the Georgia Ren Faire one year. That was my first fair which I went to for several years. I also went to the one in Spokane, Gig Harbor, Carnation (really small), and near Houston

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/31/13 10:58 PM

Jack Sparrow cosplayers are quite the epidemic. They'll show anywhere short of a Star Wars convention. And even there it's only a matter of time smirk
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/01/13 12:14 AM

One of these days I really need to check out a Star Wars con...

Been to a comic book/RPG con (Dragon Con), and Anime cons (Sakuracon & Ikkicon).

If I had the $ I was tempted to go to the Star Trek thing in Vegas....

BTW there is this guy that comes into our store on occasion that looks a LOT like Johhny Depp (when he had the goatee look).

BTW my outfit could easily fit into Star Wars as well.
Kinda looks like a cross between The Dread Pirate Roberts (Princess Bride) and Jedi Luke from Return of the Jedi.

Yes all black, not really a good choice for the rather hot weather of Texas, but it was great in the slightly cooler Fall weather in Georgia & Seattle area as well.

I just bought the shirt & pants about 4 years ago at the Houston fair.
Since my previous outfit was rather difficult to get off if I needed a restroom break.
Let's just say wrap-around pants are not a good idea.
The previous shirt also had elastic on the sleeve area, which I found kinda silly.
Though that shirt is much thinner than the current shirt is (it's kinda a course cotton).

I was debating on getting a new shirt, but kinda talked myself out of it.
Some of the places were absurd on the prices ($60 for a shirt), though one was pretty fair ($30).

I think in total all I spent was maybe $600 for everything I have.
Including gloves, a full cloak (fading into dark grey), a few daggers/swords, several pouches, and accessories (belt, necklaces, a staff (was a wizard at first, now it's a thief/pirate blend) and various leather things).

Of course the spending was over several years.

I can only start to imagine what it must cost & feel like in the outfits with chainmail/metal/leather armor...

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/02/13 06:29 PM

OK due to a certain settlement, I got a rather large check,,,

So I bought a 3DS XL, and Luigi's Mansion 3DS game.
Apparently Nintendo is having a deal where you get a digital copy of a select game (you choose from 5 games) free.

I most likely will pick the Professor Layton 3DS game.

Planning on getting the new LEGO Undercover game as well (it's a 3DS & Wii U exclusive). Of course this is mostly for the upcoming Pokemon X/Y game.

Got LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins for 3DS.
This is a prequel to the Wii-U game LEGO City Undercover.

So far it's easily the best & biggest LEGO game I have ever played.

It is an homage to all those silly cop movies from the '70s & '80s.
So far there is a Fast & Furious reference as well.

It has a pretty "funky" sounding theme (lots of "wah wah" on guitar).
Kinda sounds a bit like "Shaft" or "Superfly".

I got two Turner Classic Movie collections. The Audie Murphy Westerns Collection (Sierra, Ride Clear of Diablo, Drums Across the River, Ride a Crooked Trail) and the Joel McCrae Westerns Collection (The Virginian, Cattle Drive, Border River, Mustang Country).

The packaging for the Joel McCrae collection is different from any I've seen; it's like a digipak, but there are no hubs for the discs, There are two holders, each holding two discs, and the slide in so one is partly under the other, and they are held in by plastic edging. Not terribly secure as two of the discs had come unlodged when I opened it. Thankfully neither disc was scratched, but I'm not a fan of this sort of packaging frown

OMG I remember Invaders From Mars! I actually liked Babylon A.D., maybe it was a better experience in the theater? I can't wait for Cloud Atlus. I don't have it preordered, but I'm meeting a friend and we're going to go pick it up from Barnes.

I picked up two shelves to accomodate my ever expanding anime and film collection. I picked up (and assembled mad) a three shelf faux wood unit from Kameapart. It's pretty nice, especially when compared to the ghetto handmedown, yardslale find, and Goodwill castoffs that it sits next to. I also discovered a consignment store near me. I've never been to one before. The shelf that I got there is kicka??! It's a collapsable four shelf unit. Unlike most collapsable units, this one is quite sturdy. The sides and back are finished maple (I think). The shelves are high quality plywood with (real?) maple veneer. The collapsing action still works like a charm. The only thing that I could find wrong with it is a small gap on the bottom side, due to a miscalculation in construction it appears. I thought about woodgluing and clamping it, but when I try to squeeze it together it places tension on the rest of that side of the unit. C`est la vie. It's sturdy anyhow, and I got it for 35 bucks. It looks great.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 05/07/13 02:30 AM

I watch the ROH TV show on occasion when it comes on (late Saturday night on a local channel).

