Eh, I haven't seen the 'Vice yet. If I like it, I'll go for the Dir Cut for sure -- thanks for the heads up!

* (Well, I say "last", but there are the MoH episodes, the horrible Stendahl, and of course Mother of Tears to come.)
Is this a US version of Four Flies or has it come out in Italy?

Got a DVD in the post this morning: Me and My People: Stories - 1984 - 2006 (documentary about German hardcore band Spermbirds).

Do You Like Hitchcock and The Card Player both arrived today; less than a week from the States. Not bad.

I picked up the new Don't Look Now DVD from Virgin (now Zaavi) at the weekend - £5. Includes an intro from Alan Jones and an interview with composer Pino Donaggio. Haven't even broken the seal on it yet, as I've been powering through stuff from LoveFilm and Blockbusters.

This week I took delivery of the Pete Walker coffin-shaped box set with House of Whipcord and Die Screaming Marianne (amongst others). Sometime around September I might get round to stemming the rentals flow and watching some of them.

I love what Pete Walker I've seen (and especially his momentous leading lady Sheila Keith) and McGillivray is a witty, witty b'stard, but I found Die Screaming, Marianne to be one of the most soporiphic picures I've ever seen. Was I having an off day os is it really that dull?

It's impossible to go wrong with the delectable Frightmare and House Of Whipcord though.

Need to pick up that box from somewhere (I assume it's OOP now). And somehow find a coy of House Of The Long Shadows.

I've had a mini spree recently (Gotta love the student loan) and I've actually gone all Frightfesty....

Isolation - didn't enjoy it much at FF, but on reflection it's not as bad as I thought!

Wrong Turn 2 - I still love this movie, I think watching it every day for a week since it arrived (commentaries and all which is a first for me) is testament to that, although I left it at my friends house so wont have it til the 16th :cry:

Hatchet - Waiting for this to arrive this week, very very excited!!!

Broken - Again waiting for it to arrive but I loved it the first time round so hopefully it's as good as I remember.

Others include: May (On FF recommendation) Not bad, not great.
Hostel 2 - I watched this straight after the overnight sleepy queue this year and was ultra freaked out by it. It's really not that bad when you're not sleep deprived.
Sunshine and Tron. Just because.
Lots and lots of new things, even though I've seen them all before.
Have you heard of my friends capital letter and comma?

No? Well perhaps you should try them sometime... correct usage will do wonders for your social life.

That's what's worrying me as it's the reason I've held out from buying the R1 as I wanted the commentary purely for nostalgia.... hmmm

I watched Weeds Season 1 on bluray... a lot of noise on the picture but STILL a really good tv show, can't believe I haven't bothered with this before!

Not a DVD but the first episode of Reaper was classy. Not surprising as it was directed by Kevin Smith.

I ordered a 6 movie Ed Wood box on amazon last week, should be here any day now. Also got demons 1 and 2 and the zombie dead last week.

today I took some ps2 games to computer exchange and swaped them for loads of goodies, including The Roost, The black angel, hostel, cabin fever, ghost in the shell, texas chainsaw massacre 3, end of the century (the story of the ramones), sky high, donnie darko, and some Jet Li stuff.

no idea when I'm gonna watch all this stuff though, still got the whole hammer horror box to go through as well.
