I'd never found a used copy of Criterion's 2-disc set of The Rock for less than $20 until I located a copy at Half Price Books for a paltry $6 this weekend. Woo-hoo! Now I havve that and another Michael Bay film, "Armageddon", on a Criterion DVD.

Razz

Anybody else find a great DVD sale lately?

Fuck off.

Anyway, Jack, I picked up Mississippi Burning the other day for a couple of pounds. No special features, but still a bargain I thought.

EDIT: Can I just state that now the spam reply has been removed it looks like I'm telling Jack to fuck off - that is most assuredly not the case. Cool

Relax. I take it personal if someone doesn't tell me to fuck off at least once a day.

Oh, and the DVD doesn't have an audio commentary by Alan Parker? The region-1 disc does. Then again, I'm not going to feel too sorry for you being that ya'll have the region-2 DVD of "Starman" which has an audio commentary by Carpenter and Bridges, which the region-1 here in the States does not.

Speaking of which, I'd like to get some kind of on-line petition going to Paramount urging them to let Carpenter and Russell do a commentary for "Escape From L.A.". It's the only feature-film of theirs that doesn't have one. While I think the film is pretty bad, we all know the undiluted joy that their commentaries can bring!

Oops, a double check does indeed reveal a Parker commentary - very nice.

And the Carpenter/Russell double act is still my favourite commentary ever.

And another awesome find that brightened by shitty day:

"Army of Darkness" Boomstick Edition 2-disc set for only...

...$5!

Razz

(By the way, this is my favorite of the "Evil Dead" trilogy.)