While I kinda know some of the wrestlers, I am not really sure I like their style of wrestling.

It just seems a bit too "spot" heavy?
I mean it seems like they do move after move and don't really sell much.
At least until they hit their big move.

For example Eddie Edwards was wrestling Kyle Oreiley (I think) and he lands rather hard on the guard rail. He holds his leg for a few moments.
However about a minute later he still goes up top & jumps off and it doesn't really affect the rest of the match.

Though I agree that it's way better than the WWE crap.
Though I did not watch it, WM 29 sounded rather lame.

I hear that TNA is doing a lot better as well.
So hopefully we will start getting better product if the WWE feels threatened by either company.

O'reily is who I think you mean. Problem is selling can be weird at times on indy scene. WM29 was lame and I'm glad I didn't go. Punk/taker was good everything was pretty much predictable. I only watch wwe ppvs because my nephew orders them.
TNA it has gotten better. I never stopped liking it but Hogan has got to go. There was even stupid rumor about who was going to be next champ. They cut down on 40/50 buck ppvs. Instead doing themed taped $15 ppvs. X-Divison, Hardcore, Knockouts, Tag Tournaments, among others.

Got on wednesday:
Jay & Silent Bob Get Irish! Plus the previously mention wrestling dvds that ordered came.

John Dies At The End BD
Children of Men DVD
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 05/28/13 10:35 PM

I like Children of Men, but I have one huge problem with the scene that it gets congratulated the most for. The scene where, in a single take, we follow our protagonists through a war zone. Yes, I'm sure the scene was difficult to do & everything is very impressive (especially to have been done in a single take).
But we are NOT looking through the eyes of a character. This is a third person perspective. Ok, shakey cam is fine,.. but water & dirt splash onto the lens. Does this mean that, where the camera is, for the characters, there is a strange ghostly floating collection of water/dirt following them? It's no good! This always pulls me out of the "moment" of the scene.

John Dies At The End is a decent film & an absolutely fantastic book. If you have not read it, I'd like to suggest the audiobook. Excellent stuff.
Also the sequel, This Book Is Full Of Spider: (Seriously, Don't Touch It!), is even better.

Shaun Of The Dead

Spaced The Complete Series

It's kind of a bummer, Spaced had a loose scratched disc that wouldn't play; and all of the discs had a washed out look to the read side. Maybe the set was temperature abused or something. Barnes & Noble's customer service is being great about it. They ordered a new set to arrive in the store for me in about a week. When it does, I can bring my defective set and my receipt; and exchange it for the new one. BTW... I've seen none of the above titles.

Well, I actually bought this one ( the Series & Ova's ) through Amazon Used and New piece by piece,
and at some cost about a Month before it was put up for per-order at Rightstuf
(
and that was also the first time I knew it was even being re-released )

I watched it, and liked it enought to watch the whole thing , but I didnít keep it.
I"m kind of weird when it comes to Anime, Iím hit or miss and it could be over the most arbitrary thing.
I canít recall why on this one, but Iím like that with a lot of Anime.
I can tell you I did or didnít like it, but the why seems to be the hardest thing to articulate a lot of times.

I know I was a little ticked for having spend the money to buy it only to see it come up for sale at a much lower cost.
And Iím not passed, not liking, cancelling or selling something out of Spite crazy
So that could of been it grin

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 06/10/13 01:10 AM

With Vampire Princess Miyu I think the OVA was closer in artwork and tone to the original manga. The TV series has more of a traditional anime style and is more supernatural action rather than horror. Although the TV series has a really awesome soundtrack (which I own).

I had to trim the artwork slightly since these are a bit slimmer than the size of the case it came in.

Briscoes might be more taking time off for family then signing with wwe and rhett hasn't signed anything. My ECW and CZW dvds shipped. I ordered the ecw/czw and pwg/roh dvds on 4th july by the way. They were big sales on roh's site and highspots for him. Had the cash to catch up on some stuff.

