I turn 20 on Nov. 7th…I’ll have about $100 to spend :O
This thread brings back good memories.
I think all of us became tapped out after the summer sale…. i think if i get 10 titles that would be beyond my expectations for this one.
It is times like this I wish I was a woman, cause you get mad bank for donating your eggs. Ok, no more ghetto talk.
I have $100 from my last film’s budget that I didn’t spend, because I was able to borrow all of my props!!!! YAY for me!
The film gods smile down on us once again. I didn’t spend as much as I should have during the first sale. Know what that means? It’s time to throw down.
If you see me in the store, leggo my Ozu.
-The Complete Monterey Pop Festival (Blu)
-Eclipse Series 2: Documentaries of Louis Malle
-Eclipse Series 10: Silent Ozu
-Eclipse Series 18: Dusan Makavejev
-Sawdust and Tinsel
-Wings of Desire (Blu)
I may throw in another Eclipse set if I have enough money, but for now that is what I plan on purchasing. I’m so excited!
Gah, I’ve already spent 60 bucks this day on Modern Warfare 2. Wings of Desire was going to be a must regardless, though.
Get Shimizu, Drew.
I don’t have much money, and I’m trying to save, but the Teshigahara box set is calling my name…
Nathan, Nay the extra Eclipse I would get is Rossellini. Is Shmizu something to look for also?
Well, maybe you could get one or two of the films through netflix, and see what you think. That set was a real discovery for me.
My parents told me that they were going to be doing their christmas shopping early this year, and so this sale couldn’t have come at a better time! Great freaking news!
Good thing I didn’t buy Z this week. It looks like I need to start making a list…
What I want for sure:
ZPlaytime BDScenes from a Marriage
Might buy these but will need to watch first:
Wings of Desire BDDownhill RacerThe Golden Age of Television
And maybe replace burned copies of these:
Last Temptation of ChristRiffifiIl PostoDiabolique
Blind buy Wings of Desire. You have the Drew Gregory seal of approval.
Are Eclipses 50% off also?
If not, I want blood.
The “Drew Gregory seal of approval” has lost some of it’s panache ever since the East of Eden Debacle of 2009.
Definitely aiming for
Eclipse 17: Nikkatsu Noir
The Battle of Algiers
The Last Temptation of Christ
The Ruling Class
Youth of the Beast
The Third Man (Blu-Ray)
400 Blows (Blu-Ray)
Sansho the Bailiff
Gonna be some tough decisions.
This isn’t exactly what my wallet needs right now, but it won’t hurt too much. So, I’ll be going for these:
The 400 Blows (essential art house edition, because I can access the special features through other avenues)Umberto D. Les Enfants Terribles Late Spring
the East of Eden Debacle of 2009, The Dreamers Debacle of 2009, the……
It’s like Drew’s an enemy of the people. :o
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? WOW. Didn’t expect that to happen again so soon!
Will definitely try for Wings of Desire, Monsoon Wedding, Repulsion, Grey Gardens, The Passion of Joan of Arc, and Hiroshima, Mon Amour (which was yanked out of my hands last time because they couldn’t get it in time or something…). Will have to watch some more Kurosawa and Bergman before I decide to go whole-hog and get Yojimbo/Sanjuro and Faith Trilogy box sets (although, being severely afraid of spiders I still might forgo the latter; that cover creeps me out). Maybe some Melville and Godard too. If my wallet can handle it.
OOOOOOOOH this is so exciting!
After reading yesterday that another sale was happening in two weeks, I immediately started a wish list. I have been on air ever since that post yesterday. And out of curiosity, I came back to this thread this morning to see if anyone else started a list. Surprise!—or perhaps not!!—many of us did.
I’m just really discovering Jean Renior and Kurosawa, so I want to buy Ikiru, High and Low, Boudu Saved From Drowning, and Le Bete Humaine.
Not again! Looks like I’ll be going without food for awhile.
I missed the last one, so for me this is super exciting!
Can’t go too crazy even with the sale, but I’ve gone long enough without owning Rules of the Game, Tokyo Story and Wings of Desire. Oh crap, how can I not get Black Narcissus! This could get ugly.
My mind is telling me no, but my heart is telling me yes.
