DVD Craze Hunt Fun 2: DVDs from the past month (by memory/highlights) December 11, 2007

Posted by samtaco in DVD, Reviews, Thoughts.

Well it’s been early September since I posted about my DVD craze hunt. I’ve gotten a lot of DVDs in the past three months and I haven’t even kept you, the loving viewers info about it! So here’s some I either just got or highlights of what I got from the past months. Again all from my sister’s store where I get them cheep!


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – Criterion Collection
Price: $20
I got this Gilliam film around late September. Based on Hunter S. Thompson ‘s novel, this classic is about Raul Duke and his lawyer, Dr. Gonzo as they travel to Las Vegas to cover a bike race and at the same time think how the 60’s “American dream” is no more which is helped in large part by the huge amount of drugs and alcohol. The DVD itself is another Criterion classic with commentary with Thompson, interviews, Documentaries about Thompson, and so much more.

Naked Lunch – Criterion Collection
Price: $16
Got this around October, this David Cronenberg film based (kind of) on William S. Burroughs’ novel is about an exterminator as he gets a addiction to his bug powder, accidentally kills his wife, and gets involved in a secret government in Africa run by giant bugs. One the oddest films ever that makes not sure if I want to read the book! The DVD is great with the extras mainly about Burroughs. Good Stuff Criterion!

Videodrome– Criterion Collection (with missing cover sleeve)
Price: $20
Also got this in October, another David Cronenberg film, as James Woods, a cable TV operator loses his mind after founding a program called Videodrome. Classic Cronenberg and one of the best Criterions! The extras are top great with making of the movie, all the fake clips, commentaries and many more.

Silence of The Lambs – Criterion Collection (OUT OF PRINT)
Price: $9
Got this last week, this rare and very early Criterion is not the best verison of the film on DVD, but it’s Criterion so you can forgive it.

Brazil – Criterion Collection
Price: $30
November is when I got this baby by Terry Gilliam. A bureaucrat in a retro-future world tries to correct an administrative error and himself becomes an enemy of the state. Again a early Criterion that has three disc: Disc one is the version that Gilliam intended, disc two is extras, and disc three is the studio edited of the film. So the best version you’re ever gonna get of the film!

Spider-Man 2
Price: $5
Best of the three Spidey films and has some nice extras!

Hot Fuzz– Three Disc Collectors Edition
Price: $30
Just got it yesterday! Made by the Shaun of the Dead guys, London cop is transferred to a small town and paired with a witless new partner and the pair stumble upon a series of suspicious accidents and events. This one has a TON of extras! So many to name! But this IS the BEST version yer gonna get of this classic.

Superbad – 2 Disc Edition
Price: $20
Just got this yesterday also. Two high school seniors are forced to deal with separation anxiety after their plan to stage a booze-soaked party goes awry. Being a fan of Freaks and Geeks and Knocked Up, I though this was great and list of extras are awesome fun.

Well that’s some of the few DVDs I’ve gotten so far. Also I got this cute little puppy named Gypsy! More on her on a future post and more on the DVDs later!