Also recently ordered some wrestling t-shirts from prowrestlingtees web site forget to mention.

Went to the latest Pokemon TCG pre-release today.

Basically for $30 you get 8 packs (6 at the start & 2 at the end), a deckbox, and a promo card.

Didn't really get any of the "good" cards (heard this set is kinda odd as far as getting them).
I went 2-1 with a pretty decent deck.

Didn't really have any extra $ to buy the new Theme Decks, but they look pretty cool. The guy that ran the tournament was selling extra packs, but again no extra $.

BTW the average cost of a pack of Pokemon cards is about $3.99, or $4.19 at Walmart/Target.

So you do save a bit on average.

Speaking of which, don't suppose anybody is interested in purchasing some older Pokemon cards?
PM if interested.

I thought I had posted asking about how the WCW War Games DVD/Blu-Ray is, but I guess it goofed.

Just curious, cause I loved WCW (went to house shows, TV Tapings and even a few PPVs).

Though it seems like the WWE loves putting them down even though they are gone.

For example we had the "Best" of Monday Nitro set, hosted by DDP.
However they barely used DDP to explain what the next clip was, why it was important, and what his thoughts were.
Plus some of the so called "Best" parts were rather odd.
Like the nWo parody of the Horsemen, and a rather lame women's match where Medusa no sells a chair shot.

They did the same thing with the Clash of the Champions one as well.
Hosted by the guy who invented the concept (Dusty Rhodes).
Barely used him to explain those things, and worst of all didn't show at least one match/clip from all of them.

The Starcade one was good, but again it really doesn't explain why certain matches were ranked where they were.
BTW it was kinda surreal seeing a much younger version of myself.
Since they had 2 matches from the Starcade I attended back in 1993.
If your curious I am standing to the far right wearing a Sting t-shirt (IIRC it was a free gift since Starcade was on Christmas Eve) and holding a sign.
Think I was like the only person with a sign (maybe I even helped influence it a bit?) I saw myself clapping after a cool move done by the wrestlers.

It's good. Got all the war games that were filmed. There people complaining about wwe not putting on the dvd war games were not filmed. The ones on house shows. There is no host. Dusty Rhodes is there talking about history of war games. From creation to talk about some matches. Bonus matches are fine on blu ray. It's great if you want all the war games out there.

Bought my cat, Frost, the Star Wars mousie 2-pack Chewie and Yoda version from Petco. I figured they would go well with her Cooking Mama plushie, Psyduck plushie, and Mothra toy-- further cementing her status as the cutest "nerd" in the neighborhood wink

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS

Yesterday I bought and I just now finished watching all of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5.
Yup, all 20 episodes and the extra's... ( kind of stayed up all night )

I can't believe this is it till they come out with Star Wars: Rebellion next year.
And what sucks about that is now that it's Diseny it'll be on Disney XD Channel which I do not have
( and will not get ) instead of Cartoon Network frown
They said the Pilot will Air on Disney but the Series itself will be on Disney XD

What's odd is I just saw a Star Wars: The Clone Wars clip ( on-line )
it's a firefight and in it a Clone turns on and kills a Jedi, it was presented by the main guy behind the Clone Wars series.
( the guy that's always wearing the Black Cowboy Hat )
And I do not recall seeing that scene in Season 5, I think I would of remembered it,
it was an early Order 66 dry run.

If Rebellion is popular enough, and the Pilot does well when they run it on Disney Channel, they probably will run them on the Disney Channel. The episodes will come out later and most likely run sometime on Saturday. They've done that with other shows that run on XD.

OMG! Another Torchwood fan. I love that show. Although I prefer to pretend that whole Children of Earth thing never happened.

On topic, went mall hopping this afternoon and got a couple of ornaments at Hallmark (the Adventure Time Finn and Jake ornament and Phineas and Ferb Agent P to the Rescue ornament). I get the impression not many people bought ornaments this year because they're usually pretty well picked over by this point.
Got some Nightmare Before Christmas mini-figs at the Calendar store. And a new antique Lucky Buddha for my collection at the newly restored if slightly smaller antique mall.

