I've been downloadin' lots o' stuff thanks to the magic of torrents, but here's what I've bought in recent weeks:

Sadly enough, I've got a desktop whose sole purpose if downloading torrents, then transfering the files onto an external hard drive that's completely dedicated to holding onto these files until I have the time to burn them to DVDs on my laptop... there's literally 120 movies on it right now and I'm dreading the day it finally fills up, because I'll have to buy another one... stupid evil obsessive compulsive movie collecting disorder....

I haven't bought much lately as Netflix recently added me as a beta-tester of their "watch now" program.  It allows users to watch movies instantly from netflix, streaming over the internet.  I just hook up the computer to my TV via S-Video and it's as good as a DVD for me.....minus the extra features.

Otherwise, I picked up that Phantasm sphere set which has yet to arrive.

I was at Best Buy and on an impulse (and due to Andrew's review of Day of the Animals) I got this:



It was a total steal for $14.99 (although it's even cheaper on some online sites).  These are the special edition DVD's, too.  Grizzly is 2 discs, Devil Dog is 2 discs, and Day of the Animals is the special edition.  It amuses me that this box is cheaper than any of those DVD's sell for individually.  I've come to love Media Blasters and I really want to get the post apocalyptic set and the Art of the Gun set.

Sort of.  It's a European set.  It has all of the Phantasm films and an additional DVD filled with special features.  All of the DVDs are housed inside a replica of one of the Tall Man's spheres.  The downside of the set is the price and the fact that you need an all region DVD player to play them.

I bought it because of the sphere and because it looks like we may never see Phantasm 2 on DVD here in the states.

Those are the SE editions in that set?  Curses, another DVD set that moves up higher on my priority list and I already have two out of the three movies...

I had the same impulse when I saw the Zombie sequels and Cannibal movies sets from Shriek Show. I'm all over this like moonshine on a redneck zombie!

I have no doubt that there are, but I'm at a loss to mention any at the moment.  If you don't have an all region player, you could always use your PC.  If you have a DVD drive then you can use a program like AnyDvd www.slysoft.com to make your computer look like an all region player.  It's what I used to do when importing films from Japan and such before buying an all region set top player.

You don't need to buy an expensive region free DVD player. Check out my post here: http://www.badmovies.org/forum/index.php/topic,113653.msg140345.html#msg140345

Menard,

The Philips DVP642 is what I have actually.  I converted it over to a all region player with a small code that I found online.  It's great!

thank you menard for pointing out that post. it seems i dont have a "hackable" dvd player at the moment but if i can find some non-USA movies im interested in enough ill be sure to look for such a model of player. unfortunately the computer im using is still running windows 1998 so i dont think its going to be good enough to support a dvd player anytime soon.

Put in a pre-order on that Pan's collectors disc.  I've been dying to see it for a while.  Picked up the Brotherhood Of Death disc after reading a review of it a while back and I needed a filler to get the free shipping.  Black guys get back from Vietnam and their town has been taken over by the KKK.  Ass kicking ensues.  Sounds good to me!

I also want to see "Pan's Labyrinth" and wow, that double feature disc looks like a must see.  Ah, you guys are always bad for my Amazon wish list...
