I only started to buy mine recently and I'm very picky.

And i'm up to about 20... so I don't know how long you've been collecting, but I've seen way bigger ones.

I think Astroboy has us all beat

The criterion ones ran about $60-80 bucks apeice. The Killer, Hard Boiled, Robocop and Magnolia are no longer in print, and therefore have gone up in value dramatically.

From the Ministry of we should merge to form DVDevastor and vanquish DVDAstroboy

I hate to be a negative type, dont get me wrong I love collecting movies. I have lots of VHS (whoopie doo) and I just got a DVD player so I have like 6 DvD's.
I am going to be picky about what I buy. El Presidente do you just hunt the bargain bins and buy everything, or are those all movies that you honestly love and watch alot?

But I look at your list, and I know you are a movie enthusiast via your movie realted threads and opinions, but looking at you rlist I can only assume some were gifts?
Armageddon...Charlies Angles....Face Off....Ghost Dog......please tell me these were gifts......
Not trying to dis' ya just curious.

Also Baraka on DVD did you get that in store or special order? My favorite piece of film to date.

From the ministry of not trying to be too critical but most likely am

Dear mr highstepper,

You need to get out more and discontinue this full fledged obsession with movies and DVD's. I am worried that you are missing lifes treasures like the sun, the moon, and the stars.
Thank you
Now I'm off to watch 15 hours of James Bond, so go outside and get active dammit

One of my 4 DVD's is Baraka. I got it at a small video store near Broadview/Danforth.

I love this movie.

PS Ghost Dog for real, Highsteppa? I despised this movie.

Love of films, the way they are made and all the goodies that come with them. No offence taken at all, as I can understand the question. Most of the time I purchase them, however a few have been given to me a promos (which cost nothing at all), but most promos I have to give back.

Nope on all four.

Armageddon - Criterion Edition -&gt; I disliked the movie intensely. I even got up in my seat at the end of the movie and screamed at the top of my lungs "THAT FUCKING SUCKED!!!! WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT GARBAGE?!?!!?", but the DVD is very good and extremely comprehensive. It was one of the best DVD releases of 2000.

Charlie's Angels -&gt; if you take it even remotely seriously, you're going to hate it. I expected complete crap when I saw it in theatres, but it was actually a lot of fun in a brain dead kinda way. You could see that no-one was taking the movie, the script, nor the action, and they seemed to be having a hoot making it. Think Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness, and you have the proper mindset of this film.

Face/Off -&gt; John Woo did rip himself off in this, but it's still his best and most exciting American film he's made to date. Also, it's a fuck of a lot of fun to watch two of the hammiest actors just go up to the acting trough and go waaaaaaaaaaay over the top with it. It's kind of fun seeing Nick Cage-Doing-Travolta-Doing-cage sorta deal and vice versa. I am a devout John Woo fan, and I still think this absolutely rocked. Best action film of 1997. Boat chase was incredible.

Ghost Dog - The Way of the Samurai -&gt; what's wrong with this? I thought it was an excellently off beat film from Jim Jarmush and certainly something completely unexpected and different from him and Forrest Whitticker. I esp. loved the Hagakure passages that acted as curtains.

Not at all, different strokes for different folks. I know I've been on the warpath for some films that almost everyone else liked. Film is art and art is about what you take away from it, in my eyes

It was given to me as a birthday gift a year or two ago. One of my faves too.

Again, not at all, I welcome people who challenge my views, provided that they have an argument. And like I said, there's some films that an individual will like and no one else will (Fuck, I liked Mission to Mars, what does that say to you?), but if you like it, why be ashamed about it? If you dislike it, same question.

Without sounding like an ignoramus, I was curious as to where you get your DVD's and how much you would say an average DVD costs you. Basically what I am getting at is I have a DVD and a sick home theatre system. I have had my equipment for about a year and haven't bought one DVD yet. I rent all the time and I only usually notice the prices on the DVD's at Blockbuster. I haven't been too keen on buying DVD's at $20 bucks a pop to get my collection going. I already have a hard enough time controlling my CD spending as it is and know that I would only start blowing huge cash on DVD's if I were to start. The catch though, is I love nothing more than popping a good flick into the DVD, turning up the volume, sparking one and chiling out DVD styles in my apt.

Please advise Minister of slapping DVD's all over the place Highsteppa


James, sorry I couldn't make it to your Satoshi bash on the weekend. I was stuck at work all night, literally. When I drove by System at 5am, I couldn't push myself to hop into the party at that hour. I'll grab ya a drink another time and we'll chill.

Peace,

Just a quick question, does anyone know where I can get a DVD copy of Chopper in Tdot?

Hats off to you then El Presidente, just didnt wanna come of as a prick.

Im for sure going to buy Baraka this weekend...any suggestions where to shop for DVD's? Not neccessarily based on price but more on selection, off the track titles and such?

If you want popular titles, Future Shop is a great place to start, specialty titles like the Criterion series go to HMV or Suspect Video on Queen and Bathurst (Sam's had one of the best Criterion displays I have ever come across). Also, laughably enough, Walmart and Zellers sometimes has some pretty popular (and very safe) stuff at shockingly low prices (I picked up The Messenger for $13.99 and Night of the Living Dead for $7.00).

There are also other places, like the Game Shack across from the 333 Yonge st. HMV manages to sell some brand spanking new DVD's for 3-4 dollars less. I saw Tron there for 24.99. Look around.

As for the Hong Kong stuff, Chinatown has an incredibly vast and wide selection of DVD's you just have to look for them. Shaolin Soccer, The Mission, The Suspect and Armour of God 2 were all $20.00 and are all zone playing DVD's. The quality isn't quite as up to par as the North American DVD's, but at least you get the original edits of the films, and the subtitles.

No prob, bro, I read it, and was sorry you couldn't make it out. Catch him next time, as he was just as good, if not better the last time he was here in May or June, can't remember.

Trophy if you present it to me in a bikini, joey.

Medal if you present it in a g-string and makeup (heavy on the lipstick)

I don't have a ton of DVDs. Maybe a hundred or so. I only really buy stuff though that I think I will watch multiple times. There are lots of movies out there that I just can't see myself watching over and over, and so then I will just rent them.

A couple of friends of mine have about 500+. And of course they admit that they haven't even watched half of them. Sure it would be nice to have a full library for guests to choose from, but then again, I am buying these movies for myself, not for my guests.

I guess I'd rather spend the money on a solid home theatre setup than on than a crapload of DVDs. After all, what good is watching all those DVDs on a sub par system.

Cheers ... Ian

The only DVD that I am hoping for to be released is "Carpool". Although I have a feeling that the market demand for this film just won't justify the cost of the studio releasing it.