Cause I was super bored I re-bought LEGO Star Wars 3 The Clone Wars.
This time for the 3DS.
I also got the DS LEGO Star Wars The Complete Saga (again).

Can't wait to see & play The LEGO Movie (and game).
BTW LEGO The Hobbit is also coming this April.
Which is kinda odd since the 3rd movie doesn't come out until December.
So I guess like the LEGO Pirates game, there will be "spoilers" for the new movie.
LEGO Pirates had stuff from On Stranger Tides BEFORE the movie was out.

I just ordered a complete collection of the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes movies on Blu-Ray from Ebay.

I was thinking of it because my father, who recently passed away, was a big detective movie fan. I inherited DVD sets of Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto and the Thin Man movies, but all the Sherlock Holmes films were on VHS so I gave those to my cousin (who still uses VHS).

While in Costco I picked up a copy of the 70th anniversary Blu-ray of Citizen Kane. I also picked up this huge box set which purports to have 200 horror movies on 50 DVDs. Actually, since all the discs seem to have at least 4 films and some have more there may be more than 200 movies; however there are at least 20-30 that are not in any way, shape or form horror movies. There are 6 Bulldog Drummond films and about 10 Sherlock Holmes films (only 4 from the Basil Rathbone series) along with other non-horror films. As one might expect, the prints used for the most part are not very good and all are presented in 4:3 mode. However, as someone who used to love watching oddball Euro-horror movies on late night TV there are a number of hard-to-find items here so, considering it cost $50 I feel like I got my money's worth.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 01/24/14 12:24 PM

Tolerating 4:3 is doable if it's the only edition of something available. kiku says: "Better to have it in 4:3, than to not have it at all."

I'm a religion scholar who plans on eventually writing a book on anime and religion. I'm very excited.

I hit Wal-Mart today and picked up the following:

Action Classics Unleashed - Steven Seagal (Black Dawn, The Foreigner, Out of Reach, Today You Die)
Action Classics Unleashed - Steven Seagal (Flight of FUry, Out For A Kill, Shadow Man, Urban Justice)
Action Classics Unleashed - Jean-Claude Van Damme (Assassination Games, Double Team, Maximum Risk, Until Death)
Hopalong Cassidy - Ultimate Collector's Edition (66 films on 14 discs, too many to list)
Superman II - The Richard Donner Cut
Superman III/Superman IV

All for 5 bucks except for the Hoppy collection ($14.96).

After checking out some clips on YouTube I decided to do the "Black Crow" pledge ($100) for Wakfu on Kickstarter. When I first heard of this I wasn't interested as I figured it was just some silly Flash-animated kiddy show; when I got a sense of what it is really like I decided I wanted to help get it released. The main reason I went to the level I did was that it includes a download of the soundtrack-the music really helped sell me on this show. I also found the dialog in the clip I saw to be very clever and funny. This level also includes a figurine (or is it 2-there were 2 in the picture) and the artbooks.

Hey, Chuck - I just pledged for this today as well, but only for the basic Blu-ray tier - what swayed me was when they added Season 2 to the Blu-ray - 2 seasons for just $36 US...

I also pledged for the Mai Mai Miracle Kickstarter which just opened at noon today, that one is similar to a slice-of-life Studio Ghibli movie...

For the former, I had to go for an expensive Region 2 PAL import. It's one of my favorites; fortunately I have my computer hooked up to my TV so I can use VLC player to watch it.

There were very few movies that did well in theaters in 2013. And Ender's Game probably wouldn't have done so "poorly" if it hadn't cost so much to make.

I'm going to be showing Ender's Game at my March Monthly Movie Nights, gotta pick up a copy on Blu within the next two weeks... I really enjoyed Oblivion, too. A little remeniscent of the Indie movie "Moon" but on a much grander scale and budget!

I picked up all of Lexx at Wal-Mart today. I caught bits and pieces when it aired years ago on Sci-Fi and remembered liking it, so I figured I'd take a chance and pick it up as it was quite inexpensive (much cheaper than on Amazon).

Did you get LEXX on DVD or Blu-ray? I assume a show like that might only be on DVD...I also saw random episodes on the Sci-fi Channel, it seemed a bit weird but quite interesting at the same time...

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 02/18/14 05:27 PM

I've got all four volumes of LEXX. I watched it not too long ago and really enjoyed it. It's definitely very weird. Somewhere between pure genius, and pure inanity.

It's on DVD. I'm not sure if it's even out on Blu-ray but I could be mistaken.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 02/22/14 01:48 PM

Along with a bunch of other stuff ( I'm using my new fye gift card ) I finally bought White House Down ( BD )
I couldn't help but to think of White House Down every time I saw Olympus Has Fallen on my Shelf

I finally had to buy it, because overall as a Movie I liked it. ( but not as much as Olympus has fallen )

I had put off buying it because
1. I hated Jamie Foxxís Obama impression, he should of just played it straight without the impression.
2. The Filmmakers repeated in you face jab at the War mongering Weapon Manufactures and Republicans
being behind the attack on the White House. ( by way of dialog spoken by Foxx's character )

Even though itís revealed that Foxxís Character is wrong about them being behind the Attack, he still says they were.
And I didn't care for that because I thought it made him look a little stupid ( Foxxís character )
for clinging to the Evil Weapon Makers and Republicans thing .

But I'm sure doing it was a fun "must do" thing for the Filmmakers and Foxx.
Passing up a Jab like that most of been to hard to pass up.
And I can see how Foxx couldn't help but to do his Obama Impression, since he was playing a President

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/13/14 09:48 PM

Sold some old books & jigsaw puzzles I didn't want anymore at a local Half Price Books.
They only offered me $8 for like 7 of the books, since I didn't want to haul the rest back home, I just gave it to them.

Seriously that place is such a scam.
They pay you pennies for rare/OOP DVDs and then sell them for more than what you got paid.

Anyhow I did find a rather rare book called Backwards.
It's part of the Red Dwarf Sci-Fi/Comedy book series.
There's only one other book from the series I am missing called The Last Human.

Again most of these books were written in the late '90s, early 2000s.
So they are way out of print.

Not much of interest in the anime section (at least for me).
They did have a boxed set of AI Yori Aoishi Enishi, a Bandai Legends version of GITS: SAC 2nd Gig (for more than I paid for it), thinpack version of Gungrave, a boxed set of Noir, thinpack of Madlax, and a old boxed set of FLCL (looked like it had the soundtrack, a book & other nick-knacks).

It's really hard to get all of the episodes I like on DVD. Only bits and pieces are available.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/15/14 02:57 PM

I did some bargain shopping today when I was out and about. At Wal-Mart, I found in the $5 DVD bin:

The Expendables
Vincent Price Collection: The Pit and the Pendulum / Tales of Terror
WWE Greatest Rivalries: Shawn Michaels vs. Brett Hart
WWE The Rock: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment

It's been a while since I've picked up some wrestling videos. I haven't followed wrestling closely in years, but both of these sets have a lot of matches I had seen years ago, so it should be fun watching them again!

Then I stopped at a local music store and picked up some CDs:

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Jimmy Thackery and The Drivers - Switching Gears
The Yardbirds - Having a Rave Up

My last stop was at Dollar General, where I found a couple Timothy Zahn books I hadn't read:

Angelmass
Night Train to Rigel

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 03/25/14 07:40 PM

Picked up a couple cheap movie collections today:

Actiom Classics Unleashed - Cuba Gooding Jr.
The Devil's Tomb
Dirty
Linewatch
Hero Wanted

Actiom Classics Unleashed - Cuba Gooding Jr.
End Game
Hardwired
The Hit List
Ticking Clock

Action Collection - Samuel L. Jackson
Arena
Cleaner
Lakeview Terrace
Unthinkable

I probably never would have bought any of these titles individually, but for $5.00 each for these collections, they are hard to beat.

One criticism: the Samuel L. Jackson collection comes in a mini stack-pac case with three discs, Arena and Cleaner on one, the other two on individual discs. The other two have two movies on each disc, mounted on each side of the case.

Is that the recent Thunderbirds where it was Live-Action instead of puppets?
I thought that was actually pretty well done.
I liked the little "nod" they did to the puppets by giving the actors strings in one scene.

Might have to buy it...
BTW Thunderbirds...Are GO & Thunderbird 6 are coming to Blu-Ray soon.

Kinda wish they would make a more consolidated version of the Thunderbirds show. I had it for a while, but only having like 4-5 episodes a disc was kinda dull. Plus IIRC it was a bit expensive to buy the whole thing.
I sold it for $, due to lack of it.
Wish there had been someplace like Buybacks to sell it (pretty sure they just opened their first store after I sold it, or maybe it was too far to drive when you are unemployed), cause HPB didn't give me much for it.

Right when the Kids are about to take off in Thunderbird 1, they say Thunderbird's are Go and put their hands on the engine controls,
and one of the Hands is a Puppet hand with strings on it. ( yeah when I saw that in the Theater I got all teary eyed & happy )

They do have the Series on BD now however.......
I read some stuff on Amazon about the Bluray Release when I bought the Puppet Series & Movies for my Grandson.
I would of bought the BD for myself and given my Grandson the DVD Set I have but.....
In the comments Section they are saying that they changed the video to widescreen in the new BD release ( for the Puppet Series )
And in doing so they cut off part of the top and bottom of the Picture,
and they say it's fixed and you can't change it yourself with your BD Player video contorls.

So like I said I just stayed with the DVD Vesion

Man, I should get some Thunderbirds - used to love that as a kid, watched it a lot - I think it aired in my area as a Sunday morning show, rather than on Saturday mornings with the usual cartoon fare... Gumby, Davey and Goliath, Cisco Kid and Lone Ranger were Sunday morning shows as well... Those were the days! cool

I just picked up an autographed 15 CD/1 DVD set of Kitaro (he did the OP and ED for the Ninja Scroll series) from Domo Music this morning, on sale for less than half price. I've been a big fan of Kitaro's music for at least 25-30 years, but I don't own more than one or two CDs of his music, and a few LP albums - so I figured I get this one since it was on sale... and an autograph is always a nice addition!

Yeah and it's great that my 5 year old grandson is into it now.
My wife picks him up from per-K a lot, and his first words in the door ( lately ) is "I want to watch the Thunderbirds".

He's going to freak when he gets his own set of the Complete Series and Movies from us.
There are all in the mail to us now.

I can't believe it's been 10 years already since the Live Action Movie came out.

The Wolf On Wall Street on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

I LOVE Scorsese films, but the only thing I hate about him is that he refuses to release a director's cut on any of his films. I would kill to see the original cut of Wolf on Wall Street (which was roughly 4 & a half hours before being cut down to just shy of 3 hours to avoid a NC-17 rating) but stuff like Goodfellas, The Departed as well.

My eyes are at the point where I can't use Iron Sights anymore.
My reading glasses would bring the Iron Sights into focus, but everything else would be blurry .
My Prescription Glasses would bring everything beyond into focus.,
but the Sights would be blurry.

So I've been reduced to using Scopes that I can adjust the focus on.
This is my first time trying a Green or Red Dot Sight, no need to have it just a couple inches from your eye or adjust the focus

Up until recently I could only use my Glasses outside, because everything in my House was too near for my Prescription,
but now if I want to see things on TV Sharp & Clear or read On-Screen Text I have to wear my Prescription Glasses frown

Now I probably should Ghost the whole drive to a backup file on an external hard drive... Frickin' lot of work before I can even use the dang thing...

It's only 21mm at it's thickest point, excluding the stand, which folds flat, so it is very easily portable. I plan to take it with me when I travel for my hotel stays... cool

And, it does play Blu-ray movies/anime in full 1080p HD rather nicely!

Hmm.. I have the first four season box sets of Babylon 5 on DVD, but not season 5. Got those four used at a yard sale about 5 years ago, for just $20 - $5 per season. I have yet to watch the series, only saw a handful of episodes when it was in reruns on TV...

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/17/14 10:16 PM

I have recently been collecting certain kinds of movies; firstly, I have always liked anthology horror films so I picked up a bunch of those:

Dead of NIght DVD (Dan Curtis TV movie from the 70's)
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors UK R2 DVD
The House that Dripped Blood DVD
The Monster Club BD
Tales that Witness Madness BD
Trilogy of Terror DVD

I also bought a bunch more mostly after going through some Best of (and Worst of) lists on YouTube:

Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collectors Edition BD
Dead Snow BD
The Iron Giant DVD
King Kong vs. Godzilla BD
Nazis at the Center of the Earth BD
Quatermass and the Pit R2(B) BD
Rabid DVD
Redneck Zombies 20th Anniversary Edition DVD
Zombie 2-Disc Ultimate Edition BD

I have also finally ordered a region-free BD player. Ironically, I didn't do it so much for anime (the UK releases often don't appeal to me even though they are cheaper) but for other things. It will also play all region DVDs which is helpful because, even though I can watch other region DVDs on my computer which is hooked to my HDTV, I have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get them to play with the correct aspect ratio. It will be much easier to watch them normally.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 04/18/14 01:59 AM

It's amazing how I find ways to spend money online. I was looking at Facebook and I clicked on an article about NASA finding a (somewhat) earthlike planet. The site with the article had another article about the Wu-Tang Clan selling one copy of an album for $5 million so I had to look at that to see what that was about, which led me to another article about an album by Richard D. James. He usually records under the name Aphex Twin and I own a number of his albums. Apparently there was an obscure vinyl-only album for which only a few test copies were released which are worth like $13,500 each. An owner of the album has now set up a Kickstarter campaign (with the full agreement of the artist) whereby anyone who pledges $16 gets a lossless digital download of the album, so I went ahead and pledged $16.

I missed this post somehow - Are you perhaps going to get/build one of those mini ITX systems as your HTPC? My HTPC is not quite that tiny - it is a SFF (Small Form Factor) Dell Optiplex 755 that I bought used at a computer show, and built it up with a quad-core processor, a video card powerful enough for 1080p streaming/viewing, and a blu-ray burner drive. I also had to buy and install the optional PCI riser in it so it had enough slots for the cards I needed to put in it. That thing is really crammed full inside, not much room for air, but it's been running like a champ for a couple years now...

My other two computers I've transferred over into 4U rack mount cases on slider rails and mounted in the enclosed computer rack I got from work. The one is my primary i5 system I use every evening, and the other is a very old AMD PC being used as a 24/7 Ventrilo server, to do voice chat with my friends, similar to Skype, I guess - but it's been running continuously now for the last 10 years or so, probably before Skype was even around... smile

It was cheap and I have final wars already. I didn't know which one to get. Decide to go with that one. Suncoast had a bunch of zilla dvds for cheap for 5 or 8 bucks a piece.

It was in a somewhat nearby mall near Ft. Hood.

BTW the new DVDs of Godzilla are not that expensive anyways.
Maybe $8 tops.

I miss some things about Suncoast and FYE, but their prices were not always the best. The store I miss most is Babbage. Gamestop is fine for certain things but Babbage was a mecca for gamer/ anime geeks.

And yeah, malls don't have much anymore for anyone other than teenagers who want overpriced crappy clothes -_-"

For real. It's just a wasteland. There used to be so many cool stores in malls. Everything from ecofriendly oriented gift shops to gadget shops. Now it's as you a saidÖ a friggin' wasteland. For the love of Pete, they even took out the Cinnabon.

Yeah there is still one near me. They been starting up anime events again. One on june 1 but since weekend before animenext don't have any money really. Any extra cash not being put away make sure other stuff taken care of before AN.
I didn't realize godzilla dvds lately have been 8 bucks but I think they were all that 20 bucks at least. I could have been wrong and were re releases. Nice either way.

KB Toys went under due to Walmart.
They had toys that were overpriced, while Walmart was way cheaper.
Think Toys R Us bought out the rest of the company.
Since their little "kiosk" stores (at outlet malls) are very similar to a KB Toys Outlet.

Though the KB toys did help me when I needed a job on a couple of occasions.

Again there might be a couple around way out in the sticks (before I moved there was one somewhere in Burlington, WA).

Depp's Alice is underrrated IMO. I loved it!

I have three different DVD editions of Metropolis on my shelf, in addtion to the anime; not to mention the anime soundtrack. That soundtrack merits mention. It's an excellent combination of Dixieland and experimental electronica.

Yeah I've got the 2002 Restoration and the Anime as well.
The 1927 Film is Full Blown Silent Movie Overacting at its Best and/or Worst,
ether way you want to look at it you're right.
This 2010 Restoration has about 25 more minutes than the 2002 Restoration.
--------------------------------------------------------
Yeah I love Depp's Alice in Wonderland.

You know, you go to see a Movie with Stars like, Tom Cruise, Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford, etc,
and that's who you see in the Movie. ( and I'm a big Fan of all of them )

But you go see a Movie Staring Johnny Depp, and you don't see Johnny Depp,
you see the character he's playing.
I think Depp is the Best Contemporary "Character Actor" we have right now.

Ah man, I wish I had looked through my "Now Playing" Guide for TCM.
The 2010 Restoration just played this morning ( May 30th 6am )
Itís run time was listed as 149 minutes, and thatís the listed run time for the 2010 Restoration.
( the 2002 Restoration is list as 124 minutes )

I could of watched it, since I was up all night and still am ( Iíll just sleep well tonight )
If I stay up till about Noon-ish then Iím good till Bedtime tonight,
The whole second wind thing kind of kicks in.

Man this explains why I suddenly started thinking about Metropolis and found the 2010 Restoration
on Amazon.

I was up all night watching Samurai Girls, and missed the 6am airtime.
But I didnít know it till a little while ago, I was looking through the TV Guide and the TCM Guide,
to decide what to watch when I saw it had Aired.

This kind of Premonition thing happens with me a lot,
to bad it's never anything that would cause me to help mankind or anything.
Itís always something minor .

Well, Iím going to watch Aika R-16 & Agent Aika, thatíll Cheer me up for sure.
And then Iíll watch Aesthetica of a Rouge Hero, Iím just killing time with my T&A Animes till
Samurai Bride and Tenjho Tenge get here.

Iím still thinking about returning Samurai Bride when it gets here and buy the BD of it.
I have Samurai Girls on DVD and the third Disc is just Japanese Extras, I didnít even take the 3rd Disc out.
I left it in the Case and but it in Storage, I put the 2 Discís with the Series on it in one of my 14 Disc Anime Collection Cases.
( like all my Anime consisting of 1 or 2 Discís )
I just pulled Samurai Girls out of the Anime Collection Case it was in
since itíll now be getting itís own Samurai Girls/Bride Complete Collection with the addiction of Samurai Bride,
Iím assuming that Samurai Brideís 3rd Disc is just Japanese Extras as well ( but Iíll see )

Update
Yeah I decided to stop talking about it and just do it.
I just Ordered the BD copy for both Samurai Girls and Samurai Bride,
And I got the RA# to return the DVD copy of Samurai Bride thatís still in the Mail

Cool beans! Looking forward to seeing it, finally... I had planned to show Elysium way back at my January Movie Night, but I had to cancel those showings because of my refrigerator ice-maker flood back then, which had the house and basement all messed up... Captain Philips I got more for my Mother, she wanted to see that one.

Re: What did you just buy (non anime)? - 06/04/14 06:15 PM

I've heard Captain Phillips is fantastic, it's on my DVR but haven't watched it yet (my DVR is 98% full lol)

Elysium however is a TON of fun. And yes, it should look beautiful on that big screen!

I'm holding off on 300: Rise of an Empire for a while.
I saw it in the Theater and thought the use of Buckets of Blood ( CGI of course )
for every freaking Sword swing or Jab was just too much.
I quickly lost interest in it ( while I was watching it ).
I know Zack didn't Direct it, but he was a Producter, he or someone should of said "Less Blood".
And it's not that I have a thing about Blood, it just seemed to hokey

Where they trying to top 300 ? ( I guess that was their thinking )

On the flip side, I've watched my Copy of 300 4 or 5 times now.
And there was the 3 times I saw it in the Theater

Have you seen the Spartacus TV series from Starz at all yet, B-dub? Blood and Sand, and the other 3 seasons? That series has Buckets 'o Blood ala that 300-style slo-mo watery stuff - but an extremely good, violent series... with tons of "Fanservice", both true Yuri and Yaoi, too, lol... cool

Spartacus > 300

All day every day. That is how you do an over the top history show.

History's Vikings is also very good and better then what Hollywood puts out of Middle Age England stuff.

Quigley is good movie, and one of my favorites of Selleck. I've always had a soft spot for a good western (even if Quigley isn't technically a western, since it takes place in Australia).
